What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Two weeks from the Kentucky Derby, the Dark Horse took a deep dive into some Kentucky Derby data to see if there are any historical trends which might help on Derby day!Read More
  • Casey Laughter via Disqus · American Pharoah is a ridgling, so he should be on your list. But some great facts!!!! · 55 minutes ago
He'll learn :) this experience helps to Coz's connections to know what the best for him. Love CoZmic One!
Ralph Evans’ Triple Crown contender Upstart returned to the work tab Friday morning at Gulfstream’s satellite training facility Palm Meadows, opening eyes with a 4-furlong breeze that was timed in 47.40 seconds.Read More

One swallow doesn't make a summer. One race doesn't say that the horse is bad. He will be a deserving Prince.

is AP considred a big horse
  • slewof damascus via Disqus · no - but he's not small, either. He's well put together. In people terms, he's like 5'11 maybe 6' foot. Toned. Goes to the gym everyday. Has a trainer. Plays sports. · 5 hours ago

  • melann · he wasn't that far behind the field. People act like he finished way back. He did make up some and caught the field!! · 6 hours ago
I watched the race. He ran much like his mother. He did catch up but then didn't seem to know what to do, he didn't seem tired. I wouldn't count him out yet. I think he just needs more experience. I doubt seriously if the Mosses would ever consider gelding him.
  • amdaman via Disqus · Doing it now would be premature, but if after a while he shows he's not stallion material, and gelding him could make him a better racehorse, why wouldn't they geld him? · 6 hours ago
A few more performances like today's and Cozmic One will become a gelding
  • Mike Relva via Disqus · No way that happens. · 9 hours ago
  • melann · I really doubt that. With his pedigree he would make an awesome stud! · 6 hours ago
As I said "he'll get smoked." Heard there is a maiden race in Montana July 4th they might try.

at least a horse this large will make a lot of glue

Bob Baffert is 0-for-5 with a Kentucky Derby favorite ... will 2015 be different?Read More
  • Show All 4 Comments
  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · Bryan : Point Given was sure a heartbreaker to Baffert that's for sure . To many others as well as im sure many of us had this fine looking colt 1st 2nd 3rd on our tickets . I do understand why American Pharoah is such a hot topic about could this become number 6 for Baffert not to win ! Yes , I do understand clearly . Its crystal clear what could happen by AP not winning . But then again Bryan : LETS PRETEND for a moment . . . Lets say you was selected in a drawing to where Yourself could win 1 Million Dollars , and all you had to do is ( Select 1 Colt ) that will be the Derby winner , for 1 Million Dollars : honestly - whom would you really pick ! The pick really starts to narrow down to less than a handful huh . American Pharoah or Carpe Diem in my opinion would be what I think would become the highest % from horsemen that have a career with the thoroughbreds . Yes Bryan : Baffert is 0 for 5 with favorites in the Run for the Roses : but what a blessing it is to be in that situation knowing you have that good of colts year in , year out . I enjoy your articles . Baffert and Barns both know we have only seen 80% of what AP has to offer : that come May 2 we will see the real American Pharoah , a colt that Baffert has been talking about ( even before ) his debut at Del Mar . Bryan : after May 2 , I really think you will be writing something totally different next Derby time . As always , a pleasure reading your articles · 9 hours ago
  • slewof damascus via Disqus · I wouldn't be surprised if Baffert won more Derbies than anyone by the time he walks off into the sunset and over more decades (at least 4). He gets the horses and knows what to do with them. I would love to see Lukas win one more for old time's sake. · 7 hours ago
Cozmic One, the first foal of Champion Zenyatta, came home last in his long awaited debut in the second race at Santa Anita.Read More

  • rubyangel via Disqus · Well, sometimes the kids don't have the abilities of their legendary parents. I'm glad everybody came home safe. · 11 hours ago
  • Crystal Harrison via Disqus · Let's none of us forget that Zenyatta did not start her racing career till well into her third year, November 22, 2007 because she was not mentally ready. Of course, there was no real pressure to run her before she was ready as she as not famous. It appears that Coz has inherited quite a lot from his Mom and I bet he is going to be one dynamite race horse. I wonder if the team was feeling the pressure to race him, subconsciously, just because of who he was. I say subconsciously because it would not have been an actual game plan. Anyway, he has his first race behind him now, always a HUGE hurdle in any horse's life. The first race result does not determine a racing career. I will continue to cheer Coz on. Next year, we will be going through this again with Ziconic. Pretty soon we will be having Jess's Dream's debut I imagine as well. I read somewhere that he will be shipping to Belmont soon. Maybe he and Coz will work out together as Coz will be going there as well. Exciting times ahead I imagine... · 7 hours ago
