Dr. Fager's trainer John Nerud turns 102 on February 9th. The last racehorse for the horseman, appropriately named Final Chapter, won his maiden recently at Aqueduct. Said Nerud of the victory: "I won with the first horse I ever owned and bred and I've won with the last horse I owned and bred. And I've had a few good ones in between."
I just went back for the first time in quite sometime and took another look again at Frankel's devastating performance in the 2012 Queen Anne Stakes. I describe that race as being akin to watching a bunch of cars all with 4-cylinder motors trying to run down a 1968 Chevelle with a 454 big block.
  • Patrick Maher via Disqus · I felt sorry for Excellebration in that race. He actually made a run at Frankel with about 3/8s to go but then Quely asked Frankel to go and he blew poor Excellebration off the track. He came alomg the wrong year. · 4 hours ago
Promise and potential will take a back seat to performance late Saturday afternoon when 12 3-year-olds line up to face the starter in the 35th edition of the Grade III, $250,000 Sam F. Davis Stakes, the main event on Tampa Bay Downs’ Festival Preview Day Presented by Lambholm South program.Read More
Good luck to oceans knight Hopes are high that he will win the Sam Davis this weekend
Dr fager was the best horse I ever saw. I saw them all secretariat was next. Just look at dr fagers pps and then get back to me. Kelso,slew,bid, forgeo, were great but no way they would they beat Fager and yes he was better than damacus.
We all have our favorites … Certain races, forever echoing inside memories from days gone by. Over the years, I have been witness to many of racing’s thrillers.Read More

  • Diane Knisley Hain via Disqus · There's one race they should not have left off the list. Alysheba's Derby. My gosh, the horse went to his knees in the stretch, then got back up and won! · 10 hours ago
Rival Clue #1 - Born two years apart, the younger was bred in Florida, while the older was bred in Kentucky. Rival Clue #2 - We each became stakes winners in the same season, while aged three and five respectively.Read More

Got to go with oceans knight for me.
This past weekend marked my first ever voyage to the National Handicapping Championship at the Treasure Island in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event, run for the past sixteen years by the Daily Racing Form and the NTRA, is one of thoroughbred racing’s most coveted handicapping titles and the 2015 version ...Read More

  • FirstTurf · I totally agree AndyScoggin. I think that it would be great though to make them much more alike by changing a few small things. More to come! · 12 hours ago
  • travel_vic · Make it real: Give each contestant a $750 theoretical bankroll, let her/him play ANY track that is running on ANY ONE DAY. At the end of the time, the person with the most theoretical chips is your winner. Allows for innovation and money management like THE REAL WORLD. · 12 hours ago

  • papine01 . via Disqus · Watch out all.Flatter has a 1/2 brother to Orb named Shore Leave coming this year with Shug.Orb was by Malibu Moon,so Shore Leave coming from the same AP Indy sire line.Could be another derby for Shug.And a full brother to Orb in 2016. · 1 day ago
  • LorraineLloyd · When I read this horse has several Triple Crown winners in his pedigree that was exciting to me! Not only Seattle Slew and Affirmed, but Count Fleet and War Admiral as well, meaning that he traces back about 10 times to Man O' War, wow. Maybe I have a 3 year old to root for!!! · 12 hours ago
Back on the work tab after 30 day freshening.
Don't know the odds but Ami's Flatter and My Johnny Be Good look good.
NHC Day 2 Leader, John O'Neil, fell out of the lead several times throughout Sunday, but the final table proved his time to shine.Read More

the HORSE here is the competitor, not the passenger, and Tampa's 14th ranked passenger can ride the ability of the horse in the contest just as well as an import.
Ocean Knight draws post 11 of 12 for the Sam F Davis at Tampa Bay Downs. Go OC!!!!!!

  • tmallios via Disqus · The most optimistic news of your post,just may be that Irad is traveling with the Horse. Looks as though he does not want to lose him. He is very promising. Ran a hole in the wind his first time out. Based on his spotty spacing leading up to the race.I doubt he was as tight as could be.Should be top notch come Sat. · 17 hours ago
  • jockey2be. · I second that!!!!GO OK! · 13 hours ago
Shared belief worked six furlongs at goldengate in 1:11 today. That's a great work if he did it easy. I was thinking chrome would beat him by 5 lengths, maybe a hard worked 2 lengths now.
  • bradleymichael47 · The Chrome will beat him by a hard fought head or nose if he ever defeats him again · 16 hours ago
  • Hannah Etienne via Disqus · Wouldn't get to excited over just a work. Chrome worked 1:11 en route to a 6th place finish at PARX. Do you know if there is footage anywhere? · 14 hours ago
Ladies and Gentlemen, you have witnessed one of the most amazing developments in the sport of kings... A top level trainer has actually learned Gulfstream is the best place to retire a horse! After learning the hard way with Cairo Prince, it would seem McLaughlin actually wants a horse to make it to the Derby this year.
Will be sidelined for a few months. He is set to undergo a minor knee operation at Rood & Riddle next week. There was heat in the joint and after an xray was taken a non displaced fracture was discovered in the upper portion of his left knee. He will be turned out at WinStar for 60-90 days. Hopes are to have him back at the barn by May- Per trainer M. Tomlinson.
Would like too give a shout out too deshawn parker on winning his 4700th career race last week and winning 14 mounts at sam Houston race coarse last week
  • travel_vic · always wondered when he would leave that West Virginia DUMP and ride a good track: only problem is Sam Huston Racing Park is only 1/95th a step above Mountaineer. · 15 hours ago
