What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

The Connections of Untapable rooled the dice and shot for the Moon. The result of all this,it earned them a trip to Parx and now point for The Cotillion Stakes. Not belittling this race,it has its history. But to a filly that was head and shoulders the best in her division. The Alabamas winners trophy should of had her name on it. Hopefully the so called new breed owner will come to their sanity and respect the value of divisional races that their predecesors valued so greatly. All of a sudden in todays game,these races are rendered meaningless. They listen to their speed figure gurus and to a fan base that has absolutely no clue about racing. They want the glory,they want the story and all the fame that comes from it. What they do not figure on is the bottom line affect to the filly. This stab at Fools Gold has basically cost her the season. The effort knocked her out so much,that they are pointing to a race 8 weeks down the line. What is their move after that,The BC Distaff. With 1 race under her belt,she will get eaten up by the likes of the leaders of the Female Older Division. Assmusen is getting better at this.With Rachel she was succesful at 3 against the Boys, but the strenuous schedule killed her career. With their decision to run in this years Haskell, they may of ruined another career at an earlier age. Yes i am sure someone will come out and say that Fillies always run against the Boys and win. Yes but that is on the Turf ,where it is not as strenuous an effort. Zennyatta was succesful the 2 times she did it. But Shirrefs did it when she was older and much more developed physically and mentally. He also took his shot at the last race of the year,not during the Peak. Even the Hall Of Famer Bill Mott. With the fastest female horse of all in this decade. That would be Royal Delta,he took his one shot in Dubai and learned his lesson. Enjoy Bensalem , Pa. Ihear it is gorgeous that time of the year. You earned this trip.

  • jay.harrison.52035772 · C'mon tmallios, just 10 days ago on this thread, from what you were writing about her in response to dani, how she would destroy the field of boys and you had the same thoughts as the owners had about running against the boys. Now since she lost you are saying what a stupid decision it was on their behalf. It's so easy to write something after the fact. Hindsight is 20/20. 10 days ago, you weren't talking like she was taking a stab at this race, you sounded pretty confident she would win this race. Even so much as saying she wouldn't be facing the tier 1 colts. But now that she got beat, they were basically taking a stab with her · 1 hour ago
  • triple_double · These were TMallios comments 10 days ago. What a difference between then and now (after the fact). And I'm a clueless fan base. :) TMallios response to Dani Pugh - 10 days ago- Not to be condesending towards the colts she will be facing. I do not think she will be facing any of the so called "Tier 1 " colts. Bayern ran huge sprinting and Social Inclusion has as much promise as any on the trail. But neither has done anything to date but show immense potential. I would be absolutely shocked if she did not handle this bunch on Haskell Day. The race profile fits her to a tee. I still think that The Travers will be the most looked at race. If not for anything.After she spanks this bunch,the pleas to run in the Travers will be aplenty. · 9 minutes ago

Mary,Havre De Grace was fast,but nothing spectacular. To give you a barometer on how fast they ran at their best. The lower the number the faster the horse. HDG was running 0's (comparable to what the top older ones are running today) Beholder in last years BC Distaff ran a (- 2.5) negative. The Queen Royal Delta at her best was running (-4 and -3'son many occassions) Negative numbers. I think the best Zennyatta ran was (-2). Rachel was running (-2 & -3). But it is not the final figure that is that important. Many of these got credited for ground loss. That is what made Royal Delta more impressive.Hers were speed numbers.She was rarely caught wide.

  • tmallios via Disqus · Mary that is why along with you i was a huge supporter of her. Why i make the claim she was by far the best female horse of this century at her best. Winning is irrelevant ,unless you own or bet the horse. It is predicated mostly on the competition.As far as sheer talent ,speed and overall class. The rest could not hold a candle to her. · 2 hours ago

another look has it this way: 2 Ami's Holiday 4 Matador 8 Lynx 10 Lions Bay
Matador would not be too big a surprise
hard to beat the chalk..NOW if it rains hard at the Fort often the first one out of the gate triumphs so watch for the bias on races underneath if it is wet. 2 Ami's Holiday 8 Lynx 10 Lions Bay 6 Coltimus Prime 6 and 8 go out and 2 10 come later......Poor old venue is on life support and is hemorrhaging money.

  • travel_vic · What are you trying to do during a day at the track? MAXIMIZING your wagering return. IF a big favorite is sure to hit he board, use the ploy RIDING HIS COATTAILS. Hook that one in the first three spots as a key and then hope a longer priced medium contentious horse gets lucky. Take home the groups dumb dollars by playing the race smartly. · 4 hours ago
