Mike takes the blinkers off in a n1x 1 1/8th on the dirt Monday.
  • tmallios via Disqus · First of all,who is Mike? Second and more important at Parx. Stone Cold will be making an appearance · 40 minutes ago
They should've considered the Beldame
  • Eventer1999 · Why?? She would likely be soundly beaten again. They want 3yo filly honors and running up the track twice in a row in the later half of the year won't get her any awards. · 1 hour ago
I want to see Game On Dude run in a much shorter races like BC Mile Dirt or an 8.5F races and let's see if these so called "extended sprints" horses can catch up with him. With his age, it is very hard for him to win in classic races. Bullet Bob, please take note.
  • Mary Z. · Good odds next time, maybe. I think better for him to try for the lead in a longer route, 9, 10f. So many more can last at 8 or 8.5 f. · 3 days ago
  • supercool666 · I agree with you 100%. I came on here to post exactly the same thing!! I don't want connections to run him in the BC Classic, what is the point, he CANNOT win that race, he just wont stay!!! The BC Dirt Mile would be the ideal race for Game On Dude, he has so much speed and wont tire, I would love to see him go up against Bayern and Goldencents, it would be one of the best races at the Breeders Cup! · 6 hours ago
Wilmington, Del., August 28, 2014 —All wagers were refunded in the third race at Delaware Park today due to a technical issue. A temporary communications/tote malfunction allowed the mutuel pool for the race to remain open after the race started compromising the integrity of the pool. The issue remains under investigation. Subsequent races took place without issue.
Indianapolis worked out 8/28 at Del Mar on a fast track, running 5f in 1:00.60 handily.
kaitlinfree1 don't u like hate me, yeah I'm pretty sure u hate me, anyway what im getting at here is that i'd like to apologize to you for making you hate me, and this goes to anyone else i've upset on here. "I'm Sorry"
Look like Goldencents is headed for Keeneland for the Shadwell Turf Mile to take on Wise Dan. This will be his first race on turf.

  • tmallios via Disqus · Cedar you nailed it on the head. The BC Dirt Mile has a 1 Million Dollar Purse. The Turf Mile carries a 2 Million Dollar purse. They know that more than likely Dan has lost a couple of lengths. O'neill has looked at the competition and basically said......... Why not. Also he is far from a slam dunk on the dirt. They are not kidding themselves,they know that last years track the day he ran ,contributed greatly to his win. With all the negative public outcry after that day,and the fact that the track was switched overnite. Do not expect any juiced up surface at Santa Anita for this years BC Races. · 11 hours ago
  • Mary Z. · Still figuring out this site. Remembered today that dirt sprinter-miler Dominus won the Bernard Baruch in his first turf race. Short career and only had two races after that, but he wired . · 10 hours ago
How can I get the past performance of the Brazilian breed horse.

Is there any word on when Jess's Dream or Cozmic One will run their first race
the Place colt in the 2014 Travers was done at the 1/16th pole just awaiting on anyone what was close and had the gas.....
SB can rate, stalk, close and go to the lead. Chrome, Dude, wicked strong, Tonalist all need to be on or near the lead to win. If the pace is slow,SB will go to lead, relax and run away. If the go fast, he will find a comfy spot,
  • cugel the clever · WS will beat both CC and SB wherever they next meet. He was the best horse in the Travers. He and the jock went to sleep when they made the lead in the stretch.... jock should have been paying more attention to who was coming up on the outside. He had plenty of horse left. · 12 hours ago
Give this guy credit, Curlin has had a remarkable year both on the track and off the track, Curlin gets inducted into the hall of fame this year, he's one of the top sires of 2013, he's got stakes winners from Palace Malice, to the undefeated Stopshoppingdebbie,to Moulin De Mongin, to Classic placed Ride On Curlin, to very promising two year old La Grange, and not to mention the highly anticipated debut of Jess's Dream soon, it seems like every curlin horse is either winning or running in the top 3, wether it's dirt, turf, or synthetic. He is one of the greatest of all time on the track, and now is spreading his legacy to his offsprings, hope he continues to have success and and his runners make him proud.
Best tracks to bet are those where YOU the bettor have a handle on what WINS and what does not.
In foal to Tapit
Relocated to Taylor Made Stallions
Retired and will stand at Heritage Stallions
Retired and standing at Northview Stallion Station
I saw this same sad ploy with a good one from here Wando: "get credentials on two surfaces so we can promote the stallion as multi-purpose." Won't work: his running style is that of an extended DIRT sprinter NOT a "run like the wind late mover" that is the style on the green.
Partnerships forming now. Shares available in our yearling colt by Majestic Warrior and in our 3YO filly Storm Bank. More info at www.pocketacesracing.com.

About Me

Meet Bryan Brinkmeyer – Chicago, IL


Growing up I spent a lot of days in the Bluegrass State. Although I was born and raised north of the mighty Ohio River in Southwest Indiana, I was still next door to thoroughbred racing; Ellis Park, Henderson, KY 


Likewise, the first Saturday in May was always a celebrated family event. As my two brothers and I got older the battle for picking the next winner began to heat up. In 2000, I made my inaugural Kentucky Derby appearance. Since then I’ve made it an annaual tradition because there’s no other city or weekend in the racing world like Louisville, KY on Derby Day. 


Although the story of a Kentucky Derby winner is legendary, following a champions trail is what The Kentucky Derby Post is all about. The coverage begins when the 2-yr-old preps commence but it does not quit racing until all results are official, the field is set, the picks are made and the roses are worn. But that’s not all because the road doesn’t stop on the First Saturday in May. The elusive quest for the next Triple Crown has reached 35 years so I invite my readers to remain in the saddle through all three legs as we await the next Champion of Champions. Cheers.
