What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Showing a feisty streak before the race began, and great courage as the race came to a thrilling conclusion, the supreme gelding Wise Dan returned a winner today at Saratoga.Read More

  • travel_vic · One cannot wear the title champion if one cannot do that ROUTINELY. That is what they best do. This is a very good, not great, thoroughbred competitor. · 1 hour ago
  • Eventer1999 · Vic, he does do these things routinely. Wise Dan carried 128 to victory in the Firecracker over an awful, boggy, yielding turf course. He was boxed in yet found a way to charge up the rail, brushing the hedge and drawing clear. Then next out, in the Fourstardave, he carried 129 in an absolutely wonderful performance. Of course, after that he shipped up to Canada and delivered what was IMO the greatest mile on grass ever run. Absolute dominance and a NTR. Wise Dan has overcome traffic, weight, track conditions, poor luck, lengthy layoffs, and now colic surgery. His win today was like John Henry's Arlington Million win- against all odds. Within a few months, he went from the operating table to the winners' circle in stakes record time. Wise Dan has shown his greatness time and time again, having won all but one start on the grass(and that was back in 2011), and ignoring the beautiful example of equine greatness is pointless. · 7 minutes ago
I think they should bring over "Kingman" for the Breeders Cup Mile, he would DESTROY Wise Dan.
  • Exterminator · Just like Bayern would destroy the Haskell field? I hope Kingman does come, then i could get higher than even money on Dan because the curse of supercool666 would kick in. · 9 hours ago
  • Mike Relva via Disqus · You prove what I always know,there's always at least one nut in every crowd. Thanks for confirming that. · 19 minutes ago

  • yukichan · He was my long shot pick...so pleased to see him make a nice late run, to finish ahead of some very nice horses. · 5 hours ago
  • MarlanaWalters · He comes out of the gate so slow and it takes him so long to catch up to the rest of the field, it doesn't matter what the distance is. Until the trainer figures out how to reverse this tendency, I don't see the point of putting him in grade 1 races. · 35 minutes ago

  • geldedridgling · I'm not one to harp on track biases but I counted 5 dirt races today and not 1 winner was ever more than 2 lengths off the lead in any of the 5 races. This race illustrated that point more than any of them. Hats off to Itsmyluckyday on winning a grade 1 but I hope to see him at the Jockey Club Gold Cup with another furlong to run. · 1 hour ago
  • travel_vic · SPEED is what wins the majority of races ALL THE TIME,even MORE so at the SPA all the time. Nothing unusual at all about that on that course. · 44 minutes ago
It's official, Shared Belief will be pointed to Awesome Again as final prep for BC Classic, per trainer Jerry Hollendorfer

The ML 9/2 would be a great price on PZone... is there an 'appearance bonus' for the Vosburgh winner's connections???
Finally got to see his excellence, Wise Dan, in person. Thank you Dan!
NYRA.com has put together a montage of Tom Durkin's most famous race calls, it was so fun to watch as it was funny, dramatic, and exciting as Durkin called in New York for 24 years. Tomorrow is Durkin's last day before his retirement, I just would like to say thank you Tom, for all the memories and the excitement you brought to the sport for over 24 years, from the highs to the lows in the sport, you provided the best race calls than anyone else, no one will ever replace you, and NYRA will never be the same without you, happy retirement and enjoy your last day Tom, you deserve every bit of it
The 4 year old gelding, Know More races now in a $16K-$14K(he's in for $14k tag) claiming mile main track Del Mar race. Career debut was a win in the grade 2 Best Pal in 2012. The then colt was also grade 1 placed in two other So Cal 2 yo stakes.
Nice field for Monday's Turf Monster at Parx includes Ben's Cat and Private Zone.
Sent off at 4-1, Palace made the rest of the field look average with a dazzling stretch run to win the Grade 1 Forego.Read More
  • AndyScoggin · Finally we have a repeat winner in the Male Sprint division and an impressive one at that. · 3 hours ago
  • james.farrell.3760 · After seeing him run on Whitney day and making the mistake of not betting him. I sure wasn't going to make that mistake again and it paid off to the tune of over $130. This horse keeps winning he will be a serious contender, come the BC sprint in the fall! · 2 hours ago
Half bro to Bluegrass Cat wins allowance at Delaware Park
Wins the Harry F. Brubaker!!
Damn I knew the Bear grease was a gimmick :(
  • plosives · All jokes aside, Good run by both 1st & 2nd horses. Gotta give my heart to the Ghostzapper babies though, regardless who their trainers may be. · 4 hours ago
WINS the Woodward!!!!!!!
  • Goblin · So pleased to see this colt continue on a successful path after returning from a pelvic fracture! He appears to be a serious racehorse, and one of the limited number of offspring by ill-fated stallion, Lawyer Ron. Kudos and congratulations to Itsmyluckyday and his connections on this Woodward win. · 4 hours ago
Wow,I'm just thrilled for Itsmyluckyday!!!!!He has so much talent,it was great to see him win a Grade 1!!!Amazing,Lucky!!!!
Today was indeed his lucky day! Glad to see him get his G1.

Carlos Esquilin made his first trip to Indiana, arriving a little more than a month ago. He made his first trip to the winner’s circle Friday, Aug. 29, earning a win in the evening’s third race aboard Frontier Bones. “I was really happy to get to the winner’s circle because it’s been a long time,” said Esquilin. “In December 2012, I broke my knee and couldn’t ride for a year and a half. So it’s taken me a while to get back. I thought I had a good chance to win tonight, so I was really happy when I won.”
