What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Pletcher has multiple horses in the race(Surprise-Surprise) The reality is that Global View just might be the best suited for the task. His best race to date was on the Turf. Could be this weekends Danza at the price.
My boy worked today at Aqueduct. Lets just say Scary Good is downplaying it.

  • tmallios · Nobody works like that. Lisa who really pays attention to workouts told me that the last horse to work like that was Goldencents at last years BC. That was over the highway known as Santa Anita. · 51 seconds ago ·

  • buds · The only other horse that was under 10-1 is out. Chome is going to go off at close to 2-1. The next horse on the odds board is Tapiture at 10-1 · 21 minutes ago ·
Of course my favorite horse out of the derby. This KD is going to be such a joke. Im going to compare California Chrome to Man O Wars 100 length victory against Hoodwinked. Such a shame these champs are breaking down. Honor Code, Top Biling, now Cairo Prince. Jesus.

  • SSilence86 · Every year the path to the Roses is fraught with injuries & health issues etc. It can happen to any horse at any time unfortunately. · 1 hour ago ·
  • Buckpasser · I remember Sir Gaylord getting just before the Derby in a workout. Buckpasser and Graustark injured before the TC trail. Graustark out completely, Buckpasser coming back on the undercard at the Belmont Stakes. Many nice horses never make it to the TC. · 24 minutes ago ·

This guy just may be my wise guy pick. He came out of no where and seems to be training very well. Looked great on the track this morning... https://twitter.com/moonwalker24/status/457553146361823233/photo/1
He had his ears pricked the whole time! Looks better than ever. People jeep knocking him because he is a "frontrunner", but who cares? With that high cruising speed, he could go just about any pace and still have something left for the stretch. If you don't believe it, watch the San Felipe

can someone tell the owner to retire this horse and give him a break. This horse has been raced like a 14 year old gelding. Whens the last time you had to click the next or page 2 link on a horse's profile here on HRN?

  • DerekFisher · I know he bounced in the Santa Anita, but i wouldn't count him out. He's been working great, and if California Chrome can't handle the distance, he could be well positioned. · 1 hour ago ·

Meet Scott Dick 















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.
