Sky Kingdom for the win.
Love the Dance With Fate entry into the San Diego. I'll be rooting for the 3yo to take down his elders at Del Mar.

  • Cambridge_Butch via Disqus · Good write-up of your strategies. I agree that the multi-race bets are better in many ways, especially since virtually ALL of the stats we're provided in things like the DRF are geared toward the winner. For instance, the trainer stats at the bottom of a horse's running likes show things like ".20 FTS" and ".16 on turf". They don't tell you how many times that trainer finished second or third in those categories.... so picking winners is "easier" (nothing is easy in this sport) that deciphering who will run second, third and fourth. · 7 hours ago

Trainer Naosuke Sugai announced today that both Just a Way and Gold Ship are intended runners in the Arc this year. While Just a Way will go straight to the Arc with Yuichi Fukunaga, Gold Ship will prep in the G2 Sapporo Kinen (2000m) before leaving for France with Norihiro Yokoyama. Gold Ship may run into other Arc probable Harp Star in the Sapporo Kinen.

  • AndyScoggin · It sure does look like a strong field in the Haskell, but I every time I think that The victor wins by open lengths. Here's hoping we get a battle to the wire at the Jersey Shore on Sunday. · 1 day ago

With no lone ticket selecting all winners of Sunday’s Jersey Shore Six, the carryover sits at $39,189.74 for this Friday’s racing card. The Jersey Shore Six is a 10-cent base wager. To win the jackpot, a ticket must have the winner of the six races comprising the wager and be the only one to have done so. If more than one person has a winning ticket, they split 60% of the net pool with 40% going to the carryover.

This post has nothing to do with Horse Racing. It has to do with possibly Censorship. I no longer post here on a frequent basis,neither do many of the bloggers i came around to call friends. This has nothing to do with pro or anti new format. A decision has been made,and i must respect it. But i sometimes duck in to see what the pulse is about,and maybe someone i enjoyed chatting with is on. I have seen many complain that their posts were not allowed to air. They stated that there was nothing vulgar nor inflamatory about them. The people that made these statements,i believe. I followed them for months and they never did or said anything inflamatory. Earlier i responded to a feature story regarding The Fans sticking together . I said nothing inflamatory nor did i use abusive language. I took the anti to the authors stance. Yet it was not approved for prime time reading.I would be surprised if this made it through. Like i said,it is no longer about the site. I see many new names i never saw before. But one thing i notice and it speaks volumes. No longer do i see threads with 80 or more responses. Now you might get 10 if you are lucky. Then they jump to another topic. This is called relationships amongst the bloggers. That went out with the old.

  • jonquil · I've had a comment of mine deleted once, too, then I was able to repeat the same thing later and it wasn't deleted. I only know it was deleted because a message came up over the first one after I posted like I tripped some ridiculous filter in the system. I really miss being able to view back older conversations in the chatbox on the main page and it does seem that as a result fewer people are posting and everyone is posting less often. It's been inconvenient because if I want to post information about a race on the day, it sometimes is delayed for quite some time before it even posts and that's very frustrating. Now I find myself worrying a bit more if any of my posts will conflict with someone else who might've posted something similar earlier, but it just took 10+ minutes to show up. :/ · 16 hours ago
