Weekend News and Notes

Female Jockey Jackie Davis rides home another longshot at the Big A Saturday aboard Americanus in the 3rd, paying $20.80 to Win

Keeping pace with Davis was fellow female apprentice Jockey Maylan Studart winning on Senor Enrico in the 5th at Aqueduct, $13.80 to win.

What caught my eye in the Daily Racing Form article on IEAH's decision to keep running Stardom Bound in 2009 on the West Coast was the last paragraph mention that IEAH's Ivarone would consider a run of the fine filly in the Kentucky Derby if Stardom Bound continues to impress. Gee, can you imagine the mock outrage to be spewed forth by the PETA loons should this actually happen?

Whereas Cable Television live horse racing coverage is sometimes limited to your local OTB simulcast feed on the tube, College Basketball fans have no such problem with at least 827 Division 1 College games set to be broadcast on Time Warner Cable in the New York Capital Region.

Finally, The TBA has added 4 fine blogs to our stable. Horseplayers Association (HANA), Pull The Pocket, Turk and Little Turk, and Triple Dead Heat.
