Defending winner and two-time Horse of the Year Wise Dan and 2015 Eclipse Award turf champion Main Sequence are the brightest lights among 74 older grass stars on the roster of early nominations to compete in the 29th running of the $500,000 Woodford Reserve Turf Classic (Grade I) at Churchill Downs...Read More

Tampa is 10 percent chance of rain, 79 degrees, and partly cloudy. Aqueduct is clear and 49 degrees for Saturday.
Weather is predicted clear and 49 degrees for Saturday.
Prospect Park, Bolo, and even the Gomper may get part of the purse.
Without Ocean Knight or Carpe Diem this race comes up pretty light. Blame Jim will try to steal it, El Kabeir should be on the pace with Classy Class which may set it up for Tencendur, who's been working out pretty fast of late.
Super Colossal and Danzig Moon for a price. Top 2 look tough.
scanned in foal to Kingman on Monday!
The decision to run Ocean Knight in the Tampa Bay Derby sets up a showdown against 2014 Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile runner-up Carpe Diem.Read More

  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · DORTMUND will more than likely WIN by a larger margin than the races from Tampa Bay Derby and Gotham Stakes Winners : DORTMUND towers over the San Felipe Stakes By Far : The race will be exciting to see whom runs 2nd for those added points : · 5 hours ago
This will probably be the last time Dortmund runs a race at 8.5 furlongs. I'd imagine at this point on all his races will be from 9 furlongs on.
I have to admit, I am a bit surprised by the lack of respect for Ocho. But that's ok I'll happily pick up the extra cash when he wins and proves ya'll wrong. ;)

sir fever is a great hore i dont if is like invasor. ..invasor here in uruguay won the triple crown and the only lost was in dubai...sir fever has stamina and speed i believehe will win this saturday :)
  • Mary Z. · Good luck to Sir Fever. Yes, he has speed, stamina, and is unfazed by crowds. Hopefully he has adapted well to his new home. · 6 hours ago

Not surprised SB is running once again in California. He is an average California horse, hasnt proven anything outside of Cali. NOT the best horse in the country. I have my bets on Hoppertunity, he is a nice horse.

Shared Belief should win this with ease. So I guess the only real debate among the rest of the field is who will come in 2nd.
Going with Pain and Misery as a long shoot; he was 2nd in his last outing at SA. Not really a fan of any of the entries.
Shared Belief, “the best horse in the country,” will carry his greatest impost ever, top weight of 125 pounds, in Saturday’s Grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Handicap.Read More

  • rorschach1992 via Disqus · 125 seems actually quite light for Shared Belief, especially against this field. I almost expected to see him carry 129 when I saw the lineup. Good horses in here, but this is a decided step down from last year's renewal which featured Game on Dude, Will Take Charge and Mucho Macho Man. This is looking like a walk in the park for him, unless race riding like in the Goodwood happens again. · 12 hours ago
  • michael via Disqus · this is a really weak field and a million purse speechless.but i figured this was going to happen with that huge payday in dubai.sb can pretty much cash the check today,its a done deal.unless the whole field gets in his way he still wins by 5 · 9 hours ago
Just how good is this nag ..has never broke from the gate in order..first race never left the gate ..why Kent ..he has his bro nag...put a jock up that cares about the horse and lets see what this monster geliding can do ..and say what you want about Ria ..made $1.6 mill and sold for more then that ...Ron and Chris & Tom are on the top of their game..Get on the train or get out of the way..they are on a mission..
  • Mike Relva via Disqus · He's not a nag. Regarding Ria her entire career was mismanaged by a narcissistic owner. The horse suffered. · 10 hours ago
