  • Paladin · Besides Trickmeister, Dutrow also has Boys At Tosconova and Redeemed · 836 days ago ·
  • DeadHeat · The only thing with Boys is that they are being a little too tentative with him. Trick, they obviously knew was the same horse, and with how they are being with Boys compared to Trick, i fear that they think that Boys is not the same horse he was at two. · 835 days ago ·
Trainer Agustin Bezara capped off a career afternoon on the New Year’s Day program when he saddled Reveron for a half-length victory in Sunday’s $100,000 Gulfstream Park Derby. Reveron, the first stakes success and third winner of the day for his trainer, pressed the early pace before taking and des...Read More
The inaugural running of the Gulfstream Park Derby at Gulfstream Park drew a tough, evenly matched field. Normally when handicapping races for two-year olds (three-year olds by race day), there are some factors that set a couple of entrants ahead of the rest of the field. This time, however, it woul...Read More

  • Floridaf · He put in a good race in SpecBid, that's for sure, but I'm not sure he'll be able to repeat the effort at a longer distance. If he does, I'll be the first to eat my words. · 841 days ago ·
  • BrianZipse · Today's Pick to Click is Casual Trick in the Gulfstream Park Derby. · 839 days ago ·
The 3-year-old class of 2012 debuts Sunday with the first running of the $100,000 Gulfstream Park Derby at 1 1/16 miles and a field of 11 with Michael Dubb’s Ancient Rome and Robert LaPenta’s Casual Trick among the likely choices to get early recognition on the Kentucky Derby (G1) and Triple Crown t...Read More

  • BrianZipse · Interested to see what Ancient Rome can do in the stretch out, I think Alpha will be the more serious Derby possibility. · 843 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · I am inclined to agree with you, Brian. AR gets some distance ability through his sire line, but his dam was a sprinter. He certainly looks like he will prefer the shorter distance. · 843 days ago ·
Trainer Anthony Dutrow admits he isn’t sure if his soon-to-be-3-year-old Ancient Rome will be able to stretch out around two turns, but by the time the field for Sunday’s inaugural running of the Gulfstream Park Derby hits the wire he should have a pretty good idea. “I honestly don’t know what to e...Read More
Todd Pletcher unveiled a promising juvenile at Gulfstream last Saturday. DISCREET DANCER, a son of first-crop sire Discreet Cat and a half-brother to Grade 2 Swale Stakes winner Travelin Man, broke the track record for 5 1/2 furlongs with a romping victory.  Discreet Dancer earned a 100 Beyer…Read More

Won the photo in the Spectacular Bid.
John Kimmel isn’t about to underestimate the competition in Saturday’s $100,000 Spectacular Bid Stakes at Gulfstream Park, but the veteran trainer’s primary concern will be focused on the sky. With partly cloudy skies and only a slight chance of showers forecast for the opening day of Gulfstream’s 2...Read More
Anybody care to come up with speed figures for Ancient Romes maiden victory on 10--22-11? A almost 8 length victory. Gotta love the distance of 5.5 furlongs of that race. 4 workouts in November, with 3 of them in Florida. Hes very fresh for the Spectacular Bid stakes on 12-3-11.
