Good race, boy he covered allot of ground racing in the 5 path around two of those turns ?!?! Very nice race, I think this one might make some noise. jlp
  • Goblin · Oh, yes, I thought he looked good in that debut race at Aqueduct, and he continued his progress today. Please may he stay sound! (P.S. jimmy, Curlin had a maiden winner at Oaklawn this afternoon as well.) · 25 minutes ago
  • Jbyrnes1 · Horses making there two turn debut in there 2nd career start aren't suppose to run that well, this was a very good race for him and he learned to race wide and battle hard, he took a giant step today and should get better by each race, very well done!!!! Go O.K!!!!!!! · 5 minutes ago
with a good trip he wins by 3! no mugging hopefully
  • Chris via Disqus · He barely beat a 70-1 shot last time. Chrome in jog burner · 1 hour ago
  • sully · You mean the same 70-1 shot that just beat the best sprinters in Cali? · 10 minutes ago
Gotta root for my guy Distinctiv Passion. That kid is FAST. Besides, I kinda like him a lot ;)

You did it, JB. He was wonderul and so grown up for only his second race. Thrilling to see the Stonestreet colors again.
  • Jbyrnes1 · I knew he could do it!!!!! I really liked this race, he was 5 wide the whole race, slow pace, and only 2nd career race and two turn debut, this was a good race for him, I think he will learn form this and mature more and hopefully bigger and better for him · 45 minutes ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · When the Speed Sheet numbers come out, it will show that O.K. probably ran 5 to 6 pts faster(translates into about 6 to 7 lengths). Yet with Beyer numbers,they should get the same rating(they do not adjust for ground loss). This should set him up perfect for the Tampa Bay Derby. · 19 minutes ago
Wowza! Sarah's Sis might have been best with that poor break, but TCB was something amazing because she shook her off once, and then dug in again when she came at her from the inside. Well done ladies, that was a fun race!
Like Margot in the 5th w/ Ameliatheaviator & Grazenette shortening up
The Azeri will be a perfect spot for Sugar Shock
YES!!!!!! Ocean Knight does it!!!! Wide the whole way, slow pace, very nice performance!!!! He didn't win by much, but I liked this win, for a first time around two turns, I liked what I saw, passed a big test today!!!! Nice job O.K
  • sully · Actually pretty impressive considering how wide he ran all the way around there. Have to wonder how he will respond when he's pinned on the rail now. · 48 minutes ago
It is time for thoroughbred owners to start coming up with names for their two-year-olds, however that task is much easier said than done. Read More

Like Ami's Flatter / Coomer / Catalina Red / Ocean Knight n/o
Wow. Completely left at the gate, trailed some 15 lengths behind- only to mow them down in the stretch in the center of the track. Nice move. I like him.
With the scratch of Rosalind.... like Hard Not to Like / Testa Rossi / Maria Maria / Rock on Baby n/o
http://www.hrtv.com/videos/?VideoCategoryId=2&VideoId=9WWLY7NGxLlkOohUAkOCMKoEE6TDgvshCM9IURdW7ro= Here you can watch today's work on HRTV. What do you think of it ?
...Is so beautiful
So sad he wasn't as good in the stud barn as he was on the track
This guy has a good pedigree, enough blood on both sides of his pedigree to carry him a distance, maybe a mile and a quarter
Commute, the 50K OBS purchase, is about to take it to his higher priced rivals
Looks like a lock in the 2nd @ SA
  • travel_vic · there ARE no locks...Did Townminister and Better Luck, were they notified for they did not respond as such? · 2 hours ago

  • Mary Z. · Sully, I will make a confession. Yes, I did look at pps, and Include Betty had a reasonably good race in there. Seemed to have improved, BUT, just for a little nostalgia, I picked Royal Delta's Suncoast post. · 1 hour ago

SA 1/31/2015 R8 - Baffert over Hollendorfer in G1 Las Virgenes

POST TIME 7:09 PM EST – Is this the Las Virgenes Stakes or the Jerry Hollendorfer Stakes?... as he trains half of the 10-horse field with Bob Baffert and Mark Casse accounting for two each.  Despite Hollendorfer entering 5 fillies here, it is B...

SA 1/31/2015 R8 - Race Appraisal

ANALYSIS: Jerry Hollendorfer has entered fully half of the 10 fillies that fill the Las Virgenes lineup.  That group is arguably headed by the twice-raced Glory.  Maiden winners were successfully stepped up to face this kind and win in wir...
