What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

If he's undefeated then why isn't he and another undefeated Canandian runner, Conquest Strate Up (who also has four undefeated races)? Is it just biased-ness against Canadian racers or?
Can Beholder join Zenyatta in becoming just the second female winner of the Breeders' Cup Classic?Read More
Nice nice horse, raced to death.
When will they learn....Can't wait til next years rendition of the Kelso. In 2014 Pliesa bypassed the JCGC with a horse who would of been the chalk , yet opted for the Kelso. By the way,he went off 3/5 and ran a horrible 3rd. In 2015 Shug followed suit,he did one up better. H.C. went off at 2/5 and finished an awful 3rd. Like i said,can't wait til next year for the next genius trainer. Don't know if it is bad Karma,or trainers knowing that their horses are not in peak form. But if they did and thought they were opting for an easier spot... Boo to the trainers for running their horses. To the HRN fans that tried to convince me that Shug was looking for the easier road to the BC Cup. How is he looking now. I said it prior to the race,and i will say it til i see him in the Starting gate on BC Day. This just solidifies my opinion. How will they run this horse,off of a non competetive race. To boot he would be facing the best in the World outside of New York.
Ran her heart out in the JSpinster today and still managed to hang on for a Show and a spot in the BC.
After a thrilling stretch drive it was Got Lucky who made the most of the opportunity with a narrow victory over Untapable and Yahilwa in Keeneland's Grade 1 Spinster.Read More
So watching the Spinster on NBC just now, Espinoza was interviewed and asked if there was anything he would have done differently in the Travers. He said he 'should probably have let Pharoah run a .23 and .47 half, he could run .22 if he wanted to'. So much for the 'not himself in the warm up' and 'tired horse' excuse.
Sunday's 9th race (5:45pm ET) from Keeneland is the Grade 1 Spinster for fillies and mares traveling a mile and an eighth on the main track.#4 Got Lucky (7-2) was not in the same league as Untapable last season but what a difference a year makes. Untapable is not as good this year and Got Lucky...Read More
ZATT's Star of the Week, is ... Golden Horn!
Why in the world is FA still racing when she's in foal? Is that advisable? I was shocked to learn this.
She got it!!!! Got Lucky wins the Spinster!!!! Another G1 winner for the great A.P Indy!! What a race.
With out winning yesterday, this was an awesome prep for Exaggerator. He got the two turn experience, split horses again, all the while not being 100%. Should set him up perfectly for the BCJ where Desormeaux will have him ready to fire.
Ocean Knight has been entered in a one mile allowance race at Saratoga this Friday, race 8, Irad Ortiz Jr. will ride.
Want to see another race between Exaggerator and Brody's Cause. To be honest I still think Exaggerator might turn out to be the better horse.
Hot damn that was beautiful to watch.
I'm starting to really like this colt. Despite the problems at the start, he managed to come back to make the win look easy! He accelerated nicely. He is bred for two turns and looks like a promising 2016 Derby contender. We'll see how he does in the BC Juvenile!
Read something interesting that makes me like him even more. The colt got real sick after the hopeful. Keith said he never got to drill him like usually He sai his works are evidence that he wasn't 100 percent. So he was happy with the second. Article in HRN
After seeing Brody's Cause closing the Futurity and the way Keen Ice closing the Travers, maybe Dale Romans had found the magic button with his closers. Expect Keen Ice to be in top form heading into the BCC.
How many sons does he have at stud? I can only list 4. POTN, Bodemiester, and Sky Kingdom and Empire Way
One day removed from multiple graded stakes winner Honor Code's third-place finish in Saturday's Grade 2, $400,000 Kelso, Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey reported the colt returned from the race in good order and that he had no regrets opting for the one-mile race instead of the 1 ¼-mile Grade 1...Read More
  • Elhubbo · Being "set up for Kentucky" and set up for the Classic don't really mean the same thing, do they? Kinda makes you wanna go Sam Kinison(Back to School) on him. · 5 hours ago
