I love Medaglia d'Oro's ability to pass on broken blazes and super fillies.
Lost in all the shuffle on super Saturday, Hope's Love, California Chrome's full sister, will try to break her madien in race 8 going one mile. Two turns for the first time in her career.
Does anyone know where Royal Delta is? how she is? She was to go to Ireland but there are no babies listed for her? A horse like that could not just fall off the face of the earth. Where is she.. please post!
I am old and never thought I would see another Ruffian. But now I have.
Some lovely recent photos,she looks great
Shoot for Kentucky. Come on. It'd be one heck of a derby.
Samantha Nicole has been retired and will be bred to Bernardini.

Worked out on Saturday, first posted since his breeders cup race oct 31... Dale says few more works and then alw race and long range goal of Arkansas Derby.
Donworth, 3rd place finisher in San Antonio yesterday, will make his next start in the Dubai World Cup at the end of March.
After big performances by Mohaymen, Songbird, and Mor Spirit, can the undefeated 2yo champ follow suit, and impress in his sophomore debut?Read More
I like fillies that win at 1 1/16 miles at CD as a two year old and then come back the next year to win impressively at other tracks. It's scary to think that her race on 2/5 was only her third lifetime race. I can't wait to see if she continue to progress. As of today, Terra Promessa is my projection pick to win the Kentucky Oaks. It doesn't hurt that she is a beautiful Curlin filly.
The third year old filly division is smoking this year. I am more excited about this division than the boys!
  • chasingmytale via Disqus · I agree. I've have stated for weeks that I believe this is the year of the fillies. · 8 hours ago
Shiffman and Zipse what did you guys think?
La nueva Zenyatta
Still unbeaten and untested, if ever there was a filly who truly had it all in front of her, it's Fox Hill Farms' Songbird.Read More

  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · The ( Owner ) has said thru out the last several ( Months ) that no matter how good Songbird is : That he will NOT put Songbird thru any of the Triple Crown races . Will Not Face The Boys . . . So people can just Stop THINKING about it . We just need to give this Owner respect for his Loss . Like It or Not · 10 hours ago
  • farrightwinsderby · This horse will run in the Santa Anita Derby then on to the Kentucky Derby, no doubt about it. They will not waste this horse in the Oaks, book it now. · 9 hours ago

  • Mary Z. · Winner was Kobe's Back. Blinkers on for the first time. · 9 hours ago ·
  • Mary Z. · Finish order: 1 Kobe's Back, 2 Salutos Amigos, 6 Cautious Heat--added blinkers three races ago, 5 Rocket(should have been lone speed)Heat. newly faster 6 was able to annoy the 5 1:08.70 for 6f. Gives me hope that the SA track will get faster. Fastest 6f for Kobe's Back who was still well behind the field early. · 9 hours ago ·
Mor Spirit flashed the kind of push-button acceleration that only good horses have, on his way to a measured 1 ½-length victory in the Grade 3 Robert B. LewisRead More

  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · Its a good FEELING when us people on HRN are able to hear the WORDS from Gary Stevens / Bob Baffert regarding the outcome of the Robert B Lewis : These connections have a far more superior mind set of how easy this Win was than from any of our mind set . It was a good feeling to see that Stevens never had to shift into Mor Spirit HIGH GEAR . This race actually turned out better than though . Baffert / Stevens exstreamly Pleased n Happy . That is a positive feeling for all those that might like Mor Spirit as a possible Derby threat 👍 This was the answer the connections were looking for . Its always a concern how a colt will return back to ( 3 yr old debut race ) looking towards the Kentucky Derby . Baffert is so good at not showing his Full Hand when others want to see it now : Fabulous Work Out Race 🏇 ! According to the horsemen around the stables Every Where in California : I would say ( 90% ) of those Horsemen will agree that this year Kentucky Derby picture looks Wide Open at this time more so than thru most recent years . Those are the WORDS by so many . Not just from my opinion . Any Preps Run In The ( 90s ) At This Time Have A Good Hand . . . Rather any of us people on this site believe it to be so or not . And for those that Dont Believe this to be the case , They have that right as well from the other ( 10% ) . · 9 hours ago

In what turned out to be the most thrilling finish of the day, favored Hoppertunity beat Imperative by a nose in Saturday’s Grade II, $500,000 San Antonio Stakes.Read More
  • Elhubbo · Hoppertunity just keeps cashing checks and ripping up my tickets. Very exciting race, hopper seemed to get low and stretch himself out right at the wire. Live I thought there was no doubt imperative won. Felt like I was pick pocketed. · 11 hours ago
Of the three entered so far I like Kasseopia. Likes synthetic and GGF is synthetic. Also ran second to Riker in the Gr.3 Grey Stakes at Woodbine.
