I like Frosted the way I like Firing Line and Mr Z. Horses that fight to the end. Hard to bet against any of those 3.
The New York Racing Association will raise the total purse for the 146th running of the Grade 1 Travers Stakes to $1.6 million from $1.25 million, contingent upon Triple Crown winner American Pharoah starting in the Mid-Summer Derby on Saturday, August 29, 2015.Read More
  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · Wowwww What cheap scapes : only 1.6 Million For one of the Best 3 yr old races in the world ~ the state of NY , and only want to consider raising the purse to only 1.6 : Doesnt surprise me . . . ( IF ) American Pharoah wins Aug 2nd : NY could easily raise that total to 2M . . . · 33 minutes ago

With his victory in the Jim Dandy (G2), Texas Red made claim to be the second best three-year-old in the country behind the Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah.Read More
I can't wait ! Stonestreet always produces great young horses . I will be routing for Rachel ' s Valentina , I love Rachel Alexandra and it's great to see her with Bernardini , from A . P . Indy the king of royal racing bloodlines .

I am looking to start August off on a winning this note with a couple value plays. As a college student, I don’t have the biggest bankroll when wagering so I got to make every dollar count. I’ve learned that just because you can’t take part in a $500 Pick 5 ticket or bet $100 to win, does not mean y...Read More
Hey everyone, I'm going to the track tomorrow but couldn't secure tickets. Does anyone know what time I should get to the line to GUARANTEE I'll get into the track? I know the gate opens at 9 and some get there at 5. I tried to call Monmouth but the employees weren't very helpful. Any info would be very greatly appreciated.
WOW! Breathtaking win! What a mare! Really hope they do consider the Pacific Classic with her. I wouldn't need a reason to attend the Pacific Classic, I go every year, but she would definitely add some panache to the race.
Possible for the Pacific Classic for her next start per trainer Richard Mandella. I like it!
WOW!! Richard Mandella just told TVG he may consider running Beholder against the boys in the Pacific Classic. How awesome would that be to see!!?
Tommorrows Haskell is the perfect example,as to Pletcher always getting destroyed in the blogs due to his poor record in the Derby. Todd is sending out 3 horses on Sunday in the Haskell. Most likely,if they ran a relay race,tey could not beat Pharoah. But on the record,it shows he is 0 for 3 in the Haskell. Same thing with the Derby and his poor ecord. He gets the talent to the big dance,but regardless who trains them. They just are not good enough to win the race. Yes some of them do come in with impressive credemtials. But that is also true about many others. In any Derby that he entered a horse,and to my best recollection. None of his horses were ever an overwhelming slam dunk 1rst or 2nd choice. But when the statisticians enter it into the record. It looks as though he is a bad trainer,with a terrible percentage.
She just toyed with the rest of the field. A spectacular race bro!!!
WOW WOW WOW!!!! Beholder dominates again!!!! What an amazing filly with pure talent!! She is poetry in motion!!

Beholder / Yahilwa
I don't think anyone can beat her this year. The maturation & talent are just going to be too much for any female in the country. I don't think I've seen her any better. Patient & devastating.
