What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Caracortado, the old stakes winner is still around. “He’s still has the same old quarter crack BS (on his right front foot),” trainer Mike Machowsky said of the California-bred son of Cat Dreams, now eight. “I hope to get him back to the races at some point, but I have to do right by him. No time table. You know how horses are.” Caracortado last raced on Aug. 13, 2014, finishing fifth in the Green Flash at Del Mar. In 20 career starts, he has seven wins including the Robert B Lewis Stakes in 2013 when it was a Grade II race, and the Grade II Del Mar Handicap in 2011.
As of right now I'm going to bet on Madefromlucky, Tale Of Verve, and Frammento.
While Affirmed may not be ranked highest of the Triple Crown winners on the overall list of great horses, Secretariat and Seattle Slew being ranked higher, in my opinion Affirmed was the greatest to achieve the Triple Crown. The reason for this opinion can be summed up in one word. Alydar. None of the other Triple Crown champions had to defeat a challenger of this caliber in all three races.

  • cugel the clever · "Energy distributions OF the race results are NOT available pre-race so reviewing them has no PREDICTIVE value..." SO SAYS THE BLOWHARD WHO REGULARLY DROPS INTO DISCUSSIONS TO PONTIFICATE ABOUT %MEDIAN, EARLY PACE, ETC, ETC DISQUALIFYING HORSE A, B, C. CLEARLY, LOOKING AT A BODY OF DATA ABOUT THE BELMONT INDICATES ENERGY DISTRIBUTION ATTRIBUTES THAT FAVOUR OR DISFAVOUR CERTAIN HORSES. FOR EXAMPLE, IF A HORSE DOES NOT REGULARLY EXHIBIT A %MEDIAN CONSIDERABLY UNDER 68% IN ROUTES, THEN HE IS PROBABLY A TOSS. ALSO, IF A HORSE IS A HABITUAL DEEP CLOSER HE WILL PROBABLY BE AT A DISADVANTAGE. IT IS SOME OF THE MANY PIECES OF INFORMATION THAT GO INTO THE RACE ANALYSIS PROCESS. IT IS NOT SINGULARLY PREDICTIVE. · 23 hours ago

  • Sullivan · Every year the Met Mile comes up huge, and then a horse scares the rest off, a big favorite decides not to lift a hoof... let's hope this year is an anomaly in more ways than one. Hard to believe it's been that long since Sahara Sky won this race, and how much it has changed since being removed from this very weekend... Can't wait I'd love to see this end up being the beginning of a Palace Malice/Tonalist rivalry · 20 hours ago
  • tony bada bing · Brian, this is how I felt about last year's Phipps and that race did not disappoint with three very classy fillies battling it out... · 13 hours ago
A really nice looking son of War Front out of an Unbridled's Song mare, War Disaptach has compiled quite a creditable of record of 5-4-1-0 with stakes wins on turf and polytrack in France, and given his pedigree I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out he could kick some butt on conventional dirt also. His only loss to date was a 1/2 length defeat to the still unbeaten Full Mast who was the controversial winner of the G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere on Arc day when Gleneagles was DQ'd. Nearly all of the race replays for War Dispatch can be seen on his profile page on this web-site, so check him out. I like his chances to run big at a tempting price in the upcoming G1 Prix Du Jockey Club.
I'm going with the peter pan stakes winner usually proves well here. Made from lucky is a good horse, putting him with AP and materiality. I do not think we will have a triple crown winner once again.

Liam’s Map, unraced since winning the Harlan’s Holiday last December, worked a solid half-mile in 48.63 seconds over the Belmont Park training track Friday in company with the graded stakes winner Blofeld. It was the second work at Belmont for Liam’s Map, who had worked four previous times at Jimmy Crupi’s farm in Ocala, Fla. Pletcher says he isn't sure when Liam's Map will race, but it will be sooner than later. Article on DRF
Ride On Curlin, runner-up in the 2014 Preakness, is on another break after coming out of his last start “a little banged up,” according to trainer Billy Gowan. Ride On Curlin finished last of nine, beaten 22 lengths, in the Grade 2 Alysheba on the May 1 Kentucky Oaks program. “He’s just got some wear and tear,” said Gowan. “We’re giving him 60 days on the farm and will evaluate him from there.” Article on DRF
I think Palace Malice is pretty much ruled out of the Met Mile now as Johnny V has accepted the ride on Tonalist according to DRF.
