duelazo, muchachos, si se da this match
Connect won; Gift Box second! Time was 1:48.69. Nicely done by Chad Brown's starters!
Great Race!! On to the Travers now let's get this next one
Per the Bloodhorse Mark Casse said Tepin will not run in the Fourstardave and may be pointed for the Ballston Spa instead. It is not definite as the Woodbine Mile is still her main objective but a possible matchup against the returning Lady Eli would be one of the highlights of the meet.
Mark Casse announced today that Tepin will pass the Fourstardave and may be pointed to the Ballston Spa on August 27 instead. That would be a matchup against Lady Eli as Chad Brown has said that will be Lady Eli's comeback race. Casse stated thet the Woodbine Mile is still the major target for Tepin but the Ballston Spa may be used as a prep.
YESS!! Connect wins!! Another Stakes winner for Curlin, gamely holds off Gift Box. A son of Curlin wins the Curlin Stakes. NICE!!
Sensational effort in a very good time on a demanding surface.
How great is it that Curlin is trending nationally on twitter.
Way to go Connect. Another stakes winner for Curlin. Wins his dads race. ( Cutlin Stakes)
Gift Box Uncle Vinny Forever D"oro Connect
Alabama? Perfect. Go up against Songbird and see how good OTT is... Songbird is just a thrill to watch.
Sad news as claibornefarm announces that MG1 winner and top sire Seeking The Gold was euthanized July 28 from infirmities of old age at 31.
  • Goblin · Know it has to be very sad for the caregivers at Claiborne as they say good-bye to their long time stallion. His pedigree is literally replete with legends of the track; and he sired wonderful runners such as Dubai Millennium, Flanders, Heavenly Prize and others. He will be greatly missed. RIP, Seeking The Gold. · 6 hours ago
Interesting move by the Exaggerator connections sending him to Monmouth. I read that he had two "dull" workouts in Saratoga so I'm assuming they're sending him here hoping the surface change will help. Hard to see Nyquist losing here though due to the fact that Monmouth is all about speed and he has the ability to win from the front (assuming Gutierrez doesn't gas him out again). In either way it should be a good race. I think Gun Runner is perfect for this distance and I'm just sitting here waiting for Brody's Cause to return to his 2 yo form as well.
  • Lkb via Disqus · Probably has something to do with the fact they are expecting rain Sunday in NJ and not on Saturday in NY. · 2 days ago
  • Jerzmade · Totally scared Brody's cause away I'm pissed cuz I wanted to see Brody's cause in person my. Brothers name is Brody so it was gonna be a exotic play As well lol · 7 hours ago
Indeed Paladin, and one has to praise Claiborne Farms for taking such wonderful care of this fine stallion. Green pastures and former acquaintances await Seeking The Gold, he won't be alone. Rest in Peace dear Seeking The Gold.
Be interesting to see Nyquist off a long layoff. I still believe he's the beast of this field,but Mario needs to be a little more patient,and not get into a speed duel with Gun Runner.Nyquist can rate,but I feel Gun Runner will have a lot to say about the outcome. May all horses and jocks stay safe.

About Me

Meet Bryan Brinkmeyer – Chicago, IL


Growing up across the river from the Bluegrass State I was able to spend a lot of summer days at Ellis Park, Henderson, KY. 


Likewise, the first Saturday in May was always a celebrated family event. In 2000, I made my inaugural Kentucky Derby appearance and since, I have made it an annual 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, a champions trail is what The Kentucky Derby Post is all about. The coverage begins when Juvenile season starts and continues until the field is set, the picks are in and the roses are earned.
