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

Rest in peace, our dear friends ... Read More
Great horse. Sad he died. ):
“Rest in Peace, Kensei.” I saw those words last week on Facebook, and my heart just sank. Kensei had been a horse that I watched and admired for the better part of four seasons, and in the time that it took me to read four simple words, I knew he was gone. Kensei was a five-year-old son of Mr. Greel...Read More

  • JWC8282 · One of my favorites of all-time. Saw this horse break his maiden and win the Jim Dandy. It is a shame because I think he was coming back into form. R.I.P. · 1024 days ago ·

this is very sad news, RIP Kensei
RIP.... This is so sad.... He had been running so well lately.
So sorry to hear. He ran so well at Monmouth earlier in the summer.

Owned by Stonestreet Stables and trained by Steve Asmussen, the 5-year-old son of Mr. Greeley suffered a broken right front cannon bone, and was...Read More

Espoir City, Japan’s hope for the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (gr. I) to be run at Churchill Downs Nov. 6, drilled six furlongs over the Louisville track to lead a host of workouts on the morning of Oct. 23 from hopefuls for the two-day racing festival. This was the first of two planned works b...Read More
  • medlocke · Espoir City is a very talented colt to say the least. He lends a very good international flavor to this year's Breeders Cup Classic. 6 wins and 2 place efforts in 9 lifetime starts. 4 of his 6 win's are G1 victories. He likes to do his running on the front end, and his plenty of front running speed. I would expect to see Espoir City somewhere very near the front of the race along with Haynesfield and Quality Road. If there's a knock on this colt that could be called into question, it would be his stamina? How well, if at all, will Espoir City handle 10 furlongs? Of his 9 races on conventional dirt in Japan, Espoir City has raced 6 times at a mile, and 3 times at 9 furlongs. He's yet to ever attempt 1-1/4 in his career. The talent is certainly there for all to see with this colt. But the Breeders Cup Classic field, IMO, will be a very difficult first time testing ground to try and answer the 10 furlong question with? TJMO. · 1352 days ago ·

In a brilliant display of speed and talent, Quality Road staked his claim as the top horse in the country as he rocketed to a 1 ½-length victory over Musket Man Monday afternoon in the 117th running of the Grade 1, $500,000 Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont Park. Read More

  • cugel the clever · WRITING YOUR OPINION IN CAPITAL LETTERS DOES NOT MAKE IT A FACT. Naming the "Best Horse" always has been, and always will be, an OPINION, not a FACT. In my opinion, beating the best males in the world three times (instead of once), setting multiple track and stakes records (instead of none) and beating horses at 8 different tracks is a more worthy record than 16 in a row against Grade III competition. · 1488 days ago ·
