  • Sullivan · Waiting for him to knock heads with Dan. Will we see him at Royal Ascot or Santa Anita? · 61 days ago ·
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @BrianZipse, me thinks Long John's stablemate Ihtimal might have something to say about that if they decide to let her take on the boys in the UAE Derby on world cup night. She was equally impressive in her UAE Oaks win at 9-1/2f as Long John was in his UAE 2000 Guineas win at a mile, and lest we forget the UAE Derby is ran over 9-1/2f. Given that Ihtimal is proven at that distance now and it still remains to be seen if Long John can get the extra 1-1/2f, I would personally favor Ihtimal over Long John in the Derby.

Relive another great week of racing as seen through the eyes of Zipse at the Track.Read More

  • Sullivan · I had Bingo in his victory and soon after said he was a one hit wonder. Last night I went on coalescing and checked this horse out. He has talent. Sheriffs will just have to hope that Blueskiesnrainbows and Mucho Macho Man both go out there. Originally, Yerry said that Blue skies would miss the big cap. Now he is entering him on a speed favoring track after a hard race he is sure to be fit from and he looks like the lone speed.... I think I'm playing Blueskies to win, assuming he is entered. · 43 days ago ·
  • marylandgq · I think it was appropriate that a great claim (Ribo Bobo) won a race named for another great claim (Caixa Eletronica). · 43 days ago ·
Hes got a decent dirt pedigree and would love to see him at the derby if hes to make it
  • Northport · Can southern hemisphere horses enter the derby? He is already a classic winner in his native country so I can't see why they would ship him another halfway-around-the-world-route to go after another classic. Unless maybe they want a classic trifecta? haha · 62 days ago ·
  • BrianZipse · No, he is considered a 4yo in the Northern Hemisphere. · 62 days ago ·
Guess that more than answers any questions about whether Long John would handle the switch from turf to tapeta. That was really impressive. Much the best in the UAE 2000 Guineas!!
Caulfield Guineas winner has left the barn of Peter Snowden and is now en route to Dubai to join Godolphin. Which trainer he will be with hasnt been released, but I would love to see him go to Appleby
