What the Nation is saying about Justwhistledixie...

The Breeders' Cup Juvenile showcased an exciting field that could transform into an accomplished 3yo crop next year. Did we see a future champion in New Year's Day?Read More
It was a big day for my Kentucky Derby 2014 contenders in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita Park on Saturday, November 2.Read More
Justwhistledixies son, New Years Day, has won the BC Juvenile! Congrats to his connections.
As the Kentucky Derby of 2009 approached, the trainer of my top ranked three-year-old made it clear that the horse’s owner had no interest in running his star in the Run for the Roses. I was disappointed that Hal Wiggins was so matter of fact in relaying the adamant wishes of Dolphus Morrison, but i...Read More

  • SSilence86 · We likely won't see a performance like this anytime soon.. I look at my Fred Stone portrait of Rachel every day. She's what brought me back to horse racing when I had started drifting away from it. Thank you Rachel. · 347 days ago ·

Saturday’s Grade 2, $150,000 Distaff Handicap pits 4-year-old Justwhistledixie, who is trying to regain the winning touch she had early in her sophomore season, against fillies and mares who are seeking their first victory at the graded stakes level.   An easy winner of the Grade 2 Davona ...Read More

  • cigar · She needs to move-up quite a bit... last year's 3YOF, outside of Rachel, have not translated their form yet. · 1460 days ago ·

  • Rossington · Cigar, I agree. Outside of Rachel Alexandra in 2009, Stardom Bound and Justwhistledixie were the only two other fillies that looked to really show very much promise. A very disappointing run in the Distaff for Justwhistledixie. With Stardom Bound now retired, and Justwhistedixie not as of yet having show anywhere near the form she displayed early in her 3yr.old season, make's wonder if Rachel Alexandra will be able to move forward and maintain anywhere near her 2009 form having raced such a grueling campaign? · 1458 days ago ·

Tar Heel Mom set all of the fractions in the Grade 2, $150,000 Distaff Handicap at Aqueduct Racetrack on Saturday to earn her first graded stakes victory.   Away sharply under leading jockey Ramon Dominguez, the 9-5 favorite led through a half of 44.93 and rebuffed a challenge from Hour Glass a...Read More
Lori and George Hall’s In the Rough and Alex Rankin and partners’ Sea Road will get a final start in the South Florida sunshine at Gulfstream Park Saturday when they go to the post as the probable favorites in a field of nine 3-year-old fillies entered in the $50,000 Boynton Beach Stakes at 7 ½ fur...Read More
Rudy Rodriguez, who wrapped up his 18-year riding career with 221 winners from 3,900 starts, has gotten off to a flying start in his new career as a trainer.   On Thursday, Rodriguez saddled Chromospere to win the sixth race on the turf at Aqueduct, his second straight winner on the heels of Ae...Read More
Rachel Alexandra is great... but what a tremendous upset it would be and Justwhistledixie would be the one to do it.
  • medlocke · I've always wished that Justwhistledixie hadn't pulled out of the 2009 Kentucky Oaks. I don't think she would've beaten Rachel Alexandra that day, but by the same token, I don't think Rachel would've been a runaway 20 length winner either. TJMO. · 1467 days ago ·

Put Alan Garcia back on this filly, and put her back racing on conventional dirt tracks, and Justwhistledixie will be back in the winner's circle before you know it. IMO. Garcia has ridden this filly to most of her early successes. Justwhistledixie didn't look that great to me on synthetics in the El Encino Stakes, but she did look really good, and very competitive in November at Aqueduct in the race that she was very narrowly beaten by another excellent filly in Sarah Louise. All that Justwhistledixie needs is another confidence building win, and I really think she'll be right back at the top of the filly and mare division with Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra. TJMO.

Chiefswood Stable's AURORA LIGHTS (Pulpit) was used to overcoming tepid fractions having spent most of last year running over the Polytrack at Woodbine, and had to do so again to claim victory in Saturday's $100,000 Sabin S. (G3) at Gulfstream Park. Tracking between rivals in the second flight while...Read More
Exactly six weeks from today the "Race for the Ages" is supposed to take place at Oaklawn Park. Whether or not Rachel Alexandra and Zenyatta meet in the Apple Blossom remains to be seen, but we have reasons to be hopeful. If you are wondering why there has been little promotion for th...Read More
