  • jockey2be. · Wow,I cried.Thats exactly how I feel about my special boy,Wildcat Red.Never stop writing,that said what I could never put into words perfectly! · 8 hours ago
  • AndyScoggin · I love your lede, Averie, "Nearly every racing fan has that one special horse they will hold in their heart forever." That is so true. See you at Belmont, Saturday. · 1 hour ago
I love this blog because it is user friendly with appreciative information pancake air compressor
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.
The chase for the 3yo male championship is now as wide open as it has been since before the Kentucky Derby.Read More

  • 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. · 6 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! · 6 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!

  • Eva Johannsen via Disqus · Hopefully she will remain a bit off the radar and we will get good odds. I am of the opinion that she can run right up there with the best. I don't think they have come close to getting to the bottom of her. · 8 hours ago
If all goes well this week, will arrive at Keeneland Sunday, to prepare for Alcibiades. Wish her luck and safe trip!

  • Anne Shaw · Well we surely do wish the best for her. Watched videos of her last races. Be watching when she races. She seems like a fun fast filly and she's very pretty too. GL to all of you! · 10 hours ago
I just wonder about the distance? I think she can win at both (shes done it before ) I mean don't you in at distance you qualifie at ? ? ? I need to find out. jlp
  • Goblin · If she doesn't run in a "win and you're in" race, she will have to be chosen by panel, since she doesn't have any BC points either. The panel appears to have the power to create its own criteria for each division. So, it doesn't look as though she is limited to a certain distance per se. The BH article says she is going to the Distaff even though they are putting her in the LA Woman as a "prep". I'll link the "How It Works" page for BC qualifications here again. You can see that the panel has a good deal of discretionary power, especially if a given race is not over-subscribed. http://www.breederscup.com/races/how-it-works · 10 hours ago
Look Shared Belief can win the awesome again, classic, and clark and still has no shot at 3 year old honors end of story
  • TIM KUHN via Disqus · agreed, CC with 3 big wins is 3yr old Champ · 11 hours ago
  • Northport · If Chrome doesn't bounce back from his Penn Derby 6th place and Shared Belief wins the Awesome Again and Classic, SB will absolutely take 3 y/o honours. Eclipse voters have a very short memory, a horse that flashes brilliance at the end of the season can (and often do) trump the accomplishments of those made earlier in the season. Just ask Orb, Game on Dude, Princess of Sylmar, etc. · 11 hours ago

I hate to say, no disrespect to Shared Belief, he's awesome, but with CC's loss today, this puts Shared Belief in the drivers seat to win champion three year old and HOTY, if he wins the Awesome Again and BCC, the awards are his, Jim Rome and connections saw the PA Derby and had a huge smile on there faces when they saw CC lose. Now this might be Shared Belief division to lose.
  • ruffianlover · SB has to win both the AA and the Classic to take HOTY · 2 days ago
  • TIM KUHN via Disqus · HOTY yes, but champion 3 yr old is CC, Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Santa Anita Derby, enough said · 12 hours ago
