What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Does this or any other list really matter.All the author is making you aware of is who the top 2 yearolds are as of this printing. The positionings are based on their opinion. Not saying they are right or wrong. But if you took a look at who the top 5 3yos' were at the time of this years Derby. The top 5 were not on anyones list even in January. I guess some enjoy it and it is not a problem.

  • 5timeHOTY via Disqus · I was hoping Mr.Mott and Prince Abdullah would consider the classic with Close Hatches. If she romps in the Beldame, maybe they consider entering her?. · 45 minutes ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · 5timeHOTY, i really have to laugh at to how you and many others disrespect the true meaning of racing . You are calling for Mott to bypass the BC Distaff and go directly in the Classic to run against the boys.What does Hatches have to her resume right now. A bunch of G1 races. You act as though she won it for the past 2 years and has gotten bored with her competition. It sounds as though winning the Distaff is a slap in the face and has no real value. Have Mott call the connections of Untapable and see how they feel ,when they had the same mind set. They to disrespected tradition and the value of The Alabama at Saratoga. They to almost felt it was beneath them to have that honor on their resume. As great a filly as she is,they are now hanging their hat on the Cotillion.A top race in itself,but nowhere near the prestige of winning the Alabama. · 28 minutes ago
I did not like this cross with Malibu Moon..I would have preferred Bernardini..It seem this colt is not performing as well as expected...Lets see if his half sister by Medaglia d'Oro does better...
  • tmallios via Disqus · Are you really serious with that wealth of bloodstck information. You actually said that Aldrin off of basically 1 race is a major underachiever. Forget his 1rst race out, physically on the track he did not look as though he was ready for an effort. He was ridden the same way. There was nothing wrong with his 2nd time out. But to shove him to the side and now await his half-sister. I am sure that your Bloodstock crystal ball might of even told you that ORB was a major underachiever when he lost his first 4 races. MY POINT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>These are babies,they are just beginning to get it. 1/2/3/4 or maybe even more ,are not a long enough period to decide their fate. · 59 minutes ago
  • Sullivan · Bernardini is the slouchiest slouch of them all... Malibu Moon, being a son of AP Indy, whose line has been nothing but great when crossed with Unbridled line mares, makes much sense, especially when it is the cross that brought around Tapit. Also to be considered is a Northern Dancer line stallion, though that would bring on inbreeding. Hard Spun (Danzig) makes a lot of sense here (5.48, A+) with 4 x 5 inbreeding to Northern Dancer. Just for the hell of it I considered a cross back to Mr. Prospector by way of Street Boss who would infuse much needed speed into the cross. Needless to say, the cross (11.62, A++) makes much sense and offers brilliant and classic domination with some support for longer distances (DI is 2.33). Not very sound horses (Hey, we're still talking Unbridled here), but otherwise a good cross with an undervalued stud . · 31 minutes ago
This isn't a horse, it's a mutt that can't lift his hooves to run.
Awesome Again to draw Game On Dude...again.
  • ghelguera · Game On Dude has yet to record a workout since the pacific classic · 49 minutes ago
  • hannahWTC · He may not catch Dude at 1 1/8. If Dude stayed around for a close 4th at 1 1/4 after blazing early fractions. If Dude runs as well as in the Pacific Classic and the pace is more sensible, SB better pray for some help. · 41 minutes ago

  • tmallios via Disqus · Regardless if he wins his next 2 races or even races a 3rd time and wins that race.Even if all are Graded races. If this guy ever won the Horse Of The Year for a 3rd consecutive year,it will mean 2 things. NUMBER ONE- The State of Racing is in horrible shape wheras a folk hero can dominate. NUMBER TWO- Keep your Gold and Blue Chip Stocks. I am investing in Kool Aid. · 1 hour ago

WHERE One runs has nothing to do with HOW one runs. Would not Derek Jeter be the same ball player if he was at Podunk Junction ball park or Yankee Stadium?

  • travel_vic · I followed that SAME tired and uniformed argument for years that the horse is only as good as the venue in which it runs. AFTER I abandoned it and evaluated THE HORSE and not where it was from, the long prices just walked through my door, even to PLACE. This game is HORSE against HORSE not Arlington horses versus Belmont horses or the like. · 1 hour ago
  • travel_vic · oh they all miss the point. WOULD THE INHERENT abilities of the PERSON or in this case the HORSE, be any different if said individual were THERE? No one every mentioned or even suggested that the individual would MEET the domestic team or competition. NOT ONCE, that ASSUMPTION was overlaid on the objectivity of the original statement. · 1 hour ago

  • Show All 5 Comments
  • Mike in SB · This is very disappointing to me, I think she has a shot to win the Cotillion and a victory over Untappable in the race would put her at the top of the 3 year old fillies. The idea that is is better not to lose than it is to win has taken over racing in the last decade and is really hurting the sport. · 2 hours ago

I had to go back and watch this fillys races after all the attention bestowed upon her. The first thing that caught my eye is that she has won 9 races , yet sadly only bankrolled ballpark $247,000. That is similar to running in roughly $60K purses and cleaning up. I saw her last race at the distance. Apparently te filly that ran a strong 2nd was not that highly thought of beased on the announcers call of the finish. The time was fast,but i have no idea how the track was playing. Excluding the owners and racing team involved,as well as the Breeders. Being un-defeated to this stage is so over rated, it is probably unfair to this filly. Just knowing how fast the horses in whatever division she runs in can run. If she hit the board it would be a major accomplishment. I am sure that Wenzel is a capable horseman. If she really were the goods as they say, there is no way (and for lack of better terminology) waste 9 races in the Northwest. If money is the issue,and she were that good. They could of sold her for 7 figures by now.
  • Anne Shaw · I'm really curious about Debbie. Maybe they are just mad about her and want to keep her around and close. I am looking forward to seeing her run somewhere else. Seems to me that money is pretty uninvolved in where she is currently running.Think she's done enough to deserve a chance. · 5 hours ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · Anne i understand what you are saying. But i think it is a myth and a fantasy how the public picks out owners and say it is not about the money and they love their horses. Every owner loves their horses,most or all owners are very competetive and want the very best possible. Look at the owners of CC. They had everyone conned into thinking they were down to earth and loved the horse and money or other material things meant nothing. Trying to achieve greatness with your horse and shipping them around the country to compete against the very best,this does not mean that they do not love them or care for them . It means the owners are human and in a good way,Egomaniacs. · 5 hours ago

  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · Owners, Trainers, Jockey's and other track members are scrambling to come up with a plan to save racing in New England. Obviously they are all one in a million shots, but when you love something you can't just let it go. Some of our plans: 1. Explore developing the land around the track, shops, restaurants, hotels, even housing. Use money to reopen. 2. Find a buyer who will keep races open. 3. Branch into harness racing and then have a tiny meet each summer. 4. Investigate the possibility of the ol' racetrack in Brockton · 9 hours ago
  • Buckpasser via Disqus · To me I think one of the best alternatives is to see if Plainridge which now has only harness racing would sponsor a TB meet, because by early next year their slots parlor will be up and running. Many years past most tracks had both a TB and harness meet. The old track at Brockton is a possibility, but time is of the essence because the breeders will soon if they haven't already packed it in. Plainridge is running, but the meet is short due to the construction going on. · 7 hours ago
