  • travel_vic · Moreno came out a bit late but not enough to matter. · 44 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. · 6 minutes ago
The ML 9/2 would be a great price on PZone... is there an 'appearance bonus' for the Vosburgh winner's connections???
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

  • jonathanpoker · Absolutely incredible, What a champion. If anyone had that exacta i applaud you · 28 minutes ago
  • 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. · 20 minutes ago
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. · 1 hour 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! · 57 minutes 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. · 3 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. · 3 hours ago

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.”
J D Acosta padded his lead in the jockey standings when he rode four winners on today’s ten race program at the Maryland State Fair. Hugh McMahon saddled two winners this afternoon to move ahead of King Leatherbury in the trainer standings with two days of action remaining at the Fair.
What a purple patch being enjoyed by English Channel. Calumet may be looking to EC and Oxbow to kick start their stallion program -- would be great to see Calumet return to the lofty heights of yesteryear. Glory days!
