What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

This question will take a bit of thought process. For the obvious,i will disqualify Secreteriat from the equation. Here goes............Who is the most talented Race Horse that you have seen race LIVE. By that i mean in person and not on any media feed. I know many may be younger and have not seen them all. But keep in mind,there is no right or wrong answer. Again the stipulation is the most TALENTED HORSE you have seen LIVE. Mine is Ruffian in the slimmest of margins over Seattle Slew.

Thursday's 8th race (4:00pm PT) from Los Alamitos is an $8,000 claiming event for 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the main track. #6 Warren's Tyler S. (3-1) clearly favors dirt (17-3-4-2) and exits an encouraging 3rd on turf (4-0-0-1). He is back on preferred footing and won at this distanc...Read More
  • Mary Z. · Only two I like in this race are 3 Go Black Tie and 6Warren's Tyler S. Other is 9 Tama County. This hideous and all "class droppers" would not surprise me. I realize the only other choice for a play at Los Al on Thursday is the 2yo maiden race. Small fields otherwise. · 36 minutes ago ·
In an interesting comment thread today on Horse Racing Nation, we were asked which horse, barring Secretariat, was the most talented we ever saw in person. I’ve been lucky enough to see all the American greats of the last 40-plus years, yet still, I did not need to think long about my answer. It was...Read More

For Americans, 1965 presented several events that would go on significantly to affect changes that are still present in their society today.For one th...Read More

  • Buckpasser via Disqus · Fred. You know my feelings about Buckpasser. I saw him race on numerous occasions in NY. My favorite race of his was the Champagne stakes as a two yr old. He had been beaten by a long neck in the Futurity by Priceless Gem ( later the dam of the immortal Allez France) and this was a big race for both. Buckpasser was way out of it and no one thought he could get there, but he came around the outside and his closing power was phenomenal as he picked off horses as if they were standing still. He won by his largest margin over four lengths and had to survive a foul claim as well. Priceless Gem finished sixth that day. The quarter crack that side lined him in his three yr old season came back as a four yr old just as he was beginning his campaign on the West Coast and was winning races on his way to the Santa Anita Handicap. Sadly it came back again at the time of his victories in the Handicap Triple Crown. He retired after the Woodward of 1967 and I felt that he was a spent force in the walking ring for the Race of the Century that day and I believe he would have given Damascus a real run for his money if they had met when he was in his prime. His bad feet came from his sire line with Equipoise, renowned for his Shelly feet. Buckpasser was great sire of fillies and led the Broodmare sires list, which is not a surprise given the mare quality he got, such as Natalma, the dam of Northern Dancer, Aspidestra, the dam of Dr. Fager and many others. He also accomplished something I don't has been done by many if any horse: he won the Suburban handicap a race both his sire and dam won. · 16 hours ago
  • Buckpasser via Disqus · Interesting bit about Great Power pictured with Buckpasser. He was a rabbit for Buckpasser on many occasions, including the Woodward of 1967. He was by Bold Ruler out of High Voltage a winner of 10 top stakes races. His half Brother, Impressive was the rabbit for Buckpasser in the Arlington Classic and set the initial torrid fractions. · 4 hours ago
Here's a video of him galloping today at Santa Anita. Makes me so excited ! :) http://www.hrtv.com/videos/?VideoCategoryId=2&VideoId=tc/4izMmSVNVqZkxVMs/X4+SXm7qSfPC1oAI4LZALxY=

http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/86255/former-penn-clocker-enters-plea-agreement. This is why i never pay attention to what the clockers show on the PPs. One thing Vic says that is true,unless you are there or know someone who was there to see them work,they are meaningless. I am not saying that this is a common practice. I am sure this is the exception and not the rule. But if you are risking your money,why chance it and wonder if you are betting on the exception or the rule. The only thing that a published workout can concrtely tell you. That on that day,the horse more than likely was on the track and he worked. That at least shows that they are healthy enough to work.
