Now it's official, Debbie will be breaking from the 4 hole with Rocco Bowen up and did'nt see the full field or the line.
Coolmore have announced they will pay the $120,000 Euros fee on Thursday morning to supplement G1 Yorkshire Oaks winner, Tapestry, into Sunday's G1 Prix De l'Arc de Triomphe field, and jockey Ryan Moore will have the mount. Tapestry is set to join Ruler of the World(Frankie Dettori) and Chicquita(Joseph O'Brien) as the 3rd entry into this year's Arc for trainer Aidan O'Brien.
Junior Alvarado has decided to appeal his 15 day suspension for his ride in the Jockey Club Gold Cup based on the severity of the punishment, He says that jockeys were given fewer days for similar fouls, according to DRF
Ria Antonia is not entered in the Indiana Oaks, looks like she going to the G1 Spinster on Sunday, WHY!!!! WHY, WHY!!!!!!!!!!
After a bit of drama, Frankie Dettori has been confirmed to ride Ruler of the World in the Arc. It was originally part of the deal with Coolmore and Al Shaqab that Joseph O'Brien would ride ROTW in all of his races, but on Prix Foy day JOB was required in Ireland, giving Dettori the ride and proving that he rides the horse pretty well. Ironically enough, it was Ryan Moore who has ridden ROTW in 5 of his 9 starts, winning the Derby with him, and, as of now, Ryan Moore is without a ride in the Arc

The "potential" of the car is NOT altered a bit by the driver. They can only retard the potential to varying degrees.

NICE TO SEE SOMEONE DOING SOMETHING GOOD FOR THE SAKE OF THE HORSE HE WILL BE TOUCH NEXT YEAR

Junior Alvarado has been suspended by NYRA stewards for 15 days for his ride in the Jockey Club Gold Cup, he has 48 hours to appeal or not. Confirmed by NYRA
They say his Heart was two times bigger then the normal horses heart that could explain why he won so many races ;)
This is the ONLY arena I think where a trainer REALLY can make a difference: keeping an animal OUT of contests that will negatively effect HIS running style.

  • amino998 · So other than "keeping an animal OUT of contests", all trainers are interchangable drones whose different methods REALLY matter not LOL Is the driver of a vehicle a passive or active force? · 6 hours ago
  • travel_vic · Hundreds upon hundreds of examples show that the HORSE in the force. WOuld ANYONE know Cam Gambolotti, Louie Rousell or even the old claming trainer Buddy Delp if it weren't for the fact that Spend A Buck, Risen Star, or Bid wandered into their barns. HORSES, the motive force in this game, in the hands of a basic level of horsemanship, are the thing that makes a champion. Hastings leading trainer the past several years was simply a competent horsemen until a big owner flooded his barn with excellent horses. Start with a Ferrari and it is easy to have YOUR stats (which do not represent YOUR ability but that of the animal) go up. Horses make trainers NOT the other way around. · 5 hours ago
Sweet Reason came out of Cotillion with ulcer on right eye. Has not returned to track yet; hopefully returns this weekend. Will be pointed to the BC filly and Mare Sprint, according to DRF

The Awesome Again win by Shared Belief was a HOY performance in my opinion. That horse is tough and has a lot of guts. What a great horse.
  • Hannah Etienne via Disqus · Off of that standard, why no make Wildcat Red HOTY? He is the toughest and grittyest horse out there. He won almost all of his races in the 1st half of the year. · 7 hours ago
Shared Belief overcame a lot to win this race. First 50+ mike Smith hit the ground hard in the previous race, that had to have a little effect, 50 year olds hit the ground a lot harder, at 30 mph, than 25 year olds, Second, it was obvious that whatever Smith did Espinosa was going to keep him out as long as he could, third, Fed Biz was allowed to set his fractions on the rail, fourth, Smith had to take SB back a little at the five sixteenths pole, and fifth, Imperative and Majestic Harbor are both good graded stakes horses. I would say, it's going to take something more and better to beat this guy in the BCC.

Joel Rosario has picked up the mount on Atreides for the Indiana Derby, trainer Marty Wolfson confirmed on Monday.
how is Falling Sky 63 and Palace 481?
Really ashamed what happened to Wicked Strong last weekend. If he is ok, i would really like to see him in the Classic. I am a Chromie but would really like to see WS have another chance after that disaster in the JCGC. Please rethink the decision on both horses if they are ok.
  • cedar · I trust Jerkins when he says WS came out ok, but agree with the decision to shelve him until 2015. He may not have been injured, but the ordeal could have taken more out of him than anyone thinks. Like Fort Larned last year dumping his rider at the gate in the GP Handicap followed by that poor performance in the Oaklawn, it's hard to judge the long term impact of these unfortunate events. · 8 hours ago
