What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

The Big Beast, winner of G1 King's Bishop, scheduled to have bone chip removed from ankle Tuesday, per Arkansas-based owner Alex Lieblong. From DRF
  • Michelle Hatton via Disqus · Thank you for the info.....I was wondering what happened to this colt. I was very impressed with his last race. · 32 minutes ago
is Arroyo serving days?
Will Goldencents return to the sight of his most prestigious victory, and repeat his success? Or, will familiar rival Fed Biz, or an up and coming three year old dethrone him?Read More
  • Mary Z. · Goldencents' Met Mile, his first start of 2014, not having raced since the Cigar Mile in November, was a very good effort, hanging off of the super-speedy Broadway empire, taking the lead then losing by only 1 length to Palace Malice. I agree, 6f is not Goldencents' best distance, but look at how good he is at 6f anyway. Bumped at the start of the Bing Crosby against Cali speedies? Not easy to make up for that quickly. He finished a close second, 1/2 length back, to Big Macher who had been running well all year, to that point. Beat Del Mar lover Fed Biz in the 7f Pat O'Brien. Super nice! Back to 6f in the SA Sprint Championship. Went wide, finished ahead of Baffert's 6f champ, cameo appearance maker Secret Circle, and was in a photo going 1:07.59, with the Shaheen winner. All fractions fast. Now he'll be back again at a mile. Should be no problem with pace or distance. Instead of saying unlucky, I say he's the new and improved 4 year old Goldencents having possibly his best year ever. About Fed Biz, one of my Cali likes. However, he may appreciate a slightly slower pace over dirt than he will get in the BC Dirt Mile. Was my very preliminary dirt mile pick months ago. Now, I have to go with Goldie. · 19 hours ago
  • z girl · I just cannot root for any horses trained by Doug O'Neill or Steve Asmussen..it would just give validation to their training and it's well know how they "condition" their horses.... · 43 minutes ago
Elm Park runs out a comfortable 2-3/4 length winner of the G1 Racing Post Trophy for Qatar Racing Ltd. over Coolmore's Aloft, giving him 4 wins in 5 starts to date for the 2014 season.

  • don.moose.84 · I dont see why Untapable & Rosie shouldn't romp the Distaff.. but If any spoiler, Tiz Midnight is my choice. · 1 hour ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · Not much in this race . Almost looks to easy for Close Hatches. Ilove the fact that she threw in a clunker before the big race. She is coming off of a non effort. After looking at Untapables speed profile. Since the early spring/winter campaign, her speed figs have regressed. She is not developing as i had hoped. Looks as though this lass may of seen her best. Should there be a big field,post position will play a big role. But if we get a small field like last years rendition. Looks like it is all Hatches. I have to laugh at the "What have you done for me lately" by many of the HRN fans(i am not pointing out specific posters,it is a collective comment). Prior to her last race,i saw many posts that wanted her to run and win the Classic. She was even a strong HOTY candidate in some eyes. Then she has 1 bump in the road,and they drop her like a bad habit. · 1 hour ago
There was a picture of him on twitter, he will be traveling with Main Sequence to California, does anyone know if he's running in the Twilight Derby or something?
Sky Hunter destroys his other 7 rivals and wins the G3 St Simon Stakes at Newbury, giving him back to back wins now.
No Fayette runners will wheel back for the Breeders’ Cup Classic, yet those handicapping America’s richest race might do well to take a long look at what unfolds in the Grade 2 Fayette Stakes. Read More
Although I think he's the best so far I think this is very competitive race with 2yr olds who are extremely talented. I think this is a very good crop and usually a very good crop of 2yr olds become a very good 3yr old crop which is a very good sign that a triple crown winner is on the way but that is never ever a guarantee as this is one of the hardest series of races to win. Although I'm from South Africa and I'm a 15 year old boy I'm not ignorant and I know how damn hard it is to win the triple crown so I'm not putting a marker on anything but I think there is a very good possibility of a triple crown winner. last year the US had a very good crop of 2yr olds that became very good 3yr olds and nearly produced a triple crown winner in California chrome and an undefeated superstar like shared belief along with other top 3yr olds who seem to have a strangle hold on the classic this year!
  • Jbyrnes1 · Agree 100%, this crop of two year olds this year are very good, you have AP, Carpe Diem, Daredevil, and many others, I hope a triple crown comes soon, I'm only 18 year old, so I probably will have plenty of time to see one, but, the sooner the better · 2 hours ago
With blinkers off Tonalist is much better than anything in this field.
Adelaide becomes the first European to take the Cox Plate in blanket finish, just a half length in front of last year's winner Fawkner and the NZ mare Silent Achiever!

Sports betting at Monmouth Park, which was to commence on Sunday, Oct. 26, has been placed on hold following a temporary restraining order issued today by the United States District Court in Trenton.Read More
  • https://www.facebook.com/john. · To my knowledge sports betting is still illegal under federal law. There was a one year window in 1992 when PASPA was passed allowing states that operated casinos the opportunity to allow sports betting and NJ missed the boat. Not sure how this will all play out but I do not see it happening anytime soon · 11 hours ago
Haven't done a comparison in a while... Tiznow or Curlin?
  • Show All 4 Comments
  • https://www.facebook.com/john. · Overall I would say Curlin. Tiznow seemed to have his quirks as a 4 year old and was not as dominant race to race as Curlin. Tiznow is one of my favorite horses though and his 2 BCC victories are two of my favorite races. Can't go wrong with either of them. They are both in my top 5 of the last 10-15 years along with Ghostzapper, Invasor, and Zenyatta( Classic Division) · 11 hours ago
  • Goblin · Curlin, but both were exceptional horses. · 11 hours ago
Not enough speed but ya never know.
This is a colt to lookout for. Extremely talented for an Indiana Bred
You would be surprised who is juicing horses nowadays. I think the lasix, bute and other ones should be outlawed
There are a myriad of reasons why any horse performs less than other efforts and MOST of those PROVABLE reasons are random OR in the realm of those who work with the horse not some observer hundreds of feet away, or worst yet on television. IF an animal has two failures in a row, that suggests a trend to be aware of, but an isolated sub par performance? Who knows?

  • amino998 · …anyway, t_v, that’s exactly why boots on the ground information is important, not all those horrible things that you call it. As for the “MOST of those PROVABLE reasons are random “part, there must be a lot of randomness in your life experience. Breeding is random, poor performances are random… do you consider trouble in races to be random? · 20 hours ago
