What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Sad to hear about her. Died after delivering her Bernardini foal. RIP

Is there any interest in doing an auction competition? Everyone gets $5,000,000 and at the end of the horses's 2yo year, we see who made the most money?
Tomorrow's Craven Stakes is always a sign for me that the European flat season is off an running. Interested to see if Toormore is the real deal at 3.
I have only one concern, he has done all of his races & training in cal.

  • Sullivan · It has to rain first, but he did work a few mornings over a damp track at Los Al. My concern is the blinkers. For him to win this, he will have to go 22 / 45 / 109 in order to get away from the speed. When he tires down the lane, and they come up to him, with blinkers on, how will he know? It is a lot harder to navigate blind. and fight an enemy you don't know. · 1 hour ago ·

  • tmallios · Where on this horses Past PPs has he shown to be an Unrateable/Wacky speed freak. While sprinting he has always come off the pace. In his 2 distance races that captured all attention. He went to the front in 1 race and comfortably sat in the next. When the horse runs,he does not pull or tug his jock all over the track. Blinkers will not make him lose control on Derby Day.Come Derby day,it will be an equal opportunity as to how fast or slow they will go. How will they react to the elements of the Mob they will be facing for the first time. How will they react to being stuck in a makeshift mini stall,for 25 minutes before they race. How will they react to the explosion of noise from the Grandstand and the infield ,when they finally step on the track.Problem with many is that they only see the ones affested by this if they run off in a rank and uncontrollable manner. Not the case,pay attention to the ones that forget to show up. It affects them so much,they never get going . They stay in the shell the entire race. Assuming CC will handle the miscelleneous elements. Losing it on the track and speed popping is the least of my worries for him.i · 11 minutes ago ·

  • Davidm9999 · Very intersting and timely pedigree profile on a NOW horse. I hope Danza is not a one hit wonder. We could use some quality in this crop as they sort themselves out. It "appears" Danza may be on the short list of those who might be able to handle the 10F Debry distance. Should know more by the end of day on May 3rd. · 36 minutes ago ·

  • johnsnare · wiked Strong has a lot of distance in his pedigree. Looks like the 2014 derby will have a lot of front end runners, and a few with distance porblems. a horse that is comfortable coming off the pace, should have a distinct advantage. laying off the pace should have · 8 days ago ·

  • thepuresilverband@yahoo.com · Wicked Strong with breed Chrismatic of trainer Wayne Lukas who had won the Derby and 2nd with Chrismatic's stable mate "cat Theif" How many trainers have won 1st & 2nd in the kentucky Derby. (Baffert must be in envy). Later on Breeders Cup 3 Mill Classic, I bet a $5 Bet on Cat Theif & BudRoyal which got me over $3,000! Just a $2 exacta was over $1,000!! I like the breeding and both Chrismatic & Cat Theif had the fastest both almost record speed Beyers! Dont Discount Wicked Strong! · 4 hours ago ·

Take charge is from Take Charge Lady, Wayne Lukas has 4 Kentucky Derby wins! Don't Discount!
have you seen the record wins & 2nds! Wayne Lukas, Beware of his expertese. I saw him years ago tighten the saddle himself on Frans Valentines first win and sindicated the horse after the race who was owned by Green farm stable owned by Earl Sheib (of Famous Auto Paint shop Chain) "Fran" was his wifes name!
Just kind of venting here. I am a big fan of the "old school" sports, obviously horse racing, boxing, and baseball. It really bothers me that the general public or even casual sports fan think and will say that horse racing or boxing are"dead". It bothers me that people don't realize there are different divisions in each sport, horse racing has their divisions based on age, gender, race distance, and surface.Boxing's divisions are based on weight class. I think a large part of the "dead" perception is that there hasn't been a notable American heaveyweight champion in over 20 years just has there hasn't been a TC winner in horse racing in almost 40. People just look to the "glamour divisions" without realizing that the respective divisions in each sport have been producing some of the best talent in recent years then we have ever seen ie Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacman, Bernard Hopkins Roy Jones Jr..and Wise Dan, Rachel,Zenyatta,Groupie Doll,Mizdirection,Royal Delta,Beholder,Game on Dude etc etc
Cyclometer, a 6-year-old Cyclotron horse blessed with natural speed, has been victimized by slow starts in his last three races.

  • https://www.facebook.com/john.karczewski.39 · I think that is a good point that not many people are talking about. There isn't much to knock about this horse and I don't know as this is one of them as I think the talent was out west this year but it is certainly something to consider. Who knows how he will travel or take to being on a plane. Also, this goes for most of the horses, but Churchill seems to be one of those unique tracks in that some horses dislike it and some really flourish. The weeks leading up to the Derby when horses work at Churchill is one of the few times a year I really pay close attention to workouts for that reason. · 6 hours ago ·

  • travel_vic · follow up to that BAD regulation that your fictinal example claims are SO SO BAD> Deficiencies in this original statute, which had become noticeable by the 1920s, led to the replacement of the 1906 statute with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, which, was enacted in 1938 and signed by President Franklin Roosevelt. The 1938 Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, along with its numerous amendments, remains the statutory basis for federal regulation of all foods, drugs, biological products, cosmetics, medical devices, tobacco and radiation emitting devices by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. · 6 hours ago ·
