Wow! So close! That was a heck of a race by Tonalist and the winner Effinex!
  • K.D. via Disqus · The handicap turned out to be a centimeter for every pound he gave up to Effinex. · 12 minutes ago
After watching that debaclest equipment change that Clement can make for his next race is easy. Throw Velasquez off of this horse. Never even look at him in the paddock. This guy had absolutely no clue what he was doing on this horse. Dropped back 15 lengths,then he moves him into a pace to be a length off. Then he puts on the brakes and gets carried out wide. You would expect alot more from Johnny V. , unfortunately for the connections. They got absolutely no effort at all.
  • K.D. via Disqus · I'm not saying Johnny did any of that stuff but there's two things that this horse needs. 1) Put a Jockey that agrees with him back on board. That would be Rosario or Bravo. 2) Stop running this horse at a mile distance. it was ok to give him a mile first start back but the Met Mile was not a beneficial race for him. This horse had the shortest stride coming for home that I've seen him have in a long time. Get him above a mile and an eighth even if it means running him in 2 mile race. · 20 minutes ago
A great day out!

In a head bobbing decision, Effinex wore down speedster Coach Inge and out-finished favored Tonalist to score a narrow victory in the 1 ¼ mile Grade 2 Suburban Handicap.Read More

Everyone expects a lot from this colt. Good luck CO!
Boy, how good is Private Zone, another easy win, he is without a doubt a great Sprinter.
Amino it was a wee bit close at the wire,but the result is the same regardless of the winning margin. This one was huge,like i told you earlier. He outworked by far the great Dortmund. After looking at the sheets,and seeing that Kentuckian was not as fast as his Byers numbers. This was Academic.
  • amino998 · Nice big move IN, Nathan... but Academic is 1 of a 1/2 dozen contenders for the Plate tomorrow :) · 6 hours ago

Imagining is looking really good coming into the United Nations. Had a rough trip passing the stands the first time in the Man O' War and gets the jock switch to Johnny V. I have a feeling he's going to get a better trip stalking the pace with the outside post draw and spring the upset. Imagining/Main Sequence/Big Blue Kitten/Twilight Eclipse
