If there’s an American graded stakes race that is more interesting year in and year out than the Met Mile then I’m unsure I’ve located such an affair.  Each year you get a terrific mixture of sprinters attempting to negotiate that important 8th furlong and routers cutting back to achieve glory ...Read More

  • Sullivan · r2 @ Keeneland. Nice little sprinting colt. Quality Road had a lot of speed, his get should be quite talented. I didn't see many in sales. Doubt his book would be small, knowing Farish. Perhaps people just don't want to let them go. · 83 days ago ·

Hootenanny in Race #2 today at Keeneland ... I believe the bay gelding is the first son or daughter of the talented, but enigmatic, Quality Road to hit the races.
They didn't come by way of Cupid's arrow, but several 2-year-olds up for sale next month in Pomona are fantastic prospects.Read More

For those of you most familiar with my writing, you know me to be a Rachel man. To some, that would mean that I therefore could not be a Zenyatta backer. Maybe, but as a true fan and student of the game, I have nothing but the utmost respect for Queen Z. Perhaps the highest compliment I can bestow o...Read More

  • paula.higgins.167 · EP taylor, I don't think so. There is no way you can compare a super mare like Zenyatta to a very good male like Blame. In any other race against her, he would have been toast and I think you know that. He had a great, easy trip and she had problem after problem. A few more strides and she would have won. I think you know that. If you don't, you should. This race enhanced her reputation and there was a reason for that. No great female horse has had her running style and the ability to out stride the males, ever. She is the first one to do that and Blame was no exception. · 182 days ago ·

qr was always a top notch horse during the regular racing season. he got 2 top bsf's last season, and througout his career always hit the board. only problem was when classic time came around, he couldn't show up, twice. todd should have put him in the dirt mile in both 2009 and 2010, as 10f just was not his distance to win.

  • icyhotboo · Very nicely written. I believe Blame to this day doesn't get the credit he deserves. Not only did he run down QR but held off a monsterous charge by Zenyatta in the BCC. Where he belongs in the ratings I don't know or really care. His heart proved to be the largest part of him. Watching the Whitney I never thought he would get to QR who at that distance can be called formidable. · 1062 days ago ·
