for whatever reason I pull for your horses. They seem well placed and well treated. And it's great that you're a woman with fine stock. I absolutely wish you all the good luck in the world. Ralph Arzoomanian PhD-not that that matters
After a rough start to the year, Oscar has really won me back over. He could steal the whole show this fall.
What?? Always Dreaming is a sprinter at best.
Outplay will take the Pa Derby. He will take the lead at the very short first turn (330 feet) and leave all the outside pp (8 to10) struggling to catch him. Like all Fappiano horses do, they take the lead. Outplay has a Win and a Place at Parx.
He is a handful to control in the stretch, when he gets pointed straight he can gooble up the real estate. Could be dangerous in a juvenile that is looking to be insanely fast.

If Dortmund wins this it's Greatest Horse comeback ever!!!
from a state fair stakes to a placing in a graded stakes
Today's card at Ayr Racecourse in Scotland, which included the listed Doonside Cup, as well as tomorrow's card that was to include the listed Harry Rosebery Stakes & listed Scottish Fillies' Sprint Stakes, has been abandoned due to problems with the racecourse being dangerously waterlogged from a down pouring of rain over the past few days in Ayrshire. Racing at Ayr will resume on Saturday, with the track's biggest event of the flat season, the Ayr Gold Cup(Heritage Handicap), along with the G3 Firth Of Clyde Stakes for juvenile fillies and the Ayr Silver Cup(Handicap) for those horses who were entered but didn't make the cut for the Ayr Gold Cup field.

  • bronzeprincess33 · I can't help but have mixed feelings over this decision. On one hand, a three-year-old is slated to run against older horses, which is a step in the right direction for the sport as a whole. On the other hand, he tried the same distance against his own age group and lost. Is there really any reason to believe he will turn the tables at Belmont Park? · 8 hours ago
