  • tmallios via Disqus · Taking nothing away fro Bayern. The race was over well before the horses stepped on the track. Did you pay attention to how the track was playing today. Speed was dominant,Quality speed was unbeatable. · 10 minutes ago
Curlino obviously well meant, broke slow and didn't run a lick. Having Mark Casse for a trainer the poor horse is doomed for failure. Trainer has never had anything in the States. Stick to mopping up at Woodbine, Mark.

Bouncing back after a loss in the Haskell, Untapable proved once again that she is the mistress of her domain with a one-length victory over Sweet Reason in the $1 million Cotillion. Read More
  • ruffianlover · Today she wrapped up Three Year Old Filly Eclipse. But with Shared Belief and Wise Dan missing part of the year, and California Chrome questionable (after his effort today) if he will return to his old form- if she wins the Distaff over CH and Beholder- she should most certainly be in serious contention for HOTY. If she wins the Distaff over the on fire Close Hatches, and the veteran two time champ Beholder, she would then have six graded stake wins for 2014- four of them being grade 1's. I believe if she won the Distaff it would take Wise Dan winning the Mile, and either SB or CC winning the Classic to beat her for HOTY. Besides the loss in the Haskell being her only tarnish on her record (and I hardly think it was even a disgraceful performance), she has been stellar in 2014. And I think she would earn votes since she is the only top female to even attempt taking a stab at the boys- and it wasn't like she finished last like Ria Antonia. Just my opinion after the retirement of Game On Dude, Palace Malice, and WTC not having as good of a year as last year. · 3 hours ago
  • AndyScoggin · A truly impressive performance by Untapable. On a speed favoring track, she sat close to the pacesetters and then took charge down the stretch. Congratulations champ. · 15 minutes ago
Emerald Downs website said she reached Santa Anita safely Wed., Sept 17. Now we just wait and see.
He would have a better record, Allen. The greats of the past carried weight. Forego carried more than 135 pounds nine times. Damascus ran in six consecutive races with 130 to 134 pounds. Seabiscuit carried 130+ thirteen times. Dr. Fager carried more than 130 in his last eight races, with the last outing at 139. Sister Ta Wee carried 142 in her last race. Then there is Kelso, who carried 130 or more in twenty four contests. These days weight variances are nowhere near what they used to be. Ta Wee carried 29 more than Hasty Hitter in her last Interborough. You saw Secretariat win the Belmont. What were other memorable races?
In todays race Bayer set a track record and his time at the mile split was 134.71, Bebbie ran the mile in 134.2, My piont is she can run at this level. This was the boys !!!! jlp
Who would be a good match for her? Hard Spun is doing well, maybe even Super Saver, or Distorted Humor

  • AmbitiousD · Very nice analysis, Sullivan. What are your thoughts on Gio Ponti or Animal Kingdom? · 4 hours ago
  • Sullivan · In considering matches for her I would tend to lean to faster horses with Mr. Prospector's influence. Speightstown is one who I am sure would be good with her, but I did not try due to his stud fee. · 53 minutes ago
Nathan at least it is good to know that Boots confidence and how good this guy was early in his career came true. But to all the HOTY experts that said if SB beat CC ,he was worthy of The HOTY Honor. What happens if this guy wins his next BC race and The Classic is won by an upset. Using your logic then, Bayern is HOTY.

  • tmallios via Disqus · Southern Humor ,the one thing you said that is right. This game is all about dancing dollar signs. If not about that,do you honestly think i would waste my time rooting for a race horse to win for the sake of winning. Unless a friend owns and trains them,i could be doing alot of better things with my time. To those that enjoy the rooting aspect,all the power to them. Do exactly what you enjoy and gives you pleasure. To me it is a waste of my time. Someone asked me that if i were not allowed to partake in the pari mutual side of the sport. How much less would i follow it. About 95%. As far as boots is concerned.He may be my made up friend,but only the shadow will know. Glad to see you are still miserable and jealous. · 2 hours ago

Good race big girl, you looked very good in the sloppe. Another stakes winner for Curlin. jlp
B S when a horse is boxed they climb and/or the rider steadies. NO where did that happen. The narrative fallacy yet again.
 Race #1 at LRC is a competitive match with nine runners who appear to be equally matched.  However, the favorite #4 Counting Days (2/1) is vulnerable due to third start off a layoff with hard last races.  The race sets up for a stalker, #9 Fly Blue (5/1) coming to form with productiv...Read More

Rider STALKED The pace in an ideal position tracking the pace of race like any journeyman would do. When he pressed the gas there was no one home. NOTHAING about his trip took away his chances NOT A THING.
YOOO!!!! If Shared Belief and CC lose there remaining races, and this gal wins her next two, she could steal the HOTY title, she has three G1's and if she wins the Spinster and the BC Distaff, she will have 5 G1's this year, now that deserves HOTY
  • ruffianlover · Most certainly. And opposite- if she loses and Untapable wins the Distaff- HOTY could go to her as well. So many options · 3 hours ago

what happens if VE Day wins the JCGC and the Classic, hhhhhhmmmmmm!!!!
i too think souper colossel can be a good 3 yr old
Dumbass stables got greedy and did not prep Chrome + Jock kept him in a box until the top of the lane = no Horse of the Year. But how can you keep saying he has done more than Shared Belief ? SB already has BEAT older horses in a Grade 1 race. Bayern will not go 1 1/4 against top older horses. We will see next week.

  • Mary Z. · 9 Size. Have to toss out the Alabama. Hopefully, she doesn't drop off sharp at 6f, but I think she'll have a good lead on these girls. 10 Aqua Regia. This is my stakes quality bull-ringer, since she liked the AQU inner track. 7 Saintly Joan. This little girl has rarely caught a fast dirt track and when she does, someone throws her in a graded stakes. This distance, dry dirt, she may love it. 8 Kiss To Remember. That race 3 back seems nice enough to win this, but I don't know who she faced. Think she may be turfy, but doesn't look like dirt is a problem for her. Love the name. Hard to resist. This is leaving out obvious favorite, the 2. She has been putting in huge-normous efforts. Easier spot today, but Charlestown can be evil. GL · 2 hours ago ·
