Snoop, in your spare time today. Please take a look at Penn Nationals' 1rst race.
There's been some changes here. I still like COMPETITIVE EDGE to go all the way to New York baby at the Travers . 2nd - Tekton. 3rd - Keen Ice .
Rachel's Valentina to debut at the Spa this Sunday, August 2 in a 6f maiden special weight. Details: https://youtu.be/AnDU8b-L4P8
Out of the jim Dandy
I see Stanford, Tekton & Tommy Macho are entered in the Curlin Stakes On Friday at Saratoga. Those 3 Are also entered in the West Virginia Derby on Saturday at Mountaineer along with War Story. The Haskell is Shaping Up to be a 5 Horse Field.
Solow wins his 4th straight G1 this season with a victory over Arod in the G1 Sussex Stakes at Goodwood. Dating back to last season, Solow has now won 8 straight races and 11 of his last 12 overall. Pretty impressive!
This is going to be one of the greatest race in this year, even better than the Belmont. Honor Code vs Tonalist vs Palace Malice vs Lea. Two Belmont Stakes Winners. I hope Palace Malice gets his shot

JByrnes, John and anyone else attending on Sunday. Have a great day ,and enjoy yourselves. Hope you get great weather.
"There is nothing left to be said about the greatness of this horse and any word to the contrary is pure BS"
Curious to see who's actually going to run in this versus WV Derby (Stanford, Tommy Macho and Tekton all cross entered) and Haskell (Tekton also nominated).
Wouldn't it be great for horseracing if this guy could come back to form at 8 years old and compete in the bc mile?
One of the prettiest horses, up there with Ruffian and Union Rags for my top three. Cannot wait to see him run in the Whitney and then hopefully against AP. I don't know who I would want to win!
Sad to hear he was beat.
Shaman Ghost finishes 2nd beaten a neck behind winner Breaking Lucky in the Prince Of Wales Stakes after a troubled trip. No Canadian Triple Crown for 2015.
This list is just ridiculous
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
