Rise Up set a new stakes record in the Delta Jackpot, is he a rising force on the Kentucky Derby Trail or just another fast miler?Read More

  • Davidm9999 · I think you have a fair assessment on this colt. Not likely a classic type but certainly talented at this early stage. This was not a stellar field plus he had it all his own way but the track record at least indicates he ran swiftly. I wonder what he was purchased for after the MTR win? I agree with Shackleford that Rankhasprivileges showed some potential. He was very wide launching from the rear. Einstein has thrown a few winners already. He has cost me several nice tickets. About ready to give Einstein his due with his juveniles. · 148 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · I really like Rise Up, whether he turns into a Classic winner or not. However, I think your assessment is pretty spot on and is about the same conclusion I came to myself. But hey, there's nothing wrong with being a good sprinter. · 147 days ago ·

  • 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? · 280 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. · 280 days ago ·
most of his progeny aren't able to go by 1 1/16. He is a top sire in the 7-8.5 furlong division
