  • hannahWTC1 · Go Texas Red! He has a very fast turn of foot, but at 7f he might not have enough ground to get there. Talent wise, he towers over this field, so I think he will win. Long shot pick is Serbian Syclone · 12 minutes ago

Humoristica wins in career debut, daughter of 2003 champion two year old filly Halfbridled
I met up with Thunder Gulch a couple weeks ago. He is looking great for his age and even indulged in some selfies. Best wishes in his retirement.

Thunder Gulch, 1995 Kentucky Derby and Belmont stakes winner, 1995 champion three year old male, and leading sire of 2001, has been retired and pensioned from stud duties at Ashford Stud near Versailles, Ky. The 23-year-old son of Gulch is "in great health and doing well," according to Ashford's director of sales Charlie O'Connor. Thunder Gulch's top runner at stud is Point Given , Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old male of 2001, the year Thunder Gulch was the leading sire in North America by progeny earnings. Winner of the Preakness and Belmont (both gr. I) stakes, Point Given earned more than $3.9 million. He stands at Calumet Farm near Lexington. Article on Bloodhorse

  • MustangLover2889 · He's back with Pletcher. Been training at Palm Beach Downs · 45 days ago
  • michael_best · According to reports, Pletcher's Derby contenders will get two preps before May. I think we will see him go back to NY for the Gotham and the Wood · 3 hours ago
Should not run in any more 10 point preps. Should wait for a 50 pointer. Perhaps the Fountain Of Youth.
  • michael_best · According to reports, Pletcher is going to have his Derby contenders run two preps before May. For Carpe Diem, I would say run him in the F.O.Y. or the Spiral, and then the Blue Grass. · 3 hours ago
Vercingetorix canters home easily past True Story under a hand ride by Christophe Soumillon to win the G2 Al Rashidiya at Meydan for trainer Mike De Kock. A hugely impressive 2015 carnival debut considering Vercingetorix had been off the racetrack since finishing 3rd in the G1 Audemars Piguet QE II Cup at Sha Tin back in April, 2014.
Dr. Fager's trainer John Nerud turns 102 on February 9th. The last racehorse for the horseman, appropriately named Final Chapter, won his maiden recently at Aqueduct. Said Nerud of the victory: "I won with the first horse I ever owned and bred and I've won with the last horse I owned and bred. And I've had a few good ones in between."

Ocho Ocho Ocho, unraced since winning the Delta Jackpot Stakes in Louisiana in November, worked a half-mile in 47.60 seconds at Santa Anita on Thursday. After the work, Jim Cassidy tells DRF's Steve Andersen that the work was so good, that he now could be ready in time to start in the Feb.7th Robert B. Lewis Stakes, though definite, Cassidy says he's seriously considering it, according to DRF
Good luck to all.
Sometimes i just do not get the Racing Industry as a whole . At Aq. today, they carded an 8 Race Program. In 2 of these Races(25 % of the card ). We are looking at a basic match race. In the 2nd race,it was scratched down to a 3 horse field. In the 4th race, it is a true match race( 2 horse field). I understand that there is absolutely no way to control this. But ever since the Ruffian tragedy, it seems as though "Match Races" have become a 4 Letter word. Yet today on the same card, we are presented with 2 of them. To compound the matter, i beleve on the balance of the card, we have at most a 6 horse field. I have no idea as to why so many scratches. Maybe the Snow storm had something to do with it. But i do not think so. It seems the days after 1 or multiple cancellations, there are multiple cancellations on those cards.I tip my hat to any of the brave people that are willing to brave the elements and attend todays races. I would be very interested to see what portion of todays handle is live and home network betting outlets. I would not be one of those to say cancel winter racing. To many people depend on this time . But there has to be a middle ground solution.
  • amino998 · Many of the scratches were entries erroneously taken in violation of the 14 day rule. Will report back on handle :) http://www.drf.com/news/more-scratches-loom-thursday-card · 6 hours ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · That in itself makes it more embarrassing for NYRA. They put rules in order to cover their butts . They make sure that all the P.R. is handled to get the message out. The one thing they forget to do is put in a system to monitor these rules. Almost similar to the Belmont Stakes fiasco,when some did not get the memo about arriving in the Paddock. Leads one to wonder in a very strong manner. Do these guys running the show actually have a clue what is going on,or do they just pat themselves on the back. · 6 hours ago
Any idea when or where they are pointing to bring him back to the races?
