What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

I was HP's hotwalker sure wish I had a winners circle picture. I recall him escaping from his stall night before winning Florida Derby, he ran straight down the shedrow to me as I stepped out of room at end of C-barn.
Sent off as the 3-5 favorite in a field of 7, Competitive Edge lived up to the heavy favoritism laid upon him by bettors in the Grade 1 Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga.Read More
  • zatt · Not sure what this means for 2015, but he is the most talented juvenile I have seen yet this year. · 4 hours ago
  • travel_vic · Every year for as long as I have followed the late summer 2 y/o meetings (Del Mar and Saratoga) both produce some of these front end monsters. Until they look really quick ones in the eye and put them away, these are just quick early maturing horses. · 1 hour ago

You have a gift, not only as a writer but as a giving person. We have missed you coming by the barn and Well Armed would love to have you on his back again and be fed a mint. Come see us when you have time. Regards to your mom. · 1 hour ago

  • tmallios via Disqus · Amino if the Private turfs anywhere near his best dirt races. Your Pal and feel good story Rene just may be needing a Polaroid after the race. After so many false alarms he shows up in the land of Brotherly Love. Have to assume that they know exactly how good he is on the green. With time running out to the BCC, i guess they made their decision.But WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In NYC today ,they are predicting scattered T-STORMS. iF The same is slated for South of the TPKE. Then he becomes a mortal lock. I would say that if it stays on the lawn and they give me 5/2, i can take a shot. Pedroza shipping in is a plus,doubt he has to much family in Pa. and is so anxious to see the Liberty Bell. Stone Cold in the feature. To talented to underachieve as he has been. Today may be the day at a price. See ya at the windows. · 14 hours ago

  • travel_vic · Greatness is a condition that many attempt but few attain. Over the last 30 years or so there have only been TWO..Any good horse, and this one is, comes down the pike amidst of void of mediocrity get this label by default.....What happens OFF the track is also irrelevant to the performance, the challenges, the weight carrying and the quailty of fields conquered. This one, like the great geldings is very good, but not yet great, · 4 hours ago
  • travel_vic · Matter of fact I have NEVER met a single Equus whom I hated, but really, the only horses qualified to have the label GREAT next to their name, the few, the memorable, the ones who's names will last over time due to the level of their ONGOING and repetitive high level performances at jar dropping levels: Cigar and the Z girl and that's it. · 4 hours ago

First time tested, but Wake Up Nick now 4 for 4 after game win in Cal-bred I'm Smokin at DMR.
Stormy Lucy is the 5-1 fifth choice on the morning line for Monday’s $200,000 Grade II Yellow Ribbon. But that number could go down considering red-hot Rafael Bejarano, aboard for two straight victories before he was injured last spring, will be back in the irons.“We’re feeling great about having him back, as anybody would the way he’s riding now,” said Mike Boag, aide to trainer Ed Moger, Jr., Sunday morning. “Rafael knows her, he knows when to move with her.”
Live action returns on Friday at Laurel Park with nine races that includes free admission, free programs and drawings for tickets to OktoberFest and the Brew & Bourbon Classic on the Laurel Park apron.
Miss Serendipity came from well back to storm to the front late on her way to a 1 ¼-length victory over Parranda in the Grade 2 Yellow Ribbon at Del Mar.Read More
New year, same faces as JD Acosta and Hugh McMahon took home blue ribbons at the 2014 Maryland State Fair. The same thing happened last year. Acosta was aboard fourteen winners, outdistancing Cecily Evans and Carlos Gutierrez, who each rode six. Trainer Hugh McMahon sent out five winners, edging King Leatherbury and Hamilton Smith by one at the end of the seven day stand.

  • ekindy · I've been saying all along that she should go for the Sprint (if she can realistically qualify, which might be a problem even with an LA Woman win if it is oversubscribed). However I would absolutely love to see her go head to head against Beholder, to see if she is the real deal. · 8 hours ago
