Monday's 6th race (3:41pm ET) from Gulfstream Park West is an Optional Claiming event for filles and mares dashing six furlongs on the main track. #2 Ginebra (6-1) has been popular at the claim box recently and she likes this oval (8-3-1-2). She owns early-pressing versatility. Play Monday's Gulfstr...Read More
  • cognibene · Contenders before scratches: #9, 1, 4, 8. Favorite, #5 Daddy's Jewel (5/2) is legitimate. Choice to the #1 Ya Esta (5/1) has blurring speed and pace advantage with high percentage connections. Bet #1 to win 2Xplace. Exotics; 1/ 9, 1, 4, 8, 2, 5 and reverse. Good luck!!! · 23 seconds ago

Katana our 2003 champion filly has proved to be a tricky breeder and apart from this beauty- Broken Sword - Katana has not carried on the great tradition of Mr Tiz the champion son of Yir Tiz , who was by Champion Bletchingly - Dreamy Jeannie - however I have just bred a beautiful Power filly out of Everything (by Iffraaj - Tristean) photos here facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=840613189302752&set=a.840613149302756.1073741843.100000622378941&type=1&theater …
Cigar Street Upset….. Lays off Bayern and Moreno; Has the right racing style and breeding for this race. This special horse may have hit a few road bumps through out his career, but Mott will have him ready to show up big time for this one. (His skip away g.3 2013 victory). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWM53hhwbrY
Trainers like Mr. Shirreffs do not come along very often. When it comes to professionalism and knowledge of thoroughbreds this gentleman has it all on his own. I can tell about him that patience is his #1 key. Meanwhile other owners are fighting over trainers to train supposedly Coz' rival some dream horse named Jess's Dream. I love Coz' pedigree. His bloodline is superb and most of all 'REAL'. I wish them all good luck and let Cozmic One tell the world about greatness.

  • Laura Pugh (DeadHeat) via Disqus · Mr. Shirreffs, while a good trainer has one great claim to fame and that is Zenyatta. He doesn't have near the stats of other trainers who train at the very highest level. He was patient with Zenyatta and it worked, but his patience with her sister isn't paying off nearly as well, because he is acting like that one was Zenyatta, when she is a completely different horse. Time will tell with Cozmic One, but he is very closely related to Zenyatta's sister seeing as they share the same sire and second dam, so I would not be surprised if he didn't come close to the expectations that many are placing upon him. His bloodlines, while very good, have late bloomer/ distance lover over a very late bloomer/distance lover. That much distance in a pedigree that promotes late maturing growth normally doesn't work to well. You normally want a mixture of traits, and that isn't the case her. The Tapit colt, Ziconic or the War Front filly, have more of a chance of success as their sires lend more speed and precociousness to Zenyatta, where Bernardini does not. BTW, the "some dream horse" is Jess's Dream, sired by two time Horse of the Year Curlin and Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra.Also nobody ever called him a dream horse, the reason for his name is because it was his owners goal to see his two superstars bred together, and to see the foal it would produce. Hence Jess's Dream. Also "other owners" were not fighting over this colt, they took their time in deciding who would get him, because they wanted to make sure he went to the right trainer. · 72 days ago
  • Sullivan · One might place a Kentucky Derby winner in Giacomo, a top turf horse in After Market, or Big Cap winners in Bertrando and Tiago as a claims to fame · 9 hours ago
Do you guys know who will ride cozmic one when he runs?
Great ride? surely you jest. He had a horse and the HORSE moved when it needed too off a pedestrian pace. Horse run, riders are passengers. ANY journeyman could have done the same thing. ANY journeyman.
  • amino998 · “They were going hard in front, {44.52 1/2} so I just slotted him in, and I gave myself the option to go in or out,” Mullen said. “When I switched him in, I got a nice run, and he’s picked up well all the way to the line.” · 10 hours ago

I was told today that Debbie is still at Santa Anita, Make of that what you will ! jlp
Last evening between the t-bred and the standardbred programs, I was talking with a fornt office guy who was just finishing up the press release packet for this race. I asked "Is this big favorite ready for this?" His answer? "he is a little TOO sharp!" We watched on the post parade as he went out WITHOUT a pony and promptly threw the rider. He walked the horse about 20 strides while he was kicking and hyperactive. An outrider came over and helped him back ON, but DID NOT grab the bridle. The jockey DID NOT put his feet in the stirrups and the next thing we knew he was OFF in front of the gate up the way with the rider FLOPPING helplessly in the saddle unable to control the horse with his feet still out of the stirrups. If you ask me THIS ENTIRE FIASCO would have been prevented IF a pony had grabbed him when hyperactive AND if the jockey had been IN his tack like he should have been. Changed the race, put us behind the rest of the program by almost 35 mins.
On his best, Bayern is a freewheeling talent who runs the other horses into the dirt with speed to spare. Read More

  • icyhotboo · This race IMO is wide open. The only horses I would toss are the deep closers. As for the rest some are very questionable for different reasons, but I still believe the first three finishers will come from the first and second tier. I can't dismiss CC after what was either his swan song or a good tightner. Bayer on this surface can get the distance IMO. Tonalist was as much affected as Zivo when Maragh fell. The thought of that long striding giant on that fast track unhindered is mouth watering. Nice wagering race for whoever locks onto it. · 3 days ago

From Santa Anita: "Dirt Mile hopeful Tonito M. went five furlongs in 1:00.80 for Jerry Hollendorfer."
He's a Gorilla! He can beat them running backwards.

Punctuate if entered in the Juvenile Breeders Cup can upset. Green in changing leads but if he does, has that great surge and can mow down the leading contenders Carpe Diem and American Pharoah. Momma's will to win is in his heart.
Boy, Brown Panther sure picked one hell of a day to go pre-race mental.

Candy Boy looks to make the BCClassic very interesting! Hmmmmm......
To all the Euro posters. I am seriously looking to make a major play on this guy at Woodbine in the Canadian Int'l. . He is already as fast as the contenders and is picking up the all important Lasix. I am liking the other foreign horse also but not as much. Big Blue Kitten seems to be the best of the locals and i do not think he is much horse. Can you add anything to Hillstar. Please do not hold back and think that any negative comments will sway me. I do not know how much horse he is,but in this spot he looks great..

they need to stop running him in such easy spots and step him up to the big boys cause hes got the talent to contened in graded stakes. id rather own a horse who raced 20 times lost 10 won 2mill carear earings then a horse who raced 20 won 20 and earend 800k

  • Mary Z. · 7,2,5,8 final. Just coincidentally, not saying this affects the race result(and yet I am "secretly" saying that) the child, age 17 somehow wanders near just when the horses are entering the stretch. He either shushes or makes an unwanted comment about my patented scream. :( Rude. · 14 hours ago
