Why no weight allowance?

Looking at Sunday's entries at Santa Anita, see Evin Roman is named on a horse in the opener but with no apprentice allowance, yet the rest of the card he's got the 5 lbs off. I understand there's...

Changes announced

So the Breeders' Cup has decided to add a Juvenile Turf Sprint as an official event, and to boost the purse of the dirt sprint. I think whoever is on their board needs to be reevaluated because...

As long as the horse carried the weight the entire time to the finish line & jockey never touched the ground they're OK. Here's a good video on how to complete your exacta the hard way:

So when a race comes off the turf are you suggesting the remaining entrants all have their shoes changed the day of the race? Or are queens plates OK to handle the dirt/mud as well?

Sharp Azteca ran twice around 2 turns in 2017, Beyer figs of 108 & 107 so nothing to sneeze at. He had one start at 2 turns as a 3yo, not a bad effort then either but a little below par.

When it happens once or twice it's an anomaly, but the continuance of horses in Gulfstream's turf races who bolt inside or out when seemingly on their way to victory has got to be a concern. I think...

Wynn won't take on more than 20k in liability on a bet before dropping the odds big time, not much value to be had for large bets, in case you actually were entertaining visions of flying out there.

Do you think horsemen would prefer leeway with a condition book based on upcoming weather or other scenarios, or are they more interested in sticking to the book based on their training schedules?
