What the Nation is saying about Medaglia d'Oro...

All of his first 8 starts were at different tracks... do not remember Frankel all that well, but wow
Samantha Nicole, a full sister to the 2009 Horse of the Year, Rachel Alexandra, finished second in her career debut today at Fair Grounds. Running for the familiar connections of Stonestreet Stables and trainer Steve Asmussen, the bay filly broke poorly under rider, Rosie Napravnik, and tracked the ...Read More

  • dani.pugh · Bernardini raced seven times. Blame ran 5 and was beaten badly in the Gold Cup. He beat some very very good horses, but he did it on a light schedule. Bernardini won the Withers, Preakness, Jim Dandy, Travers, and Gold Cup, and was second to a great horse in Invasor. His season was nothing short of dominating while Blame was not. · 95 days ago ·

Is Violence his only son at stud?
Taking full advantage of a picture-perfect ride by Edgar Prado, Rydilluc sprinted home to score in the rich Penn Mile in impressive fashion.Read More
  • AndyScoggin · Great day of racing put on by Dan Silver, Director of racing at Penn National. Rydilluc was an easy winner in what should be a graded stakes in 2014. · 319 days ago ·

  • Sully · It's great to see tracks presenting new stakes that will receive graded accolades in the future. Nice win by Rydilluc, but I felt it was the perfect setup. Don't be surprised to see Noble Tune turn the tables in the summer. · 318 days ago ·

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

The 20 horses who will linGe up in the starting gate to run for the roses this year are horses like any of the other 28,000 Thoroughbreds born in 2010. Some are homebreds: born and raised by the same owners in whose silks they run. Others are purchased through the auction ring, sometimes multiple ti...Read More

As I go through and look at the potential contenders for the Derby and the Oaks and their pedigrees, it gets me thinking – if money wasn’t an issue and I owned a mare, which sire would I have her bred to?Read More
  • cocoa2 · Speightstown seems to be based off his wives, as far as distance goes. Haynesfield was out of a distance running mare while Speightstown's sprinters are usually out of sprinters. He is a good pick for any mare, but if you're looking for a colt who wants 10f and the mommy only wanted 8f, I think Hat Trick or Street Cry would be your man. · 370 days ago ·

  • kay.robinett · Mike in SB, I believe (someone please correct me if I am wrong) that every Triple Crown winner with the exception of Sir Barton began his three year old season in a sprint and stretched out in distance from there. Not sure why trainers have gotten away from this, and also from using well placed allowance races to bring their horses into form? · 415 days ago ·

  • dani.pugh · Mike, I believe the more you race/train while young the better the horse will handle racing down the road. There is no subsitute for the real thing, never. I get some horses run better off more rest, however not all are like that. I don't think that was the case of Violence's injury, meaning lack of conditioning. I think it was partially, but i also think the track and the pace had more to do with it. A horse who is lightly raced going 6f 1.08 in Feb is simply way way way too fast. Pletcher could not have forseen a pace that quick, nobody could. The only person who could have done anything at that point was the jockey, by keeping his colt farther off that pace, knowing it way too fast. · 415 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · After seeing her decimate the Old Hat field, I'm really excited for a potential match-up with Groupie Doll later on down the road. It would be nice to see it at this meet, but I doubt her connections would want to run KK against her elders so early in the year. · 470 days ago ·
