What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Dark Cove...

What happened to him? I loved this horse.
The first time I ever laid my eyes on Suntracer was in a maiden special weight at Arlington Park in the summer of 2010. He ran fourth that day on the Polytrack in his second career start. Perhaps you’ve heard of the horses who finished 1-2 in that one. The winner, Willcox Inn, went on to be a multip...Read More
In last year’s inaugural running of the American St. Leger, it was the globetrotting Jakkalberry owned by Darren Dance’s Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock and trained by Marco Botti that took home the top prize in the $400,000 race. That team returns this year with the British-bred Dandino in hopes...Read More
Dark Cove will be scratched from the American St. Leger because of filling in a tendon. Co-owner Ken Ramsey hopes that Dark Cove can still be ready for the Breeders' Cup Marathon after being given some time off. Meanwhile, Stephanie's Kitten is being given a 30 day break due to being "bone sore." Nuclear scans did not reveal any serious injury.
Confirming his recent form as one of the best long distance turf runners in the nation, Dark Cove torched the Arlington Park turf in course record time to win the Stars and Stripes.Read More
Has won his third straight race at 1 1/2 Miles, please breed him!
We have a big weekend coming up at Arlington Park, but I would first like to thank those who have been awaiting a new HHH article for putting up with my 31-60 day layoff. Perhaps I will have a good record after the hiatus, much like Dark Cove's trainer Mike Maker (26%), ideally with a better ROI. Read More

  • virgil thatcher · The turf races at AP never disappoint me-should be a great day at the track. I too will be between the paddock and rail most of the day. Definitely buy a voucher first then use the terminals down by the paddock, that area's a ghost town when 2MTP comes around and its great for last-minute wagers... · 278 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · I found that the first few seasons Arlington was all over the place. Track maintenance tells me that is typical until a polytrack course matures and settles in. the course MOST like an early dirt cours STILL is Woodbine as it has for a long time now. AND they have the best truf course in North America bar none · 278 days ago ·

Kenneth & Sarah Ramsey’s formidable Dark Cove and Team Block’s defending champion Ioya Bigtime, plus the relative dearth of marathon runners in this country leaves the field for Saturday’s Grade III Stars and Stripes Stakes at a mere half-dozen but what the race lacks in quantity is made up by the q...Read More
Dark Cove grabbed the lead with a quarter mile to run and held off late charges by Atigun and Najjaar to win the 76th running of the Grade III, $111,800 Louisville Handicap by a half-length on Saturday afternoon at Churchill Downs.Read More
  • kailiking · Atigun's progress on the turf continues to amaze me. Hope to see a more free running Atigun in his next attempt, and continue his dam's bottomside tradition of Speed on the front end. With Devil's Bag and Dr. Fager representation...what more could you ask for. · 322 days ago ·

Dark Cove came out of his half-length victory in the Louisville Handicap (GIII) in good order, according to trainer Mike Maker. No plans have been made for his next start.
Back to back wins at 1 1/2 mile for him...Beast!

On Sunday, trainer Mike Maker won one race to score his meet-leading 16th victory and equal the spring season trainer’s record set by Todd Pletcher in 2005. D. Wayne Lukas, for whom Maker and Pletcher both served as assistants, set the overall track record when he won 22 races in the fall of 1989.Read More
