What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

This might be none of your buisness, but considering the fact that this is nyquist's homepage, here is a picture of a souvenir that doug o'neill gave to my dad aka nyquists groom.
I honestly do not understand all the hate here. He is one of the greatest trainers to walk the Earth. Sure he's had his problems and made his mistakes, but the rest of us do the same, which is no reason to hate the man. He almost died, and he still gets hated, and that's just sad. I know some will agree with me, but I am sure one user will reply with some sort of negative comment. (Hint) If you want to know who it is, he sometimes goes by something we watch.
California Chrome's loss in the the 2014 Belmont Stakes may actually have been a good thing for racing. Read More

  • Theodore via Disqus · The Triple Crown is not, and has never been, the sole litmus test for greatness. They are the 3 spring classics, nothing more. To win all 3 is difficult to achieve, but what California Chrome has accomplished thus far has already eclipsed any Triple Crown sweep in and of itself. If you are in denial of this objective fact, you are attributing some mystical power to those 3 races in that particular order that does not intrinsically exist. · 1 day ago
  • Carolyn Barg via Disqus · He wouldn't have been retired had he won the Triple Crown. You all know the reason. And, he would have won the TC if Matterhorn hadn't stepped on his foot. · 3 hours ago

Second, and had a very strong gallop-out. I think the Mosses and John have a really nice one here!

Multiple graded stakes-winning jockey Junior Alvarado will have the mount aboard Curlin runner-up Gift Box in the Grade 1 Travers Stakes 2016 on Saturday, trainer Chad Brown confirmed Monday afternoon, rounding out the riding assignments for the "Mid-Summer Derby" contenders.Read More
Exaggerator will be favored, but there will be no shortage of prime competition for the son of Curlin in Saturday's Mid-Summer Derby.Read More
La Cressonniere runs out an easy winner of the G2 Prix de la Nonette at Deauville, running her unbeaten record to 8 for 8 to date.

  • ChessChamp · I'm not too keen on these fillies (La Cressonniere, Minding) doing too well at the Arc. There level of competition just hasn't been that tough, and a horse that went back and forth with Minding, Ballydoyle, has looked awful in the US so far. I know that's not a great barometer, but it doesn't help. To me, the Arc is a 2-horse race at this point, between Postponed and Harzand. · 18 hours ago
  • sczen50 · I really like this filly! She won again!!~ ;) · 4 hours ago
Skip Away was always an underrated horse to me..he ran many many monumental races...faced much much better horses also in his day..carrying weight up to 131 lbs and still winning...Skip Away was a GREAT horse
Easy Goer,Cigar and Skip Away in that order.
Chrome is the Rodney Dangerfield of thoroughbreds right now. Destroys a stacked field with ease and still gets no respect.
Race Clue #1 – A field of 12 entered the starting gate for this race run four weeks before the Breeders’ Cup. Race Clue #2 – The favorite would go off at odds of 3-5, in a year he would ultimately be named Horse of the Year.Read More
What about Gift Box
From today's Racing Post web-site: Trainer Henry Candy has said Limato is "unlikely" to run in the G1 Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock on September 3rd, saying he thinks Limato needs more time between starts. Winner of the G1 Darley July Cup at 6f, Limato most recently finished 2nd, two lengths behind Mecca's Angel in the G1 Nunthorpe Stakes over the weekend in his first career start at 5f. Candy said if conditions are dry at Chantilly over Arc weekend that Limato will contest the G1 Prix de le Foret over 7f again, a race he ran 2nd in last season behind Make Believe. He'll then head to America to run in the G1 Breeders Cup Turf Sprint over 6-1/2f at Santa Anita in November.
Wow, what a weekend of racing and HorseCenter has it all – the decisive wins of California Chrome and Songbird and then a preview of the 2016 Travers.Read More

  • nu-fan via Disqus · That was one long video but I enjoyed hearing both Brian's and Matt's opinions on these races and horses. I know that Brian took a little heat on his support of Frosted but, truth be told, there are two horses that, in my opinion, if they enter the BC Classic with Chrome, can give Chrome a real challenge: it would be Frosted as well as Exaggerator. I believe some are still visualizing Frosted in the DWC but he has done exceptionally well in his last two races and the DWC might be a race to toss out. Perhaps, he did not do well with shipping there. (???) Exaggerator is one horse that seems to not lose steam at the finish line. And, if it rains....? Songbird? I believe that only someone who has been incommunicado on some deserted island for the past two years, would not see this filly as the top 3-yr-old filly and unbeatable by any other filly in her age group. · 8 hours ago
Santa Anita Derby, Preakness, and Haskell winner, Exaggerator, drew post #7 today and has been installed as the 3-1 favorite in a full field of 14 set to run in Saturday's 2016 Travers Stakes at Saratoga.

American pharoah/Frosted/Easy Goer/Songbird/California Chrome/Skip Away/Cigar/Zenyatta...rank these horses 1 through 8..if they all ran in one race together what would be the order of finish?
Congrats curlin on your two sons EXagerator and Connect to represent you in the Travers
