What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Pletcher has multiple horses in the race(Surprise-Surprise) The reality is that Global View just might be the best suited for the task. His best race to date was on the Turf. Could be this weekends Danza at the price.
Voodoo Prince, the first foal of Champion Mare Ouija Board, was sold at Tattersalls Horses of Racing Age Sale in October for 80,000 guineas and has been exported to Australia
  • Northport · After two straight wins while in Australia, Voodoo Prince will be stepping up in the G2 Easter Cup at Caulfield tomorrow going 1 1/4. Just a side note that he now races under the name "Our Voodoo Prince", as I guess the name "Voodoo Prince" was taken down under · 14 hours ago ·
  • Northport · Our Voodoo Prince won! He was blocked most of the straight but was able to get a split and win by half a length · 1 minutes ago ·
I'd love to see him in the Belmont over the Preakness.
Kentucky Derby hopeful Commanding Curve, ranked No. 23 on the “Road to the Kentucky Derby presented by Twinspires.com” Leaderboard, continued his preparations for a potential start in the “Run for the Roses” with a five-furlong work Friday morning at Churchill Downs in 1:00.40.Read More

For all you sunday Silence Fans out there. I got this from Blame's Facebook page. A nice assortment of pictures highlighting his babies, and progeny of his offspring.

  • Northport · From what I have read, no one knows entirely. She was sold to Haruya Yoshida for $400,000 at the January sale, and has an export report on file for her, but her death report was filed in the US. So I am guessing she never made it over to Japan · 26 minutes ago ·

Weekend racing action kicks off tonight with the QE Stakes at Randwick! Whose on It's A Dundeel? Silent Achiever? Sacred Falls? Rumor has it that this is Chappie's last race, think he'll go out with a bang...

  • Northport · Loved seeing It's a Dundeel back in the winner's circle! I don't know if he would be good enough to go 1 1/4 at Ascot, but he could try a mile in the Queen Anne perhaps? · 20 minutes ago ·
On April 19th my girl worked 5F in :58.80 at Keeneland
can someone tell the owner to retire this horse and give him a break. This horse has been raced like a 14 year old gelding. Whens the last time you had to click the next or page 2 link on a horse's profile here on HRN?
Excellent short video of the start of Coolmore. Cameo's from Vincent O'Brien, a Young John Magnier, Robert Sangster, Nijinsky and some of NOrthern Dancer's talented progeny. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7EXNTOzVd4
Kentucky Derby prep or not, the $500,000 Illinois Derby remains the state’s preeminent race on the main track for America's glamour division.Read More

  • kentuckyderbypost · Even if MH dazzles and gets the KyDerby nod from Bob, this field looks like one that will be more ready for the Preakness distance rather than the KyDerby. whoever should be an interesting contender in the 2nd jewel. · 56 minutes ago ·

  • tmallios · Amino so wet that he could of starred in the key moment of Russell Crowes NOAH. Getting scary. Cedar you should be seeing him in the next few weeks. He did grow physically,last years last races were not indicative. He had a serious stomach issue that he is over now. All we are hoping for now is to stay sound. Talent never was or will be an issue. This is one serious player. · 53 minutes ago ·
Great to see It's A Dundeel back in cracking form ... It's a Dundeel is back! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzEnWhjzoh8
  • yukichan · I'm a big fan of Chappie, as he is known. The Kiwis go 1-2 with Sacred Falls overtaking Charlton House. There was much talk of Chappie retiring to Arrowfield Stud after the QE Stakes, but now it seems Ascot fever might have taken hold. Brilliant race by James McDonald too. Though we could not see it, evidently Dundeel slipped on way to field, cutting his left hind, but was deemed fit to race. And race he did! · 1 hour ago ·

  • ekindy · You always say that tv, and you are still wrong. A rider won't win a race for his horse, but a rider can certainly lose a race for his horse. So don't say a rider will not make a difference, because riders do make bad decisions that cost them races. · 9 hours ago ·
