Mshawish continues dirt success in Donn Handicap

This time last year, Mshawish was winning the Grade 1 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap. A new year and a new surface saw him adding the Grade 1 Donn Hand...

  • travel_vic · this race, almost all races unless you get to some of the marathons (over 9 furlongs) run based upon the simplest of ideas: PACE, and that's it, NOTHING ELSE. Find the horses that set or prompt the pace, then the ones that have PROVEN ability to close on the fractions these contenders are CAPABLE to set: the TWO races within a race, set up late to see how the pacesetters do against the late onsluaht of the established closers (HINT speed horses always have the favored position in this inner race concept: Salutos Amigos 4 Pulling G's 1 Kobe's Back and the suggested pacesetter here, 5 Rocket Heat · 8 minutes ago
  • travel_vic · Short field, so only an exotic would give you much return on his/her money. · 6 minutes ago
Mark Casse announces that Airoforce is officially a go for the Risen Star in two weeks at the Fair Grounds.
Often the deeper closers come back off time off, SHORT. (NOTE: The Pizza Man yesterday....even though that race was a bit short for him, he made little to no move late)
Still unbeaten and untested, if ever there was a filly who truly had it all in front of her, it's Fox Hill Farms' Songbird.Read More
  • Floridaf · I would love to see a rematch against Rachel's Valentina before Songbird takes on the boys. I think Valentina has some growing to do and could provide a better challenge this year than she did in the Juvenile Fillies. · 16 hours ago
  • AndyScoggin · 87 BSF for Songbird. · 16 hours ago
Well, that was a flop. :( He looked like he kept losing focus and his stride was inconsistent, like he was getting spent fast. Still, I hope Javier stays on board and Keen Ice just goose egged. Mshawish was ridden beautifully. Dubai's getting more and more interesting. I haven't been this excited about it since Well Armed won.
Had her final workout yesterday at Palm Meadows. She went 4F in :49.45 over turf. She will make her debut at Tampa Bay Downs
Mor Spirit flashed the kind of push-button acceleration that only good horses have, on his way to a measured 1 ½-length victory in the Grade 3 Robert B. LewisRead More
Marking will make his four year old debut in Dubai this Thursday at Meydan in the Al Shindagha Sprint. Could be his only race before World Cup night.
This time last year, Mshawish was winning the Grade 1 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap. A new year and a new surface saw him adding the Grade 1 Donn Handicap to his résumé.Read More
  • Byrnzzz · Good for Mshawish, what a nice horse, safe to say, his stallion record just went through the roof. I hope he stays on the dirt for the rest of his career. I'll be rooting for him the rest of the year. Well done. · 17 hours ago

Champion Dayatthespa has given birth to a colt by Curlin. Here he is!!!!
Wouldn't it be great if they took Frosted's route and sent him to Dubai now? Let him get a prep race in over there so he gets acclimated and comfortable. We'd be more likely to see the happy monster coming in first that way. As it is, the Dubai prospects are dismal. What a bummer. He'd add so much class to that race, and I already like the prospects.
Shiffman and Zipse what did you guys think?
Mor Spirit's win in the Robert Lewis flatters Airoforce. Airoforce appears to be healthy again and is posting strong works. Hoping he runs in the Risen Star, his biggest competition would be Mo Tom, who he has previously beat in the Kentucky Jockey Club. Cheering for my KDFW 1 horse, Airoforce!
He don't use a stick on her! What an easily win!
The problem for Keen Ice, and his supporters in the Donn, is that this spot would appear to be ripe for the upset.Read More

  • By The Numbers via Disqus · 1 1/8 at Gulf. . . I completely agree with you on picking against Keen Ice. Not his distance, on a track that won't agree with his style, all while coming off a short layoff. I really like Mshawish and MadeFromLucky in this spot. If KI wins this, I'll be very impressed · 23 hours ago
  • Waya · Thanks, Brian! Feel free to put more of these type of articles up in the future ;-) · 6 hours ago
Wow. Paid workout. Looked great doing it too.
Lukes Alley won his first grade one in the Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap, while The Pizza Man finished a disappointing fifth.Read More
Each fraction in the Gander was appallingly pedestrian. I really have to question how much talent there is here. We now know distance isn't his thing. A mile appears to be pushing it.
Please, keep him out of the DWC! He's not going to win it.... I like this guy but I don't see him beat anything... Maybe race him at a lower level?
Will get annihilated by Smokey Image.
