John Warren, racing manager for Queen Elizabeth II, has confirmed the Ascot Gold Cup winning filly Estimate was 1 of 5 horses who tested positive for Morphine in their system last week when the BHA made the announcement. The positive tests allegedly stem from the 5 horses eating contaminated feed. The matter is under serious investigation by the BHA(British Horseracing Authority).
  • yukichan · One thing, among many, that I learned from my visit to Coolmore was that they grow all their own alfalfa and grains for their operation and Ballydoyle's. · 8 hours ago

Pretty excited for his racing return!!!!!
  • cedar · Hoping that when he makes his return he continues his success from early this year. Lot of promise on the dirt! · 10 hours ago
Q of the D: What is your favorite quote about MOW? Mine would be, after he passed, in the newspaper they wrote "The King is dead, he has left no successor". It perfectly described how dominant a figure he was.
What a RACE horse!!!
One obvious question about this horse, I know a lot of people like him in the upcoming Haskell, but can he run outside of Gulf Stream Park? Did he even have any good works at Churchill?
  • jockey2be. · I guess he'll answer that question soon! · 6 days ago
  • Mike Relva via Disqus · Got no doubt he will run well Sunday. · 11 hours ago
will stand in Australia permanently.
Have there been any horses in the past who have been as closely documented as Zenyatta's babies?
Love this horse!
Go, go, Honor Code!
I love Kid Cruz. He is a very good horse.
  • cedar · I think he is one of the better "second tier" 3 yos. I don't see him winning the big grade 1s against the top colts, but, like Departing last year, I definitely see him making noise in ungraded stakes and g3s. Please don't take this as me knocking the horse, racing takes all kinds and I've always found the relatively consistent lower level stakes winners (like Caixa Eletronic and Ben's Cat) to be some of the most fun to follow. · 13 hours ago
This is the the best horse . He will be horse of the year again. If for some reason he doesn't get back to form I like palice malice next .
  • MayaJoffe · For a while Palace Maiice was on the top of my list...just because Wise Dan was on the sidelines. · 13 hours ago
I know Mr Z is better horse then Big Trouble. ..

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!
