Untapable earned a 94 Beyer speed figure for her win in the Cotillion.
Bayern earned a career top 111 beyer speed figure for his win in the Penn. Derby yesterday
Way to go Untapable!
I had Untapable, Sweet Reason and Little Alexis as my trifecta. Would I have won any money on a $2 wager?
Got to love tapiture great run in pa derby/bc classic or bc dirt mile/I think he has a better chance in the classic/itsmyluckyday -bayern -tapiture bc dirt mile /hats off to bob Buffett/no sooner does game on dude retire and here comes bayern 1:46:9/he must feed um different hay!
ZATT's Star of the Week, is ... Bayern!
The great Discovery carried 130 or more 19 races out of 33 in a two yr period. The highest amount he carried was 143. The highest weight he won under was 139.
  • airedale2008 · Buckpasser, the weights assigned today seem rather minuscule compared to what horses ran with years ago. Are racing secretaries afraid of breakdowns, as more trainers administer drugs to mask the aches and pains? Curious what the highest weight assigned is this year. · 4 hours ago
Dumbass stables got greedy and did not prep Chrome + Jock kept him in a box until the top of the lane = no Horse of the Year. But how can you keep saying he has done more than Shared Belief ? SB already has BEAT older horses in a Grade 1 race. Bayern will not go 1 1/4 against top older horses. We will see next week.

  • Mary Z. · Hey gloom and doom, clecair, Had not whoever's whatshisname, the no chancer not scraped The Derby-Preakness winner at the start of the Belmont, there could be a different story. Either we see a Triple Crown winner or not as much time off for Chrome after the Belmont. I don't recall the name, but class is not just about the horse race gradings. Why is it always the worst horses that ruin it for the best? See also 2011 Belmont and No He Isn't, that race's ruiner. There are long shots that have some kind of a chance and then there are ones who do not belong. It is not a blessing for the top two year old that is having a fantastic comeback as a three year old to have missed the Triple Crown races. It is just what happened. Do you think they wouldn't have loved to have won the Derby? As for Bayern, someone asked months ago which one 3 year old the readers thought capable of winning the Triple Crown. With Shared Belief already out, I know I said Bayern. He's had his ups and downs, but when he gets that word go in his head, he's beautiful. I think you are right about Shared Belief, but not for the reason you stated. · 9 hours ago
  • cleclair1994 · Im not trying to be gloom and doom Im just going off of recent trends in the last few years. 2011 was different but look at the other recent years. Orb and Oxbow ran a combine total of 3 times after the triple crown...bodemeister, I'll Have another, Creative Cause, Union Rags never ran again. Even this year. Danza, Medal Count, Intense Holiday. These are all talented horses that ended their career because of the triple crown. The horses that become the really good ones down the lines are the ones that usually did not go through this rigorous schedule. Im not saying it is always the case, of course there are exceptions, but there are enough examples in the past few years that it can be concluded that the Triple Crown may not be the best thing for the race horse itself. · 8 hours ago
Have never seen her in person but she looks like a BEAST in her photos and on TV, very physically impressive. She has backed it up on the track in her last three races, nice win today.
Look Shared Belief can win the awesome again, classic, and clark and still has no shot at 3 year old honors end of story
We often forget how much the jumpers of today carry and JUMP with that high weight. They stay sound. What gives?
  • Exterminator · Vic I suggest you get involved with eventing. They carry weight, don't run on Lasix or Bute, and do it for miles over 3 tough days. · 12 hours ago
watch the race yourself. Rider kept himself in almost a blind switch NO ONE ELSE. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9YW_IeEKYk
Well stated, Southern Humor, and triple_double. Refreshing observations!!!
what happens if VE Day wins the JCGC and the Classic, hhhhhhmmmmmm!!!!

  • ekindy · The 3YO colt Eclipse is very much wide open now. VE Day, Wicked Strong, Tonalist and Shared Belief all can win it if any of them win both their respective preps and the BCC. Chrome and Bayern can win it if either of them wins the BCC. If Bayern passes the BCC for the Dirt Mile and wins, he can win it if all of the rest lose the BCC. Many, many scenarios now. · 12 hours ago
Breed, Own & Train horses like Bobcat Greeley in DerbyVille! [Edit] Bobcat Greeley will this pedigree travel 1mile +6farlong
YOOO!!!! If Shared Belief and CC lose there remaining races, and this gal wins her next two, she could steal the HOTY title, she has three G1's and if she wins the Spinster and the BC Distaff, she will have 5 G1's this year, now that deserves HOTY

Curlino obviously well meant, broke slow and didn't run a lick. Having Mark Casse for a trainer the poor horse is doomed for failure. Trainer has never had anything in the States. Stick to mopping up at Woodbine, Mark.

Emerald Downs website said she reached Santa Anita safely Wed., Sept 17. Now we just wait and see.
He would have a better record, Allen. The greats of the past carried weight. Forego carried more than 135 pounds nine times. Damascus ran in six consecutive races with 130 to 134 pounds. Seabiscuit carried 130+ thirteen times. Dr. Fager carried more than 130 in his last eight races, with the last outing at 139. Sister Ta Wee carried 142 in her last race. Then there is Kelso, who carried 130 or more in twenty four contests. These days weight variances are nowhere near what they used to be. Ta Wee carried 29 more than Hasty Hitter in her last Interborough. You saw Secretariat win the Belmont. What were other memorable races?
In todays race Bayer set a track record and his time at the mile split was 134.71, Bebbie ran the mile in 134.2, My piont is she can run at this level. This was the boys !!!! jlp
