What the Nation is saying about Buster's Ready...

For last year’s juvenile thoroughbreds, Saratoga Race Course was the ideal place to debut.   Numerous 2-year-olds who launched their careers at Saratoga in 2010 have gone on to win graded stakes, with three winning Grade 1 events, two garnering Breeders’ Cup victories, and one earning Eclipse h...Read More

I was all prepared to write that there are simply too many prep races today.

  • LAZMANNICK · I think that the concept of Super Saturday is great. It always has been. I was really looking forward to the day, but came away feeling kind of empty as if to ask the question, this is it? One concern is that the top level talent is spread very thin. The Beldame with five fillies, the favorite and one with a possible upset chance, and others that didn’t belong including LAT. Not much suspense. The Kelso scratched down to four entrants. There was possibly more suspense in wondering if Mo would move forward from the King Bishop and some suspense with J Bend because that one is an improving sort. Mo definitely was the highlight of the day. The Turf Classic maybe gave American Turf racing a bit of a shot in the arm. Cape Blanco was certainly all out to beat Dean’s Kitten and yet that one wasn’t all that far behind him when third in the Million. The Flower Bowl was a romp for Stacelita with the others all running for second money. The Vosburgh was the best race on the card in terms of depth of talent with some good sprinters and yet Giant Ryan dominated. Maybe the trouble at the start where Euroears and Apriority were taken out made it easier for him. What’s up with Trappe Shot? The JCGC was an extremely weak field for such a revered race. No G1 wins in a so called open G1 race. Flat Out’s first G1 win was dominant IMO. Stay Thirsty was a bust against older on a track he ran well on in the Belmont. Super Saturday used to be just that, but not anymore I’m afraid. · 931 days ago ·

  • annmatt · I loved Super Saturday, followed by the Arc races on Super Sunday morning and then a few lesser races Sunday afternoon! But this was my first such Super weekend! I came up with my own version of “speed watching” wall-to-wall races. I discovered how to watch all of this action without getting overwhelmed. With a little organization and a couple of online services, it was a snap. After experiencing racing online, I actually prefer it to the slower pace of watching on national television primarily because I can tailor the viewing experience to my own tastes and pace! This type of action has to appeal to younger fans, I would think, since their attention span is about 20 seconds! Once all the services get up to speed with HD, I think watching horse racing online is the best way to experience the sport. Am I the last one to know this and do others "speed watch" the races this way? Am I weird? · 929 days ago ·

  • ajump08 · Only fact I'm scared of is that of Mo's three 2yo races, the Champagne was by far the least impressive. I think he's better than ever, and ten times the best horse in this field. Even if Belmont isn't his favorite track, he should beat these with authority. He is that good. Remember what he did in the King's Bishop was off a long layoff, horses improve second out the majority of the time. · 938 days ago ·

Mike Repole's duo of Stay Thirsty and Uncle Mo turned in five-furlong breezes Sunday morning at Belmont Park for their respective races on Super Saturday, October 1, the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational and the Grade 2 Kelso Handicap. Read More
  • medlocke · Mark my words. Stay Thirsty will fare a lot better in this year's BC Classic than Uncle Mo will. Mo is not anywhere near ready for a run at the Classic this season. Pletcher and Repole are asking a lot of Mo to run 1-1/4 at Churchill Downs, which is one of the most demanding 1-1/4 of any track in the country, with only one run over 7f coming off of a long lay-off. Which saw him battling a life threatening liver ailment besides. I'm not really sure what Repole and Pletcher are thinking here? But Mo should definitely have been toward the Dirt Mile this year. The winner's share of the Dirt Mile purse, which I feel like Mo would dominate, is a lot better than no share of the Classic purse. Uncle Mo won't even make the frame in this year's Classic. He'll run about 8-1/2 or 9f of the Classic strong. Then he'll fade like old ink in the final 1 or 1-1/2f. TJMO. · 945 days ago ·

Repole & Pletcher will have a good excuse for that uncle mo is a good horse and that is not goin to be enough to win the breeders cup classic comeing off of two prep races not going longer than one mile, UNCLE MO is no super horse and he would have to be superman to get that job done, but dont worry the trainer and the owner are thnking of a good excuse to sell the fans why MO couldnt get the job done. · 944 days ago ·

This is one gal to watch... looked good today, although not against much. She certainly enhances Royal Delta's reputation too.
After watching the Mother Goose, I have to wonder how good Royal Delta is.

  • KyOaksRunner · I think Joyful Victory should be able to handle the Mother Goose with ease, if she doesn't than she's not as good as I think she is. I'm also really looking forward to seeing Daisy Devine, though on TV and not in person, she's a wonderful filly. I picking Zazu to win the Hollywood Oaks over Plum Pretty for a couple of reasons. I actually think she'll like the smaller field and will be sitting closer to the "pack" than usual which won't leave her as much to do in the stretch, and also she 's very familiar with Hollywood Park. I don't think the Kentucky Oaks showcased her best. · 1032 days ago ·
