What were they thinking? "Shaking my head"
We have waited, watched, talked about, and wondered for months. Now the time is finally here. Time for the creme to rise to the top. It's Breeders Cup TIME!!!Read More
Worth Repeating – The California-based runner, who was one of three horses listed as 5-1 second choices for the Breeders’ Cup Marathon, was withdrawn from the race Friday morning by trainer Mike Machowsky. “After training yesterday morning he wasn’t quite right,” Machowsky said. “Last night I had m...Read More
Alpha – Godolphin Racing’s Alpha galloped 1 1/2m under exercise rider Rob Massey at Santa Anita Thursday morning in preparation for a scheduled start in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic. The Kiaran McLaughlin-trained 3yo colt then visited the starting gate. “He was super,” McLaughlin said.Read More

Looking at this one, I can't help but think, if they really want to try dirt then why not the Marathon? I get the blinkers since he does seem to hang, and who knows if the dirt will move him up, but I think 10f will be too short. We know he's long winded, so i doubt the marathon distance will bother him, if anything it may enhance his chances. Marathon seems to be a much more logical choice.
  • gelded1 · This horse hasn't looked good for a while now. Dirt isn't his best surface. What puzzles me is he ran one of his best races on the all weather track at Keeneland in the Bluegrass stakes and won and they have failed to run again on the synthetic tracks. I just think this one has been run in over his head and his will to win just isn't there. Running in the classic on dirt will be a waste of time for him in my opinion. · 541 days ago ·
Last year's Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) winner Brilliant Speed will be geared toward a start in the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) at Santa Anita Park Nov. 3, trainer Tom Albertrani said Oct. 16. The 4-year-old son of Dynaformer is already scheduled to stand at Robert N. Clay's Three ...Read More

  • jmcleav · I've always respected Speed, never noticed how often he's been in the money, being by Dynaformer I imagine his connections are excited at their prospects. · 547 days ago ·
  • gelded1 · I think his best surface is synthetics but someone failed to realize this fact.He won the Bluegrass stakes on synthetics and failed to even run on another track with the same surface. Puzzling??He just hasn't looked good at all running this year. I'm wondeing if he is completely sound? · 547 days ago ·
Can someone agree with me that he should be moved back to the dirt or synthetic.
Favored Air Support caught front-running Bombaguia in the final yards and got his head in front at the wire to win Saturday’s Grade 2, $200,000 Bowling Green Handicap, the opening-day feature for Belmont Park’s 37-day fall meet.Read More
Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey, who concluded a successful Saratoga meet by saddling Hit It Rich to win the Grade 3 Glens Falls, looks to continue the momentum on opening day at Belmont Park when he sends out Air Support in Saturday’s Grade 2, $200,000 Bowling Green Handicap.Read More
Three Chimneys purchased a "significant interest" in Brilliant Speed prior to his third place in the Sword Dancer. I was looking forward to this colt running next year. Hope he still does, but he's desired for his second career as a stallion, having the late Dynaformer as his sire.
Grade 1 winner Zo Impressive was resting comfortably in her stall Sunday morning, the day after suffering a condylar fracture in her right front leg running fourth behind Questing in the Grade 1, $600,000 Alabama Stakes. Read More
Point of Entry powered through the stretch Saturday and easily won the Grade 1, $600,000 Sword Dancer Invitational at Saratoga Race Course. Read More
  • AndyScoggin · Dominant performance for Point of Entry's second grade one win of the summer. · 607 days ago ·
  • forego139 · WOW, no question Point Of Entry is for real, that was one awesome performance and if he makes the trip out West for the BC Turf Acclamation is looking at running second at best, thats of course he make's it to the BC Turf with his pysical issue's. · 607 days ago ·
On Saturday, Turbo Compressor will go after the biggest score of his career when he heads a field of nine in the 38th running of the Grade 1, $600,000 Sword Dancer Invitational at Saratoga Race Course.Read More
Brilliant Speed has not won a race since last September, when the Live Oak Plantation homebred scored in the Grade 3 Saranac at Saratoga Race Course. Since then, he has run six times, five in Grade 1 turf stakes races, and not found his way to the winner’s circle. Read More
They should move him back to the dirt.
