Ohh there singing praises with this one great win
Slade Power completes the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes/G1 Darley July Cup double with a win in the July Cup at Newmarket(July). Last horse to complete the double was Coolmore's Starspangledbanner back in 2010.

  • jonquil · He was really fantastic! I was thrilled to see his final race end in success and I'm looking forward to his stallion career. As for Lethal Force, I forgot all about him, too, until you mentioned you'd forgotten about him, haha. I think it's easier to remember Starspangledbanner right now because what progeny he's managed to get have started and are definitely impressing everyone with their performances. · 25 minutes ago
Looks tough to beat in the 11th at Arlington, but I also like the firster Wind Dust. $5 ex box 4-10
When is next race entered?
Prado made the trip to ride this filly in the Modesty. I'm anticipating a big performance
Wins the American Derby!
  • Sully · Very nice win on the stretch out. I had a feeling he may just not have liked the off going last out. Should be a very good edition of the Secretariat this year · 1 hour ago
Can't think of a horse much more deserving of becoming a graded stakes winner than The Pizza Man. Hope he gets it in the Stars and Stripes!
Gets his first stakes win today. So happy for this horse!
This is someone's new favorite filly. Heck of a P6 tick, whomever had it.
That was a determined win by this guy. Glad to see him doing well. Always liked him.
Finally gets his first stakes win!
Who won?
Wins a thriller in the Bowling Green!
always bet agasint a 1-5 or better favorite more times then none it pays off
His time in the Bowling Green. Hangover Kid-Grandeur-Sky Blazer-Reflecting
I like molly morgan for the upset
When is this race suppose to start?
You have an awesome filly in Galiana ! I was at Saratoga and had across the board on her when she paid $141 to win ! Hope to see her at the Spa this year ! I am hoping next Sunday she will be there and i will be cheering her on ! Good luck and thank you !
If there's an upset I'd pick Gamay Noir
In the 1st at Los Al
