What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

  • icyhotboo · Tomino899, what happened you changed back to Clark Kent. If you want to hide your aliases that's fine as I would have never exposed your false nature, however you should change your M. O.( I'm Tmallios and I'm real see, and I'm not that amino899 character who answers for me all the time and jumps in to my arguments to bolster my position, and sometimes just plains answers for me period.) I cant possibly be the only one who spots your conversations with yourself ( whoo hoo) Keep up the sniping and low blows you excel at it. I mean it's 9:AM and it's another day of meaningless BS for you, again, and again. What a bore. BTW, stop harrassing everyone who has something to say, whether it's right or wrong, you've already ruined this site with your nonsense. Vyjack my ass! Rudy was kicking him in the sides to get a 5F workout out of him. That didn't even give you a clue the horse wasn't well though, and you want to give me avice, thanks but no thanks. · 23 minutes ago ·
  • tmallios1 · Nathan i think i struck a nerve with our ICING ON TOP Cupcake. Had his feathers ruffled. Now Ice Ice baby is taking shots at Vyjack. What usually happens when low level intellects on a subject can't converse. They reach into their bag of schticks and come up with the first thing they find. Vyjack was the last post,so he got the thrashing(laughing my butt off) Iced T,why not ask fellow Fab 4 'er for assistance. He has total recall to my blubders. But in reality,i love it that you went after Vyjack and trashed him. You see i categorize you with other losers.The next correct statement just might be your first. So for you to be on the anti side of this Volleball match. Looks like smooth sailing ahead.Thanks for the new Call sign. Has a a ring to it. But i think you are hurting my South of the Border Amigos feelings. You are pying much to much attention to me,why not show him some love and spew some stupidities his way. I am sure he is awaiting them with open arms. · 4 seconds ago ·

I bet him in the Big Cap but didn't last night and of course he runs the race of his life. Good win!

  • tmallios1 · Sorry for wrong thead. I think Italian Ice Boo Boo is upset that we do not invite him to either "our" or "my" personal thread. Why else would he bring it up. I should at least take Vanilla Ices compliment to heart,he gave me top billing in our Alias merger.You being the more detail oriented one of the partnership will one day explain the Chrome Edsel comparison.You see,anytime Iced Tea refers to Horse Racing,the boredom sets in and i must say ADIOS AMIGOS. In regards to learning something about the game when Melted Ice or Vic start opining. Lets just say ,compare it to a college kid dropping back to 7th Grade for knowledge. But they do have a mutual admiration for themselves. Ever hear the old tale Birds of a feather-Flock Together. So in closing Ice Ice Baby>>>I and alter ego Amino give you this one time only.We give approval to spew the Give a Rats ass statement our way. Hope those eggs did not put calluses on your hands from breaking. · 1 hour ago ·

  • TomHarrison · I like CC & Wicked Strong. Both have a hood chance. I agree that post position will have a lot to do with my decision. · 4 hours ago ·
  • tmallios1 · Tom Harrison,post position draw will have a bearing on many horses. I seriously doubt it will affect Chrome at the least.With his tacical speed,he will have the same position on the track when they hit the stands the first time. The only draws that should bother him should be the 1/2 or 3 post. Not from a strategy standpoint,but he will be stuck in the gate longer while the others load. · 57 minutes ago ·
So now who will she be bred to? Galileo? Kittens Joy? Distorted Humor? Tiznow? Medaglia D'oro? Elusive Quality? SMART STRIKE!!!!!

  • icyhotboo · War Front, she was multi surface and I don't know why they didn't try her on turf as SA at that time was more akin to turf than dirt. Declaration Of War was just a magnificant horse on both surfaces. If not him I would go right back to Tapit. · 1 hour ago ·
  • yukichan · The chatter is that she'll be bred back to Tapit, Mosses are pleased with looks of Ziconic. · 1 hour ago ·
Oh sure, I know that CC is the glam horse of the Spring Thoroughbred Couture Season....I get that....yet somehow I'm not convinced that he will put away all of the challengers in the manner of a Big Brown Favorite this KD.....something tells me we are more likely to see an upset a al Charismatic, Animal Kingdom or Monarchos.....watch the replays of all the preps .....there is one out there in Prepland who will eventually best the Cal baby! I just hope that the masses don't bet down Wicked Strong to fave status by race time bc that's the one I think who is going to nab CC.....any thoughts, racing fans???????

  • icyhotboo · Before the KD is run IMO it's a guessing game with only past performance and pedigree as a guide. There may be people out there who correctly select the winner with continuty, I'm just not one of them. The trainers are the real experts and they don't know their horses can get the extra two football fields in distance, what chance have we got. For myself this is a cheapie. If I catch with my $60. to $80. annual play, which includes lucky numbers of course then it's a good day. · 1 hour ago ·
  • tmallios1 · Don't lose Sleep over it Sally. Unless California Chrome bails the scene at the last second and a couple of others follow suit. Favoritism in the Derby is the last thing that will be added to Wicked Strongs Resume. But i do not exactly understand your point. On the thread ,you apparently like Wicked Strong alot. you mention that he is the one who will be blowing by him. That is Ok,it is your opinion. Where i do not understand,earlier you mention that the winner will be an upset. More than likely Wicked will be 2nd or 3rd choice in the wagering. Even if he is 4th choice. How does that translate into an upset?? · 1 hour ago ·
WATCH OUT! They were not trying to win the Santa Anita Derby with Candy Boy.They were only placing the target on California Chrome's back. If you look at the video, you can see the strangle hold Stevens had on the horse. he let Candy Boy press Chrome, and then back off. so the horse lost nothing in that race,and 3rd olace got him in. this horse is dangerous.

Yukichan's half sister breaks her maiden in impressive fashion in Japan--she's a stunner like her sister, registered white racehorse...with unusual markings--thus her name. The dam of both, Shirayukihime, is registered white as well.

is he even going to the derby? last I heard he was on edge 50/50 and if he was going it was for the owners sake not cause bob had confidence he can win

  • Averie Elizabeth · Are you kidding me? I have a better chance in the Derby than him. Baffert has as much a chance of winning the Derby whether he only enters Hoppertunity or Hoppertunity, Chitu, and Midnight Hawk (who as far as I'm concerned is out). · 10 hours ago ·

Next on deck...Vinceremos. In the hole we have...Harry's Holiday. Deep hole we have...Commanding Curve and PabloDel Monte. It will take a miracle to get Bayern or Social Inclusion in the gate.
The wild card race is unsuccessful, and Midnight Hawk may skip the Kentucky Derby.Read More

The Queen now has a Princess! an Easter baby. can't wait to see pictures of her!
i didn't use to like her that much before, but i've really fallen in love with her lately. Gary Stevens said today that Beholder is "probably the most intelligent horse i've ever sat on" i know some people that work at Santa Anita or visit Beholder frequently that says she is an absolute sweetheart & a sucker for attention. what a nice filly.

  • tmallios1 · asatevens is really beginning to crack me up. He is to blame for Point Given,he is to blame for Candy Ride,Beholder is the most intelligent horse. What has he ridden her 3 or 4 times and he can summize this. Enough of the color commentary Gary,you left that profession to ride again. How intelligent must a horse be that in the 4 races you rode her. Physically on the track she was tons the best and fastest racehorse. That would suffice in your next commentary. · 11 hours ago ·
