Cardiff Giant

Kentucky (USA) by Kim Nardelli  -  Rodney Nardelli  -  [Add Data]

What the Nation is saying about Cardiff Giant...

Pure Clan, who is arguably the top turf female in training, is coming right along in her preparations for her season debut. She worked a bullet five furlongs in 59.60 seconds on dirt at her Oaklawn base last week and remains on schedule for an intended start in the Grade 2, $200,000 Churchill Downs ...Read More
Sidney's Candy stamped himself as a major Kentucky Derby factor while taking the Santa Anita Derby in front-running fashion.Read More
  • UpInClass · Photos from the 2010 Santa Anita Derby... enjoy! http://www.network54.com/Forum/366748/thread/1270382030/last-1270399163/2010+Santa+Anita+Derby · 1556 days ago ·
The results of the Wood Memorial, Santa Anita Derby and Illinois Derby shuffled the order of the Kentucky Derby graded earnings a bit. Read More
  • Rossington · As well as he's raced over every conventional dirt track that he's ever ran, I still find it hard to believe that Rick Dutrow isn't going to take a shot at the 2010 Kentucky Derby with D' Funnybone. I really think it's a distance question with Dutrow. But that wouldn't deter me from taking a shot with this colt, because none of the incoming contenders will be proven yet at 1-1/4. TJMO. · 1557 days ago ·
  • Rossington · Boy, that Florida Stallion Series sure must not have paid very well for Jackson Bend to be so far down the list in Graded earnings. I also thought D' Funnybone with win's in the Saratoga Special, the Futurity Stakes, the Hutcheson Stakes, and the Swale Stakes, plus a place effort in the Frank Gomez Stakes would have acquired more money in Graded earnings than his total suggest. · 1557 days ago ·
The Santa Anita Derby on Saturday has such a strong lineup that a horse conceivably could run third in a three-way photo finish with Lookin At Lucky and Sidney's Candy and not have enough money to go to the Kentucky Derby in four weeks. "If my horse were to run a good third, with trouble and getting...Read More
Lookin at Lucky drew post 7 of 10, and was made the 4-5 favorite for Saturday's $750,000 Santa Anita Derby over stakes winners Sidney's Candy, Caracortado and Alphie's Bet. Read More
  • Medlocke · I wouldn't be surprise to see a big run from Caracortado in this race. But, as I've said before, unless he just comes out and circles Santa Anita backwards, not Caracortado, not Sidney's Candy, or any other 3yr.old for that matter, is going to beat Lookin At Lucky on the Santa Anita poly-track. Looking back to November, and seeing his form now, I think it was a fluke that Vale of York was able to get up to beat him in the 09' B.C. Juvenile. Dirt for Lookin At Lucky, however, is another story. Although he answered the dirt question by winning the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn, that wasn't what you would really call an overpowering field, IMO, and he was just barely able to get up for that win. At Churchill Downs, LAL is going to be facing several proven dirt running 3yr.olds, that unless he improves on dirt off of the Rebel, my be able to get him. That's why, IMO, Bob Baffert would have been much better served to have left LAL at Oaklawn, and a run in the Arkansas Derby, to get another conventional dirt start under his belt. I really think that would serve him better than another poly-track start at Santa Anita going into Churchill Downs next. TJMO. · 1561 days ago ·
Bob Baffert said late Sunday morning he is "90 percent sure" that multiple Grade 1 victor LOOKIN AT LUCKY (Smart Strike) will run in Saturday's $750,000 Santa Anita Derby (G1) rather the $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1) at Oaklawn Park on April 10. The champion colt worked six furlongs on Santa Anita'...Read More
  • Rossington · I'm certainly not qualified to second guess Bob Baffert. But, IMO, another race at Oaklawn, on conventional dirt, in the Arkansas Derby would be much more beneficial to Lookin At Lucky heading to Churchill Downs than another run on the synthetic track at Santa Anita. I guess maybe Baffert is thinking Lookin At Lucky will be extremely tough to beat at Santa Anita, and a win in the S.A. Derby would give Lucky a bunch of confidence going to Kentucky. Otherwise, why not let your 3yr.old star get some more dirt track experience? TJMO. · 1564 days ago ·
  • cigar · I would agree, but once you've proven the horse handles dirt, why bother with the ship when you can walk over for a decent amount of coin? I would keep him home as well, and have the next ship be to Churchill. · 1564 days ago ·
The prospective Santa Anita Derby (G1) field grew by one Sunday with the announcement that dual allowance winner SKIPSHOT (Skip Away) would invade from the Bay Area to run in the $750,000 race going 1 1/8 miles on April 3. "The horse is here and will breeze tomorrow morning," trainer Jerry Hollendor...Read More
Trainer Bob Baffert said Lookin At Lucky's response to training will determine whether the colt will run in the Santa Anita Derby or wait a week for Arkansas Derby.A determined winner of the Rebel Stakes (gr. II) at Oaklawn March 13, the 2009 juvenile champion is among the favorites for the May 1 Ke...Read More
In the past seven graded Triple Crown preps contested at Oaklawn, five have contained at least one starter based on the California synthetic tracks. Of those five Oaklawn invasions, the West Coasters own four wins and a second-place finish. Keep that in mind as you analyze Saturday's Rebel and recal...Read More
Uh Oh Bango, the runner-up to Rule in the Grade 3, $750,000 Delta Jackpot in his last start Dec. 4, breezed at Oaklawn on Friday in preparation for next Saturday's Grade 2, $300,000 Rebel. Others considered probable for the 1 1/16-mile Rebel include Grade 1 winners Noble's Promise and Dublin. Cardif...Read More

