Kentucky (USA) by Germania Farms, Inc.

What the Nation is saying about Amerigo Vespucci...

The Derby Trail heads north to the The Big Apple for its only legitimate (i.e. Derby point system) prep race of the weekend. Do you think Johnny Velazquez took the mount on Overanalyze, leaving warm sunny Florida for chilly New York just because he could also take in a Broadway show? Read More

  • Sully · I decided to put a pre-scratch P6 together. I'm positive there will be some scratches though. My P6 spread ticket is 4-1,8 w 1,4-3 w 2,4 w 2,9 w 1,7-3 w 4-1,7. If anyone wants to know how spread tix work, just let me know. Just like everything in life, they have their positives and their negatives, but I like them to include "what-if" options. · 413 days ago ·
  • Sully · Oh, and this P6 spread ticket, as-is, would cost you $192. · 413 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · So many final times were buoyed up by TEPID fractions and many a slower time was the result of enormous earlier battles overcome....Final time? IT means zip standing alone. · 414 days ago ·
The Gotham Stakes gets its name from the nickname for New York City. Gotham became popularized when in 1940 the Batman comic book identified the home of the caped crusader as Gotham City. Read More

There are three (3) Derby prep races on Saturday... The Withers @ Aqueduct, Robert B. Lewis @ Santa Anita and Sam F. Davis @ Tampa Downs. All 3 are graded, carry a purse of $200k and run at 1 1/16 miles, yet only 2 out of 3 award the all important "Derby Points". Read More

  • icyhotboo · "I agree 100% about picking & choosing your spots, but as a service to HRN readers, I provide my opinions on Derby preps as well as MD races. To think that in every one of those races, my opinion MUST NOT be the M/L favorite is insane."Gary Quill/Yes, your position is much different than someone making a wager only for themselves. As you stated you have other considerations which would seem apparent, but obviosly there not. After a while you'll get used to having to explain what should be an easy assumption. I'm a little tired so I didn't look at all your plays but, your selection and wagering structure on the SAM F. DAVIS was something I especially liked. Hope you don't mind, but if you did, or were to wager on that race privately (SAM F. DAVIS) without regard to your article, would you have included the superfecta? Anyway nice job. I'll keep you on my radar. · 438 days ago ·
  • marylandgq · @icyhotboo; To answer your question, YES. I play what I post, so the Sam Davis play was a nice hit. As far as SUPERFECTA's, I don't play them.... never ever! Just not my style, but thanks for pointing out that I should have had the SUPER based on the horses used in my TRI. · 434 days ago ·

  • goblin · @george.obrien.3557, The horses who would not have made the Derby field last year were Liaison, Done Talking, and Trinniberg according to this Thoroughbred Times article. This information is located in the very last paragraph, but there is much more to the article, including points earned by past Derby winners over the last 15 years. http://www.thoroughbredtimes.com/racing-news/2012/06/14/points-based-system-will-determine-kentucky-derby-field.aspx · 442 days ago ·

  • AndyScoggin · Brian, it sure was a speed favoring track yesterday! It is a pretty interesting field. I can't believe that Notacatbutallama will be 10-1. · 473 days ago ·
It’s a long way from the first Saturday in January to the first Saturday in May, but for eight newly minted 3-year-olds, the 143rd running of the Grade 2, $200,000 Jerome at Aqueduct Racetrack could serve as a road map to the future. Read More
