What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Da' Tara...

With the weather outside reaching ridiculous levels of snow and cold, I found myself locked in the house today. It's depressing. Needing a pick me up, I turned to an old friend for memories always sure to put a smile on my face. Of course I am talking about Rachel Alexandra and her magical season of...Read More

  • AnnaK · Would love a Triple Crown, mostly because it would pull people in to the races, (already started I like to think), plus IHA is such a strong red engine and Mario is excellent, that it just might be.

It’s been a few years since Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito experienced that most magical moment of seeing his horse cross the Kentucky Derby wire before all the rest. 17 years to be exact.

  • tiznow · I think 7/1 for the favorite to go off at is very realistic. Last year we had Lucky who was very consistent and Super Saver go off similar. With the doubts people are casting on Mo, I can definitely see it around there again for the favorite. · 1086 days ago ·
