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

Taptam, runner-up to Zenyatta last out, and Peruvian-bred Morena, who finished third behind runner-up Rachel Alexandra recently and second in this race a year ago, are among a field of 10 entered for the Obeah Stakes.Read More
The venue changed from Fair Grounds to Churchill Downs, and the rival changed from Zardana to Unrivaled Belle, but in the end Rachel Alexandra fell a head short for the second consecutive time. Read More

  • davidcrone · It's pretty simple...the filly wants her head and wants to go 46 and change or 47 flat. The 48 and 4 stuff allows other horses to be close who finish stronger than she does. She doesn't have an explosive turn of foot. You have to realize, when she goes 46 and 3 a horse has to go 48 and change just to be within ten lengths. They need to stop trying to make her rate and stop taking away her greatest weapon. · 1444 days ago ·

Rachel Alexandra, owned by Stonestreet Stables and Harold McCormick and trained by Steve Asmussen, stepped onto the racetrack under regular rider Dominic Terr...Read More
You might say there were a few no-shows Thursday at Churchill Downs for the Falls City Handicap, which was won in a mild upset by the Canadian invader, Serenading.Read More
When nobody wanted the early lead, Alan Garcia took Swift Temper there and you could tell under the finish for the first time they would be tough, and they were. With the cagey race riding, Garcia and Swift Temper went wire-to-wire in the Delaware Handicap.Read More
Team Valor International's UNBRIDLED BELLE (Broken Vow) hadn't visited the winner's circle since delivering a 5 3/4-length trouncing in the 2008 Obeah H. (G3), and her last two efforts -- unplaced runs in the Louisville Distaff (G2) and Spinster S. (G1) -- weren't pretty. Returning to familiar groun...Read More
