half this field is garbage i'd rather bet 5,000 dollar claiming race then the belmont stakes. Stradivari Brody's Cause Creator Governor Malibu,Mo Tom all garbage. Exaggerator, Lani, cherry whine suddenbreakingnews these four good horses. destin is a big question mark
  • steevo · exaggerator, lani cherry wine sbn all garbage, strad brodys cause creator governor Malibu all good horses , my post is as stupid as yours is garbage, have a bit more respect will ya for other horses , have your bet of 5,000 in monopoly money on your claimer see how you get on · 3 hours ago
Trying to find updates for this horse. Is he doing okay? Where is he now? What's his next race? I think he would have been fine in Preakness if Exaggerator had not cut him off and blocked him halfway round. He deserves another shot.
they caught o'neal dopeing his horses thats why he dont run in new york if the belmont was in another state we would of had a triple crown winner in i'll have another but they busted him now they not running nyquist that goes to show me insider info is true o'neal dopes his horses
  • MaryZinke via Disqus · I don't know about this o'neal, but the trainer of Nyquist does ship horses, usually only to graded stakes, in NY in the summer. You are making allegations of not only drug infractions but are you also saying that every track that IHA and Nyquist shipped to or their home tracks failed to test them properly? Again, the worrying about those who have paid their fines and their time and not about the ones who don't even think that the rules are for them. · 3 hours ago
I like Brody's Cause or Suddenbreakingnews for the upset. Straight: Brody's Cause(Hd)/ Exaggerator / Lani / Suddenbreakingnews
Stradavari to the front in measured fractions. Like DaTara in 2008. Like Nick told the jock that day. Go to the front, do not worry about Big brown or what he is doing. DaTara ticked off 24, 48, 112 won in 229 and change. Wire to wire 38-1 upset winner paid around $80.00 bucks to win. In a chat the day prior to the race Andrew Starr said DaTara would lose the race in the final strides to Big Brown. He later said he regretted that one because he wanted to pick DaTara badly. Commendable did something similar with Pat Day aboard in 2001 and won in 231! 22-1 that day 50 bucks to win on every $2. It is about getting to the front, rating and having the ability and stamina pedigree to finish the race. Not about speed here at all.
  • BeastBob via Disqus · If you go to the front and let the better horse sitting right behind you in perfect stalking position, then you will be in trouble in the stretch. There was a chart in another article here a few days ago, it showed that the Belmont Stakes were predominantly won by stalkers. · 4 hours ago
they took the winner out Sharp Azteca. also i wish they would run outwork and or unified in the belmont now they have unified and sharp azteca in the peaguses stakes at monmouth
Won nicely on his debut, defeating the more experienced Tafaakhor quite well. He looked like an experienced runner surrounded by a lot of green first timers, never would've thought it was his first time out if I didn't know better. A very impressive colt, looks like he's going places. :) Congrats to Simon Crisford!

This son of Frankel did very well to come in 5th behind Dream Of Dreams today. His trainer has been clear that Majoris is not a sprinter and this would be his only run below 7f. The race certainly backs this up - Majoris started slowly and looked well out of it from the start, but towards the end he came on gamely to snag his spot. Not a bad first outing, and he looked like he could use the run. :) I'd expect him to do better next out when he'll likely be traveling over a mile.

I'm hearing Baffert is targeting the Whitey or Woodward Handicap for Dortmund, not sure if he'll have a prep race beforehand.
  • Sullivan · From whom exactly did you hear that one? If the horse is ready to go in late July then he could hit a prep and the latter, not a bad idea to dodge Cali Chrome and Beholder either · 4 hours ago
From this afternoon's Racing Post web-site: English 1000 Guineas 2nd, Ballydoyle, will miss the G1 Investec Oaks at Epsom on June 3rd but English 1000 Guineas winner & Irish 1000 Guineas 2nd, Minding, is still on track for Epsom according to a statement released earlier this afternoon by trainer Aidan O'Brien. O'Brien had actually mentioned splitting the pair up a few weeks back after they ran 1st & 2nd at Newmarket in the English 1000 Guineas, saying he may send Ballydoyle to France for the G1 Prix de Diane(French Oaks), and he also named the G1 Coronation Stakes during next month's royal meeting at Ascot as a possible target for Ballydoyle as well.
Does anyone have any information on this missing gelding - claimed back to Jacobson from Rodriguez - with nothing posted in months?
Yeah! Won the debut!
Looks like she worked 5/8 In 1.00 and 4/5
  • Byrnzzz · Hey Mark, so I've been doing some searching, this work was at Belmont, the race I can see her pointing to next is the Jersey Girl on June 10th the Friday before the Belmont Stakes. · 8 hours ago
Besides one obvious mistake, Mario Gutierrez did exactly what Nyquist's team wanted or planned to do. And that was break fast and run fast the first 1/4 mile, avoid the reported deep-mud rail, slow down the pace in the middle splits to recover, and then pull away in the stretch. The mistake was he tried to test the rail at the top of the stretch, and as soon as he did that Exaggerator passed him as if Nyquist was glued to the ground.
Right now I like Exaggerator-Stradavari-Suddenbreakingnews-Cherry Wine-
Byrnzzz, have you heard anything about the 4 races I mentioned? Any possible contenders?
If Mohaymen was here, he'd win. But I like DESTIN for 1st then Creator, Exaggerator , and Stradivari .
