What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

As I do every year pre-Turkey, I'd like to let HRN know how thankful I am for all of you; buckpasser, Mary Z, Tmalios, Sullivan, Travel Vic, Goblin and the rest. Now some thoughts: Thanksgiving to me is more about racing than football. I will celebrate this year as I do each by watching the Thanksgiving Handicap, (This year I am going with Ride on Curlin, my 2nd choice behind Chrome in the 140th KD) then, while the women gossip around the Black Friday ads to game plan their early shopping strategy, I will be looking at the pp's for the Clark and Cigar Mile with my Maker's 46( A bourbon to truly be thankful for.) out of my lucky 139th Kentucky Derby Julep glass it used to be the 08 glass until IHA. I was hoping Dortmund would run and I have been high on Keen Ice all year but without Dortmund's front running, I think the race will set up for Effinex. I may need a second bourbon or two to help me figure out the Cigar Mile. Private Zone always scares me, I know Tonalist is gifted but he looked a bit shakey last time out.
Thursday's 7th race (2:00pm PT) from Del Mar is the Grade 2 Hollywood Turf Cup for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a half on the turf course (Rail at 6 feet).#7 Ganesh (8-1) is 0-for-5 this year in the U.S. with a trio of graded placings.

  • travel_vic · Before the OVER HYPED Breeder's Cup screwed p the logical ascension of a year end champion, this contest was pivotal for the Eclipse for sprinter. The great Ta Wee won it twice under imposts of 130 and 140 pounds. My Livermore also was successful at that same high weight penalty. 7 La Verdad overlooked in the Breeder's Cup sprint 6 Salutos Amigos 2 Palace 1 Captain Serious The trio of 6 Salutos Amigos 1 Captain Serious 2 Palace stand out historically but La Verdad is the "hot" one now. Odds will take a hit on that notion so I would not hold my breath looking for a price here. Just watch and enjoy raw speed. LOTS of front end in this contest, but that track favors that style...WILL be a good one to watch · 2 hours ago
2 for 2 lifetime - with a combined win total by 31 1/2 lengths!!!! Could be the female Smarty Jones! 🐎
Track biases often appear and disappear with little fanfare. The early bias extant currently has been "alive and well" now for almost 10 days. Calgary Cat a big (and NORMALLY logical) favorite (on a fair track) and short short price, seemed to never pick up a hoof Sunday, and then last night the big 3/5 choice, Strut the Course, imitated the same "no move," as the pace horses kept on going. Not limited to the just the higher class animals, cheaper stock from Fort Erie and hanging on to the wire...Saratoga Boy in last night's last contest among others. This bias can disappear as fast as it arrived, so with 4 days left in the season, UNTIL IT DISAPPEARS, it would be smart to back the historically "faint of heart." Big middle and late movers are at a significant disadvantage right now.

Dortmund should coast in this race, Iron Fist is pretty good too. Knowing Gary Stevens, he won't win by anymore than he needs to, my prediction is Dortmund by an easy 3 lengths with Iron First 2nd.
What were your top three favorite races this year? Mine: 1. AP in the Belmont Stakes 2. Honor Code in the Met Mile 3. Shared Belief over California Chrome in the San Antonio
  • Show All 4 Comments
  • slewfan1977 · Seems like ages ago that Shared Belief beat California Chrome, and people thought it would be the best race of the year! My top 3: 1. American Pharoah in the Belmont 2. Honor Code in the Met Mile 3. AP's Haskell (the complete and utter domination was like a description of Man o' War, and he ran incredible speed figures to boot) · 113 days ago
  • jrem1 · Hi. I just started posting on here about 3 weeks back. I came across your question here and wanted to give you my three favorite races for the year. 1. AP's 6 1/2 length victory in the BCC over a field consisting of older horses in an explosive and somewhat dominant fashion was really impressive to me. And we have to remember that A P was an advanced 3 yr old since he was born in Feb of 2012 so, in essence, he wasn't too far from being a 4 yr old himself. He looked a good deal more imposing physically than he did in the Travers....Must have put on another 25 to 30 pounds of muscle. 2. AP's Belmont, of course, which speaks for itself. 3.Honor Code at the Whitney. Something about the way he chased down Liam's Map caught my eye. Of course the Met Mile was similar to it, but I just liked the Whitney for some reason. · 7 hours ago
Comparing to 40 years ago, is the "big sandy" surface or top sand layer a lot thinner now? If so, how many inches deeper was the sand layer 40 years ago?
Will race in the tenth race at Churchill on Saturday from Post 7. Rooting for him.
QUOTE:"his acceleration at the end of a 1.5 mile race when other horses were backing up." I was impressed with the colt as he ran by us at the 1/8th pole, BUT any acceleration was minimal (hundredths of a second) at that point in the race as he made all the fractions. His run was a classic sustained move from wire to wire.

  • Ruffianlover · He ran his final quarter faster than secretariat. He was definitely not slowing down like everyone else was actually pulling away to a greater lead from frosted. Nice try · 16 hours ago
  • By The Numbers · It was minimal, but he WAS accelerating - so the point is valid. He went :24.34 from the 1/2 to 1/4 pole, and went :24.32 from the 1/4 pole to the wire. But, he went :24.77 from the Start to the 1 1/4 pole. So from that point to the finish, he took 3 lengths off of his 1/4 mile fraction - very impressive · 13 hours ago
Words cannot describe how much I will miss seeing this horse run. As much as I love and will mis Pharoah, there was just something about Honor Code that I loved so much. Maybe it was his beauty, his stubbornness, him being from AP Indy's last crop, his incredible closing kick, or his ability to do things all on his own, I don't know but I loved this horse and I wish him a long and successful stud career, and will look forward to seeing his babies on the track. Goodbye Honor Code and thank you for the awesome memories <3
  • honor code via Disqus · Great comment💚 Honor Code was, and still is, AMAZING💚 I wrote to him after he retired, and he sent me a Honor Code hat!! I love it! Here is a picture of it😀 like we said, hes awesome😍😍😍😍 · 20 hours ago
