What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

NBC and the Breeders Cup organization agree to a 10 year contract extension to current broadcast agreement, keeping the Breeders Cup on NBC until 2025, according to DRF
  • travel_vic · Powers that be should really RE-Evaluate the clowns they have commenting. Also truncating the show makes it fragmented.......If they ever did an IQ testing on the cacophonous outpouring of BS spewed forth on that broadcast it would be well north of 60 at best. We all keep the sound turned OFF. · 1 hour ago
Here is a list of prominent trainers who have a chance to win their first Breeders' Cup race this week at Santa Anita and I think some of them will surprise you. Read More

  • travel_vic · Horses win races NO ONE else. Talked last night with yet another retired jockey and posed the question; "How much, percentage wise, does a rider contribute in to a horse's winning?" Answer? and emphatic 10% tops! Horses run, the rest watch. Many of the household name trainers would NEVER be so if it weren't for the exceptional horses that were in their barn. · 1 hour ago

What's in a name? What was the Breeders' Cup Marathon is now the Las Vegas, still run at the gut wrenching distance of 14 furlongs. Who will be this year's winner?Read More
  • marylandgq · Nice write-up Matt and I concur with your top pick! That means Cary Street is in trouble. LOL I'm also going to use Sky Kingdom in my P3s. GL · 1 hour ago

  • draynay via Disqus · I think all of you need to watch the Jockey Gold again and notice Tonalist did not have a free run all the way down the stretch ... when he got open he exploded and won by a ton. The horse is a monster at 1 1/4 face the facts. He is your winner ! · 2 hours ago
  • travel_vic · Post position at 10 furlongs means next to nothing as there is a very long run to the first turn · 1 hour ago
Tonalist will be the key can he win away for Belmont Park if so he can best the west coasters and others . Watch for some surprises underneath .Maybe toast of NY
ok, this is ridiculous, east hall is rated above untapable close hatches and california chrome,

  • jjflash67 · Love how the "experts" always go out on a limb and pick the favorites! No way you will win any $ on Breeders day playin that way! I'd say Renee won'thit the board. I take 11 on top of 5,7,10 and 12. Book it!!!!!!!! · 13 hours ago
  • DavidM9999 · Last year this was a weak renewal and not sure this year looks that much more promising. 2013 was an absolute staggerfest late with the Ria A past the wire move up. Puca is interesting with a family that can route. Expecting downward tote movement with that one. Conquest should cover the ground without issue. As to experts that “eat chalk” – it applies to many including Mike Battaglia but not fair to paint Laura with that brush. I am going Puca and Conquest while hoping SA is not a NHRA surface. Good luck to all. · 2 hours ago

Wednesday's 5th race (3:30pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is a Starter Allowance event for 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the turf course (rail at 30 feet). #2 Crux finished 4th vs. this kind on dirt Oct 3.

Not sure how to let you know what I read online, Jockey 2be. But was on the HrTV site this morning for the BC this morning so am posting under WR. You can go to their website, It says they will give a free month. You said you dont have them on TV but if you can do this you should get to see all the BC and other stuff as well for a month onlline. It says use code TRYFREEBC. Hope this works for you, you are a great fan and I hope you get to see everything. Worth a shot.
Anodin,Grand Arch ,Obviously ,Toronado mix em up - Bang!
Closed like a rocket and missed the win by a neck to Pumpernel. Glad to see this one back finally!
*I began my career in New York, where I broke my maiden in my career debut after running in 10th the first part of the race. *My first career graded stakes try came also came in New York. I finished 4th as the third choice, going nine furlongs.Read More

  • · I think it was the clue with a son running at his favorite distance and him winning a 7 figure race at Belmont. I was pretty sure the horse had to have won the mile at Belmont since the only 7 figure races at Belmont have usually been the Belmont and sometimes the Jockey Club Gold Cup outside the Breeders Cup. I was pretty sure it wasn't the juvenile since Unbridled Song, Johannesburg and Stevie Wonderboy didn't race that long. I knew it wasn't a Classic winner since the distance didn't fit, so it had to be a winner of the Mile. That ruled out Ridgewood Pearl and I knew Artie had one in the Mile. I didn't think Val Royal ever had anything make it to a Breeders Cup. · 13 hours ago

Still Secret Circle. Indianapolis sets him up and will confuse all.
Toronado, Anodin and Veda. Box 'em
You think upstart can get around Daredevil this time? If there's an upset I'd go with mr. Z.
Brown Panther looks tough. Real tough.
