Dubai is looking better and better.
Dual classic winner and 1999 Horse of the Year Charismatic has died. The 21-year-old stallion, who returned to the United States from the JBBA Shizunai Stallion Station in Japan on December 4, 2016, was pensioned at Old Friends, the Thoroughbred Retirement Center in Georgetown, KY.Read More
  • Patricia King via Disqus · What a beautiful boy, will only remember you fondly. RIP over that rainbow bridge. · 9 hours ago
So tragic! R.I.P. Charis!!~ Yeah in that Belmont he was making a move for the lead & you could see the bad step he made. Unreal he was that close w/ the fractures & still 3rd,too.
How's Storming Candy doing? Saw the spill today... Ouch. Glad to hear jockey was okay too

Just Jenda was a very good filly for Larry and Cindy Jones. She won seven stakes races in a career that spanned 17 lifetime races over three seasons of racing. The daughter of Menifee went out a winner in 2010, winning the Grade 2 Molly Pitcher Stakes at Monmouth Park by 3 1/2-lengths in career fina...Read More
  • Andy Scoggin via Disqus · Just Jenda, like many of us, loved Monmouth Park as she won four races there during her career: the Serena's Song, the Monmouth Oaks, the Monmouth Beach, and the Molly Pitcher. I watched her win the Oaks standing right next to Larry Jones. I'm a big fan of both of them! · 10 hours ago
The original poem was written by Richard Lurie. Permission to use can be provided upon request. Please read to the end as there is an additional tribute to Charismatic and Chris Antley. Somewhere up in heaven, the track is always fast The scent of flowers fills the air, the infield lake's like glass The sun is always shining, gentle breezes always blow The turf is like an emerald sea for the grasses always grow Cappy calls the races and Pete Axthelm sets the odds As he saddles in the paddock, Jim Fitzsimons smiles and nods The fans enjoy their time here, and many smirk and laugh About some amusing story in the Morning Telegraph A hot dog costs a quarter and an ice cream costs a dime And the bleacher seats are freebies if you survive the climb The grandstand seats are painted in colors bright and bold No glass surrounds the clubhouse, for it never gets that cold. This might be old Jamaica, or it could be Lincoln Downs It might be Naragansett or Longacres that you've found It really makes no difference, it's not the name that counts As the jockeys finish weighing and prepare to meet their mounts The horses are arriving, so beautiful they are From the gray of Native Dancer to the blackness of Dark Star There's the tiny Northern Dancer, and the majesty of Swale And I'd swear that’s Kelso staring hard at Carry Back's long tail There's War Admiral being feisty, and his daddy Man 'O War And that's Citation in the paddock standing next to Alydar Secreteriat is glowing, his coat a fiery red And Nashua has just arrived, Mr. Woodward's at his head Here's Gallant Man and Fappiano, Dr. Fager and Shergar And that new colt, Prairie Bayou, bet he wonders who they are There's Roberto and Nasrullah, Native Diver and Count Fleet Walking towards them is Round Table looking like he can’t be beat Now the crowd turns towards the fillies, Ruffian and Go For Wand As they walk in graceful motion while the others just look on Following them is Landaluce, and behind them is Regret Primonette and Cicada enter moving as a set Senor Luro gives a smile, and Gene Klein begins to laugh As someone from the noisy crowd requests an autograph August Belmont seems to chuckle at something C.V. Whitney said Frances Genter acts embarrassed, her face turning a bright red The Iceman and Venezia get a leg up on their mounts They'll win their share of races but no one ever counts They'll always come home safely, as they enjoy their ride For here the fun's not winning, it's only that they've tried At this track no one tires, and no one is ever hurt As they strive to do their very best, on the turf or on the dirt No horse here runs on Lasix, and no whips are ever used Medication's just not needed here, and no horse gets abused As John Loftus mounts Sir Barton, and Earl Sandy, Gallant Fox Every fan along the apron, every owner in his box Sees a solitary figure walking slowly towards the track And they raise their hands together to tell him to go back At the gate stands Jeffery Lukas, a white bridle in his hand He can't figure out why he's not let in, he doesn't understand Then he notices the tote board, and on it is a sign It just consists of seven words... "Go home Jeff, it's not your time" (end of poem by Richard Lurie) It's been years since Jeff was sent home And many more have come here to run or roam Claimer or champion, there's a stall for all That's what we must remember when a favorite horse takes a fall By the weighing room door, in silks of yellow and green Stands a jockey looking down the track at a horse covered in sunrise's golden sheen The one horse he has awaited for oh so many a year Charismatic finally is here The Antman jogs down the track When he reaches his horse he vaults upon his back The horse nickers and prances While Chris Antley bends to hug his neck, Charismatic dances Together at last and forever; both healthy, healed, and whole Antley finally at peace, and

  • DarthKoalaBear via Disqus · I just saw the last paragraph.... they are moving to Lexington and will follow Chrome during his first year in Kentucky. How cool is that? As a huge Chrome fan, I have to say I am excited to know that once he ends his racing career, the fans will still be kept in the loop and see pictures of him and read about him in the future. Thank you! · 72 days ago
  • Pamela Mac via Disqus · The last paragraph is very sad. This person has not only stalked Chrome's owner she is now moving to be close to his horse. So very weird. · 13 hours ago

  • Bev via Disqus · I LOVE the California Chrome story. BEST story with a dynamite racing career of any race horse yet. Chrome was amazing in his late 2yr old campaign and on up till he retired. He's just an amazing horse. There has to be a story about him some day exactly how his life happened. I think about Chrome every day. What a journey he took us on. :D · 14 days ago
  • Pamela Mac via Disqus · So how much of this story comes from Perry Martin? Seems to me responsible journalism includes both sides. I really don't think the shpeel that Martin is media unfriendly flies. I think the media is unfriendly to Martin. Just smells of the same old same old. Someone simply was caught up in not verifying the story. Perhaps many someones. · 13 hours ago
