What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Taghrooda is a "superstar filly", she could beat Untapable by 10 lengths, ON THE BRIDLE!
  • Exterminator · Didn't Bayern just do that? Well, he beat her by 9, but that's close enough. Irish You Well, a MAIDEN until recently, beat her. Nice filly, but no match for the boys and certainly no match for Taghrooda. · 10 minutes ago
It is funny just how the Public interpets various races as to how they are run. 2 weeks ago in the Delaware Handicap, Rudy Rodriguez filly won as impressive as you can ask a horse to do so. She put up a huge Beyer and speed figure. Yet all most could talk about is how she stole the race on the front end. Yesterday at Monmouth Park,Bayern did the same thing. He told all that wanted to listen. "Come get me if you can. He to ran a spectacular speed figure. Yet he just like the filly are given no real credit. It was the fact they were alone on the lead that did the trick. Yet a horse like Palace Malice can go to The Fair Grounds. Meet up against a 6 horse field loaded with substandard talent. He sat half a length off of a crawling pace,then in the final quarter ran away and hid. Then he came to Belmont Park. Here he faced 3 other substandard horses. He SURPRISINGLY "wink-wink-wink) won off and hid by 15 lengths. Yet immediately after. Not only to the Palace Mites,but to many more. This was reason to call him the best dirt horse in America. I guess it all comes down to who the public likes and dislikes.

  • buds · Tom- it shouldn't come across "funny" or surprise you, or anyone, that a blog and chat site is loaded with bias opinions. Whats funny is how people state their opinion as fact, and disregard others ideas. As far as Bayern, he ran one of the best races ive seen this year. He easily handled a pretty solid field. No longer sure what his best distance is, but hes looking versatile, and there aren't many that can accomplish what he has this season. I for one didn't think he could pull it off yesterday, I was wrong, AGAIN. · 2 days ago
  • supercool666 · I really like BOTH "Bayern" and "Palace Malice", and my opinion is, Bayern would beat Palace over a mile, but Palace would win over the Breeders Cup Classic trip! What are your thoughts on the matter? · 51 minutes ago
Will NOT be running in the fourstardave. Lopresti will supposedly be giving more information about WD later today.
  • MaryZinke via Disqus · In response to the longer comment shown on the backside, he had a great run since the 2011 Clark. Job well done, Dan. · 1 hour ago
  • amino998 · "I want to do what's right for this horse and I kind of feel like it was maybe just wishful thinking to try and make this race," LoPresti said. "Don't get me wrong, there's not a thing wrong with him; I just need more time. he's not dragging (exercise rider) Damien (Rock) around like he should yet, and maybe we've been pushing too hard to try to make this race." · 1 hour ago
I was already a big fan of this mare, but I just gained a whole new level of respect for Missunited watching her win the G3 Lillie Langtry Stakes at Goodwood. She overtook Nymphea to strike the front and had to fight a host of challengers flying her which included Arabian Comet, Waila, and Epsom Oaks winner Talent. Missunited defined what the word "game" means in this race.
  • Euro Trash via Disqus · I do have to say she is game. I was surprised at her race before this, but both you and jonquil were not, I believe. She has stepped up nicely. · 1 hour ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Just saw them post on the Racing Post web-site that the G3 Lillie Langtry Stakes was the final race of Missunited's career. She has now officially been retired to broodmare status. · 1 hour ago
A very talented field of nine has come together for the 2014 Whitney (G1). Up for grabs is a purse of $1,500,000 and a "Win and You're In" spot in the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Classic.Read More

  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · Palace Malice is going to use this as another race padding his resume for HOY. I like WTC but Palace Malice is superior. I will not wager on Palace Malice himself to win as the odds are not good. Maybe I'll pair him with Its my lucky day · 2 hours ago
  • BryanHorn · Can't wit for this race; will be there. Perfect PP for palace, rough post for WTC, especially since Moreno (3) and IMLD (4) will be the speed. Palace can tuck in behind the 3 and 4 and will be ready to pounce at the right moment. Key to the race, pace-wise, will be if IMLD presses or tries to arrest the lead away from Moreno. If Moreno sets a hot pace, there is a lot of long-shot closing speed in this race (last Gunfighter, Prayer for Relief come to mind) or some steady cruisers like Romansh and Departing could benefit. Either way, I like Palace Malice to win handily w/ Moreno, Departing and Last Gunfighter; I don't think this'll be WTC's day. · 2 hours ago
Cavalryman at 8YO looking better than ever, holding off fast charging stablemate Ahzeemah to win the G2 Goodwood Cup!! I called this one, as Cavalryman was pick to win this race.

Private Equity I am extremely impressed, thanks for sharing all information about private equity. It is a great post for the people to get the proper information. http://challiscapital.com.au/private-equity/
Steve Asmussen's "suspension" of Scott Blasi always seemed a sham. Ultimately, Asmussen is responsible for the cruelty shown in PETA's investigation, including the use of sedatives, pain-masking drugs, and chemical stimulants; running sore and injured horses; and smearing caustic chemicals on horses...Read More

  • Eventer1999 · PETA is still using one bad apple (well, two, I dislike Asmussen) to damn the entire sport. Note SPORT. I hate their referring to it as "the industry." As an equestrian, I support the sport of racing horses. Not this crap with drugs and such. The INDUSTRY needs to rethink itself, so that the SPORT can be enjoyed. I say ban everything but regular veterinary care. If any given horse can't take that, then so be it. Retire him. He's not in fit condition to run. PETA, although a group of scumbag extremists, has a point- the drugs have gotten bad. Times are all relative, if these drugs are truly "performance enhancing," then the banning of them will simply result in drugless horses that are ever so slightly slower. The recent Lasix study from Hong Kong shows that LASIX IS NOT NECESSARY. Heck, Royal Delta must've been the best we've seen in many years if Lasix actually gives such an edge. I'm not saying it doesn't, but I highly doubt it does. PETA needs to go back to saving the cows from being made into burgers. Racing is obviously not for them. I'd love to see their response to the #FullStoryPETA hashtag. · 12 hours ago
