Goldencents had a very good 4 furlong breeze on 9/13 ...Don't be surprised if he stays home for the Awesome Again. He moves very well over that track. Hope I'm right...
Sharla Rae is going to be a superstar......filly to watch.

  • Mary Z. · Come to think of it, the Royal Delta remark was over the top. I suppose I will have a bullseye on me forever when it comes to her. I cannot make it more clear that I did not blame her losses in the past two years in the U.S. on the mare. I doubt I will change my opinion. Pretty much sorry I commented on this thread. · 1 hour ago
She is on the memorial wall. Listed as fracturing LF while training and EOT at Saratoga on 8/24 :(
This guy is on the memorial wall as being deceased. Listed as breaking down during training at DMR on 8/24 :(
Glad to see him win the Barretts Juvenile. If he keeps this up he'll be a star like IHA.
So now we are seeing Candy Boy in the mix. Really??? Looks like PAD is shaping up to be a "apples vs oranges" field. CC fan or not - I am really having my eyes peeling now just WHO else wants to take a grab at this 1M purse. Last I read on Candy Boy: "on June 29, Candy Boy worked 6F at Santa Anita on Fast Dirt in 1:12.80 h finishing 5/12" almost identical to CC's workout a couple of days ago. It's been awhile, and the info can be found under CB's blog. Worried?? No - not at all. Just scratching my head over these "Probables"....

  • RobGlycenfer · first off, they didn't even run on the same track. second, bayern has a great shot, he blew a field away going 9 furlongs. third, it is an owner's final decision to race or not. leave your personal issues with baffert at the door pal. · 3 days ago
  • reagbeag · Bayern does deserve a break based on his last race but let's see what he does here instead of complaining about Baffert's ego. · 2 hours ago

If you handicap the race, you realize that CC is coming off of a 3 month layoff and an injury. Plus, this race is coming up light on pace horses. If Bayern gets loose on the lead at 9 furlongs you could have a repeat of the Haskell. If CC challenges him early off the 3 month layoff, he could tire late. It's a horse race and while CC should be the prohibitive favorite, 4-5 and 1-9 horses lose every day.
I had the tri but didnt bet it that way. In the end I bet 10 to win on bobbys kittne and 5 to win on both trade and kaigun ughh and i dont pick the tri much
is there any word on when he is going to have his first race
Winning an ungraded stakes race in Maryland may not be the most traditional prep to the Breeders’ Cup, but then again, Bern Identity is no ordinary Laurel Park listed stakes winner. Read More

  • https://www.facebook.com/john. · I was surprised to see him run 3 times in 5 weeks as well. That being said I do not think there is anything wrong with that if he is sharp and healthy. If he was a classic distance running it may be more curious but as a sprinter I don't think it is an issue. Also I do not agree with the statements made about Kelly Breen. He has been patient with many of his top horses, he is a guy that gets on them in the mornings and is very diligent about his work. He has won some big races including the Belmont Stakes so its not like this horse is his ticket into the limelight or his first big horse. · 6 days ago
  • UnionRagsRules · Cut it some slack guys. He's been running in sprints. Just like pressed workouts every 2-3 weeks and he hasn't even put this horse under the morning clock in two months. His workouts are his races, he makes them look easy. He is a tenacious horse that has now shown ability to dig deep for extra speed. Bet him next out, you'll feel better. · 3 hours ago
5 for 5, wake up Nick wins again in the Barretts Juvenile, very nice colt

I may have been absent, but I definitely haven't been idle! Barrel races every weekend since Aug 31st and another this weekend before I get my whole one weekend off. I have been still following Bern as closely as ever, and man, has he sure impressed. I always knew he was a special colt from the day I first read about him... May 5th, 2012. A day most remember as I'll Have Another winning the Derby, but a day I will always remember as Union Rags loosing the Derby... in a hunt to find the next big thing (horse, really) I found a list of a few individuals who had either shown brilliance or had the pedigree to do so. Those horses were I'm Boundtoscore, Amarish, Powerful, and of course Bern Identity. Don't ask me why, but I felt something when I read that name, and something even more when I saw he had broke his maiden by 13 lengths in his last start. Funny how it all started, really. I so badly wanted him in the Derby, I couldn't see straight. I STILL think he can stretch out, but why bother when he can win so much at 6f? The pursues are not much higher, and now he's an older horse with no "Derby Dreams". Still hope they try to stretch him out... I really, really think he could do it. For now, I'm super happy and I hope he continues on this path. Who knows, if he does win the Breeder's Cup Sprint maybe he can win the Vox Populi award. I think I might cry if he does. It truly has been a fairy tale so far.
