What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Since 2000, horses that have won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile are a dismal 12 of 52 in starts as a three year old. This includes two loses by this year’s reigning winner, Texas Red. He will be looking to buck that trend in this weekend’s Jim Dandy. History, however, is clearly not on his side with Str...Read More
I don't know what to think of him running in the Haskell or for that matter any top level stakes race. Sure he's collecting checks at the top level but the bottom line is he's still eligible for a NX1 allowance. I realize his connections probably think he has a better chance at getting 2nd place money in the Haskell then trying the more competitive Jim Dandy overall. I'm not so sure he can get 2nd money with his style over that track. It's like mixing oil with water. Try giving him a race in an allowance where he can maybe get a win, then put him back in with the big boys.
Toormore holds off a strong challenge from Dutch Connection in 2nd and Safety Check in 3rd to win the G2 Lennox Stakes on opening day of the Goodwood Racing Festival. His 1st first win since he won the G3 Craven Stakes in April, 2014.

With the three-year-olds returning to the spotlight in the Jim Dandy (G2) and the Haskell (G1), take at look back at the Kentucky Derby runners.Read More
According to DRF.com Tommy Macho is the likely sole Pletcher runner in this race...so with Stanford out and Tekton possibly running in the WV Derby...looks like a small field of 5 with Tommy Macho and Smart Transition being the favorites. Can anyone confirm if Tekton will be running the Curlin Stakes or WV Derby? Thanks!

  • Jbyrnes1 · My opinion, Honor Code's run in the Alysheba is a complete throw away, I watched the race again on replay and his body language showed he was not a happy horse. He wasn't taking to the track and didn't appreciate the dirt in his face. Also, looking at the stats the whole card that day. The Churchill Downs surface was playing to speed and mid pack runners this day and not to closers like Honor Code. So I think the Alysheba is a throw away race. Looking at the possible entires, I think Honor Code will get the pace he needs to run with. There will be some speed with Liam's Map and Moreno going for the lead, HC's works going into the Whitney have been sensational. He maybe in the best form of his career right now and his stature will grow if he can add the Whitney to his resume. · 15 hours ago

  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · Too bad Frosted, Japan and Texas Red aren't going after the Triplecrown winner. I don't know if they're going to what they see as a chance for the win money or if they fear him or both. This should still be a fairly entertaining race. I hope to see Materiality bounce back, and I think Frammento could surprise some people that plan to make a wager. · 1 day ago

What a turn of foot by Shore Runner....blocked inside angled out and came like rocket in the final 16th...he looks ready to move up the ranks to graded stakes company. Didn't have him here but looking forward to seeing where he runs next.
Anyone know what kinda beyer she got for her classy debut? I would say mid 80's
Carpe Diem had so much potential; for it all to end with an extremely disappointing middle of the pack finish in the Kentucky Derby, is such a same.Read More

  • be082 · A good horse most years, but a pretender in the current environment. He just wasnt going to beat the top shelf and he doesnt appear to want the money distances and isnt fast enough to be a sprinter. I dont see where this horse beats the good fields. I guess if you want to see the horse winning grade 3's thats fine but they need to make their money back and the only way with this one is at the breeding shed. A good move by them because this one is surely not top tier in the current environment · 1 day ago
