Horse racing talk thread....

Maybe this will be simpler than starting a new thread everytime I want to discuss something about racing. 🙂

Maximum Security races today, first start since the Derby. Gonna be interesting to see.

Also, Omaha Beach is back in California, and getting prepped to race again. Very likely he will be going up against MS. That will be even more interesting.
@aubie are you watching races today?

Yes I'm watching. Won a tournament at Belmont that just closed. Got one mixed Monmouth and Belmont about to open with MS as my first pick. Appears he is up against a cream puff field.

And a Emerald Downs about to go off. Won a couple there last night. What was interesting is in between races they had Indian relay races. They rode bareback which I assume is keeping with tradition. I had never seen them before.

Unbelievable. And the tournament I was in is a lockdown so he probably cost me that right from the get go.

Just watched another Indian race. As far as I can tell the only rule is both feet have to touch the ground when swapping horses.

They run half the track and swap, kinda looks like pit row.

Emerald Downs in in Washington state. Most seem to be Crow

Pretty interesting.

Sounds interesting. Have to check that out.

As to Maximum Security - the trainer didn't seem too eager to be running him in the race. Went so far as to do blood work on him ( which came back ok). Maybe Servis was right, and he is off.

Looking forward to following Omaha Beach recovery and race training...

Mott says Country House done for the year.

We're just going to give him a little extra time,” said Mott, adding that the owners intend to race Country House as a 4-year-old. “We brought him back, and he was happy. When we began seriously training, he wasn't as eager to begin his work. I think we just need to give him a rest.”
