What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Friday's 5th race (4:00pm PT) from Los Alamitos Race Course is an $8,000 claiming heat for fillies and mares dashing five and one-half furlongs on the main track.#3 Missy Marini (5-1) won her $20k Maiden Claiming Golden Gate debut at 6f before fading in a pair of Starter Allowance sprints at that sa...Read More

Who is the top jockey in the Nation? Now you can rate the riders on Horse Racing Nation!Read More
  • cathi929 · Mike Smith is my favorite jockey. He is talented in a very big way. Ethics for not only life but TB racing. A real gentleman all around. He doesn't just care for the win, other factors come into play for each ride. I will never forget after Zenyatta had her first colt, Mike Smith went to visit her and the new addition, he didn't have to do this, but he had a connection with her, not only the win of the game. · 12 minutes ago
I'd have to add Danza to your two physically gifted
  • tmallios · I have really never been a fan of this guy. I would not argue against your point. I think he is more of a grinder and powerhorse. But he is a nice horse. · 18 minutes ago
Glad to see this guy back in the work tab prepping for the Haskell. Two telling points from owner Sanchez.Number one is that he has shown mental development and is beginning to relax more. Second and someting that might of been obvious,but you can't blame them if you have a horse as physically gifted as S.I.. He was rushed into the Preakness. I think other than Chrome,S.I. is probably the most physically gifted 3yo of the rest. Hopefully he has gotten over his issues of getting to relax. Running at Monmouth on Haskell day will be a challenge. Not only because of 1 or 2 nice horses facing him. But the way the track is configured,it has a very small paddock area. Good luck to him .Want to see what he can do when he is running on all cylinders.
So I guess now is a good time for an impromptu poll: Gary or Jerry?
  • cedar · Love Jerry, but Gary won me my first ever bet on a wonderful older gelding named Rochester in a G3 at Keeneland, so I'd have to go with him. · 38 minutes ago
Had a nice 4f breeze on the Keeneland turf today going 50 2.5. Lopresti says he "wouldn't rule our the Woodward.. I'm going to let Wise Dan tell me." I honestly don't see him running here and would rather see him take on fourstardave, shadwell turf mile, and BC mile, but I trust Lopresti (although I think he's just teasing the public here).
Integral gets home ahead of Rizeena to to win the G1 Falmouth Stakes. Longshot Peace Burg ran a cracking race in 3rd for Aidan O'Brien. Sky Lantern finishes a well beaten 5th.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Boy this filly is compiling a really nice career resume'. Today made the 8th career start to date for Integral and with her Falmouth win she runs her career record to 8-5-2-0. Her only out of money finish to date still remains her 7th in last season's G1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood, which if memory serves was a bit of a messy race for a few fillies & mares that day. · 45 minutes ago

  • ekindy · Here's another problem I brought up 2 weeks ago that hasn't been addressed. The horse/race/track/horseman pages to not link to related articles anymore. For example Princess of Sylmar does not link to Princess of Sylmar Tops Grade I Delaware Handicap. · 46 minutes ago
Exterminator. Takes about five minutes to refresh
  • Exterminator · Thank you. This certainly is a strange commenting system. At least it is better than the previous new one they tried. · 47 minutes ago
In your opinion who was your favorite rivalry? Mine was Real quiet and victory gallop
who was the best filly/mare in your opinion?
  • Exterminator · Personal Ensign. Throughout her career I was a big fan of hers, but the 1988 BC Distaff (Which was probably the most exciting race in BC history) made me sure that she was a great one. She ran down a Kentucky Derby winner who was loose on the lead at Churchill, showing just how gutsy she was. · 1 hour ago
  • Buckpasser via Disqus · I would also put on that list Busher and Twilight Tear, both HOYs who beat colts and Gallorette who competed against one of the deepest handicap divisions with Assault, Stymie and Armed · 49 minutes ago
Falmouth Stakes draws a terrific field including Rizeena, Integral, Sky Lantern, Certify. Odds on Rizeena 5-1....Certify 11-1 currently....
Why are my responses to comments not showing?
Gal had another bullet work at Churchill. 5f in :59.8
2013 Caufield Guineas & 2014 UAE 2000 Guineas winner, Long John, will make his much anticipated European turf debut on Saturday in the G2 Summer Mile Stakes at Royal-Ascot for trainer Charlie Appleby and Godolphin.

Sorry to hear. But I agree with Eurotrash it is the right thing to do.
Has been retired
  • Euro Trash via Disqus · She was class. Hopefully she will pass that on to her offspring. Sad for us who enjoyed watching her, but they are doing the right thing. · 2 hours ago
Can't think of a horse much more deserving of becoming a graded stakes winner than The Pizza Man. Hope he gets it in the Stars and Stripes!
Should be an interesting debut. Hope he does well
Is there any new about his return ?
