What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

I'm new to posting on HorseRacingNation - "long time listener, first time caller" I guess. I was looking to write a Guest article. A "by the numbers" type look into American Pharoah's Breeders Cup Classic - as well as a brief look at other winners Breeders Cup Saturday. Does anyone know how I could write a Guest Article?

BREAKING NEWS: DRF'S Jay Privman reports that Dortmund, winner of yesterday's Native Diver Handicap at Del Mar, carried the incorrect weight in the race. Dortmund was suppose to carry 121 pounds in the race, instead, he carried 124 pounds, and still won by open lengths. The Del Mar VP Tom Robbins confirmed the error but nothing will happen. Just goes to show, despite carrying the wrong weight and spotting the field more weight, he still won with authority. Nothing will happen, just an error on Del Mar's part, but makes Dortmund's win look even better. According to DRF
Standing at Rising Sun Stallions, BAR
Definitely looking the derby fav at this point
I would love to see him run against Nyquist.
Moyhaymen looked great when he flattened out the last 16th.........wow. I think Gift Box will move forward & show more next time out........he was gaining ground & took home some money :)...flexibility, what a surprise.........
With the retirement of his celebrated stablemate, is Dortmund now the most exciting horse in training?Read More

  • Meydan Rocks via Disqus · Gary Stevens? That was a Point Given surprise to see him on the back of Dortmund. Where was Garcia. may I ask? · 11 hours ago
  • Johnsmith24 · Go Dortmund! The reason Dortmund is the most exciting horse in training is because there's no telling how good he could be! Look forward to watching him progress into his 4 year old campaign. Malibu Stakes next! · 11 hours ago
Chiropractor, a 14-1 longshot under Corey Nakatani, rallied into contention from between horses entering the stretch to overhaul even-money choice Om and then held off the determined challenge of March to win the Grade I $300,000 Hollywood Derby Saturday at Del Mar.Read More

You pay the bills, YOU get to name the get. Robert Murphy, a hall of fame standardbred breeder, called ALL of his Red Star ________. Some races there would be five different Red Stars to make the race call difficult to say the least. He improved the breed a lot however. at his OWN EXPENSE. Rather than shun these sources, we should just let them keep spending money and improving the breeds.
Contenders(BIG field may be smaller at post time) 6 Crowley's Law (GB) 1 Hard Not to Like 13 Baruta (BRZ) 3 Recepta 2 lines best ever: 1 Hard Not to Like 9 Filimbi 3 Recepta 10 Stormy Lucy Best sustained late moves: 1 Hard Not to Like 9 Filimbi 3 Recepta 10 Stormy Lucy In case they go nuts again and let the speed go, then these are to be looked at a 2nd time: 13 Baruta (BRZ) 1 Hard Not to Like 5 Curlin's Fox 8 Stellar Path (FR)
fun race as one rarely sees them go around twice. Get away day today after we had a big luncheon yesterday: going away for a lot of people who are leaving this week for most points SOUTH for the winter. Contenders 2 Melmich 8 Pender Harbour 6 Royal Son 1 Patrioticandproud. BIG celebratory event scheduled for the consistent (though often a plodder with no late kick) Pender Harbor who was a good one, great connections too whom I met at their Queen's Plate post position draw all those years ago. He made the newspapers here as he is connected with Long Run t-bred retirement people. 6 3 head out then 8 2 1 come visiting late. Probably be chalky however.
Another wide open turf stakes at "where the turf meets the surf" this Sunday. Like Recepta and Olorda.
Pretty wide open race...going with Tusk, Ninety One Assault and Rare Candy
Missed most of racing this Turkey weekend but looking to salvage something on Sunday with a few races including this one at WO. Going with the Royals...Royal Blessing and Royal Son.

  • Ruffianlover · At the top of the stretch I didn't think he had a chance. He looked like honor code coming down the stretch. Crazy that he won this in 1.37 and looked to be flying- yet honor code blazed home in 1.33 in the met! · 13 hours ago

WOWOW! I was hearing Iron Fist was good enough to upset Dortmund here but Dortmund gave him 9 pounds and beat him handedly. Iron Fist ran a 105 beyer last time out and Dortmund beat him well in hand by 6 lengths, curious what Dort's figure will be. My guess is in the 106-109 range. Can't wait to see his next race!
Firing Line, who finished closest to American Pharoah than any of his opponents to date when beaten only a length by racing’s newest Triple Crown winner in the Kentucky Derby, will miss the $350,000 Los Alamitos Derby July 4, trainer Simon Callaghan said Sunday morning.Read More

Dortmund's three year old campaign is apparently not over yet, Bob Baffert tells DRF's Jay Privman that should Dortmund come out of today's Native Diver win in good shape, he could make one more start this year in the G1 Malibu at Santa Anita opening day. Will shorten to 7 furlongs. According to DRF
  • HideousZippleback via Disqus · Will be interesting to see him go against Runhappy in the Malibu. Love watching Dort run. · 11 hours ago
  • Brian Shaw via Disqus · What a way to end his 3yo season with a win in the G1 Malibu. Dortmund would be scary at 7-8 furlongs going one turn. Runhappy looks to be his biggest competition, though I am not sure his new trainer will be able good for the horse. Really interested to see how Baffert will train Dortmund for this race, might see shorter and faster works than usual perhaps, who knows. · 11 hours ago
