One other thing. Does anyone know why Big Drama is on the injured reserved list at FormBlog? He just turned in a work and is pointing towards the Holy Bull at GP later this month.

Big Drama reportedly bent a shoe, and grabbed a quarter during the running of the Delta Jackpot.  He worked five furlongs on January 18, and should be ready for the Gulfstream race.  If you click on "View the Complete Disabled List," you should be able to access the entire spreadsheet.  It will show the name of the horse, the date it was added to the list, its age, sex, and pedigree, the trainer, the injury, the horse's last race, its next major goal, and most recent workout.

Dan,
You commented a few days ago about the way the Gulfstream Park Allowance conditions are being written (i.e. OC75k/N$Y) and equated them to traditional N#X.  There is no question that this is effectively the case in measuring difficulty and class level!   I was trying to figure out who this condition is being written for (it's presence annoys me) and so the question is "where are horses clearing allowance conditions with purses of less than $12,500 ($7,500 to the winner) coming from?"
Blue Horseshoe

The only thing that comes to mind right now is the South American shipper that won a prior condition for a deflated purse in his/her native land.  Still, the mislabeling of the conditions is a disservice to the horseplayer, and needs to be corrected immediately.

Dan-
I may have missed it, but is there a story on how or why, John Sherriffs came to be training Ryehill Dreamer?
Buffalo Joe

Ryehill Dreamer was privately purchased by Marsha Naify from IRS (Irish Racing Shares) Partnership, and turned over to Shirreffs.  While Ryehill Dreamer was no match for The Pamplemousse over the weekend, I have a feeling that Mr. Shirreffs didn't have him fully cranked up for his first start of the season.  Expect a forward move in his next start.

btw, couls someone tell me the name of the two horses who scratched in brother keith last race.  I wanted to track the one trained by tom amoss but i forgot to write it down, Thank you
tencentcielo

The Amoss horse scratched out of Brother Keith's debut win at Churchill Downs is Victory Lane.  He's a Giant's Causeway colt that finished sixth in his career debut on grass at Fair Grounds on December 27.

More tomorrow.

Take care,

Dan
