What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Major Gain...

Calumet Farm’s Optimizer, the decisive winner of last month’s $125,0000 Col. E.R. Bradley Handicap (GIII) for Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas, ships back from Oaklawn Park as the 120-pound high weight and 3-1 morning line favorite for Saturday’s 26th running of the $150,000 Fair Grounds Handica...Read More
Louie Roussel III’s Major Gain, unhurried early, commenced a rally along the inside when set down for the drive, took command after the furlong marker and drew clear for a 2 1/2-length score in Friday’s Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots feature. The $47,000 allowance affair was contested at about one...Read More
Premier Pegasus, who earned $150,000 for his runaway victory in Saturday’s Grade II, $250,000 San Felipe at Santa Anita, jumped from No. 27 to No. 13 on the Kentucky Derby 137 Graded Stakes Earnings List. The list will likely determine the field for the “Run for the Roses” on Saturday, May 7 at Chu...Read More
It is now 2011 and that means we have officially embarked on the Kentucky Derby trail. Here in the East it’s been difficult to see even the slightest hint of rose blossoms buried beneath 20-30 inches of snow drifts. But, heck, they’ve already run the first Derby prep (the Count Fleet Stakes at Aqued...Read More

The Holy Bull Stakes (G3) lost a major contender when trainer Rick Dutrow pulled Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) runner-up Boys At Tosconova from consideration, but with a $400,000 purse the one-turn mile race nonetheless attracted a strong field. Mucho Macho Man has yet to secure a stakes wi...Read More
  • arazi · Mucho Macho Man is training like a beast, but there isn't as much speed as there looks in here. I think Leave of Absence can be tough in here, might even grab the lead from Black N Beauty. Gourmet Dinner, Major Gain and Dialed In have potential to be factors on the Derby trail, but not at one mile at Gulfstream unless there's a total pace meltdown, and that doesn't look likely here. · 1257 days ago ·
