Racing / NYRA Vet
September 15, 2018, 03:54:45 PM
In today's tenth race as the horses were loading in the gate I seen the track vet was at the side of the #5 horse looking at her mouth. She stepped back and then went to her again and  checked her again.  Apparently satisfied,e let them load her in the gate,while never taking her eyes off the horse.. The horse broke with the field  but steadily she backed up through the field and walked home.

I'm angry for her having no regards for the welfare of the Horse and the integrity of the game.  And lastly the horsplayers that wage our money on the horses

I don't know if you watch the replay you can see that, but trust me,that's what happened
Racing / Declared to Win

In the 20's [Exterminator was held back in order for his stalemate to win] a owner/trainer could declare one of his entries to win and the rider of the other could hold the other one back

I didn't know that they still doing that.  But after watching the 4th race @Saratoga when Javier had the race won when he took a look at the screen, and who is behind him? his stablemate, and he did his best to let them pass him.

Sour grapes on my part?

If anyone wants to see  why I don't like him on the horses that I bet on,just watch the third race at Belmont today!
He got boxed in a six horse field. He only wins when he has a horse that is ten leinghts better than the rest,and then again he wins by two.
BTW the horse opened at 1/9 and went off at 2/5,
Give me Jose Lezcano any time!!

But then again I love his horse in the fourth!! I don't know what to do.
Maybe I'll wait for the sixth for Quikpiknikk!!
