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

Mill Ridge Farm’s defending winner Keep Up and Four D Stables’ millionaire Turallure, winner of the 2011 Woodbine Mile (GI) and a narrowly-defeated runner-up in that year’s Breeders’ Cup Mile (GI) at Churchill Downs, top a roster of 43 older turf stars nominated to compete in Churchill Downs 36th ru...Read More

Come on Najaar!
In last year’s inaugural running of the American St. Leger, it was the globetrotting Jakkalberry owned by Darren Dance’s Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock and trained by Marco Botti that took home the top prize in the $400,000 race. That team returns this year with the British-bred Dandino in hopes...Read More

  • KyOaksRunner · Dullahan is such a gorgeous horse, I always feel like I want to pick him because he looks so great, but he's also very erratic in his performances, I'm not sure I'm going to throw my support behind him again. · 280 days ago ·
  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · This horse is so night and day. But I will be rooting for him in this race · 279 days ago ·
Dark Cove grabbed the lead with a quarter mile to run and held off late charges by Atigun and Najjaar to win the 76th running of the Grade III, $111,800 Louisville Handicap by a half-length on Saturday afternoon at Churchill Downs.Read More
  • kailiking · Atigun's progress on the turf continues to amaze me. Hope to see a more free running Atigun in his next attempt, and continue his dam's bottomside tradition of Speed on the front end. With Devil's Bag and Dr. Fager representation...what more could you ask for. · 323 days ago ·
Dark Cove, 4 ¼-length winner of the Elkhorn (Grade II) in his most recent start, tops a field of nine 3-year-olds and up entered for Saturday’s 76th running of the $100,000-added Louisville Handicap (GIII) at 1 ½ miles on the Matt Winn Turf Course at Churchill Downs.Read More
Saturday’s $150,000 Razorback Handicap (G3) drew a competitive 10-horse field featuring some familiar horses to Oaklawn fans, including last year’s winner Alternation, Donoharm, winner of the Fifth Season and Essex this season, and two of last year’s top 3-year-olds, Najjaar and Atigun. Read More
I thought he looked good yesterday at OP, finished well.

  • Floridaf · He's run more times on dirt than he has on turf/synthetics combined, and his two wins were on the dirt. · 493 days ago ·
  • Mary Z. · That's why he (and this is meant in good humor) owes me $15, because why shouldn't Najjaar have been making up ground with those 26+ fractions. Deceiving unless one looks at the slow fractions. Now I do. · 493 days ago ·
Favorites were the order of the day in Saturday’s stakes races at Arlington Park with Stone Farm, John Adger, Oakcrest Farm & Mike Stidham’s Upperline taking the Grade III $150,000 Arlington Matron and Mark Bacon & Dana Wells’ Silver Max capturing the $125,000 Arlington Classic.Read More

Welcome to the last Derby dance Saturday! While the Arkansas Derby itself seems to be coming up lighter than in recent years, there are some BIG names running at the "Spa of the South" tomorrow.Read More
  • 12thCrown · Already changed my long-shot picks after a few more hours of study - I like Cozzetti as the sleeper pick but think Isn't He Clever will be tough with his stalking style. Good luck all! · 733 days ago ·
  • BrianZipse · Looking forward to the Oaklawn Handicap every bit as much as the Arkansas Derby ... I like Nehro and Alternation. · 733 days ago ·
The Oaklawn Park 3-year-olds take their final steps toward Kentucky Derby 2012 in Saturday’s G1 Arkansas Derby and Bodemeister and Secret Circle share top billing for trainer Bob Baffert. #11 Bodemeister is the 9-5 morning line favorite. The unraced juvenile landed the place in his Santa Anita sprin...Read More
Eleven 3-year-olds are set for Saturday’s $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1) led by the Bob Baffert-trained duo of Bodemeister and Secret Circle.Read More

The son of Scat Daddy has gone from L.A. to San Francisco to Cincinnati and now Hot Springs with a start coming Saturday in the $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1) a...Read More
Shadwell Stables' Najjaar races, works and pretty much lives his life taking his time early before getting going in earnest.
