What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Wise Dan will not be doing a "Goldikova", this Horse cannot Win the BC Mile 3 times in a row, it just wont happen. Wise Dan fans better prey that Kingman doesn't turn up, coz he will destroy Dan. Even Toronado and Variety Club, who are scheduled to turn up, can beat Wise Dan. Sorry Wise Dan lovers, he will NOT be doing the "3 peat". :-)

  • Mary Z. · Don't be shocked of he does. This gelding, who I liked when people where asking, "Who is he?" has the most jinxy-in-reverse good fate. Maybe he grazes on four leaf clovers. Very good horses have some little something befall them when they face him. Only slightly better than mediumlies this time, but still, he was that nose better. Has good juju going for him. · 21 hours ago

  • Eventer1999 · Overrated? Zenyatta was the overrated one. All this hate on Wise Dan is pointless and shows no respect to the horse. Coming back from colic surgery to run just off the track record under 127 lbs isn't easy. Yes, Vic, I know 127 isn't very much compared to the horses of yesterday, but aren't you the one who constantly said that comparing horses from different eras is pointless? He's carried all the weight they've asked him to and he's done enough to be considered great. I'm generally a nice person, but "supercool"666 is a troll and a very immature person. You act like the people from my old school. · 22 minutes ago
Splashtastic - Tom Durkin.
Zenyatta, Rapid Redux, Paynter, and Mucho Macho Man. In only four years of existence the Secretariat Vox Populi Award has done a marvelous job of reflecting the collective heartbeat of racing fans from coast to coast. The Vox Populi, or Voice of the People, was the brainchild of Penny Chenery. Secre...Read More

  • Quilla via Disqus · Nice writing, Mary. My heroes have always been horses and I'm betting some folks reading this will recall another inspiration - "Once upon a time there was a horse named Kelso. But only once." And now there's Wise Dan. :) · 8 hours ago
  • Boknows via Disqus · Great write Mary!! So Wise for your age!! There are many things to be found in Greatness! In a Great Horse like Wise Dan you get what you see! Not through history written by someone else, but through pure unadulterated determination, Class and Skill! It is Pure in the purist sence of the word thur Records kept on all of his races and what he has done in his career. Can't lie or pass over the Facts! Of course that does not happen if you don't have direction and training and in this case the Stars aligned and we got Morton Fink and Charlie LoPresti and the rest is history! I think what you see is these Great Ones do not come along often and when they do we all feel something that is hard to decribe. It lifts us up and gives us purpose and yes a direction of our own! It pushes you to succeed in your life and to give you strength and all that through a horse and his connections! God Bless you in your Life's Journey and May it take you where ever you want to go! My first Great One was" Secretariat " at about the same age as you are now! · 4 hours ago

  • tmallios via Disqus · Amino if the Private turfs anywhere near his best dirt races. Your Pal and feel good story Rene just may be needing a Polaroid after the race. After so many false alarms he shows up in the land of Brotherly Love. Have to assume that they know exactly how good he is on the green. With time running out to the BCC, i guess they made their decision.But WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In NYC today ,they are predicting scattered T-STORMS. iF The same is slated for South of the TPKE. Then he becomes a mortal lock. I would say that if it stays on the lawn and they give me 5/2, i can take a shot. Pedroza shipping in is a plus,doubt he has to much family in Pa. and is so anxious to see the Liberty Bell. Stone Cold in the feature. To talented to underachieve as he has been. Today may be the day at a price. See ya at the windows. · 4 hours ago

this is a really nice colt. from what I remember he went up the rail like a pro!
Until they are IN THE GATE, in a race, one has no idea, really what you have. Friend had one that almost killed itself as a baby with a head wound, and ran it in a MdCLm and it won by 10....Won the biggest race on the grounds by season's end.
