Will American Pharoah carry Greatness to his Sire Career?

American Pharoah’s stud fee of $200,000 is the highest of any first crop sire. Can he continue to live up to expectations?

  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · Congrats to EFFINEX and Connections for a game winning G1 victory . HOPPERTUNITY has been looking fabulous lately in the mornings finally in such awhile . That was music to my ears knowing by seeing how much better HOP has been looking and now to have backed that up with a strong desired finish . KEEN ICE all I can say is Dale Romans what in the world are you thinking ! This colt should be running past all of these after passing the 1/8th pole set down for the drive into the stretch . I have no idea By Now how the training n conditioning of this Champ can be dropped so far back and just watch 3/4 of this type of race unfold in front of him with this much talent within him . Breeding Rights , I think should be putting in better , smarter runs by thinking the Winners Circle is at the 1/8th pole . By then , KEEN ICE should be home free . Cant take so many chances thinking a hot fraction pace will set up beautifully for this one giant late kick from the OutHouse to the PentHouse . Yes , KEEN ICE looked super in the drive to the finish . But how ever , a 4th place finish against this group IN MY OPINION holds not too highly bragging rights for the Breeding Shed . ( DORTMUND ) God works in mysterious ways . There was a good reason why this awesome handsome man missed Tuesday flight to Kentucky . I dont think DORTMUND was truly ready for that race that just unfolded . Just my opinion . I am aware that the CLARK was his main goal all along . And was looking so good leading up to that final week . Even I was getting somewhat excited for the CLARK with DORTMUND coming . But a setback kept him from traveling on Tuesday . And I truly believe God had his hands in on this situation . Baffert did a wonderful job by not rushing DORTMUND onto that plane Tuesday . And thank God there was no Wednesday plane . Good call from Baffert . I really like DORTMUND alot . I just dont have him rated as high as so many others do . I honestly need to see another race from him before I become too high on this Big Brown colt . I have a feeling there are going to be question marks concerning afew issues with him . Over All Though , what a Thanksgiving weekend of racing . The two yr olds even put on a good show to kickoff the Derby Future Pool 1 wagering . · 17 hours ago

WOW!! Conquest Big E dominates!!! Another good horse to watch in 2016. Loved his maiden win and thought he had a troubled trip in the Juvenile. Good horse and he looked great today.
  • HideousZippleback via Disqus · Yes yes yes! Super happy he won! And won nicely too! He sure likes those off tracks that is for sure! · 1 day ago

Red Vine, a stakes winner who has placed in three graded stakes, including the grade I Pacific Classic this summer, will be offered at the Fasig Tipton November Sale as a racing / stallion prospect. The son of Candy Ride is to be consigned by Brookdale Sales, agent for Jon and Sarah Kelly and Don and Joan Cimpl. Article on Bloodhorse
He finished 3rd in the Native Diver (race results ^^)? Preliminary BSF of 103

Definitely looking the derby fav at this point
  • Ferrisjso26 · I would say it's between him and Swipe but seeing as Swipe hasn't actually won anything yet I'd have to go with this colt. · 4 hours ago
Nice ride Mike Smith!

Now that I've seen what horse choking looks like with Martin Pedroza and Private Zone, was Victor Espinoza choking American Pharoah a little bit during the middle stretch of the Belmont Stakes (watching the video, it looked as if he was being held a lot tighter than the other horses and his head was arching more than others too during that stretch)?
With the retirement of his celebrated stablemate, is Dortmund now the most exciting horse in training?Read More

  • Meydan Rocks via Disqus · Gary Stevens? That was a Point Given surprise to see him on the back of Dortmund. Where was Garcia. may I ask? · 1 day ago
  • Johnsmith24 · Go Dortmund! The reason Dortmund is the most exciting horse in training is because there's no telling how good he could be! Look forward to watching him progress into his 4 year old campaign. Malibu Stakes next! · 1 day ago
Curlin's Fox was terrible. She can win in 1:33 but gets a bit of pressure and folds to come last in 1:35. She's not classy enough.
I harbor extremely strong doubts that Nyquist will ever come close to staying 10 furlongs. Uncle Mo never won past 8 and a half. Even 9 could be a bit too much to ask of Nyquist. And you can forget about a Triple Crown for him. He's never powering through 12. I think Songbird has the best chance of winning the Kentucky Derby of any 2 year old at the moment, and I really don't think it's all that close, either. I'd put Swipe 2nd behind her. If Songbird keeps dominating in the lead up to the Triple Crown series, I very much hope her connections reconsider and run her against the boys. As of now, she's better than any of them.
  • jrem1 · I'd like to see her go for the Derby too. Swipe seems to have some potential. Do you think that Exaggerator can be a factor in the Triple Crown races for 2016? · 11 hours ago
Anytime I see a curlin on turf go to the front I know the result. Horrific
Out for a few months with a slightly torn suspensory sustained in her Goldikova victory
Happy Retirement
May not have won but still the Champ
Could be champion older male
Inspector Lynley looking very handsome before the fourth race at Aqueduct yesterday.
I screamed this girl all the way to the wire!
Pretty soon there will be little Goldies being born. So excited :) I loved this guy.
