4 Shaman Ghost 5 Danish Dynaformer 2 Conquest Boogaloo 6 Breaking Lucky Track is notoriously famous track for front runners, so the 7 Cut to the Chase has a great shot to be on the board. Don't' believe me just review Golden Moca. No odds in such a short field. Will be there for my FIRST Prince of Wales.
My be to his advantage with very high humidity and the temperature around 34 Centigrade (93.2F) and the humidex even higher ...at least he will have some water to get rid of.
Looks like cannon fodder with that 1:44 at 1 1/16. Thats not going to be anywhere close to getting it done.
I see Stanford & Tekton are entered in the Curlin Stakes On Friday at Saratoga.
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.
Samantha Nicole, full sister to Rachel Alexandra, has been entered in an allowance race Monday at Saratoga. Race 5, 1 1/8 race, Irad Ortiz Jr. will ride.
  • Jbyrnes1 · Finished 2nd today behind runaway winner Tiz So Sweet, winner drew clear but gamely held on for 2nd, good effort today. · 7 hours ago
Interesting note in the Prince of Wales tomorrow, Queens Plate winner Shaman Ghost will be the only horse in he field to not run with lasix. In fact, in his 7 race career so far, Shaman Ghost has never run on lasix. Also, the race will be at 7:40 PM and will be broadcast live in Canada. I believe that TVG will be bringing coverage of the race as well.
Nathan, Peytons Alma Mater is returning to the races on Friday
Very Tough Race would be a better way to put it...lol
Drew the rail @ Mountaineer Saturday
Mark Casse tells DRF'S Alex Campbell that 2014 Canadian Horse of the Year and Queen’s Plate winner Lexie Lou is nearing a return to racing at Woodbine. Lexie Lou has not raced since finishing second in the Grade 2 La Canada Stakes at Santa Anita on Jan 17. Lexie Lou has been working regular at Woodbine for the past few weeks. Casse says he would like to have her return in about mid August and says the ultimate goal for Lou is the Breeders Cup. Article on DRF
