What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Gone West...

As a runner, Speightstown developed into a champion. Besieged with minor injuries early in his career, the always talented chestnut finally put it all together as a six-year-old. In a half dozen starts that year, Speightstown won five, including two 1:08 flat performances. One of them was a track re...Read More

  • Sullivan · I am interested in conformation for poly, it would be very enlightening... I know turf suits horses with larger hooves, longer pasterns and cannons. Wonder if poly is somewhere inbetween or small hooves? · 278 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · I am of the opinion, due to wide variances in energy parameters at Arlington, Kee, Woodbine, Turfway and Del Mar, that ther is NO uniform polytrack and it is the particular CUSHION at each track that makes it unique the way animals relate to it. That has been especially obvious since they have all aged and stabilized. EVEN with new material added regularly here in Toronto, only changes the track a little and that difference goes away rapidly after it is worked into the older poly..It dramatically changes color as it oxidizes as well. · 277 days ago ·

As one of the finest trainers going, Larry Jones knows good horseflesh when he sees it, so when he says he’s very happy with a young horse this time of year, it makes sense to listen. Clearly Havre de Grace, likely to be rewarded with the Horse of the Year in a matter of days, is the stable star, bu...Read More

Brilliant Speed’s pedigree is similar to that of one of the most popular and talented Derby winners in recent times, Barbaro. That valiant Champion proved that he was equally adept over dirt and turf. Let’s take a closer look at Brilliant Speed’s bloodlines to discover if he has what it takes to be ...Read More
  • ajump08 · I felt lucky win this guy won. I made two bets on the Blue Grass an exacta that keyed King Congie, and a small win bet on the other Albertrani trainee, Brilliant Speed. I was cheering for King Congie and got that losing feeling when I saw Twinspired approaching. I then saw some horse flying on the outside, and at first look I thought he lost. At this point I still had no idea it was the 5 since the saddle clothes were all the same color. Then I look at the shudder cam and see that it was the 5, Brilliant Speed, that closed. I was now even more depressed because I though he'd lost. Well, after a lengthy photo they put up the 5 and I along with the men surrounding me at the Charles Town simulcasting facility were elated. Anyway I can't say I see Brilliant Speed being much on dirt. Soldat made that move, but his dirt races were solid and his breeding was more tailored towards dirt. · 1099 days ago ·
