What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

When Moreno earned his first Grade 1 win four weeks ago, he did so at odds of 10-1. Much like the Whitney, I believe Saturday’s Grade 1 Woodward, run at the same nine furlong distance, and over the same Saratoga main track, is ripe for an upset, but this time the hunter is the hunted. Let’s take a l...Read More

I just notice that on the HRN POWER RATINGS,that this horse is rated 10th. I could care less if voters have the right to vote for whoever they want. But HRN if you want a legitimate racing site,then rename your list header to "OUR PETS". By calling it a Power Ranking,you are showing a blatant disrespect to those that actually follow the game with a serious perspective.
Gooooooooo Debbie , I might have to go to that one. jlp
Friday's 6th race (6:30pm PT) from Del Mar is the $100k El Cajon for 3-year-olds traveling one mile on Polytrack.  #9 Big Tire (7-2) switches to Bejarano 3rd off the shelf and he gets pace to chase in the paper race.      Play Friday’s Del Mar games at DerbyWars.com  #8 Conq...Read More

Although I am very excited he is returning to the track, his campaign is boring and unexciting. He's already won all these races! Try something new. He's already shown his dominance on the turf. Why not go to the dirt for a little change?

  • Melann Johnston via Disqus · There is nothing boring and unexciting about Wise Dan!!! It's doesn't matter where they put him, I just love watching this guy run!!! He is alive and that's what matters!! Go Dan!! · 9 hours ago
  • 5timeHOTY via Disqus · So if a 10f turf horse won the Arlington Million every year would you complain that it was boring?. · 4 hours ago
surprised that they are going to the turf with this guy, i wish them well, will very nice to see him vs. Wise Dan, however, if i trained the horse, i would've considered running him in the Kelso at Belmont Park, I know it's a cross country trip, but its the only logical dirt prep for the BC Dirt Mile, its right up his wheelhouse and, if the field doesn't come up tough, he would very tough, and i think he like Belmont, almost won the Met Mile and finished a very good 2nd in the champagne as a 2 year old, anyway, hope all goes well at Keeneland
Sean McCarthy, trainer of Gold Cup at Santa Anita winner Majestic Harbor, sixth in Sunday’s Pacific Classic, said the horse came out of the race in excellent shape and is headed for the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita with “possibly” one start, in the Awesome Again, the stepping stone to the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic.
Joel Rosario, leading rider at Del Mar from 2009-2011 before moving his tack to the East Coast, will be back for a one-day stand on Sunday. He is booked on four mounts, the main one being Flamboyant for Patrick Gallagher in the Del Mar Derby.
