At a Mile and an eighth I think The Runner would have a shot at being close & up at the pace-he can do that distance-even with the best as has been proven...But... I HAVE A QUESTION FOR ALL OF YOU..SERIOUSLY.... What do you think the odds would be for him if he would go in the Peg????

  • Blue Larkspur via Disqus · How small does one's self image have to be to keep making inane posts about one particular horse? How much disability or welfare does one receive to have the time to come up with as many disparaging comments? To answer your question, no one cares. · 1 day ago
Anyone here on H R N know what is going on with Beach Bum ? After a great 7F race I heard this horse had some issues and was out of training, but was returning to training in the middle of Dec. Anyone have updates on this horse?

There needs to be an age restriction for the comments section. Stubborn, rude, ignorant children should not be allowed. There are enough adults acting childish without having to endure "expert advice" from someone who doesn't even have a driver's license!
First foal. A colt out of the mare Look to the Stars.
Will be a scratch from the Lecomte.
I can't believe all you bandwagons...no way Arrogate or anyone else beats Chrome.

BREAKING NEWS: Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies runner-up Valadorna has been entered in an allowance race at the Fair Grounds on January 27th in a one mile and 70 yards race. race 5, Julian Leporaux will ride. She is using this race as a prep for the Rachel Alexandra.
I have a question about the Eclipse Awards, so I will ask it here, since I think Chrome is going to win the Big Prize on Saturday. *fingers crossed* Question- Was there always a presentation award banquet for this award? I see that the Eclipse Awards started in 1971, and in the movie "Secretariat" (yes, I know... it wasn't very accurate with LOTS of things) the jockey "Ron Turcotte" comes in a diner and is waving a paper saying, "look, Secretariat won Horse of the Year!" I'm assuming they found out the night of the awards banquet, and not in the casual manner portrayed in the movie, right? Or maybe they didn't have the awards presented like they are today? Does anyone know?
"If he can get out of the racetrack... if he can get into Florida, I think we can get him into the gate," Fiske said of Gun Runner Via Bloodhorse.... Could be interesting if he can draw in. He is going very well right now. I will be shocked, but hey anything can happen.
