Oh, who cares?


Just ignore everything that happens on Friday, like everybody should.

Any horse can run in BC if nominated and fees are paid.  Once nominated the committee goes through each field and gives prefrence to the strongest. This horse gor lucky cause field is so small

Actually, the horse got unlucky, since he'll most likely take a butt kicking.  The owner sort of got lucky, in the sense of getting into the race, but perhaps less lucky in the sense of being publicly exposed as a an egotistical, idiotic jackass.

I can't disagree with you there, but with the no lasix, anything can happen. Anytime a Bob Hess Jr horse is favored, I want to be in that race, quite honestly.

It's possible because there are too many BC races for the actual number of quality horses being produced.

He's literate and funny.  I can see why he angers you so.

What's worse is that he isn't even the highest morning line.

Very well said. Agree that owner= smoking bath salts, crazy, lol would this qualify as a slight step up in class? Of course, you do realize, if horse wins we're the jackasses? Obviously that's a chance we're all probably willing to take

Thanks for answer guys

A few years back there was a $5k claimer from Penn National that ran in the BC, a race on the grass, they ran the race, went to a commercial, came back had the winners circle interviews, then the horse finished, it was sad, I remember there was a lot of talk by the BC heads that they wanted to make sure this didn't happen any time soon... I guess soon has past....

So, Ceiling Kitty has a longer morning line. That makes little to no sense. The horse won a Group 2, beating a 27 horse field, and finished fewer than 3 lengths out of a Group 1.... on the turf, but still. Hazardous went off at 8-1 in a $22.5 claimer and is now predicted to go off at 8-1 in a $500k stakes race.

Actually, this race came up so short and soft that it makes perfect sense to me now that I've looked at it.

I had forgotten about RNS until you brought it up. The story is even more outrageous than I remembered

Good story, thanks. If had never run in the BC Turf, he probably would have ended up in a bad situation but he is now living out his years in style. Maybe that was the owner's plan all along... no.
