What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Look like Goldencents is headed for Keeneland for the Shadwell Turf Mile to take on Wise Dan. This will be his first race on turf.
  • cedar · Read the news this morning and am very surprised to hear that this is their plan. Have any stud plans been layed out for him yet? This almost makes me think that they're hoping he'll take to the grass and could race longer on a softer surface. Though I think that purse money will be their biggest incentive of sending him here. · 4 hours ago

SB can rate, stalk, close and go to the lead. Chrome, Dude, wicked strong, Tonalist all need to be on or near the lead to win. If the pace is slow,SB will go to lead, relax and run away. If the go fast, he will find a comfy spot,
  • cugel the clever · WS will beat both CC and SB wherever they next meet. He was the best horse in the Travers. He and the jock went to sleep when they made the lead in the stretch.... jock should have been paying more attention to who was coming up on the outside. He had plenty of horse left. · 19 minutes ago

  • travel_vic · Pace of a race is created de novo from the entrants in TODAY's contest. Since NO one can predict exactly what that pace will be, AND the pace of race of each contest IS the creation of the styles who are IN that particular race, beaten length comparisons of previous races,versus different paces of race, are IRRELEVANT. · 47 minutes ago
Give this guy credit, Curlin has had a remarkable year both on the track and off the track, Curlin gets inducted into the hall of fame this year, he's one of the top sires of 2013, he's got stakes winners from Palace Malice, to the undefeated Stopshoppingdebbie,to Moulin De Mongin, to Classic placed Ride On Curlin, to very promising two year old La Grange, and not to mention the highly anticipated debut of Jess's Dream soon, it seems like every curlin horse is either winning or running in the top 3, wether it's dirt, turf, or synthetic. He is one of the greatest of all time on the track, and now is spreading his legacy to his offsprings, hope he continues to have success and and his runners make him proud.
Best tracks to bet are those where YOU the bettor have a handle on what WINS and what does not.

I saw this same sad ploy with a good one from here Wando: "get credentials on two surfaces so we can promote the stallion as multi-purpose." Won't work: his running style is that of an extended DIRT sprinter NOT a "run like the wind late mover" that is the style on the green.

  • mthbwu via Disqus · I commend NYRA as well as the city of Saratoga for the protractive, unmatched honoring of the greatest master to ever don the binoculars above a horse race describing the action from above occurring from below. While the horses trainers jockeys owners and all the backstretch employees are the ones giving us all this tremendous action on the oval we became more aware of what was occurring through the tremendous descriptions by the one the only Tom Durkin and most importantly what he contributed to the lives of these backstretch employees. Thank you Tom Durkin the man who set the bar and changed the way his profession went about their job. Honorable mention as well to Dave "Down The Stretch" Johnson as well who helped mold the way races are described to us now. · 3 hours ago
  • travel_vic · "Down the stretch they come" Johnson was thankfully put out to pasture as he was dropping seriously in class with no published workouts much akin to Terry Wallace at Oaklawn missing horses, or worse yet, calling the wrong ones. SO OFTEN in his RUSH to get his "pet phrase" into every race's audio, the crowd would COMPLETELY miss the movement of contenders from the mid turn to the 1/16th pole so he could enter his USELESS pet expression much to the nauseation of all assembled wondering just "was he was calling a race, or self promoting." It got sad early. · 2 hours ago

Trainer John Gosden has raised the possibility of Kingman stepping up in trip next season if the brilliant colt stays in training. Given that he carries the same colors of owner Prince Khalid Abdullah, Kingman is inevitably compared to the unbeaten Frankel, who also dominated in the mile division during his classic season before proving equally dominate over 10f in his 4YO season. Speaking on the subject, John Gosden said, "Frankel obviously went mile, mile, mile as a 3yo, but stepped up to 10f in the Juddmonte International and again in the Champion Stakes as a 4yo. If Kingman stays in training next seasons you have the option to do similar things, but at this stage as a 3yo, a mile is and will remain Kingman's trip."
Ten-time Grade 1 winner Wise Dan is set to race for the first time in nearly four months in Saturday's Grade 2, $250,000 Bernard Baruch Handicap. The last thing on trainer Charlie LoPresti's mind, he says, is a third straight Horse of the Year title.Read More
