  • jeff via Disqus · Not a fan of racing in a 7f sprint. Go to derby prep race and pick up some points to guarantee being in the show. Solid horse but don't know if I like him in the derby. Too many horses to contend with and lots of room for trip trouble for an off the pace horses. His win at breeders cup was awesome but still think he isn't a better horse than American pharaoh. · 1 hour ago
  • Mary Richter via Disqus · I do like to see everything broken down into baby steps as much as possible so starting off in a sprint is just dandy with me. It seems more fair to the horse. Best wishes to them. Thought he looked like the real deal in the Juvenile. · 7 minutes ago

Northwest Farms owner Jerre Paxton dies at age 76, he owned stopshoppingdebbie and others.
Watching Texas Red's Race in the 2014 Breeders Cup Juvenile, I get really excited, and I can't explain why. I'm a average discerning horseman, but something's telling me this one here, is a very special individual. Really excited on how's he's training, and the desormeaux duo are doing really well with him. Expect nothing but good things from this colt on the 2015 Triple Crown Trail.

  • amdaman via Disqus · How's this guy still riding horses? The first report of him being caught with a buzzer was in 1993. After that he's been repeatedly caught, suspended for months, or banned for years at some tracks, but then he just moves his business to another track. He's been charged with cruelty to animals on several occasions; one of them was for using a nail on a quarter horse and another for whipping a horse on the face. Asmussen uses him a lot, and surely he knows his reputation, probably even condones and encourages what he does. Chapa's already served time in jail, 10 days for a misdemeanor pleaded down from a felony charge for torturing a dog. Hopefully there'll be no plea deals this time around. They should make him an official felon so he can ride no more. · 14 hours ago

  • Mary Z. · DRF, Dan Illman November 2013 Shared Belief blog: CROP REPORT bled when winning the Rushaway Stakes in his most recent start on March 23(2013). He then came down with an injury, but the connections noted on Twitter that he started back training in early October. Twitter is a pita to search. Suggestions/opinion: Try European stud farms. Could have been too injured(or worse) to return to training, to go to stud, to be sold. Also, a pita to google because the term "crop report" is also a horse racing term and an agricultural term. Narrow your google searches by choosing custom range for the dates. You can add Thoroughbred at the end of your search words. Or, try adding the stable's name to the beginning of your search words. GL. Too pita for me and (opinion) I do not think he will be back racing. · 4 hours ago
Where has this horse gone? Does @hrn-9782790bc99b8ff88dbdd5f303079947:disqus know anything about him?
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @igugu1989, If you haven't already noticed the card on the stakes tracker, Hunter's Light will be back in action at Meydan on 1-29-2015 in the last race on the card which is the Emirates Global Aluminium Potlines Trophy(Handicap) for horses rated 95+. I suspect this is just a starting point toward bigger races later on at the carnival for Hunter's Light, IMO. · 4 hours ago
Grade 3 winner Sabercat has been retired from racing and will debut at stud in 2015 at Averett Farm in Loranger, La., for an advertised fee of $3,500. Article on DRF
There's still time to reserve the name Conquest Bold :)
Bold Conquest, 2nd in the Iroquois and 3rd in the Breeders' Futurity last fall, is on a good work schedule at Fair Grounds. Asmussen said his 3-year-old debut could come Feb. 16 at Oaklawn in the Southwest Stakes. According to DRF
IF this one was one of the best horses in the WORLD, that itself is a well guarded secret.
  • tmallios via Disqus · Amino the more i listen to Jaime Osbourne talk conceptionally,the more i love this guy. He knows that the Daily grind and training get them ready and not just a race. I love his theory of keeping the gun ready for the big races and not wasting bullets. Many in our country can learn from Jamie. Not saying this is the path to take with all horses. But when you have a Stud,capitalize on the moment. Look at Lea this year,off 1 year and ran huge without a prep. Congrats Jammie. · 6 hours ago

  • tmallios via Disqus · You are correct Zatt, but that was because of his Dad Ceaser Kimmel. He had a reputation for off the wall and eccentric names. I knew Cesar very well as Toner trained many of his horses in partnership with Ron Nicholson. I do not know of Cesars current status,but he was a charecter(in the most complimentary way) in the Racing game. · 6 hours ago
