What the Nation is saying about American Lion...

Darby Dan Farm will utilize the Share The Upside concept for breeders in 2012 with its new stallion American Lion.The Share The Upside concept was introduced as a program by Spendthrift Farm's B. Wayne Hughes in 2010 in an effort to give breeders a vested interest in a new stallion as a bonus for th...Read More
i dont think flores is the right jockey for american lion i think rosario or nakatani is the fit for him plus horses dont like the hot weather they like the cold they tried him on the turf and did not do to well they should try him on the nyra circuit for a few races plus they would have a better shot with him winning on the turf down there cause the turf is much softer than the cali tracks turf after talking to eoin harty he did not really like the hard turf surface and needs a change
Wednesday’s Pick 6 from Del Mar includes a carryover of more than $239,000. The feature race is the $85,000 Wickerr Stakes for 3-year-olds and up traveling a flat mile on the turf course and morning line favorite Blue Chagall is the defending champ. Partly cloudy skies are expected with a high tempe...Read More
In his first race since the 2010 Kentucky Derby, American Lion finishes fourth in his return to the races yesterday at Hollywood Park.
Making his second start after a layoff, Golden Itiz ran past Red Door Drive in the closing yards to win the $70,000 allowance feature Sunday at Hollywood Park.   Upsets were the rule later in the card, so there will be Pick 6 carryover of $108,788 when racing resumes Thursday. Post time is 1 p...Read More

Apparently, American Lion is not retired after all. Saw him on Brisnet.com's Workout Patrol list for 5/25 (today). "Dual Grade 3 scorer AMERICAN LION (Tiznow), unraced since finishing 11th in the 2010 Kentucky Derby (G1), geared up for his four-year-old bow by clocking a half-mile in :50 1/5." ~ The Handicapper's Edge on Brisnet. So we might see him in action in mid- to late summer.
I don’t know about you, but some horses immediately stand out for me. They grab my attention the first time I see them, and I know right then that I will be a fan for as long as they race. Yawanna Twist is just such a horse. I happened to see his first race on television the day after Christmas on 2...Read More

  • Waya · I also bet Yawanna in the Preakness and thought he might get there at one point. Do you think a mile is a better distance for him than a 1 1/4 miles? · 1169 days ago ·

  • zatt · I would not discount him yet going longer, but my feeling is that shorter or middle distances will be his forte. I could seeing him winning plenty of races up to 9 furlongs, but as much as I like him, I honestly do not have him on my BC Classic radar right now. · 1169 days ago ·

The performance of the week was turned in by Paddy O'Prado in the Grade 2 Colonial Turf Cup. The Kentucky Derby show finisher graduated in the Grade 3 Palm Beach over the Gulfstream weeds and clearly enjoyed his turf return. He sat a ground saving tactical trip before switching out and making a deci...Read More
It is now more than two weeks since the conclusion of the Triple Crown and more than seven weeks since we have seen many of the horses that started only in the Kentucky Derby (gr. 1) presented by Yum! Brands. Four of the contenders from the Derby-Preakness-Belmont trail returned to the races recentl...Read More
The performance of the week was turned in by Trappe Shot. His razor sharp Allowance win on the Belmont Stakes undercard earned him a 105 BSF. The promising son of Tapit has now won three straight in easy fashion and will try two turns next. Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin is expected to shoot for the Trav...Read More
The performance of the week was turned in by Ibboyee in the Spend a Buck Stakes at Monmouth Park May 23. The NY-bred, trained by Todd Pletcher, turned the tables on Afleet Again and verified the strength of the G3 Withers Stakes. Note that Withers show finisher Spangled Star is pointing to the Belmo...Read More
I think American Lion is still learning. I hope he comes back soon.
The performance of the week was turned in by Preakness hero Lookin At Lucky. Kudos to Bob Baffert for going against the grain and giving Martin Garcia the nod over Garrett Gomez. The latter was not to blame for a troubled Derby journey but needed to be replaced from a karma perspective. The move pai...Read More
