Suddenbreakingnews is my pick.
Luminance won a nice allowance event at Delmar yesterday in a very quick 1:08 1/5 for 6f. Broke slow, caught the field and came up the rail to take the lead against the big favorite Bendable. She had plenty in the stretch and won nicely. This filly looks to have grown considerably from last year. Has to be stakes bound
I know how cynical horseplayers can be but I hope no matter how she runs or where she finishes a standing ovation awaits her when she gallops back. What Chad Brown has accomplished bringing her back could have not been done with a horse that didn't have tremendous heart and will. To put it in royal terms Tepin may be the Queen but the Lady is back.
Anyone know what or where his next race is?
Hello to bad I did not get my ticket in :(. Maybe next time I'm real Sad ,, how could this happen
Did not see that coming. Totally thought he'd go to the Jim dandy. Very confusing as Keith said he has not been training well and he can't figure out why yet let's send him again Nyquist and gun runner instead of the Jim dandy where I thought he had a great shot to win it

1st- Ostrolenka 2nd- Notacatbutallama 3rd- Moonlight Song
This is undeniably a fairly strong field. 1st- CONNECT 2nd- Ready Dancer 3rd- Uncle Vinny 4th- Gift Box. I will bet the most on Connect, but I would love for my boy Vinny to win.
Here it is - two weeks out from the Haskell and Jim Dandy and no word on him and where he is pointed. I still think the Haskell is an ideal position for him with the track fast like he likes it. He has had 3 works since the Belmont: Saratoga 5 furlongs 1:02.43 11/17 Saratoga 4 furlongs 49.96 16/38 Belmont 4 furlongs 48.48 8/62 I hope he is ready for the Haskell because I think he could be a strong contender, but I understand that the Haskell/Travers double is not easy so if he stays at the spa that would make sense.

  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · Jim Dandy it will be! I'll be there for what should be a good day · 1 day ago
  • Pitbull via Disqus · I dont think it matters. I look for Gov Malibu to take the dandy.In my opinion he would have won the Belmont.If you watch the video he was sent to go and he had a big head of steam but was blocked on both sides with no where to go.he would have skated on that rail like ice.He will be in the money.Ive always loved this horse and i hope he makes me proud. · 12 hours ago
Came across these photos of Dortmund and California Chrome battling it out in the San Diego! Dortmund resumed training this morning at Del Mar. The Pacific Classic could be his next start!
is back, the champ. opened up Nyquist
If you are looking to bet Saturdays Jim Dandy Stakes, please take a long hard look at this horse. To begin with , in the Belmont Stakes. Joel Rosario rode him as though he was running on Eggs. Never set him down seriously,always restraining him. Go back and look at the replay. He got shut off about 4 times from the top of the stretch and on. This is a prep race for the Travers. His competitors just may be looking at this race as such. This guy WILL WIN THE JIM DANDY on Saturday.
1st- NYQUIST 2nd- American Freedom 3rd- Exaggerator 4th- Brody's Cause 5th- Gun Runner 6th- Awesome Slew 7th- Sunny Ridge. It should be a very tight photo for 2nd. Any of American Freedom, Exaggerator, and Brody's Cause could get 2nd but Nyquist will run this race fairly similar to American Pharoah.
  • jrem1 · He will be more rested than A.P. was for sure so maybe he'll be able to hang on if the pace gets too hot. · 14 hours ago
Been a long road back from a near fatal illness. Getting her back to the races is a bonus.
Interesting move by the Exaggerator connections sending him to Monmouth. I read that he had two "dull" workouts in Saratoga so I'm assuming they're sending him here hoping the surface change will help. Hard to see Nyquist losing here though due to the fact that Monmouth is all about speed and he has the ability to win from the front (assuming Gutierrez doesn't gas him out again). In either way it should be a good race. I think Gun Runner is perfect for this distance and I'm just sitting here waiting for Brody's Cause to return to his 2 yo form as well.
  • Lkb via Disqus · Probably has something to do with the fact they are expecting rain Sunday in NJ and not on Saturday in NY. · 14 hours ago
Exaggerator is not running in this race, was confirmed today. He is scheduled to race in the Haskell which will be a rematch with Nyquist. My pick here, well gotta go with the grays but my first choice is Mohaymen.
Gun Runner gate to wire.
Yet another first time out winner for Frankel strikes! He looked quite green and appeared like he could do with at least another furlong, but still managed to win his debut maiden by 1/2 a length.
The Mystic Lake Derby is exactly one month away. Get excited Minnesota fans.
