On Saturday afternoon at Saratoga Race Course, the Hall of Famer will try to add to that total when he sends Data Link in the Grade 2, $250,000 Bernard Baruch Handicap. Data Link shoots for his third ...Read More

Saturday’s 8th race at Hawthorne is the 47th edition of the Grade 3 Hawthorne Derby. This race features Willcox Inn coming off of a good run at the Mid-America triple earlier this summer.

  • jasen.mangrum · I like Crimson China, but I worried about the slow pace (I love that picture). Hopefully the blinkers will put him into the race a little earlier. · 915 days ago ·

The 47th running of the Grade 3 $200,000 TVG Hawthorne Derby anchors the strong Saturday card. There were 33 nominations for the race. The connections of 10 chose to run. The race, for three-year-olds, is at a mile and an eighth over Hawthorne’s turf course. This will be the first time over the loca...Read More
Denied a sweep of Arlington Park's Mid-America Triple by a strong European contingent in the August 13 Secretariat S. (G1), WILLCOX INN (Harlan's Holiday) still rates as one of the leading three-year-olds on grass in the U.S. The Mike Stidham trainee can reaffirm that view Saturday in the $250,000 K...Read More

Team Valor International’s Crimson China sat patiently off fast fractions before rallying in the lane to post a length victory in the $70,000 Lamplighter Stakes as G.J.

Plenty has happened since we last checked in on April 11. The Factor flopped in the Arkansas Derby and he is off the Derby trail, along with Jaycito (foot issue). Crimson China, Elite Alex, and Sway Away failed to earn enough graded dough to make the Derby gate. J P’s Gusto is off to New York for hi...Read More

Brilliant Speed, unhurried in the early going under Joel Rosario, stormed down the middle of the track to nip Twinspired at the wire in Saturday's Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland. Read More
  • bband · Good work if you had Brilliant Speed. This horse was tough to have in a wide open race. I agree that Twinspired ran very well. But it's hard to bank on any of these doing well at Churchill. Then again, Paddy O'Prado looked like a turf horse last year, before running a good third in the Derby. · 1095 days ago ·

  • miracleshappen · i think king congie will be able to pull of a win and upset santiva. today while I was in school the name king congie just popped into my head from out of nowhere. It seemed familiar but I couldn't figure out where i heard the name from. turns out he is in the blue grass. was it a sign? i don't know but im not sold on this santiva colt yet. · 1096 days ago ·
