  • PattieMulderig · Think this horse will really make his presence felt in 2012. I've always liked him, especially since I got to spend some time with him before the Breeders Cup in 2010. He's got an enormous personality and the talent to match. · 851 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · What a race he put in today! Very impressed with how he handled the pace and still had enough left to finish the job. I'm very excited about his 2012 campaign. · 851 days ago ·

George and Lori Hall’s Nacho Friend dug in gamely to repel the challenge of Toboggan Slide, capturing the $54,000 allowance/optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park on Sunday.   Trained by Kelly John Breen and ridden by Angel Serpa, Nacho Friend covered the mile over a sloppy main track in 1:...Read More

After scoring an impressive victory in the $175,000 Long Branch Stakes on Saturday at Monmouth Park, Mill House’s Trappe Shot may have earned himself a ticket to face Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver in the Aug. 1 IZOD Haskell Invitational. Trappe Shot broke alertly and settled in behind pacesette...Read More
For 3-year-olds who haven’t made an impact in the Triple Crown races or other major spring events, the $175,000 Long Branch Stakes, which will be renewed for the 76th time here Saturday -- represents a final chance to wangle an invitation to the $1 million IZOD Haskell Invitational (G1) on Aug. 1, ...Read More
Six 3-year-olds have entered Saturday’s Long Branch Stakes at Monmouth Park, all perhaps with an eye on the Jersey Shore’s top prize - the $1 million IZOD Haskell Invitational on Aug. 1. But before anyone makes plans on facing Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver in the IZOD Haskell, they need to pass...Read More
Gainesway Farm and Martin L. Cherry’s Afleet Express sat off the early pace of Schoolyard Dreams and Jackson Bend before moving past the pacesetters just before the quarter-pole and then digging in all the way to the wire to post a length and three-quarters win in the $200,000 Grade 3 Pegasus Stake...Read More

Updated 2010 Kentucky Derby Graded Stakes earnings as of March 31, 2010. Key contenders Eskendereya, Caracortado, Schoolyard Dreams, Drosselmeyer, Jackson Bend and Pleasant Prince will all likely require more graded stakes earnings to get in. Read More
  • bband · It seems like more horses will get shut out this year than in recent memory. What will be interesting is if Pletcher starts all 7 horses, fully knowing the lesser ones can't compete with his top runners. But what it will do is keep several real contenders out of the race. · 1483 days ago ·

  • Rossington · As well as he's raced over every conventional dirt track that he's ever ran, I still find it hard to believe that Rick Dutrow isn't going to take a shot at the 2010 Kentucky Derby with D' Funnybone. I really think it's a distance question with Dutrow. But that wouldn't deter me from taking a shot with this colt, because none of the incoming contenders will be proven yet at 1-1/4.

  • Rossington · Boy, that Florida Stallion Series sure must not have paid very well for Jackson Bend to be so far down the list in Graded earnings. I also thought D' Funnybone with win's in the Saratoga Special, the Futurity Stakes, the Hutcheson Stakes, and the Swale Stakes, plus a place effort in the Frank Gomez Stakes would have acquired more money in Graded earnings than his total suggest. · 1479 days ago ·

With several rich Derby preps run yesterday, surely there was a key race pointing out one of the big contenders to wear the roses in five weeks. Was it the $2 million UAE Derby? No, the only good Northern Hemisphere three-year-old in the field, Mendip, could not handle his slightly older competition...Read More
The most important horse on the 2010 Triple Crown trail so far is -- drumroll please -- WOW WOW WOW. He brings serious pace to Saturday's Louisiana Derby and opens it up for closers to qualify for the Kentucky Derby in a year loaded with nothing but speed-types. He single-handedly enflames the La De...Read More
