For those already looking to the future, the Keeneland September Yearling sale catalog will be available on August 11th on the Keeneland website, interesting note, there is multiple horses that will go through the sale who is a son on Frankel. The Sale will begin in mid September and go for 2 1/2 weeks.
Still alive and still getting on some mares. lol
Made it look easy!
If Jerry Bailey doesn't sacrifice his mount and the 04 Belmont is run like this year, Smarty is a TC Champ.
Probably another cake walk for AP. I think most of these horses are worn out from the Derby preps, and possibly 2nd and 3rd place could go to new fresh horses like Nonna"s Boy or Top Clearance. We don't know how good these 2 new horses are yet.
Nathan ,another glorious day on the Right Coast. Like the Sizzler always said. Forget how good the card looks,always a great card when the gates open up at least 9 times a day. Here is a rundown for you today at the Spa. Race #4,Todd just may have the green thumb with Mama Tembu,thinking Chad/Javi duo may be ones who go hand in hand also. Race #5- Bad boy Steve A. just may be the Boss of all here. Race #8.....Jaco/Todd Super Sprinters are the pick on everyones Menu. Do not discard Marys' Fav Clearly Now,never looking better and he might decide today is the day.Imaging has got on his good "BOWLING SHOES". In the Jim Dandy...Frosted will be on everyones mind,on this warm July Day. Take a look at the Brothers Keith/Kent,while you are at it,do not discount Jockey 2s' boy "UPSTART". Finally in the last race........The TAX MAN cometh in a very big way. Good luck,and hopefully as good as yesterday.

Working out a perfect trip from off the pace, Arnold Zetcher's Smart Transition cruised to win the $100,000 Curlin Stakes for 3-year-olds on Friday at Saratoga Race Course.Read More
Could anyone who watched the 2 year old filly stakes last night at Delmar tell me what happended with My Palmilla? Was making a strong move on leaders and stopped, probably some injury. Thank you.
Hate to say it, but Cornelio rode a horrible race on Mills in the 6th yesterday. Some may say he was over his head, but he never gave the horse a chance. Fought him the whole way then tried to circle a wall of horses at the quarter pole. I heard Tony Black on XM radio the other day talking about riders fighting horses early in a race and explained how much that takes out of a horse. I don't think the riders today truly understand how detrimental that is to a horse. In any case, I sure hope he gives Mills a better ride next out.

Big day for Coolmore co-owner Michael Tabor today as the David Wachman trained Legatissimo finishes 1st and the Aidan O'Brien trained Wedding Vow runs 2nd in the G1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood, both bearing the Tabor blue & orange silks.
I'm with you ssilence86...Japan...Texas Red.

tmallios --> amino998 • an hour ago Thanks Nathan,it was 1 for the ages. For me Todd winning 3 i/0 4 via the 3 blind mice,was more of a blessing. Today,1 might have to be a fan of the Big Bang Theory. If get more , will chime in. . . If he wins, the "scavenger" will chime in :D
Frosted deserves to be a winner this time. A good, up-close fourth in the Kentucky Derby by only 3.5 lengths behind winner American Pharaoh, and only 3 or 4 lengths to finish second to American Pharaoh in the Belmont, Frosted is due for a good, quality win.
War Story was knocking on the door in Louisiana, but International Star slammed it in his face. Same would go with American Pharoah in the Ky Derby. Though they've ridded themselves of Amoss, and not normally a go with a new trainer, on this occasion, he'll get top spot. Closely followed by Bent On Bourbon. Always loving a long shot angle, how about Thirtysilverpieces to fill out the top three.
