What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

With the thunder storms predicted all day The Haskell will be interesting with the addition of Exaggerator (Mud Runner) against Gun Runner and Nyquist. Monmouth is known for its fast track and short stretch (990 feet).Mud Runner will have to stay close to the leaders and make his famous stretch run to catch Gun Runner and Nyquist. It will be Gun Runner and Mud Runner at the wire
I always liked Gun Runner first for his breeding, Candy Ride, Quiet Giant (Giant Causeway) and the Fappiano line in both the Sire and Dam sides. He had trouble changing leads in the past, but in the Matt Winn he broke the track record for that race. The Haskell will be a great race now that Exaggerator (Mud Runner) is entered and thunder storm are predicted all day Sunday. Go Gun Runner
Our Joesphina, dam of G1 winner Dortmund, will bred be bred to Malibu Moon today at Spendthrift Farm. According to DRF

Mohaymen/Destin exacta in the Jim Dandy!
Did not see that coming. Totally thought he'd go to the Jim dandy. Very confusing as Keith said he has not been training well and he can't figure out why yet let's send him again Nyquist and gun runner instead of the Jim dandy where I thought he had a great shot to win it

  • bronzeprincess33 · If this race comes up sloppy (or even if it doesn't, really), and he loses to Nyquist, then he can pretty much kiss the Eclipse Award goodbye. They're taking a big risk here, and I'm not sure it'll pay off. · 2 days ago

Tomorrow’s Grade 2 Jim Dandy looks to be a battle of the greys with Belmont champion Creator and runner-up Destin taking another stab at each other. Multiple Grade 2 winner Mohaymen is throwing his hat into the ring as well. Read More

  • MaryZinke via Disqus · The 6 Queen Scheherazade adds blinkers. Needed the last race, prob. Just watched a girl she ran with a while ago get a win at Saratoga. Looks like they are seeing how versatile the 10 CC(good song) is, and why not with a City Zip. Also like 3 Out Of The Ordinary who is already pretty good on turf. 6,3,10,1 GL · 4 hours ago
In a battle of two promising Chad Brown stablemates, it was Connect, a son of Curlin, who turned away Gift Box to win the race named after his sire, by a determined length.Read More
4th race at Del Mar saw 2yr.old filly With Honors (Warfront),win in her first start impressively,on the Jimmy Durante turf. Keith Desormeaux is the trainer,and it's rare he has a first time out winner on the grass. So,there's good reason to be optimistic about her.
Gotta love the logic I'm reading here that Dortmund's first race as a 4yo off 8 months coming back from hoof injuries and making his first start of the year was 'his best race'. First it's Chrome beats Dortmund easily by open lengths then when Dortmund almost wins it's because of 5lbs and because Chrome ran a path out from Dortmund and now it's 'that was Dortmund's best race' and that Baffert had him %100 while Chrome was only %80 even though Chrome has been in training far longer this year than Dortmund has. Let's ignore that Chrome ran the race of his life in the DWC and then was able to get back in training only 6 weeks later. No physical setbacks, hasn't missed a beat. The year has gone as well as it could for Chrome while Dortmund has had many set backs. Dortmund is clearly getting faster as he matures and gets older. His speed figures have been rising with each start since he came back later in his 3yo year. No reason he does not continue to improve with more starts and maturity as he's been doing.
  • By The Numbers via Disqus · I love "chromie" logic. If you go to B-H's article on the entries/PP's of the San Diego, 99% of the comments by Chrome supporters were to the tune of "Dortmund has no place here" "Chrome in a romp" etc. But now that Dortmund eyeballs their champion and came a just a long neck short of victory - well this was Dortmund's best chance to beat Chrome. Or my favorite, "Chrome wasn't even in top gear". Like WHAT?!?!? It was a photo finish, of course he was in top gear. Dortmund will improve many many lengths next out. If you watch the replay, Gary was already hard riding Dortmund approaching the 3/4's - Dortmund has the ability to run the straight with Chrome on heart alone. Next time when he isn't coming off 8 months, he won't be running the stretch on just heart and Chrome will be no match · 3 days ago
  • richard jaimungal via Disqus · Cc 113 in the classic was his best numbers ..but remember what AS said..he wish that he had one more week to tighten him up a bit..he will run faster..and there is the possability that Dortmund could bounce from running so hard in his first race back..but then again..who knows.. · 3 hours ago

duelazo, muchachos, si se da this match
Connect won; Gift Box second! Time was 1:48.69. Nicely done by Chad Brown's starters!
Great Race!! On to the Travers now let's get this next one
Per the Bloodhorse Mark Casse said Tepin will not run in the Fourstardave and may be pointed for the Ballston Spa instead. It is not definite as the Woodbine Mile is still her main objective but a possible matchup against the returning Lady Eli would be one of the highlights of the meet.
Mark Casse announced today that Tepin will pass the Fourstardave and may be pointed to the Ballston Spa on August 27 instead. That would be a matchup against Lady Eli as Chad Brown has said that will be Lady Eli's comeback race. Casse stated thet the Woodbine Mile is still the major target for Tepin but the Ballston Spa may be used as a prep.
YESS!! Connect wins!! Another Stakes winner for Curlin, gamely holds off Gift Box. A son of Curlin wins the Curlin Stakes. NICE!!
Sensational effort in a very good time on a demanding surface.
How great is it that Curlin is trending nationally on twitter.
