Pedigree Profile: Tonalist

A Clement that runs (and runs) on the dirt!?! Say it isn't so!

He can wear the nasal strip.

Trainer Bob Baffert cites "foot bruise". Colt is fine, but headed to Rood & Riddle for full work up just to be safe. Pablo Del Monte draws in.

Frank Stronach announced Wednesday that all Stronach-owned racetracks will have an in-house "strictly regulated pharmacy" and will prohibit "anyone from having any medications in their possession unless those medications have been properly prescribed for a therapeutic treatment program." In addition, there will be automatic drug testing for all horses who ship in to race.

Beyer: Keep it simple

5

Great piece by Andy Beyer in the DRF. I completely agree about the conditions. Being able to compare conditions nowadays is almost impossible, with the Optional Claiming ranks convoluting it. I am of the opinion that you shouldn't see OC anywhere but at the $75k and up price tag where you are actually mixing the top end claimers with the lower achieving allowance runners. The OC16 is ridiculous.
