The 87th running of the prestigious Grade 1, $1.5 million Whitney, one of North America's premier races for older males, will headline a day of world class thoroughbred racing and special events at Saratoga Race Course on Saturday, August 2. Read More

Tries a 1 1/16th turf allowance @ Del Mar Sunday.
A very talented field of nine has come together for the 2014 Whitney (G1). Up for grabs is a purse of $1,500,000 and a "Win and You're In" spot in the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Classic.Read More

Trainer Tom Proctor just told me that the Grade 1 King's Bishop at Saratoga could be the target for impressive allowance winner, Myositis Dan.

Missunited was immediately checked out by the vet post-race after her win in today's G3 Lilly Langtry Stakes at Goodwood, and her connections have confirmed she suffered an injury to her suspensory and has been retired to broodmare status now in Ireland. As soon as she crossed the line, jockey Jim Crowley immediately dismounted her and did a great job of looking after Missunited the way a jockey should. Crowley said Missunited was pretty sore after the race but was walking much better later in the evening, so that's good news. Missunited's run today at Goodwood was one of the gamest and gutsiest performances I've seen from any horse, male or female, in a long time. In the final 200/250 meters of the Lillie Langtry Stakes, Missunited had Arabian Comet, Waila, and Epsom Oaks winner Talent all 3 bearing down and taking dead aim at her and she absolutely refused to let any of the 3 pass her. It was pure bravado at it's best. I hate we won't get to see Missunited race again, but she couldn't possibly have ended her career with a more compelling effort than she did today at Goodwood.
This is an interesting development. I wonder if the Arc will still be a target for them?

  • ILuvTurfRacing · I'm still bummed they decided to bypass the King George with Australia myself. I think he looks like 12f is his best trip. I think he's more likely to get turned over in the Juddmonte International at York over 10-1/2f or the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown over 10f than he would be in the King George. @zatt, as for the Australia vs. Sea The Moon showdown, Sea The Moon is clearly an up and comer but hasn't raced outside of Germany yet. The field he beat in the German Derby was by far the toughest he's faced yet and frankly speaking, I didn't see anything in that field to include Sea The Moon capable of beating Australia or Epsom Oaks winner Taghrooda for that matter, IMO. · 20 days ago

  • Jeff Seder via Disqus · Well, in the KY Derby, Vicar's In Trouble got the 1 hole, and was shoved against the rail so hard by the cavalry charge coming over on him that he got a racing stripe of hair removed off the rail, and cut up so he couldn't finish the race and had to be eased. Before that he had dominated the Louisiana Derby. His race back since the KY Derby he was 3rd in the Iowa Derby. So now he may be ready to return to his prior form ? · 6 hours ago

Multiple graded stakes winner Wildcat Red is being pointed to the Grade 1, $500,000 Ketel One King's Bishop on August 23, trainer Jose Garoffalo said Thursday morning. Read More
Lavender Road was euthanized after breaking her neck from a fall after suffering heatstroke.
Is there any video footage of this race available anywhere?
I think a good choice too. Really like Wildcat Red!
entered MTO in a 5 1/2 furlong turf sprint at Monmouth. Puzzling, as why would they run him on an off track if the race comes off the turf. I would not think they would run him over a bad racetrack at 5 1/2. It might be an easier spot than the allowance at Saratoga..but it is still confusing to me as to surface and distance.
Amino there is a great hunch bet at Saratoga on Saturday in the 3rd race. Where so many firsters are running without the Lasix. Maker/Castellano combo have a horse named Firespike.

  • ekindy · I'm liking Southern Honey in this one. · 5 hours ago
  • rogueclown · i love Sweet Reason here. i think she's going to get the pace, she loves the track, and the seven-furlong distance is perfect for her. Southern Honey is my second choice, though. she dispatched with older in a GII last out, and that deserves respect. she is rounding into really good form, and showed in that last out that she could rate. i still think Sweet Reason gets the nod, though, especially with her proven Spa form. · 4 hours ago
An evenly matched field of seven fillies and mares, headlined by Iotapa, faces the starter in the Grade 1 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes.Read More
Amino did you see the 1rst at Del Mar. This was the information horse i had on the undercard on Derby Day when he won by about 15 lengths. Obvious he has his issues. But take a look at the race if you missed it. Espi should return any payments for riding. This guy won on his own,AS HE PLEASED. This is a monster awaiting a stakes race.
Where is he going to race next?
any news when alpha will race again please
