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

This year’s Haskell field of seven is rather contentious, with a very nice balance of early speed and late runners.Read More

  • tmallios1 · One has to be careful when comparing other horses to Curlin.This is one of the greats of the modern era.The only reason he was not the triple crown winner was a case of bad racing luck.a very troubled derby trip,then the tough beat to rags to riches in the belmont.no disrespect to oxbow or any other recent 3 yo colt. they are not even in the same neighberhood as that star was. · 264 days ago ·

Per Katie Fisher, Assistant to Tom Hudson of Magali Farms, Coil was very well received by California breeders and had a successful booking of 77 mares.
is anyone in foal to him yet?
Awesome horse. He won Grade 1's at 6 furlongs to 1 1/8. That does not often happen. A unique horse.
Coil gradually wore down pacesetter Ultimate Eagle to win Saturday’s Grade II San Pasqual Stakes by a head.Read More
  • Mike in SB · Big win by Coil and Ultimate Eagle looked pretty good too. One big thing I have noticed is that the Santa Anita track seems to be a lot more fair than it was last year, several of the winners have been coming from off the pace, that was rare last year. I hope it continues through the Breeders Cup. · 465 days ago ·

In a stirring stretch battle, Coil, ridden by Martin Garcia, and Ultimate Eagle, with Martin Pedroza up, were separated by head at the finish of Saturday’s Grade II, $150,000 San Pasqual Stakes with Coil prevailing in what was his last dance, according to Bob Baffert. Read More
Sad to see him retire but he had a great career!
Wait to go out on a bang!!! He ruined it for me, because I had Eagle WP. Nice win to close out his career.

  • yukichan · Gutsy Coil has been a favorite of mine, showing versatility over dirt/synthetic winning at distances from 6f to 1 1/8. Hopefully he'll leave a nice legacy of California-breds. Thank you for a final thriller! Enjoy stud-hood! · 466 days ago ·

What a thriller! Coil was a hard fought winner and starts his year off great.
Coil figures prominently in Saturday’s Grade II, $150,000 San Pasqual Stakes as the 5-year-old son of Point Given will try to stretch his speed to 1 1/16 miles. Read More

He hasn't been retired yet, not until after the San Pasqual Stakes.
One day after announcing Coil's retirement, trainer Bob Baffert confirmed that Coil would start in the G2 San Pasqual Stakes on January 5 before officially leaving the racing scene. This morning, Coil fired a 5F bullet in 58:40 (1/102) at Santa Anita in preparation his last career start.
Coil worked 5f in 1:00 (11/85) at Santa Anita on 12-17.
OMG..a disappointing 3rd in the Cigar Mile???...must be time for yet another 'Jock Change'... that outta fix it.

  • travel_vic · Many times I just have to laugh. When a horse, a HORSE, runs a bad one, to make THEMSELVES LOOK BETTER, the trainer fires the rider. DUMB. · 508 days ago ·

  • rafirox · I agree TV, jock didn't ruin it for him. But, I don't think he ran a bad one at all, but everyone says it was a bad one, so I am gonna watch it again. I think he ran a good race. · 508 days ago ·

Groupie Doll, winner of five straight against fillies and mares, will take on six male opponents, including four Grade 1 winners, in the Grade 1, $350,000 Cigar Mile Handicap on Saturday at Aqueduct Racetrack. Read More
  • Mike in SB · Groupie Doll looks tough, but I will try to beat her with Coil and Hymn Book if they stay at 8-1 and 6-1. It should be a pretty good race and I wouldn't mind seeing Groupie Doll win but I believe she will probably be less than 8-5. · 512 days ago ·
