Invasor overpowers Classic field

Invasor’s victory was not even five minutes old, and the ESPN crew was debating whether Javier Castellano moved too quickly on Bernardini. Hogwash!!!! Invasor was just the better horse today. Give him credit. He’s now 9 of 10 lifetime and probably deserves to win Horse of the Year. Bernardini and Castellano didn’t do anything wrong, it was Invasor’s brilliance today that should be celebrated.

Lava Man? It appears that the verdict is now in — he’s just not a good shipper. He didn’t appear to have any excuses. Brother Derek had to set too quick a pace and had nothing left in the stretch. Strong field. Good race. Now the Breeders’ Cup heads to Monmouth Park in 2007. I can’t do any worse than I fared today at the betting windows. I picked Invasor to win in today’s edition, but my heart and money went with Lava Man and Brother Derek.

  1. What happen to the RARE that we all know in live? If Nintendo never did sell RARE to Microsoft them Nintendo and RARE would make milniols a Killer Instinct 3 would be good for 360, but no lets make something new something that the fans do not want!!! Microsucks

  2. Cars R Us!The post is quite revealing of ceraitn fundamental flaws in our perspectives on planning. The car is symbolic of mobility, progress and social and environmental disconnect all at the same time. Somehow, we have gotten accustomed to thinking within the box. To think out of it will require more than just a recognition of what has gone wrong. It will need a whole new vision of urban planning that is inspired by genuine human needs and not driven by short term commercial and political paradigms alone. The need for personal and green spaces in our towns and cities cannot be overestimated. We humans are designed to function most optimally in natural surroundings. While a concrete-steel-glass environment may represent development and growth, it is very likely to rob us of soul if it does not integrate the living and the natural into its folds. And a city without soul is like the sky without the sun!When will our planners give due importance to parks, public gardens,tree- lined roads, green homes and pathways for pedestrians and cyclists with the same zeal as they do now for malls and hotels; not that these are not important. But a city that pays homage to the deep human needs of its citizens (as much as to their economic ones) is likely to tilt the balance most favorably towards individual happiness and productivity.The rapid rise of motor car numbers upon Indian roads no doubt testifies to an emerging wealth consciousness amongst its people. But it is also a sad reflection of the innate chaos that informs Indian planning at large. Unlike the west, which developed good road systems first in order to be able to welcome and celebrate the automobile, we here in the developing world are putting the horse before the cart track quite literally. Witness space age Hyundais and Bentleys cruising upon roads barely out of the bullock cart era! The same retrofitting mind serves our urban planning initiatives as well. Unless we learn to develop holistic planning models and processes that put human wellbeing at its center, it is likely that our urban lives will be defined by congestion, pollution and space constraints that will ultimately eat into the rewards of our progress and prosperity. ><
