Why is she entered in the Torrey Pines against Jojo Warrior and other classy girls? I love the TX breds, but this filly doesn't belong here...
He was the best Horse for decades, and only injured could stop him. He was unstoppable in 2008, and would of won the triple crown but for an injury, and he would of definitely Won the BC Classic.

Mark Casse says Lexie Lou will run in the G2 Canadian; has Kaigun and Lockout for the WO Mile; Conquest Tsunami for the Summer. per DRF
Thought Woodward also. Cigar is possible. Thanks
It's not what she ran in, it's how she won them. Keep ur eye on her for the next 2 months, maybe you'll see what others see, but I doubt it.
  • tmallios via Disqus · Glad that you are happy and you love the horse if indeed you own her. But i have no clue and really could care less where you got the notion i was putting her down. If you have been in the game as long as you claim. Does she really merit a 10 spot on the list. Also i would not be so sensitive against people making sense. Save that to the ones that trash your horse. · 1 hour ago
Let's go boy!
  • Mary Z. · http://www.drf.com/news/stephanoatsee-derby-trail-pastern-injury I never pick him to win and not usually to place after this. Sounds very yucky, sticking a bone chip back on. · 1 hour ago
Scratched from the Woodward. Pointed to the Greenwood Cup on Monday
And best of luck to you, I sure wish I had a race horse.
  • jackh41 · thx, with any horse you need a certain amount of luck.. Next race Sep. 6th La. Downs. · 1 hour ago
Oxbow, winner of the 2013 Preakness Stakes, will move to owner Brad Kelley’s Calumet Farm for 2015 breeding season.
What's next for the ol'boy?
  • Mary Z. · Thought he'd try the Woodward again, but no. Hoping he gets a shot at the Cigar Mile at Aqueduct later this Fall. · 2 hours ago
Clearly Now looks like a lock against this field with his training progression since that dominating win in the Belmont Sprint. Only question is will he like the Spa surface. I simply feel this isn't Palace's preferred distance, so that opens the race up to some value. Zee Bros has an upset chance. Clearly Now-Zee Bros-Falling Sky-Big Business
  • Mary Z. · Speed Falling Sky scratched, but Zee Bros could be a major pita(p.i.t.a) 8 Clearly Now, 6 Palace, 9 Weekend Hideaway,10 "newbie" Confrontation. · 2 hours ago
Best Horse in America since "Big Brown".

Looks like Jackh41 is her owner. Maybe a reason for him to be enthused.
  • jackh41 · absolutely! and proud of it, best UPCOMING filly I've owned in 45 years in the game! · 3 hours ago
These opinions stated as fact are out of line. Even a preface of "In my opinion--- is more acceptable.

  • Mary Z. · Consider anything I post here to have an "imo" unless it is a link to an article. Anyway, I think Vyjack could do okay in this race, better than his last race, but of course Clearly Now is my lovey-dovey favorite sprinter. I'll try to come up with a cyber-super before post time. · 3 hours ago
French raider Fintry runs her record to 4 wins in 5 career starts to date for trainer Andre Fabre and Godolphin SNC with a win in the G3 Atalanta Stakes at Sandown Park in the UK. Very talented 3yo filly.
Any news on how he is doing at Adena?
Big Brown the Barry Bonds of racing...nuttier than a fruitcake as a result of the Winstrol
I just notice that on the HRN POWER RATINGS,that this horse is rated 10th. I could care less if voters have the right to vote for whoever they want. But HRN if you want a legitimate racing site,then rename your list header to "OUR PETS". By calling it a Power Ranking,you are showing a blatant disrespect to those that actually follow the game with a serious perspective.

pitifully over-matched animal running again? Too bad
I thought Dutrow said he wasn't going to run in the Hopeful, but, after rumors he might scratch,it looks like he is running, hope he runs well
