What the Nation is saying about Afleet Alex...

Success for Will Take Charge as a 4yo will not be the thing that bucks a trend, but rather his connections’ willingness and sportsmanship in bringing him back for moreRead More

With all the excitement of the recently completed Triple Crown, I have not had a chance to venture into the racing laboratory of late. I put a stop to that trend late last night. I put on my racing lab coat, turned on the Bunsen burners, started mixing potions, and tested any and all hypothesis that...Read More

Afleet Alex and his young jockey, Jeremy Rose were the story of the 2005 Preakness. That the talented colt somehow managed to stay upright coming out of the far turn, before rolling to a strong win in racing’s Middle Jewel was nothing short of fantastic. The victorious pair were not the only story i...Read More

  • derek.getty · Orb looked like a heavyweight boxer surrounded by bodyguards down the backstretch in the Preakness. When he tried to move, Lucas' other horse did everything in his power to stop him and did, let alone all the others. Oxbow won because Stevens was given a gift. He even said it himself. The question is will he get another one? I doubt it. The Belmont is all about breeding, just ask Smarty Jones. Whoever wins on the 8th will be bred to run that far and a whole wack of these are not.

Given a confident ride by Joe Talamo, Iotapa rolled home to a facile score in the $70,000 Railbird Stakes today at Betfair Hollywood Park.

The new points system has had enough debate. Let’s take a more radical look at the Kentucky Derby and think about what would change if the maximum field were 14. Read More

  • icyhotboo · "He doesn't necessarily have to win Saturday to go to the (Kentucky) Derby, but he has to run the right kind of race. If he doesn't, we won't go. I want the horse to take me there." McGaughey/ If more owner trainers let the horse guide them, they wouldn't have to set a 20 horse limit, because about half of them in a 20 horse field aren't ready or are strictly sprinters that clog up the field at some point and foul it up for others when they rapidly fall back. · 388 days ago ·

With the Rebel Stakes coming up, this race reminds me of the worst performance for Afleet Alex. This would be his lone off-the-board finish. Otherwise, always a contender. Where are you, Lazmannick? I miss you. And your absence is starting to worry me. Still hoping the best for you, Laz. Try and keep me posted.

  • travel_vic · THIS one had a great future ahead of him: lots of potential to do amazing things, but we were robbed of ever seeing that come to fruition. The Preakness alone screamed what this colt was all about. · 403 days ago ·

His Preakness is probably the best comeback race ever after Scrappy T cut him off. Was an all-heart preformance.

  • cocoa2 · Plan of attack? I just like watching the horses. When "I" bet it's usually a show bet just for a winning ticket. I've only tried two vertical bets, both exactas. One idiot one at Hawthorne where we found out after that the horses we picked (3rd and 4th place of course) were the two biggest longshots. ROFL. · 456 days ago ·
