  • likin sparks · I'm going with Hot Summer on this one, gonna be here at CT to watch it. · 943 days ago ·
  • mdracing69 · Interesting race. The Charles Town bullring can be tricky to handle. Coax Liberty should offer value at 6-1. She gets Dunkelberger and has enough positional speed to work out a decent inner tactical trip. · 943 days ago ·
Taking advantage of sizzling early fractions, Hot Summer went from last to first with a determined charge along the rail in the Grade 3, $100,000 Victory Ride presented by Jose Cuervo at Saratoga Race Course on Saturday afternoon.

  • BigAConfidential · Brian, I haven't had a chance to stop by and commend you on the work you've done this season. Great stuff. I too am looking forward to the Susan. Despite her flop at Tampa, I cannot seem to shake the brilliance of Royal Delta's maiden score at Belmont. Like her chances on Friday. · 1064 days ago ·
  • KyOaksRunner · Thank you very much, I've been enjoying it a lot! Great call on Royal Delta btw, I had her and Wyomia as my top two but didn't think she would win it! · 1056 days ago ·
I had a plan this past week when I was preparing to take off for my trip to Ireland. I had my laptop, flashdrive and saved files all relative to the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (gr.2) set to go. My hotel in Dublin had free high speed WiFi and I was eager to continue my coverage of the race and contender...Read More

  • BigAConfidential · Welcome back, Brian! I must hear about your trip to the Emerald Isle at some point. You and I have both liked Royal Delta for some time. She got a dream setup Friday, yes. But she still capitalized very nicely. Interested to watch the rest of her campaign play out. · 1057 days ago ·
  • KyOaksRunner · Thanks Joe, it was amazing! Yes, I've been loving Royal Delta but had her pegged for second here, she really came through in a big way. I remember you called her in my last post, nice job!! :) · 1056 days ago ·
Royal Delta sat the right stalking trip and burst through along the inside to win Friday's Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes from Pimlico Race Course. Read More
The Oaks/Derby Double was not one of the tickets I could cash two weeks ago, as St. John's River came a stride too late for a huge double with Animal Kingdom to payoff. Undeterred, I'll be right back at it with the Black-Eyed Susan/Preakness Double. It does not have quite the combination possibiliti...Read More
A short but contentious field will vie for the honor of winning the Black Eyed Susan. None of the fillies have tried the 1 1/8 mile distance, but most should handle it. Rain is in the forecast and the track may be muddy.Read More
Wyomia is the 9-5 morning line favorite versus six others in Friday's Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico Race Course. Read More
  • BrianZipse · I expect the bettors to jump on Royal Delta ... I'll be very happy if I can get 3-1 or better on Hot Summer. · 1065 days ago ·
  • mikemoss13 · I read a different article yesterday saying that Leparoux has the mount for Wyomia.....I hope it's Lenclud however. · 1065 days ago ·
The Wood Memorial may have been the most shocking upset of the season but Lilacs and Lace did her best to steal the spotlight this weekend with a 48-1 upset in the Ashland Stakes (gr.1) at Keeneland on Saturday.
