What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

With so much of the 2015 Kentucky Derby talk centered around Bob Baffert’s dynamic duo, Todd Pletcher finds himself in unfamiliar territory. Read More

ZATT's Star of the Week, is ... Moreno!
Stellar Wind earned a 95 Beyer Speed Figure for his victory yesterday in the G1 Santa Anita Oaks at Santa Anita.

  • Greg J. via Disqus · "He said, 'You don't have to worry about that no more. You ride him, win, lose or draw,' and I thanked him, because he's probably got 40 riders wanting to get aboard now, and sometimes people are influenced," said Lopez. "I can't tell you how gateful I am to have El Kabeir, Mr. Zayat, and my wife, in my life, for getting me to where I am now." Ahmed lied once again. · 40 minutes ago

Sunday's 2nd race (12:57pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is a $58,000 entry level Allowance event for CA-bred or sired fillies and mares traveling one mile on the turf course.#4 Water Issues (7-2) ran out of ground from the rail in her needed downhill return. She handles two turns for the recently hot ...Read More
Race #7 is the unique 6 1/2f turf "down the hill."  Seven contenders with the scratch of the #3 are, #1, 8, 2, 5.  The favorite #2 Home Run Kitten (5/2) is legitimate.  However, our choice goes to the "stranger danger,"  #1 Get Happy Mister (8/1).  Don't understand why the o...Read More

My knowledge is only a little regarding racing. Haven't devoted my entire life-following racing forms,etc. But,what I do know is ONE LOSS doesn't translate failure. Some of the "brains" on threads casting Coz as a failure...really need to grow a brain.
  • amdaman via Disqus · When studying a race, you look for positive signs. He made a run on the turn. It wasn't enough, but at least he showed something when the real race began. He couldn't sustain the run, but he didn't lose any ground in the stretch. Maybe in his next race or two he'll have a more sustained run. He didn't lose by much. Making up 8 lengths is not unsurmountable. Any improvement would put him in contention. · 2 hours ago
can't wait to see conquest curlgirl. her dam has produced some nice winners in the past.
i got to say he showed absolutley nothing and had he kept closing one could say it was the pace but at the 1/4 pole he came almost to the hip of the second to last horse and then faded back That's not a colt that's going to be a star anytime soon
  • Mike Relva via Disqus · I admit it,was wrong about him winning yesterday. Still think one race,(his debut) doesn't define a career. · 1 day ago
  • amdaman via Disqus · Perhaps you don't have a very good depth perception. He was never at anyone's hip. He made up some ground on the turn, and then flattened out, but from the 3/4 pole to the wire, he only lost 1/4 of a length. Go to Equibase and read the charts. Coming in 8 lengths back as a first-time starter in a MSW at a mile is not what I would call "absolutely nothing." · 3 hours ago
Is a Zenyatta´a son but... why he ran last, he's not zenyatta... shirrefs you're mistaken, change the training method and this horse will be better... last place and very far? please
  • Mike Relva via Disqus · Perhaps you should be training smart guy. · 3 hours ago
  • amdaman via Disqus · Very far??? 8 lengths back in a MSW, at a mile, and being the only first-starter is not a bad race. He won't stay a maiden for long. Don't leave your day job. · 3 hours ago
Saturday’s Santa Anita Park Recap – April 18 (Winning Early Pick 3 Ticket) Two sprint wire jobs (6.5f, 5.5f) on the fast main track. A 9f stalker and two closers (10f, 8f) made up the three firm turf winners. Felipe Valdez booted home a pair. Victor Espinoza and Peter Miller teamed up for two wins. ...Read More

Post Time 5:30 PM EDT: The 5th race at Santa Anita features a compact field of optional claimers going the tricky 7 furlongs distance.  The clear pace leader is #6 Got Even.  This 6 year-old gelding dispenses all his energy early and comes up empty late.  Even securing the lone lead ...Read More
In nine days, entries will be taken for the Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1). For Qatar Racing’s Peace and War to get a spot in the 14-horse starting gate, eight horses with more than the 10 points she has attained will have to pass on the race.Read More
  • Jay Harrison via Disqus · If the trainer of Peace and War wanted to be in the Oaks so bad he should of thought about running the horse more than once in a points race instead of talking about graded earnings, knowing that system is extinct. One race in six months was taking a huge chance. · 3 hours ago

Last few years winner have been derby fav. like Orb and CC. if we assume fav win 33% of times assuming that theory this year Fav should not win.
