2014 Woodward Analysis: Norumbega is sitting on a big one

When Moreno earned his first Grade 1 win four weeks ago, he did so at odds of 10-1. Much like the Whitney, I believe Saturday’s Grade 1 Woodward, run ...

Best Horse in America since "Big Brown".
  • Mike Relva via Disqus · You're high with your outlandish statements. · 22 minutes ago
Looks like Jackh41 is her owner. Maybe a reason for him to be enthused.
  • jackh41 · absolutely! and proud of it, best UPCOMING filly I've owned in 45 years in the game! · 41 minutes ago
These opinions stated as fact are out of line. Even a preface of "In my opinion--- is more acceptable.
  • amino998 · Peevish petulance rears it's ugly head. · 1 hour ago
  • Mary Z. · Consider anything I post here to have an "imo" unless it is a link to an article. Anyway, I think Vyjack could do okay in this race, better than his last race, but of course Clearly Now is my lovey-dovey favorite sprinter. I'll try to come up with a cyber-super before post time. · 50 minutes ago
Stopchargingmaria continued her emergence as one of the nation's top 3-year-old fillies with a win in Saturday's Alabama.Read More

What's next for the ol'boy?
French raider Fintry runs her record to 4 wins in 5 career starts to date for trainer Andre Fabre and Godolphin SNC with a win in the G3 Atalanta Stakes at Sandown Park in the UK. Very talented 3yo filly.
  • icyhotboo · I don't like closers in a pace less race at Saratoga. Even with all the xmas horses blinking I doubt a half in less than 47.0 and that's what's needed to beat Moreno. Only two horses have early speed 4/2 it's their race to lose. I'll put Long River in the mix also. Paco Lopez? I didn't understand that move last time out unless the 3 spot was the place to be in the stretch. GL · 10 hours ago
  • travel_vic · contenders before scratches: Doubt, unless it rains, that there will be the bias Moreno enjoyed last out. 2 Itsmyluckyday 4 Moreno 3 Micromanage 1 Romansh overall 2 4 3 8 5..Top two here could race one another into defeat · 1 hour ago
Any news on how he is doing at Adena?
Big Brown the Barry Bonds of racing...nuttier than a fruitcake as a result of the Winstrol
I just notice that on the HRN POWER RATINGS,that this horse is rated 10th. I could care less if voters have the right to vote for whoever they want. But HRN if you want a legitimate racing site,then rename your list header to "OUR PETS". By calling it a Power Ranking,you are showing a blatant disrespect to those that actually follow the game with a serious perspective.

pitifully over-matched animal running again? Too bad
It's not what she ran in, it's how she won them. Keep ur eye on her for the next 2 months, maybe you'll see what others see, but I doubt it.
Trainer Barclay Tagg issued an upbeat bulletin in the lead up to the Grade 1, $500,000 Forego, in which his protégé, Confrontation, will make his graded stakes debut.Read More
I thought Dutrow said he wasn't going to run in the Hopeful, but, after rumors he might scratch,it looks like he is running, hope he runs well
Give this guy credit, Curlin has had a remarkable year both on the track and off the track, Curlin gets inducted into the hall of fame this year, he's one of the top sires of 2013, he's got stakes winners from Palace Malice, to the undefeated Stopshoppingdebbie,to Moulin De Mongin, to Classic placed Ride On Curlin, to very promising two year old La Grange, and not to mention the highly anticipated debut of Jess's Dream soon, it seems like every curlin horse is either winning or running in the top 3, wether it's dirt, turf, or synthetic. He is one of the greatest of all time on the track, and now is spreading his legacy to his offsprings, hope he continues to have success and and his runners make him proud.

  • Roses4U · Part of the best crop so far this century his nemesis during the three year old campaign is nosing him out. Hard Sun as a sire has proved to be a pleasant surprise. · 4 hours ago
Among the Lady's Secret entrants Labor Day at Monmouth is the Gazelle winner, and Kentucky Oaks runner-up, My Miss Sophia.
He was the best Horse for decades, and only injured could stop him. He was unstoppable in 2008, and would of won the triple crown but for an injury, and he would of definitely Won the BC Classic.
A little more than three months removed from emergency colic surgery, two-time Horse of the Year Wise Dan is set to make his return in Saturday's Bernard Baruch at Saratoga.Read More

  • Jonah5110 · Since curlin was horse of the year in 2008, the last 5 horses of the year were a 3yo filly (Rachel Alexandra) a 6yo mare (zenyatta) an older filly (havre de grace) and this horse on 2 occasions. The classic division is in a bit of a slump. I think wise dan would do well on dirt, though. · 1 day ago

Southern Honey's an overlay if she gets her morning line or higher. I'm willing to forgive her last out, and like the cutback. Thirteen Arrows seems to be in good form, and Delaware shippers have been doing well of late. Could get the best trip from the rail if Rosie sits her behind the front runners. Southern Honey-Thirteen Arrows-Tea Time-Miss Behaviour
Clearly Now looks like a lock against this field with his training progression since that dominating win in the Belmont Sprint. Only question is will he like the Spa surface. I simply feel this isn't Palace's preferred distance, so that opens the race up to some value. Zee Bros has an upset chance. Clearly Now-Zee Bros-Falling Sky-Big Business
