What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

The connections of Polar River are going to send her to America to run in the Kentucky Oaks, as long as she is 100%, multiple sources reporting. If she runs like this in May, Songbird will be in for a fight.
Mentioned her in the Cathryn Sophia/Songbird conversation yesterday, and all she does it go out and CRUSH the 1000 Guineas. Does anyone know if her owners are considering the KY Derby/Oaks?

To me, Polar River has been one of the real bright spots so far at this year's carnival. Once again, she bolts up to beat Promising Run easily, this time by a city block, to win the UAE 1000 Guineas, keeping her unbeaten record in tact.
Come on Exaggerator & take it to the champ. I know you can give him a run for his money at least.
His mother will be bred to American Pharoah :) via Ahmed Zayat twitter.
She will be bred to American Pharoah ^^
Toews on Ice out of San Vicente with quarter crack.
I am starting to suspect that Songbird is really a colt who just identifies as a filly.
One of the eight probable runners for the Santa Maria could be sitting on a career best effort in the third leg of the late Pick 4 -- Watch now to find out who!Read More
Can Nyquist Win the Kentucky Derby ... What do you think?Read More

  • Mary Moore via Disqus · I say 'Yes". He can win it, but of course that doesn't mean he will. The argument of "only one Juvenile winner has won the derby" and "only one undefeated Juvenile winner has made it to the Derby" kind of doesn't sit well with me. Just because it happened only once, doesn't mean it won't happen again. Also, when you compare the 141 times the Derby has been run to the 32 times the Juvenile has been run, the Juvenile is a pretty "young" race. So, it makes sense to me that only one Juvenile winner has won the Derby. But that's just how I see it. · 23 hours ago
  • AndyScoggin · I vote NO, it is not easy to win the Derby. Frankly, there are horses that I like better. · 22 hours ago
The HorseCenter guys talk about Songbird’s magnificent 2016 debut and the most recent Kentucky Derby doings.Read More
Keen Ice might not be the Greatest race horse ever, but lets look at only some facts. 1. He is the only horse to defeat our triple crown champion. (yes there was a speed duel, but Keen Ice proved that he is a grade 1 horse...cannot be argued) 2. The last 2 races were at tracks that are historically tough on closers. 3. His breeding clearly suggests that his best race is yet to come. (Almost every horse with Kris S in the pedigree got better with age....Rock Hard Ten and Zenyatta to name a couple) A trainer does over a few dozen things to prepare a horse for a race. This includes "prep races". It is hard for any normal human being to understand that a trainer isn't "trying" to win a $500,000 race. If you take into account that it is preparation for a 1,000,000, 2,000,000, 5,000,000 or 10,000,000 race, it becomes easier to understand. A racehorse does his/her hardest running during 2 circumstances. 1. A horse is trying to pass, and must be fought off 2. The horse is using all his/her power to pass another horse During these 2 moments, the absolute most wear and tear occurs, which takes recovery time. Anybody who thinks that Dale Romans doesn't know what he is doing....... well if Keen Ice remains healthy, you will soon understand
  • Ross via Disqus · I almost feel bad for people who'll keep betting on the horse hoping that "That would be the race he finally wins" when they know the horse is 2-14 and needs severe pace collapse to win and yet bet on him due to his sire or his trainer or his win against AP. As soon as I saw him get bet odds on last Saturday, the highest I put him in my super was 3rd, which was even a waste of money after the fact. So please, keep betting him down so we get better odds on better horses. · 1 day ago
  • Ferrisjso26 · Yeh he's a G1 horse and when he's got a long distance a fast pace and a good trip he can do literally anything and even without these things usually is closing. However he simply can't outrun other great horses unless they're exhausted. KI will win some big money this year he doesn't need to win to do that (especially at Dubai cough cough CC) Dale Romans knows what he's doing but he can't make the horse something he's not. KI can run forever he simply can't outrun fast G1 fields. · 12 hours ago

BREAKING NEWS: Gift Box, 3rd place finisher in the Remsen behind Mohaymen, will miss the Risen Star next week after he missed a workout due to a slight cough, no word yet on how serious it is, but Chad Brown says that he could be rerouted to the Gotham in March or the Tampa Bay Derby, but too soon to tell.

Why is Cape Speed ranked #11. He shouldn't even be on this list.
