Lane Luzzi is the latest to be featured in Mary Cage's series "Racing's Future," which features young racing fans who plan to pursue a career in the Thoroughbred industry.Read More
  • Jean Blocker Castleberry Adsit via Disqus · Lane Luzzi already has the passion and dedication to become a "good horseman". A year ago he learned to ride and took to the saddle like a "pro". This last summer earned the reputation as a hard-worker, learning everything he could about riding and racing. "Lil Luz" is definitely a winner and name to remember for our future! · 9 hours ago
  • Goblin · Lane Luzzi sounds as though he's sensible and grounded, as well as passionate! It'll be fun to watch as he makes the transition from exercise rider to jockey. · 7 hours ago
Would anyone like to share any tips on their methods for handicapping horses stretching out from a sprint to a route for the first time in their career, not including breeding. Is there anything else possibly in their running lines etc. Also would anyone care to share their thoughts on a horse's running style in sprints? Will a closer in a sprint still be a closer in a route or will coming out of a sprint suggest possibly showing more speed in a route? Any feedback would be helpful. A few times in recent weeks I have found myself handicapping 3-4 year old horses with 10+ starts stretching out for the first time and not knowing what to make of them.
  • Anne Shaw · Not sure if its the best but I watch the numbers at 1/4, 1/2, top of the stretch and see if they are gaining, just passing tired horses, or really moving out. Gains near the finish where they open up usually indicate they can go farther. · 7 hours ago

  • https://www.facebook.com/chris · I was positive it was a Cal Bred and when you put him in the same time frame as two all-time greats plus the grade 1 counts seemed to put it in the Seventies. There have been enough all-time greats since, but rarely were two of them running at their peak at the same time after the Golden Decade. I knew it wasn't Ancient Title since he had way too many victories and he wasn't a homebody.Soooo..... Crystal Water had to be it since he set the track record in the Big Cap and I remembered he took the Gold Cup and the Californian plus the Oak Tree Invitational. · 8 hours ago

Not only is it up for sale, it is has pending litigation coming from LA Quarter horse owners over distribution of Video Poker money. If they can't come to a quick resolution, then FGs will cut 2 mil from purse money for this years meet- the biggest hit will be the LA Derby. The purse would be lowered from 1 mil to 600,000.
What a great run! I'm really impressed with him.

Standup Comic finished off the board in a pair of races last month at Timonium and was dismissed by the bettors in Wednesday’s second race at Laurel Park. The 6-year-old gelding got the last laugh taking the $15,000 claimer with an impressive off the pace victory.Read More

So GENIUS,using your formula. Does that mean if an A Student and Arista worthy one attended a Community College ,he or she would come out with the same abilities as if they attended an Ivy League school. After all.it has nothing to do how one learns. They would be the same finished product when they got out.
WHERE One runs has nothing to do with HOW one runs. Would not Derek Jeter be the same ball player if he was at Podunk Junction ball park or Yankee Stadium?
  • amino998 · A lot more bad hops, bad pitching and bad competition at Podunk Junction >> You KNOW it's ALL about the match-ups. · 8 days ago
  • ekindy · I don't necessarily agree with that. The stadium itself doesn't make him better, but the competition he faces at that stadium certainly does make him a better ball player. Do you really think he would have been a great player in his 30's if he had spent his entire 20's playing for some single A (or worse) team? Actually all you need to do is look at Japanese players. Certainly there are success stories of players who played in NPB (which is much closer, IMO, in talent to MLB than Emerald Downs regulars are to the top thoroughbred talent) who made it in the MLB, but there are just as many failures. Now that analogy isn't the best because not facing top level competition in racing isn't nearly as bad as not facing top level competition in baseball. But she's not going to go unchallenged in Santa Anita the way she was in Emerald Downs. She's going to face competition that is not only just as physically talented as she is, but also much more experienced in finding ways to grit out tough wins. That could make a difference. I'm not saying she's doomed for failure. Physical talent like hers goes a long way in this sport. But they aren't doing her any favors by letting her go unchallenged this long into her career. · 12 hours ago
