Me and my sisters are going to watch the movie Seabiscuit in a few minutes!
hard to beat the chalk..NOW if it rains hard at the Fort often the first one out of the gate triumphs so watch for the bias on races underneath if it is wet. 2 Ami's Holiday 8 Lynx 10 Lions Bay 6 Coltimus Prime 6 and 8 go out and 2 10 come later......Poor old venue is on life support and is hemorrhaging money.

Beating the colts is not the issue.More than likely she would go off the wagering favorite if she ran in the Haskell. If the horses she would have to defeat are Wildcat and Bayern.Unless she had a troubled trip, ido not think she would lose to them. But the key question is,how much effort would she put through. To date she has not been extended at all this year. She might not come back from a strenuous effort as well as she did before. Are they willing to risk possibly losing her for the rest of the year.Just to say they won the Haskell. 0 Replys tmallios | 6/30/2014 5:59 PM | - Re: Untapable. Jay and Triple Double,let me say i really appreciate the special attention afforded to me. You guys remembered my posts from 10 days ago. Yes i did say that the profile fit her. I did not say she should run. I never said she should run in the Travers.All i said was that if she won the Haskell ,the pleas would be a plenty for her to run. Now since you refused to remeber my other quotes,strategically i may add. Above is a post i made on June 30th. How good am i. I predicted she would go off the betting favorite. OOOOOOOPPPPPSSSS ,did you see where i question the move and what may happen. I must be a mind reader. Back to the 2 of you. If my girlfriend paid as much attention to me as the 2 of you do. I may actually consider proposing to her.

  • tmallios · I wont make those,if you paid any attention to my posts. I am the biggest proposer of fillies not running against the boys. Yes ,sometimes on paper they do look more superior than the field. But it is all about the physical stress the race puts on them. I am the one that took on the entire site after the BC when all wanted Ria to try the boys. They all trashed me. Then after she failed,they became hypocrits and started trashing the owner after the fact. Go back to that entire thread,Ekindy and i were the only ones that were against her running. · 4 hours ago
  • triple_double · TMallios said, blab, blab, blab, blab. We know you want to write a novel-like posts to get attention and now you are complaining. haha Mr Attention Seeker aka TMallios, as long as you continue writing a contradicting opinions about the same topic, you will never received a "thumbs-up" from me. Hmm, let's see, I'm eager to read what do you have to say about the Whitney (aka Palace Malice clueless fan base) next week. Please make it a little longer so I have something to read during the weekends. hehehe · 2 hours ago

Although a "Big" fan of Chad Brown's, I wasn't impressed with his tutoring of Normandy Invasion, and his latest dirt escapade with Cousin Stephen. But, when it comes to turf, he is the King.
  • Northport · Do we even know if Normandy Invasion was that good to begin with? It seemed that Fox Hill was generating most of the hype around NI - Brown didn't try to make him out into something he wasn't · 3 hours ago

Individual horses are still easier to find on your web site by going through Google than by using your menu - especially if you are trying to find what the silks look like.
Looks like there is a 3 other than or never win 4 lifetime allowance at Saratoga, on the 8th of August, going 7/8ths. This looks like the perfect spot and it makes the 3/4 work make perfect sense. We will have to wait and see.
Too bad, but connections had this one placed FAR too high all the time. On the farm he MIGHT be able to beat a few to the feed tub at least!

I can't stand this crazy format. What ever happened to being able to post or comment on the home page? Please HRN fix this problem.
I bet they will check any new female barn help for "bugs"--thoroughly. !!!

About Me

Mike has been a passionate horseracing fan for over 30 years. He received his “handicapping education” through countless hours of deciphering the mystery that is embedded in every race. It was the tough beats at the window, however, that propelled him to never make the same mistake twice (well, maybe three times).

As Managing Partner of Horse Racing Nation, Mike serves as investor, business advisor, staff handicapper and developer of handicapping content.

Handicapping the Derby has always been one of Mike's favorite endeavors.  He spends weeks compiling notes, speed figures and analysis in preparation for the big race.  In 2010, his HRN pals pushed him into packaging his time-tested methods into what became the 2010 Kentucky Derby Super Screener, an e-book that became extremely popular with HRN readers and was downloaded over 3,000 times.   

In preparation for the 2011 Derby, Mike will be "Rating the Preps" each weekend on the Derby trail.  The goal will be to build a good picture for which prep races are most likely to produce the 2011 Kentucky Derby winner.
