  • HappyHarriett via Disqus · What's the problem with journalism these days? Does every headline have to smear someone or something? Belle Gallantey won one heck of a race - she didn't STEAL anything. She WON, flat out, and won nicely. Do you introduce people who came from lowly beginnings as "that guy that used to be nothing who won MVP"? Why can't you write a really clean, pure, ethical piece about a heck of an upset, a surprising turn of events, a shocker, and give credit where credit is due without gutting Belle Gallantey and stripping her of her well-won glory? Go back to Freshman Journalism and this time, pay attention. · 5 hours ago
  • dani.pugh · Its not a smear, its racing terminology, quit taking it personally. The jockey stole it on the front end. That isn't a bad thing to say, especially when that is what happened. They use that word to say that a horse got away with soft early fractions, putting their competition to sleep. Oxbow did the same thing in the Preakness, and its called by many people stealing the race.That term is more a compliment to the jockey than a smear to the horse. The author, actually even says in the last bit of the article that while the winner did have it her own way, which isn't a lie by any means, Princess just either couldn't adjust or didn't fire. In the beginning he even compliments the ride. Like i said, its not personal, its a term, and a term more of a compliment to the jockey than anything else. · 39 minutes ago

  • airedale2008 · Nice memories of Saratoga, Johnnie. After conversing with Buckpasser about the history and legends that raced there, I had to visit my first track two years ago. It might always be my favorite. I knew I was at the right place when a large group of horses was crossing the street from the main track headed over to Oklahoma. As Red Smith said half a century ago about the graveyard of champions, “to get to Saratoga from NYC, you drive north for 175 miles, turn left at Union Avenue and go back 100 years.” · 1 day ago

  • Buckpasser via Disqus · URR. I have always enjoyed your posts and wish the best in everything you do, now and in the future. But we have asked the mods about further updates and have heard nothing. According to TC Glory, we are in the minority not the majority · 12 hours ago
  • airedale2008 · Note to HRN: I have been a member for three years now, since the time I didn't know beans about horse racing. Through the words of contributors like Buckpasser, Lazmannick, icyhotboo. footlick, travel_vic and many others, I've learned volumes about this sport, and have given all many likes. Some of these guys have been watching horses run for over 60 years, and are a treasure to hear their stories of past giants of the turf. Sadly, the product that you are now putting out is so customer unfriendly that you are losing your intellectual base that keeps me going and wanting to learn more. As far as I'm concerned, the new commenting is back, and it's not better, at all. For three years I've enjoyed scanning the screen to quickly find what the latest topics of conversation were. If this is as good as it gets, in a month I predict you will be seeing a lot less eyeballs looking at ads for TVG, mine included. There's still time to bring the site closer to back where is was, if you choose to. Just don't wait too long. · 3 hours ago

  • travel_vic · You would think the pin heads would learn: ALONE on the lead is the best angle in racing but I have heard them delude themselves: "Don't worry about THAT ONE, he/she will come back to us........He isn't coming back to us!! What is happening?" and then the race is over. I love front runners and bet them all the time. Even placing they are often the longest price on the board. · 6 hours ago

Be on the LOOK OUT for this one. Maybe twice a year does one see a two year old run like this one did Saturday in the 6th at Woodbine. Setting a solid pace, this one was headed by TWO others outside of it down the lane and rallied to easily run away from them a second time. When this one knows how to run he has some real potential ahead of him. Wow

From Gulfstream: "Atreides, a 3-year-old son of Medaglia d'Oro and half-brother to Dreaming of Julia, who won the 2013 Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) by 21 3/4 lengths, left quite an impression Saturday when breaking his maiden at first asking. 'To be honest, that's one of the best horses I've ever ridden," said jockey Edgard Zayas, who was carried to a 5 1/4 length victory by Atreides in 1:08.69. "That's a really classy horse.' Owned by Stonestreet Stable and trained by Marty Wolfson, Atreides, won for fun after going by the pacesetter and runner-up Back to Seattle entering the stretch. Atreides is out of Dream Rush, who won the Prioress (G1), Test (G1), and was second in the Acorn (G1)."

  • Dressage3295 · I've been waiting for this one to make his debut! It was quite the impressive win. Wonder where they'll be pointing him next. Maybe an allowance race and then a stakes race? · 9 hours ago
Why has she not worked since the Debutante?? Is she getting a break or is there a physical issue?
  • Goblin · Don't know, but she was pointing to the Schuylerville on 7/18 per Calhoun interview with BH right after the Debutante, so something must have changed. · 10 hours ago
