Casper's Touch

Kentucky (USA) by Daniel J. Burke  -  [Add Data]

What the Nation is saying about Casper's Touch...

Mike Mitchell, who became the all-time leading trainer at Del Mar this summer, has a long way to go for the same record at Hollywood Park. But he is inching closer, despite missing several top runners. A win Thursday by Roman Chic was Mitchell’s 857th at Hollywood; he ranks third behind Bobby Franke...Read More
Derby Kitten rallied down the middle of the track to win Saturday's Coolmore Lexington Stakes at Keeneland. Casper's Touch was sent from the outside post and carved out solid splits of :23.96, :47.17, and 1:12.11. Prime Cut and Silver Medallion stalked the pace. Prime Cut made his move turning for h...Read More

  • mdracing69 · Nice moves by The Factor and Sway Away. Premier Pegasus flattered the San Vicente form and I am looking forward to the Rebel. Santiva is now pointing to the Blue Grass. · 1135 days ago ·
Looking for a Derby horse flying under the radar? Try these twenty colts on for size… Albergatti (Unbridled’s Song - My Miss Storm Cat by Sea of Secrets) After a hard fought maiden loss, the grey Stonestreet runner came back with a snappy win at seven furlongs. Look for him in a stakes race next out...Read More

Soldat took full advantage of his rail draw and never relinquished the lead in Saturday’s Fountain of Youth (G2) Stakes at Gulfstream Park. Read More

  • gardenesque1 · You are right about THAS, Arbouwkamp. He was a short horse for sure. The next race will tell the story. He needs to pull a R Heat Lighning - flat first time back followed by a romp. · 1149 days ago ·
  • KyOaksRunner · Soldat ran great, I loved the way he continued to kick away at the head of the stretch after leading all the way around. To Honor And Serve is a good colt but I don't like the idea of him only having one more race before the Derby. · 1149 days ago ·
If Casper’s Touch is to put a major scare into his opponents in tomorrow’s Fountain of Youth, he will need to run the race of his young life to do it. Taking a quick glance at his competition proves that. To Honor and Serve has won three in a row, including two straight graded stakes to close the ye...Read More

  • TiznowReynolds · I'm a firm believer in Soldat and think he's got it today...With that said I've also became a fan of Casper's Touch and would like to see him run really well. He had every excuse to throw in the towel last out and he didn't. · 1150 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · I believe the #5 should be in the exotics somewhere,could surprise and hit the board. · 1150 days ago ·
I've been high on this guy! I love his pedigree especially for the Classics. He's had a good work since last out and I see him running very well in the 9f FOY. THAS is my #1 right now and has been since last Oct. I also like Bowman's Causeway. So, these 3 are my picks for Saturday's FOY.
  • blooy · he looks good, we will have to see, i'm all about underdogs than bandwagons. but he does look good. on a another note he is a underdog in this next race. · 1151 days ago ·
To Honor And Serve, winner of the Nashua (G2) and Remsen (G2) at Aqueduct last fall, headlines a field of eight three-year-olds in Satuday's Fountain of Youth (G2) Stakes at Gulfstream Park. Read More

We all know about the early Kentucky Derby favorites and those that are on the top of the graded earnings list. But here are three under-the-radar colts to watch for as the Derby trail inches closer.Casper's Touch (Touch Gold-Lizzy Cool, by Saint Ballado)--He's one I'm really watching, mainly due to...Read More

The performance of the week goes to Dialed In following a scintillating last-to-first tally in the Grade 3 Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park. The Holy Bull was my video race of the week and I did not consider Dialed In a serious threat regardless of his impressive bow. He recently scratched out of...Read More
Shackleford tracked pacesetter El Grayling and criused to a 2-1/4 length victory for entry level allowance runners in the third race at Gulfstream Park on Feb 5th. The winner, a 3-year-old chestnut colt out of Forestry, sat a half length behind splits of :24.33 and :48.39. He engaged El Grayling aft...Read More

  • bravo2407 · After being rank for 1/3 of the race and being slammed coming around the final turn, it is amazing that Casper has enough to churn out a place. One tough hombre · 1170 days ago ·
Saturday's third race at Gulfstream features a field of six three-year-olds who could become Derby contenders with a strong performance in the 1 1/8-mile test. Read More
  • arazi · This is a deep allowance and any of these could step up in here. Shadow Warrior could be tough in here, but I'm curious to see what El Grayling does around two turns. He ran very well against Brethren at Churchill and ran a deceptively good fourth while wide last time. · 1171 days ago ·
  • zatt · Solid field, but for me it all boils down to how good Casper is ... one of the more interesting untested sophomores in the nation. · 1171 days ago ·

Casper’s Touch has a pedigree rife with stamina influences. He’s a half-brother to multiple stakes winning sprinter Cool Bullet . His dam is a stakes winner and his third dam a multiple grade 1 stakes winner.
The following is the Derby preview article that will appear in the Feb. 12 issue of the The Blood-Horse. But before we get to that, let’s try something different this year.
