I love Untapable but I want Wildcat Red to win the Haskell sooooooooooooooooo bad!
As Princess of Sylmar looks to add her name to the growing list of top class mares that have taken Delaware Park's prized jewel, I find myself thinking back to when another small, plucky chestnut filly ran, in what would what would later be named the race of the year, and what was the last race in w...Read More

  • CauseForConcern · So true, travel_vic. I went there in 1994 to basically see another new track. I came away with the realization that this track was where legends once roamed, and many more legends are soon to be discovered. · 1 hour ago
  • airedale2008 · Nice memories of Saratoga, Johnnie. After conversing with Buckpasser about the history and legends that raced there, I had to visit my first track two years ago. It might always be my favorite. I knew I was at the right place when a large group of horses was crossing the street from the main track headed over to Oklahoma. As Red Smith said half a century ago about the graveyard of champions, “to get to Saratoga from NYC, you drive north for 175 miles, turn left at Union Avenue and go back 100 years.” · 1 hour ago

  • SSilence86 via Disqus · I love the new avatar feature. I love the picture share feature. I like the edit feature. Besides these three features however, I haven't seen the "upside" to this chaotic change?? · 3 hours ago
  • Buckpasser via Disqus · HRN. Thank you showing the number of comments to a thread and the ability to see them on the initial thread is very good. I second SS on the edit, photo share ( even though I'm still getting the hang of it) and the custom avatar and voting ability. · 1 hour ago

  • buds · I think the hoty award usually goes to either a horse that wins the bc classic, or a horse that dominates their division, only a handful can achieve that and the odds reflect that. This is why untapable is less than the big 3 in the distaff (although I thought close hatches should b closer to 15-1) wise dan, pm, and chrome all have shown dominatnce, and the odds reflect this. Shared belief and tonalist could do it if they won out and they have 25-1. Remember its not the "best horse" award. · 20 hours ago

:( RIP
Finally got a picture of him up!
This one is a first time starter today. R4 at Belmont. Another Esky baby, gonna tune in and see how he goes. Best of luck to him
  • UnionRagsRules · Anxious in the gate; had to be backed out. Broke VERY slow due to his greeness; made a premature middle move but was running awkwardly the whole way around. Needs dirt, IMO. · 4 hours ago
