Longshot A Toast to You was up to win Saturday’s $100,000 California Flag Handicap by a half length under Mario Gutierrez, providing trainer Peter Miller with his third win of the day as the 4-year-old gelding by Tribal Rule negotiated the 6 ½ furlong hillside turf course in 1:11.88. Read More
Strong Wind has never raced on Santa Anita’s unique downhill turf course at about 6 ½ furlongs, but on paper at least, he should appreciate the added furlong-plus over the five furlong grass sprints he’s been competing in when he runs in the $100,000 California Flag Handicap on Saturday. Read More
Atta Boy Pete, an invader from Northern California piloted by Julien Leparoux, gamely resisted the closing challenge of 3-5 favored Strong Wind to win today’s featured Brookfield Residential Purse at five furlongs over the infield grass course.Read More
From coast to coast, stewards showed extreme consistency in a series of disqualifications.Read More

  • amdaman · I think Nellie's Cashman's DQ was the wrong call. She may have drifted out badly, but the outcome of the race was not impacted. Bad call. I do agree with The Apache's DQ. That was a dirty ride. Soumillon veered his ride in and almost caused a spill at the top of the stretch. He was lucky to be DQ'd only to second. · 323 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · I don't know if Rosie would have lodged an objection if Javier hadn't done so, and I believe we're just going to have to agree to disagree on whether or not it was the correct call. However, from a consistency standpoint, it was the same call made in the other 3 races for the same situation. Whether or not you agree with the call, you have to appreciate the consistency. · 323 days ago ·
Truline Racing’s Sirocco Strike, piloted by Julien Leparoux, fell a neck short of overhauling Distinctiv Passion in the featured $100,690 Green Flash Handicap Wednesday at Del Mar, but was awarded victory when stewards disqualified the original winner. Read More
Favored Freakin Rocket remained undefeated with another easy victory in the $56,194 feature Thursday at Betfair Hollywood Park.Read More

  • zbuilder · More unsolicited suggestions from an alten furtz. If you were to invest $100 a month for the next 40 years into a mutual fund which averaged a 10% return, at the end of 40 years you would have over $630,000. Since 1932, the stock market has averaged 11.1% return, 7% in price appreciation and 4.1% in dividends. What I am getting at is that time is on your side as a young man, but time's a wastin too. Investing at the racetrack is very much the same principle. If you only have $36 to invest, then invest wisely. On just your two or three races you like the best and just bet WPS and not the exotics. Even a $10 show bet on a horse that pays $4.00 will now get you $20 to bet to show on another horse paying $4.00 and suddenly you have a $30 profit. Just an example, not necessarily the way to wager a race. · 702 days ago ·
  • zbuilder · Alten furtz here again. I hit the enter button twice aiming for shift. Again, the point is that time is on your side, all winning horseplayers side. It is much more satisfying to me to walk out of the track as a winner, even small, knowing I made mostly right decisions and I am not beating up on myself. You can still have fun, watching the races, correlating the running of races you don't wager on into what you see in the form to what you see in the race. It eventually all begins to make sense. "My lack of confidence in my handicapping cost me" If you are not sure, if EVERYTHING is not right, if you have not slammed the form shut after looking at the race, knowing who the winner is, then just pass and enjoy. Del Mar is a hard place to leave. · 702 days ago ·
Strong win in the Graduation Stakes!
Strong Wind, a speedy son of Tribal Rule ridden by Kevin Krigger, shook off 3-2 favored Law Dog entering the stretch and went on to score an easy, 4 ¼ length triumph in the featured $100,000 Graduation Stakes for California-bred two-year-olds Wednesday. Read More
