  • LAZMANNICK · One of my favorites. He was just a little bit away from being a consistent graded stakes type. · 838 days ago ·
  • zatt · He may not have won today, but it was another fine performance, in a career full of them, from Icabad Crane. · 837 days ago ·

  • teamo · One word describes Drosselmeyer: SLOW. Gonna have to do a heck of a lot better than a mile & 1/4 in 2:06 against a tiring rival, and whatever ridiculously slow time he ran the Belmont Stakes in, to win against REAL older horses. · 1066 days ago ·
  • medlocke · I think it's the old "horse for course" with Drosselmeyer. Belmont seems to be where he run's his best races. · 1066 days ago ·
After two lackluster efforts to begin 2011, last year’s Belmont Stakes winner, Drosselmeyer, returns to the scene of his greatest triumph Sunday, hoping to jump-start his career when he meets five rivals in the $60,000 One Count Stakes at Belmont Park.The One Count, run at 1 1/4 miles, is a prep to ...Read More

  • nicksteed · First of all, Avoid Tampa Bay Downs at all costs when it comes to Drosselmeyer. Any horse with ankle issues should not run, or train at all on a track regarded by many esteemed writers as "quirky". · 1068 days ago ·
His story could inspire a children’s book. His dam didn’t seem to care whether he was born or not. Not long after his birth his sire died in a horrifying accident, and he is named in tribute. His cute nickname comes from a popular book character.   As a youngster, he was difficult enough that h...Read More
Saturday's $1,000,000 Charles Town Classic has attracted a field of fourteen but only ten can run around the half mile oval and Rule is proven over the bullring configuration. Read More
  • ArturoLaguna · Mr. Zipse: If memory serves me right, Tackleberry beat rule in Gulfstream last month. Granted Rule won the Delta million in his 2 year campaign, but that was very soft company and a solitary victory does not make 1 proven in the bullring configuration. JUst like in his previous 2-3 starts, Rule will be a bridesmaid once more. So, I'm picking Tackleberry and Game on Dude exact box.

When Inherit the Gold swept across the finish line a 6 ¼-length winner of the Grade 3 Excelsior at Aqueduct on Saturday, the victory meant more than just the first graded stakes score for the 5-year-old New York-bred gelding. It kept alive the lifelong dreams of Inherit the Gold’s trainer, Jim Hoop...Read More
Though he sported the requisite winner’s circle attire - jacket, white shirt, tie - Jimmy Hooper couldn’t have looked more out of place. The shirt was unbuttoned at the collar. The red tie was crooked. His hair - a color not too dissimilar from the brilliant white of his charge - was covered by a wo...Read More

  • susanne.grace · What a wonderful article. Now I'm choked up! I do want to say thank you for Jim and myself for the recognition and also that there are many, many others behind the scenes that made this win possible. I wish I could name all the vets, farriers, grooms, exercise riders, friends, and family here! It's great to be appreciated. · 1108 days ago ·
  • BigAConfidential · Susanne, thank you so much for the kind words. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to properly introduce myself Saturday (I was the guy in the track suit and jeans who was late to the winner's circle because I forgot they'd moved it upstairs ;-) You and your husband have done an outstanding job with the horse. I congratulate you both. I would love to stop by the barn and talk with you both before ITG's next start. Can you shoot me an e-mail at jdepaolo85@gmail.com, and let me know the best way to get in touch with you? Thanks so much. · 1108 days ago ·
