  • cugel the clever · Unless, God forbid, he's injured, this will be nothing more than a highly paid bullet workout for AP. If AP could easily beat the absolute best 3yo's in the TC races, what makes anyone think that he won't do the same when all of the best next-tier 3yo's are either on the shelf or racing elsewhere (Frosted, Texas Red, Dortmund, Firing Line, Carpe Diem)? · 10 hours ago
  • cugel the clever · LOL - laughable hypocrisy coming from Monmouth officials and Zayat : "we did this to honor the horse, American Pharoah.” NO, you did it to attract the most talented and beloved horse since Zenyatta to your track, and to therefore make an enormous profit from increased betting, attendance, and associated sales. “The Haskell is special to us. We love Monmouth. I want everyone to have the greatest day on Sunday.” NO, you did it because Monmouth offered you a wheelbarrow full of extra purse money to come to Monmouth and win without breaking a sweat against non-entities instead of running for less money against a much tougher field at Saratoga. It's obvious that this purse increase was not a last minute decision. It's been in negotiation between Monmouth and Zayat ever since AP won the Belmont. Nothing wrong with that... it's a sound financial business decision by both sides and both will benefit at the expense of horse race fans who would like to see another match between AP and the next best 3yo's. But please don't tell lies just to make you seem like good guys. You sound like politicians. · 10 hours ago

Nathan, keep a close eye on him at the Spa today and all weekend. Looks like he is loaded for some serious damage. Obvious horses today....Alma Maters of Indy Colts last 2 QBs'(and future Hall of Famers). Stanford and Tennessee. In the 5th he is there with 2 good ones. Second Timer Gangster ,just may be anything. Hopefully today is the day at big balloons. Finally to close out the day,Old Pal the Mountain Climber in the 9th.
Frosted, Texas Red and Frammento. If Texas Red runs anywhere near Frosted we're going to hear how great his second place finish was and how much progress he's made.
John Sadler tells DRF's Steve Andersen that G1 winner Stellar Wind will have a six-furlong turf workout at Del Mar on Sunday morning that will determine the next start for the Grade 1winner Stellar Wind. The options are the G1 Del Mar Oaks or possibly shipping east for her next start. Sadler says he will make a decision after the work. Article on DRF

Six days in the books, and John Velazquez already has three wins awarded to him, by DQ. With that kind of luck, he should be the runaway winner of the jockey title.
I never realized what a small thing an amino acid 998 is, until 3 years ago!!!
We are grateful, humbled, and more than a little overwhelmed to announce that our little racing website has reached 200,000 Facebook fans as of yesterday!Read More
