HRTV is reporting that Dance With Fate has a severe hind leg injury after an accident involving the rail this A.M. Video of the news report. http://www.hrtv.com/videos/?VideoCategoryId=2&VideoId=hble5oFbRImd2cmxwoHk8r0EkQYGSQcdKoXQWZrtnP8=
Vanned off the track today, per HRTV on Twitter. Hope he is okay.
Fortunate enough to see Cougar II's FIRST North American start. Announcer at Anita, Joe Hernandez, brought him up from South America and when he won that day, I seem to recall those were the LONGEST odds at which he would go off during his entire NA career.
Very deep field but I like Fed Biz and Footbridge!

7/24: There are two Grade 3 races for 2yos on the card today. Starting with Race 3 @ 6:25pm/1:25pm EST we have the Silver Flash Stakes for 2yo fillies, 7 furlongs. There are 8 runners and no scratches so far - the runners include Raydara for H. H. Aga Khan, Marsali for Calumet, Cocoon for Coolmore, New Alliance, Jack Naylor, and Agnes Stewart as well as 2 other runners for Aidan O'Brien in As Good As Gold and Qualify. O'Brien is bidding to win this race for the fifth time, but his fillies will need to have improved greatly to take on their tough competition today. Then in Race 4 @ 6:55pm/1:55pm EST is the Tyros Stakes for 2yo colts, also 7 furlongs. There are 3 runners and no scratches - the runners include Tombelaine for Prince Khalid Abdullah, Gleneagles for Coolmore, and Convergence. This race will probably end up being between Tombelaine or Gleneagles. The going reported from Leopardstown Racecourse is good to firm with no rain. The weather forecast is warm, dry and sunny.
  • jonquil · Also, John F Kennedy, the 2yo full-brother to recent Irish Oaks runner up Tapestry is running in the first race today. It will be his debut maiden and he's the 4/7 favourite. · 1 hour ago

Wishing him a very speedy recovery. He was hospitalized Tuesday with pneumonia and remains in intensive care.
skelly, Hope you can represent the Bern Identity crew at Monmouth this weekend.We will know later today if he is entered. Battle will be in a battle at Del Mar!!!!
Though the pace will undoubtedly be hotter in the Haskell, he has a better chance in the Jim Dandy.
He just might
Q of the D. Who are you rooting for in the Haskell and why.Remember this is who you want to win(not necessarily who you think will win) :)

Sky Kingdom for the win.
Love the Dance With Fate entry into the San Diego. I'll be rooting for the 3yo to take down his elders at Del Mar.
Trainer Naosuke Sugai announced today that both Just a Way and Gold Ship are intended runners in the Arc this year. While Just a Way will go straight to the Arc with Yuichi Fukunaga, Gold Ship will prep in the G2 Sapporo Kinen (2000m) before leaving for France with Norihiro Yokoyama. Gold Ship may run into other Arc probable Harp Star in the Sapporo Kinen.
GO Dance With Fate GO! I also like Fraction Daddy!
Goooooo ROC !
I'll keep posting about the sport instead of the bash and dash mentality of most posters. Anyway, come on Kid Cruz!

returns this Saturday in the Colin Stakes at Woodbine
It was nice to see her win after her horrible race last time out
With no lone ticket selecting all winners of Sunday’s Jersey Shore Six, the carryover sits at $39,189.74 for this Friday’s racing card. The Jersey Shore Six is a 10-cent base wager. To win the jackpot, a ticket must have the winner of the six races comprising the wager and be the only one to have done so. If more than one person has a winning ticket, they split 60% of the net pool with 40% going to the carryover.

For as long as i can remember I have always loved horses and writing. The first race I ever watched was War Emblem's Preakness Stakes, but I didn't really start to get into racing until the next year where watched and cheered Empire Maker through the Derby, and yes, the Belmont.

I didn't begin writing until a few years later, when I created my own blog Horsin' Around. It didn't take long for me to realize that my niche was stirring the pot and creating heated debates, especially during the time of Big Brown vs Curlin and Rachel Alexandra vs Zenyatta. I was a Curlin and Rachel fan.

Now I am here under the name of Dead Heat Debates, and hoping to live up to that name. Have fun and let the opinions fly!
