  • DavidM9999 · Nice winner Laura at Belmont $10.40! Cool Comfort ran well behind for second. This Kiddie List will be even more helpful when the loaded MSW’s start soon at SAR and Del Mar. · 26 minutes ago
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.
  • jonquil · I missed yesterday's racing due to a migraine - hope it goes away soon. Missed some big races, and I'm interested to see how Long John does in this race! What timing. :( · 1 hour ago
This past few months his problem was very telling as he just wasn't himself. Time catches up to everyone. While he's young as far a life span, being a jockey has to be a most strenuous occupation and one needs all their abilities. Look at Rosario when he recently came back not fully healed and the difference now. At Belmont in the 9th race I believe, if not for his strength and being 100% his horse would have gone down coming out of the gate as she crossed her right leg over her left one step out. He straightened her up, calmed her down, and made a good run to get third. Look at what beat me: 17/1 and an 11/1. I had the #9 boxed with the #8 as I liked her and am partial to Prado, as well as a win bet. Even then Prado won by a head bob at the wire. 8 Miss Frost E. Prado $36.00 $15.40 $7.20 2 Bartiromo C. Velasquez $10.00 $5.90

  • tmallios · Glory you just made a statement to disregard logic. Please give me 2 major advantages to the new system. Please keep in mind that people want to scroll down and pick out the topics they want to opine on. Look at my problem.With the new system,how on earth can i find the thread wheras Icy is being immature and ranting like a little boy. The new system took that joy away from me. What do you think,i want to read about the Stooges(new and old) discuss Futbal.Collectively they post verbatim the same comments i am reading on Futball sports pages. They are not even smart enough to change the wording. I must say,it does sound impressive if one did not know its' origin. Then to hear them discuss a topic they know even less than Futball>>>That would be Horse Racing. · 8 hours ago

This youngster has a very nice pedigree! Switches to dirt for his Stakes debut at Belmont on Sunday.
Upgrades are fine as long it as helps. "If it ain't broke don't fix it," but you did anyway. 1/9 you lose 50% of your members within three weeks, and when the realization of your blunder hits it will be to late as no one who left will be back. To see years of comments either wiped out or hidden beyond recall is a bit much. It was nice chatting, arguing, fighting, handicapping, and more. That is now a thing of the past for myself because I'm not going to waste time trying to figure this cluster Fxxx out. Goodbye to all of you, and it was nice to meet you all even as typing buddies. I'll be at Homeless Handicappers on Facebook. Simple, informative and the learning curve is Zero%. To the powers that be at HRN, I hereby renounce my membership and would like all of my comments deleted if that is possible. Thank you and goodbye.

  • tmallios · Based on the above current odds, i'd have to think that Hoppertunity , winning Prize and Sahara Sky just might be the winners of the Award. · 8 hours ago
  • buds · I think the hoty award usually goes to either a horse that wins the bc classic, or a horse that dominates their division, only a handful can achieve that and the odds reflect that. This is why untapable is less than the big 3 in the distaff (although I thought close hatches should b closer to 15-1) wise dan, pm, and chrome all have shown dominatnce, and the odds reflect this. Shared belief and tonalist could do it if they won out and they have 25-1. Remember its not the "best horse" award. · 3 hours ago
This is an interesting development. I wonder if the Arc will still be a target for them?

  • jonquil · I don't find this surprising. They'd been saying they'd do this for some time, and this is likely the path of least resistance for them. I've also thought for some time now that they won't race Australia outside of the UK/Ireland - as I see it he's their major derby horse, and he won his derbies. Now the goal is to get him through the year with hopefully few to no more defeats, no injuries, and chances are they'll retire him after this year. There's several reasons I think this, but Australia would be an impressive addition to the sire list and since his father, Galileo, is no longer a shuttle stallion, Australia could take his place as a shuttle stallion and would probably do well (Cape Blanco is at Coolmore America, while Rip Van Winkle joined his sire on the Coolmore Ireland roster - Imperial Monarch, Mahler, and Sans Frontieres are relegated to the Coolmore National Hunt division, there currently is no Galileo-line sire standing at Coolmore Australia). He has the potential to make them more money that way now, so as I see it that could be what they'll do to try to offset all the growing competition from New Approach, Dawn Approach, Frankel, and other Galileo line sires as soon as possible with an eye to the future for Coolmore Stud. .... And no one will even whisper a word about Australia's older full sister, heh. · 6 hours ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · I'm still bummed they decided to bypass the King George with Australia myself. I think he looks like 12f is his best trip. I think he's more likely to get turned over in the Juddmonte International at York over 10-1/2f or the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown over 10f than he would be in the King George. @zatt, as for the Australia vs. Sea The Moon showdown, Sea The Moon is clearly an up and comer but hasn't raced outside of Germany yet. The field he beat in the German Derby was by far the toughest he's faced yet and frankly speaking, I didn't see anything in that field to include Sea The Moon capable of beating Australia or Epsom Oaks winner Taghrooda for that matter, IMO. · 6 hours ago
If Shared Belief beats Cal Chrome in the Breeders Cup Classic would he be a clinch for best 3yr old? HOY?
  • slewcrew7778 · Don't think anyone is expecting Chrome's A game in the Classic against the best horses in the nation, not off of one race in almost five months. I would think his resume is a done deal for this year. But if Shared Belief was to dominate in two powerhouse performances against the best older horses in the Pacific and BC Classic remaining undefeated, who knows! Still, his popularity and accomplishments may already have sewn up 3yo honors for Chrome. Really looking forward to their 4yo season. No doubt all questions will be answered then! · 6 hours ago

He's getting a new knee (knee replacement surgery) and it will require 6 months off. If that doesn't work--he'll go back to TV.

  • https://www.facebook.com/john.karczewski.39 · A few weeks ago I was kind of scratching my head at who may enter and I was worried about the field size but with or without Untapable this is turning out to be a solid and entertaining bunch. I know I am excited. Monmouth is a speed favoring track and I would give the edge to horses on or just off the lead but the Haskell has played pretty fair considering the track. Many off the pace runners have won, even in recent years ie. Coil, Lookin At Lucky, Bluegrass Cat, Roman Ruler, Menifee, Point Given, Dixie Union. I would agree dead closers do not fair well, Rock Hard Ten, Dullahan, Golden Soul, Ice Box,Afleet Again all finished off the board, almost last. Paynter, War Emblem, Peace Rules, Lion Hart are the recent winners to lead at every call. When it comes down to it, regardless of running style the best horse usually wins this race. I think the winner over the last 10 years or so has been atleast the favorite or co-favorite in the wagering. · 1 day ago ·
  • Cal MacDonald via Disqus · She's Unstoppable, She's Uncatchable...She is...Untapable!! If she's running she's my pick. Love Untapable. Ought to be a tough field, looking forward to seeing the outcome. · 9 hours ago
