Can Nyquist Win the Kentucky Derby ... What do you think?Read More

  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · I still would like to see Nyquist stay Undefeated up to the first Saturday in May . Mohaymen as well ! But if they both will face off in the Florida Derby Nyquist vs Mohaymen , im not too sure whom will get that Win . Mohaymen wont need to run all out the way Nyquist would need to IF they came for just the Million Dollar Bonus! It would become a good race , but Nyquist I think would go for broke for that Bonus to where Trainer ( KMcLaughlin ) I dont believe will risk losing the Big Focus picture for a bonus thats not for them and to run their colt too hard to take his conditioning too much in jeopardy for the Kentucky Derby . Its hard to say Whom will actually be running in the Florida Derby . The Fountain Of Youth should be a good prep to take serious notice from · 21 hours ago
  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · There seems to be some rumors about some fairly good fast Speed type colts that will be taking a try at Gulfstream Park based on the Speed Favoring and who knows what could happen . · 21 hours ago
does anyone know if this race will be on tv? I'm trying to search for it. also a time would be helpful.
How about some equal time for the girls? Here are Zipse at the Track's Kentucky Oaks Rankings for February 11.Read More
  • ChessChamp · Agree mostly with your list, probably would have Cathryn Sophia #3, but otherwise solid. For those who want to take a stance AGAINST Songbird in the KY OAKS, there is a potential to make quite a bit of money. Songbird will be less than even money, sporting generous odds to every horse in the race. I love everything about POLAR RIVER, I just hope it isn't another Mubtaahij situation. The reason I don't think she is, is her time in the mile today was VERY FAST for Meydan. Mubtaahij ran some slowish times, and struggled to beat Maftool. · 3 hours ago
Cced just won by at least 5 lengths at Fairgrounds going wire to wire. F Geroux was doing all he could to slow her down as she was ready to go. I forgot who added her to HRN for me, but I really appreciate it. This filly is special. Cced went off at 1/5 in just her 2nd lifetime race and coming off a loss by a neck. 1m 70y MSW.
The Risen Star usually shows what 3yold horses are starting to mature. Horses like Gift Box and Gun Runner will either continue to improve or be passed by other horses who are maturing faster. This race is kind of a barometer of what was and what will be talent wise.
The HorseCenter guys talk about Songbird’s magnificent 2016 debut and the most recent Kentucky Derby doings.Read More
  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · I think Songbird and connections are making the correct decision . We have not even began to see just how good these colts are yet at this time . Probably wont get that Eye Catching run till Mid March . Songbird is very talented : Yes in deed ! But I honestly Dont Believe she will be quit Good nor Hang on to Win the Kentucky Derby IF they had chosen before time to make that run . · 23 hours ago
  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · In the beginning of time last year back in September , I at that time had only two 2 yr olds on my radar : (Young Brian ) ( Songbird ) ! Those two were going to be my PROM DATE DANCE for the Kentucky Oaks / Kentucky Derby even though it was way way too early for such a Bold Statement . Then Young Brian got injured and I was lost looking for another Dancing partner for Songbird . After the Breeders Cup , I looked at both Wins from Nyquist and Songbird so differently than so many others have : All I hear is that Songbird ran about 2 seconds quicker in time : Yes That Is True . . . But then again , Nyquist actually ran the Better race from the two once both races got broke down into TRUE STATA according to my Time Table . I thought Nyquist out performed Songbird from a one on one performance . I think at this time , its Songbird compitition thats allowing this Filly to look like a standout thus far . Once the first Saturday in May arrives : I dont think Songbird would have things her own way if was in the Derby . I think the connections are being smart here . Not saying they think Songbird would get beat . Im not saying that about them at all . I believe a handfull of colts are going to be getting really good and the Speed of the Kentucky Derby will be alot faster up front early on than what we might be thinking ! · 23 hours ago

When are they going to realize Zenyatta is not going to be a producer Great champion but not a champion broodmare. Most aren't
  • Mouse via Disqus · You never know!! Ziconic looks pretty darn good to me!! Some horses just take longer to learn. Zenny was like that herself!! He is a 3 year old. You never know what will happen. · 3 hours ago
For what it's worth, she ran the UAE 1000 Guineas a full second faster than Market Rally ran the UAE 2000 Guineas on the same card today.
Frank Conversation hasn’t got much Derby talk around the Doug O’Neill barn with the success of Nyquist, who is undefeated in five starts, but that could all change this weekend. Read More
  • AndyScoggin · I am supporting Touched by Autism in the big race. Good luck, Mr. Taboada. · 1 day ago
  • bronzeprincess33 · Coming from someone who actually has autism (albeit a very mild case), I'd love it if Touched by Autism won. Unfortunately, he has a lot to overcome. Good luck to all of them. · 11 hours ago
This horse for whatever reason will miss the derby.I was expecting him back sooner but does anyone know why he hasn't recorded a work since the Remsen.?
By all accounts, John C. Oxley’s Airoforce has done little wrong in his career. A smashing winner on debut going six furlongs on the grass at Kentucky Downs in a sharp 1:10.34, the son of Colonel John was equally as dominant when winning the Grade III $250,000 Bourbon Stakes next out at Keeneland in...Read More
  • 1JoeP via Disqus · Glad to be the first one to comment. I have Airoforce rated #1 on my KY List. I bet him in Kdfw1 and boxed him with the field and Brody's Cause. Good luck to Mark Casse and Airoforce in the Risen Star. · 5 hours ago
Derby Hopeful Mor Spirit and Super Filly Songbird were two of the main attractions last Saturday at the Great Race Place. Revisit the weekend in photos by HRN's own, Melanie Martines.Read More
  • bronzeprincess33 · Beautiful pictures. You said Eight Belles was the last filly to run in the Derby, but I think it was actually Devil May Care in 2010. · 11 hours ago
  • Ruffianlover · Amazing photos. Just beautiful. Songbird looks the part for sure. Markings like her half sister Rachel, but has that look of fire in her eye like Ruffian. Only time will tell just how good her legacy could be. · 11 hours ago
WOW!! Add another Curlin three year old to watch in 2016. Cced brilliant in victory, eased up to win sharply. AWESOME!!!
Looks like a contender for the triple crown.

Any word on why he was scratched today?
