Does anyone know the full field?
There's a %99.9 chance Songbird will win, but if I had to pick a longshot it would be Land Over Sea or She's A Warrior.
Davona Dale with Rachels Valentina? It could be interesting.
With a speed duel to shoot at, Blingo rallied four-wide and out-gamed fellow longshot Imperative to take Saturday’s Grade II San Antonio Stakes.Read More

I don't see anyone challenging Mor Spirit. I think he'll use this to build momentum and we'll see him in May

There was no unique winner of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 on Friday, leaving a jackpot carryover of $508,090.75 for Saturday’s stakes-filled 13-race program, highlighted by the 58th running of the $500,000 Donn Handicap (G1). Read More
WOW!!! Terra Promessa eased up to win her allowance race at Oaklawn, very impressive!!! Looks like a prep for the G3 Honeybee next month. Very very impressive.

  • travel_vic · Don't know how to use all those messaging things, NEVER use them, BUT if you would like to come up to the press box at Woodbine, now during the harness meeting, or during the t-breds in April, please let me give you a view of racing that few get to see from my perspective on the 7th floor where the photo patrol input all arrives for view. I have another guest coming up next Thursday evening to watch the qualifiers and harness racing. It is a magnificent view up there. · 15 hours ago
  • elhubbo · Good luck, Julia. I remember an interview with a jockey named Jake Barton who rode a bit in Alberta, BC and Turf Paradise. Jake was a pretty good rider but certainly had his share of issues and was quite outspoken. He was also one of the many that tortured themselves to make weight. There have been several attempts to raise jockey weights over the years, but trainers passionately oppose it, because it would break down horses. Jake kinda bit the hand that fed him by preaching if 3 pounds is going to break your horse down, I don't wanna ride em anyway. They've handicapped horses with weight for years, the Brits seem to do it for the heck of it. Raising the starting point wouldn't hurt a bit, but I'm not sure it would change much. Boxers make the same kind of choice, that's why back in the old days so many jockeys also boxed, they were insanely light and strong. If bottom weight was 130lbs I'm sure you'd see 140lb guys killing themselves to make it down. No easy answer and people are getting larger all the time. Most jockeys seem to love their trade and as a kid who always dreamt what it would be like to race knowing id never get the chance because of genetic destiny, I understand why they do what they do. It must be crazy hard to give up feeling full, but rolling for home surrounded by horse power must be one of the greatest highs ever. · 11 hours ago

Samantha Nicole has been retired and will be bred to Bernardini.
With Dortmund abstaining from Saturday’s San Antonio Stakes, chances for the opposition improved dramatically, specifically in the case of Imperative, who was made the 5-2 morning line favorite in the Grade II race at 1 1/8 miles with $500,000 in purse money.Read More
  • elhubbo · If you get 6-1 on El Kabeir, it's a very good wager. Him and imperative a very solid exacta. · 12 hours ago
  • Mary Z. · I just think that Imperative benefits from more speed in a race, not less. · 12 hours ago
Friday's 5th race (3:03pm PT) from Santa Anita is an Optional Claiming event for 4-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track.#6 Melatonin (6-1) owns competitive one turn numbers and Hofmans is a profitable 31% first route. The fresh gelding reunites with winning rider ...Read More

The third year old filly division is smoking this year. I am more excited about this division than the boys!
Keen Ice will beat this 2016 Donn Handicap field by at least 3 lengths.
  • jrem1 · Very well could be, especially with Javier on board. And at the age of 4, he could be an even stronger closer than he was last year. · 2 days ago
  • cugel the clever · He wont get the pace scenario he needs to win. He wont finish on the board. · 12 hours ago
He a great horse but almost got beat in the 1M jackpot due to the tiring track. If he stays sound he'll have a great shot at the derby
  • Mark Kennedy via Disqus · He also had only three weeks to recover from the BC juevinile and to do that on the front end shows a lot of talent and heart · 13 hours ago
The problem for Keen Ice, and his supporters in the Donn, is that this spot would appear to be ripe for the upset.Read More

  • BeastBob via Disqus · If Keen Ice runs to the form he's been training in the past 6 weeks, he will win this race by at least 1 length (despite carrying more weight than everyone else). · 14 hours ago
  • Byrnzzz · Just sayin, if Javier Castellano chose Keen Ice over Pletcher's three runners, he must see something he likes, very rarely does he chose over Pletcher in a G1. · 13 hours ago
