against other champions!


Kentucky (USA) by [Add Data]

What the Nation is saying about Shackelford...

I honestly think that todays Travis only shows that this horse needs a new trainer and jockey.
  • mmiller · What a sin to such a champion whats wrong are these guys getting paid off by Stay Thirsty owner · 962 days ago ·

  • lsbrilliance77 · I'm saying I think Animal Kingdom will show it's Greatness, Mucho Macho Man to show you and me what it's mad of, Stay Thirsty to come in with the best of them, Prime Cut on his tail, Nehro n 2nd, 3rd Master of Hounds, Shackleford after that. Hold on let me look again, that was just off the top of my head. Ruler of Ice is not a bad horse and it has an ok starting position. · 1040 days ago ·

One is measured in hands, while the other, in feet. One towered over his opponents with unprecedented size and strength; the other beats his foes with speed and courage. One's career has just begin to reach it's zenith, as the other bids farewell to a Hall of Fame career. No matter how you spell it,...Read More

He is wonderful, we couldn't be happier. We watched several times this year at Gulfstream running his heart out and felt he deserved to win.
  • blooy · he was fantastic, a great distance for him today. i saw how he held on being pressed my comma to the top and not dropping till the very end. horse has some stamina. storm cat throws i nice one! · 1060 days ago ·
Back by popular demand, I offer my thoughts on each horse running for the Middle Jewel of racing's Triple Crown.Read More

  • cugel the clever · Zatt said "Astrology has been beaten consistently by lesser horses, he's a possibility to turn it around, but I can't bet him". Nonsense. Astrology is one of only 6 horses in this race who has won a graded stakes race. And that six does not include Mr.C. Astrology has also placed 2nd in three other graded stakes races in his career. He belongs in this race more than does most of the field. I pick him for 4th but won't be surprised if he's closer. · 1062 days ago ·
  • crazy horse · Mr Commons is my LS play along with Sway Away. I don't know why anyone would be more than a little worried about Dialed In, Astrology or Midnight Interlude and I'd be very worried about Flashpoint. Have you seen what Wesley does with 1stW/Trn? Of course, the only way he or any other front runner will win is if they run :47 or slower. · 1062 days ago ·
The eyes of the racing world shift quickly from the Kentucky Derby to the Preakness. The question everyone is asking is can Animal Kingdom do it again?Read More

  • TommyBee · If Shackleford can hold off the late surge I got him going wire to wire..........But Dialed in and Animal Kingdom will make their usual late pushes · 1070 days ago ·

It’s not always the case to say the best horse won the Kentucky Derby, but after watching Animal Kingdom roll down the lane yesterday to win the 137th edition of the Run for the Roses by an ever widening 2 ¾ lengths, I would have a hard time saying that anyone but the winner was the best horse in th...Read More

  • El Kabong · They won't stop him at old hilltop. Turn up the fractions, he'll still be there. I looked at his turf splits at GP, 3/3/11 and he was coming home on decent splits in that one mile race. He has better turn of feet action than I originally thought. As Gary Stevens said right after watching the overhead replay."This horse is going to love Pimlico with his running style and the way he quickens up." Should be exciting. Who'll be there with him? Nehro needs a break. Mucho looks like a plodder best for Belmont. Shackleford, prime candidate to bounce. · 1073 days ago ·
  • El Kabong · Right now, I like Mr. Commons and Astrology to run on under the AK at Pimlico. Hats off to Neumeier for providing yet another beautiful derby moment when he asked crusty Barry how many trainers had lied to him....."PLENTY!" fired the old curmudgeon.Neumeier's reply was great...."Barry Irwin, Honest Guy" · 1073 days ago ·
Both Victor Espinoza and Patrick Valenzuela enter the 137th running of the $2 million Kentucky Derby (Grade I) presented by Yum! Brands hoping to relive the glory they’ve already experienced at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May.Read More
As unpredictable as this season’s Derby Trail has been, I feel like I should attach a disclaimer to my final rankings before the 2011 Kentucky Derby … but that’s no fun. So here they are, my thoughts on all 20 horses (better make it 21 just in case.) Because of the near impossible task of separating...Read More

And then there were just four. With confirmation today that both The Factor and J P’s Gusto won’t run, only four horses that have been based on the West Coast at some point in their career are left as contenders for the 20 spots available in the starting gate at Churchill Downs for this year’s Kentu...Read More

  • mdoche · It will be interesting to see if Rosario would ride Anthony's Cross over Brilliant Speed. Baffert and Espinoza team up with Midnight Interlude in War Emblem style. Very interesting since Espinoza doesn't really ride for Baffert anymore. · 1085 days ago ·
  • 12thCrown · I though JP's Gusto would step up in the Rebel, but his distance limitations caught up with him. It was a shame to see Pegasus injured. · 1080 days ago ·
