What the Nation is saying about Shrewd Operator...

My name is Brian Zipse, and I support Illinois racing. There I said it, and you know what? I’m proud of it. While I didn’t make it down to Fairmount Park this year (it’s nearly a five-hour drive,) I did have the pleasure of frequenting two fine and very different racetracks in Arlington Park and Haw...Read More

  • BrianZipse · Gotta love the Illinois breds! No Giant Oak, but still a bunch of nice horses ... looking for Dundalk Dust to make some more noise nationally this year, and I still think Seans Silverdancer is one to watch out for. I wish I was there with you, Chris! · 1112 days ago ·
  • christysontheweb · I'm late to the party here...but this preview if I remember right has you picking just about every single winner of the day in the 6 races you cover here. I'm no handicapper extraordinaire or anything but that's some pretty solid cappin' my friend! Way to hit it out of the park (thought this fit well for todays photo excursion I got to go on through the text line!) ;) · 1109 days ago ·

Illinois champions Dundalk Dust and River Bear are prominent among the 56 horses who passed the entry box Wednesday for the six $100,000-added stakes races that comprise the 12th annual Prairie State Festival to be held Saturday, June 25, at Arlington Park.         ...Read More
