  • rorschach1992 · Did he actually state Mission Approved and Dean's Kitten as being some of the best in the WORLD???? MmmHmm. Is he not aware that they both ran on World stages and were absolute non-factors, Mission Approved 14th out of 16 in the Japan Cup and Dean's Kitten 9th and last in the BC Turf. That's really not a glowing recommendation for Cape Blanco. · 825 days ago ·

  • ILuvTurfRacing · Terrific effort from Perfect Shirl to win the F&M Turf!! Not really any excuses to speak of for Nahrain. But Misty For Me had an extremely wide PP draw to overcome, plus she stumbled down to her knees coming out of the gate, and nearly went completely down, and she was still still closing like a shot. A better start and PP draw for MFM, and I believe she win's the F&M Turf. · 841 days ago ·

  • atamulonis · Never Retreat and Inglorious...those are two names that had slipped to the back of my mind in recent weeks. I do believe Never Retreat definitely has made a good case for consideration in the Eclipse Awards. Thank you for pointing that out because I had sure forgotten about her. · 891 days ago ·

How was it?That’s the question I’ve been asked since returning home from my first ‘working’ trip to the Breeders’ Cup.It’s not the easiest thing to put into words, but the soundtrack to the scene would certainly be fuelled by the Happy Monday’s, '24 Hour Party People'.Read More
The head-spinning Breeders’ Cup has come and gone, and in some respects should not have been a surprise given how head-spinning the rest of the year has been (think way back to the ups and downs of the road to the Triple Crown). There’s no shortage of race recaps (and you’ve probably read them all b...Read More
