What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Believe me i really love this horse, i really do, but i kinda want him to lose the BCC, i'd rather see like Tonalist or Bayern or someone different i don't why but that's how i feel. i wish SB the best of luck but i would like to see him get beat. it'd make HOY honors all the more interesting

Tuesday's 2nd race (12:52pm ET) from Parx is a Starter Allowance event for 3-year-olds and up dashing five and one-half furlongs on the main track. #6 Estrickator (6-1) earned the best last race number (2nd by a neck) in a 5f affair at Penn National Aug 16. He is a tough customer in these abbreviate...Read More

  • amino998 · Worrying about the place payoff being enough to cover a lost win bet in any single win/place wager when one’s horse {or NUMBER} runs 2nd misses the long run implications of the $$$ not realized in the races you shifted 75% of your money away from the WIN payoff… unless your best style is picking bridesmaids that pay $2.80 to place :) · 1 hour ago

Trainer Jimmy Jerkens reported that both his Jockey Club Gold Cup conteders returned from the 1 ¼-mile race in good order. Grade 1 Travers winner V. E. Day finished sixth after breaking from post position 10, while Wicked Strong, the second choice in the betting behind winner Tonalist, was unplaced ...Read More

  • geldedridgling · I don't know if Beholder really wants to go 9 furlongs, which may seem like a strange statement given her win in the Distaff last year, but there was a tremendous speed bias that day at Santa Anita. Of the 6 dirt races ran that day, 5 of those 6 winners were no more than 2 lengths off the pace setter at any point in the race. The 6th dirt race was the 14 furlong BC marathon, which fell apart completely, evidenced by the 27.80 second final quarter! There was even a pick 5 carryover, which virtually never happens at Santa Anita. Anyway, Closed Hatches, Beholder, and Belle Gallantey all want to be on or very close to the lead, so it will be interesting to see who's still running in the final furlong, especially if the speed bias is not as strong on 11/3. · 2 hours ago
  • AndyScoggin · Not sure that Belle Gallantey is going to the BC, the Beldame was not a WAYI race this year. Rudy R. doesn't seem keen on the trip, as Vyjack is skipping the Dirt Mile. · 59 minutes ago
Rather surprisingly, owner Daniel John Deer has confirmed Al Kazeem as an intended runner in Sunday's G1 Prix De l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp. Al Kazeem was also entered in the G3 Cumberland Lodge Stakes at Ascot on Saturday, a day prior to the Arc, which I thought would probably be his likely target, but it now looks official that he'll run in the Arc again instead. Just not sure he's made it all the way back to being the same horse yet in 2014 that he was in 2013, and this year's Arc field if anything is probably even deeper than the one he faced last season, IMO.
RUN HIM IN CLASSIC IF HE IS ALL RIGHT HE WILL WIN. BIG FAN
The Awesome Again win by Shared Belief was a HOY performance in my opinion. That horse is tough and has a lot of guts. What a great horse.
Rain danced briefly and intermittently on Clockers’ Corner Sunday morning, but not enough to put a damper on the buzz of the hour, the controversial running of Saturday’s Awesome Again Stakes and the heated, in-your-face aftermath involving jockeys and owners. Read More

Does anyone know if this horse was named for Eugene ("Uncle Jeep") Cimino, a World War II vet known for his strong legs? It was said that Cimino could lie on his back and lift the rear end of a Jeep with his legs -- hence the name.
Victor Espinoza was punished by Santa Anita stewards for his ride in the Awesome Again. Did he deserve the seven day suspension?Read More

Tiggy Wiggy makes it 3 straight wins against stakes company with a win in the G1 Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket. In her last start prior to this she defeated Cursory Glance & Anthem Alexander in the G2 Lowther Stakes at York. Cursory Glance came out of the Lowther to go to Ireland and win the G1 Moyglare Stud Stakes and Anthem Alexander, who had beaten Tiggy Wiggy in the G2 Queen Mary Stakes at Ascot back in June, came out of the Lowther to run a narrowly beaten 2nd in today's G1 Cheveley Park Stakes. Strong form lines all tying in together.
  • Northport · I remember seeing her name in passing a few months ago and thinking it was such a great name for a little filly. I have been following her since then, and it terrific to see her get a top class win. They mentioned the Prix l'abbeye as a possible option for her, and I kind of hope that they bypass it. She's had a pretty busy season as it is, and while she doesn't look like a Guineas type, the newly added races for 3 y/o sprinters for next year looks like something that might be up her alley. · 2 days ago
  • Northport · It was announced today that Tiggy Wiggy will bypass the Abbeye and will be put away for the year, I personally love this decision and hope she shows the same spark in 2015. · 3 hours ago
Any chance she loses next out? Second bullet fired this past weekend since she resumed working mid summer... (1/54) 59 1/5 at Los Alamitos. To the La Brea?
After the win on Friday, anyone have any idea of what is next race will be? Breeders Cup Mile? What was the Beyer on this last race? Thanks

  • Mary Z. · Cameo appearance maker Secret Circle is just plain faster than Goldie at 6 f. Then there is the new and improved 4 year old Goldie. And I like multi-suface Merit Man in this too. Speed fest! Cali-style. · 14 hours ago
  • geldedridgling · I'm not sure if Secret Circle is "faster" than Goldencents, seeing as Goldencents just set the track record for 7 furlongs at Del Mar and the fact that the Sprint Championship would be a cutback in distance for him. He's raced more recently and appears to be the horse to beat. Merit Man ran well at Del Mar but seems to be outclassed here. · 8 hours ago
