  • Medlocke · When was it decided that Unbridled Belle was going to race again? I thought after her victory in the Turn Back The Alarm Clock Stakes that she was to be retired. I'm not complaining, I look forward to seeing her and Swift Temper go after each other in the Falls City, I just didn't know that she was even being considered for the race. · 1605 days ago ·
This year's Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic (G1) is shaping up to be a repeat of 2008, with most of the same cast and crew re-opposing reigning champion ZENYATTA (Street Cry [Ire]). One really interesting contender has been retired, and another major player is now only 50-50 for the 1 1/8-mile event.Read More
The Polytrack was fast as always. Back on the turf, and the condition was listed as soft. Seven races run on synthetic, and only one wire job as off the pace types scored six times. Stalkers and closers best on the sod. Read More
Circle the date Oct. 4 on your calendar. Your assignment is to pray for rain in France - enough to turn the Longchamp turf course soft. The softer the better. Yes, it is a selfish request, as no one wants to see thousands of dejected European racing fans, but considering what a soft course that day ...Read More

  • GBeret · I'm just curious if Rachael Alexandra's connections, given Unbridled Belle's success at Delaware Park and having won the Delaware Handicap before, plus the 1/1-4 mile distance of the race decided on entering her in the Haskell Invitational because of it being 1/1-8? Maybe they feel like she can beat the colts easier at 1/1-8 than she could beat Unbridled Belle at Delaware Park at 1/1-4. · 1734 days ago ·
  • cigar · I think Monmouth fits into her style way more than the Del. Cap, plus I'm not sure R.A. is going to be quite as effective going 10 furlongs. If the Preakness was another 16th of a mile longer, it's a totally different landscape right now. · 1733 days ago ·
