Blinkers off for the Tiznow Stakes at SA; first time since he was a baby.
Post Time 7:46 PM EDT: The Tiznow Stakes offers up a field of 10 older horses going the mile distance on the dirt.  Though this surface continues to favor those that are forwardly placed, this one has the looks of a pace collapse race.  If we are correct, #1 Solid Wager really offers a pr...Read More
Boy the conversation is deep here, I got to get my say in God bless all you horse player and my the best horse Win on June-6-2015 peace to all and have a awesome Belmont day.
Most of my sources have told me not to really put too much into the Derby trip by Carpe Diem . Yes , of course he got a dream trip from the get go : But for what its worth - Baffert during Fri - Sat had 7 starters go post , and did not win a single one - as even Bayern ran last . Then in the Derby , American Pharoah / Dortmund ran 1st and 3rd . Pletcher on the other hand had 10 go to the post while winning 5 of those races , to only finish bad in the Derby ! So many of the horseman will say that that Derby - the track condition was not too pleasing - yet someone had to win : After the race - many of the horseman was impressed how AP over came it all to win from traveling so far out - yet still getting the job done on a track that was like quick sand in some places : So my point : Carpe Diem not that he ran a bad race - he just didn't like the footing thru parts of the race - as in a lot of them . Yet , for many of the starters in the early going - MR Z didn't make matters easy on those that was trying to go to the front - which cost a lot of positions early on for some : Making No Excuses for any of them - im just saying : Carpe Diem actually came out of the Derby in good condition . So , as well as this colt ran from the impossible 2 post thru the early stages - just not liking the footing thru out - this colt from my sources gets a complete make-over as Pletcher ( Main Force ) in the Belmont from his stable
Is American Pharoah the horse to finally take the 62-year-old conditioner to the promised land?Read More
When all was said and done and the Epsom Derby field was cut to 17 horses today, neither John F Kennedy or Ol' Man River, who both tanked badly recently in the G2 Dante Stakes at York, were left in the mix for trainer Aidan O'Brien. Ballydoyle have 4 horses left entered for Epsom at present which are Lingfield Derby Trial winner Kilimanjaro, Chester Vase winner Hans Holbein, Giovanni Canaletto who trials on Sunday in the G3 Gallinule Stakes at the Curragh on the Irish 1000 Guineas & Tattersalls Gold Cup under-card, and English 2000 Guineas winner Gleneagles, who O'Brien already said post- English Guineas was more likely to stay at a mile for the Irish 2000 Guineas and/or the St James's Palace Stakes.

I like that they are lining up to make Pharoah earn it. This is a group that should all have the distance in them. Rested and ready. It will take an epic performance to thwart him.
  • Douglas Rutherford via Disqus · have you not been paying attention about his races : there is not a good enough 3 yr old at this time that can even rate up with him - without AP making it look well too easy : baffert has been saying we have not yet seen the best of this colt : not even from the derby or Preakness : he says there is plenty left in the tank . . . this group that he will be facing are not even in the same ZIP-CODE as AP . . . The Belmont Stakes it will finally sink in to you : but then it will be too late - as this race just might be his LAST BUT BEST RACE OF ALL · 3 hours ago
The last time America witnessed a 3-year old sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes was 1978 when Affirmed achieved immortality. Adding it up, makes it 37 years of being on hold. The prolonged duration has me comparing racing fans to the citizens of the movie Casablanca, who also hav...Read More

  • Deano · AP is a nice horse and has a great shot at winning the Belmont. What turns me off are all the AP fanatics that wanted to give him the triple Crown before he even raced this year. Baffert is certainly capable, AP is very sharp, though he still hasn't had dirt kicked in his face since his early races. He probably is good enough to overcome trouble. The only question will be the distance and how hard he has to race to get there. · 3 hours ago

I know a lot of you folks are big Curlin fans. Usually I'm not, however I think this guy is developing at the right time. He'll be one everyone scratches there head and says I didn't think he was that classy or that could get the distance. If Materiality and others can soften up AP then this guy will be coming late. I'm not a big Mark Casse fan either but he seems to be improving this season. Conquest Curlinate should get a good price on Belmont day, as AP will be way over bet.

Caracortado, the old stakes winner is still around. “He’s still has the same old quarter crack BS (on his right front foot),” trainer Mike Machowsky said of the California-bred son of Cat Dreams, now eight. “I hope to get him back to the races at some point, but I have to do right by him. No time table. You know how horses are.” Caracortado last raced on Aug. 13, 2014, finishing fifth in the Green Flash at Del Mar. In 20 career starts, he has seven wins including the Robert B Lewis Stakes in 2013 when it was a Grade II race, and the Grade II Del Mar Handicap in 2011.
With ten probables like these, you can see why the Met Mile will be can’t miss racing. Read More

  • barrmorr · As great as this Belmont day card is, there is an interesting appetizer earlier in the day. The Epsom Derby is that day also. While it will be in the morning on the East Coast it will make for a great opening act for a great day of racing. Hopefully TVG or HRTV will be covering it live. · 15 hours ago
