  • https://www.facebook.com/diane · He looks big and shiny and ready. Much more so than just a week ago. He's coming back to form nicely now. I wish him a safe trip, a great trip and I hope to see him in the winner's circle. :) · 51 minutes ago
In the blink of an eye, Suffolk Downs' casino plan was voted down, and then its management set to close the venerable track's doors for good. Read More

  • Capper · Great story, Tony. I'm very sorry to hear about Suffolk & I can totally sympathize with the feelings you have. I was the same age when I learned the game from my father & our home track, The Woodlands, closed in 2008. · 1 hour ago

I guess that's the end of Suffolk Downs. This idiotic state giving the license to Wynn instead.

  • Sullivan · We only have three or so big breeding farms at the moment, the rest are mostly private owned horse people branching out. · 4 hours ago
  • travel_vic · why am I NOT surprised? The ultimate goal of a casino is GET IN THERE steal their clientele or, if we can't, make sure it closes down to spite them · 4 hours ago
standard is, if a horse wins at 11 12 or whatever, he can run the next year IF SOUND.
Tuesday's 8th race (8:20pm ET) from Presque Isle a $5,000 claiming event for fillies and mares dashing six and one-half furlongs on Tapeta footing.  #5 Sweet Argument (5-1) exits a smooth local $5k win at 6f. Gallardo and Ferraro are 2-for-2 together recently.         Play T...Read More

Multi-graded stakes placed, and earner of over $750,000, 12 yr old Porfido ran 5th on Saturday in a $7500 claimer at Canterbury Park and earned $145. I see he breezed today, 4F in :51, preparing for another race. 15-10-14 from 77 starts...Wish his connections would find him his retirement home.
  • Mary Z. · Do you know if they ever tried to breed Porfido? He is not a gelding. I'm hoping to see him again if he races at Turf Paradise. He'd be officially 13 if he runs in their closing day Hasta La Vista. See his two photos? I uploaded those a while ago. Tried just now to upload this photos of him from this year. Went through all of the usual steps and there are the blank photo "frames" No idea why it won't work. Have not been able to upload photos since the website change. · 4 hours ago
A recent article by Andy Scoggin(Matt Shiffman) on the Breeder's Cup Turf really peaked my interest coupled with some back and fourth on this thread about Euro's vs American horses prompted me to do a bit of research. In Breeder's Cup races on the turf Americans have 50 wins whereas Europeans have 42. Here is a breakdown. BC Turf :Americans 13 Euros 17, BC Mile :Americans 17 Euros 12, BC Filly& Mare Turf :Americans 8 Euros 6, Turf Sprint: Americans 6 Euros 0, BC Juvenile Turf Americans 2 Euros 5, BC Juvenile Fillies Turf: Americans 4 Euros 2. Despite common misconception of Euro dominance in turf races America has a better record overall and a better record in each race other than the Turf and Juvenile Turf. A common point made is that Europeans do not often send their best horses and that their 2nd and 3rd tier often come to the Breeder's Cup. The same can be said for the Americans though as America's most talented "top tier" horses often run on the dirt surface. Just for fun lets take a look at a list of some Euro A/B teamers which have run and lost in turf races; Olympic Glory, Excelebration, Moonlight Cloud, Excellent Art, Goldikova, Spinning World, The Fugue, Midday, Ouija Board, Banks Hill, Dylan Thomas. Carnegie. Now when the Euro's face up against America's "top tier" in the Breeder's Cup Classic(granted it is on our preferred surface) American has 28 wins the Euro's have 2. Here is a list of some Euro's whom have tried and failed in the Classic; Declaration of War, So You Think, Twice Over, Rip Van WInkle, George Washington, David Junior, Oratorio, Hawk WIng, Sakhee, Galileo, Giant's Causeway, Swain, Halling.
  • amino998 · Of the 10 Irish-breds Andy’s alphabet mentioned winning 12 BC Turfs, all won the biggest turf race in America on firm ground except Pilsudski, Daylami and St Nicholas Abbey who won over ground rated good. Daylami’s final time of 2:24.73 sounds firm to me :) · 5 hours ago
Simply put, the million dollar showdown Saturday at Parx is the best field of three-year-old fillies assembled in 2014, bar none.Read More

  • AndyScoggin · I, too, find Cassatt interesting. Larry Jones is so good with the fillies and this one is justing learning to be good. Untapable will be hard to beat. The Cotillion is a G1 race for good reason! · 8 hours ago
  • Mike in SB · This would be a big win for Stopchargingmaria, and I agree would move her to the top of the 3 year old filly division. Untapable will be tough though, although if Stopchargingmaria stays at 7-2 she gets my bet. · 6 hours ago
I don't care what the trainer says about the horse. I go by what the HORSE says about the horse. Getting earlier and earlier means "GIVE me some time off!" Always has probably always will. and, by the way, WHO is this "dude" person you refer to?
dont know why he cant get that distance.example travers 10.s.b wins going away

The legacy of the G1 Cotillion Stakes has been prominent for years, but a look at a list of the most recent winners shows evidence of just how strong this race has become. Havre de Grace, Plum Pretty, My Miss Aurelia and Close Hatches have stood in the Parx winner’s circle the last four years and th...Read More
