  • CauseForConcern · A filly that caught my attention, was Honest Lady, who ran a fast closing 2nd to Kona Gold in the '00 BC Sprint. She was past him, just beyond the finish, and he had set a track record at Churchill Downs for 6 furlongs. Check her run out. You will not see her until they are near the finish line, and she was flying. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIM8fQHHiY8 · 135 days ago ·

  • LAZMANNICK · Honest Lady came from a great family. She was a half to Chester House (the 2000 Arlington Million winner), Decarchy a $700K winner and Empire Maker (Belmont winner and top sire, etc.) Earlier in 2000 she finished second in the Met Mile when coming from 8th and last place. · 135 days ago ·

Benny The Bull was such a great sprinter. It was too bad that he didn't take to the slop in the 2007 BC at Monmouth (ran fourth) and never really got to take on Midnight Lute with his A game. I think he could've given Lute a good run.

Steve Haskin writes an interesting blog piece detailing how many of the best horses in racing today could very well skip the Breeders' Cup. Macho Again, shown winning the Stephen Foster, is one example of a horse who is targeting other races besides the Cup.Read More

  • ruby · Yes, but Macho Again stinks and would not win the BC Classic. Haskin has painted a worst-case scenario to fit his story based on this earth-shattering analysis: Any horse that ran on polytrack one time and ran poorly might not come to the BC. · 1741 days ago ·
