UNFREAKINBELIEVABLE

What does this horse owe them?

And its been obvious he has problems, so I dont wanna hear he wants to be a race horse.
Im sure he would enjoy green pastures over a breakdown.

CARRYING 127 LBS head shake head shake

giving 17 lbs to one of the other horses..

my feeling is that Helicopter will scratch as Larry just wanted to make sure that the race filled.
RR obviously wants to dump ROCK ON RICHIE

Purple,

If you read the condition, for each $1,000 increase in claiming price, the entry receives 2 lbs.  So, if they wanted helicopter to run for the 4K tag, he would have been running at 115 lbs.  Why would they have pushed to claiming price/weight up if they were going to scratch...it probably wouldn't have mattered to the racing secretary at Beluah...

Strictly a wild guess but maybe to give the illusion that they actually plan to run him? He was entered for 10k at Hawthorne in the fall so maybe this makes it look like they really plan to run him.

Didn't do much for $18k last out.  $10k is about right.  That 1 1/2 mile race at BEU may be a good tune up.  Doubt he gets claimed.

Dano,

I think you are missing the point

I don't have Helicopters lines in front of me, but I have followed him for a few years
Its been very apparent over the last 1.5 years hes having some issues at 7 years old I think its safe to assume physical.

Hes won 20 outta 60 starts, made 350k, do they really need to drop him in for 10k at Beluah of all places?
Whats wrong with a nice retirement?

If this was Baffert or D. O'Neil dropping one like this everyone would be screaming.
