I can't even believe this! I absolutely love Honor Code (favorite 2 yr 2012), Tonalist (favorite 3 yr. 2014) Palace Malice (favorite older horse 2014) , they're all CHAMPIONS!! I also like Effinex (my 2nd pick 2013 Wood Memorial ), Lea, Normandy Invasion (my 3rd pick to Palace Malice 2014 Met. Mile), looks like a BC Classic field .
Doesn't look like much competition
Give it up for that work Palace Malice had this morning! Obviously won't know if that will transfer over to success in an actual race, but at least shows he's ready for a race. Whitney on Saturday or Alydar on Sunday against horses who haven't won a stakes race in 2015.
With his victory in the Jim Dandy (G2), Texas Red made claim to be the second best three-year-old in the country behind the Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah.Read More
She looked great in her debut! Interested in watching to see how she progresses. Sidenote: I tried adding her race above under Race Results & Past Performances but it's not showing up? I created the race and everything. How do I get it to show up there? I'm new at creating/adding info to the website.
Anyone know what kinda beyer she got for her classy debut? I would say mid 80's
  • Buckeye630 · Couldn't find a beyer, but her speed figure on Equibase (which I think is pretty comparable?) is a 92! · 2 hours ago

A Pick Six Carryover of $151,427 was triggered Saturday at Del Mar. The Pick Six on Sunday's card begins with Race 4.
The great run of races this season continues for Amazing Maria as she beats heavy favorite Ervedya, most recently seen winning the G1 Coronation Stakes, to win the G1 Prix Rothschild at Deauville. Amazing Maria has now won the G2 Duke of Cambridge Stakes, G1 Falmouth Stakes, & G1 Prix Rothschild in succession.
Shaping up to be the best EastCoast handicap race so far this year. Looking forward to see the final posts and ml odds on this one.
I'll be betting on a couple of morning line longshots Asserting Bear and Conquest Top Gun. Asserting Bear beaten favorite in his last two comeback races at this distance. Third start off layoff might be the charm and has tactical speed. Also, has stakes win on this surface. Conquest Top Gun likes this surface and he showed a new dimension in his last win coming from slightly off the pace. P. Husbands sticking with him and nice morning workout on July 25. He seems to be sharp and 12-1 ml odds isn't bad at all although I'm sure he'll be bet down to probably 5-1.
Looking to see if Wildcat Red can bounce back to his 3 yr old form. At 4-1 ml odds..has a shot at second start off layoff and slight drop in class. Loverbil looks like he's getting better as a 6 yr old. Stepping up in class but this his home track with 3 straight wins. Putting some money on him as well.
Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has the odds-on favorite in a big race for 3-year-olds on Sunday.Read More
  • jinlie01 · Gimme Da Lute should win this easily....dominated his last state bred race against most of these. · 2 hours ago
this Haskell is a disgrace , what that just found 750 k in a shoebox on Wednesday, right before the draw, 100% payoff money, And second I cant believe the weight are you kidding 122 lbs. I have never ever seen anything so manufactured in my life

  • https://www.facebook.com/john. · Monmouth Park officials were attempting to create a 3 race series for A-P with other tracks which did not materialize. The $750,000 was intended to be a part of the bonus had a series been established and A-P swept said series. At the time of the announcement, A-P was just arriving on Monmouth Park's grounds and the projected field only had 4 definites with Competitive Edge leaning toward the Jim Dandy, Upstart all but in the Jim Dandy and Pletcher's other 2 not being under consideration. With the purse enhancement, 2nd place is now worth more then first place money in the Jim Dandy and now the Haskell has an 8 horse field with the Jim Dandy only expected to start 4. That can be seen as a shrewd move. Also this is not a handicap. I'm not up in arms about the weights. · 1 day ago
  • Steve Holmes via Disqus · Huh? Any of the top three year olds could have entered... Any why not? 1.7 million purse and all...answer...nobody wants to face American Pharoah. His ONLY competition will be the BC and the way he is training I don't see any of the older horses beating him either · 2 hours ago
I'll go with a $20 trifecta 4 with/1,2,6..should return between $300-$400 on the bet.

From East to West, yet another exciting weekend of filly and mare horse racing is upon us. Here's the scoop on Rachel's Valentina's competition.Read More
  • elhubbo · After the Haskell this is my most anticipated race this weekend, and that's saying something because it was a crazy track surfin kind of day. Was hoping for 3-1 on Valentina, but that's only going to happen if she parades on three legs. In this mass Information Age it's amazing how knowledgable the average guy at the track is. Nothing flies under the radar anymore. · 12 hours ago

Trainer Mike Pender is just getting to know Paynes Prairie, having only purchased the 2-year-old son of Tale of Ekati a little over a week ago. But Pender said he likes what he sees in a colt that won a maiden race in his third start for trainer Steve Asmussen on July 4 at Belmont Park.Read More

I like this horse, I think he has good potential, but before I start to put him in the top tier of horse, I need to see some positive action outside of New York.
