What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Although I know very little about jump racing, I will pay respect when its due. The 11 year old gelding Hurricane Fly, winner of 21 Grade 1 hurdle races (that's not a typo), was retired from racing today. Montjeu really knew how to produce stamina and durability.
Chilean stakes winner Dacita may not have been well known to American race fans prior to Saturday evening's running of the Grade 2, $400,000 Ballston Spa, but she made a name for herself after flying down the stretch at Saratoga Race Course in the final strides to win by a nose over favored Tepin.Read More
  • Raymond Roberts via Disqus · The Form at the track for ANY race has the entries listed by pp's with a wealth of information...as any handicapper knows.Not so with Dacita the #4 horse in Saratoga's Balliston Spa's Stakes 8/29/15.All you had was a Grade I winner in Chile having run and won at a 1 1/4 in Chile in 1:56!!!!(no Timeform figure,no Thoroughgraph fig,no Ragozin fig!).Just the raw time....which if accurate(no small assumption)would command notice EVEN if they were running downhill.As well she was an unknown...a new shooter (and THEY must always in a broad breath be looked at)....We upon further inspection see the sire is Scat Daddy(enfuego the week of the Travers)...top trainer Chad Brown...Javier takes the mount...pay attention to the entries and who and what shows up in Travers Week...everyone is in town and they all want to win.I started the week with a $50 Jonathan Sheperd winner out of Five Star Day(Sheperd is predominantly a grass route trainer but here he was entered in a MSW 5 1/2 furlong turf event.Bells and whistles.My advice follow the meet daily but when the Spa gets to Travers week...prick your ears up because the value is there.And don't leave your knowledge of pedigree or precocity at home...have it in your pocket(Weaver $43 Exchange Rate/Carson Citty sprint winner 8/30/15. · 2 hours ago
NBC is Wrong - American Pharoah did not have it easy in the TraversRead More
The win early, sprint-oriented stallions will slip down the ranks as the miler-middle distance types start to make their presence felt. Read More
Grade 2 winner Zivo will make his return to the races on Friday at Saratoga Race Course in the $100,000 Evan Shipman at 1 1/8 miles for New York-breds 3 years old and up.Read More
hate to say it but I agree would of liked him the runin the jockey club but I say ewst him up for the big dance and enjoy all those wonderfull mares sounds like a good life to me!!!! he won the t.c. and the Haskell and he will be fresh for the classic I doubt he looses that one... but what a race that will be frosted Dortmund honor code and that mare oh what a mare she is beholder nice way to get a w and ride off in the sunset.so he finished 2 .he was tired you can see that wasent his a race but keen ice deserved the win ...
Cougar II spent most of his days at Stud at Stone Farm, right up the street from Claiborne in Paris Kentucky
He lost. stop making excuses. He wasn't the best horse that day. I love AP. Wanna see him in the classic against horses older than 3. See how well he does in a really strong field

Flintshire earned a 112 Beyer Speed Figure for his victory yesterday in the G1 Sword Dancer, the highest North American turf Beyer number at 1 mile or over since 2008.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Wow, kind of surprising to see Beyer go so large on a turf performance. He usually only goes large on the big performances from the conventional dirt horses. I'm curious though, I've wondered this for a long time, what formula do you use for conversion to convert a 112 Beyer over to what Timeform's # would be if this performance had been in Europe? · 7 hours ago
Thank you, I have been finding out a lot more info on him. All of this will go in his scrap book that I started back when he was racing. I have a poster of him and the Shoe framed.
American Pharoah will win the BC Classic and go out in style. I'm going to pay a mint to attend but I don't care.
Very very good animal with an obvious Achilles Heel: WET tracks
Triple Crown champion American Pharoah will parade for Del Mar racing fans between races Sunday, the next-to-last day of the track’s 40-day summer meeting.Read More
Thank you so much!
Now those two will make me a nervous wreck lol A Curlin baby and a Rachael baby in the same race It's like going to a tennis tournament juniors and being asked which kid will u watch if they are playing on different courts.
Looked like a true winner! Crazy how both Coz and Taco have been duds but she came out as flashy as ever with a strong win. Here's to the fillies!
  • Mark Kennedy via Disqus · Hmmm taco a dud. Don't think so he won his first race as well in even more impressive fashion · 8 hours ago
He was and still is my all time favorite race horse. I still have my scrape book I made of him and his racing carer.
This looks like it could be a pretty big field
The difference this time is the other trainers decided they wanted to win not just run for second
