Awesome Slew. Great trip in the Sanford. This horse shows some "Awesome" promise. Can't wait to see this horse running a mile or more. Love this Florida Horse!
Actually I think he has a great chance at being second. In fact him and Photoshop will be lengths apart of the rest of the field at the wire if class holds true to form
First start of career was a win in a stakes race.
Both turf and dirt pedigree on both sides. I like this one.
Im keeping an eye on this colt!
Wheres Captain Picard!?
This horse is a beast!
I wanted Sharp Sensation , hopefully he can come back as a Longshot in the Al Vanderbilt Hcp. Amelia 's Wild Ride also has a good future .
Where is he running this weekend he also entered Curlin.
did they change silk colors?
I don't know why Dame Dorothy isn't here, she's the best female horse in America ! (Besides Curalina ) 2nd - Judy the Beauty 1st - Enchantress 3rd - Street Story
Pharoah dodged a stumbling block in carpe diem, im not saying pharoah would lose, but carpe diem would give pharoah a run for his money
  • Ruffianlover · Spanked him once and no reason who he wouldn't do it again. CD proved he couldn't run with the big boys in the Derby · 2 days ago
  • Christopher Browne via Disqus · Yes he would. If it weren't for the chip in his foot, Carpe Diem would have won. · 3 hours ago
Frac Daddy has been retired due to a strained suspensory per BH. I'll miss him (the Skip Away connection), but I know SS86 will miss him even more. :( http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/93215/frac-daddy-retired-with-suspensory-strain
I don't know what to think of him running in the Haskell or for that matter any top level stakes race. Sure he's collecting checks at the top level but the bottom line is he's still eligible for a NX1 allowance. I realize his connections probably think he has a better chance at getting 2nd place money in the Haskell then trying the more competitive Jim Dandy overall. I'm not so sure he can get 2nd money with his style over that track. It's like mixing oil with water. Try giving him a race in an allowance where he can maybe get a win, then put him back in with the big boys.
Toormore holds off a strong challenge from Dutch Connection in 2nd and Safety Check in 3rd to win the G2 Lennox Stakes on opening day of the Goodwood Racing Festival. His 1st first win since he won the G3 Craven Stakes in April, 2014.
According to DRF.com Tommy Macho is the likely sole Pletcher runner in this race...so with Stanford out and Tekton possibly running in the WV Derby...looks like a small field of 5 with Tommy Macho and Smart Transition being the favorites. Can anyone confirm if Tekton will be running the Curlin Stakes or WV Derby? Thanks!
What a turn of foot by Shore Runner....blocked inside angled out and came like rocket in the final 16th...he looks ready to move up the ranks to graded stakes company. Didn't have him here but looking forward to seeing where he runs next.
Anyone know what kinda beyer she got for her classy debut? I would say mid 80's
On July 27, Uncle Sigh worked 5f on fast dirt at Saratoga in 1:03:67 (b) finishing 11/13.
On July 27, Neck 'n Neck worked 5f on fast dirt at Saratoga in 1:00:00 (b) finishing 2/23.

My journey into the sport of kings has been different than most. I do not boast a royal pedigree, and in fact, before my interest in horse racing, my family thought the Kentucky Derby was the only race of the year! I'm the son of a minor league baseball player and a homemaker, which doesn't exactly scream grade I winner.


My passion for the sport started about 8 years ago.I was watching as Funny Cide was making his triple crown run. The “Gutsy Gelding” had my eyes glued to the television with each of his triple crown races. After watching Funny Cide on TV. I decided to make a trip down to our local track, Indiana Downs.This would be an experience that would change my life.

I looked over the program, while having no idea what I was doing,I decided to put my 5 dollars on a horse named Apollonea. As the gates broke and the announcer began his race call, I heard the words Apollonea to the lead. My excitement grew as I watched my horse lead all the way around the track, eventually drawing to win by an easy five lengths. Apollonea paid 58.00 to win, I was hooked from that point on.

For the past 8 years my life has been horse racing.  I've tried to educate myself on every aspect of the sport and learn about it's past. The incredible run of the Super Filly Rachel Alexandra would also change my life. It was my intense passion and love for Rachel that would bring me to meet some of the greatest  people in the world. I owe a lot to Rachel and this sport for introducing me to such wonderful people.


I want this blog to show that Indiana Racing stacks up with any track, anywhere! It will also show what great value can be found in Indiana for the bettors, and not to mention, the incredible purses for the owners and trainers.