  • arazi · Uh Oh Bango has a big shot on Saturday. He gave Rule everything he could handle at Delta. Bango will sit right off the speed and inherit the lead when it wilts. If he's ready, he may not stop. · 1581 days ago ·
Oaklawn has drawn a seven-horse field for its Grade 2, $300,000 Rebel Stakes on Saturday. It will be the 50th running of the race, and it has a scheduled post of 5:47 p.m Central. The Rebel will go as the 10th on an 11-race card Saturday. Lookin at Lucky will add blinkers for the Rebel....Read More
Noble's Promise has raced exclusively on synthetic and turf surfaces to this point in his career, but there are reasons to believe that the Grade 1 winner might be an even better horse on dirt. More will be learned Saturday, when Noble's Promise runs in the Grade 2, $300,000 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn ...Read More
Lookin At Lucky's future is so bright, he's got to wear shades. The champion 2-year-old of 2009, Lookin At Lucky will be adding blinkers Saturday when he makes his first start of the year in the Grade 2, $300,000 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park. Lookin At Lucky, who is based in Southern California, was...Read More
Zabeel Racing International's Conveyance remained undefeated in four starts, as he sprinted to an early lead then held off late bids from Dublin and Cardiff Giant to win the $250,000 Southwest Stakes (gr.

Dublin, winner of the Three Chimneys Hopeful (gr. I) as a juvenile, drew post 10 for his 3-year-old debut and will take on a solid group of rivals that includes three California shippers in the $250,000 Southwest Stakes (gr. III) Feb. 15 at Oaklawn Park...Read More
  • bardiggler · Should be a could race with some Derby contenders, Dublin, Conveyance, and Dryfly. Keep an eye on #4 Mission Imapazible. Oaklawn like Tampa Bay Downs offers 50 cent Trifectas so I'm going to box up [2,4,6,10] for $12. · 1606 days ago ·
Disappointment and hope run in tandem on the trail. Just minutes after word broke that Azeri's baby TAKE CONTROL was injured and off the Triple Crown trail, along came Barbaro's little brother LENTENOR to pull off a "wow" performance unmatched in the maiden ranks this season. Call me crazy, but LENT...Read More
Conveyance, sent off as the 3-10 choice in a field of five, turned back a bid from Cardiff Giant in upper stretch and went on to post a 1 3/4-length victory in the $150,000 San Rafael Stakes (gr. III) Jan. 16 at Santa Anita Park. Purchased privately by Zabeel Racing International earlier in the...Read More
