I was going to bet the good turfer Hitchcock when he came to Hollywood one Summer but I was tipped by a vet that he was a terrible shipper and stayed off him to my relief as he demonstrated that to be true right out there on the course acting up all the way to the gate. · 4 hours ago ·

Very proud of ROC, hes really maturing.... great 2nd in Ark Derby... On to the Derby... Been with you all along the journey since ellis park.
In the last weekend of major preps for the 2014 Kentucky Derby, Danza sprung a huge upset in the Arkansas Derby, and Dance With Fate waltzed by his rivals in the Blue Grass.Read More

  • https://www.facebook.com/steve.mcintyre3 · The Arkansas Derby wasnt suspect at all... Its just that a California or New York based horse didnt win it, so it its not newsworthy to the press. Hmm let me think, didnt Bayern come from the West and he was the next superstar... Look like to me Danza and Ride on Curlin beat him. Tapiture is no dog and Conquest Titan is very talented. Its evident that Strong Mandate is better than hes shown, he will be back. Arkansas Derby isnt gonna get much press Better check the time, it was barely off what Will take Charge ran. · 14 hours ago ·

  • travel_vic · when are you going to realize that HORSES win races not farriers, grooms, trainers or riders. Quit looking at the connections and concentrate on the actual beings that participate and make racing racing. WOuld you bet on the New York Knicks based upon who their trainer was or the LA Dodgers by their exercise instructor? Of course not... · 1 day ago ·

Jon Court described his first ride aboard Ride on Curlin. "Everything came together, and he's been pressed his last couple of races," Court said, referring to his third-place efforts in the Southwest and Rebel. "Actually, he tested me on the backside like it's time to go. I had to just put him in a position to settle and I knew I had a lot of horse turning for home. I was kind of taken back to see the one horse (Danza) just continue coming off that seven-eigths.I thought he was making a move, and I made my move, and he outfinished us. He's to be respected. It was a good field of horse flesh."

  • shores · They've done right by him, too. They haven't pushed him too hard, and I think he is definitely a sleeper on derby day. I like him a lot. · 2 days ago ·

  • jimmy.powell.395 · Goblin, I've looked at that race over and over and I think he ran hell of a race and if Danza doesnt run the race of his life ( at 40 to 1 ) ROC wins that race !!!! · 2 days ago ·

Ignored at odds of 41-1, Danza made the most of his maiden opportunity around two-turns, and ran away with the $1 million Arkansas Derby by an impressive 4 3/4 lengths.Read More
I don't think he'll win if he goes to Kentucky, but I am a fan of this horse and think he will improve with age and experience. I hope to see him around next year as a strapping 4 year old!
ROC got second , gooood race.
  • Exterminator · He's improving. I hope he gets a 2nd behind Chrome in the Derby, because that one's not getting beat again for a while. · 3 days ago ·

  • tmallios · Furlonger someone has factored in the bruised foot. The only one that matters in this. That would be Baffert,this horse is so valuable. They would never risk putting him on the track exposing him to injury. Baffert already has an Army ready to run in the Derby. He does not need to panic and rush a horse. If you do not like him today on his merits,fair point. But do not lay off him because of the injury. Baffert has been pointing for this race for a month,he knew exactly where he ws running once Hoppertunity beat this field in his last. bpiets i have never been a fan of Strong Mandate,but i agree with you.I think this horse will run big today and i think he will be 2nd best. · 3 days ago ·
