What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Until they are IN THE GATE, in a race, one has no idea, really what you have. Friend had one that almost killed itself as a baby with a head wound, and ran it in a MdCLm and it won by 10....Won the biggest race on the grounds by season's end.

Zenyatta, Rapid Redux, Paynter, and Mucho Macho Man. In only four years of existence the Secretariat Vox Populi Award has done a marvelous job of reflecting the collective heartbeat of racing fans from coast to coast. The Vox Populi, or Voice of the People, was the brainchild of Penny Chenery. Secre...Read More

  • ruffianzenyatta · In my belief, it would be a crime if a horse other than California Chrome took this award. California Chrome captured the minds and imaginations of not only hardcore racing fans, but the general public as well. California Chrome was brilliant in the Triple Crown scores, and a strong ambassador for horse racing alike. Who couldn't feel inspired by this underdog horse with a $2,000 stud and a small farm background? California Chrome is simply the most popular, most influential horse of the season. · 7 minutes ago

  • Exterminator · Wise Dan has been such a wonderful gelding. He just won't lose. People say he's slowing down, but he has won his last 4 (3 G1s) and was 1/5 off the track record though he carried 12 lbs more than Fourstardave did when he set the mark. The margins have been slimmer, but Dan always fires and when on grass always wins. (Last loss on the grass was the 2011 Shadwell) · 7 hours ago
  • Quilla via Disqus · Nice writing, Mary. My heroes have always been horses and I'm betting some folks reading this will recall another inspiration - "Once upon a time there was a horse named Kelso. But only once." And now there's Wise Dan. :) · 1 hour ago
Congrats! Happy for Christopher Clement. A beautiful race and wonderful effort by Irish Mission with Johnny V aboard. That was a nice win.
Talk about over rated.
This horse MUST run in the BC Dirt Mile, a race he would have a genuine chance of winning, with his strong front running style, and he will last the trip well. DON'T run him in the BC Classic, that is a race he has NO CHANCE of winning!

I just want to ask him how tall Itsmyluckyday is. Because he doesn't seem like a very big horse.
This Cat may surprise Saratoga race fans in a big way today in the GI Hopeful stakes. He is so..ssssso Fast like his dad Discreet Cat and he's got Cover blood in him from AP-indy so he may get away early and handle the 7 panels in very tough today with " I SPENT It" and "COMPETITIVE EDGE" but this mad man Guillot will have him ready to break the gate today like "MORENO" so beware.

  • Latigo Pate via Disqus · Excellent article. I found especially interesting your comments on vibration and a shoe's resonance. I am a horse owner and trainer AND vibration analyst. I can't believe it never occurred to me the horse's legs act as a damping device to the shoe's vibration. Thank you for the insight and I look forward to future articles on this subject. · 20 hours ago

The ML 9/2 would be a great price on PZone... is there an 'appearance bonus' for the Vosburgh winner's connections???
Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has put together three different winning streaks in the Del Mar Futurity. He won seven straight from 1996 to 2002, then produced back-to-back wins in 2008-2009 and 2011-12.Read More
