  • medlocke · Dutrow's horse, Radiohead, raced in the UK in 2009 with some success. He won the 09' Norfolk stakes at Ascot. Then finished 3rd at York in the 09 Nunthorpe Stakes against older horses. The race, in fact, was won by 8yr.old Boderlesscott. Then, he raced at Newmarket and ran a tremendous race in the 09' Middle Park Stakes. Just narrowly missing running down the still undefeated, and one of the UK's top 3yr.old prospects, Awzaan. Awzaan is very good colt. Radiohead really pushed him as hard as he's been pushed yet in any of his 4 lifetime starts. · 1453 days ago ·
  • rossington · I know that I've read a lot of comment's on different racing web-sites that racing fan's in both Ireland and the UK are begging for Jerry Moss to send Zenyatta over to Ascot to race. I hate to disappoint the European racing fan's, but at this point I'll just be happy if we can get her to come east of Arkansas. I did, however, just yesterday read a story that said that Zenyatta, after she's retired from racing, may be sent over to be bread to Sea The Stars. The story claimed that John Shirreffs said Sea The Stars is his pick for a sire to bread Zenyatta to. The great UK mare Zarkava is in foal to Sea The Stars right now. · 1453 days ago ·
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

  • arazi · Musket Man - Eskendereya ran the FOY in 1:48 4/5, not two seconds faster than Ice Box. Also, GP had a really good day on Saturday. Great attendance, great handle. Tracks have to decide what business they are in? The business of producing top Derby contenders like Dunkirk and Quality Road, or producing nice increases in handle/attendance like they did on Saturday. · 1486 days ago ·
  • gardenesque1 · If using BSF's, Eskendereya got a 106 in the FOY. Ice Box got a 99 in the Florida Derby. 2 Beyer points equal a length in routes, so Eskendereya ran about 3.5 lengths faster. Great to see a successful Florida Derby day at the Gulf. · 1486 days ago ·
The top three finishers from Saturday's $750,000 Florida Derby came out of their races in good order and will now set their sights on the May 1 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, their connections said Sunday. Ice Box, Pleasant Prince, and Rule will all run in the Derby without having another prep r...Read More
Both Radiohead and Awesome Act have been sent to the U.S. from racing on the Turf over racetracks in Great Britain. I've seen all of Radiohead and Awsome Act's races in Great Britain on either attheraces.com or on RacingUK. Radiohead is a colt that's looked quite impressive in the UK on grass. Awesome Act, as well has had some success on grass, but has not been as effective over the surface as Radiohead. In yesterday's Florida Derby, I thought Edgar Prado may have taken Radiohead a bit too wide in the race. Even still, Radiohead was well beaten on conventional dirt in the Florida Derby. Awesome Act, however, is a different story. Although not as established on Turf as Radiohead, he certainly has taken immediately to the conventional dirt tracks that he has raced on since coming to the U.S. I still think, to date today, that Awesome Act's run in winning the Gotham Stakes at Aqueduct, is the most impressive Derby prep performance that I've seen yet. That's not to say that another Derby contender couldn't still emerge with a more impressive performance. Given that the Louisiana Derby, the Arkansas Derby, the Santa Anita Derby, and the Toyota Bluegrass Stakes are all still pending on the racing schedule. JMO.
FLORIDA DERBY Stakes Quotes Nick Zito (trainer, Ice Box, 1st) –  “I have to take it one step at a time with this horse and be thankful that he won this race. That’s the way we’re gonna approach it. You can think about running him back in three weeks and then another three weeks (Derby), but we’...Read More

Normally, the second wave of 3-year-olds doesn’t hit the shore all at once in a grade I, $750,000 race, but Gulfstream’s decision to run the Florida Derby (gr. I) six weeks before the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), has chased a number of the top 3-year-olds out of town, including t...Read More
Todd Pletcher's other horse, Rule, the #3 horse in this week's HRN Derby Power Rankings, will be favored in the Florida Derby over Lentenor and 9 others.Read More
  • Rossington · I really like Rule as one of my potential Kentucky Derby horses to use this year. Winner of 4 in a row on conventional dirt, and never off of the board in 7 lifetime starts, all on dirt. Rule is a big, physical horse that likes to run up-front and wear down the competition. His biggest challenge in this race will likely come from the colt from Great Britain, Radiohead. I've watched replays of Radiohead's races in the UK on attheraces.com and RacingUK. He's a quick colt with a very nice turn of foot. I haven't as of yet seen him race over dirt, but he did look quite impressive in the UK on Turf. · 1491 days ago ·
  • medlocke · I don't think there's any question that Rule should be the favorite for the Florida Derby. With 4 straight wins, and never off of the board in 7 starts, all on dirt, he certainly has the most established credentials of any of the other horses going into the race. But one potential contender, Radiohead, has already established some credentials of his on, allbeit on Turf, in Great Britain. Here are Radiohead's races and their results during his 2009, 2yr.old campaign in Great Britain: 1. 5-13-09 Newmarket- stanjames.com Maiden Stakes: 2nd to High Spice 2. 5-18-09 Bath- Online Betting Forum EBF Novice Stakes(class 5): Won 3. 6-18-09 Ascot- Norfolk Stakes (Group 2): Won 4. 8-21-09 York- Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes (Group 2): 3rd to older horses. Won by 8yr.old Borderless Scott. 5. 9-19-09 Newbury- Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes (Group 1): 4th to undefeated Awzaan. 6. 9-02-09 Newmarket- Shadwell Middle Park Stakes: 2nd to undefeated Awzaan Now in the U.S., He finished a far back 7th in the 09' B.C. Juvenile won by Vale of York. He most recently just defeated Homeboychris in an allowance race at Gulfstream Park. So, IMO, Radiohead may be the one horse in the Florida Derby established enough so that he could really step up and challenge Rule. He's got an impressive turn of foot, and has raced all of the best 2yr.old's now turning 3yrs.old in Great Britain. Plus, as a 2yr.old, raced older horses in the Nunthorpe Stakes. I still give Rule the edge because he's much more accomplished on dirt, but Radiohead's Turf accomplishments leads me to believe he may be a factor in the race. JMO. NOTE: In Radiohead's first race, the initials EBF, for those who don't know, stands for (European Breeders Fund). · 1490 days ago ·
Robert LaPenta’s 3-year-old Ice Box drilled a ‘bullet’ half-mile in 47 1/5 Saturday morning at Palm Meadows for trainer Nick Zito as he tunes up for his engagement in next Saturday’s $750,000 Florida Derby (G1) at Gulfstream Park, bidding to improve on his fifth-place finish last out in the Fasig-Ti...Read More

Saturday might be a good time to kick off a two-prep campaign for the Derby.

Great dirt debut by Radiohead. He was a real runner over the turf in Europe - distance will be the biggest question.
There are so many top 3-year-olds who still have questions to answer it makes it tough to come up with a list of 12 horses each week that you’re perfectly happy with.   There are always going to be horses you’d love to include who just haven’t done quite enough to warrant supplanting the more a...Read More
He received a lot of respect at the windows at the Breeders' Cup (shown), but even more respect at Gulfstream Park in an allowance event he soundly handled, defeating quality foes in the process. What's next?Read More
