  • travel_vic · Address of old Hollywood Park was 1050 S. Prairie Ave. Inglewood, CA 90301. Prairie ran a long way down the road into several other cities and many at the track used to hang out at a watering hole on that very street. Century ran down on side of it, still a dumb moniker for a stakes race. · 2 days ago

Simply put, the million dollar showdown Saturday at Parx is the best field of three-year-old fillies assembled in 2014, bar none.Read More

  • Mike in SB · This would be a big win for Stopchargingmaria, and I agree would move her to the top of the 3 year old filly division. Untapable will be tough though, although if Stopchargingmaria stays at 7-2 she gets my bet. · 3 days ago

Another G1 win for Sacred Falls today in the George Main Stakes at Randwick. Got the split late then pulled away nicely, much the best. Replay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0k1VuKZKkrU
How many more races would he have won if he raced under today's conditions where no horse is burdened with 130-140 lbs. like Kelso had to carry in so many of his races?
Highly progressive last season in France under trainer Andre Fabre, Sky Hunter scores his first win for Godolphin and trainer Saeed Bin Suroor in the UK with a win in the listed Dooneside Cup at Ayr.

  • Brian Poppenberg via Disqus · What respect I did have for you is gone after reading this. To blame the owners like myself and my partners for the results in Florida is factually incorrect. Every placement of the horses was done in coordination and in discussion with the trainers. We also were @ the mercy of the condition book last I checked. While I personally didn't start many there, my partners started numerous times and are some of the classiest people I know, and for you to speak of them like that is just wrong. We supported your outfit in many ways outside of racing as well and always put horses first. Instead of blaming owners, maybe take responsibility for their performances. Without owners, you have nothing. · 2 hours ago

I wish Andre Fabre had raced De Treville in a Listed race before trying for a G3 - Evasive's First was much the better with the benefit of plenty of experience on top of talent. There didn't seem to be too much between De Treville and Cherek, who were close for second and third and similarly raced before coming to Longchamp for their first big race. All in all, I think Dar Re Mi's son did pretty well. :) I wouldn't be surprised to see him improve, especially as a 3 year old. At the rate he's going hopefully he'll be able to win a listed race or G3 with one last race this year, and then next year he can really go for it. He's in the best hands you could hope for~

  • Michelle Hatton via Disqus · Remember Seabiscuit......he wasn't much to look at but he had the "heart" and this is the unknown factor. I have seen many horses that have great pedigree but do not make the grade on the track. That is why it is a "total package" and nobody can predict who will win today (wish I could). I hope all have a safe trip and I'm glad Sherman understands a prep race before the BCC in November is a good thing. Let the racing begin...... · 3 hours ago

  • geldedridgling · At least they are willing to experiment, even if it's just an attempt to increase his value at stud. One fundamental difference between Dan and Golden Cents is Dan's probably a 9 furlong horse who's dominate at 8, whereas Golden Cents is an 8 furlong horse that is dominate on a good day at 7. His front running style on turf is only good if he can get loose on the lead, so if Silver Max shows up he could easily run into a buzzsaw. · 16 hours ago
  • MayaJoffe · I just hope this time it's on turf. 2013 Shadwell Off-turf Mile-and-a-sixteenth. Rained so hard, they moved it to the main track and ran it at a 1 1/16 miles. Silver Max was loose on the lead and stole the race. · 5 hours ago

  • Northport · In my mind, if he wins for the 3rd time, many will remember him as great, legendary, vastly superior that Euros, etc. If he loses, people will say it was because of his layoff, surgery, etc. and still hail him as great. I agree with Tom though, in that if Wise Dan wins the Mile and he is HOY again I will be a little shocked. · 1 day ago
