What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

18 entries remain at present for this year's renewal of the G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes, and very disappointingly, Epsom & Irish Derby winner Australia is not one of them. Coolmore have left Magician, Leading Light, & Hall of Mirrors, who would surely only be a pace angle for them. Probably the best of all the 3yo entries remaining would have to be Epsom Oaks winner Taghrooda and Epsom Derby 3rd Romsdal. I can remember a time when the King George was almost a given target for the winner of the Epsom and/or Irish Derby. Aidan O'Brien clearly has the best middle distance 3yo male in Europe in Australia, and why he has decided to dodge the King George with him befuddles me.
The $1 million, Grade 1 William Hill Haskell Invitational is just 18 days away and the field for this year’s 47th renewal of New Jersey’s top Thoroughbred race continues to take shape.Read More
  • shackleford · Sounds like a race which could set up for Medal Count, but it rarely seems like the pace falls apart in stakes at Monmouth. · 9 hours ago ·
  • https://www.facebook.com/john.karczewski.39 · A few weeks ago I was kind of scratching my head at who may enter and I was worried about the field size but with or without Untapable this is turning out to be a solid and entertaining bunch. I know I am excited. Monmouth is a speed favoring track and I would give the edge to horses on or just off the lead but the Haskell has played pretty fair considering the track. Many off the pace runners have won, even in recent years ie. Coil, Lookin At Lucky, Bluegrass Cat, Roman Ruler, Menifee, Point Given, Dixie Union. I would agree dead closers do not fair well, Rock Hard Ten, Dullahan, Golden Soul, Ice Box,Afleet Again all finished off the board, almost last. Paynter, War Emblem, Peace Rules, Lion Hart are the recent winners to lead at every call. When it comes down to it, regardless of running style the best horse usually wins this race. I think the winner over the last 10 years or so has been atleast the favorite or co-favorite in the wagering. · 55 minutes ago ·

Oh my his new pic at Coolmore is gorgeous!!! http://www.coolmore.com/stallions/shanghai-bobby/?farm_id=66
So, my friend and I have a friendly competition each year, where we pick 5 unraced colts and follow them through the year (And into the Derby trial season should they make it.) Would any of you fine folk here be interested in doing something similar? It's not for a prize, nor am I suggesting you pick the Derby winner RIGHT NOW, it's just for fun.

Hi rafirox...Since I'm officially a member of the stooge club. Lets talk football. Without Neymar and Thiago Brazil chances of beating Germany just got slimmer.

  • rafirox · My three teams are USA, Spain and Germany in order. Obviously US, lived in Spain for 5 years, and Germany for 2. I won't mind at all if Argentina wins as I am a big Messi fan. Really my two favorite teams are US and Spain, above all others. I picked Italy to advance, not England. England always disappoints, it seems, with Wayne Ronney and the roster. With Sterling up and coming, maybe things will change. Uruguay advanced there. Suarez had an amazing season at Liverpool, but he is a pain in the ass. Proud of USA's effort. Heartbroken (still) over Spain's. 2010 was great. Magical run for USA, wSpain won it all.. · 5 hours ago ·
  • Eventer1999 · Germany. I generally do not follow soccer/football, but seeing the Germans make it this far has forced me to watch a few matches. · 4 hours ago ·

  • travel_vic · Trakus: talked again to the tech and was wrong about the city (got it mixed up with where the umpire reviews in major league baseball go: New YOrk and these all go to Boston). Upon asking why that is the answer was "I don't know but they all do and we are in constant phone communication with them there throughout each card. Even if the signal comes from Anita or Belmont, it goes to Boston first). Second, NO two electronic grids (the sensor array that is the basis of how the system works) are the same due to signal interference with buildings of echoes off buildings. At Woodbine, due to the fact that the standardbred barn is directly behind and outside of the clubhouse turn, NO sensor towers are around that trun from the 7/8ths pole to the 3/4ths pole on the back stretch. Also, we are on the flight path of Pearson International airport, and often when a plance is directly above during a race, the entire array is lost for a few second and no contiguous replay is then available for that contest. Another more obvious thing is the the radio transmitter is in the saddle clott and NOT on the bridle as many of the unsuccessful DRF attempts at radio tracking were done. Therefore traks is telling you were the horse's MIDSECTION is not his head. · 5 hours ago ·
Beholder back in training. Does anybody with a DRF paid account have any details?

