Goes out a winner!
BOOM!! Dortmund looked too fast for his own good in the stretch! I wonder where to next, it might be a better idea for Baffert to stay home and target the Met Mile instead of going to Dubai which can take a lot out of a horse. The Met Mile should be the top priority race for a horse like Dortmund, will look really good on his record before eventually going to stud. Dortmund will probably race for as long as he is healthy which means a 5yo campaign, hopefully he stays healthy and happy!
This is how he beat them, he just said screw you guys, i'm gone, to the rest of the field and just burned up the track for the rest of the stretch
Code Warrior won the GG Debutante!
Next pointed to the California Oaks on Feb. 6th.
WOWWW!!! Ladies and gentlemen, if this guy stays healthy, we could be in for an unbelievable four year old campaign from this guy. Dortmund is something special.
  • xword15 · It was a great race by him. As soon as he surged past imperative for the lead he made it look too easy. · 1 hour ago
Dortmund wins the Native Diver @ Del Mar Proud of him and hopes he only gets better!
Commissioner goes out a winner as he takes the Hawthorne Gold Cup. Way to go Commish!!!
Chiropractor, March, Om
How about that? 2nd in the Hollywood Derby, 9f turf at Del Mar, 11/28/15. Versatile.
Carina Mia with a great run to beat Stageplay... She is going to keep getting better and I believe can challenge Songbird
She put away another excellent filly in Stageplay today... I believe she will give Songbird a run for her money
Nice 4th place in the English Channel today. He got bottled up a little bit in the stretch and I think if he could have gotten through sooner he would have placed or even won. He might have a bright future on the turf rather than a dirt sprinter.

I think Private Zone should win Older Dirt Male. He's just been so consistent.

  • Mary Z. · I hope you didn't jinx him out of that Cigar win. You couldn't wait a day? You hide if he doesn't win. And he better win. · 22 hours ago

Rooting for Om.
Well, he only got fifth, but probably didn't like the off track. Still believe he is a derby contender.

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!
