Possible for the Pacific Classic for her next start per trainer Richard Mandella. I like it!
With his victory in the Jim Dandy (G2), Texas Red made claim to be the second best three-year-old in the country behind the Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah.Read More
WOW!! Richard Mandella just told TVG he may consider running Beholder against the boys in the Pacific Classic. How awesome would that be to see!!?
Tommorrows Haskell is the perfect example,as to Pletcher always getting destroyed in the blogs due to his poor record in the Derby. Todd is sending out 3 horses on Sunday in the Haskell. Most likely,if they ran a relay race,tey could not beat Pharoah. But on the record,it shows he is 0 for 3 in the Haskell. Same thing with the Derby and his poor ecord. He gets the talent to the big dance,but regardless who trains them. They just are not good enough to win the race. Yes some of them do come in with impressive credemtials. But that is also true about many others. In any Derby that he entered a horse,and to my best recollection. None of his horses were ever an overwhelming slam dunk 1rst or 2nd choice. But when the statisticians enter it into the record. It looks as though he is a bad trainer,with a terrible percentage.
She just toyed with the rest of the field. A spectacular race bro!!!

WOW WOW WOW!!!! Beholder dominates again!!!! What an amazing filly with pure talent!! She is poetry in motion!!

Beholder / Yahilwa
I don't think anyone can beat her this year. The maturation & talent are just going to be too much for any female in the country. I don't think I've seen her any better. Patient & devastating.
Tomorrow will be a day to never forget, I will be at Monmouth to see a Triple Crown winner!!! I will do my best to post pictures!!! Also will post picks throughout the day. My excitement is through the roof!!!
Saturday p4: 1,2,3,4,9/1/3,4,5,7/6,7,8,11 & 2,3,4,9/1,2,4,5,8/7/7,8
New jock, please
I don't know what to think of him running in the Haskell or for that matter any top level stakes race. Sure he's collecting checks at the top level but the bottom line is he's still eligible for a NX1 allowance. I realize his connections probably think he has a better chance at getting 2nd place money in the Haskell then trying the more competitive Jim Dandy overall. I'm not so sure he can get 2nd money with his style over that track. It's like mixing oil with water. Try giving him a race in an allowance where he can maybe get a win, then put him back in with the big boys.
  • SeattleStrike12 via Disqus · Well thats an insult to keen ice, he finished third about 5 or 6 after american pharoah, but he lost to a triple crown winner! If there was another horse like that other than pharoah, frosted and keen ice would battle to the wire · 1 hour ago
Bad run in the Jim Dandy, 10-15 lengths back at the 1/2 mile pole and never really rallied, but the horse will find a win at a distance he likes, i do like the horse, so im rooting frammento on in his next race
LET'S GO BABY! Best weekend ever ! !!!! Out of the 5 East Coast Races today , 7 out of my 13 cashed in, including 3 winners ! (Rock Fall , Red Rifle , Madefromlucky ) And an exacta , Rock Fall and Big Beast. Hopefully tomorrow , Competitive Edge , Nonna's Boy , and Upstart will put a grand slam on this weekend .
Now that's the Texas Red I was hoping for. Great race.
His win today just goes to show you how good AP is and how this isn't a poor three year old class. There are some nice horses this year, it's just when you have a champion that stands out, they make the rest look like scrubs! War story also ran a nice race. Interested to see frosted and Texas red as AP shamed those two talented horses as well
There is nothing to touch American Pharoah in the Haskell. The compitition will be between Keen Ice, and the other horses for Scond Place. Unless, of course, Pharoah loses his rider, and if that happens, then, it's anybody race.
THE CHAMP IS BACK!!!!! Texas Red gamely holds off Frosted to win the Jim Dandy Stakes. Nice race for a 4 horse field.
Texas Red proves his juvenile Bc win was no fluke! He holds off a run from frosted to take the Jim dandy
