Will NOT be running in the fourstardave. Lopresti will supposedly be giving more information about WD later today.
  • MaryZinke via Disqus · In response to the longer comment shown on the backside, he had a great run since the 2011 Clark. Job well done, Dan. · 33 minutes ago
  • amino998 · "I want to do what's right for this horse and I kind of feel like it was maybe just wishful thinking to try and make this race," LoPresti said. "Don't get me wrong, there's not a thing wrong with him; I just need more time. he's not dragging (exercise rider) Damien (Rock) around like he should yet, and maybe we've been pushing too hard to try to make this race." · 22 minutes ago
I was already a big fan of this mare, but I just gained a whole new level of respect for Missunited watching her win the G3 Lillie Langtry Stakes at Goodwood. She overtook Nymphea to strike the front and had to fight a host of challengers flying her which included Arabian Comet, Waila, and Epsom Oaks winner Talent. Missunited defined what the word "game" means in this race.
  • Euro Trash via Disqus · I do have to say she is game. I was surprised at her race before this, but both you and jonquil were not, I believe. She has stepped up nicely. · 49 minutes ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Just saw them post on the Racing Post web-site that the G3 Lillie Langtry Stakes was the final race of Missunited's career. She has now officially been retired to broodmare status. · 41 minutes ago
Cavalryman at 8YO looking better than ever, holding off fast charging stablemate Ahzeemah to win the G2 Goodwood Cup!! I called this one, as Cavalryman was pick to win this race.
  • Euro Trash via Disqus · Very, very happy he has found his form again. Just a lovely horse! Great call ILuvTurfRacing! · 1 hour ago
We'll it looks like the three Derby horses will be the only three horses in this race. The Mountaineer West Virginia Derby is the greatest race to have ever been run.
Ivawood runs his unbeaten record to 3 for 3, bolting up to win the G2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood.
It won't be your "LUCKY DAY" in the Whitney pal.

Meet Kevin Kerstein 

Long story short, I took the long road getting involved in the industry. I did not get into horse racing until 2008 when I came to Louisville for college.

I'm originally from outside of Philadelphia and attend college at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky. Since I was 15 I was involved with working in radio and TV. I first covered horse racing at the 2011 Kentucky Derby and my passion just continues to grow. Let the early mornings begin and the Derby fever heat up as we hit the backside to get the exclusive stories leading up to the first Saturday in May.
