What the Nation is saying about Dance to Bristol...

Has American thoroughbred racing become too enamored with one weekend of racing while forgoing the importance of a solid, yearlong campaign?Read More

  • ekindy · @Ruffianlover I think the differences are greatly exaggerated. Remember Princess took some time off after the Oaks as well. Princess ran exactly one more race for the year than Beholder, and ran exactly one more race than Beholder between the Oaks and the Distaff. Yes it's a difference but it's not so much of a difference that you take the award away from Beholder. And also remember Princess stayed home when other contenders (in fact ALL other Oaks runners if I am not mistaken) ran in March prep races. Are we going to discount her Oaks victory because of that? · 84 days ago ·

  • rafirox · Love David Jacobson and Drawing Away Stable. They are classy folks, all about business and are quite respected around the game. Jacobson's placement in horses' (class) and his care are top notch. If he feels he should run a certain horse often, so be it. He knows more than you, I and everyone else on this thread combined, Laurie. · 101 days ago ·

  • tmallios1 · Laurie,thank you for bringing out the Pink Elephant into the fore front. It is a joke how some of these guys claim horses at bargain basement prices and raise them to heights of winning stakes races. Then they are hailed as heroes. Amino said it best,The feed program is so much better on the other side of the fence.Smokey was one of the unlucky ones. So many more are left to the outside. Not only herein NY,but at other tracks. An absolute joke when trainers are almost winning at 30% or over. Oh yeah,i definately believe they are sharper than others and know how to place their horses. Same nonsense with Blinkers on first time. That is the corporate line. The real line is that they finally did what was needed to be done. · 101 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · I have been going to Saratoga for the Travers weekend since 1985 and the weather this year was the best ever. One big problem was too many short fields and odds on favorites, the Alabama and Personal Ensign each had a great filly but were not very exciting races. Wayne Lukas's success shows that the old time trainers don't forget how to train, it is just that often they stop getting the good horses, there are a lot of old time trainers that would be successful if all the good horses weren't going to just a few popular trainers. · 227 days ago ·
