What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Tom Fool...

Could the resurgence of the Handicap Triple save racing?Read More

  • Mike in SB · I would like a series of races like the old Championship Racing Series for older horses, actually in every division of racing. It would be better in my opinion to have the races all around the country not just in New York. Anyway the idea of a handicap triple crown would not work today since no trainer wants to run with added weight, most of the handicaps today are run with the high weight actually carrying less weight than in weight for age races. Handicaps, with real weights, are a thing of the past. · 160 days ago ·

Seabiscuit, Halo, War Relic... Thoroughbreds are not known for their nice and orderly temperaments. Cousin took it a step further. In the first part of his career Cousin showed that he "was a nut, but he could run" as said by Bayard Sharp. Read More

  • jay s. · cocoa. Do me a favor. Next time you're at the library look for a book called "A Higher Call" by Adam Makos. The book is excellent, but I'd like for you to read his introduction. He was a New York kid that loved everything WWII. In jr high he decided to type-out his own newsletter on his home printer and started handing them out. Long-story-short (too late) by the time he was in college his newsletter had grown to a 7,000 subscription magazine. When you read it, replace WWII with horse racing. BTW, the book isn't about the author, it's about a German fighter pilot that took mercy on a shot-to hell American B-17. · 422 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · To answer Cocoa's question: Of the 15 BC races, 4 winners were on the lead, 2 winners were speedy types but not on the lead (within a length at 1/2 mile call), 6 winners took up stalking positions (within 4 lengths at 1/2 mile call), and 3 closed from off the pace (Flotilla was 4 1/2 lengths back, Calidoscopio was 14 lengths back at the 1 mile call in the marathon, and Mizdirection was 8 lengths back). · 460 days ago ·

Tom Fool has always been one of my favorites. Not only a great racehorse, but a great sire as well! Personally, I've always thought he had a pretty face.
