Should final running times of Kentucky Derby preps help separate Contenders from Pretenders? Read More

  • Fred Tunks via Disqus · I remember commenting on the final time of the Los Alamitos Futurity. As I pointed out then, times where running fast for horses at every level throughout that meet. I stated that I wasn't convinced the race was all it was made out to be. As I recall my comments were somewhat criticized. · 2 hours ago
  • LennyGeorge · alot of differences in the surfaces · 2 hours ago
The horse produces it segmental velocity times against a recorded documented pace of race. All one has to do is figure the lengths behind to get the velocity of the HORSE. HORSE no one else. That is where all the data comes from
Soon you will all know the name Prospect Park , if you don't know it now , you will !
I am a sucker for Valid. Tough field.

  • Mary Z. · Only 6 entered, but I will say, Valid, Private Zone, Wicked Strong,blinkers version. I mean I just figure Private Zone and Valid to be gone. Big gap for the others to try to close. · 1 hour ago

Unbeaten Dortmund heads a field of 10 Kentucky Derby hopefuls in Saturday’s Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes, an important steppingstone to the $1 million Santa Anita Derby on April 4.Read More
  • Kobe 24 via Disqus · Prospective will be my pick. Improving with every start, this horse could be any kind. · 39 minutes ago
Initially i conceded this race to Shared Belief,just like everyone else. But after looking at the entries,from a horse i had winning the race at about 93 % positive. I change the odds to about 80 % . The presence of Moreno makes this race a bit more interesting. A loose speed is always dangerous,especially when he is fresh and has some quality to him. Unless the ghost of Bejarano comes alive and he goes after Moreno,with absolutely no regard for his own. Moreno will be loose in here. Makes it a bit tough for the Hall of Famer. He now will have to use Shared Belief a bit more than he would of wanted to. Not saying that he will lose. But the chances sure increased with this entry. Never been a fan of The Rajin Cajun and his Amateuristic attacks in an attempt to Trash Talk. But i think that he has this guy on as much a tilt mode as possible. Nathan now i can get into the race,rather than be a spectator.

  • travel_vic · The people who keep winning are those that interpret the contests with an iconoclast eye...You can look that one up too. I don't see anyone else hitting at the rate my contenders do...Mike comes close as he is one of the VERY FEW who understand choosing the correct MARKET for you projections is every bit as important as the contenders...You have no idea how wager creation can alter contender selections backing...nor ever will YOU step up to the plate and show YOUR competence of lack of it. There are PLAYS posted EVERYDAY here and only a few have the cahones to challenge them EVERYDAY. I would have to hold my sides laughing at the NOTHING competition,but then that will never happen with you cowards....Incompetent cowards as well. · 1 hour ago
  • tmallios · You lnucklehead,then how can you predict that Shared Belief cannot win at a Mile .All bexause it is to short. You truly are a pathetic double talker. Just like your pal you referenced earlier. You cannotr keep track of the lies. · 1 hour ago
Wheres his shorter brother at Cock of the South?
Crushed the field at Penn by 7 lengths. Why is he still running at a claiming tag?

Sunland Derby???
Clubhouse Ride has been retired. He will stand at Harris Farm for $2,500
big field i hope they dont all take him out!!!!
This race has 6 front-runners. El Kabeir and Classy Class are surrounded by similar running style. I would be concerned about the first 25 yards. It could be a mess. The two closers, Combat Diver and Tencendur could mop this up. I think Tencendur has a better shot because he has been training huge and he has an enviable outside post outside of the fray that will be the first 1/16th. I agree with Deano. Tencendur only switched leads in one of his three races and still did well. Weaver has a very impressive 17 hand horse.
Tiger Ride is interesting.
Met Mile? sounds a bit short for that one

  • Sullivan · Has no chance. Won the Malibu by a neck over a subpar group excepting the runner up. No way he takes Palace Malice, Moreno, Liam's Map, and/or Tonalist at a mile. · 4 hours ago
  • tmallios · Vic how did you come up with that conclussion. If it is all about the horse,did you have a face to face with him and he let you in on some inside info.Also until we know who the remaining horses in the race are,how can we determine what the pace scenerio/odds will be so that we can make an educated selection.Again Victorio,you are caught in a LIE. You truly are a habitual liar.Like Vodka said earlier,you really can't keep your stories straight. Are you sure that what you say you do at Woodbine is true. Seems to me that your Left Wing pal Brian Williams is not the only storyteller amongst us. · 2 hours ago
When do they draw post positions for the San Felipe?
