I am forever all about my girl Mamdooha. Contesting her first Graded race. Facing a very short, but talented field. If you listen closely my house will be rocking when they turn for home. My neighbors already think I'm nuts.
  • Jbyrnes1 · I think Mamdooha will win. La Verdad is in here, but she is coming into this race off for 6 months. Mamdooha is in good form and already got that first start out of the way. I think she wins nicely today. · 20 hours ago

  • Mary Z. · Yah, dq'd after the photo. Decision took so long. I finally figured out that it was the 2012 Berkeley H'cap at GGF where that also happened. Involved Awesome Gem. Funny tidbit(to me anyway): son asked, "What is that clicking? Did you forget to pause a video(again)?" I said, "No. It's the Keeneland live chat. You can finally hear The Famous(name withheld, giggles) clicking away." No offense. It was just funny. Son had a response about not giving something. He shouldn't talk like that. Must have a bad influence. · 14 hours ago

Whatever happened to this girl? I loved her. Loved her race in the Battaglia. I have her stall sign from the Kentucky Oaks framed in my den. I think of her often.
do you think he will still run in the met mile??? or is that wishfull thinking?
  • slewcrew7778 · From what I've read, it will likely depend on where and how severe the injury is. He could be out for 6 months to a year. Hopefully it won't be that long. But I'd say the Met is better than 90 % out of the question. · 7 hours ago

This champion is reason I love horse racing! Underated runner and sire! #1 sire of all G1 winners on dirt! Stay healthy AA!
Moreno, winner of the 2015 Charles Town Classic, came out of the race in good shape. Trainer Eric Gulliot was very happy with Moreno's performance. "He's a speed horse," Guillot said. "This is track has three turns, a short stretch, and was biased to speed today. And he didn't know where the wire was. I told (Velasquez) you have to stay busy on him, and he did exactly what I said. He listened to instructions and knew the logistics of the race perfectly." Plans call for Moreno, who is out of the A.P. Indy mare Danceinthesunlight, to take a short break and return in the Stephen Foster Handicap (gr. I) at Churchill Downs in June. Guillot said a trip to Saratoga Race Course, where Moreno won the Whitney Handicap (gr. I) last summer, is in order again, followed by the Breeders' Cup at Keeneland. Article on Bloodhorse
Danzig Moon, second to Carpe Diem in Saturday’s Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland, came out of the race in good shape. Danzig Moon was shipped to Churchill Downs on Monday morning to join trainer Mark Casse’s string in Louisville. Bred in Ontario, Danzig Moon, owned by John Oxley, also is considered a top contender for the $1 million Queen’s Plate at Woodbine on July 5. Casse said having the Queen’s Plate as a long-term target would not prevent Danzig Moon from running in the Kentucky Derby. So it looks like he will run in both the Kentucky Derby and the Queen's Plate later this year. Article on DRF

Danzig Moon worked a 58 Flat at 5F at Churchill today! 1/49! That is fast! Dortmund at Santa Anita worked 5F as well.. He clocked in at 58:80. This colt can run! Serious sleeper pick come May 2
Here's the report on Shared Belief, Shared Belief suffered a stifle injury during the Charles Town Classic on Saturday and was pulled up six furlongs into the 1 1/8-mile race by jockey Mike Smith. He was then vanned back to his stall in the equine ambulance.  Shared Belief stumbled at the start of the Classic and dropped far back in the nine-horse field. After failing to respond to Mike Smith's urging, Shared Belief was pulled up on the second turn of the thre-turn race.  According to steward Danny Wright, West Virginia state veterinarian, Elizabeth Daniel, told the stewards that "Shared Belief appears to have a stifle injury more than anything else. It doesn't appear life threating or career ending. it is a soft tissue injury."  Article on DRF

A sesamoid injury has likely ended the racing career of Diversy Harbor, a two-time stakes winner. In Saturday's Grade 3 Santa Barbara Handicap, Diversy Harbor was pulled up on the turn with an injury to her left foreleg. Owner Craig Bernick of Glen Hill Farm sent out a twitter message within a half-hour after the race, stating he had been in contact with trainer Tom Proctor and that Diversy Harbor would be unable to continue racing. Proctor expressed optimism to Bernick that Diversy Harbor could be saved. X-rays were being taken at the stable to determine the extent of the injury. According to DRF

QUOTE: "Here's hoping that California Chrome can distinguish himself admirably on the turf at Epsom." EPSOM? No one in their right mind would take a North American race horse over there to run at Tattenham corner.....I thought Ascot was his (foolish) destination?
i want what the cali stewards are smoking. how can anyone say big discovery wasn't beating blue harbor without the interference? big discovery was clearly coming home stronger after recovering from the interference
been working lately. hope he starts soon.
I sure hope he is OK but I am not sad at all about him not hitting the board. My show bet paid handsomely bro!!! $$$
goodness! that was an amazing close from this horse. whiskey ticket also did very good, and seemed very professional. Both of these horses are now on the radar.
I suspect Mallios and Vic will be celebrating long into the night.

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.
