  • travel_vic · When ANY filly wins almost for fun against all comers of BOTH sexes (save one time on bad footing here when she spit the bit at odds on) and is frankly not challenged, you have NO idea about her real ability as it has never been challenged. She was a force to be reckoned with when her Woodbine Oaks was faster than the field for the Queen's Plate prep for males on the same track the same day. This one has great potential. · 2 hours ago

  • travel_vic · ONE THING you learn from being around horses for ANY length of time and evaluating their abilities OBJECTIVELY, is that SOME days they don't show up. The reason? Who knows???? Don't try assigning some BS answer to what, in the end, is just pure randomness. · 5 hours ago
On this day of appreciation, I wish each and every one you a very Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful to have such a wonderful and loyal group of readers and friends as you.

Don't Tell Sophia would not be a surprise, but why isn't she getting fat at some farm, I wondered? Now that was sure to reverse jinx her a win. Happy Thanksgiving.

After easily breaking his maiden last out, Toasting Master is set to run Saturday in 6 at Churchill Downs, a $75,000 ALW. The half to Broadway's Alibi ran second in his debut due to a thrown shoe. Making his third start, he is the 9/5 favorite against 2-1 ML shot Holy Boss, fifth in the G1 Champagne.
$100,000 Keeneland September purchase Dontbetwithbruno is set to make his first start this Saturday in the first at Aqueduct. A half to Oaklawn Handicap winner Cyber Secret by Man O'War sire line stallion Tiz Wonderful, he will be ridden by Javier Castellano for the Repole Stable.
The time has come! Overawe is entered in r9 this Sunday at Aqueduct as a main track only. Javy is aboard, should he run. Overawe is a half to Cleburne by Awesome Again. I found Cleburne by track the maternal line of Gay Matelda. It is my hope Overawe also inherits some of her speed and talent. Overawe has been working since mid July at Saratoga.

  • tmallios via Disqus · I will never understand the thoughts of many when they vote for various things. On this Award,the 6 noinees mentioned are not only very popular and fan favorites, but are or have close to Super Star talent. Because of that,i would not bestow another piece of hardware to their collection. These horses have and will receive many more Awards and trophies along the way. In sports when a Championship game occurs. If i do not have a favorite team in the game,if i decide to watch and follow. I will always root for the team that has not won previously. Regardless if they are the favorite or Underdog(that of course,unless i do not like the team). So i give you an option to all this. Last year i remember many of you were not happy with the menu of candiddates given. You were all in a state of decision to make write in votes. Well nothing personal against these horses nor their connections. But at least give it to someone wheras this may be their only time in the Spotlight. · 1 day ago
  • roseann cherasaro via Disqus · I went with Ben..love all the others but Ben has been bringing it for years and never had the chance to go where the others have so here is my vote for the small stable with the very big horse. · 9 hours ago
