  • Leslie Crane via Disqus · Beautifully written. I've loved racing since the '70's, the era of the super horses. Secretariat, Affirmed. Alysar, The Bid, Seattle Slew. The horse who "got to me", became my obsession was Point Given. I worshipped that horse, found every morsel of information about him that I could. I was paralyzed with sorrow when he didn't win the Derby. But, I rebounded and was so excited when he won the Preakness and Belmont. Then he won the Haskell and the Travers!! I was so excited for Breeders Cup. I'll never forget the day I heard he was being retired to stud due to injury. I was in my car and actually heard it on the radio (there was no Twitter in 2001). I had to pull my car over to the side of the road because I was crying. I travelled all over the country to see Point Given. I loved visiting him at Three Chimneys. He will always be "my" horse. My first total obsession. Then, along came Zenyatta.... · 19 minutes ago
From this morning's Racing Post web-site: 4-time G1 winner Kingman has been retired due to having to undergo treatment for a sore throat, which rules him out of any Autumn targets.

  • hannahWTC · My week just got even worse… WTC, GoD, PoS all retired and Chrome finishes 6th… Last time I commented "Who is Next?" but i don't even wanna say it this time in case it happens... · 15 hours ago
  • jonquil · Kingman's been on antibiotics for the throat infection and Gosden has claimed to be unable to train him at this time, saying it'd take him some time to get better so he wouldn't be fit to race. On top of that, Kingman simply isn't Frankel and his options for races as a 4yo were probably limited enough, and they probably didn't think he'd be strong enough against tough competition at any further than a mile to warrant keeping him in training. Retiring him now makes sense. · 29 minutes ago
A pair of Grade 1-winning 3-year-olds turned in separate five-furlong breezes on the Belmont Park training track on Monday, with Travers winnerV. E. Day covering the distance in 1:00.69 and Belmont Stakes victor Tonalistbeing clocked in 1:00.09.Read More
This horse has no business in santa anita on breeders cup weekend. She has beat the same 4 horses in almost every race. Its almost like beating stable mates at this point.
Hey mister Oxley what happened to Stealcase?
Will Take Charge, who clinched Champion 3-Year-Old Male honors last year with a win at Churchill Downs in the $550,700 Clark Handicap Presented by Norton Healthcare (Grade I), was retired to Three Chimneys Farm on Sunday due to a mild strain to a branch of his suspensory apparatus.Read More

You could go on and, on of why kelso is the greatest racehorse of all-times. I think more and, more people will wake up to the incredible things kelso did. One of the craziest was how for a horse who weighed about 1000 pounds if he weighed that much, was carrying 12pct of his body weight! That's more than a big horse like forego, who weighed about 1,200 pounds and, stood 17 hands, was carrying. For a horse to equal kelso, they would have to win the breeders cup 5 years in a row nad, win the jockey gold cup during those same 5 years in a row, which isn't even 2 miles anymore! Not to mention that he is also one of only 3 horses to win the jockery gold cup, the woodward and, the whitney in the same year. He would have won the woodward 4 times but, he hit his head againts the gate and, fell and, lost to his cousin gun bow by only a nose! Think he would have been the only horse had he won that woodward, to win the jockey gold cup, the woodward and, the whitney 2 times in one year! He is also the only horse to win the handicap triple crown carrying over 130 pounds in all 3 races! Only horse to ever set a record on dirt and, then set a record on grass, just 11 days later! He was also the first horse to win best 3 year old and, not win the triple crown! When he won the last jockey gold cup he broke his own record at 3:19 1/5 and, that was on a sloppy track and, when he did his win at the dc which is againts the best horses in the world he broke that record on 3 tight turns and, they used tape instead of gates in that race cause the foreign horses don't use gates, which would have thrown kelso off. You could go on and, on about KING KELLY. Kelso is the greatest racehorse of all-times all respects to his great grandfather man of war who was one hell of a horse. Yes, 'ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A HORSE NAMED KELSO BUT, ONLY ONCE'. When they brought kelso to belmont for the last time, he was 26 and, forego was right there with him and, forego was 13 and, some people say kelso still looked as young as forego. Kelso was a freak, a real phenomenon and, he will not happened again. I'll never forget him, KELSOS' BIGGEST FAN, TEDDY.

  • buds · I cant see this door being "wide open", I think Chrome is standing in the door way, and Shared Belief and Bayern are going to have to win the Classic coupled with an off the board finish from Chrome to take the honors. The horse DOMINATED the entire first half of the year, then took a very respectable 4th in the Belmont. Again coming back off lay off, ran a good race and couldn't catch a hot and talented speed horse that got away with easy fractions on a speed bias track. Although I think Shared Belief is the better horse and my BC Classic pick as of now, I still think Chrome has had the better season. · 9 hours ago
  • buds · Andy- I agree, Bayern should go to the Mile, although I would cross enter because if the classic is lacking early speed to challenge him, we all see how that usually ends up! · 9 hours ago
Good little set up
Two warriors bought/claimed away from Jacobson and now retired: Be Bullish (claimed by Repole) and Cayambe (bought by his breeder Geri Forrester). Happy retirement/retraining!
