  • 31Lengths · I'm almost positive she'll be selling as strictly a broodmare prospect. Ed said the one thing he never wanted to see was her running under someone else's silks. · 1 hour ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · In theory that sounds great. But if i for example i bid maybe the 5 Million it will take to get her,or maybe more. Something tells me that the person selling her or any other horse, would not have much of a say in what did . No disrespect to Stanco, i for one was very adamant and critical of them for going to the BC last year. But as far as this move goes,i applaud him and anyone else who owns the horse. I am sure he loves her and she will always hold a special place in his heart. He treated her well while owning her. From a selfish standpoint,she was very good to me at the windows. But all the correct things can be said in public. Bottom line is that they are cashing in their chips. This was truly a tremendous investment for them. · 49 minutes ago
With a decision yet to be made on where to run the very talented Sweet Reason, here are five reasons why she may better suited going in the BC Filly & Mare Sprint.Read More
  • zatt · I'm with you, Mike - for this year at least - Sweet Reason's best bet is the Filly & Mare Sprint. · 1 hour ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · Taking the purse structure out of the equation, i for one think that The Distaff is a no brainer . Running in the sprint will be symbolic of waving the White Flag. Based on the fillies pointing to the sprint,this filly is far from a lock or slam dunk that she will win the race. Based on the contenders at this point,i do not see her at less than 5-1 . Far from a confidence level. Anyone owning a horse with any trace of a competetive nature in them,will go for the gusto. Look at the contenders. Depending on the physical readiness of Beholder, Untapable comes in as either #2 or #3 on the rankings. Just this past weekend at Parx, S.R. ran a bang up 2nd to her on a surface that was holding speed. Although Untapable was not on the lead,she did get first run on a contested pace and held a nice lead turning for home. That was at 1 1/16th of a mile. Visually in the stretch,Sweet Reason was the more authoritive runner. So Leah and to the owners,if you do read HRN and still have not made up your minds. I doubt you are in this game to select Door/Option #2 ,When #1 is staring you in the face. · 24 minutes ago
to bad he broke his back in a riding accident
Regarding: Press release issued regarding sale of 1-2 interest of Palace Malice to Three Chimneys indicates he could return to training in 2015, Palace Malice to undergo vet exam 11/15. If racing sound, campaigns in 2015 w/ Pletcher. Upon retirement, @Three_Chimneys assumes ownership, should everything go right, HE'S COMIN BACK BABY!!!!!!! WHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

  • Goblin · I'm seeing a 50% interest being sold, with examination by veterinary panel on 11/15. If the bone bruise is completely healed, then that's a win/win situation for Dogwood and Three Chimneys. Interesting that they acquired WTC and now Palace Malice---I thought PM might go to Lane's End. Whether he's able to race again or not, Three Chimneys has made a favorable deal with the acquisition of 100% at actual retirement. · 1 hour ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · This is why Cot is a buisiness man supreme. He pulled the plug on racing to maintain his value in the Breeding Shed . When Cot did not get the deal he wanted,guess those rumors of multiple farms were far fetched. Cot took the best deal for 50 % of the horse. Now he will bring him back next year to race again. A very smart move in doing so. I am sure that there is already a contingency deal on the other 50% of the horse should he do "X". The positive here is that with a 50% partner, the insurance premiums will not be as hard to swallow. Expect the same kind of Racing Schedule next year, not as front loaded. Their main goal will be the BC Cup. Job well done Cot. Not to many manage the stables better than you. · 40 minutes ago

Thanks for that --too bad he looked awesome ---
Look Shared Belief can win the awesome again, classic, and clark and still has no shot at 3 year old honors end of story

  • Northport · If Chrome doesn't bounce back from his Penn Derby 6th place and Shared Belief wins the Awesome Again and Classic, SB will absolutely take 3 y/o honours. Eclipse voters have a very short memory, a horse that flashes brilliance at the end of the season can (and often do) trump the accomplishments of those made earlier in the season. Just ask Orb, Game on Dude, Princess of Sylmar, etc. · 20 hours ago

Funny, everybody's claiming shared belief to be so good but this guy never got mentioned.
2012 Kentucky oak winner Believe You Can to be offered at Fasig November sale by Airdrie Stud, in foal to leading sire Tapit.
This horse has no business in santa anita on breeders cup weekend. She has beat the same 4 horses in almost every race. Its almost like beating stable mates at this point.

  • buds · I guess the LA woman will tell the story. Good luck to her, Im thinking Beholder and Close the Hatches will b watching with curious eyes. · 4 hours ago
  • buds · of coarse she is fast she is outa Curlin, she should also be able to handle the dirt at santa anita (curling could run on pebbles). Still not sold on the 6.5 furlong decision perhaps the connections want 15-1 on Breeders cup day and want to bet the farm! · 4 hours ago

Wise Dan worked 5 f. in 1:01.20 over firm Keeneland turf this a.m. preparing for G1 Shadwell on 10/4. Splits: 24.80, 38; out in 1:15, 1:31.20
Shared Belief, in final work for Awesome Again, went 1/2 in 47.60 earlier this am at GGF. Vans to SA early tomorrow, per Hollendorfer.
The chase for the 3yo male championship is now as wide open as it has been since before the Kentucky Derby.Read More

  • buds · Andy- I agree, Bayern should go to the Mile, although I would cross enter because if the classic is lacking early speed to challenge him, we all see how that usually ends up! · 15 hours ago
  • Pick6Sam · I think the Turf Writers Association / DRF & Bloodhorse do not want to see California Chrome win HOTY and perhaps 3 year old champ. I'm sure they are all hoping for Shared Belief to win the Classic or say Bayern. After that red-faced rant about handicap children and basketball and the Triple Crown entree rules need to changed, yada yada yada from CC's part owner - Steve Coburn I don't see the horse wining any Eclipse award. Its a shame cause the horse don't know nothing but training and racing and it human connections no nothing about the history of the sport. When you rag about how things have been done since forever on national live TV, your in for it. I'm not a Kentucky hard-boot but that ticked me off some. · 4 hours ago
if wise dan wins the BC Turf he is horse of the year, due to colic and everything else
  • buds · good luck with that bid. Great horse, but not a HOTY performance. If he won the Classic (which I think he actually could) then he would have a chance. · 4 hours ago
