What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Saturday's 11th race (6:23pm ET) from Belmont Park is the Grade 3 Belmont Sprint Championship for 3-year-olds and up dashing seven furlongs on the main track. #2 The Big Beast (7-2) owns early-pressing versatility and won the G1 King's Bishop at this distance last year. He smartly won his ...Read More
Shared Belief needs to practice his rating skills. Getting crossed over by other horses in a race like Breeders is no excuse for losing. It takes skill to get through the pack and if he can do that he can be more consistent. Otherwise he may never recover to his best and beat other horses with better rating skills.
The 2015 Haskell is sure to be the most celebrated in its near half century history, but that’s not to say there haven’t been plenty of huge editions in the past.Read More
  • Andy Scoggin via Disqus · One of my favorites was back in the Monmouth Invitational days of the Haskell in 1976 with Majestic Light. It was my equivalent of Brian's Five Star Flight experience when I cashed my biggest bet on the Phipps runner as he set a track record at the overlay price of 9-2. · 8 hours ago
I am really liking this guy more and more in Tommorrows Los Als' Derby. The track is playing very strong to inside speed. After getting my speed sheets,i see that Kentuckian is hardly as fast as adverised. Martin should be in perfect position on the front end.
It's official -- American Pharoah will make his next start in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park!Read More

  • Bill B. via Disqus · I used to live within walking distance from Monmouth. The good old days. Well, not really, but it's a terrific track and where I discovered my interest in racing as a young lad. Too far away now though. I highly doubt this will be a competitive horse race. What major three year old wants to face him?! · 13 hours ago

The American Triple Crown season has been completed for a month, but the Canadian version is set to get underway on Sunday. Read More
  • Andy Scoggin via Disqus · I met Reade Baker this past winter in Delray Beach, FL, at a newstand. Delray is where Palm Beach Downs training center is located. We talked about racing for quite a while. He was a really nice guy! I'll be rooting for him. · 8 hours ago

Jerry Bailey on the Belmont Stakes coverage mentioned that he is done for the year. Bob Ehalt made a similar statement in a recent column on ESPN. It seems like he may be taking the rest of the year off. Get well soon Shared Belief. We miss you.
  • David via Disqus · Unfortunately he may never recover, but he is a good horse. Unfortunately he missed some of the big races. · 4 hours ago
Tonalist disappointing in the Met Mile I thought sure he would win.
Shrinking Violet and Sharp Sensation
