  • Sullivan · He has everything where it should be and to top it off, a nice chestnut coat. Give him a little extra grain and he'll look even more fabulous. If only he was sound... · 282 days ago ·

Bourbon Lane Stable and Wayne Lynn’s 4-year-old Bourbon Courage arrived in South Florida at Palm Beach International Airport Wednesday from New Orleans on a Tex Sutton Forwarding charter flight ahead of his 2013 season debut in the $500,000 Donn Handicap (G1) Saturday, Feb. 9 at Gulfstream Park.Read More
I really hope he runs a GREAT race in the Donn! :)
Originally expected to run in Saturday’s $150,000 Fort Lauderdale on turf, Soldat will instead run in Sunday’s main-track attraction at Gulfstream.Read More
  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · El Padrino should win this. · 462 days ago ·
  • El Kabong · Great to get this info on the move. Soldat loves the main track here and will be very competitive here. I haven't looked at the race, and I do not think he will have much problem at the distance or with the surface change here. I have a great deal of respect for this horse, he's fit and ready to do damage. I will be back when I look at the competition. · 461 days ago ·
El Padrino will skip the Hal's Hope and train up to the Donn Handicap.
El Padrino, who returned from an eight-month layoff to finish second in an open allowance race at Gulfstream on Dec. 19, is being pointed to the $100,000 Hal’s Hope (G3) on Jan. 13. The one-turn mile will serve as a prep for the $500,000 Donn Handicap (G1) at Gulfstream on Feb. 9. Read More

El Padrino, second in his Dec 19 allowance return, breezed 4f in :49.88 (2/7) at Palm Meadows on Jan 1.
Any difference of opinion concerning Itsmyluckyday’s future was settled rather emphatically Saturday in the $100,000 Gulfstream Park Derby. Read More
Awesome maria came off a 8 month layoff this year in march makeing her first start back in graded stakes company facing royal delta and groupie doll. She dmolished the field and she wasnt even 100% just needed a race to return to. and after watching a horse with high hopes throw in a clunker like his florida derby where he just couldnt make up ground in the stretch makes me think he wont make a huge impact this year anywhere

He will devour the field on Wednesday!!
Just For Fun Stable’s 4-year-old Florida homebred colt Decisive Moment has banked more than $707,000 with four victories in 21 career starts for trainer Juan Arias, but hasn’t visited the winner’s circle since capturing the $125,000 Delta Mile at Delta Downs on Nov. 19, 2011.Read More

  • rafirox · That is true. But, since it is a tune-up for El Padrino, we can not tell for sure. I have never been a fan of El Padrino, but he does have talent. I'll be rooting hard for Decisive Moment. He is kind of a sentimental favorite, he is just a beautiful animal. I won't be betting this race, BTW. Unpredictable, and I don't bet my faves very often, I don't like too. · 486 days ago ·
  • TampaBayDowns Fan · Ah HA! See? I'm not the only one! Who likes DM, I mean. Well I doubt rafirox is about as obsessed with him as I am, but, you know. · 484 days ago ·
If you are a regular reader of this column, you know that one of my favorite horses all winter for the 2012 Kentucky Derby was El Padrino. After a fast optional claiming win over Take Charge Indy at Gulfstream Park on January 29, and then a game decision over Mark Valeski in the Grade 2 Risen Star S...Read More

  • cocoa2 · Hey! The way it was phrased... And male horses will be good friends but while I have seen mares cover mares never stallions stallions or stallions geldings. So perhaps horses lack the ability to be gay. · 489 days ago ·
  • Mary Z. · Sorry for the delay, vlad. El Padrino is not in the Harlan's Holiday entries. · 489 days ago ·
Had Todd Pletcher joined the circus instead of the Thoroughbred racing world, Gulfstream Park’s defending nine-time training champion surely would have made his mark as a juggler extraordinaire.Read More
