Mounting horses from the left or “near” side goes way back to the days of men carrying swords on their left hips. Try mounting from the right or “off” side and you’ll find you’ll get entangled in or...

Then tell us what the injury is, release the vet report, show us why an extremely fit horse is being said of in mid-July that he can’t get back to the races in October.

Zayat was taking zero risk. He'd already sold the horse's breeding rights so it was actually to his benefit given he got to pocket any purse earnings to keep him racing.

But otherwise I agree...

He isn't worth $75m. That's just another case of how people inflate the supposed value of big horses. It's closer to $50m. In any event, your point furthers my case while at the same time avoiding...

As others stated, it’s getting harder and harder to find anything to like about this sport.

So now the TC winner retires “due to filling in his ankle.” No one thinks to ask any follow up on that...

He hasn’t been syndicated. At least not yet, and I wouldn’t think ever. The options appear to be either a sale to Coolmore or stand with multiple ownership.

It's too bad that Stronach doesn't just take this nation's funds to put towards a horse race purse. Clearly, that's far less offensive.

What do you reckon happens when you pull a horse's head to the left with the reins?

They sure have to be on the right horses to make that work. I'd bet (ha) that they could try that 100 times and fail 100 times. The horses have far too much to say in the outcomes.

I've always thought Rose should be in the Hall of Fame.

Betting against yourself is one thing. Betting for yourself is extra incentive to do your best to win. I've no problem with that.

Don't tell me there's nothing here. Get over yourself. This has been a quite common complaint in racing, and for some reason a few of you are defending it this time. Maybe because it's Mott and a...

What does this have to do with anything?

The point is that Mott was suspended yet his barn continued normal operation. Now, to most people, they don’t see that as much of a punishment, instead it...

Bingo. It's inane that Serling and PA are overlooking your point and twisting what you said.

NYRA (hey Andy, that includes Saratoga) dropped the ball here. A suspension should mean a...

You kiss up to Serling at every chance. Embarrassing for you.

For those unaware, going to Florida for the winter does not equate to Mott not spending most of the year on the NYRA circuit, which...

I apologize. And here I thought Saratoga was part of NYRA. Silly me.

But thanks for skipping over the important part, which is that Mott is on suspension which means zilch when the trainer under...

You’re missing the point. A trainer on suspension shouldn’t be able to run his horses who are racing under another trainer “on paper.”

Isn’t Mott at NYRA most of the year? But she’s in charge,...

Tom is 100% wrong. No one enters a MSW or allow to get a $3k payday. The wins are what an owner needs to stay afloat in this sport. It is always better for the bottom line to run where you can win...

Much ado about nothing.

Yet again we let the drug debate center around something as insignificant as Lasix.

The 50% or so who give for breezes and then scope after every work, you think they’re going for enhancing the performance of their works?

Or in Europe, where they give for works, just not race...
