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

Colizeo controlled the pace but could hold off Apart in the Grade 3 William Donald Schaefer Memorial at Pimlico on Preakness Saturday. Colizeo was in command setting comfortable fractions of :24.38, :48.83, and 1:13.19 under John Velazquez but Apart was never far back. Garrett Gomez made his wide mo...Read More
Apart, the 5-2 morning line favorite in Saturday's Grade 3 William Donald Schaefer Memorial at Pimlico, tries to end a 4-race losing streak dating back to last November.   Al Stall Jr.'s consistent son of Flatter began his roll at Louisiana Downs last summer and after winning the Super Derby an...Read More

III) April 23 at Keeneland.Only five older horses were drawn for the 1 1/8-mile Ben Ali, the first of two graded stakes on Keeneland’s 10-race card. Post time...Read More
Saturday's $1,000,000 Charles Town Classic has attracted a field of fourteen but only ten can run around the half mile oval and Rule is proven over the bullring configuration. Read More
  • ArturoLaguna · Mr. Zipse: If memory serves me right, Tackleberry beat rule in Gulfstream last month. Granted Rule won the Delta million in his 2 year campaign, but that was very soft company and a solitary victory does not make 1 proven in the bullring configuration. JUst like in his previous 2-3 starts, Rule will be a bridesmaid once more. So, I'm picking Tackleberry and Game on Dude exact box. David Flores on G ON D is the King of the Fairplex bullring... · 1105 days ago ·

Looks like the steeplechase thing didn't pan out so Researcher returns from an 11-month hiatus and is back to flat racing at Charles Town (8th race) on Saturday night. If things go well look for him to attempt at CT Classic three-peat for new trainer Neil Morris.
Following his repeat triumph in the 2010 Charles Town Classic, Researcher’s new owner, Zohar Ben-Dov’s Kinross Corp., decided to send him off to a new career in the steeplechase ranks despite his victory over some of the nation’s top handicap horses.As it turns out, that wasn’t the only surprising t...Read More
Kinross Corp.’s Researcher again played to the home crowd at Charles Town Races & Slots April 17 with a repeat victory in the Charles Town Classic, one of the richest races in the country for older horses with a purse of $1 million. Read More
To the average person handicapping the $1 million Charles Town Classic, Researcher would hardly seem to qualify as an underdog. The gelding by Two Start won the inaugural running of the 1 1/8-mile race a year ago and though he will face top older horses like Gone Astray, Acting Zippy, Awesome Gem, a...Read More

As we find ourselves in the dog days of Thoroughbred racing, there are only two graded stakes races in the country this weekend, both of them Grade III.

Saturday's $100,000 Queens County H (G3) is the final graded event of the New York season and the only one contested over Aqueduct's inner dirt during the track's fall meet. The logical favorite in the 1 3/16-mile feature is RESEARCHER (Two Smart), who captured the Queens County a year ago by a half...Read More
Robert LaPenta Coal Play, best known for nearly shocking Big Brown in last year's Haskell Invitational (gr. I), will look for his fourth win over the Monmouth Park main track when he takes on six rivals in the $300,000 Philip H. Iselin Stakes (gr. III) on Aug. 22.Read More
