This horse moved to 4 for 4 with a win in the Texas Heritage Stakes at Sam Houston. Also "Sippin" (3 year old Filly) is 7 for 7 in New Mexico. She races tomorrow in the Island Fashion at Sunland Park (prep for Sunland Oaks).
i wonder what race they pointing him to maybe Bluegrass or Wood?
93 BSF for his Risen Star win
I've been a fan of Classic Empire since last year and I'm not giving up on him. With that said, Irish War Cry is very hard to ignore. As of right now, he's my guy and I can't wait to see him in the Fountain of Youth.
if Smith had to choose between American Anthem and Mastery, which way does he go?
Did Lapenta get his silks changed? Also wasn't he Nick Zito's biggest client? When did he jump on the Pletcher express?

The KY Derby winner ain't coming out of that Risen Star bunch.
Untapable made a visit to Frankel today. She will be scanned in a few weeks to see if she's in foal.
  • Patricia King via Disqus · Wow, I love that match. Frankel and his huge stride and Untapable. I hope this cover worked. · 1 day ago

Much the best today https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7308327c32703175cf79d3e3de65edcbeac80aa5e3dc9613a718f0d72caf58da.jpg
Minutes to post in the Rachel Alexandra stakes https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0753e6eb9f83890f79ff90e28104fd73ce12c3de50ee816d37802c55225abe75.jpg
Why has Winx never shipped for the Breeders' Cup? I don't know if I've missed something or if I'm simply an amateur, but the Breeders' Cup races are some of the most prestigious in the horse racing industry, so I don't understand why the number one turf horse in the world has never participated in any of the runnings? Not looking for an argument, I'm simply curious. I've seen some people comment that Australian turf is a bit different from American turf, but is that the sole reason why she hasn't participated?

Catch a Glimpse worked 5f, February 25th, in 1:02.00 (b) finishing 8/22.
Favorable Outcome worked 4f, February 25th, in 49.55 (b) finishing 44/76.
Wake Forest worked 4f, February 25th, in 49.70 (b) finishing 7/26.
Miss Temple City worked 4f, February 25th, 47.00 (b) finishing 1/26.
What a monster of a horse. If he hadn't had shin problems as a two year old, Baffert would have had two triple crown winners in a row in my opinion.
Irish War Cry's work today was sensational, rated nicely in 13.40, 37.60, drew off by 3 in 101.80, and out huge 113.40, 127.80. Looked very professional with tons of energy left.
International Star took a very scenic route down the stretch, thought he was still going to get there.

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.
