  • travel_vic · ONE THING I was told to NEVER mention to him (well that is if you want him to ever respond to you again later) is the handling of Izvestia. Horse had done enough for syndication. ads in the journals about his services being at Gainesway and then they HAD to race him one more time in the Fall with tragic results. I had noted that he had been fouled in a race in New England on the same back leg that gave way at Woodbine and wondered if that was the reason that he had been off most of that last summer. Topic never to be mentioned so I stayed away. · 27 days ago ·

Before we look ahead to a new racing season, let's take pause to say good-bye and good luck to those that are leaving the track and moving on to their second careersRead More
It's fun to imagine the possibilities of what you would do given the opportunity to breed your ideal race horse.Read More

  • manuelsch97 · We do not have triple crown winners any more, because of the problem Matt tries to solve here, what is more eye catching? the winner of the Derby, the preakness and the BC classic, or the winner of the belmont, the JC gold cup and the brooklyn hdcp? people try to breed the fast miler that can go 10 fourlongs, than the big strong horse that can go the big distances, the middle distances sell more than the so called "dead distances", this problem does not appear in south america, or england, because the important races are run in 2400 meters just like the belmont, so a horse that runs a mile or 10 fourlongs has no chance of being the top horse inthe country. To fix this problem here, we need some big farms to stop focusing on the big money for lets say 4 to 5 years, and start breeding stamina horses with stalliond from england or maybe argentina, to mix the offspring with milers from here and eventually in 4 to 5 crops, we'll have a horse that can run 9 fourlongs and 13 as well, its not an exact science, because if it would be everybody would be breeding triple crown winners every year, but its not a secret that year in and year out, the long distance races are won by second tear horses, not the top ones because they are not build for those races. · 79 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · Since 1979, 20 horses have won two jewels of the Triple Crown, out of 34 runnings, for a 59% near miss. In other words almost 60% of the TC's since 1979 were near misses. It would seem bad luck is the culprit, not the horses. The figures show the ability is there just not the luck needed to go with it. Think about how many of those near misses in reality should have been hits. Out of those 20 misses there were more horses with a better chance than not. I'm not going to list each horse and give a reason. Have some fun and form your own opinion. · 79 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · I would like a series of races like the old Championship Racing Series for older horses, actually in every division of racing. It would be better in my opinion to have the races all around the country not just in New York. Anyway the idea of a handicap triple crown would not work today since no trainer wants to run with added weight, most of the handicaps today are run with the high weight actually carrying less weight than in weight for age races. Handicaps, with real weights, are a thing of the past. · 156 days ago ·

Miss my Shack. The dirt mile just won't be the same without him!
Which mares he will cover?
How nice would it be to see Shack's big, white blaze working-out in the mornings for a run at the Fall Classics? I sure do miss seeing this Big Boy on the track. Leads me to this thought...if you could load the gate for one race, who would be the 10 horses you'd load. Here's mine: 1. Seattle Slew 2. Swale 3. Ack Ack 4. Kelso 5. Gate Dancer 6. Turkoman 7. Sunday Silence 8. Ferdinand 9. Citation 10. Spectacular Bid. Not Big Red or Man O' War cause I think they were just too tough, and I want it to be a 10 horse dead-heat..