I have an account and all my brothers, children, wife, in laws, etc all use the same account. It is only like what $9 a month? If something beats Netflix, Sword, please let me know. · 5 hours ago ·
Not sure if any one is interested, but there is a nice signed Richard Stone Reeves print of Forego, Kelso and John Henry together at Belmont Park. It was done in October 1983 when Kelso and Forego led the post parade for the JCGC. It was the only time the three great geldings were together as Kelso died from colic shortly after. It is offered on eBay from a good seller for $185 which a very good price for a discontinued and limited print. It looks to be in excellent condition and is offered for a few days on eBay.,
on July 9, Daredevil worked 4F at Charles Town on Fast Dirt in :53.80 bg finishing 7/7.
  • Sullivan · This from being the 3/5 favorite in Belmont's first MSW for 2yo colts... wonder what went wrong · 12 hours ago ·

This is the race I'm chomping at the bit to see. Integral was very impressive in her G2 Duke of Cambridge Stakes win, and I gotta believe Sky Lantern will be much improved for her 5th in that race at Newmarket. The interesting filly to me in this race is Rizeena. Another Coronation Stakes like performance coupled with the weight for age break she'll get for being a 3yo could be just enough to tip the Falmouth scales in her favor, IMO. I would also say, it would really be nice to see Certify come back around to something close to what we saw from her as a 2yo and in her first start at Meydan in the Cape Verdi during the winter. She's sort of a sentimental favorite of mine, though I don't expect her to win the Falmouth Stakes. I'd settle just seeing her make the frame.
My picks for the G2 Princess of Wales's Stakes: 1st-Arab Spring 2nd-Pether's Moon 3rd-Dandino(think he got a really bad trip in the Hardwicke Stakes at Ascot) 4th-Hillstar.
Nathan early in the meet,keep an eye on Wes Welkers favorite trainer with a supersoni fast baby. Part of the name is clued in by an active Hall of Famer who rides.
After back to back wins in the Jorvick Handicap at York and Duke of Edinburgh Handicap at Ascot, and a perfect 4 for 4 record to date in 2014, Arab Spring will make the jump from handicap to patent stakes level on Thursday in the G2 Princess of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket(July). He's an overwhelming 3-2 favorite in the race with the international exchanges with stablemate Hillstar the 3-1 second choice and Dandino, Cavalryman, & Pether's Moon 8-1 co-third choices. If Arab Spring wins the Princess of Wales Stakes, and I believe he will, I would expect to see Sir Michael Stoute enter him in the G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes on July 26th. Stoute has never been shy about running more than one horse from his yard at a time in the King George. In 2009 he had Conduit, Tartan Bearer, & Ask in the field and in 2010 he had Harbinger & Workforce. I suspect he'll have Telescope, Arab Spring, and possibly Hillstar all 3 in this year's King George field, IMO.

  • ILuvTurfRacing · Thanks to all for the kind well wishes. Just happy everything didn't go the other way, and believe me icyhotboo, I plan on following the Dr.'s instructions to the letter. Have been fighting some med drowsiness from the med's since I got home though. Thanks again all. Always look forward to keeping the "conversation lively" on this web-site!! LOL. · 6 hours ago ·
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @Euro Trash & jonquil, In regard to Geoffrey Chaucer, it wasn't as much anyone verbally hyping him per say as it was his seeming to always be sent out as being the stable's #2 middle distance 3yo behind Australia of course, and he just simply hasn't produced anything close to that. In my view, even though he's had a string of 2nd place finishes, I personally think you can make a strong argument for Adelaide being O'Brien's second best middle distance 3yo right now, but TJMO. · 6 hours ago ·

Would love to see her in Coaching Club American Oaks then Travers in next two races. Her against Tonalist would be a great match up.
If any one is interested, his saddlecloth from the JCGC is up for auction on eBay. Price last time I looked was at $42 with about five or six days left in bidding
