run for the hills in ohio
« on: April 27, 2022, 04:47:44 PM »
look out the burke brigade is coming to a track near you
had 4 in the hackett for fillies and finished 1,2,3
has 5 in the hackett  for colts
that's 9 and 6 of them are downbytheseasides
and then onto the sires/buckeye races where you have  the best from 2021 waiting , gulf shores, sea silk, pebble beach etc
and i assume a bunch of 2 yr olds on the way
unfortunately a lot of small to mid size stables about to get a bad feeling this year
those well saids, pet rocks, yankee cruiser  etc are going to have a tough time chasing burkes downbytheseasides

OUCH!!!
off to the fairs i guess

I saw how Wrenn opened a hole for Page since their both are playing for the same team. That what happens when the majority of the field is from one barn. The days of a level playing field are over in Ohio. It's a shame all the major Stakes $ is being sucked into Burke's pocket. Feel for the smaller stables.

exactly, i am sure the "rules" among the burke drivers is don't kill/screw each other the first half and after that it is every driver for himself

of course this could be resolved if associations/commissions had the balls to limit the number of horses in any stake final from the same trainer at 2, they can have  2 per elimination or legs but they must pick only 2 for the final ,should especially be the case for regional sires stakes etc races,

That would be right way, but nothing can be fair when the large stables hold most the chips on the tables. They dominate from the auctions right through to the winner circle. The little guys are left with only the crumbs.

I don't remember it being so lopsided in Ohio back in the 70's, 80's & 90's as it is now. Of course the purses have change.

More. More. More.
That's what you guys wanted and now you got it except you will never touch it. Greedy fuckers should have been happy with a high % of a smaller amount compared to 5% if that much of the larger amount.

If thatís the case, then why does Matt Kakally park Yannick entire mile in borgata final. They both are drivers for burke. Stop already

Lots of options in Ohio with good purses at all 3 levels.  Yes, there are a lot of big owners now in Ohio with the high purse structure, but that's also a plus for anyone selling a yearling.  It will force broodmare owners to upgrade their stock.  A wise horseman once told me, you breed dogs-you get dogs.  I would agree on the 2 horses per trainer in the finals, but i would be pissed if i owned one of the other horses from the same trainer that got excluded.  Wouldn't work.  If you pay all of the bills, you have a right to race.  I was a little guy in that situation last year against the Beaver brigade, but you take your lumps like everyone else.

Yes everyone doesn't have a choice who owns horses. But the current playing field discourages ownership which isn't good for the sport.
