Always willing to please.. Congrats!!
Not a bad day for my favorite frenchie
Majestic Harbor
Won Edgewood! What a filly! :) 6 in a row.
I'm sad to see him making his return in a G2 event against proven powerhouse sprinters. Looks like another name might be disappearing from the Undefeated Watch, but I wish him the best of luck.
He worked!! On April 30th Far From Over breezed 4f in 49.89 at Belmont Park.
Once again as a Nyquist fan, I'm bombarded with people calling Him Vulnerable, limited, over rated. Once again I think I speak for all his followers when I say "Let's get it on". Once again I'll quote Roy Jones Jr. for Nyq and say "y'all must've forgot".
Any information about her next workout or start?
Curalina smoked the field! Wow, that was one helluva race! I can't wait to see how many lengths she won by.
I think some of you are missing something. Talk of shortening her up just doesn't seem to fit the way she is bred or her past performances. Many horses just do not continue to improve as 4yr olds. They peak as 3yr olds, they have a great burst when they mature into their 3yr old year, and then they plateau. It happens. I will admit that in this situation, I do not think it is the case. There is one great glaring omission that everyone seems to be missing. The one thing that you all and Untapable herself are missing is Rosie. Think about it folks, this mare was a shining star up until Rosie retired and that is when this mare lost her luster. What happened in the winners circle right after Rosie won the BC Distaff on Untapable?? Rosie told her mother that she was pregnant and she was retiring. That was also that last race that you saw the real fire from Untapable. She ran for Rosie and now Rosie is gone.
The big question is how a horse comes from just about around the world to compete. Chrome, an older male, comes back from Dubai and gets a month off. Lani ships from Dubai and has to keep working. If he does manage to win, he is one special horse.
It's a shame she got such a late start and didn't make the Oaks... She performed well last race but obviously needed it... I believe she would have won the Oaks and I believe the only filly that can beat her now is Songbird... I've loved her from the start and believe she is special...
Very cool page! I created a wiki for Suddenbreakingnews with even more information. Please check it out at and add to it https://www.everipedia.com/suddenbreakingnews/

Easily done...

Hi there, can I just ask something out of interest. I am in the UK, and quite often I watch a horse racing channel called "At The Races", it's a cool channel and it broadcasts racing from all over the world. From 8pm onwards every evening, they always show the US racing. NOW what I would like to know is, when they show racing from Sunland Park, there's this dark haired woman who does the reports and analysis on the horses and she gives her selections ahead of each race. I find this woman INCREDIBLY annoying, she sounds like a redneck, she thinks she's funny, but she is just a pain in the butt, lol, does anyone know the woman I'm talking about??? I'd love to know. :-)
Congrats... Beautiful performance ..
Ok...this is it!! No more he say, she say, maybe this maybe that...if this then that. State you selection and give some reasoning why you choose that horse. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place finishers are irrelevant. Nyquist will win the Kentucky Derby...reasoning, most of the horses he have beaten came back to win G1 Stakes or finish in the money in G1 events. On racing observation, when he is challenge, he shows you a new gear. Improving 3yr old and learning as he goes. See you after the wire !!!
  • Elhubbo · 1. Nyquist 2. Exaggerator 3. Mohaymen 4.Brodys cause 5. Gun Runner I can't type my reasons again but I think it's easy to say these are the class of the race. They've won a bunch of money and have faced the best competition. I think Nyq clearly wins by 4 or 5, I think Exaggerator runs down everyone else to place. I expect the show to come from one of the other 3 but will play the exotics with a few others. My multi race tickets will have both Nyq and Ex, I don't see many with a chance to upset Nyquist but Exaggerator may have the kick to surprise him. · 16 hours ago
What a win in G2 Eight Belles.

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.
