What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Hightail...

Bred a couple of mares this year, wonder why Calument doesn't have him on their website roster?

  • cocoa2 · Not that bad, actually. Standing at Calumet? I wish he would grow up before being bred to, his injury and unsoundness shouldn't be genetic · 378 days ago ·

  • thatbigbay · He's an undeniably talented colt, and I anticipate his spring season. That said, his sire is sprinter Into Mischief, and his grandsire if Harlan’s Holiday, who finished second in multiple 10 furlong stakes, but seemed to run his best at 9 furlongs. Goldencents’ dam is Golden Works, who found her success sprinting in the claiming ranks. His broodmare sire is Banker’s Gold, who won on occasion 9 furlongs, but did his best running at shorter distances. I really like him at his current distance, but I'll keep my money to myself when things get long. Of course, you've always got a Smarty Jones or War Emblem who screws things up for us pedigree geeks! · 458 days ago ·

Tweet from Brady Lukas: "Just learned Breeders Cup Juvenile Sprint Winner Hightail broke a sesamoid, and will no longer race. Very upsetting."
Ran a nice race for a short layoff. Looks like he'd be a better sprinter. You know that he's a Lukas and the KY Derby is already a definite.
With a name like Goldencents, you might expect the protagonist in this story to be surrounded by Bentleys, martinis shaken not stirred, supervillains, and Bond girls, but not so. This hero makes 007 look as slow as a senior citizen trying to use an iPad for the first time. Generally speaking, a 5 ½ ...Read More

  • icyhotboo · zatt, on that particular track the #9 post, with his early speed gave him a big advantage. I used to go to a harness track with that configeration, Vernon Downs. Horses with early speed usually got the position they wanted. I didn't expect BI to be sitting behind a wall of horses either though. I didn't think he'd get there on that track. Nice runs by both. · 516 days ago ·

Goldencents went wire-to-wire in the $1 million Delta Jackpot (gr. III) at Delta Downs Nov. 17, setting quick early fractions and responding with something more to hold off a late run from 9-5 favorite Bern Identity. Read More

  • theprodigy34 · Again, I really don't get why you keep saying "he has not done well on any surface" when he is only a two year old, and he has won a graded stake on poly, but placed well on dirt. Whatever. · 527 days ago ·
