Who is Steve Asmussen leaving in the barn....Gun Runner? You must be kidding me.

Blanket accusations tend to get you in trouble.
they are called generalizations and I did not know where and when Grand Jete is running, thats why I asked.

I have no idea why you are taking the opposite side...maybe your right and its my perception that horses are skipping preps, lets visit again when we see the fields for these Grade 1 races coming up. Maybe you are right.

Feels like the wise guy horse of the year especially after she jogs in her prep at Belmont.

really no value now on her, everyone in the world saw that trip. if you really think she is that good then I guess the BC is a place to find some.

You didn't "ask" Greg.

I think keeping good horses out of important races is a problem in the game. However, making generalizations weakens anyone's argument.

Thanks Andy! Keep up the great work for NYRA! Your Twitter acct is one of the better follows out there as well, esp when losers take constant potshots at you. The guy last week with zero followers took the cake!

Vale Dori out of BC

Backstretch sleuth Ed Golden of Santa Anita reports that Vale Dori will not be running in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint. “She just wasn’t showing me a lot and has tailed off in her works,” trainer Bob Baffert said. “We’re going to freshen her up, give her 60 days off and have her ready for the Spring meet.

I read this AM that Castellano has been booked on West Coast, which would be a clear indication that Arrogate will run and that Smith is staying with him.

Ulysses wants nothing to do with the soft ground this Weekend.
Now official for the BC Turf.
The race just got a little more interesting.

The Euro 3yo fillies in the FM Turf will be extremely dangerous. Hydrangea put in a fantastic winning performance and Persuasive, who has been beaten by that one as well as twice by Roly Poly in all three of her starts this year, just ran down Ribchester in the QEII.
