Will probably have the same exact campaign as chrome last year. San Diego, Pacific Classic, Awsome Again, then Breeders Cup.
Is baffert make the jockey club gold cup the goal for him again this year?
Has been transferred to the barn of Todd Pletcher and will make her American debut on Saturday at Belmont Park.
I have been looking at Looking at Lee all year. Blood line, races etc. if not for a muddy track at Churchill would have been in my trifecta as a win. Belmont is his race. Very strong colt. Only question is his passion to win. Loves to run and runs hard to close but can he battle for the win. I bet he will.
Local horse Hotshot Anna wins the Northbound Pride Oaks and shipper Shadow Rock wins the Honor The Hero.
Could be one to watch. Two wins in a row. The last one was pretty strong.
Nicks, you say Kendrick is sorry?... lol
Retired due to a soft tissue injury sustained in the Lockinge. Stud plans will be announced at a later time.

If he runs one or two more bad races, they should retire him.
Souper Tapit won the Grade 3 Marine stakes 5/28/17 for his first graded stakes win.
Dang scratched, track is a mess.

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.
