What If There Was No Curlin?

Look, I'm on the fence too. I think Curlin is a horse for the decade. He is a horse whose races will be watched years from now, both wins and losses. HOWEVER, I don't believe he's a lock in the Breeders' Cup Classic, so instead of trying to come up with an excuse I'll just pretend he's not in the race and let reality provide the need or non-need of an excuse....

Breaking Down the BC Juvenile Fillies Turf

The F&M Sprint is the first BC race, and I hate to say it, but it's the one I'm looking forward to the most. This will be the most competitive race, and the proof I use to claim this? The horses entered are in the money 77% of the time. ... Read More

Now entering its 3rd year of coverage on the Cable network, I feel like an underfed kid at the dinner table, fed some leftovers instead of the 5 course meal I was promised.... Read More

Why Nobody Else Uses a Circular Firing Squad Anymore

As a rule, I never get lost. If I did, which is patently absurd given the aforementioned rule, I certainly would never stop and ask for directions; some might characterize my behavior in such situations as willfully obtuse. They are obviously out of touch with reality.... Read More

Rethinking the Breeders' Cup

As a fan, call me underwhelmed. The Breeders' Cup returns to Churchill Downs in 2010, and, once again, horse racing has missed the boat in terms of updating what has become, unfortunately, "the' defining event of America's thoroughbred industry.... Read More
