  • daniclint · Golden Ticket beats Prospective if he hadn't dropped to the rail. The middle of the track was live at Tampa yesterday the rail was dead. · 765 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · A better explanation since Prospective was on the rail for the first half of the race is the better horses were running in the middle of the track where 89% of winners everywhere run on dry fast tracks. · 765 days ago ·
The final graded route prep at Tampa Bay Downs for Kentucky Derby 2012 hopefuls will be run on March 10 and the full field is reduced by one with the defection of Take Charge Indy. #10 Take Charge Indy (3-1) added a touch of class to this event and figured to make his presence felt throughout but hi...Read More

Got to love a horse with two top 1 1/8 efforts this early. Another move forward in the Tampa Bay Derby makes him a top Derby contender
  • abegane · He's going to need a new jockey. Castellano maybe. I might bet him in pool 2 wagering... big odds. · 773 days ago ·
Today's Derby contender works featured a four furlong breeze from G3 Withers hero Alpha. The Kiaran McLaughlin trainee will go next in the March 31 Florida Derby or April 7 Wood Memorial. Gemologist, Groovin' Solo, and Ever So Lucky fired bullets on Saturday. Read More

Today's Derby contender works featured a four furlong breeze from G3 Sham and G3 Delta Jackpot show finisher Longview Drive. The Jerry Hollendorfer trainee has shipped to Oaklawn Park for Monday's G3 Southwest Stakes. Read More
There is something about this horse. I can't put a finger on it, but he seems to have a lot of fight in him. Love his stretch run in the Davis. I think that he will be a strong factor in the Tampa Bay Derby, and position himself for another G2 before the Derby field is set.
Hansen, last year’s Champion 2-Year-Old Male and winner of the Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (Grade I) at Churchill Downs last November, sits atop the official Kentucky Derby Graded Stakes Earnings list that will likely determine the participants for the 138th running of the $2 million Kentucky ...Read More

With the first of three Kentucky Derby Future Poolsoffered this weekend, it's a good time to share a somewhat informed wageringdecision or better yet, one that requires little to no information at all. Read More
The road to Kentucky Derby 2012 made stops in Florida and Southern California on Feb 4 and the G3 Sam Davis and G2 Robert Lewis Stakes both produced surprising results.Read More
  • champion2011 · According to Jeremy Plonk on drf.com: GROOVIN SOLO (Myung Kwon Cho) finished third, but had his number taken down for the incident with LIAISON, which placed him last. Regardless of the placing, this was a decent effort as he exited a mile maiden win with a much more stern test. Moving in the right direction, he’s a horse who would not be a surprise to see peaking around the Santa Anita Derby. · 796 days ago ·

  • shadowno · Daniel, nice angle & something to consider. Do you have any idea if these horses are all physically housed and training at HP? · 797 days ago ·
  • ghelguera · That's how I've been handicapping Santa Anita races this meet. Horses that work well at Hollywood run great at Santa Anita and the prices you get on these horses are great! · 797 days ago ·
A trio of Kentucky Derby 2012 graded route preps were run across the nation last weekend and G3 Withers hero Alpha emerged as a potential threat on the first Saturday in May. Alpha (90 BSF) owns an ascending numbers pattern and has now won back-to-back stakes races at Aqueduct. He is returning to Fl...Read More

  • cocoa2 · The Kentucky Derby is set up for a closer, and that is Union Rags. However, Hansen might be able to get the Preakness. The Belmont is anyone's. · 799 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · That is very true, but Santiva has also run 2nd in the G1 Dixiana Breeders' Futurity in his previous start. This is definitely not an orthodox trainer, though. · 802 days ago ·
  • Winplacsho · Didn't think Battle Hardened would get bet down to 9/2 from 12/1 morning line, but he ran his eye balls out from a extreme outside post in his previous race at GP. The way he rated Saturday was very encouraging since he didn't pass a horse in the stretch of his first 2 route races. · 800 days ago ·
