  • travel_vic · Hurray George Royal a two time winner here and THIS was the only OTHER major race (grade one) that has produced a dead heat:FIddle Isle and Quicken Tree ( a consumate closer). These long ones are the arenas where heady rides make differences as one only has to look at Olden Times in 1962 · 361 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · Opening day at Santa Anita has always been the start of the new racing year for me and this looks like a good card with a deep Malibu field and the best 3 year old filly My Miss Aurelia in the La Brea. But one thing Santa Anita has to do is get a safe and fair racing surface. Horses that came from off the pace were at a great disadvantage last year, I hope they have figured out a way to make it more fair to all horses , especially with the Breeders Cup there again in 2013. · 478 days ago ·

Smart Ellis is the Joe Btfsplk of Thoroughbred race horses. Bltfsplk is the Al Capp character in Li’l Abner who is the world’s biggest jinx. He walks around with a perpetually dark rain cloud a foot over his head. Once he appears on any scene, dreadfully bad luck befalls anyone in his vicinity. Read More

  • Mary Z. · Why Animal Kingdom returned in the BC Mile. Words from his trainer, Graham Motion; BH 10/2/12 updated 10/6/12: "Coming off the layoff, the Mile just seems very logical for him," said Motion, who captured the John Deere Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT) in 2004 with Better Talk Now and Emirates Airline Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf (gr. IT) with Shared Account in 2010. "He certainly has the turn of foot to handle it. The timing is right for his schedule coming back, and the caliber of horse that he is, you're not going to look for a nice, easy spot. It's a totally different situation than last winter when we ran him in the Gulfstream allowance to get ready for the Dubai World Cup. Going a mile, we feel he should be very fit for this race, and he deserves the opportunity." The Hollywood Turf Cup to be run on December 15th., is at the distance of 1 1/2 miles. Possibly that would have been too long of a wait for Animal Kingdom's return, too long of distance for his first race back, and certainly not as prestigious as the BC Mile. The Hollywood Turf Cup is a grade 2 stakes. · 508 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · Probably because Sky Kingdom is considered the more serious Derby contender at this point. He probably could have done better in the CashCall had the rein not broke, but most probably want to see more from him before they move him up their Derby watch list. · 812 days ago ·
