11 for 11. What is your favorite race of hers that she has won? Mine is the breeders cup juvenile fillies. The way she dominated that stellar field, with the ease that she did it in a time that beat Nyquist the future Kentucky derby winner- it was a look into the future if her brilliance. I'm interested to hear your picks!
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · Coaching Club American Oaks for me. Got challenged and still went on. · 4 minutes ago
Sorry for my english, but i have a question about BC Challenge. CC runs in the Pacific Classic and he won it, so he's now in BC Classic. But now he will run in Awesome Again and this is another race from BC Challenge (Classic), and what in this case if he win it? Another horse just lose the spot in Classic or when one horse win two races the second one in (for example) Awesome Again has the spot? Thanks for answer.
Does Nyquist still belong in the discussion for Horse of the Year?Read More

  • Buckpasser via Disqus · Congrats. I donate to this organization and many other rescues. To me insuring that our horses ALL have a safe retirement is one of the top issues facing the racing industry. I know more people who dislike horse racing because of the stories of horses found in deplorable situations that have won money for their owners only to be discarded. Good luck to you. · 22 hours ago

Da Big Hoss will NOT run in the Melbourne Cup and will stay home for the Breeders Cup Turf. He will likely make his next start in the Canadian International in two weeks at Woodbine.

  • 1JoeP via Disqus · Dissapointing race for Nyquist and Exagerrator in the PA derby. Could be 9 or less running in the BCC. Shaping up to be a 2 horse race between CC and Arrogate. Advantage Chrome. · 1 day ago
  • thesnowleopard via Disqus · As has been the case for the past few years, the Distaff is the better race. · 6 hours ago
This half sister to Goldikova, Galikova, Anodin, and Born Something debuts today. She's in the Prix Ténébreuse at Maisons-Laffitte, Race 4! Several other fillies that look like they could be high class, too.
Connect rallied boldly along the rail to upset the $1,250,000 Pennsylvania Derby (G2) at Parx Racing.Read More

  • sczen50 · Nyquist was only 1/4 LENGTH OUT OF 3RD!! 3RD-4TH-5TH-6TH.... HEAD-HEAD-HEAD...But oh well Connect and The Runner ran fantastically!!!! · 14 hours ago
  • Iwasatthe78Belmont · Can we just admit now that among the colts, this is a really crappy crop of three year olds? Makes me wonder what, if anything, we have to look forward to in the older horse division next year. · 4 hours ago
Pretty amazing maiden debut - Véranda (Canford Cliffs half brother to Viserano) just pipped Natagora's colt, Mankib, by a nose. The entire first 5 home were within a length of each other - Falcon Wings (a Nathaniel half brother to Wedding Ring), Graphite (a Shamardal half brother to Fairly Ransom and Fairly Fair), and African Ride (a Candy Ride half brother to Rafting). The Azamour half brother to Veda was back in 8th. All in all, it was a maiden full of well related and promising colts.
Songbird will turn out to be even better than Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra. I think Songbird is the best filly America has EVER seen!!!!! :-)
Great race, but it absolutely muddies the 3 year old division even further.
  • hoof_hearted2016 · Forget about the male division, there's only 1 SUPERSTAR 3 yr old in the USA, and that's Songbird. She beats all those 3 yr old males EASY!!!! · 5 hours ago
Man I really liked this horse in the Preakness and he just had a terrible day. maybe it was the slop?? But he had another nice race today proving he can be a dirt horse and he is not just a turf horse.
Runhappy blazes 4F in 46 3/5, gallops out in 58 1/5, final work before 2016 debut next week in the Ack Ack. Safe to say, I think he's ready.
  • hoof_hearted2016 · The thing is though, the 'Ack Ack' field will probably be very weak, so anything other that an impressive romp by Runhappy will be classed as a disappointment! I just have reservations about Runhappy, for me, even if he does well in the Ack Ack and wins impressively, I still think the BC Dirt Mile will be way too competitive for him in my opinion. He will likely be facing "Gun Runner", "Dortmund", "American Freedom", "Awesome Slew", and maybe even "Frosted". · 5 hours ago
Gun Runner seems to be really coming into his own! If he hadn't gone so wide today in the Pennsylvania Derby he would have had first for sure! I really like Gun Runner. He is going to be a force to be reckoned with in his 4 year old campaign.
  • Bill Harman via Disqus · That's what I've been telling everyone om HRN..and quite a few say no way he would've won-that Connect would've just dug in harder. I agree that he shouldve--well could've easily anyway~ · 5 hours ago
Two losses in the G3sphere to two of the three best three year olds in the country(IMO anyway) followed by three wins over weak competition. However just look at the winning times of Gun Runner and AF and then the winning times TC has produced. He is not a G1 horse(he barely beat Dalmore) and his connections shouldn't put him higher than lower prestige G2 races. If they do this, he can probably keep winning for awhile.
A nice 'paid workout' for CC, then onto the Classic. Bring it on Arrogate you young 'pretender', California Chrome will show you who's boss!!! :-)
North America’s all-time leading money earner, California Chrome arrived by van at Santa Anita on Sunday at 12 noon as he begins final preparations for next Saturday’s Grade I, $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes, final major steppingstone to the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita Nov. 5.Read More
  • Mary via Disqus · study duty? I know he's smart, but horse college?!? · 13 hours ago
Congrats TX Chrome.
I'd just like to toss something out there, because I haven't seen many others mention it, but... Nyquist didn't run a bad race. He was in a good position and seemed game. He was just coming off of a two month layoff and wasn't the fittest horse on the track. He got some fitness and he'll do better next time, hopefully :)

  • MaryZinke via Disqus · This seems quite reasonable. Nyquist's team needs to quit effingaround with him. Very weird coming from this team. Leaves me not knowing where he fits in now. And the trainer taking the blame for the rides is beyond. · 18 hours ago
  • Horse longevity · True, now how will ONeil capitalize on that? Will he push for every bit of improvement needed so that the Nyquist progression from Penn Derby to BCC looks like Cal Chromes did 2 years ago? · 9 hours ago
