Javier Castellano will be aboard We Miss Artie for the Derby.
I bet him in the Big Cap but didn't last night and of course he runs the race of his life. Good win!

  • tmallios1 · You are correct Swiftie,why waste your money on Chrome. You more than likely will get a return on your investment Not much,but a return. According to your chatter,a bet on Candy Boy in the Derby,is a free pass to opine that he galloped out past the 9 horses that beat him in the race. He blew by all of them after the wire and the race was posted official. · 37 minutes ago ·
  • amino998 · Wrong thread, maybe we are maybe we aren’t wannabee :D >> Is Bruce out on a snipe hunt now? Need an explanation of the California Chrome / Edsel comparison. · 48 seconds ago ·

  • https://www.facebook.com/angelapicardi.ingrassia · Vicar in trouble gets no respect (why) · 11 minutes ago ·
  • DerekFisher · Angela, I like Vicar's in Trouble, and even have a futures bet on him still alive, but he is in a tough spot in the Derby. He likes to be on the lead, and doesn't like coming from off the pace or having dirt in his face, and he just isn't fast enough to have the lead in the KY derby. His fractions are slow by comparison (see LA derby), and alot of people will point to his pedigree to say he may not get to 1 1/4 miles. So i think that's why alot of people aren't giving him much of a shot. · 6 minutes ago ·
Check out the video and see for yourself. Truth be told, Candy Boy galloped out past Chrome and Hoppertunity.
  • tmallios1 · No wonder Stevens said that Beholder was the most intelligent horse and not Candy Boy. Once he learns the concept that a race is run from gate to wire,then the only other thing he has to work on is finding speed on the dirt surface. · 16 minutes ago ·
Here are Jon White's (Santa Anita oddsmaker) current Kentucky Derby odds: California Chrome (5-2), Hoppertunity (8-1), Wicked Strong (8-1), Danza (12-1), Vicar's in Trouble (12-1), Dance With Fate (15-1), General a Rod (15-1), Samraat (15-1), Tapiture (15-1), Wildcat Red (15-1), Candy Boy (20-1), Intense Holiday (20-1), Medal Count (20-1), Ride On Curlin (20-1), Uncle Sigh (20-1), Chitu (30-1), Harry's Holiday (30-1), Ring Weekend (30-1), Vinceramos (30-1), We Miss Artie (30-1).
25-1. I'll take it.
Has been retired and will stand at Arrowfield for the 2014 SH season
Black caviar half sister breaks her maiden at the second attempt win impressively going away from the field.
Forget Belmont, Del Mar or Keeneland, the next place I want to see host the Breeders’ Cup is Fairplex Park. I could see it now, the BC Classic horses going round and round the five-eighths mile racetrack. Wouldn’t that be fun? Best of all, I would get my future bet in for the Classic on the same day...Read More

Don,t waste your money on California Chrome
i didn't use to like her that much before, but i've really fallen in love with her lately. Gary Stevens said today that Beholder is "probably the most intelligent horse i've ever sat on" i know some people that work at Santa Anita or visit Beholder frequently that says she is an absolute sweetheart & a sucker for attention. what a nice filly.

  • tmallios1 · asatevens is really beginning to crack me up. He is to blame for Point Given,he is to blame for Candy Ride,Beholder is the most intelligent horse. What has he ridden her 3 or 4 times and he can summize this. Enough of the color commentary Gary,you left that profession to ride again. How intelligent must a horse be that in the 4 races you rode her. Physically on the track she was tons the best and fastest racehorse. That would suffice in your next commentary. · 1 hour ago ·
So now who will she be bred to? Galileo? Kittens Joy? Distorted Humor? Tiznow? Medaglia D'oro? Elusive Quality? SMART STRIKE!!!!!
  • kaitlinefree1 · would love to see her bred to Galileo, but i doubt they would do that. i'd like to see Medaglia d'Oro or Awesome Again. maybe Curlin? Pioneerof the Nile maybe? · 6 hours ago ·
  • EP Taylor · I hope for Elusive Quality or Lonhro. If they want to travel...Galileo or Deep Impact · 1 hour ago ·

  • tcglory · It wont be the year of the 3 year olds I can see that. I see it being the year of Belmont Park a Meet we wont ever forget · 2 hours ago ·
  • https://www.facebook.com/john.karczewski.39 · This is the year in general. The older male dirt division is awesome, that Santa Anita Hcp was one of the best non BC fields in awhile. The older filly division is stellar once again. The Champ Wise Dan is still doing his thing, "The Titan of the Turf". Judy the Beauty may pick up right where Groupie Doll left off in the filly sprint division. And Cali Chrome and Untappable could end up being something unforgettable. Top to bottom 2014 is looking like an exciting year · 2 hours ago ·
Any updates? Hope he's recovering well

  • Northport · From what I've heard, Winstar is more of a training and rehab facility (in addition to its breeding operation). It has a Hyperbaric chamber, Aquiciser, Equicisers, and a poly training track. Lane's End is more strictly breeding and boarding, so it doesn't have any of the amenities needed for horses in training · 2 hours ago ·
  • kaitlinefree1 · i can think of a lot of horses that went there for "special care" · 2 hours ago ·
Best Horse Ever
Will he wear blinkers May 3
Will win the Derby.
Oh sure, I know that CC is the glam horse of the Spring Thoroughbred Couture Season....I get that....yet somehow I'm not convinced that he will put away all of the challengers in the manner of a Big Brown Favorite this KD.....something tells me we are more likely to see an upset a al Charismatic, Animal Kingdom or Monarchos.....watch the replays of all the preps .....there is one out there in Prepland who will eventually best the Cal baby! I just hope that the masses don't bet down Wicked Strong to fave status by race time bc that's the one I think who is going to nab CC.....any thoughts, racing fans???????
