  • elhubbo · At their best I think Girvin wins this but he did not look good in the Travers at all. · 1 day ago
  • Stuart H. via Disqus · Just out of curiosity, why do you give Battle of Midway a break for the Haskell, and not Timeline, who actually broke even worse and had more of an excuse? After all, it was Timeline that BOM was battling it out with on the backstretch. If it is an excuse for BOM, it is an excuse for Timeline...on your post for the PA Derby you said the Haskell showed Timeline's weakness at 9 furlongs. Yet BOM ran the same race, the same way, and he has an excuse? And the 9f comment does not make sense, since the horse has already won at 9 furlongs in a stakes race (Peter Pan Stakes) going away. Be consistent and fair and people will not have to point stuff out like this. · 18 hours ago
Dortmund, the 2015 Santa Anita Derby winner last seen April 1 in the Santana Mile, has been nominated to the Grade I, $300,000 “Win and You’re In’ Awesome Again Stakes and “we’re leaning towards running,” trainer Art Sherman said by phone Thursday morning from his Los Alamitos headquarters.

  • RealDynastyPicks · I will be shocked if Dortmund doesn't run last here. I am a huge fan, but he has had enough IMO. · 11 hours ago
  • Aubrey via Disqus · Would love to see him win here. Either way the connections have nothing to lose, if he wins or runs well maybe they can get that stud deal wrapped up.. if he loses well he's lost his last two races so really won't do much damage. Either way I wish him and his connections the best. It remains to be seen if the old Dortmund comes back after the time off or if he really is done. · 3 hours ago
Friday's 3rd race (5:58pm ET) from Los Alamitos Race Course is a Starter Allowance event for 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the main track. #5 Preacher Roe (3-1) goes turf/dirt 3rd off the shelf and he likes the Los Al oval (4-2-1-0).

  • andthey'reoff · 1st. Irap 2. West Coast 3. Timeline 4th. Irish War Cry · 1 day ago
  • Stuart H. via Disqus · After going back and forth with Brian at his other blog post on the OK Derby, I do agree with his analysis that Irap is the logical choice here if you are going to take a stand against WC. WC is the obvious favorite, but he has won 1 grade one race and a grade 3 and three graded stakes races. In this year, that is very consistent. Unfortunately, his fractions in the Travers were walking the dog slow and like a decent speed horse he put them to sleep and drew away. As I said earlier, I think Timeline's Haskell was a toss (like Battle of Midway's was). While Timeline has not beaten much, he has beaten everyone he has faced prior to the Haskell, and in his defense he did soundly beat Giuseppe the Great and Talk Logistics already this year (both in this race). I think he could be like his sire and just needs to run. Things like being boxed in and behind horses likely stress him out and sap his energy. So the rail could be a blessing in that it forces them to go hard out to the clear. He is faster than any horse in this race, so he can make the lead if he breaks well. Castellano has said he may be the fastest horse he has ridden in the past few years, so that tells you what you need to know about his speed (and he should know speed having ridden the fastest horse of the past 20 years--Ghostzapper). So we shall see...one thing is for sure. He will not have a wet track (which he likes)...and IWC will likely be running in form this race. Should be interesting, and the 2 should be trying to go with him. · 5 hours ago
