And yet they travel all over the world and show up to win.
How many traveled to run for this big purse?
How many were invited?

What's the purse? This is real simple, CJ. The amount paid out is the purse, whether you like it or not.

And black type means more than a single purse, so you need to step up and start a huge, loud, obnoxious campaign against the Dubai carnival like you do here.

Frankly I don't care what they do in Dubai. I hate the place. I wouldn't accept an all expense paid trip to the race. But it really has nothing to do with the Pegasus, not a thing.

Never been there but you hate the place.

What they do in Dubai is more about real horse racing then what they do at Gulfstream Park.

What makes you think I've never been there? You create stuff out of thin air. I've been there and know a whole lot about it. Guarantee I know a lot more about it than you do.

I don't think disallowing ordinary citizens from betting while the ruling class bets in the European book shops is more about real racing.

Nor do I think using a dictatorship's oil riches to subsidize purses and buy the best horses while destroying traditional big races is about real racing.

I far prefer GP, with all of its problems, to Dubai.

This does nothing for American racing. It's just a vanity project for Frankie who can at least say for a few months to whomever will listen 'hey, mine is bigger than yours.'

Tell you what Frankie - since you (allegedly) put up $4M of your 'own' (not including the last 3 slots you had to buy and pawn), how about for this one race giving us players the same 'invitation' as you do the owners. I will put up $2K in advance to bet if you guarantee me a 65% rebate as you do the owners.

Not a bad race in the end but just another race. Does GR's stud fee increase even more due to another (albeit fake) G1 victory? Though I guess most black-type definitions are arbitrary.

When the head of that country is also the owner of the track, Darley, and Godolphin, your politics (and ours) are relevant, though I'll give you if you still don't want to talk about it.

I have no desire to go there, therefore I don't think a free trip makes up for an awfully long plane ride to a place I have no desire to go.

It is a PA.com rule, no politics in the horse sections. Maybe this week I'll start a thread in off topics.

I ain't holding my breath on this one. As I recall all the "stans" you've been in that surround Dubai.
