What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Chirac...

Two years ago it was Chirac in a shocker, upsetting the field in the Grade 3 Iselin Stakes as a 12-1 outsider.  That was 2009 and the 6-year-old gelding is looking for a little déjà vu in 2011 when he heads to the post at 12-1 on the morning line in this year’s renewal of the $250,000 stakes. &...Read More

  • mike · Musket Man , welcome back... I hope after Saturday your connections are looking at the classic rather than the mile.. Horses you destroy are coming back and winning major races all over the country... QR is vulnerable at 1 1/4 ...Blame proved this weekend without you going after QR in the Whitney he and his perfect trip would never have gotten QR...He couldnt even get close to Haynesfield...And Derek Ryans comments after the Whitney were obviously on the money...Asmussen and Dominguez were riding the Whitney in awe of QR..Your connections had the balls to take it to QR like you do every race your in and thats what makes you the great horse you truly are...Hopefully Saturday goes well and off to Churchill you go for a meeting With Zenyatta... WELCOME BACK MUSKET MAN.... show the world you really are the man..... · 1287 days ago ·

  • cugel the clever · Musket Man is an inspiration. Gives 110% every single race. He may not be #1 in talent but he's got more guts and determination and will to win than any other major stakes player currently running. I hope he runs in the Classic. He'd be an outsider but not an impossible winner if he gives his usual best and the prima donnas are having a bad day. · 1287 days ago ·
