What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

This isn’t a race we’re going to be sprinting to the windows to play. Five Palms has been away for over a year, but he won two of his first three and wins the paper race off his victory over bottom-level Allowance foes. He shows a solid work tab and will get the HF 15a. Pulling G’s and Solid Wager b...Read More
Hopefully MPE can run his best race in the Florida Derby. It is tough to fire fist out. American Pharoah did it in a soft field in the Rebel Stakes. Good luck.

  • jinlie01 · Can't see any horse beating Upstart unless he veers out again. · 2 hours ago
  • Deano · The fact that everyone is picking Upstart, It's a Knockout, and Materiality in their top 3, means that someone may upset the applecart. Most likely the top 3 will be just that, but they still have to run the race. · 14 minutes ago

Charming Thought, the only Group 1 winner for Godolphin in Britain in 2014, has suffered a setback and will miss the 2,000 Guineas. His next possible targets could be the St James's Palace or Commonwealth Cup, both G1s at Royal Ascot
Morton Fink's two-time Horse of the Year Wise Dan is progressing well since he returned to tack-walking at Keeneland at the beginning of March, but the chestnut gelding will require 30 more days in recovery before he can go to the track, trainer Charlie LoPresti said March 26. A March 24 check-up with Dr. Larry Bramlage at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital near Lexington revealed that the non-displaced fracture at the bottom of the cannon bone in Wise Dan's right front fetlock, announced last Oct. 13, is healing well. Bloodflow to the area, which had diminished while the 8-year-old Wiseman's Ferry runner was turned out over the winter at LoPresti's Forest Lane Farm, has reactivated since Wise Dan began walking the shedrow at Keeneland with Amy LoPresti aboard.

  • amdaman via Disqus · Mr. Z is a class above this field. International Star and War Story will be fighting for the place spot; perhaps it's War Story's turn. Keen Ice may get fourth if there's enough pace to run at, but Stanford may hold on to that spot. · 1 hour ago
  • tmallios1 · I am looking at Stanford in this race. In a race that is jam packed with speed,Stanford will not be part of that scenerio as many anticipate.He has already gone the distance of ground at GP,and around 2 turns. His best races as a Sprinter are when he comes off the pace a bit. The only reason he went to the front in his last ,was the lack of another speed. He did not lose that race,he was beaten by a Superior horse. Drawing the rail,he will be closest to the pace and get first run on the far turn. I doubt that any of these can outsprint him to the wire. · 1 hour ago
Beholder, the two-time champion, is on schedule for a springtime comeback. She worked six furlongs in 1:12.40 on Thursday, continuing a steady pattern of workouts since mid-February. Trainer Richard Mandella said the $1 million Ogden Phipps Stakes at Belmont Park on June 6 is a long-range goal for Beholder, the champion 2-year-old filly of 2012 and champion 3-year-old filly of 2013. Beholder has not raced since winning the G1 Zenyatta Stakes last September. The G1 Madison at Keeneland could be her 2015 debut, but it's not 100%. According to DRF
  • cedar · Keeneland released the probables for their spring meet stakes and I didn't see Beholder's name listed. Other sources still say she's aiming for the Madison. Hopefully these other sources are true so I can finally see her in person! · 1 hour ago

  • tmallios via Disqus · Encryption will stalk the Commish all around the track. When the Running starts on the far turn. The Commissioners concern will be to hold off the oncoming field for 2nd. Encryption will be by him in a flash. Maybe even taking his picture ,before the others finish up the race. That is how easy this one will be for Breen / Paco combo · 2 hours ago

Bayern, winner of the BC Classic on Nov. 1 in his last start, worked six furlongs in 1:13.40 on Thursday, his longest workout of the year. Bayern was plagued with foot problems earlier this year, but has worked steadily in recent weeks. Trainer Bob Baffert has not stated a race goal for Bayern, but the continued progression in workout distances suggest that a race in April could be possible. Two options would be the $600,000 Oaklawn Handicap on April 11 or the $1.5 million Charles Town Classic in West Virginia on April 18. According to DRF

Southern Equine Stables’ homebred Grade I winner Moreno makes the second start of his 5-year-old campaign on Saturday as the expected favorite of nine entrants in the Grade II $400,000 New Orleans Handicap at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots. Over 1 1/8 miles on the main track, the New Orleans was w...Read More

  • tmallios via Disqus · On the surface,one would have to assume that Moreno is coming into this race in probably close to the best possible shape he can be. The reason is his trainer Guillot. He is a Cajun, and is bringing his Pride and Joy back home. I seriously doubt that "The Mouth of the South" would want to embarrass himself,in front of the local folks. That being said and looking at the dimensions of the race. This field does not bode well for Moreno. There are about 3 to 4 other horses that have the quality speed to make things difficult for him. Just how much Mr. Guillot fills the tank and wants to win. · 6 hours ago
  • travel_vic · track configuration and inherent running style bias can significantly BLUNT a good horse's chances. Have not seen the past performances for comparative sake as of yet. but as tough as Moreno is up front, that long stretch will negate a good bit of that advantage unless he is all alone at the top of the lane. · 5 hours ago

POST TIME 6:30 PM EDT – The 6th race at Santa Anita today casts 8 horses in a sprint affair staged for a 7-furlong battle.  What makes this a very interesting race is that the pace and pace pressure both project to be quite soft.  That makes #5 Raised a Secret a very dangerous prospect an...Read More
