What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Shared Belief stands over the expected Big Cap field like LeBron James balling with a group of kindergartners. Read More

  • Sullivan · How can you completely ignore the only horse to take down Palace Malice in the past year, the winner of a G1 stakes at Saratoga, the one who will be running at speed favoring Santa Anita; Moreno? · 13 hours ago
  • DANCERS1FAN · A horse cannot control who shows up to run against him. When you're that good, owners and trainers now days avoid running against you whenever possible. As far as not leaving California yet, exactly right - he has not needed to, as the biggest race was located there. Later in the year, he will need to for sure. But everyone needs to remember that the planes fly both ways so why is nobody from the east coming out for a million dollar race???? · 42 minutes ago
Initially i conceded this race to Shared Belief,just like everyone else. But after looking at the entries,from a horse i had winning the race at about 93 % positive. I change the odds to about 80 % . The presence of Moreno makes this race a bit more interesting. A loose speed is always dangerous,especially when he is fresh and has some quality to him. Unless the ghost of Bejarano comes alive and he goes after Moreno,with absolutely no regard for his own. Moreno will be loose in here. Makes it a bit tough for the Hall of Famer. He now will have to use Shared Belief a bit more than he would of wanted to. Not saying that he will lose. But the chances sure increased with this entry. Never been a fan of The Rajin Cajun and his Amateuristic attacks in an attempt to Trash Talk. But i think that he has this guy on as much a tilt mode as possible. Nathan now i can get into the race,rather than be a spectator.

  • travel_vic · I took up the study of Eastern philosophical thought some years ago and the Chinese have it right and the west has it wrong. CHANGE is what runs this world and those we know it and prepare for it are those successful in this life. NOTHING stays the same, it is all in flux, as the wonderful oracle of the I CHING tells us all. Each race is an interaction UNIQUE in time as the track, the form cycle of the horses, and the way the crowd supports them is unlike any contest that has gone on before....Change, that is the constant in this life. · 7 hours ago

Nothing can be more motivating than this and no one could tell you anything if you believe enough in it. Also even the big said it when SJ Sports and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXk_3zb2-gQ said it. So start. And Bravo to you! Hope I was of help · 2 hours ago

  • Mike D via Disqus · "He must be 16 1/2 hands high"........ "17.3",......... "All 1,250 pounds of him". (that was kind of a play off the movie Jaws) Anyway, look at that size of that monster! Dang, he won't be getting pushed around in the Derby, that's for sure. Those 19 other 3 year-olds better stay the heck out of his way. · 4 hours ago
This race has 6 front-runners. El Kabeir and Classy Class are surrounded by similar running style. I would be concerned about the first 25 yards. It could be a mess. The two closers, Combat Diver and Tencendur could mop this up. I think Tencendur has a better shot because he has been training huge and he has an enviable outside post outside of the fray that will be the first 1/16th. I agree with Deano. Tencendur only switched leads in one of his three races and still did well. Weaver has a very impressive 17 hand horse.
The horse produces it segmental velocity times against a recorded documented pace of race. All one has to do is figure the lengths behind to get the velocity of the HORSE. HORSE no one else. That is where all the data comes from
  • amino998 · So this HORSE, Shared Belief, is too WHAT for the Met Mile? · 9 hours ago
  • travel_vic · One can NEVER project the isolated HORSE in the absence of the projected (accumulative) pace of race that he/she is contend with. ANYONE evaluating a horse ALONE without considering the pace pressure ahead is headed straight for the poor house. The effect of a single negative pace pressure (ex. Siphon to Cigar in their Pacific Classic) can negate altogether what that special horse could do in a vacuum. · 8 hours ago

  • travel_vic · FINAL time means nothing. As Beyer finally had to admit and I quote:"It is not how fast horses run that counts, but it is HOW they run FAST." If animals cannot project sustained/presser status into the 10 furlong contest, forget about them in the win slot. · 8 hours ago

  • Sullivan · Has no chance. Won the Malibu by a neck over a subpar group excepting the runner up. No way he takes Palace Malice, Moreno, Liam's Map, and/or Tonalist at a mile. · 13 hours ago
  • tmallios · Vic how did you come up with that conclussion. If it is all about the horse,did you have a face to face with him and he let you in on some inside info.Also until we know who the remaining horses in the race are,how can we determine what the pace scenerio/odds will be so that we can make an educated selection.Again Victorio,you are caught in a LIE. You truly are a habitual liar.Like Vodka said earlier,you really can't keep your stories straight. Are you sure that what you say you do at Woodbine is true. Seems to me that your Left Wing pal Brian Williams is not the only storyteller amongst us. · 10 hours ago
