http://www.drf.com/news/hovdey-bittersweet-memories-shared-beliefs-day That is an article on DRF about the ceremony. I am thankful that they have named a Stakes race after our sweetness. From the article " Later in the meet, there will be a private ceremony to bury Shared Belief’s ashes in the Del Mar infield alongside the grave of Native Diver, the Hall of Fame gelding whose 37th and final victory came in the 1967 Del Mar Handicap. Nine days later, he was dead after an attack of colic."
We are all rooting for you Lady Eli! So glad you are the champ you are and defeated that damn laminitis. Go get them you pretty filly!! Safe ride

Happy to see Frosted gets some new challengers. Moob and Samraat were both pulled from the Whitney. Bradester also conceivably can get HOTY if he somehow beats Frosted and goes on to the BCC. Also nice to see Comfort again but at 9, not 10 I don't see Comfort having a shot especially if Frosted runs his normal closing style. Bradester is the main threat here.
Frosted should go in the mile...its a good distance for him..and why bother facing Chrome in the classic...he cant beat Chrome...smart move is take his chances in the mile
Excited to see this one run Saturday night at Delmar for her 1st start. LB's half brother Ten Blessings was a 1st out winner at the Winter Santa Anita meet for the same connections. Life's Blessing has had some really quick works for this including a 58 + change breeze in her last. She'll have to show speed from the inside which her mother should have passed on. Some good one's in the field including a Hollendorfer filly with a similar quick 5f drill.
Upstart's probable for the Kelso! It appears his connections have realized their G1 ambitions at classic distances are futile and if they put their horse down in class, like they did in the Razorback, Upstart could pick up some wins. I think Upstart's got a fine chance to win the Kelso (although as we all know Point Piper looked great his last time out) and be a serious BCDM. I had a weird dream about Upstart winning the BCC in 1.57.60 a few weeks back so maybe a win in the Kelso will just get his connections over confident again(which is exactly what happened when he won the Razorback).
Go for Wand was very good, not yet great, only met a buzz saw that she could not get around and UNFORTUNATELY, gave her life trying to beat her. Wasn't going to happen that or any other day that season.
His ashes are going to be buried in the infield at Del Mar in Friday. That sounds very moving and fitting.
What happened to all the comments on this page? All the many comments and tributes after Shared Belief died? I came here to share the news about Shared Belief's ashes being buried at Del Mar field as part of his inaugural Stakes race on Friday and all I see are 6 comments from 2 years ago? What an outrage!
I'm going to be watching for sure! I'm so glad that there is a Stakes race named after our dear Shared Belief.
It's so sad that he is deceased. He was only horse which Chrome doesn't have a chance. Maybe if he will be still alive Chrome fans will be more polite and shut up with criticize every horse which "amazing Chromie" beats.
  • BeastBob via Disqus · "Was" is the keyword. Right now, the numbers say that Chrome is at least 2.5 lengths faster than Shared Belief ever was. · 14 hours ago
Any word on Frosted???? Where he's going??
  • RealTalk via Disqus · probably the breeders cup mile..he prob wont run the the classic..they know he has no chance vs the top horses..he proved his whole career he can run with the TOP horses..so they should stick to lower class horses like his last 2 races...but prob the breeders cup mile · 15 hours ago

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.
