It's a real muddy mess here at Hawthorne this am.  Track is hard.  The talk among trainers is if the track does not get better ( it has stopped raining ) we'll gallop not breeze.  No use taking a shot with a horse whose knees may not be closed yet or shins might be tender.  That won't do the buyers or the sellers any good ( or the horses ).

Thanks G.
Will the horses still be able to run in the stakes because they galloped instead of breezed?

Just a complete joke not to have the book on-line.  Any two bit web operator would scan the book into a PDF file for $50 or less.

Who is going to be at the sale?  I'm going and would like to meet some of you guys.

I'm not going because they are to cheap to put a catalog online. They must have nothing but shit horses, and don't want anyone to see before the sale.

There is NO WAY that I will enter any of my 4 yearlings into next years 2 yo sale in Illinios if they refuse to post a catalog online. I would rather go to any state wherwe they do it right.

In 2009 I will have 7 - 2yo's.
In 2010 I will have 12 - 2yo's.

If the ITBOF doesn't care about us owners and breeders - why should we care about them??

Better yet.

I will make an offer to the ITBOF and Arrigo Auctioneers.

Send me the catalog via e-mail or messinger, and I will post it on my personal website so that all can view it. I will also create a link page just for "Illinois Auction" so that everyone that is interested can easily find it.

This sale would do so much better if it were later in June and still at AP. If it were in June all the Illinois buy backs from the other sales from March, April and May could come back and go in the sale here. HUGE marketing mistake moving the sale from AP back to Hawthorne. But if there is a group more bassackwards than the ITHA its the ITBOF! Just look at the timing on this sale, the April OBS sale ends on Friday and the sale here is Saturday. Totally cuts out any consignor that even MIGHT try and sell here who has horses at OBS in April. Bad planning for the date bad marketing with no catalog on line. Still wish them luck and hope they do better next year planning the sale.

Jesus H., I never heard such whining! The catalogs are right where they have always been, every year since Hector was a pup, whether at Hawthorne or AP, on a table next to the license office. Get one of your many Hawthorne contacts to pick one up for you, or better yet, go to the track and get one for yourself like everyone else did.

That said, this is the new Millennium. They must have created this on a computer and it's so simple to post it to a web site. I'm surprised Haw didn't just post it.

/That said, our office is no better. We have certain documents that lawyers want to use to get potential clients and their minions have to come in twice a week or so and write down the information. One woman brings a portable copier. It's just stupid. I offered to put these docs on a web site, but noooooooooo!
