Girvin and McCraken, who were a nose apart in the Haskell, will get their rematch in Saturday's Travers.Read More

  • ChessChamp · The lack of respect IRAP is getting is hilarious. He's beaten alot of the heavy hitters in this field, and he is the 'now' horse too. The amount of improvement he's shown since April is incredible, and the 'now' horses are the ones who usually win the Travers. I'm still not sure how good Good Samaritan is on dirt, as that Jim Dandy was a really weird race, and anytime there is only 5 horses, it can be a weirdly run tactical race. To me it looked like AD/CC/Pavel worked too hard and all of them threw the bit on the turn for home. West Coast is the main threat, but he really hasn't beaten much, so he has question marks too. Irap is 11/1 in futures, and I would be shocked if he's half that come race day. Maybe I'm wrong? My top 4: Irap, West Coast, Girvin, Tapwrit. · 1 day ago
  • Dave Hunter via Disqus · Girvin's 5f in under a minute on the very deep Okie t.t. is actually phenomenal. Like 57 at SA. · 1 hour ago

  • BobHayes22 · Baffert your no Charlie Whittingham!! Why is Bob getting a pass? Nick Luck said he had never seen a top horse lose by 15 and win his next. With 8 minutes to post Arrogate had 74% of the win pool Collected had 8% 1 minute to post Arrogate had 54% Collected had 25%. The smart money new who would win the clueless one was Baffert. · 21 hours ago
  • joe rifkin via Disqus · Arrogate fans making comments saying "Times" and "numbers" mean NOTHING..But when it comes to their horse the "Time" and "Numbers" in his Travers win it means a "LOT"...They just conveniently "Dont" count in his DWC..Everything is "meaningless" unless their horse is on the "plus" side in the category · 18 hours ago
Officially retired
Girvin just doesn't get much love from the fans. I blame his name because he is a fine horse.
Trainer Todd Pletcher confirmed Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming and Belmont Stakes winner Tapwrit will be entered to run in the Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers Stakes 2017.Read More
  • elhubbo · I think this is the last time we see the Derby winner. Unless Tapwrit runs big, he could hang em up too. It could be a year when none of the TC winners see the winners circle again. · 5 hours ago
Should be interesting to see if he can stretch out.
Trainer Bob Baffert swept the top two spots in the Pacific Classic, but Collected was the upset winner over Arrogate. Read More

  • bronzeprincess33 · Arrogate didn't disgrace himself in the Pacific Classic. That said, I was hoping for a bit more than he showed, but that's horse racing. Not running him again until the Classic makes sense, seeing as it worked for him last year, but I doubt I'll ever be a fan of that approach. · 6 hours ago

  • Debbie Webb Self via Disqus · I believe, based on their body of work for 2017, Stellar Wind should be ranked higher than Songbird. I like both horses very much & I know the voters love Songbird....but, she hasn't had a better year than Stellar Wind. Stellar Wind has battled Vale Dori in two race & came out on top. Songbird has not faced the same level of competition this year. The rankings are about this year's body of work. But, obviously, the true test will be when they go head to head.....and that will be one awesome race. · 1 day ago
  • Mr J via Disqus · Best post Ive seen is send Arro to the Hirsch Turf Classic and if successful to the BC Turf. A BC Turf win raises his stature. Secrarariat lost 2 out of last 3 dirt races then won 2 in a row on turf.Arro has zero chance in BCC whether its the surface or is declining · 8 hours ago
I'd love to see her race in Dubai on World Cup Night. The World can then see how good this mare is.
Do yourself a favor and watch this one's debut from Canterbury. She is going to be something special. Just insane. https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/race/usa/cby/2017/8/20/6/northern-lights-debutante-s
Last comment for now..Only "2" Grade 1s at age 3..only "2" at age 4.."only" 4 Grade 1 victories..including 2 that had a ridiculous inflated purse.This is not even including only 10 starts with 3 losses and losing his last 2 starts including a complete Flop..Hall of Fame horse?..All Timer?...The GOAT?...What the heck kind of Resume is this??..No offense but it is ridiculous and VERY disrespectful to Horse people like me and Horse racing in general to Annoint a horse with a resume like this as the next secretariat or as his trainer said, "Best horse since secretariat"...and i am gonna speak up for whats right sorry..in time if Arrogate proves himself worthy i will have NO problem giving him the respect he deserves
  • Mike in SB · Ghostzapper only won 4 Grade One races in his career and one of those a sprint and he is in the Hall of Fame and plenty of people on this site are calling him one of the best horses of this century. · 10 hours ago
Just like Chrome, this horse will never get the respect he deserves. RIP
  • Patricia King via Disqus · I hope Chrome gets the respect, he earned it on the track. I also hope he produces offspring that will do him proud. Hard to believe that Shared Belief will have been gone 2 years soon. Very tough part of the sport losing a great horse suddenly, and to soon. · 9 hours ago
Dude, I still watch the replay over and over of your historic '14 Big Cap Win where you did the d a m n thing!
For all the people whom "somehow" claimed Chrome was "Overrated" and not an "All Timer"...Kentucky Derby Winner..Preakness Winner..Dubai World Cup Winner..Also ran 2nd in his other Dubai try..Put together a win streak of 6 two times..Once leading up to his Derby win and the other leading up the the 2016 BCC where he ran 2nd getting caught late at the wire by Arrogate..Averaged an 8 length margin of victory in his 7 victories in 2016..4 Eclipse Awards..2 Horse of the Year Awards..13 Stakes wins..7 Grade 1 wins..Close to $15 Million in earnings..27-16-4-1 Lifetime Record..Sorry but to me it certainly takes an All Timer to accomplish all of this..Perhaps if "Bob Baffert" trained Chrome the "Talking Heads" would call him an All Timer and Special..And certainly would never be called "Overrated"
