My picks for the cigar mile are 1. Marking 2. Tonalist 3. Mshawish.
I think she deserves the Vox Populi this year.She overcame all adversity with grace and determination.Shes touched my life and I'll be forever grateful.I'm writing Lady Eli in as my 2015 Vox Populi champion.
BREAKING NEWS: Undefeated G1 winner Lady Eli will ship from Dell Ridge Farm in Kentucky to Chad Brown's Palm Meadows Stables in south Florida over the weekend. Lady Eli was deemed fit to travel as her laminitis has been contained and continues to get better. She will ship to Chad Brown but no word yet on when she will begin light training, she will take it one day at a time. The fact that Lady Eli is coming back to Chad Brown is a miraculous recovery in itself. Article on DRF to be posted later today.
Dortmund is entered to run Saturday in the Native Diver! He would have raced in the Clark on Friday had Dortmund been able to ship a day later, just bad timing. I'm hearing Gary Stevens will ride Dortmund on Saturday as Martin Garcia has two mounts on Friday and Saturday at Churchill Downs.
Mobile Bay wins. International Star 4th.
Hunter O'Riley looks more like a turfer, but finally broke his maiden on the main track at Churchill last month in a race that came off the grass. Interesting to see what he does here with Saez on board.
Words cannot describe how much I will miss seeing this horse run. As much as I love and will mis Pharoah, there was just something about Honor Code that I loved so much. Maybe it was his beauty, his stubbornness, him being from AP Indy's last crop, his incredible closing kick, or his ability to do things all on his own, I don't know but I loved this horse and I wish him a long and successful stud career, and will look forward to seeing his babies on the track. Goodbye Honor Code and thank you for the awesome memories <3
  • honor code via Disqus · Great comment💚 Honor Code was, and still is, AMAZING💚 I wrote to him after he retired, and he sent me a Honor Code hat!! I love it! Here is a picture of it😀 like we said, hes awesome😍😍😍😍 · 2 hours ago
This time of the year I like to look for horses that are improving and who have a chance to move to the top of their division next year. Race Day, Hoppertunity, Effinex and Protonico are nice horses but I think we have seen them at their best. Keen Ice, however, could be a horse that is getting it all together and growing into a top horse. A win here, and I think he has a great chance to win, could lead to a very nice 4 year old season.
I want to give Sail Ahoy another shot for sentimental reasons - But I don't know that I can here: Mohaymen/ Gift Box/ Marengo Road
-Thrilled to see Lost Raven in here. Lost Raven/Lewis Bay/Thrilled
In foal to Goldencents for 2016

Three nominees were selected by the Vox Populi Committee, and voters again have the option to write-in a racehorse of their choice. The nominees are the following: American Pharoah Beholder Rachel's Valentina Article on http://www.paulickreport.com/news/thoroughbred-racing/voting-now-open-for-secretariat-vox-populi-award-2/
Flamboyant and very productive stable likes to see their charges running, so whatever reason this one is absent, it is for a very logical reason.
Like Scarly Charly and Amelia's Wild Ride.
I will never understand how anyone can call themselves a fan of horse racing and not love this horse with all their heart. His mechanics are mesmerizing and incredibly unique. Everyone's a critic, but the critics with the most highly qualified credentials are the ones who's opinions mean the most, and they routinely fall all over themselves gushing about him.
Going with Point Piper and Rebranded
This novel im about to type probably should have been an article but since I have no access to that- it's going here. During this week every year, I like to reflect on what I am thankful for the past year. In doing this today, I started to think about what my most thankful moment of 2015 was. This led me to want to share my personal opinion of 'hose racing's 2015 moment of the year with you all. You would think it would be a tough feat, with the incredible year the racing gods blessed us with. From what was titled the showdown of the year: California Chrome versus Shared Belief in the San Antonio and impressive Derby preps including Dortmund's hard fought battles, all the way to Beholder destroying the boys in the Pacific Classic, Honor Code uncommonly winning both the Met and the Whitney in heart stopping fashion, and ending the year with the first time grand slam winner and two undefeated fantastic juveniles successfully earning their championship honors in the Breeders Cup. It's been one year of amazing races, hard fought battles on and off the track (Lady Eli) and heartwarming stories. I'm not sure what we did to deserve such a year of racing, but I am thankful and this year will be one for the memory books. When I look back and try to pin point a single 'moment' that stood by itself, and outshines the others- it is an immediate decisions for me. As impressive as American Pharoah's BC Classic win was, or how easy his Haskell win was- nothing looked more impressive or easier than his Belmont win. Everything about this race- from what he did, to the crowd, to the celebrations- cement this as the moment of the year. His amazing early speed, ability to relax once he grabbed the lead, his ease at running the sweeping Belmont turns, and his acceleration at the end of a 1.5 mile race when other horses were backing up, and his ears pricked majority of the way- stood on a pedestal of its own. I'll never forget Larry's announcement as he came to the finish line: 'finally the one', the stunned silence of the announcers during the roar of the crowd, and will never forget the feeling this moment gave me. A feeling that took 37 years to instill in most of us. A feeling that will last a lifetime. Thank you racing gods for this amazing year of thrills and talented horses. Thank you for this sport and all of the joy it brings us. Thank you American Pharoah for being the super star we hoped for, the super star we needed.
Texas Red, winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita in 2014, is undergoing preliminary training at WinStar Farm in Kentucky, trainer Keith Desormeaux said. Texas Red is expected to join Desormeaux's stable at Santa Anita next month to begin training for a 2016 campaign. Desormeaux says that there are no current plans for where Texas Red will race first, but says the Santa Anita Handicap is a race they want to point to. Article on DRF
