  • Stagedoorjohnny · Jockeys having a hard time winning the KY Derby? How about trainers as well? Mr. Asmussen (Tapiture) is 0 for 10 or Mr. Pletcher is 1 for 29. Or even Cal-breds...nothing in 51 years. · 7 hours ago ·
  • AndyScoggin · Stagedoorjohnny, I did the trainer article a few weeks ago and yes, it is just as hard for trainers! · 1 hour ago ·

  • icyhotboo · When they say they incorporate pace into their speed figures, and their top two speed figures for 2013 are given to a horse running loose on the lead, what's to wonder about? · 49 days ago ·

  • AndyScoggin · That just shows how tough it is to actually get the horse you want with all the outs and RNAs. It will be fun to follow your picks to see how they run. I look forward to seeing you again at BC13! · 205 days ago ·
  • CauseForConcern · Laurie, I have not been one to anticipate yearling sales in the past, but your article drew some interest. I was disappointed in the early retirement of Majesticperfection. He had beaten the eventual BC Sprint Champ, Big Drama, with ease, prior to his retirement due to injury. He was bought by Airdrie Stables, and, I think, this might be his first crop. Did you, by chance, spot any offspring of his at this sale? · 205 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · Races are the result of the sum total of what happens from the time they load until they hit the wire...This colt was only one of FOUR in that entire field that qualified on the energy requirments of being 67.2 to 67.8 in medium energy...Suprising but true · 275 days ago ·

  • Dressage3295 · Hard to judge with yearlings. They are such awkward, gangly things. The most beautiful, gorgeous horse I've ever known (mare) was one of the unappealing yearlings I have ever seen. · 276 days ago ·

Does anyone know anything about Super Saver's half brother Superfection, a 3yo Medaglia D'Oro colt bought for $1.2 million at the Saratoga sale? I haven't heard anything.
In the past 10 years Super Saver in the only Kentucky Derby winner (excluding Barbaro for obvious reasons) to not end up in the money for the Preakness. I have a hard time seeing that pattern broken. Good luck to orb, and hopefully he'll move on to the Belmont for one heck of a race. Orb, WTC, Goldencents. Sorry, but I feel departig is horribly overclassed here.
While doing our analysis for the Kentucky Derby Super Screener, we came upon some interesting insights centered on the role of energy distribution profiles (running styles) and their impact on the outcome of the top four Kentucky Derby finishers.Read More

  • travel_vic · that 1st fraction for fast shoule be 24 2/5 not 26 2/5 · 357 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · Postional analysis would have stated that Giacomo was LATE and it was well known the the 3rd place colt, Afleet Alex was much later, Fusaichi, Charismatic, Funny CIde, War Emblem, Super Saver, Smarty Jones, Monarchos all had the SAME average prep % medians and some of the ridiculous LATE ones like Pyro, Sweetnorthernsaint, were too too late as were those too early like Bellamy Road, Lion Heart and Hard Spun...To late and too early for the WIN, now Barbaro was all over the map and the Brown frankencolt was high at 67.8 -to 68.9, but just barely · 357 days ago ·

  • charliep · The San Felipe is not at all a good indicator of success in the kentucky Derby. In the last 25 years, only 2 winners have won the Derby, those being Sunday Silence (who won the Santa Anita Derby) and Fusiachi Pegausus (who won the Wood). Alysheba ran 2nd in the 1987 San Felipe to Chart The Stars. · 402 days ago ·
  • charliep · The 3rd place finisher in the Bredders Cup Juvenile should get AT LEAST as many points as the horse that wins the San Felipe or the Tampa Bay Derby. We're talking about a Grade 1 champioship race versus a couple of Grade 2 races, one of which (Tampa Derby) should be a Grade 3. · 402 days ago ·

  • buds · Like all other races, if Verrazano is best on that day he will win, itdoesnt matter if they run under sea level or at mile high stadium. Pletcher has a tough situation, he needs to get points for all 10 of his TC nominated horses, without knocking himself out of the field. · 424 days ago ·

  • Armada · The image used for this article fits very well with Animal Kingdom, Muchu Macho Man, and Shackleford all there. All whom have done so well since that picture was taken. And of course you cant discount Nehro, whom we will hopefully see next year. All top four finishers. I think it is a much stronger crop than I did back then. · 503 days ago ·
  • DeltaT · I think with the new Kentucy Derby point system we will see a more often raced horse winning the Derby. At the same time we also may see points chasing/shipping more this Derby trail too with smaller barns and shallower pocket owners giving way to the bigger better funded connections. · 494 days ago ·

From 1987 to 2011, the average winning Kentucky Derby Beyer was 109. Until 2009, it was really a given that the winner had to get into that range. No more. Once is an aberration. Four times is a pattern. Mine That Bird got a 105 when he won in 2009 by 6 3/4 lengths. Which means the rest of them ran ...Read More

Supersaver had a colt. What did they name that colt?

  • bzbillzack · I think it is kind and generous of Mr. Casner and Winstar to take care of retired racehorses the way they do! It is only morally right for a horse that has given his ALL for his owner's satisfaction, that the owner should reciprocate and do his or her best by the horse!!! · 769 days ago ·
