Can Nyquist Win the Kentucky Derby ... What do you think?Read More
  • Show All 4 Comments
  • Mary Moore via Disqus · I say 'Yes". He can win it, but of course that doesn't mean he will. The argument of "only one Juvenile winner has won the derby" and "only one undefeated Juvenile winner has made it to the Derby" kind of doesn't sit well with me. Just because it happened only once, doesn't mean it won't happen again. Also, when you compare the 141 times the Derby has been run to the 32 times the Juvenile has been run, the Juvenile is a pretty "young" race. So, it makes sense to me that only one Juvenile winner has won the Derby. But that's just how I see it. · 3 hours ago
  • AndyScoggin · I vote NO, it is not easy to win the Derby. Frankly, there are horses that I like better. · 2 hours ago
Outwork, Uncle Mo's first winner on track, will return Saturday in an allowance race at Tampa Bay Downs in an allowance race.
American Dubai and Get Jets are also cross entered into the 8th race this Saturday Feb13th. It is an Allowance mile and 1/16th for 3yolds at Oaklawn Park
What a performance!
Nyquist: 22 and change ... 22 and change.... goodbye to the rest of the field.
Top 2 year old sales purchase sired by Kittens Joy
I can't wait to see if Nyquist or Exaggerator wins. I was talking to someone who thinks Exaggerator is better, but I personally like Nyquist. Who do you think will win?
  • Jordan via Disqus · Exaggerator easily · 20 hours ago
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · at 7f its a no brainer Nyquist is the better horse and I don't think he'll have to work hard either. Longer, we'll have to wait to find out how they've improved from 2 to 3. · 9 hours ago
This is the one they have been talking about. Definitely the biggest turf filly prospect out there
The field should go favored, but of the individual interests, look for heavy support for Mohaymen in Pool 2 of the 2016 Kentucky Derby Future Wager.Read More

  • travel_vic · OBJECTIVITY: it is LOST from the conversation at this point, as NONE of these animals have gone 9 panels. BSF's mean NOTHING at 8 or 8.5 as the baby speed advantage of many a precocious 2 year old form is still winning many of these quasi-sprints ahead of the REAL challenge: 10 furlongs under 126 pounds. You cannot extrapolate speed per se until the distance factor is exposed. NOT at all. · 2 hours ago
Dortmund galloping earlier this morning, physically he looks like an absolute beast.

Keen Ice had finished in front of Frosted the last 2 times they were in the same race. He can make it 3 straight in the 2016 DWC because I don't think Frosted will be racing against Keen Ice in the Al Maktoum round 3.
  • cugel the clever · Not based on current form. Keen Ice hasn't proven that he's even close to the same horse he was in the Travers and Haskell, which appears to be where he peaked over 5 months ago. · 2 hours ago

BREAKING NEWS: Gift Box, 3rd place finisher in the Remsen behind Mohaymen, will miss the Risen Star next week after he missed a workout due to a slight cough, no word yet on how serious it is, but Chad Brown says that he could be rerouted to the Gotham in March or the Tampa Bay Derby, but too soon to tell.

Nyquist and Exaggerator better hope Malibu Sunshine doesn't show up. He could bust a 100 beyer on that speed favoring track.
According to the Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots racing office, two horses are likely to represent California in next Saturday’s featured Grade II $400,000 Veterans Ford Risen Star Stakes for 3-year-olds – the second of three Kentucky Derby preps at the New Orleans oval. Read More

Still unbeaten and untested, if ever there was a filly who truly had it all in front of her, it's Fox Hill Farms' Songbird.Read More

  • chasingmytale via Disqus · I'm seeing a lot of comments regarding Songbirds owner Rick Porter. The following are Porters comments taken from a recent DRF article. “It’s not the right race for her,” Porter said. “You’ve got to remember, she won’t be 3 until April 30, which means she’s basically a May foal. There’s no point putting her in a 20-horse field going a mile and a quarter in that atmosphere.” “Absolutely not,” he replied. “Eight Belles does not play into my decision at all. I’ll never get over what happened to her, but I’m not going to let it determine where I’d race a filly. It was a fluke accident. And I was right. She did belong in the Derby.” “That doesn’t mean we might not run Songbird against colts later on,” Porter said. “But every time your horse goes out there, you think, ‘Please let them get back without a problem.’ You owe it to them to make the right decision.” · 1 day ago

  • travel_vic · The entire country comes to a halt for this one. Watched it on the "telly" when I was there (no commercials) and midway through the broadcast I was told to change channels:"Catch the rest of our coverage on BBC 4!" Watch a great movie about it with Dan Aykroyd and Robbie Coltrane called "On the Nose," about a anatomical specimen of a head in a jar that is used to predict the outcome of races...did real well too until he had to go back to Australia. Funny ending too ..an enjoyable show. · 15 hours ago

  • buckpasser · As far as I am concerned, Ontario is a cautionary tale for NY racing in particular. New York State and NY City are about to run deficits to the tune of billions of dollars. They have already raised taxes and cut services. They need some stream of revenue and certainly Cuomo is eyeing gambling expansion. The industry had better be prepared for this. Pennsylvania horsemen headed off huge changes to income distributions and programs. · 1143 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · Beautiful race course, great food, BAD racing and even a worse place to bet, BUT that may all change very soon. Yesterday, Texas race tracks reopened their doors after the Legislature decided to give the Texas Racing Commission some funding. Previously, the commission faced a temporary shutdown when the Legislature withheld the money. But this is no grand bargain. The Legislature has only granted the commission funding for three months, meaning the future of horse racing in Texas still remains largely uncertain. Following the commission's brief shutdown, Sen. Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound) said in a statement, "Last week's actions were disappointing, and we cannot look the other way when an agency exceeds its authority, defies the Constitution and picks fights with the Legislature." http://www.houstonpress.com/news/texas-horse-racing-will-continue-at-least-for-three-more-months-7734628 · 15 hours ago
