What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Mr Speaker...

Let’s Go Stable’s undefeated Divine Oath, who did not draw into last Saturday’s Toyota Blue Grass (G1) field off the also-eligible list, will face 10 rivals this Saturday when he makes his stakes debut in the 33rd running of the $200,000 Coolmore Lexington (G3) at 1 1/16 miles on the main track.Read More
After he wins the Bluegrass he will go to the Derby.Cant wait

  • jimandcarrie.kenney · I say that he'll mature into a nice dirt horse. I don't see him doing anything spectacular in the derby though because he's not used to the dirt. I thought it was a poor decision of McGaughey's to push Mr Speaker to the Bluegrass and then onto the derby. · 8 days ago ·

  • audy · Really sorry he doesn't start. Looked like a fairly easy win, even the derby looked good for him. With all those speedy horses upfront... I don't understand horse racing... but sad am I, yes, took some of the excitement out of a great week-end. · 6 days ago ·

Mr Speaker will get back on turf for the $150,000 Palm Beach Stakes (G3) at Gulfstream Park Saturday. The dark bay colt made a dashing rally up the fence to win the $100,000 Dania Beach Stakes (G3) on the sod in December, but trainer Shug McGaughey opted to experiment with the main track for the $40...Read More

  • jinlie01 · Storming Inti is definitely the lone speed/pacesetter..I can see him controlling the pace throughout but with his expected short price and hoping Gala Award applies some pressure...taking a shot with Mr. Speaker (he can be in stalking position) and intrigued with Smart Cover's return. · 47 days ago ·

Looks like he may go the Dullahan route (Palm Beach/Blue Grass) to the Derby.

on February 25, Mr Speaker worked 4F at Payson Park Training on Firm Turf in :49.00 b finishing 1/1.
Going into The Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park we all knew it was loaded with talent and the best prep on paper to date. Well, it did not disappoint as the winner, Cairo Prince, put on a powerful performance in demolishing this field. Read More

noticed something interesting...according to the entries on DRF Mr Speaker will be running WITHOUT lasix. Is this true? I find it odd that it seems like Shug usually runs his two year olds without lasix and then when they run at three he uses lasix. Can anyone explain this? I'll be honest, I am a fan of horses running without lasix.
Shug McGaughey is set to saddle Mr Speaker for Saturday’s $400,000 Holy Bull (G2), an important prep race on the Road to the Kentucky Derby, but the Hall of Fame trainer could well come up with another prospect for the spring classics earlier on the 11-race program. Read More
