With the Pegasus distraction behind Sal can now get back to the task at hand – prognosticating and pontificating on the Kentucky Derby Trail which in Sal’s humble opinion obviously starts in earnest with the Holy Bull, Withers and Robert B. Lewis.

Sal says that if you start today you may have all of those recipes tried by Superbowl LIII.

Sal was scanning the Gulfstream Park PPs doing his late Pick 4 homework when an intriguing name popped up in the 9th: Quebec by Into Mischief out of the Distorted Humor mare Miss Canada. Sal did a quintuple take when he noticed the owner and breeder was Preston M(adden).

The same race features a half to Frosted, Godolphin’s Apiary by Bernardini out of the Deputy Minister mare Fast Cookie.

Noting the remarkable statistic that one in 310 Australians has a stake in a racehorse, Redvers offers a couple of specific examples that condense a culpable difference in attitude: the simple fact that syndicate partners all have their names listed in Australian racecards, and the diligence with which Australian trainers bombard their patrons with information.

“Obviously part of the reason is the prize-money and stallion values they have now,” Redvers continued. “Racehorses are viewed as furry lottery tickets. And of course it’s such a social thing, going racing there. But the other thing that really strikes is that they really feel like they’re owners–and one of the reasons is that their name is in the racecard. Here, for some reason, if you have more than three owners in a horse, you can’t get a fourth name anywhere. And that’s just because the administrator hasn’t got round to sorting out his computer, and doesn’t want the hassle. Which is frankly scandalous. However little their share–within reason, say up to a tenth–get their names in the racecard, let them brag to their friends, rather than this nonsense where they have to run under Syndicate 3.2 or whatever.”

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

Racing needs to better plan, implement, accept and manage substantial, simplifying change. One example would be a dramatic simplification of North American race conditions.

Who benefits (really, think about it) from a race open to horses which have never won two lifetime races, other than maiden/claiming/starter, or restricted allowance, or have never won three races, or which have not won a race since July 30, or optional claiming price of $62,500?

Horse Race Insider – Pricci – No Longer a Myth, Pegasus Soars

But Ritvo admitted that there is room for financial improvement for the race.

“It obviously didn’t do anywhere enough to be profitable for the shareholders,” Ritvo said, referring to the investors who put up $1 million each for the record purse. “What really is going to be the metric is how we did on NBC for a rating, and how we did on sponsorships for the future years. Sponsorships, NBC ratings and always growing the handle. Those are the three metrics to get the shareholders back more than what they invest.”

Ritvo said all aspects of the race would be reviewed, including the controversial $100 minimum ticket price, which was cut to $50 late Saturday afternoon. He said that was all along the plan as long as there was still room for more fans.

“We’re a company that believes you don’t make money on your admissions,” Ritvo said. “But on a special event like this, we had to try to see what we could do to grab some revenue back, because we invested a lot of money in the marketing of this. We’ll have to rethink that.”

  One Response to “Sal’s Suddenly Surfaced 2017 Holy Bull Preview dopo Pegasus”


    The winner of the coveted GOLDEN GAVEL AWARD for the leader in racing infractions/fines for the 2016 racing season is KELLY H with 12 rulings/$2000 fines, with last year champ TC a close 2nd with 11 infractions/ $1550 fines and 3rd place went to PHIL with 9 rulings/$1000. Thanks to their fine efforts HRA was able to achieve their $52,000 budget forecast, however the award was rumoured to have been melted down / pawned to help pay for shipping costs/gas/ PST for the CULLEN RACING relocation.

    CENTURY DOWNS / ASHA in a professional presentation seek 2017 racing club support for a membership fee of $250/2 horses with a March 17 deadline contact via email racingclub@cnty.com or call 587-349-7792 for further information, for this proactive fractional ownership venture.

    NORTHLANDS/HBPA have not started their fractional ownership drive ? with SCOTT SINCLAIR NP boasting of 25% full time ownership conversion/107 for the 2017 racing season versus CURTIS LANDRY realistic 10% conversion goal, perhaps SCOTT should review VISON 2020 pipedream blueprint for a realistic figure. Will SCott refrain from personally ripping down the Racing Clubs posters this year.

    NORTHLANDS is rumoured to be promoting a version of HAT DAY for the entire 2017 thoroughbred racing season with collection stations for uncashed race/slot tickets to be used for the purchase of toilet paper/light bulbs to ensure the safety @ welfare of all racing patrons/participants.

    HOT RUMOUR is that WESTERN FAIR slot operations will be unionized by UNIFOR, will the race announcer become part of this effort with such perks as 15 minute coffee breaks,valet parking, drone camera training, clothing allowance from sponsor TIP TOP TAILORS , part of his 6 figure compensation.

    HRA/NORTHLANDS disagreement is rumoured to be holding up 2017 racing calendar/purses with the abacus currently undergoing repairs and the fact NP laid off the mechanic last fall, the over and under is 98 days for harness, and 69 days for thoroughbreds, please send your guesses to ps@holybull.ca
