What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y28S6jlZCB4 at about 1:40 into this watch the winner just about take out the 6 at the top of the lane: created a hole where there wasn't one.
  • mikebalaz · Watch the head on @hrn-0fb7b94859270979acba00a01fdbf08e:disqus the grey was laying into horses the whole way around. He did it to dynamic sky the whole way down the backstretch. It just looks a little different because the winner won the battle haha. if you think that a bumping really changed the outcome of the race i would seriously question your judgement in the racing world. · 3 hours ago
Bayern just destroyed them today. We found out many things in this race.The 2 most important points. Number 1,anyone that can but refuses to race without Lasix has to seriously reconsider their mindset. I liked SI before i heard he was running without it. He easily became a toss. The other is that i seriously hope that once and for all that these ridiculous notions to run fillies with the boys are put to rest. That includes your Closed Hatches and Beholder. Today THE FILLY SAW WHAT IT TAKES TO BEAT RACEHORSES.

  • Mary Z. · Now, about the Lasix and Social Inclusion, when was he ever all that hot outside of the speed-favoring GP wins? How about it being one of those blinkers off-on-off type moves? A bit of desperation. Would have to ask the trainer, if one had his confidence. Just not good enough. Until someone pointed it out the other day, I hadn't even noticed the L or not for Social Inclusion and would not have considered him for the Haskell with or without it. And as far as someone bringing up the Royal Delta team as an example of running a horse(mare) without the L and winning, first off, they don't need it. Want to ask me, what about bleeders? Well, they still bleed straight through it, so you tell me. And I wonder if maybe it was best to have her off of the unnecessary diuretic for most of her last season because they wanted to send her overseas to be bred, and have the foal or foals respected?? I doubt it was an anti-Lasix activist move since that barn still runs their horses on it. Hope this makes the front page. Don't know how that is decided , what makes the cut. · 12 hours ago
  • supercool666 · This race was a step too far for her, that's for sure!!! Some defenders are saying it's because she had a "wide trip" and got unsettled in the stalls because of Social Inclusion, but that is all B.S, she was just not good enough! · 3 hours ago
Once I saw Bayern get the lead I knew it was over. He ran a nice race today. He reminds me a lot of game on dude- pure speed and can dominate any horse if he gets alone on the lead. Dangerous horse! Congrats to Baffert he's a good guy and I like him as a trainer
  • triple_double · Is Martin Garcia a better rider than Hall of Famer Mike Smith? I think so, especially on a frontrunner horse like Bayern & Game On Dude. I hope martin gets the nod this time on G.O.D. · 11 hours ago
  • supercool666 · It was a really great performance, I knew he would lead, because of his amazing speed, but I thought he would tire in that final furlong, but the beast just keep going!!! This is a special horse, I wonder where he will go next?? He has to turn up at the Breeders Cup, I would say the Dirt Mile would be the ideal race. · 3 hours ago

He may come here for the BC I have a feeling the BC will be going to a foreign horse this year
December foal. Get it? 2014 Haskell winner's dam
Welts on humans, as they are on horses, ARE the result of inflammatory byproducts causing vasodilation AT the point of that inflammation. ANY physiology book will tell you about trauma caused secondary inflammation and the blood chemicals released. Living in the world of make believe and NEVER EVEN BEING that close to a horse just finishing its run, OR, for that matter, the to the vets that report such injuries all the time, the REAL world interrupts your fantasy once again.
Have you never been in the winner's circle to observe, FIRST HAND, the red welts on the flanks of the many winners? A stick can ruin a horse as it DID with that poor gutted Rachel Alexandra...almost beat silly several times

Just didn't fire- and no excuses for her. She still ran down the stretch with her ears pricked- didn't seem to be full out at all. Really stinks because she could have really finished well if she actually ran hard. But I also don't think any horse was beating Bayern today once he had the lead. I hardly think she disgraced herself though- it's not like she finished dead last like Ria Antonia. She still finished well for not putting in any run whatsoever

  • cleclair1994 · The inside of the track was the place to be all day at Monmouth. Untapable was 3 wide all the way around and Bayern took advantage of the bias. Just look how Albano got up for second coming up the rail. Being wide was to her disadvantage. · 8 hours ago
  • Northport · I'm with the others saying she absolutely did put in a run, as Rosie going to the whip multiple times would suggest. No one was beating Bayern today, but if you can honestly say that she didnt run hard you may need a bigger tv · 8 hours ago

  • Ruffianlover · And this is why I dont jump all over the Belmont winner. Not that Tonalist didn't run a decent race, but 9 times out of 10 the Belmont winner gets praised like he's he next three year old champ, and then they don't nearly live up to those expectations. Game race by Wicked Strong who is normally a closer. Never was a fan but he is a nice horse coming into his own. Hopefully he can be more consistent jan he has been in the past · 1 day ago
  • Sullivan · Tonalist was chasing Wicked Strong after going wide throughout and being ridden like the best horse... none anticipated Wicked Strong being up front, and that includes Jimmy Jerkens who upon giving the horse blinkers said that he did not think the horse would be anywhere close to the front in an HRTV interview. This showed what we already knew. Wicked Strong is deadly at 9f and is a Grade 1 level horse. What I would hope we see in the Travers is what happens now when Bayern has a horse look him in the eye, and what Wicked Strong and Tonalist look like knocking heads at 10f · 8 hours ago

  • Matthew L Linda Jr. via Disqus · In the end, girls don't beat boys. That stat will always be measured and those handicapping rules, remain academic. Untapable had nothing to prove in the Haskell and Trainer Asmussen is a JERK to destroy her 2014 record. American greed and poor judgement is my last conclusion. Jersey Skip · 12 hours ago
  • Sullivan · Asmussen held out, he didn't run her in the Preakness, Belmont, Dwyer, he waited to give her more time, until she was ready, and then she got beat today. He did everything right, and it is not his control where she runs. I am sure that you also were against Zenyatta running in the BCC, because it would destroy her 2009 record to only run against girls... wait -- what??? You're a joke. Pssssssssssst...

Wildcat Red can't beat Untapable! I will tell you what will happen in this race, Bayern will be leading until the furlong pole, then this superstar filly will take charge and win by 2 lengths OR MORE. :-)
@sullivan I think I would rather have Johnny V on her than Rosie. What do you think? I just hope Rosie doesn't overuse the stick on her like she's notorious for and ruin her. I believe that's what happened to RA with Calvin letting into her
Bayern, in just his seventh start, won the Haskell (G1) by 7¼ lengths, giving trainer Bob Baffert victory number seven in the Jersey Shore Invitational.Read More
I wish good luck to Jess's Dream, Cozmic One and all of Rachel & Zenyatta's little babies. Their mom's were both amazing fillys and I look forward to watching them race.
