I noticed the same thing during the race Saturday. Thought it was dirty. Tried to think of a name for it, and the only thing that came to mind was “stalking horse,” which doesn’t quite fit.
It was mentioned but the announcers said it was fine that the rider was blocking.
i don’t care about horse racing but was rooting like hell for Justify as, some may remember, after American Pharoah won the triple crown in 2015 one of obama’s butty’s (david plouffe??) took to twitter and gave obama credit for the triple crown since Pharoah was the first horse in 30 years to pull it off...
hence once again it took President Trump 1/7th the amount of time to accomplish something it took obama...
It doesn’t really matter than George Soros is part owner of Justify, does it?
I figured this would be about the decision not to run Audible, thus making a Triple Crown more likely. Justify led from the beginning to the end.
He has a 13% share, AFAIK.
I assume that’s the back end of the horse (snicker)
soros owns the ass portion of the horse...
Im still waiting for the horse that can finish 35 lengths ahead of the field and break all of Secretariats records.
I dont expect to live that long.
Not particularly. His investment company owns 15% of the breeding rights. Its a safe bet anyone involved with training and racing the horse knows nothing about that at all. The poorly written report even seems to suggest that the Soros company had already flipped the investment before the race even began.
It's only fine the same way Obama didn't have to produce a real birth certificate.
In the old days, if the jockey on Noble Indy had claimed foul, both of Baffert's horses would have been placed behind Noble Indy, which is to say last and second to last. Suspensions would have been automatic.
I was hoping the guy with the rifle would have to come out.
That is part of racing... positioning...
Soros owns 15% of the winner horse. Any unsavory tactics used to win the race would be expected.
The name for it is "Soros"
It’s only fine the same way Obama didn’t have to produce a real birth certificate.
Speaking of which, check this out
A company that he is connected to will get 15% of Justify's stud profits.
That is different then partly owning the horse.
The smooth muscle part.
In b-ball it is called a picket or a pick... I think.
