What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert will saddle defending champion Game On Dude in the Pacific Classic, the only one of four horses he nominated to the event. Of the others, Bayern is headed to Saratoga for Saturday’s Grade I $1.2 million Travers, Fed Biz will go in Sunday’s Pat O’Brien Stakes here and...Read More
I want Red to win for himself and for you. Red never stops trying, he's a wonderful horse to be for. Sometimes ray paulick (www.paulickreport ) has good aarticles on this boy
Two Ship & Win horses notched victories in Week 5 of racing at Del Mar, raising the meet total to 17 wins, $234,180 in bonuses and $25,000 in travel money distributed. The corresponding numbers for 2013 at a similar point were 18 wins, $209,733 in bonuses and $103,000 in travel money.
Rightfully so on Saturday,The Travers along with the supporting stakes races are the focus. Keep an eye on Race 4 though,there are many highly thought of 3yos' that will be running. This will be a key race down the line. The headliner is Waging War. He came into his 1rst race with some serious workouts. Got left a bit at the start ,had to rush up and go 5 wide the entire turn. Tired late in the race. With a better break in this race.He will be a horse of the future. Tony Dutrows horse is not bad either.
Trainer Richard Mandella said Brazilian champion Bal A Bali is “doing well” in recovering from a foot problem and will spend some time at a farm in Kentucky before being shipped to his stable at Santa Anita.
Spendthrift Farm’s champion Beholder, who won the 2012 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies and 2013 Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Santa Anita, is back in training after suffering a minor injury when she finished fourth in Belmont Park’s Ogden Phipps on June 7. Beholder’s third work since an August 1 return was a five-furlong bullet in 58.80 at Del Mar on August 11. She went five furlongs in 1:02.80 on Tuesday. “She went a little too strong in her (Aug. 11) work, so we eased up a little this time,” trainer Richard Mandella said. Beholder is on track for the Zenyatta Stakes on September 27 at Santa Anita, a race she won last year
In Sunday’s seventh race, Conquest Misbehave ran her final quarter in 23.83 and final eighth in 11.91, the fastest split at both points, on her way to a 2 ½ length win at 9-1. The next fastest home in the race was fifth placer Show Stealer, recording a final quarter in 24.61 seconds and final eighth in 12.46.
The more I look at this horse's pedigree, the more I like his chances.

  • travel_vic · there were THREE separate "Ribot`s"....could you tell which of the individuals would be the undefeated, 2 time winner of the Gran Prix de l'Arc Triumphe? all had the exact same parentage....How about the three EXACT genetics wise COPIES of Northern Dancer. Which would be the best sire of the century? · 2 hours ago
  • Sullivan · Since when are siblings exact genetic copies? Hollow-headed loose-chested tinkle · 36 minutes ago
Wicked Strong and Tonalist haven't got a chance against this guy! Be prepared for another "gate to wire" run from the awesome "Bayern". :-)
  • travel_vic · IF, and this is a very big IF, this animal CONTINUES to improve as he has the last two, he has a very good chance to wire......but at 10 panels that may be a tall order, not impossible. · 10 days ago
  • amino998 · Like this colt but too many westcoast Favs don't fare so well in the big ones at the Spa. Could be running uphill if the NY scrape isn't utiliZed. If they 'backrake' it, fugetaboutit :) · 39 minutes ago
Ha!
Here is a recent picture of the big girl posted by Besilu's manager on twitter: https://twitter.com/Fab_Buffolo/status/500740938969280512/photo/1
I like Red here and I hope he gets his G1 but it looks like a tough field.
Missed this one, giggles. Weekend Hideaway won the Morrissey for NY breds. Returning fan-fav Saratoga Snacks and also Brigand were a close 4th and 6th.
WILDCAT RED is my pick for the win. I like Coup de Grace, Fast Anna, and The Big Beast for place/show/4th!
returns in race 2 on Sat. in 7 furlong allowance race, will use as a prep for a stakes to be determined later in the year
The post-race comments of Michael Tabor, part owner of Australia, sort of suggest they might not even point for the Arc with Australia. Tabor kind of hinted the G1 Irish Champion Stakes at 2000 meters in roughly 3 weeks would be Australia's next target, ground permitting of course, followed by the G1 Champion Stakes at Ascot, also over 2000 meters in October.
  • amino998 · Rooting for rain on the mid-October English plain. · 3 hours ago
  • Northport · Tabor mentioned that Joseph said that 1 1/4 would be Australia's optimum distance. Given his pedigree I find that surprising since Ouija Board and Galileo got 1 1/2 no problem. I hope they change their minds and try the Arc - the Coolmore boys and Aidan O'Brien have never seemed to shy from a challenge · 2 hours ago
i hope at some point in his career, he comes to the USA, would love to see him compete in the turf division, might be the next Cape Blanco
  • Northport · I think he may be a bit nicer than Cape Blanco, haha. He seems a bit too valuable for Coolmore to bring over for our turf races, and they haven't mentioned the Breeder's Cup at all either. Maybe if he stays in training at 4 they could bring him over for the BC, but it seems pretty unlikely. · 2 hours ago

  • travel_vic · GUARANTEED comments I have heard now in over 40 years of post Triple Crown comments. Take your choice: 1) this is the worse 3 year old crop, or 2) that was a weak (choose one, Derby, Preakness, Belmont) that he faced. Come ON be a little original and less like the NONTHINKING clone one obviously is when they make these predictably un-informed statements year in year out. · 2 hours ago
