Any news?

My name is Brian Zipse, and I support Illinois racing. There I said it, and you know what? I’m proud of it. While I didn’t make it down to Fairmount Park this year (it’s nearly a five-hour drive,) I did have the pleasure of frequenting two fine and very different racetracks in Arlington Park and Haw...Read More

  • BrianZipse · AJ and Haug Man? Wow, that's a blast from the past ... who is this? · 821 days ago ·
when is he racing again??
yeah, but if a horse doesn't win the G2 or doesn't finish on the board, the horse probably isn't ready
Banner Bill why do you run him in a grade 2 race but then say his goal is to run in a grade 3 race in september i dont get it i thought your goals are always higher,
people dont mention that this horse is undefeated in 3 races as well!
Now at Saratoga. Definitely going in the Saratoga Special, Grade 2, Monday, Aug. 15.
Pretty impressive to see a two year old get headed in mid-stretch and then come back to win. The 3 year old half sister, Third Chance, won an allowance ten days ago at Arlington.
Nice win today for Bill in the Colin...was not going to be denied.
Colin Stake at Woodbine on July 16th. Nominations and pp's will be out on the Woodbine web site Friday, July 1. It should attract some good ones.
Banner Bill will race next in the Colin
Ron Magers, longtime dean of Chicago newscasters and anchorman at ABC affiliate WLS in recent years, will be on hand for Saturday’s Prairie State Festival at Arlington, where he will watch his filly Third Chance, owned in partnership with Roe Conn and Bob Marcocchio, run in the Purple Violet Stakes ...Read More
Impressive winner in the Victoria. A nice 2yo by Rockport Harbor. Won going away like a horse that will keep winning at longer distances.
Banner Bill is a half brother to the listed stakes winner No Third Chance and another half sibling, Stormy Afternoon, is stakes placed. All six of his half siblings to race are winners. Banner Bill’s second dam Lemhi Go won the La Prevoyante Invitational (G-2), the Arlington Matron Handicap (G-3) and Sabin Handicap (G-3).
