  • idavis via Disqus · California Chrome, by far, the most popular in 2014! To say that the owners actions or comments take away from this phenomenal athlete is absolutely absurd. Hands down, it is California Chrome who deserves this award in 2014, above all others. · 7 hours ago

  • travel_vic · Every year for as long as I have followed the late summer 2 y/o meetings (Del Mar and Saratoga) both produce some of these front end monsters. Until they look really quick ones in the eye and put them away, these are just quick early maturing horses. · 15 hours ago

  • tmallios via Disqus · As always it is about the future. Racing is about horses,so take any human element out of the equation. Yes the trainers develop the horses,but without the horses there is no game. The 2 stars by far have to be the two 2 year olds that not only won,but dominated their competition. I am talking about Competetive Edge and Condo Commando. The only question left now is. When will the first post or article in a media clipping. You know the one i am talking about. The one that urges Rudy Rodriguez to bypass the 2yr. old fillies and take on the Colts. · 4 hours ago

  • Mike in SB · I remember when aerodynamic silks were introduced back in the 1980's or 1990's. They were susposed to make a horse a few feet faster at 1 1/4 miles, which makes a difference when a lot of big races are won by a nose or head.They might have been an advantage for a while but all they really did was force everyone to buy the new silks and then the advantage was lost. The same would happen with new shoes, it would just force everyone to buy the new shoes which would probably cost a lot more than the current shoes. As a racing fan I just want all horses to have a level playing field, I want the best horse to win, the horses should all wear the same shoes and silks. The only technology I want to see directly affecting the horse is something that makes them safer, not faster. · 4 hours ago

  • travel_vic · Matter of fact I have NEVER met a single Equus whom I hated, but really, the only horses qualified to have the label GREAT next to their name, the few, the memorable, the ones who's names will last over time due to the level of their ONGOING and repetitive high level performances at jar dropping levels: Cigar and the Z girl and that's it. · 19 hours ago

  • tmallios via Disqus · Amino if the Private turfs anywhere near his best dirt races. Your Pal and feel good story Rene just may be needing a Polaroid after the race. After so many false alarms he shows up in the land of Brotherly Love. Have to assume that they know exactly how good he is on the green. With time running out to the BCC, i guess they made their decision.But WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In NYC today ,they are predicting scattered T-STORMS. iF The same is slated for South of the TPKE. Then he becomes a mortal lock. I would say that if it stays on the lawn and they give me 5/2, i can take a shot. Pedroza shipping in is a plus,doubt he has to much family in Pa. and is so anxious to see the Liberty Bell. Stone Cold in the feature. To talented to underachieve as he has been. Today may be the day at a price. See ya at the windows. · 1 day ago
