From East to West, yet another exciting weekend of filly and mare horse racing is upon us. Here's the scoop on Rachel's Valentina's competition.Read More
  • elhubbo · After the Haskell this is my most anticipated race this weekend, and that's saying something because it was a crazy track surfin kind of day. Was hoping for 3-1 on Valentina, but that's only going to happen if she parades on three legs. In this mass Information Age it's amazing how knowledgable the average guy at the track is. Nothing flies under the radar anymore. · 6 hours ago
Beholder put on a show in the Grade 1 Clement L. Hirsch, easily leaving her rivals in her dust in her 7th career Grade 1 victory.Read More

Trainer Mike Pender is just getting to know Paynes Prairie, having only purchased the 2-year-old son of Tale of Ekati a little over a week ago. But Pender said he likes what he sees in a colt that won a maiden race in his third start for trainer Steve Asmussen on July 4 at Belmont Park.Read More
I like this horse, I think he has good potential, but before I start to put him in the top tier of horse, I need to see some positive action outside of New York.
Frosted impressed me as much as a second possibly could. If the race was any longer Frosted would have caught Texas Red. Still believe 10 furlongs is Frosted's ideal distance and believe he's basically built to win races like the Travers and BCC.
Ok lets hold on, all you Beholder band wagon jumper. No one has liked this horse more than me, I seem to remember a hell of a lot of Princess fans telling me who was the best female in the country, and then came Close The Hatches was going to beat her. bla bla bla. She could win the Pac. Classic due to a lack luster field (although Hoopertunity is pretty good) but the BC Classic, thats a pretty tough task. With the class of older males out there, that would be unbelievable, aint gonna happen! How about she aims at retaking the BC Distaff, Untapables pretty good and is 3 for 3 at Churchill. She is, IMO at the top of the distaff division, a torch pasted from Royal Delta, and Zenyatta before that. Either way Im glad to see her healthy and at the top of her game.
Got to say congrats to Texas Red. He managed to hold off a really really good colt in Frosted and for that he deserves credit. Over the 10 or even 9.5 the outcome would have been different but this race still proves that Texas Red is a great colt I'm just doubting his ability over the classic distance.
Good Luck tomorrow Untapable. I'm saying prayers for you. You go girl. 🏇
Really what else is left to conquer? Pacific classic then if all goes well, BC classic.
Zipse at the Track was there to capture the scenes from West Virginia Derby Day at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort.Read More
unbelievable line up. Effinex sure doesn't get any respect
And he looked so good in the post parade. Heartbreaking. Condolences to his connections. RIP big fella.
With his victory in the Jim Dandy (G2), Texas Red made claim to be the second best three-year-old in the country behind the Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah.Read More
You had the heart of a Champion...RIP
I like Frosted the way I like Firing Line and Mr Z. Horses that fight to the end. Hard to bet against any of those 3.
The New York Racing Association will raise the total purse for the 146th running of the Grade 1 Travers Stakes to $1.6 million from $1.25 million, contingent upon Triple Crown winner American Pharoah starting in the Mid-Summer Derby on Saturday, August 29, 2015.Read More
  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · Wowwww What cheap scapes : only 1.6 Million For one of the Best 3 yr old races in the world ~ the state of NY , and only want to consider raising the purse to only 1.6 : Doesnt surprise me . . . ( IF ) American Pharoah wins Aug 2nd : NY could easily raise that total to 2M . . . · 7 hours ago

I am looking to start August off on a winning this note with a couple value plays. As a college student, I don’t have the biggest bankroll when wagering so I got to make every dollar count. I’ve learned that just because you can’t take part in a $500 Pick 5 ticket or bet $100 to win, does not mean y...Read More
