2014 Woodward Analysis: Norumbega is sitting on a big one

When Moreno earned his first Grade 1 win four weeks ago, he did so at odds of 10-1. Much like the Whitney, I believe Saturday’s Grade 1 Woodward, run ...

It's official, Shared Belief will be pointed to Awesome Again as final prep for BC Classic, per trainer Jerry Hollendorfer
Big Cazanova, who set track record for 1 1/8 at DMR Thursday, will likely be pointed to the Awesome Again at SA, according to trainer Peter Miller
Mike takes the blinkers off in a n1x 1 1/8th on the dirt Monday.

  • tmallios via Disqus · In todays nite cap at the Spa,hearing a little thunder on our boy Shirreffs ,in honor of our Justice System. Been a bit green in AM, but showing ability. If can get the Double digit odds,just may be worth a dip in the pool. · 1 hour ago
Wonder why they ran this horse in a maiden claimed first out. By tiz wonderful out of yearly report. Multiple stakes winner of bafferts. Also ran fourth in the Alabama. Also yearly report comes from a good family.
Churchill Downs has “no precise timetable for announcing the successor” to race-caller Larry Collmus, Numerous replacement candidates have been mentioned on social media and elsewhere, including Kurt Becker, Bill Downes, Frank Mirahmadi, Bobby Neuman, and Travis Stone. Curious to see who they choose, article on DRF
Give this guy credit, Curlin has had a remarkable year both on the track and off the track, Curlin gets inducted into the hall of fame this year, he's one of the top sires of 2013, he's got stakes winners from Palace Malice, to the undefeated Stopshoppingdebbie,to Moulin De Mongin, to Classic placed Ride On Curlin, to very promising two year old La Grange, and not to mention the highly anticipated debut of Jess's Dream soon, it seems like every curlin horse is either winning or running in the top 3, wether it's dirt, turf, or synthetic. He is one of the greatest of all time on the track, and now is spreading his legacy to his offsprings, hope he continues to have success and and his runners make him proud.
  • Goblin · I couldn't agree more, Jb. He caught my attention early on in Florida, before the Jackson, Bolton, and Sanan group formed to make their offer to Midnight Cry (MC were the original owners and were allowed to stay on as partners). He, Cigar, and Skip Away were the last of the American weight carriers; Curlin carried 132 lbs. in his DWC prep race. Curlin's runners are doing well on the grass as well as the dirt. As I listened to Barbara Banke's speech at the HOF induction, I thought she must truly regret that her husband did not live to share the day. · 1 hour ago
Look for his 2 yr old My Point Exactly Sep 6th at La Downs, looks like a nice runner!
wins a non graded stakes race and now he's the next mucho macho man?
  • Paladin · Who called him the next MMM? I do like his chances in the Super Derby. Should like that long stretch at La Downs. · 1 day ago

the Place colt in the 2014 Travers was done at the 1/16th pole just awaiting on anyone what was close and had the gas.....
  • cugel the clever · Not at all. He made the lead easily and relaxed. He had lots left in the tank. Blinks do help him overall but don't help with seeing horses coming up beside in the stretch. If he'd seen him earlier (or the jock was awake), WS would have engaged and shook him off. · 2 hours ago
A little more than three months removed from emergency colic surgery, two-time Horse of the Year Wise Dan is set to make his return in Saturday's Bernard Baruch at Saratoga.Read More
  • amdaman · "He's not going to abuse him and chase some horse around there just to get a win in him." WHAT?!?! Aren't jockeys supposed to actually try to win a race -- even if it means asking the horse for all it's got (I presume that's what the trainer meant by "abuse")? It's not a workout, it's a pari-mutuel race!!! Are these people forgetting that bettors money is at stake? It makes me sick each time I see a jockey stop asking a horse before the wire, only to get nipped in the last jump out of the money by a hungrier jockey. The worse part is that stewards do absolutely nothing about it. · 1 day ago
  • Jonah5110 · Since curlin was horse of the year in 2008, the last 5 horses of the year were a 3yo filly (Rachel Alexandra) a 6yo mare (zenyatta) an older filly (havre de grace) and this horse on 2 occasions. The classic division is in a bit of a slump. I think wise dan would do well on dirt, though. · 3 hours ago

When Moreno earned his first Grade 1 win four weeks ago, he did so at odds of 10-1. Much like the Whitney, I believe Saturday’s Grade 1 Woodward, run at the same nine furlong distance, and over the same Saratoga main track, is ripe for an upset, but this time the hunter is the hunted. Let’s take a l...Read More
  • rogueclown · i've been seeing very little talk about Norumbega, and yet i too think Norumbega could be sitting on a big one. if no one sends against Moreno it's his race to lose...but if someone does, or Moreno otherwise falters, i love Norumbega to spring the upset. McGaughey should have him fresh, Castellano is showing up on him and not any of several other horses he's ridden before...Norumbega is live, and i'm absolutely using him on my Woodward tickets. · 4 hours ago

They should've considered the Beldame
  • Eventer1999 · Why?? She would likely be soundly beaten again. They want 3yo filly honors and running up the track twice in a row in the later half of the year won't get her any awards. · 4 hours ago
I want to see Game On Dude run in a much shorter races like BC Mile Dirt or an 8.5F races and let's see if these so called "extended sprints" horses can catch up with him. With his age, it is very hard for him to win in classic races. Bullet Bob, please take note.
  • Mary Z. · Good odds next time, maybe. I think better for him to try for the lead in a longer route, 9, 10f. So many more can last at 8 or 8.5 f. · 3 days ago
  • supercool666 · I agree with you 100%. I came on here to post exactly the same thing!! I don't want connections to run him in the BC Classic, what is the point, he CANNOT win that race, he just wont stay!!! The BC Dirt Mile would be the ideal race for Game On Dude, he has so much speed and wont tire, I would love to see him go up against Bayern and Goldencents, it would be one of the best races at the Breeders Cup! · 10 hours ago
Trainer Todd Pletcher, who perennially dominates the 2-year-old landscape at Saratoga Race Course, will have two big chances in Sunday's Grade 1, $350,000 Spinaway for juvenile fillies when he sends out Angela Renee and Curalina.Read More

Wilmington, Del., August 28, 2014 —All wagers were refunded in the third race at Delaware Park today due to a technical issue. A temporary communications/tote malfunction allowed the mutuel pool for the race to remain open after the race started compromising the integrity of the pool. The issue remains under investigation. Subsequent races took place without issue.
Indianapolis worked out 8/28 at Del Mar on a fast track, running 5f in 1:00.60 handily.
kaitlinfree1 don't u like hate me, yeah I'm pretty sure u hate me, anyway what im getting at here is that i'd like to apologize to you for making you hate me, and this goes to anyone else i've upset on here. "I'm Sorry"
Look like Goldencents is headed for Keeneland for the Shadwell Turf Mile to take on Wise Dan. This will be his first race on turf.

  • tmallios via Disqus · Cedar you nailed it on the head. The BC Dirt Mile has a 1 Million Dollar Purse. The Turf Mile carries a 2 Million Dollar purse. They know that more than likely Dan has lost a couple of lengths. O'neill has looked at the competition and basically said......... Why not. Also he is far from a slam dunk on the dirt. They are not kidding themselves,they know that last years track the day he ran ,contributed greatly to his win. With all the negative public outcry after that day,and the fact that the track was switched overnite. Do not expect any juiced up surface at Santa Anita for this years BC Races. · 15 hours ago
