What the Nation is saying about Discreet Cat...

With one of the more interesting looking Cigar Mile fields just a few days away, I decided to have a little fun with the prestigious, late-season race at Aqueduct. In 24 editions, there have been 23 winners (Congaree won it twice), of the Grade 1 race. Today, I took on the unenviable task of ranking...Read More

  • tmallios1 · I will give you a more recent example. Countess Dianna,who my friend vetted. She was refused to the owners to buy , because of so called obvious issues. He approved her.Not a bad call,if i say so myself. I have been told by many a trainer and vet. The next completely clean race horse you see.That horse will be the first. All of these horses that ran or are running have some sort of story behind them.Just because the public is not privy,does not mean it does not exist. Like they say in Sports,You play when you are hurti, but you sit when you are injured. · 144 days ago ·

  • CauseForConcern · Laurie, I have not been one to anticipate yearling sales in the past, but your article drew some interest. I was disappointed in the early retirement of Majesticperfection. He had beaten the eventual BC Sprint Champ, Big Drama, with ease, prior to his retirement due to injury. He was bought by Airdrie Stables, and, I think, this might be his first crop. Did you, by chance, spot any offspring of his at this sale? · 207 days ago ·

  • tmallios1 · ran nice,but doubt this horse will even be around when we are talking kentucky derby next may. it is july and he already has 3 races under his belt.historically horses that come out this early are no where to be seen when the serious races at longer distances come to play. you do not have to look to much to see evidence. look at shanghai bobbi last year.he came out at queduct as a 2yo. where was he when we were talking about the derby. the derby is not even a conversation piece at this stage. due to the breeders cup,this is not the racing game we grew up on. the game now is split into 2 parts. the 2 year old season and the 3 year old season. speed bred horses are rightfully being brought out sooner than later.take advantage of the purses and the fame that goes with winning. most owners and trainers know this. nothing wrong with this train of thought. that is why many top barns such as the pletcher,assmussen and bafferts run 2 year olds very early. the master is wesley ward. he brings them out at keeneland,dominates the meet and makes money for his owners. if in the process he sees something special. he will back up a little and run in the breeders cup.so there is about a 95% chance that the derby winner. we do n ot even have a clue as to what his or her name is yet. · 290 days ago ·

  • Winplacsho · I don't think there's any doubt Union Rags should be at the top of the heap right now, but a freak? I'm just not sure he really beat anything. He beat Discreet Dancer, who never routed before & was loose on the lead in both his starts sprinting. Other than that I think the field had mainly allowance horses at best. · 781 days ago ·

  • DeadHeat · Winplacesho, there has not been a race, except for possibly the Holy Bull, that anyone can say that the winner beat a field of top flight horses. Even that race has things that people can nit pick, like Hansen needed the race/was too fresh, etc, or that some of the others didn't enjoy the sloppy going. Also, remember that UR was coming off a 4 month layoff and had every right to not turn in that type of eye catching performance. He sat off of slow splits and came home quick enough to make a decent time out of it. · 780 days ago ·

  • DeadHeat · Too early to tell that Brian. Out of Bounds looks like one that can handle more distance, and DD looked to have a lot more in the tank. Elusive Quality has sired some top horses at distances, just look at Raven's Pass and Smarty. QR also was grade one placed at 10f. He could go either way with Forestry, but I do believe that the UAE Derby is longer than a mile. 10f may have been to much for DC, but during his prime that speed could be carried a good ways. · 832 days ago ·

  • terri.zeitz · Check out the article in the Saratogan on Dec 7th, "Rising Stars: Discreet Dancer Dazzles in Debut", The article talks about his extremely talented and classy dam and her female family. His dam, West Side Dancer, is out of Gone West. The Gone West line has produced Excluswive Quality, Smarty Jones, Awesome Feather, and Quality Road. Tood Pletcher said Discreet D was not at all tired after a mile and can go the classic distances. Look at his dam's line to see that quality. Both he and Awesome Feather are on facebook. Pletcher has a Little Red monster in his barn. And you can only bet on him in futures, as he has 4 to 5 odds at the track in his first 2 races. · 827 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · Horse racing is the most luck dependant gambling I have ever participated in, either as an owner or bettor. As far as betting it runs in streaks as you know. That was a nice pick on the #2 Out of Bounds as I wouldn't have reversed it as I thought the #4 was by far the best.After seeing your remarks I looked a lot closer and loved the bloodlines.I also handicap a lot of races that are interesting with but no intention of betting, it's fun.
