  • AndyScoggin · Zipse shows his breadth of knowledge with such a comprehensive Oaks list. Rachel's V. did make Songbird work a little bit in the BCJF and should be #2. · 8 hours ago
  • https://www.facebook.com/john. · This year could end up like 2013 and 2011 when the 3 year old fillies division was arguably more compelling, talented, and deeper than the boys. · 1 hour ago
I will start this comment by stating that I love Songbird. She is spectacular to watch and wins easily without apparently exerting much energy. However, Brian Zipse and Matt Shifman on this site both compared her to the immortal Ruffian. Ruffian is considered by many to be the greatest filly in history. While Songbird is certainly the best of her generation by a long way, a comparison to Ruffian is premature. When Songbird's career is over this comparison may be valid but as of now I believe that there is still a way to go.

  • Tumwater-Bill · Wow! Sounds like an incredible horse. I tried to look up Sun King on Equibase. Is he the gelding from Ireland that ran in over 70 races between 2005 and 2012? I really like these types of horses. In my opinion, they demonstrate the athleticism of the horse racing game. · 36 minutes ago

"The Belmont Stakes is the one true race where the best bred horse wins as long as he can sit close to pace." How true is this statement?
Just goes to show that there are times when a good jockey counts big time . Mor Spirit was to sit just behind his stable mate thru the early going from what I understood . Stevens reacted very fast by noticing too many wanted the lead so he dropped back then back some more . Very unusual for a Baffert colt to run the type of race Mor Spirit did . But Thanks to Stevens Baffert got his 8th Win in the Futurity 👍 . It was also good to know that Baffert had Mor Spirit cranked up alittle bit more than the race in Louisville . Good to see that Baffert is getting those smart Pts early with him . Baffert can now just work on his fitness for the 1 1/8 . One thing I have always enjoyed about Baffert ways in a race has been Where He Likes His Horse to be at the 8th pole . Thats Huge

Boy, the way they drew posts isn't going to help Collected #1 who likes to close and also bad for 12 Luna De Loco 13 Suddenbreakingnews and 14 Discreetness. Makes the race more competitive.
Horse looks breed for turf routes. Could be really good, not don't think dirt should be in his future

  • Mary Z. · I like 11 Icona, otherwise called the 1 here, giggles, but now she's in against these girls who have tried and failed (more) and also have to win. The ruiner could be the 9 who had one good race when she started. 10 is good--why is she not a turfy? Throwing in the fts 2 just because I liked Bold Chieftain so much, and obviously they are wanting her to start longer with those 7f works. 11,9,10,2. · 2 hours ago

  • Robert Tedesco via Disqus · Songbird is the best 3yr. old horse in America,filly or colt,imho. Whatever her connections decide to do with her is what's going to happen, regardess of what people want. They're putting her in the Oaks,period. Would I like to see her on the Derby trail ?Your damn right I would,but that isn't gonna happen.That said,I believe she'll challenge the boys at some point this year,barring any health issues. So,l'm not gonna focus on anything else but a showdown between Songbird &Cathryn Sophia.That's the race I most wanna see happen. · 3 hours ago
GR worked today at Fairgrounds. His official time for 6F was 1:12.2. He galloped out 7F in 1:25.4. GR worked in company with Stageplay. It looks as if my KD pick is doing well.
