  • Sullivan · Not a one race wonder, as I said after his Maiden, the leaders 21 / 44 / crazy fast. No surprise he closed on that one! · 13 hours ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · Why on earth would you do something stupid and come down on Trainer Ron Ellis. As evidenced by his lack of performance in yesterdays race,Ellis knew exactly what he had,or may i say did not have. He ran him in the softer spot to protect the horse with his development. A 1 race wonder is someone like the horse that won first out at Turfway Park by the length of the stretch ,and then did nothing the next time out. Gomper ran a par race his first out. Rather than trashing Ellis,be thankful he realizes this and does not put the horse through any undo stress,wheras he can get hurt. · 1 hour ago
Good Luck today O.K, run your heart out and safe trips, Go O.K!!!
How about we get Frankel with this girl, it would be a good blood outcross
So Hootenanny is not a Kentucky derby contender?
Looks tough in the Sam F. Davis. Should be 9- 3-5-11
Safe trip O.K. jlp
Mrs. duPont and Carl Hanford certainly didn't run from any competition. In the 1964 DC International, Kelso beat his nemisis Gun Bow, after coming in second the previous three years to T. V. Lark, Match II and Mongo. Kelly set a new American record for 12 furlongs on turf at 2:23 4/5, going three turns at Laurel at age seven to become the oldest winner of this event. Eleven days earlier the Bohemia Stable gelding had won his fifth Jockey Club Gold Cup in a row, setting a new record for two miles on dirt at 3:19 1/5, which still stands. Allen is right about the competition that Kelso whipped over his career. The names of top notch champion horses are many. It's not surprising he enjoys the number one spot on this site.
Mawthooq is out of the Withers and off the Triple Crown trail after emerging from a Thursday workout with a tendon issue, according to trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. According to DRF

  • Northport · Given the amount of time and money Sheikh Hamdan has spent on his international stable, I really hope he wins the Derby one of these days. · 13 hours ago
  • Sullivan · It would seem the Sheikh always buys the best but never considers adding elements of speed nor soundness... rather instead assuming it will be there · 12 hours ago
Gotta root for my guy Distinctiv Passion. That kid is FAST. Besides, I kinda like him a lot ;)

BTW, I thought the rider rode him very poorly at Breeders Cup.



Meet Matt Scott 

My horseracing journey began when I was 16 years old and my mom took me to Hollywood Park. Although I did not fully appreciate it at the time, the experience stuck with me forever. 10 years later, during one of my many international business trips to Hong Kong, I visited Sha Tin racetrack to watch the races. This is where my true passion began. 


Holding a masters degree in mechanical engineering, the puzzle of handicapping intrigued me. I have made a career of making decisions based on trends, patterns, and formulas, which is why I think I was initially drawn to the sport. However, I have truly learned to appreciate the horses and how magnificent they are as athletes. 


I currently live in San Jose, CA, and when not following racing, I like to spend time with my wife, mountain bike, and design high-speed bicycles that I build and race For reference, 55,000 furlongs is the distance from Hong Kong to my home in San Jose. Also, I have 1-year-old dachshund (aka wiener dog) that I am training to race in the annual Wiener Nationals held at Golden Gate Fields.   


The purpose of this blog is to help give people the viewpoint of a fan that is newer to the sport and eager to learn. I like to respectfully speak my mind, and often the ideas come out of left field, which could give a fresh perspective on a sport rich with tradition and history. hope to represent the many future fans that I wish to follow my footsteps into the Sport of Kings.
