What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Nathan, keep a close eye on him at the Spa today and all weekend. Looks like he is loaded for some serious damage. Obvious horses today....Alma Maters of Indy Colts last 2 QBs'(and future Hall of Famers). Stanford and Tennessee. In the 5th he is there with 2 good ones. Second Timer Gangster ,just may be anything. Hopefully today is the day at big balloons. Finally to close out the day,Old Pal the Mountain Climber in the 9th.
Six days in the books, and John Velazquez already has three wins awarded to him, by DQ. With that kind of luck, he should be the runaway winner of the jockey title.
I never realized what a small thing an amino acid 998 is, until 3 years ago!!!
We are grateful, humbled, and more than a little overwhelmed to announce that our little racing website has reached 200,000 Facebook fans as of yesterday!Read More
The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the eighth straight racing program at Gulfstream Park Thursday, leaving a $78,130.25 carryover jackpot pool for Friday’s 10-race program.Read More
  • elhubbo · I can admit it, no matter how much folks are giddy about Saratoga and Del Mar, I'm a Gulfstream junkie, 80% of my wagering dollars are bet there. I certainly get lured away by other tracks for some of these amazing all stakes cards, but · 2 hours ago
I'll be sticking with Bent On Bourbon and Tommy Macho (since he was scratched out of the Curlin Stakes).
A Pick Six Carryover of $53,419 was triggered Thursday at Del Mar. The Pick Six on Friday's card begins with Race 3.
1st - MARCH 2nd - Requite 3rd - Bluegrass Singer . I wish Blame Jim or Grand Bili were here. I think they both have chances to go to King's Bishop , etc along with March, Competitive Edge .
Like both Pletcher horses but one of the two could go to the Curlin. I like my top 4 with Stanford/BentonBourbon/Iron Fist/Madefromlucky I do see War Story possibly making a good run.
"LOL - laughable hypocrisy "
Does anyone know where Stanford or Tommy Macho are running ? If Stanford isn't here, then I want Iron Fist or Madefromlucky .
  • xword15 · Looks like Tommy Macho just scratched from the Curlin today with Tekton and Stanford still active for that race. Looks like you have Tommy Macho to go with on this one. · 3 hours ago
Al Shaqab Racing owned fillies fill the first 2 slots in the G3 Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood, as Amy Eria, shipped over from France for trainer Francois Rohaut gets the win with the Richard Hannon Jr. trained Osaila finishing 2nd.

  • cugel the clever · Unless, God forbid, he's injured, this will be nothing more than a highly paid bullet workout for AP. If AP could easily beat the absolute best 3yo's in the TC races, what makes anyone think that he won't do the same when all of the best next-tier 3yo's are either on the shelf or racing elsewhere (Frosted, Texas Red, Dortmund, Firing Line, Carpe Diem)? · 7 hours ago
  • cugel the clever · LOL - laughable hypocrisy coming from Monmouth officials and Zayat : "we did this to honor the horse, American Pharoah.” NO, you did it to attract the most talented and beloved horse since Zenyatta to your track, and to therefore make an enormous profit from increased betting, attendance, and associated sales. “The Haskell is special to us. We love Monmouth. I want everyone to have the greatest day on Sunday.” NO, you did it because Monmouth offered you a wheelbarrow full of extra purse money to come to Monmouth and win without breaking a sweat against non-entities instead of running for less money against a much tougher field at Saratoga. It's obvious that this purse increase was not a last minute decision. It's been in negotiation between Monmouth and Zayat ever since AP won the Belmont. Nothing wrong with that... it's a sound financial business decision by both sides and both will benefit at the expense of horse race fans who would like to see another match between AP and the next best 3yo's. But please don't tell lies just to make you seem like good guys. You sound like politicians. · 7 hours ago
Conceding weight all around, Muthmir holds off the fast charging Take Cover by a head to win the G2 King George Stakes at Goodwood. The win was Muthmir's second G2 win this season(G2 Prix du Gros-Chene) to go along with his 3rd place finish in the G1 King's Stand Stakes at Royal-Ascot. He's having a very decent season this year in the sprint division.

Going with Salutos Amigos (been solid since last Nov with exception in Dubai. C. Velasquez seems to get the best out of him), Favorite Tale (liked his last win against solid sprinters. Seems like he's healthy again) and Rock Fall (can't ignore this up and comer. Hasn't done anything wrong since his maiden debut).
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · Favorite Tale is the controlling speed, his last he was aided by the bias of the track. With this field being much tougher, hard to imagine he can last on the front without slowing it down considerably. If the Big Beast is ready, he's the main danger to Rock Fall and loves the track (2 for 2). This is also a big step up in class for Salutos Amigos. Should be closing late.. · 5 hours ago
After running some very creditable races at the end of last season and early this season(3 straight 4th place finishes in the G1 Moyglare Stud Stakes, G1 Prix Marcel Boussac, & G1 English 1000 Guineas), Malabar finally gets a much deserved win over the boys at Goodwood, pulling comfortably away from Kool Kompany inside the final furlong to win the G3 Thoroughbred Stakes.
Dubday makes history becoming the first ever Qatar trained horse to win a race in Great Britain, beating heavily backed The Corsican by 3/4 lengths to win the G3 Glorious Stakes at Goodwood.
Can't ignore Texas Red...ran a solid comeback race...and he will be rolling as long as there is pace to run at. It seems from his last bullet work...they want him closer to the pace in the early going.

Poll of the Day

Who will win the Vanderbilt?

  • Viva Majorca
  • Favorite Tale
  • Clearly Now
