What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

with the timeing of his debut it looks like there gonna give him 1 chance to make the derby. If he dosent break his madein first out I dont see him trying any derby preps cause if he is a late bloomer like his mom why risk it now
My boy is making it big. Good run yesturday
I guess Upstart's win just flatters Texas Red alittle bit more...very interested to see if he's progressed in the 3 months since the Breeder's Cup.
DRF's Brad Free says on HRTV that Lady Eli is starting to train again and Chad Brown says that she will make her three year old debut in the G3 Appalachian Stakes at Keeneland on April 12th, according to DRF
Unfortunately Cozmic One does not appear ready to race. His last work was not very impressive at all. At this point it's not realistic to expect him to make any derby prep races.

Looking for a spot to get Birdatthewire started in her 3-year-old campaign, trainer Dale Romans thought he found a logical one Saturday at Gulfstream Park.Read More
  • jvickers · For wagering purposes, I don't know anyone who likes deep closers (they are too pace dependent). But for watching purposes, you have to love them! I watched the Forward Gal Stakes again this morning. For most of the race, Birdatthewire was struggling to stay on the screen. Talk about coming from the clouds! Happily, I singled Consumer Credit, played the 1 and 8 in leg 2, and then spread 6 deep in the third leg of the pick 4, tossing in the 4 for fun! Cashed a nice ticket when Dubai Sky came home safely in the 11th. · 3 hours ago

  • bradleysteffens via Disqus · Nice list, but "something on the female side" for Calculator? You mean something other than a Breeder's Cup Classic champion and (still) track record-holder at Woodbine for 1-1/4 miles? The experts said Calculator's grandpa couldn't get the distance, but he managed to hold off Louis Qatorze and Cigar to win the BC Classic despite a wide trip. · 7 hours ago
With odds-on favorite Acceptance spent with a quarter mile to run, longshot Mischief Clem was ultra-game in fending off Pulmarack through the lane, as he prevailed in Saturday’s $250,000 California Cup Derby by a head under Kent Desormeaux.Read More

Able Friend makes it 3 straight wins and back to back G1's winning the G1 Stewards Cup barely breaking a sweat under a hand ride by Joao Moreira. This year's renewal of the Stewards Cup upgraded from a domestic Hong Kong G1 to international G1 status.
  • Ambitiousd · I wonder what the next move will be? Staying in Hong Kong for the owners is like printing money, but this type of talent is begging to go international. · 8 hours ago
He's stamping himself as the finest turf miler in the world. Amazing performance in the Stewards Cup. What a racehorse.
