What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Amino there is a great hunch bet at Saratoga on Saturday in the 3rd race. Where so many firsters are running without the Lasix. Maker/Castellano combo have a horse named Firespike.

Saw him get 6th at Monmouth,glad he won this time!:)
Won the first race I ever saw at the track!I'll always remember her!
This one's got potential!
A very talented field of nine has come together for the 2014 Whitney (G1). Up for grabs is a purse of $1,500,000 and a "Win and You're In" spot in the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Classic.Read More
Comparative statistics for the Ship And Win Program: Through two weeks of the 2013 season, 50 Ship and Win horses raced with nine winning; through two weeks of the 2014 season, 78 have raced with seven wins … Average field size for the first two weeks of 2013 was 8.6, for 2014 the figure is 9.4.
Kool Kat won Sunday’s ninth race and never came close to saving ground. His second consecutive win, this daughter of Scat Daddy traveled 54 feet more than second place Personal Diary. The margin of victory was only a head, but Kool Kat’s extra ground covered equated to about six lengths more than Personal Diary’s trip.
Brown Panther won this race last season and he loves the surface at Goodwood. If anywhere close to his best he should be there about again. As should Ascot Gold Cup 2nd Estimate, who has one previous run at Goodwood in 2012 when finishing 3rd in the G3 Lillie Langtry Stakes. But to me, Cavalryman's win in the G2 Princess of Wales's Stakes 3 weeks ago at Newmarket(July) looks the best recent form on offer here. He's 3-2-1-0 so far in 2014, and though his win at Newmarket(July) was over 12f, we know from his rock solid Dubai form that 2 miles isn't a problem at all for Cavalryman. My Goodwood Cup super-fecta: 1st-Cavalryman 2nd-Brown Panther 3rd-Estimate 4th-Angel Gabrial.
Won an allowance today at Saratoga at 6f
Strong renewal of the Thoroughbred Stakes to be a G3 race. Some talented colts & fillies both entered in this year's field. Key among them are Shifting Power who finished 2nd behind Kingman in the G1 Irish 2000 Guineas and 2nd behind Charm Spirit in the G1 Prix Jean-Prat, and Lightning Thunder who finished 2nd behind Miss France in the G1 English 1000 Guineas and 2nd behind Marvellous in the G1 Irish 1000 Guineas. Also are entered are Bow Creek who won the International Trial Stakes at Lingfield and finished 2nd behind Kingfisher in the Dee Stakes at Chester and 2nd behind Hong Kong bound Born in Bombay in the Britannia Stakes at Ascot, What About Carlo who won the Investec Out of Ordinary Stakes at Epsom and the Esher Cup at Sandown, and Windfast who was 3rd of 10 in the listed King Charles II Stakes and 4th of 23 in the G3 Jersey Stakes.

  • Mary Z. · How are "quick results" now accessed at equibase? I need that feature for when I am trying to find out who "Oh, no" or "He almost had it" is. With the new equibase, only summary(no worries, hrn-ers, those results will still show up in Fall, Winter and Spring, not just Summer, as in Summery) and full results work. · 16 hours ago
  • AnneShaw · There is an ap for iphones and androids called Horse Races now that seems to give results almost immediately. I was surprised it was so fast. Their site is www.horseracesnow.com its powered by equibase but it seems the results are quicker · 3 hours ago
Don t want debate this issue I am referring to one horse one situation hit any horse on the knee cap with a sledge hammer and same results. Check his record not in over his head. As far as Arabian breeding was cross breeding Arabian with Appys in Oregon same argument with quarters turned out to be a great working horse with more endurance then Quarters and no problems breaking down ? Since you feel as strong as you do why don t you do something about it. Perhaps post an editorial in a publication.

Pointing toward Travers/King Bishop!
Just didn't fire- and no excuses for her. She still ran down the stretch with her ears pricked- didn't seem to be full out at all. Really stinks because she could have really finished well if she actually ran hard. But I also don't think any horse was beating Bayern today once he had the lead. I hardly think she disgraced herself though- it's not like she finished dead last like Ria Antonia. She still finished well for not putting in any run whatsoever

  • Ruffianlover · Unlike some people on this site I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong- so I'll do just that. The announcers after the race def made it sound like Rosie was too frustrated to talk with interviewers and just walked straight to the locker room. Maybe I misheard it. And to me- I have never seen a horse be full out with it's ears still pricked so if Rosie thinks she really ran her hardest then I'm shocked she did it while looking like she wasn't breaking a sweat because she didn't seem to be running her hardest to me. All in my opinion. I still love this filly, I still support the connections even though she didn't win. I still think she didn't disgrace herself and finished better than Ria Antonia in the Preakness, I still think this filly is head above the other fillies in her division, and I will end on this quote "it is easy to support those who succeed, but that is not what I am about" · 4 hours ago
  • UnionRagsRules · I agree with you, Ruffian. Just because Rosie went to the whip doesn't mean Untapable fired. She really didn't even try. Still was just a length or so from being 2nd without trying. But, I disagree with you never seeing a horse run full out with their ears up. Zenyatta ring a bell? · 4 hours ago

  • Mary Z. · In reference to Skipaway's comment, in this year, 2014, Big Macher has only run in stakes and graded stakes, as I said the other day, only losing once, to Sahara Sky going 7 furlongs. Was Havre De Grace beaten by a claimer in the Del 'Cap? I wouldn't say so, at that point in Blind Luck's career. Check it out. Maybe the fans would have to be calracing addicts to have known who Big Macher is, but while I love Goldie, Big Macher was no surprise at all. · 7 hours ago
