  • bradleysteffens via Disqus · Nice list, but "something on the female side" for Calculator? You mean something other than a Breeder's Cup Classic champion and (still) track record-holder at Woodbine for 1-1/4 miles? The experts said Calculator's grandpa couldn't get the distance, but he managed to hold off Louis Qatorze and Cigar to win the BC Classic despite a wide trip. · 3 hours ago
With odds-on favorite Acceptance spent with a quarter mile to run, longshot Mischief Clem was ultra-game in fending off Pulmarack through the lane, as he prevailed in Saturday’s $250,000 California Cup Derby by a head under Kent Desormeaux.Read More
  • Larry via Disqus · I couldn't believe the odds of Go West Marie. She's a a good 4 year old and from open company to restricted race, her odds should have been lower. · 3 hours ago
Able Friend makes it 3 straight wins and back to back G1's winning the G1 Stewards Cup barely breaking a sweat under a hand ride by Joao Moreira. This year's renewal of the Stewards Cup upgraded from a domestic Hong Kong G1 to international G1 status.
  • Ambitiousd · I wonder what the next move will be? Staying in Hong Kong for the owners is like printing money, but this type of talent is begging to go international. · 3 hours ago
He's stamping himself as the finest turf miler in the world. Amazing performance in the Stewards Cup. What a racehorse.
I believe this pretty boy is available for adoption! https://www.facebook.com/rerunthoroughbredadoption Hope he finds a lovely home and a new career

After winning the $150,000 Hutcheson (G3) at Gulfstream Park, trainer Michael Tomlinson said he lost his identity, but his horse Barbados, in scoring his third straight victory, may have found his.Read More
1-2-2 in the Triple Crown series. Many think it should be 1-1-2. Superb performances from this talented filly.

Citation had been an exceptionally good 2-year-old champion, but there was no reason to expect anything more from him at three that was expected, say, from Pavot or Bimelech, both of which were unbeaten at two. Citation’s first two starts at three, however, suggested a greatness the Turf had not seen since Man o’ War… Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons, who has seen Hamburg and Sysonby and Colin and had trained several nice horses himself, including a couple of Triple Crown winners, was asked what he thought of Citation: "Up to this point, Citation has done more than any horse I ever saw." He paused: "And I saw Man o’ War." - From Kent Hollingsworth's The Great Ones
After his work today, trainer John Shirreffs said Cozmic One could make his debut in the next month. Owned by Jerry and Ann Moss, who raced Zenyatta, Cozmic One will need additional works and gate schooling before he runs. Article on DRF

  • Sara Maguire via Disqus · I personally wouldn't even consider him a potential starter until he has stretched out to at least 6 furlongs... the shortest I have ever seen a dirt maiden special weight is 6 1/2 furlongs · 9 hours ago
Very impressive run today, I love this family. What a broodmare Delta Princess was, she deserves an Eclipse award for outstanding broodmare!
  • Jbyrnes1 · Absolutely, it's such a shame that we lost her in 2014, she is such an amazing broodmare, her last foal is a colt by Street Cry who is now a two year old, he should also be a good one to watch · 10 hours ago

  • Mary Z. · I watched all of the trackus videos. Then, I see there is a video link here. GP online does not make it easy to watch replays. They should have the replays easily available like calracing does. anyway, he did run wide. Could be good. So far, he is. · 10 hours ago
Any babies racing this year? What happened to her Bernardini foal, now 2?

  • jockey2be. · LOVE Upstart!!!!!Super nice run!!!!!Definitely at/near the top of my Derby list! · 11 hours ago
  • hannahWTC1 · The top 2 both ran great! This year's 3yo crop is looking pretty incredible! I think Frosted has lots of room to improve and catch up with Upstart. If you look at last year, there was several 3yo's early on who were really running fast, but all of them were out of the picture come Derby Day. If I were McLaughlin, I would be pleased that my horse is just steadily improving without being precocious. These monster efforts tend to knock out young horses, even if it appears like they are doing it easy (i.e Cairo Prince), and it might be better to just run steadier and keep improving, that way you'll be running this kind of effort come Derby time. It is hard to keep the form Upstart showed all the way til May · 11 hours ago
