What happened to McKinzie ?

McKinzie failed to perform yesterday as the prohibitive favorite against a very weak field, at his best distance and while on his home track.

Reports say he was blowing very hard after the race however his workouts up to this race and the spacing of races all indicate another problem.

Some are saying the track now at SA is very deep with more cushion but he has shipped to the East and won on deep tracks. BTW the new SA should bode well for horses from the East coast going to the BC. Over the years they have failed miserably and will be discounted again this year, players beware.

That is if the BC runs at SA. They had another catastrophic breakdown in deep stretch yesterday after just re-opening. Not only is the BC in question there, also the survival of SA itself is on the line. As PETA supported by a large segment of the population of California are on them worse than a Pitbull with lockjaw.

While SA is under attack from great forces and as a fan I hope they can triumph in their battle for survival.They are the lead element in this battle for all of racing and its future.

Of course there is always the possibility than the new protocols in place may be interfering with Baffert's magic wand.

Yes it could have been a prep for the big dance but a terrible fate for all those that bet on him, if so should have declared running for non betting purposes.


Going forward it poses a dilemma for bettors as to form for the BC race. Is he the same or over the top? If we play the race we'll all have to make that decision. We'll only know after the race. It may be more Baffert goofing around than the horse, neither is speaking. ha ha ha


Hope your well Bill and your Dad.

Feels like almost the next curse like Arrogate had.
Was popular when he rode his 7 race win streak into the San Diego Handicap and then finished 4th, 2nd and 5th after that.

Good form and then now feels like he is slipping away from Breeders Cup victory.

Welcome to the hotel California

Thanks, Mitch Dad and I are knocking along enjoying the beach and heading down the 101 to DeL Mar as much as we can

Mitch welcome to California racing, Short fields. Just to keep making the horsemen happy with joke graded races.
On a list of what is important the bettors and the welfare of the horses are at the bottom.

May have been a paid work Bill and very nice money if so. I believe in the BC I'll go against him through.


It doesn't get much better than the beach and Del Mar Bill.
