just for the sake of argument. i dont see this happening but say beholder runs in the bcc and beats american pharoah. who wins horse of the year. its crazy to think of a triple crown winner not winning horse of the year. im not sure but has a triple crown winner ever been beaten by a filly? if not. i dont think its out of the realm of possibility that she could steal the horse of the year.

4 Stopchargingmaria 6 Untapable 2 Sheer Drama 5 Got Lucky 6 out front and 2 4 5 come later. The way the "clean silk syndrome" has been doing there. would not be at all surprised if this could be a wire job and with the 2 big stars grabbing most of the parimutuel attention, a possible wager on that 2 may be a good venture, BUT it is a short short field so not much distribution of the $$$$$$$$
Does anybody know her status?

  • travel_vic · When more than 80% of the wagered monies will be ON or hooked to AP, the ONLY way today's card offers a profit of any size is in a pick 4. There just will NOT be enough money in the pool to pay out any sizable dividend that AP is not already connected to. You get PAID (after "take") by the amount NOT connected to the winner, or hooked in an exotic. Unless this animal breaks down or is significantly fouled, he is the winner. Races are fundamentally in two parts: the pace horse(s) and everyone else. NO one can go with this guy and still be around at the end, so any of the projected pace horses, IF they are sent, can almost guarantee to get ground up. So, it is left to the late speed:Keen Ice, Frosted and the like to "pick up the pieces" late here after those exhausted pace horses back up,,,,,,,BUT how far will they back up? That of course is the question. STILL this is a very poor betting race unless you want a souvenir or want to impress the uneducated. · 42 minutes ago
sheer drama America got lucky .....what's happened to untapable, is she a g3 horse now?
Saturday's 9th race (4:25pm ET) from Saratoga is the Grade 1 Forego Stakes for 3-year-olds and up dashing seven furlongs on the main track.#6 Tamarkuz (5-1) shipped in from Dubai and was a more than respectable 4th (stalked fast pace) behind Honor Code, Tonalist, and Private Zone in the G1 Met ...Read More

  • Thomas Mullally via Disqus · Thanks staythirsty-- this is the tighter field I was looking for.... stopchargingmaria is the best bet of the whole day and I am shifting my main bet onto her. She might go down to 4-5 but that is OK.... · 49 minutes ago
considering classyclass because of Gary Stevens & K.Mclaughlin combo. The trainer is really having a good summer meet at Saratoga.............
The fact of the matter is that Upstart could run a big race tomorrow at Saratoga, the same kind of performance that could easily see him in the winners’ circle of the Pennsylvania Derby, but still only finish fourth in the Travers. Or who knows, maybe the champ will not run his best, and it will be ...Read More
Private zone looks like the class in this race. I watched to met mile again & Tamarkuz should improve off that race, he ran big. The big beast then wildcat red..is the direction I'm going.........the undercard is so.................good......what a great race day!!
All eyes will be on American Pharoah as he takes on Texas Red, Frosted, et al in the Travers, but the undercard for the big race is worth getting excited about, as well.Read More

  • davidm9999 · How does Flintshire lose in his spot? Winner of over $5M, massive class drop, weight off, etc. He is supposed to win assuming a clean trip and a non-Jamie Spencer rider. Obviously he has many seconds but running second to Treve is like beating Big Blue Kitten and Slumber by open lengths. So not all runnerup finishes are created equal. Single confidently. · 1 day ago
  • Blueyedhusky via Disqus · Mr. Z is a cinch in the King's Bishop (if he's allowed to come from off the pace). March and Holy Boss underneath. · 13 hours ago

  • kate254 via Disqus · ya gotta be kidding about AP right????? not running against competition..... his triple crown....the derby was quite a full field...quite a few have lost the derby only to excel in the preakness and belmont.....his preakness...quite a sloppy track....and his belmont....the rest of the horses were all fresh....they are pretty good horses in that field....remember Honor Code .....dont ever underestimate these other horses AP Texas Red i would love to see Beholder Liams Map and AP in the Breeders Cup · 1 day ago
  • jinlie01 · As long as American Pharaoh doesn't get hurt in the race...it should be an inevitable outcome. However, this is horse racing, anything can happen when the gates open! Excited to watch the TC Champion run another big race or maybe a crazy upset. Either way I haven't loved a racing season like 2015. What a year thus far! · 1 hour ago
BREAKING NEWS: La Verdad, the expected favorite for the G1 Ballerina today at Saratoga, has been scratched because of inflammation to her hind leg. Trainer Linda Rice says the injury could men she is out of action for the next few months. According to DRF
