Hard Not To Like was purchased for $2.2 million by Dattt Stables. After the purchase, Gary Bush, agent for Dattt Stables, says Hard Not to Like could run in the G1 Matriarch on November 29th at Del Mar and then could be retired to broodmare duties, according to DRF
  • JerseyGirl via Disqus · Since she stumbled so badly at the gate, losing her chances for hitting the board, will she be retired and did she come out of the race ok? HNtL has been such a nice mare, and now with a third owner in so many years, she deserves at least a vaca! · 19 minutes ago
Now that I've seen what horse choking looks like with Martin Pedroza and Private Zone, was Victor Espinoza choking American Pharoah a little bit during the middle stretch of the Belmont Stakes (watching the video, it looked as if he was being held a lot tighter than the other horses and his head was arching more than others too during that stretch)?
I wonder what Stakes they'll name in his honor. Maybe it'll be a nice one. Heck, Bayern got a Stakes named after him while he was still active!
anyone know why daredevil was not entered in national museum of racing hall of fame? He was working great on turf.
It bothers me that no body seems to know much about this one.
Well a good friend said I better keep an eye out for this colt He won his first MSW. So keep n eye out for DREFONG

I don’t know about you, but for me, this past holiday weekend’s results only further muddied the picture as to who most deserves this year’s Eclipse Award for Older Dirt Male.Read More

Most likely, there won't be a Triple Crown winner in 2016. But if there will be one, Nyquist is the one.
Any word on what plans they have for Tonalist next year?
Royal Obsession won a MSW at Churchill Downs on 11/29 at 7 1/2 furlongs. RO Broke slow and ended up in last place. RO went wide around the turn and eagerly carried on to catch the horse on the lead to win by about a length. RO was a Keeneland November 1.15 million Stonestreet Stables purchase and trained by Steve Asmussen. Seems to be a talented two year old filly to watch going forward.
BREAKING NEWS: Dortmund has come out of the Native Diver in good shape and now, trainer Bob Baffert tells DRF's Jay Privman that he has three races at Santa Anita under consideration as a possible next start for Dortmund. Those three races are the G1 Malibu, at 7 furlongs, the G2 San Pasqual, where he could face 2014 Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome, and the G2 San Antonio Handicap. baffert says he is thinking of running him in the Malibu but isn't committed to the race 100%, he will take a couple of weeks to make up his mind, but his next start will be at Santa Anita.

BREAKING NEWS: Bob Baffert confirms that Hoppertunity will race as a five year old and will target the Dubai World Cup as an early season goal. According to DRF

  • peege · He was lucky to get that space in between Donegal Moon and Flexibility - it was a tiny bit of daylight. That said, a good win going away. A lot of good consistency this year among 2-year-olds · 1 day ago
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · winning in NY then shipping to Florida, that will make him the winter book favorite unless we see something extraordinary in the Los Al Futurity. I know its different owners but its certainly looking like the 2nd coming of Frosted but more precocious at this point for winning. · 11 hours ago
Dortmund at 17.3 hh reminds me of Forego, who was the same height. It took Forego to age four before he really came into his own. Forego was adaptable for a big thoroughbred, being the only winner of the JCGC at two miles who was also voted Champion Sprinter the same year. To demonstrate his versatility, he won four of his five starts, with one second, at distances of 1 1/2 miles or longer, and won eight of his 12 starts, with two seconds and two thirds, at seven furlongs. I hope Dortmund shows the same talents in the Malibu and beyond, and wish him and Baffert much success.
Dortmund is my horse, he was always my horse. Those shootouts with Firing Line clinched it for me. Yup, he got beat in the Derby, but then the Preakness was a freak washout and he didn't get to run anymore. (This "triple" crown is still missing one as far as I'm concerned, since it was such a throwaway) So glad to see him going gangbusters again. 10 years from now, let's see who is the best sire. Dort, or AP?
I have good feelings about Swipe.
My Christmas wish is that Gary Stevens rides Dortmund from now on. Such patience!
