According to trainer Wayne Catalano, Malibu Sunset, who was arguably the most impressive maiden winner of the meet thus far when easily taking a six-furlong maiden special weight on Sunday, Jan. 31, has exited his race well and been transferred to trainer Bob Baffert in California. The son of Bernar...Read More
  • Jason Simmering via Disqus · what are Baffert's plans for Malibu Sunset? · 30 minutes ago
Nyquist can't possibly win any scenario here. If he win's, it won't answer any "distance" limitation questions but if he loses, well.
Friday's 8th race (4:33pm PT) from Santa Anita is a $30,000 Maiden Claiming event for 3-year-old fillies dashing seven furlongs on the main track.#7 Betty's Joy (4-1) finished 2nd vs. similar course/distance foes Jan 8 and I like the rider switch to Gonzalez.

The field for the San Vincente: 1) Nyquist 2) Electrifying 3) El Charro 4) Denman's Call 5) Exaggerator 6) Sheikh of Sheikhs
I know nothing about breeding. Could some experts help me understand- isn't she too inbred to Pharoah to be bred to him? I see storm cat very close up in their bloodlines
She is the first mare bred to American Pharoah right before Valentines Day 2016.

I know that there hasn't been a comment on here for over 710 days, but for those that were wondering......I read on, I believe it was Equibase or Pedigreequiery (sp).com that Called to Serve is now doing quite well in a new career - dressage as of 2015. Apparently he's doing better at that job than racing. And to the user with the name Called to Serve, if you still have saddle cloths would you contact me at asonoble@yahoo.com. I am a serious collector of thoroughbred halters, cloths and shoes. I would be interested in, possibly, purchasing some of your items. Thanks and I hope my information helped anyone who was wondering.

I will start this comment by stating that I love Songbird. She is spectacular to watch and wins easily without apparently exerting much energy. However, Brian Zipse and Matt Shifman on this site both compared her to the immortal Ruffian. Ruffian is considered by many to be the greatest filly in history. While Songbird is certainly the best of her generation by a long way, a comparison to Ruffian is premature. When Songbird's career is over this comparison may be valid but as of now I believe that there is still a way to go.

  • Tumwater-Bill · Wow! Sounds like an incredible horse. I tried to look up Sun King on Equibase. Is he the gelding from Ireland that ran in over 70 races between 2005 and 2012? I really like these types of horses. In my opinion, they demonstrate the athleticism of the horse racing game. · 5 hours ago
