What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Stop all of you with the excuses. Fact. AP is a TC winner and a great horse. All the he is tired crap is baloney. Let me break it down for you. The colt didn't get started until March. He has toyed with the fields under hand rides. He rested after the TC and has raced once prior to the travers doing awesome. His team has been happy and smiles saying how well he travels. In fact everyone was all smiles going into the race. The grave yard of champions excuse has always loomed large Keen ice has raced light out since January just trying to be part of the equation. Talk about a horse that should be tired. Yesterday was a great race and to lose by a length is nothing to diminish the colt but it is disrespectful to not acknowledge a hard fought win by keen ice. In fact any of the three were deserving of the wins. Stop the Bull""""" It was a great race run by the top three Ap got beat by the one two punch that forced him to never really get a breather. That's horse racing
Congratulations to Keen Ice. He keeps getting better.
Saturday’s Saratoga Travers Day Recap: August 29 Javier Castellano and John Velazquez both guided home three winners. Todd Pletcher saddled two winners. Saturday’s suggested Late Pick 4 tickets from Saratoga yielded two Primary winners (Flintshire, Dacita) and one Secondary winner (Foxhall Drive). I...Read More
And who are you Mr. Kennedy to tell every one to stop the Bull. If that race was ran again today the outcome could be different. People like you get me. You think your the one that knows more than any one. The fact is that a great horse got beat yesterday and you can think what you want but you can't tell any one that Keen Ice is a better horse and he hasn't been lights out. he has won only one race before yesterday. You should get off your high horse and understand that we are feeling bad about Him loosing and if we want to talk about it that's up to us Mr. Big Stuff. We will say what we want and if you want to be a jerk that's up to you. I am a great fan of AP but do I think he the best horse racing right now? No maybe not. I think there s a good chance he will get beat in the BC, Beholder might very well get him, personally I don't think he should be racing at all. Maybe you should back off and let people express there thoughts with out any smart remarks.
Runhappy and veteran rider Edgar Prado dominated from start-to-finish, finishing seven-eights of a mile in a dazzling time of 1:20.54.Read More

  • TheyCANswim! via Disqus · Yes!!! I am thrilled for the Runhappy connection's graded debut- congratulations!! Am only surprised that he did not go off at higher odds. Anyone following this horse closely would have fully expected him to hit the board, if not win (as I did). Looking forward to seeing more 'happy' graded running from this special equine. Go Runhappy!!! · 16 hours ago

A Grade 1 race like Saratoga’s prestigious Forego is not supposed to be this easy, but no one told that to the six-year-old gelding Private Zone. Read More

BREAKING NEWS : American Pharoah has come out of the Travers in good shape. Ahmed Zayat tells DRF'S Jay Privman On Sat night that he was "60-40" towards retirement, but wanted to talk to Baffert, etc. Also, Zayat said if Pharoah were to run in BC, and was to prep beforehand, his ideal spot would be at Churchill Downs , then remain in Ky for Breeders Cup. According to DRF
A good race by Keen Ice. After running behind AP all year, it was nice to see Keen Ice win. Good race by AP and Frosted as well.
Keen Ice, winner of the G1 Travers Stakes yesterday, came out of the race in good shape and he ships back to KY on Monday on same flight that takes American Pharoah back to So California . Trainer Dale Romans tells DRF'S David Grening that he is calling Keen Ice ' s victory the best of his training career and says he is very proud with the strides KI has made over the year. Romans says Keen Ice will likely trains up to Classic for his next start. According to DRF

  • VEGASJIM1952 · It is not how he got beat, it is who beat him. Keen Ice who was still eligible for a non winner of 2, which means he has 1 win in his glorious career. AP beat up on a bad group of 3 year olds and you made him a super horse. His BS Beyer numbers were a joke. Final time compared to the numbers he was getting were way off. Now credit him for his winning the races but in this race we saw him pressured and set up for a closer. With a 48 and change half mile he should have been long gone. Sounds a lot like what happens to Bayern when he doesn't get his own way. I was happy he finally broke the Triple Crown jinx but I never thought for one minute he was in the Super horse zone. Do not be surprised if he is retired now because another loss will only hurt his, as Zayat said "his legacy". AP was great for racing but he is far from the greats in the sport. · 9 hours ago
Nun The Less wins the 2015 Mystic Lake Derby champion.
Nun The Less is the 2015 Mystic Lake Derby under a well-timed ride by Florent Geroux.
It's a small track in western Kentucky. It served as home base for trainer Larry Jones and owner Mike Pegram. Boston Harbor and Groupie Doll were a
Why is it that after one defeat by a one length after 8 wins everyone is crying out how much of a nobody he is? People seem to be forgetting that the almighty Secretariat lost the Whitney to a horse named Onion...he also lost the Woodward! Big Red is really staring to get on my nerves, because all I hear is "Oh nobody will ever be as good as him" "World's best horse ever" etc... Please stop boasting about how weak and horrible this crop is, because its really not! Just because a crop has an amount of "weak" runners in it, and just because a crop isn't a "speedy" one, doesn't mean it's a horrible one. We waited basically 4 DECADES for a Triple Crown winner to come, 13 since 1978 have tried and failed, and when we get one we hear "Oh it's just because this is a horrible crop. He'll never be a racing great." So tired of it, as I'm sure many others are.
AP is a great race horse but the last month has been hard on him from flying bach and forth across the country not sure where to race him and not giving him time to recover from his last race. But I think the owner and trainer have failed to manage the intangibles. However, I believe a horse needs superior genetics to be able to reach the highest level but he also needs the intangibles stacked in his favor and not against him
Personal Ensign winner Sheer Drama has come out of the race in good shape and is already on her way back to Florida where she will train up to BC Distaff, per trainer David Fawkes. According to DRF
Iselin Gr 3, r 10 Monmouth, 8/30/15. 6 entered, all early. 1 Matrooh, 2 Valid, 3 Anchor Down, 4 Albano, 5 Bradester, 6 Matterhorn. 1 Matrooh, been looking forward to watching him race in a stakes. 2 Valid. Gets no rest, but the added distance and possibly slightly slower pace could be to his benefit. 3. Anchor Down. Gray, Tapit son, Pletcher. Wasn't there a blog about those?
