What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Talk about ARROGANCE. Shared Beliefs #1 Cheerleader(TVG NETWORK) is so sure and cocky that he can't lose this Saturday. They are offering a money back guarantee on a win wager up to the first $25 wagered. Yup,if you bet $25 to win on him and he loses,you get your money refunded to you. This is an attempt for them to increase their handle. How sure must they think about his chances,to offer this up. It is no secret that i would love to seeS.B lose on Sat. . Not because i do not like the horse,but because a minimum investment will bring back a major return in the exotics. Having TVG get stuck holding the bag,would only make it that much sweeter.
I think she's been scratched :(
1st Sir Samson, 2nd Ocho Ocho Ocho, 3rd Dortmun, and 4th Prospect Park. Sir Samson is the x factor, Ocho has been off for 4 months, and Dortman will receive a full field challange. Dortman may remain unbeaten but it will be an interesting race. Good luck to all.
  • https://www.facebook.com/fiddl · Bold prediction Deano, can't fault you for thinking out of the box... I haven't looked at the actual PP's yet, but just off of what I know about most of these horses so far I would have to go with: 3 w 6,7 w 1,2,3,6,7 w TBD and 6,7 w 3 w 1,2,3,6,7 w TBD. · 40 minutes ago
Honor Code is ready to roll !!!
Good trainer super breeder and owner. Has a shot at some of the purse.
  • jonquil · Interesting breeding. I was pleasantly surprised to see Schönbrunn in his pedigree. That means he has Schwarzgold. And being inbred to Foggy Note means he gets a good hit of La Troienne, too. I really liked looking through his pedigree. · 2 hours ago

  • Deano · Don't think you're wrong but there are other horses that can upset your picks. In the Gotham, Tencedur could upset. In the Tampa Bay Derby Carpe Diem or Danzig Moon have viable shots, and in the San Felipe, Sir Sampson could blow out the tote board. That's what makes horse racing fun, when races are contentious · 5 hours ago
  • Deano · So the straight ticket would be Tencendur, Carpe Diem , and Sir Samson. It would be nice to cash that one. · 4 hours ago
I think Davewalsh meant that if the race goes as planned, all the speed will indeed be gunning for the lead, and Tencendur can take back and save ground to the stretch and then close around tiring horses. But races don't always go as planned....especially this time of year.

I wish he wasn't owned by Jim Rome... Then I could actually root for him. I like the horse, but Jim Rome is a jerk.

Three Japanese horses have accepted their invitations to the UAE Derby, but Golden Barows is the one I find most intriguing. He's by Tapit and broke his maiden by 22 lengths in a new track record over a mile at Tokyo, then went on to post another impressive win in an allowance race over a mile. His most recent win came in the listed Hyacinth Stakes when he roared from behind to win. He has done well on a sandier track, and while a speed bias at Meydan may be a concern, if he hits the board he could be a nice one come the first Saturday in May. I'm getting ahead of myself but a Japanese contender for the Derby doesn't happen often!

POST TIME 7:30PM EST – The last two races at Santa Anita today are very attractive from a wagering perspective.  I landed on the nightcap which features a 12-horse field of filly and mare claimers going 5.5 furlongs.  At this distance, I become a little less concerned about pace and more ...Read More
I've followed this horse from his early days, and for the record have always been a big Main Sequence fan. He was always something of a "nearly horse" racing in the UK, but one that's become a legit G1 turf star in the U.S. The million dollar question now, is his transformation due his having been gelded or because he now races with the help of Lasix? I suspect we'll find out the answer to that question at Meydan on world cup night when he takes on some of the world's best middle distance turf horses in the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic.
  • jonquil · It's nice to see him getting some sort of adulation somewhere. He really tried his heart out, but was never quite good enough until he moved to the U.S. Now he's finally gotten some glory for himself. :) · 7 hours ago
Thursday's 3rd race (1:57pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is a $56k Maiden Special Weight event for CA-bred or sired fillies and mares traveling one mile on the turf course (rail at 30 feet). #3 High Intensity (3-1) exits an improved 3rd in a local $75k maiden claimer at this trip on dirt.

Trainer Bret Calhoun said Thursday morning that the undefeated Promise Me Silver is "unlikely" to run in the Grade 3, $150,000 Honeybee at Oaklawn Park on Saturday. If she were to scratch, it would be due to the winter weather that has gripped Arkansas. Article on DRF
  • Eventer1999 · She's stabled in Louisiana, with all the bad weather down here she might not be able to get to Oaklawn for the race if the roads are bad. · 8 hours ago
Two things, and yes, I did get a giggle out of both. I don't know if the recent Shared Belief thread comment by a VERY regular poster will stay up, but 1. The person who commented should realize that a major advertiser here is mentioned in his comment, ad 2., Darnit, if only I had the means to offer the niche market counseling for this THING about Shared Belief. I have not seen a head pop off like this since Austin Powers danced in front of the fembots. Now, now, don't take it so seriously.
