What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Bet Twice...

When the American Graded Stakes Committee came out with its listing of U.S. Graded and Listed Stakes Races for 2014 yesterday, the downgrading of one race hit home more than any of the others. As of next year, Monmouth Park’s Sapling Stakes will no longer be a graded stakes race. That’s a shame, as ...Read More

  • buckpasser · It took about 40 to be guaranteed a spot in the gate, so perhaps if you spread the points around to more races so that top finish isn't ten but less might work and encourage more racing and have more tracks getting done top horses for their fans. · 128 days ago ·
  • buckpasser · That should be some top horses for their signature events. · 128 days ago ·
Affirmed and Alydar. You cannot say the name of one of these magnificent thoroughbreds without including the other. No matter that Affirmed hit the wire first in eight out of the ten, their rivalry was as good as racing gets. Back then, their exploits drove the sport, and together their names made i...Read More

After watching several of the Kentucky Derbies from the 70s and the 80s, my conclusion that I missed out on all the best runnings of the race was solidified.Read More
In commonly-used American slang, the words java and mud refer to coffee, the morning booster most of us need before we can begin our day. In the horse racing world, java and mud refer to the 1987 Travers Stakes. On Saturday, August 22nd, 1987, over 45,000 racing fans jammed into the historic Saratog...Read More

“You never make excuses for great horses.” That’s what the late Johnny Campo, trainer of 1981 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Pleasant Colony, said after the Buckland Farm runner finished third behind Summing and Highland Blade in the Belmont Stakes. Read More
I’ll Have Another will try to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978 when he runs in the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 9. Since Spectacular Bid in 1979, eleven 3-year-olds have won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness only to fail in their Triple Crown quest at Belmont Park. Spec...Read More

  • AnnaK · Would love a Triple Crown, mostly because it would pull people in to the races, (already started I like to think), plus IHA is such a strong red engine and Mario is excellent, that it just might be. Can't see Dullahan doing it, 27 in the last q good to know, that fancy inefficient leg work, so IHA and UR and anyone else can duke it out. · 696 days ago ·
  • cocoa2 · Icy, Dullahan is the best Allowance horse I have ever seen, especially since he has won graded stakes. Or was I not to take you literally? · 695 days ago ·
Another one who is nowhere near being in the Top 100, but a nice horse.
Say what you will about how the pace unfolded in yesterday’s Super Derby, but one thing you cannot deny is that the winner is a horse on a roll … and a Derby roll at that. Undefeated now in four starts in 2011, Prayer For Relief first jumped on the Derby train with a win in Prairie Meadows’ Iowa Der...Read More

  • DeadHeat · He has not overly impressed me. It is easy to rack up wins when the competition you face is so inferior to you. I'm glad he is taking his game to a new level, but I don't see him hitting the board in the Classic. · 946 days ago ·

  • BrianZipse · Fantastic field, just a shame it was so wet ... didn't I say that about '81 as well? Java Gold was a powerhouse who seems to be somewhat forgotten. Mack Miller thought he was his best. · 966 days ago ·
Early in the summer I remember several of the Monmouth Park writers having a discussion about the quality of racing after The Haskell. Which hearkens the question: Is there life after The Haskell?Read More

  • skipaway2000 · I think if Shackleford wins the Haskell, he is 3yo champ - unless a 3yo wins the BCClassic · 997 days ago ·
  • AndyScoggin · It will be interesting to see who runs in and wins the Travers, especially if Shackleford or Ruler on Ice do not win the Haskell. · 996 days ago ·
Hello Haskell, my old friend. It's almost time for you again... A child of the Garden State, there is no race so deep in my being as Monmouth's signature mile and an eighth. I still have goosebumps begotten of great Haskell's past, like the day Majestic Light scorched the summer earth, or the way Fi...Read More

  • Mike in SB · Great blog, Silver Charm and Free House were two of my favorite horses, but I don't consider Silver Charm an eastern horse, he was trained and stabled in California and ran the majority of his races in California. I believe the best East-West rivalry of the 1980's was Sunday Silence and Easy Goer. · 1007 days ago ·
  • skipaway2000 · I think the best rivalry that actually happened in the 2000's was among the Class of 2007 - Street Sense, Curlin, Hard Spun (& to a lesser extent Any Given Saturday) beat up on each other all year, in all of the major 3yo races. They all even showed up in the BC Classic. That's a great rivalry. Nice work on the retrospective :) · 1007 days ago ·
I can remember the image like it was yesterday. And why not? I saw it enough times. The handsome bay colt, his regally arched neck so low you could swear he was looking between his legs. And those strides: smooth and effortless, always reaching out for more ground. Before the  term “in the zone...Read More
Ever since I was a very young racing fan, I have always looked forward to The Fountain of Youth Stakes. Perhaps as a youngster it was the catchy name that caught me eye, but as the first serious Kentucky Derby prep for the Eastern three-year-olds, no doubt it has been the stature of the race has kep...Read More

By STEVEN CRIST Published: June 7, 1987 LEAD: Bet Twice, a narrow runner-up in both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, reversed those decisions with a vengeance in the 119th running of the Belmont Stakes yesterday to deprive Alysheba of racing's Triple Crown. Read More
