  • travel_vic · club turn always has been wide to let the field of q-horses slow down....The place always was a nice little course even when it was q-horse only. Saw the great Kaweah Bar there often · 1 hour ago ·

The HRN ROAD TO THE KENTUCKY DERBY ends here with the Derby Trial (submit picks to https://sites.google.com/site/hrnderby/submit-your-picks?pli=1). This is the last handicapping race. The rest of the points will be garnered through the Get in the Gate program. You will receive 15 points for every Get in the Gate horse that draws a gate on Wednesday. You will get an additional 25 points if one of these horses wins. Best of luck!
Likely last season starts Wednesday

  • Sullivan · A shorter meet at Suffolk would be beneficial, or bringing Rockingham back. The latter needs only votes; it is quite beautiful · 21 minutes ago ·
Which horse was better Conduit or Point of Entry
  • Show All 11 Comments
  • Sullivan · Point of Entry drew away from a Kentucky Derby winner and Dubai World Cup Winner while consistently running fast times going long while putting away Treasure Beach and St. Nicholas Abbey over a surface he didn't like any better than they did · 1 hour ago ·
  • LAZMANNICK · That was a really nice and informative post E.P. Seriously, you should expand on your knowledge of International Racing in your posts because some of us have a lot to learn when it comes to International Racing. I will now look at Conduit as being even better than I thought he was and believe me, I always thought he was pretty good……The point I was trying to make about Point of Entry was that I don’t think we saw his full potential and if he would have raced in Europe or abroad, and with a different race mentality than is over here, he was the type of horse that could have more than held his own. Once again, JMO. As for Dar Re Mi, she was pretty good too. It is interesting to note that she defeated Icon Project at 10F when breaking her maiden, the same Icon Project that came to N/A and won the 10F Personal Ensign (the recently deceased Unbridled Belle was last in that race BTW). I believe that Icon Project was better on dirt than turf, that’s why she came to N/A. To show how difficult it is at times to compare horses we sometimes have to look between the lines so to speak. Conduit defeated Precious Passion with Dar Re Mi third in the BC Turf. Dar Re Mi then travelled to Dubai and won the Sheena defeating Buena Vista with Precious Passion last, then in her next start ran in the Eclipse and finished well back of Twice Over, who the previous year was outrun by Zenyatta in the BCC, on a surface he could handle. Point of Entry defeated Sir Nicholas Abby handily too and SNA was a pretty decent sort. POE also defeated Animal Kingdom in the GP Turf Handicap and from there Animal Kingdom went on to win a World Cup. A kind of musical chairs but the point I’m trying to make here is that N/A’s best horses really can compete against the best from other jurisdictions if given the chance. It’s not a case of downgrading the class and abilities of International horses, but more one of upgrading the class and abilities of many N/A horses. · 22 minutes ago ·
My boy worked today at Aqueduct. Lets just say Scary Good is downplaying it.

A small 6-runner field assembled for this year's renewal of the G3 Gordon Richards Stakes, but there's some talent for sure among the 6 entries. Sir Michael Stoute went on record today with the racing media as saying he thinks it's very possible Telescope will need this first outing, but Telescope bolted up last season in his 2013 seasonal debut winning a conditions stakes at Leicester by 24 lengths off a 10 month layoff. Sky Hunter makes his first start for Godolphin in the UK in the Gordon Richards. He won 4 of 5 starts in France last season for trainer Andre Fabre. His only defeat was a 3rd behind Intello in the G1 Prix Du Jockey Club. This horse clearly has a lot of ability, but my knock on him now will be the same it's always been for talented horses transferring from Andre Fabre to Saeed Bin Suroor for Godolphin, and that's more often than not those horse regress badly for leaving Fabre, not progress. Several good horses over the years that were letit group level performers for Fabre in France failed abysmally under Suroor in the UK, I.E., Cavalryman, Cutlass Bay, and most recently Saint Baudolino & Masterstroke. Noble Mission could be the horse to watch out for in this race coming off a very narrow loss by a neck to Cubanita in the G3 John Porter Stakes at Newbury 2 weeks ago on his 2014 seasonal debut. It stands to reason he should strip much fitter this time around at Sandown for the run at Newbury, IMO.
Where is he?
  • Northport · I would assume that he is training up to the Guineas. He also has an entry in the Dante I suppose if they decide to make the Derby the primary target instead of the Guineas (then the Derby). I can't really see that happening though, considering how well backed he is and how much hype there has been coming from Ballydoyle about him as a Guineas prospect. · 43 minutes ago ·
  • tcglory · hes running in the 2000 for his first start of the year · 41 minutes ago ·
that was to easy and i got a killer price on her. Cant beleive so many backed off her after 1 bad race
As hard as it was to be patient and for him to miss the TC races, still grateful his connections wasn't gripped by Derby fever and have him possibly suffer the fate of Bond Holder.
J. Armando Rodriguez's General a Rod recorded his first official work at Churchill Downs in preparation for Kentucky Derby 140, covering five furlongs in 1:03.40 with splits of :13, :26.20, 39 and out six furlongs in 1:17.60 with exercise rider Joel Barrientos up for trainer Mike Maker.Read More

  • buckpasser · Matt Winn made the Derby what it is because he got HP Whitney to race his good filly Regret · 1 hour ago ·
  • buckpasser · He got Regret to race in it and this ended the boycott by the Eastern racing establishment of the race and helped make the race what it is. Winn was very grateful to Whitney and always considered Regret one of the best filly or mare he saw race. And he saw Beldame, Artful, Yo Tambien etc · 1 hour ago ·
Q of the D : what is a horse that you consider to be underrated or forgotten about?
My guy is back on the work tab! On April 24th, he worked 3F in :38.00 over Fast Dirt at CD finishing 4/5.
Jersey Joe Bravo all the way on DANZA!
where can i find the graded earings for the preps?
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?
Did chitu sch out of the ky derby trail and where do i get the info on the derby points and the graded earings too get in the derby?
Will be making his season debut on Sunday at Aqueduct.
