What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

I finally made it. After closing in on the big number the past few years, I finally attended my 50th thoroughbred racetrack for live racing. Just two days removed from my first ever visit to Sam Houston Race Park, I have to say that I could not be happier that I chose the Houston, Texas oval for th...Read More

  • https://www.facebook.com/richa · Dont known why everybody is making an issue of the FOY and how slow it was. In the previous race did not US win in racehorse time..he was expected not to run to his best... and the track was also very tiring... what is the big deal.. the horse showed true grit and determination ...i think that these are the factors we are looking for in picking a derby horse · 14 hours ago

  • Goblin · Your candor is amazing and special, Fred. I, too, wish you continued success on your journey to recovery. A diminished skill set in one area can lead to new skills and accomplishments in another. I truly appreciate that you are now a contributing writer at HRN. · 6 hours ago
  • FRED HOLT via Disqus · Fred, my name is Fred also. I have survived cancer 4 times and have been clinically dead twice, am in recovery for the disease of addiction for 26 years. I will take a risk and tell you that the Lord has taken care of all of it! Today I am cancer free, healthy and happy (most days). if you will allow me to tell you more, please contact me. thanks Fred · 3 hours ago

Depending upon who you ask, Crimson Giant is: a.) A racing rarity. b.) A throwback to a bygone era. c.) A continuously overmatched iron horse. Or, d.) Just a healthy, happy horse that likes to play and play often.Read More

It will be five years, since the only jockey in the history of the Kentucky Derby, achieved his 3rd win in the previous four years of the Derby. Now, he can't even hit the broad side of a barn. How soon has fame faded?
  • CauseForConcern · He currently is riding at Oaklawn Park, where his record is: 65-6-7-6, for a 9.2% winning pct. Wishing him the best, in regaining his stride. You have already gone where no other jockey has ever been. 3-out-of-4 years winning the Kentucky Derby, and, then, to officially meet the Queen of England. · 8 hours ago

  • Mary Z. · Northport, Thank you for the smile I have tonight. Now, don't take that the wrong way, but to use slang, since when don't I beat those odds? I look for horses like Sir Fever. Really wish him continued success. Long way to travel. Big story, big shoes to attempt to fill, all of that. · 9 hours ago

  • veyedoublenwhy · Designs on Rome is running better then he has ever run in the past. For his running style I don't see the distance being an issue. Whichever horse ends up winning the race in Dubai will have to earn it, it's not going to be easy for anyone. · 20 hours ago
  • Trainers · I watched this race the other evening Matt and I think Main Sequence is going to have to bring his best if he is to beat this guy. WOW · 8 hours ago
bayern is going to dubai last i heard.i think they dont want to look bad loosing two in a row to sb,which at this distance they will most likley will cc im talking about
  • tmallios via Disqus · Please tell me that you are not serious with that post. Let me ask you a question then. If you owned a horse that you thought was the best Dirt Horse in the world. Would you run him in a Million Dollar Race,where if you won you would get back $600K . Or would you roll the dice and run in a 10 Million Dollar Purse. If you win that race,you get back 6 Million Dollars,and if you run 2nd you get back 2 Million Dollars. So after you answer that question honestly,then wonder if they care about Shared Belief or not. · 10 hours ago
Danzig Moon looks interesting.
Good trainer super breeder and owner. Has a shot at some of the purse.
Looking forward to this race on the Big Cap under card. The likely, and deserved, favorite will be Curlin's Fox, but I'm excited to see She's a Big Winner stretch out to a mile. She's gone two in a row on the hill in sprints and has shown some good fight against favorites.
  • ghelguera · Watch out for the Drysdale filly Entrechat, ran faster than she's a big winner on the same day. But looking like a nice field with those 3 fillies.....Curlins Fox will be like even money not worth playing · 10 hours ago
Won at Turfway on synthetic and now goes to Spiral on synthetic.
this field sucks sb can stumble and grab a quick snack and still win by 7.impertive big casanova r u kidding me.i dont see why more trainers /owners wouldent use this race as a nice prep for dubai???
