Suddenly Stopped

negli archivi ultimo

domenica 12 giugno

Despite numerous pleas and please and much beating of, not around, the bushes Sal was unable to find a new Dread Pirate Roberts to spend hours of unpaid time toiling on www.holybull.ca, pay for the website and contests out of his own pocket and receive little or no reward. As Sal said Sal’s got other pesci da friggere and with the 2016 Triple Crown races done Sal says arrivederci cavalli.

Phil loved to fill his blogs with quotes and songs. Sal will channel Phil today.

Sal says that it’s up to Alberta thoroughbred racing fans to make their own news site now.

I don’t think that my kind of journalism has ever been universally popular. It’s lonely out here.

The 2015 CTHS Alberta sales topper made his debut a winning one in sabato 11 giugno’s 3rd race for Norm Castiglione and Robert Vargo’s Riversedge Racing Stables Ltd. Norm’s Big Bucks broke from the 8 post in the 3 1/2 furlong race for conditioner Riley “John Daley” Rycroft with Rico Walcott in the irons. Norm’s Big Bucks pressed the pace set by the favourite, the aptly named Swaying, and took over down the lane to finish the 3 1/2 furlongs in 39 2/5 on a slightly off track .

Not to be outdone by his younger half brother King of the Rockies took the Northlands Park finale for conditioner Robert Pinky MacDonald with Rico Walcott in the irons.

Both Norm’s Big Bucks and King of the Rockies were bred by Highfield Stock Farm out of the Cobra King mare Fabulous Brush by Exhi and Cape Canaveral respectively.

Sal says thanks to Northland’s Park track announcer Matt Jukich for doing the research and letting the fans know.

Fabulous Brush is also the mother of stake winner Quenoftheforest.

 Sal says that the circus was in Edmonton yesterday in a big tenet on Edmonton Northlands parking lot, but the real circus will be this fiasco that Horse Racing Alberta has licensed to run at the getting ever more bush Hillbilly House League.

Sal simply says that running a bush league joke with rules that seem to be made up as they go along is not the way to improve the professionalism of the thoroughbred horse racing industry in the province of Alberta.


I find fault with my children because I like them and I want them to go places – uprightness and strength and courage and civil respect and anything that affects the probabilities of failure on the part of those that are closest to me, that concerns me – I find fault.

Branch Rickey

While we’re on the subject of improving the professionalism of the thoroughbred horse racing industry in the province of Alberta will we ever see any leadership from Horse Racing Alberta.

Equibase Race results Lethbridge Friday June 20, 2016

Equibase reports an $11.00 Superfecta pool with a $6.60 payoff for a 6-All-All-All ticket.

Sal simply says that is not the way to improve the professionalism of the thoroughbred horse racing industry in the province of Alberta.

  One Response to “Hawthorne Sal Suddenly Stopped – negli archivi ultimo”


    WOODBINE celebrates it’s 60th anniversary today, how will NORTHLANDS celebrates its retirement of live horse racing, as the limited exclusive HOLYBULL t shirts become collector items.

    NORTHLAND t shirt company is rumoured to have a agreement with NORTHLANDS PARK for the production of a final faIrwell t-shirt of a saddled riderless horse with a sunset in the background, must have a valid 2017 HRA license and cash, since their austerity plans will have a limited number.

    THOROUGHBRED purses are not to increase this year, ask your local HBPA rep. what the $1 million discretionary project funding to CENTURY DOWNS or 379k to NORTHLANDS in 2015 was used for. It involved horses with hobbles as HBPA keeps getting hobbled in their purse structure compensation.

    HRA BUSINESS PLAN pg 32/47 item 14 states contingency of 300k to meet unexpected revenue shortfalls (up 49%) and increased cost increases that a SURPLUS of $1 MILLION is achieved and maintained. Tenile’s abacus showed a DEFICIT of 740k, close but no clinton cigar IN 2015.

    MINNESOTA RACING COMMISSION passes a new law that will redirect revenue generated from fines to fund the repurposing and retirement of race horses at the end of their racing careers, with the ANIMAL WELFARE budget at 21k(drug testing) out of $42.71 MILLION, is the equine population being left out!

    CENTURY DOWNS announces a guaranteed $15k WIN 4 for RDC on june 26, with a win 4 carry over of $1276.68 and a total 10 race handle of 68k yesterday, XMAS comes early for the punters.

    UNDERTAKER will he be launching a marketing campaign for this event or ALBERTA DONS, with his track record OF a increase of 880k in funding, and a GAIN? of 500k last year in live racing, and a total decrease of $3.3 million, the minister with the legislature ending will finally be doing his ABC reviews!

    CAPTAIN & TENILE may be celebrating the demise of HOLYBULL, but with start of ABC cuts, even the Diamond Jim furniture for tenile pact will be in trouble, as a massive IKEA SALE is being announced.
