Miner's Escape

(USA) by [Add Data]

What the Nation is saying about Miner's Escape...

Horse racing's second season hits a high point Aug. 29 with the running of the $1-million Shadwell Travers Stakes (gr. I) at Saratoga, and this Saturday at Saratoga seven 3-year-olds will assemble for the 46th running of the $500,000 Jim Dandy Stakes (gr. II).Read More
  • cigar · Rachel or Kensei to the Travers? We find out this weekend... · 1725 days ago ·
  • arazi · Kensei and Munnings ran such huge races around one turn... will be interesting to see how the do going two turns... · 1725 days ago ·
Organized horse racing in West Virginia dates back at least 223 years, but no horse who has won the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) has ever competed in the Mountaineer State before. That status is going to change on Aug. 1, when Mine That Bird goes to the post in the $750,000 West Virginia Derby (gr. II) at...Read More

  • Ana B · He's good but he's not nearly as good as Laffit Pincay! That man can race. He's going to be at this poker tournament this September! I hope I can go, cause they are giving fans a chance to meet him. Go here if you wanna sign up.. www.sportslegendschallenge.com -Ana B · 1781 days ago ·
The two key figures in the pace scenario for Saturday’s Belmont Stakes are Miner's Escape and Charitable Man. The former will be a longshot in the field of 10, while Charitable Man was made the 3-1 second choice behind Mine That Bird. So, let’s see how this may play out...Read More
  • mshutty · Excellent analysis of the Belmont Stakes likely pace scenario by Steve Haskin. I think he has the two early leaders nailed down. There is no doubt in my mind that the Zito barn is sending Miner's Escape. I believe Steve's estimate of where Dunkirk will be sitting early is interesting. He has decent trackable cruising speed, so if the pace is slow he'll find himself closer to the leaders than is being projected but without compromising his late punch. Agree, however that I would prefer he sits about 5 lengths off early closing that gap to two lengths behind about mid final turn. · 1781 days ago ·
In fact, Robert LaPenta has two chances to join Chenery--Miner’s Escape and Brave Victory. Longshots? Maybe, but don’t try convincing LaPenta he doesn’t have a chance, not while last year’s 38-1 stunning Belmont Stakes victory with Da' Tara is fresh on his mind. “I have to tell you, that day will be...Read More
Never again will I utter or write a bad word about Mine That Bird. He is a lot of things, and a one-race wonder is not among them. Nevertheless, the key to winning Saturday is to throw Mine That Bird out in the Belmont, a race that is, for him, a terrible fit. It's going to be a two-horse race betwe...Read More
The two main elements in predicting the ‘09 Belmont Stakes outcome are pedigree and pace handicapping.Pace makes the race, and Charitable Man looms the one to catch. He is 3-3 on conventional dirt and 2-2 at Belmont. He pulled off a wire job in 6.5f career bow and is capable of rating should another...Read More
Under bright, sunny skies, Robert V. LaPenta’s pair of Brave Victory and Miner's Escape worked in tandem after the break under jockey Rajiv Maragh and exercise rider Eddie Cruz, respectively, going a half-mile in :48.66 over the fast main track. The time was the fifth-fastest of 14 at the distance.A...Read More
Continued wet weather in the New York metropolitan area has left the final serious works of several contenders for the June 6 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) up in the air.Mrs. John Magnier, Michael B. Tabor, and Derrick Smith’s Dunkirk, and Mr. and Mrs. William K. Warren’s Charitable Man, who were both sche...Read More
...And then there is Zito. The native New Yorker has started 20 horses in the Belmont and has hit the board with 11 of them.Thursday, Zito watched Brave Victory, who was third in the Peter Pan in his last start, work four furlongs in 48.55 seconds and then saw Miner's Excape, who won the Frederico T...Read More
Two of trainer Nick Zito's three Belmont Stakes (G1) candidates turned in half-mile workouts on Thursday at Belmont Park. Brave Victory, the third-place finisher in the Peter Pan Stakes (G2), covered the distance in :48.56 under Eddie Cruz. Federico Tesio Stakes winner Miner’s Escape was clocked in ...Read More

  • arazi · The thing you have to remember about Zito is he is always cognizant of how early speed can take these Triple Crown races. Think about: - Go for Gin - Louis Quatorze - Da' Tara Also, Commentator loafing on the lead is pretty tough... · 1794 days ago ·
There will be no Triple Crown winner in 2009, but there is a possibility of a showdown in the June 6 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) between the winners of the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) and Blackberry Preakness Stakes (gr. I).Read More
It is understandable that the connections of Mine That Bird were not looking beyond the Derby and Woolley on Sunday morning was hesitant to commit the surprising winner to the second leg of the Triple Crown."It wasn't something that was on our radar, but we will decide in a day or two," Woolley told...Read More
Saturday at Pimlico Race Course, the Zito-trained Miner's Escape came home a winner in the $75000 Federico Tesio Stakes. The Tesio has been used as a springboard to the Preakness by standouts such as Deputed Testamony (1983), Oliver's Twist (1995) and ...Read More
