Storm Flag Flying next start?
CATHERINE623 writes, "She'll probably go to Florida with the other
Phipps horses. If you recall, last year Saarland was there and they
were trying to get him in an allowance but the races just wouldn't
fill. That's why he had such a late start in the Gotham. But I think
for now they still may be at Belmont since Saar just ran at Aqueduct."

Victor Carrero - the anti-Antley
SHELLY440 writes, "How horrendous.  I wouldn't bet on this guy if he
were the only jockey in a one horse race.  I used to think he was an
OK jock but not anymore. It is positively inexcusable to treat a horse
this way."  SHAYLEM replies, "Holy cow! I can't even imagine what would
make someone behave that way! Forget about worrying about professionalism
-- what about a little old-fashioned humanity and compassion?"
