Pulling for him in Matt Winn, looks strong and will breakthrough
returns amongst Tapiture, Cleburne, Conquest Titan, and the Admiral
If recent history has shown us anything. It is that the Stars that entertained us through the TC prep races and the actual TC will more than likely be a memmory. The grueling task of chasing that glory(before they are even fully developed) seems to take its toll. It is now time for the new Supporting cast to take on the role of Leading Man in a Drama series.. Tonalist threw his hat in the ring at Belmont Park yesterday. An impressive ,yet unknown 3yo on the Wrong Coast is looking to grab that honor >>> He goes by the screen name .....Shared Belief. My pick is the thread headliner,tune in to CD this Saturday. I think Byrne has got him right. Maybe it is me,but this guy has that "WOW" factor when he gets good. Who is your pick this year as the WTC of 2014?

  • tmallios · See S1 ,although not true . Ha a better ring to it. Now if you dug up the ghost of John Barbaro. Then you are there. · 46 days ago
  • sullivan1 · alright ill stick with it i do like the ring to it · 46 days ago
On June 8th, he worked 4F in :48.80 over Fast Dirt at CD finishing 12/51
Tommorrow in the 5th at CD he is making his return to the races. Good luck to him and Byrne. This horse is just to good to be in the backdrop. Heres hoping that he finally shines and shows his true ability.

  • tmallios · I saw Jay. Patrick also told me that he ran a "5" on the Rags, not bad considering his previous top was an 11. Nice development and hopefully now this guy will fulfil the promise he showed as a 2yo. Good luck to you guys. · 55 days ago
Ran a big one today and the Matt Winn seems like a logical next race.
On May 21st he worked 3F in :38.20 over Fast Dirt at CD finishing 9/15
On May 14th he worked 3F in :36.40 over Sloppy Dirt at CD finishing 4/20
On April 20th he worked 5F in 1:00.20 over Fast Dirt at CD finishing 5/51.
Morning line odds of 8-1.

On Jan. 12th he fired a 5F bullet work in 1:00.10 at Palm Meadows in preparation for the Holy Bull.
On Dec. 18th he fired a 4F bullet in :48.40 over at Palm Meadows finishing 1/23.
In the NY area,Nyra on off days airs a show called Raceday. Its' co hosts are ex great Jockey Richard Migliore and Ernie Munick(an HRN contributing poster). A feature of the show is that they take Emails from the public. The Migs opinion is of the highy respected in the industry.He was on the Breeders Cup feeds the past 2 years and was highly acclaimed. I asked him for his opinions on Famous. He said he had not seen him race,but would look at the replay and opine. What he said later shocked and impressed me.I had heard the same from Byrne and Borel. Mig said that Famous was one of the greatest movers on the track he had ever seen. He had a question regarding as to how he might handle adversity. A very fair point regarding horses that win easily. But was very impressed. For those that do not know,the Mig i believe is the All Time race winner on A queducts inner track.
The heavy favorite for the Ky Jockey Club is scratched.
Almost Famous worked 3f on 11/21/13 in preparation for the Kentucky Jockey Club. Time was 36.40 which was 2 of 4 at the distance.

Almost Famous is entered in a 1 1/16-mile allowance race at Churchill Downs on Saturday, Nov. 9. The son of Unbridled’s Song was purchased for $500,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Florida 2-year-old sale in March. Corey Lanerie will be the third rider in as many races for Almost Famous, who has drawn the rail post against nine rives in the 1 1/16-mile contest that will be his first effort at a two-turn distance.
On October 19th, Almost Famous worked 5f in 1.02:00 at Churchill Downs.
