The racing world waits with bated breath for the decision from Team Arrogate on where the champion will race next.Read More
He should have a date with Zenyatta, maybe he's the answer?
After more than two days of wagering during which it ranked as low as the fifth choice of bettors across North America, the always-popular “All Others” (#24) wagering interest closed strongly on Sunday’s final day of wagering to emerge as the narrow 5-1 favorite in the third of four pools of Churchi...Read More
  • 1JoeP via Disqus · I bet Always Dreaming in kdfw3 at 42-1. I really like this colt and I believe he will upset McCracken in the TB Derby. · 2 hours ago
Looking forward to Always Dreaming running a big race in the TB Derby. He will have the tactical advantage on McCracken and I think he will pull the upset. I bet him in kdfw3 at 42-1.
The nominations are out now, and the list includes Midnight Storm, Accelerate, Arrogate, Hard Aces, Noble Bird, Imperative, Hoppertunity, Keen Ice, Mor Spirit, Neolithic, Shaman Ghost, Texas Ryano, Papacoolpapacool, Point Piper, and Prospect Park. There are others, but they aren't as recognizable.
This race looks on track to have a bad field. I'm honestly concerned about this race getting demoted to G2 because it's clear the committee doesn't give a damm about tradition, the creation of the Pegasus and the purse cut really is not a good combo.

  • Iwasatthe78Belmont · Even $2 million purse will pale in relation to the DWC. The best way to keep this a Grade 1 is to move it to May. And NYRA has seen a number of famous races with great histories downgraded - Wood Memorial, Brooklyn, Suburban come to mind. Although the Whitney has upgraded. · 3 days ago

Has anyone been able to find this race on YouTube? Its not showing up when searching it nor or some of the others from the Fairgrounds yesterday.
Made You Look was strong down the stretch in the Dania Beach. Couple that with Unbridled's Song on his second generation dam side I believe he will do well on dirt.
Does anyone know why this race and others from the fairgrounds yesterday are not showing up on YouTube after a full day after?
Is Hansen or Creative Cause good enough to be considered one of the best gray thoroughbreds? If so, they would have to be better than some of the greatest horses of all time. Read More

  • Byrnzzz · Valadorna will fight another day, Farrell is really good. She's a half sister to G1 winners JB's Thunder and Carpe Diem, so she's got Grade one in her blood. · 15 hours ago
  • Capper · Not giving up on Valadorna just yet. Farrell had everything her own way. Unique Bella will be tough to stop, but with more pace in the KY Oaks Valadorna can easily complete the exacta. · 4 hours ago
Girvin became the first Kentucky Derby contender to grab a 50 point victory when he got a perfect trip to win the Risen Star.Read More

Someone should write a poem about Arrogate. This is my terrible haiku: When he runs he wins The others are left behind. He breaks the records
Be good to see him at 1m4f
23:1 is a steal on her for the Oaks futures. Even paying 28:1 on the bottom of a Unique Bella exacta.
Trainer John Moore confirms plans to the HKJC web-site that after keeping his perfect record over 2000 meters at Sha Tin in tact with a win in the G1 Hong Kong Gold Cup that Werther will next tackle the 1800 meters at Meydan in the G1 Dubai Turf on world cup night 2017.
Will sonbird race in March?
The horses that ran behind American Pharoah Derby: Firing Line Dortmund Frosted Danzig Moon Preakness: Tale of Verve Divining Rod Dortmund Mr Z Belmont: Frosted Keen Ice Mubtaahij Breeders Cup Effinex Honor Code Keen Ice. Not a fan of the horses who ran behind him and Equibase gave him a best of only 119. Also he got some candy leads. What I did like was he won three of the races big.

Remove this from your comment now before people start posting about the dirt horse who had the top equibase speed figure in 2015!!! By the way do you know which dirt horses with the top 3 equibase speed figures in 2015? (hint: they are in the 126-127 range). · 2 days ago
