What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Showcasing an affinity for the Monmouth Park track, Majestic River showed the Grade 2 Molly Pitcher field her heels en route to a 2 1/2 length victory.Read More
He may come here for the BC I have a feeling the BC will be going to a foreign horse this year
December foal. Get it? 2014 Haskell winner's dam
Welts on humans, as they are on horses, ARE the result of inflammatory byproducts causing vasodilation AT the point of that inflammation. ANY physiology book will tell you about trauma caused secondary inflammation and the blood chemicals released. Living in the world of make believe and NEVER EVEN BEING that close to a horse just finishing its run, OR, for that matter, the to the vets that report such injuries all the time, the REAL world interrupts your fantasy once again.
Have you never been in the winner's circle to observe, FIRST HAND, the red welts on the flanks of the many winners? A stick can ruin a horse as it DID with that poor gutted Rachel Alexandra...almost beat silly several times

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

  • cleclair1994 · The inside of the track was the place to be all day at Monmouth. Untapable was 3 wide all the way around and Bayern took advantage of the bias. Just look how Albano got up for second coming up the rail. Being wide was to her disadvantage. · 4 hours ago
  • Northport · I'm with the others saying she absolutely did put in a run, as Rosie going to the whip multiple times would suggest. No one was beating Bayern today, but if you can honestly say that she didnt run hard you may need a bigger tv · 3 hours ago

  • Ruffianlover · And this is why I dont jump all over the Belmont winner. Not that Tonalist didn't run a decent race, but 9 times out of 10 the Belmont winner gets praised like he's he next three year old champ, and then they don't nearly live up to those expectations. Game race by Wicked Strong who is normally a closer. Never was a fan but he is a nice horse coming into his own. Hopefully he can be more consistent jan he has been in the past · 1 day ago
  • Sullivan · Tonalist was chasing Wicked Strong after going wide throughout and being ridden like the best horse... none anticipated Wicked Strong being up front, and that includes Jimmy Jerkens who upon giving the horse blinkers said that he did not think the horse would be anywhere close to the front in an HRTV interview. This showed what we already knew. Wicked Strong is deadly at 9f and is a Grade 1 level horse. What I would hope we see in the Travers is what happens now when Bayern has a horse look him in the eye, and what Wicked Strong and Tonalist look like knocking heads at 10f · 4 hours ago

  • Matthew L Linda Jr. via Disqus · In the end, girls don't beat boys. That stat will always be measured and those handicapping rules, remain academic. Untapable had nothing to prove in the Haskell and Trainer Asmussen is a JERK to destroy her 2014 record. American greed and poor judgement is my last conclusion. Jersey Skip · 7 hours ago
  • Sullivan · Asmussen held out, he didn't run her in the Preakness, Belmont, Dwyer, he waited to give her more time, until she was ready, and then she got beat today. He did everything right, and it is not his control where she runs. I am sure that you also were against Zenyatta running in the BCC, because it would destroy her 2009 record to only run against girls... wait -- what??? You're a joke. Pssssssssssst...

Starstruck made her return to the Jersey Shore a successful one, winning the Grade 3 WinStar Matchmaker by 1 1/4 lengths for the second consecutive year.Read More
Wildcat Red can't beat Untapable! I will tell you what will happen in this race, Bayern will be leading until the furlong pole, then this superstar filly will take charge and win by 2 lengths OR MORE. :-)
@sullivan I think I would rather have Johnny V on her than Rosie. What do you think? I just hope Rosie doesn't overuse the stick on her like she's notorious for and ruin her. I believe that's what happened to RA with Calvin letting into her
Bayern, in just his seventh start, won the Haskell (G1) by 7¼ lengths, giving trainer Bob Baffert victory number seven in the Jersey Shore Invitational.Read More
I wish good luck to Jess's Dream, Cozmic One and all of Rachel & Zenyatta's little babies. Their mom's were both amazing fillys and I look forward to watching them race.
