What the Nation is saying about Broken Sword...

Sent from the gate, 6-5 favorite Broken Sword set a fast early pace, setting up the late run of 16-1 longshot Spellbound, who was dead last, 17 lengths off the lead in a field of seven past the half mile pole and rallied four-wide at the quarter to get up and win Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 La Canad...Read More

  • Mary Z. · About Broken Sword, just in looking at her record, there was a long gap between her first two starts, so maybe there was a very good reason to bring her back "slowly" with the result that she kicked ass at BHP, in the Bayakoa, which I don't know how many times I read post by others saying how it plays closest to dirt of the synthetic tracks. So much for the ducking. You can go to the source to find out about any decisions, but why should they be explained? Or just make stuff up. Another thing is, she runs quite nicely on turf, so I would call her versatile. · 92 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · BHP, for myself at least I handicap it as a dirt surface and lose nothing in doing so as compared to other synthetic surfaces where I just don't bother as I do poorly. The exception to that would be Tapeta which I have no trouble with. That brings up something I've wondered about for a long time. The old synthetic at Santa Anita played just like turf as history shows both by race shape and horses who did well there. I'm curious why they never gave Zenyatta a chance on the turf. · 92 days ago ·

  • tmallios1 · The Ashland is an excellent suggestion. But just for my knowledge.Just like in the other thread with the other filly. You and many others must think that this years crop of 2yo coltts is bad. You are trying to run 2nd string fillies against them in the premiere prep races for the Derby.I like this filly alot,but in 4 tries against her own sex she could not win. Maybe ley her accomplish something ,before shooting for the moon. She ran big,but the fillies that beat her,would not crack a Top 15 list.This list would consist of all 2yos'. · 130 days ago ·

I have fallen in love again and her name is broken sword. Watch out for her next year in the older mares races at santa anita. best preformance ive seen since the breeders cup with wtc clark win second
So now we look ahead to 2013. The easiest prediction centers around Baze. Barring injury, Baze should eclipse the 12,000 win mark in his career as he needs just 186 wins for the milestone. Assuming Baze has his usual three hundred plus win season, he should hit the mark sometime around June. Now we ...Read More

does anyone know what has happened to this filly, I'm currently breeding a half sister to her dam katana who was a top filly here in NZ
I spent my first full season on the fair circuit traveling just about every weekend to keep up on all the happenings. From as close as Pleasanton to as far away as Fresno, I put quite a few miles on my car but I must say I had a blast. I met a lot of new people and made some friends that I will be l...Read More

  • travel_vic · I was there in the 70's and had great seats high but right on the finish line. It was so hot that we left after7 races and BEFORE a jock was killed on the clubhouse turn right in front of his family. Glad to have missed that. · 549 days ago ·
