What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

One of the most gorgeous horses I've ever seen. His sister, named FEAR NOT raced at Monmouth Park on Mother's day and won, She is just as stunning.
BREAKING NEWS: Ahmed Zayat announces via twitter that the Zayats and Bob Baffert had a four hour meeting yesterday going over every aspect of American Pharoah's future. Apparently yesterday's report by DRF's Jay Privman could be false, Zayat said they are thinking long and hard over AP's future in wether to continue racing him. Multiple media outlets have already reported AP is pointing to the Breeders Cup Classic with a possible prep in between, but Zayat may dismiss those reports. Zayats says that a decision over AP's future could come as early as tomorrow.
Trainer Shug McGaughey tells DRF'S David Grening that Honor Code, the Metropolitan Handicap and Whitney Stakes winner, will “most likely” make his next start in the Grade 2, $400,000 Kelso Handicap, a one-mile race at Belmont Park on Oct. 3, trainer Shug McGaughey said Tuesday. McGaughey says that they could go here instead of the Jockey Club Gold Cup because he feels the Kelso would give him a better chance at getting pace and feels the spacing is right for him going a mile than 1 1/4 before the Breeders Cup Classic.

Do we know what's next ?
Peaked at the right time. He's no Onion but I wouldn't make him a favorite until he wins a few more G1 races. One race does not a champion make or break.
On this week's edition of HorseCenter, Matt and Brian analyze the 2015 Travers beginning to end, unlocking the reasons why Keen Ice was able to upset the Triple Crown champion American Pharoah at Saratoga.Read More

Happy 80th birthday to one if the greatest trainers of all time, D.Wayne Lukas!!
Gas Total and My Monet, the 1-2 finishers in the July 18 Osunitas Stakes that was moved from the grass to the main track by rains, will stay on the dirt in a field of 10 for Wednesday’s $80,000 one-mile Tranquility Lake Stakes for fillies and mares.Read More
  • jinlie01 · Savings Account seems to be in top form since switching to dirt. Also like Wild in the Saddle as longshot along with first time two turner Sam's Sister (out of Brother Derek and Include mare) maybe the added distance will return her to form. · 2 hours ago

  • hannahWTC1 · Can anyone remember the last time 2 3yo's went eyeball to eyeball for 10f and ended up on the board? (In a full field) Only Bodemiester in the KYD has run a race similar to this one and finished close to the winner. He ran crazy fast fractions, but didn't have another horse breathing down his neck. And even though Bodemeister hit 6f in 1:09.80, AP and Frosted still got to the Mile mark .11 faster. · 4 hours ago
Classical mistake on his being chosen for only a tiny aspect of this total makeup. Akin to the old fable the 9 blind men and the elephant. Each only expereinced (via touch) a PART of the elephant as a whole and then just filled in the rest as they IMAGINED. Sprinting 2 furlongs in a work at a sale is NOT enough to know how a horse will come out down the line.
  • James Richardson via Disqus · Yeah, I could never understand what the were trying to achieve, even if he passed Curlin on the all time earnings list he would still have to make another 5.5 million in stud fees just to break even. Let alone how much it would take to make a profit. · 5 hours ago
