What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Would a reform of the Eclipse Award structure change the way that horses are campaigned in North America?Read More

  • AndyScoggin · So according to this system, Bayern has the THREE best performances of American horses and California Chrome is no better than Game On Dude, Main Sequence, and Wise Dan. · 5 hours ago
  • slewcrew7778 · Couldn't agree more with your last thought, Matt. Campaign strategies today are mainly geared toward taking the paths of least resistance and racking up empty G1's for the sole purpose of crafting breeding resumes all too often. While prestigious races should count for something, they should not outweigh the level of competition faced when it comes to determining the top performer. There seemed to be a glimmer of that long gone competitive spirit this past year. The days when horsemen were determined to prove who had the best horse or at least take a shot at beating one. There was less concern about saving face for the breeding shed. But then there were also less big money races to choose from. That would seem to me the main reason why horsemen today do not need to take the challenging route. Racing needs it's rivalries to thrive. Any reform that brings top horses together as often as possible can only be a positive for the sport. Not to mention adding some real meaning to the Eclipse Awards. · 4 hours ago

Monday's 6th race (3:55pm CT) from Fair Grounds is a $39k Maiden Special Weight event for LA-bred 3-year-old fillies traveling one mile on the main track. #8 Sharp Miss (6-1) finished an okay 4th of 10 in her local turf sprint bow.

  • Mary Z. · Big upset in that FG race 6 yesterday. The 8 paid $73.40, first time starter. I could have easily gotten the wrong race today. Weird morning. I like your long-ago memory porch pounder, amino. The 2 could be the slow speed. · 23 minutes ago ·

I love this colt. I'm also seeing a trend. When Curlin is crossed with the storm cat line it produces some nice horses.

Able Friend has announced himself as quite possibly the world’s top turf miler with another sparkling display at Sha Tin in the G1 Stewards’ Cup. Read More

  • bernieblues · Now for most of us who are more familiar with U.S. racing, after Sunday's performance, race fans in H.K., more of them old-time track renegades, are already comparing ABLE FRIEND with - not SILENT WITNESS - but the more legendary CO-TACK (ex-BRASH PRINCE), a freak reaching deeper into Hong Kong folklore, and his epic performance way back in the 1983 running of the Sha Tin Trophy (refer to the YouTube link), also at the same distance of 1600m, or roughly a mile, stopping the clock in a dazzling 1:33.30. Folks are debating because (a) it was plain, natural turf back then, versus the "sand-mesh" turf installed today at Sha Tin, with more state-of-the-art drainage and virtually no yielding turf, and (b) CO-TACK waspenalized with a handicap weight of - sit tight everybody -150 POUNDS! The SPCAs would be out in full force today, but that was the weight scale thru that era in H.K.. Who deserves more respect? Currently it's becoming more of a battle of generations there, and you be the judge! (BTW who was aboard CO-TACK thru the bulk of his racing career? A.J. Cruz, who then conditioned as a trainer, you bet, SILENT WITNESS.) http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ng3eOrIUH-4 · 15 hours ago
  • Ivan John Skibinsky via Disqus · When did he beat Wise Dan to make that claim? Until he does it's just baseless bragging. Bring him to the B.C.mile turf and run against Dan or shut up. Or will it be excuses made not to Face Wise Dan like Frankels owners made and every other so-called top turf Miler from outside North America has made since Wise Dan came on to the scene. They will show up as soon as Wise Dan starts slipping and not before than. lol. · 50 minutes ago
Khozan has come out of his win in great shape. Will probably head to Allowance next and then could take a swing at a big one. (Meaning Florida Derby) according to DRF

Untapable, the champion 3-year-old filly of 2014, had her first workout of the year when she breezed an easy half-mile in 51.80 seconds Monday morning at Fair Grounds. According to DRF
My cousin is an a Prentice jockey at santa anita, he told me that the word out there is that coz is still not ready to race.
Good effort on Mighty One today.
Sometimes you eat the fog, and sometimes the fog eats you. Such was the case today at scenic Portland Meadows on the occasion of the 47th running of the $35,000 Portland Mile. The signature event of Oregon’s top track turned out to be less scenic than usual due to pea soup like fog that shrouded the...Read More

I like calculator in this race...
I'm gonna say Punctuate.. I've liked his workouts so far. Any word on his new jockey? He broke his maiden with Rosie in the irons. Exact box: Punctuate/ Texas Red.
American Sun was eased at Santa Anita today, no news yet on her condition.
Curlin doesn’t count he is related to the Messiah. LOL Maybe CUrlin and Zenyatta. HMM
