Out of the jim Dandy
I see Stanford, Tekton & Tommy Macho are entered in the Curlin Stakes On Friday at Saratoga. Those 3 Are also entered in the West Virginia Derby on Saturday at Mountaineer along with War Story. The Haskell is Shaping Up to be a 5 Horse Field.
Solow wins his 4th straight G1 this season with a victory over Arod in the G1 Sussex Stakes at Goodwood. Dating back to last season, Solow has now won 8 straight races and 11 of his last 12 overall. Pretty impressive!
This is going to be one of the greatest race in this year, even better than the Belmont. Honor Code vs Tonalist vs Palace Malice vs Lea. Two Belmont Stakes Winners. I hope Palace Malice gets his shot

JByrnes, John and anyone else attending on Sunday. Have a great day ,and enjoy yourselves. Hope you get great weather.
"There is nothing left to be said about the greatness of this horse and any word to the contrary is pure BS"
Curious to see who's actually going to run in this versus WV Derby (Stanford, Tommy Macho and Tekton all cross entered) and Haskell (Tekton also nominated).
Breaking Lucky came from last to spring a 13-1 upset in the 80th edition of the $500,000 Prince of Wales Stakes, second jewel of Canada’s Triple Crown of Racing, Tuesday at Fort Erie. Read More

Wouldn't it be great for horseracing if this guy could come back to form at 8 years old and compete in the bc mile?
One of the prettiest horses, up there with Ruffian and Union Rags for my top three. Cannot wait to see him run in the Whitney and then hopefully against AP. I don't know who I would want to win!
After #1 with a bullet, trying to identify the best horses in America in 2015 is no easy task.Read More

  • Bill B. via Disqus · I really like, agree and appreciate most of the things written here. Other than #1, slim pickins for a top 10 list in a year that began with so much potential. The lack of SB & Chrome are the major loss, but what happened to Lady Eli so early in her brilliant career is the saddest event of the year. The rest in nearly every division just keep taking turns beating each other. I'd like to see Honor Code step up to the plate and take over the leadership of the older males, but after three years in training, we still are just not sure just how good he is. Here's hoping. · 23 hours ago
  • Ferrisjso26 · I have a feeling in a week Frosted will be No.2 behind AP. Relatively speaking there's really not much separating NO.3 and 10 IMO. Here's my list. 1 AP 2 Lady Eli 3 Noble Bird 4 Honor Code 5 Shared Belief 6 Tonalist 7 Frosted 8 California Chrome 9 Speighster 10 Hard Aces · 13 hours ago
