Wow he romped in his debut!! Definitely one to keep an eye on in the future...
Trainer Tom Amoss announces that Mo Tom will not run in the Belmont Stakes and will point for the Ohio Derby in June.
Finnegan's Wake, Red Tie Day, Bal A Bali, Royal Albert Hall.
Animals who simply run away from the field, particularly on a wet/fast surface against maiden sprinters, have never faced early pace pressure. Let's see how this one does with dirt in it's face, then you can anoint the championship.
Making her Stakes debut in name only. As i said earlier, she is a very exciiting prospect,who should be using this as a stepping stone. Her real tests will come when she is pitted against the very best. Like i said,the most exciting prospect from me.
Donnie Von Hemel announces that Mike Smith will ride Suddenbreakingnews in the Belmont Stakes.
Trainer Mark Casse says there is concern over the fact she will NOT be able to wear nasal strip at Ascot. "She's had some breathing issues in the past. She's one that is it really important that she wears (nasal strip)" Mark Casse added that likely by tomorrow they will make a final decision on whether they will go on to Royal Ascot with Tepin.
The Preakness loss emphasizes what a remarkable colt Seattle Slew was. The only trainer to guide a most demanding thoroughbred undefeated through the Triple Crown has yet to be admitted to the Racing Hall of Fame.
She worked 5 in 59. today
I see this being a race for Stradivari to lose considering there will be absolutely no pace for all the closers to come after.

  • jrem1 · I've read where Todd Pletcher is considering running him. He said he came out of the Preakness in good shape and will have some workouts and gallops with him over the next 7 or so days, and if all is well, it may be all systems go. · 23 hours ago
  • Players Klub via Disqus · There is never a quick pace anyway. But I agree with you Stradavari to the front, measured fractions, just a matter of can he get the mile and a half even at measured fractions. Not a bad strategy at all though. · 3 hours ago
I like Brody's Cause or Suddenbreakingnews for the upset. Straight: Brody's Cause(Hd)/ Exaggerator / Lani / Suddenbreakingnews
Hopefully Cherry Wine will run in the Belmont and Lanerie will choose to ride him so we can get a rider change on Mo Tom if the connections decide to run him.

Absolutely bolted up in the closing stages of the G2 Sandy Lane Stakes, winning to Donjuan Triumphant in 2nd and Gifted Master in 3rd!
I'm thrilled to see this colt returning in such good form this year. I'm hopeful he'll improve to snag himself another graded stakes win. Second on first out in such a competitive race is a good sign, IMO. :)
In looking at the upcoming race, it is fair to assume that this is Exaggerators to lose. Forget strategies, pace figures,past history or anything else you may want to toss into this equation. Exaggerator is so much the BEST RACE HORSE that will be entering the starting gate, he actually sticks out like a sore thumb. That does not automatically make him a winner, they still must run the race. But based on the data we have going in,this one looks like a SLAM DUNK. In finally watching the replay of the Preakness,i was surprised as to who i saw as the 2nd best horse on this date. It was none other than the OFT spoken about Lani. Here is a horse 25 lengths off the pace after a half mile. If verhead or a pan of the stretch. He is looking to duck in as he is coming. Once his jock straightens him out,and gets him to the outside. Lani is closing fastest of all to get into the photo for place. I do nohow this translates to him and the 12F he wnning. But from a visual perspective,he would be my choice should Ex stub his toe.

  • jrem1 · With the way it's been, he seems to get better and stronger with each race, it seems like he should be winning this Belmont. He just might be peaking, but who knows. I'm definitely thinking about keying him in the top spot and taking a few horses under him. Lani should come flying at the end. I hope he finally has a decent start out of the gate., and many seem to think SBN will be right there too. · 23 hours ago
  • Jay Harrison via Disqus · That wasn't Lani in the photo for place, it was Cherry Wine. Or maybe you didn't mean to say it like that, but that's what your sentence says. · 5 hours ago
A Shin Hikari Retire to this year. owner said on Racing Post bloodstock news (Web). http://bloodstock.racingpost.com/news/bloodstock/hirai-cant-wait-for-ascot-with-homebred-hikari/2090506/
Today's the day. We will see :)
Trying to find updates for this horse. Is he doing okay? Where is he now? What's his next race? I think he would have been fine in Preakness if Exaggerator had not cut him off and blocked him halfway round. He deserves another shot.
  • Jay Harrison via Disqus · Cut him off and blocked him? You do know that Exaggerator had a clean trip down on the rail, right? Abiding Star finished last for a reason. · 7 hours ago
  • Jbyrnes1 · Ur kidding me right, are you blind? Ur Pathetic, sorry excuse if a fan. · 7 hours ago
Stradavari to the front in measured fractions. Like DaTara in 2008. Like Nick told the jock that day. Go to the front, do not worry about Big brown or what he is doing. DaTara ticked off 24, 48, 112 won in 229 and change. Wire to wire 38-1 upset winner paid around $80.00 bucks to win. In a chat the day prior to the race Andrew Starr said DaTara would lose the race in the final strides to Big Brown. He later said he regretted that one because he wanted to pick DaTara badly. Commendable did something similar with Pat Day aboard in 2001 and won in 231! 22-1 that day 50 bucks to win on every $2. It is about getting to the front, rating and having the ability and stamina pedigree to finish the race. Not about speed here at all.
  • BeastBob via Disqus · If you go to the front and let the better horse sitting right behind you in perfect stalking position, then you will be in trouble in the stretch. There was a chart in another article here a few days ago, it showed that the Belmont Stakes were predominantly won by stalkers. · 14 hours ago
they took the winner out Sharp Azteca. also i wish they would run outwork and or unified in the belmont now they have unified and sharp azteca in the peaguses stakes at monmouth
