Hey ya'll, is it ok if FROSTED wins today?
Anything new on our precious Lady Eli? I hope she's still doing great ..
All eyes will be on American Pharoah as he takes on Texas Red, Frosted, et al in the Travers, but the undercard for the big race is worth getting excited about, as well.Read More

  • davidm9999 · How does Flintshire lose in his spot? Winner of over $5M, massive class drop, weight off, etc. He is supposed to win assuming a clean trip and a non-Jamie Spencer rider. Obviously he has many seconds but running second to Treve is like beating Big Blue Kitten and Slumber by open lengths. So not all runnerup finishes are created equal. Single confidently. · 19 hours ago

Doesn't get much love, when it comes to the upcoming Forego Stakes. His last race, you could put a line through it, because he had a bumping incident. Prior to that, he won 5-out of-6. He won the Oaklawn Handicap the same day as American Pharoah won the Arkansas Derby. They both ran the same distance at the Oaklawn track, and Race Day was .59 seconds faster than the media darling, AP. Great field, and he might get some decent odds. If this is to be American Pharoah's day, then the complement would have to be Race Day on Travers Race Day.
like to see a.p.in this one nice prep before his last race in nov
Foolish decision. He'll absorb an off the board beating when he could have been a winner of the Penn Derby.
The fact of the matter is that Upstart could run a big race tomorrow at Saratoga, the same kind of performance that could easily see him in the winners’ circle of the Pennsylvania Derby, but still only finish fourth in the Travers. Or who knows, maybe the champ will not run his best, and it will be ...Read More
I have heard the rumors that supposed to scratch in the Travers. I sure hope that those statment are not true. He stands an excellent chance to run 2nd. With Red and Frosted,to go along with Keen Ice. He will be going off at generous odds. Should presesnt nice value in the 2 spot.

On Saturday, Flintshire becomes a G1 winner at 12f/2400 meters on 3 different continents after he wins the G1 Sword Dancer Invitational at Saratoga. Book it.
Does anybody know her status?
Won this race last year with big payout. Have to include Falling Sky at the bottom of your SF. Go back and look what happened last year with Capo Bastone. It is an interesting race to to handi cap.
