Initially i conceded this race to Shared Belief,just like everyone else. But after looking at the entries,from a horse i had winning the race at about 93 % positive. I change the odds to about 80 % . The presence of Moreno makes this race a bit more interesting. A loose speed is always dangerous,especially when he is fresh and has some quality to him. Unless the ghost of Bejarano comes alive and he goes after Moreno,with absolutely no regard for his own. Moreno will be loose in here. Makes it a bit tough for the Hall of Famer. He now will have to use Shared Belief a bit more than he would of wanted to. Not saying that he will lose. But the chances sure increased with this entry. Never been a fan of The Rajin Cajun and his Amateuristic attacks in an attempt to Trash Talk. But i think that he has this guy on as much a tilt mode as possible. Nathan now i can get into the race,rather than be a spectator.

  • tmallios · You lnucklehead,then how can you predict that Shared Belief cannot win at a Mile .All bexause it is to short. You truly are a pathetic double talker. Just like your pal you referenced earlier. You cannotr keep track of the lies. · 2 hours ago
  • travel_vic · I took up the study of Eastern philosophical thought some years ago and the Chinese have it right and the west has it wrong. CHANGE is what runs this world and those we know it and prepare for it are those successful in this life. NOTHING stays the same, it is all in flux, as the wonderful oracle of the I CHING tells us all. Each race is an interaction UNIQUE in time as the track, the form cycle of the horses, and the way the crowd supports them is unlike any contest that has gone on before....Change, that is the constant in this life. · 9 minutes ago
This race has 6 front-runners. El Kabeir and Classy Class are surrounded by similar running style. I would be concerned about the first 25 yards. It could be a mess. The two closers, Combat Diver and Tencendur could mop this up. I think Tencendur has a better shot because he has been training huge and he has an enviable outside post outside of the fray that will be the first 1/16th. I agree with Deano. Tencendur only switched leads in one of his three races and still did well. Weaver has a very impressive 17 hand horse.
The horse produces it segmental velocity times against a recorded documented pace of race. All one has to do is figure the lengths behind to get the velocity of the HORSE. HORSE no one else. That is where all the data comes from
  • amino998 · So this HORSE, Shared Belief, is too WHAT for the Met Mile? · 1 hour ago
  • travel_vic · One can NEVER project the isolated HORSE in the absence of the projected (accumulative) pace of race that he/she is contend with. ANYONE evaluating a horse ALONE without considering the pace pressure ahead is headed straight for the poor house. The effect of a single negative pace pressure (ex. Siphon to Cigar in their Pacific Classic) can negate altogether what that special horse could do in a vacuum. · 1 hour ago
Soon you will all know the name Prospect Park , if you don't know it now , you will !
I am a sucker for Valid. Tough field.
Wheres his shorter brother at Cock of the South?
Crushed the field at Penn by 7 lengths. Why is he still running at a claiming tag?
Sunland Derby???
Clubhouse Ride has been retired. He will stand at Harris Farm for $2,500

Tiger Ride is interesting.
Met Mile? sounds a bit short for that one

  • Sullivan · Has no chance. Won the Malibu by a neck over a subpar group excepting the runner up. No way he takes Palace Malice, Moreno, Liam's Map, and/or Tonalist at a mile. · 5 hours ago
  • tmallios · Vic how did you come up with that conclussion. If it is all about the horse,did you have a face to face with him and he let you in on some inside info.Also until we know who the remaining horses in the race are,how can we determine what the pace scenerio/odds will be so that we can make an educated selection.Again Victorio,you are caught in a LIE. You truly are a habitual liar.Like Vodka said earlier,you really can't keep your stories straight. Are you sure that what you say you do at Woodbine is true. Seems to me that your Left Wing pal Brian Williams is not the only storyteller amongst us. · 3 hours ago
When do they draw post positions for the San Felipe?
Bayern's little brother, a colt by Scat Daddy, was just sold for $1.4 million at the Fasig Tipton Florida Sale. First horse to pass $1 million dollars today. The buyer was Coolmore America. According to DRF
Worked out today. 49 and 3. Hope he goes in Palm Beach.
Purse is the purse: has NO relationship to either the quality or depth of competition. I have seen many a listed stakes that had far more going for them in challenge and excitement.....MANY TIMES
As the old Adsge goes......If it were not for bad luck , i would have no luck at all. This guy is running at Tampa on Saturday in a MSW. Betting him is out of the question, he looks 2/5 before and after scratches(to coin a phrase). In his debut, he chased 4 wide on Cigar Mile Day. That was Aqueducts biggest inside speed favoring day,in arguably the past 10 years. Then in his last race,going 2 turns for the first time. He stumbled very badly out of the gate,he was rushed up and raced about 5 to 6 wide on both turns. This is were Bris Net and Beyer final figs do not portray a clear picture. His final fig was an 86. Media Time ran an 89 & an 84. Figure Nick lost about 10 lengths with the trip.At about 2.5 points per length, his revised and adjusted number should read 110 or so........But taking into account Nicks propensity for the bad trip,what happens to him here to lose. Maybe the only way would be his gate does not open.
"Hughesie" announced today via the Racing Post that 2015 will be his last and final season in the saddle.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · According to what I've read on some of the other racing web-sites now it looks like Richard Hughes intends to go the same route Johnny Murtagh did and become a trainer after he finishes his career as a jockey. · 5 hours ago
Do(es) the moderator(s) take a break for dinner? I was going to say something to sullivan about the Met Mile, but forget it. Will maybe post later.
