I just realized I didn't enter a comment regarding McCraken. McCraken is my top choice to win the KD. I've been a fan of his for a while now. Prior to his last race, I went back and watch some of Ghostzapper's early races. I see a lot of similarities between father and son. As of today, McCraken and Mastery are my top two projection horses to win the KD. I'm looking forward to seeing his 3yo debut to see if he improves.
It's been a year sweetness since you died. Still miss you and I wonder what the 2016 season would have been like if you had have been here to race as a 5 year old. You will ALWAYS be my favourite horse bar none. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N0Djz1yrec https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQI1sdvT9C0

  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · very easy breeze. glad to see him back · 2 days ago
  • By The Numbers via Disqus · He's such an interesting horse to watch because I can never tell how fast he's going. No matter if he's going :46 or :49, he has that long, relaxed, loping gallop · 11 hours ago
Didn't win by the best of margins, but still very promising.
He's back in training and if all goes well will get back on the Derby trail. Hopes to run in a prep in early february.
1999 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Charismatic has arrived at Old Friends in Kentucky!! Looking good champ! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d849cf9681929f50b359ab99843865b44140d5dc6399f0ee1b09e2bb9c5ed8c7.jpg
Running Mate looks like a live longshot. I bet him to win at 55-1 in kdfw1 and boxed him with Classic Empire and the field. He looks to be targeting the Lecomte at the Fair Grounds in his first race for Derby points. Plenty of speed and stamina. His trainer Larry Jones trained Hard Spun who finished 2nd in the KY Derby.
That was too easy, lol
Nice win for her today. She looks to have improved as she's settled into racing in the USA. Could be one that improves further next year
This horse deserves more respect.
That looked catastrophic in the first at Del Mar :(

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.
