  • DeadHeat · annmatt, HDG could get 10f plenty fine, and I'm sorry, BL was not even close to a shoe in after her last race, and would not have been because of her two losses prior. FO who won at 10f finished behind HDG in the Classic, and I heard people just yelling about the fact that with one extra furlong he would catch her...how did that work? HDG does not seem to run her best over Churchill. She did not have an overly impressive work over the track this year and still finished well. Trying to say what could have been will drive anyone mad. BL is a great horse, but did not have it this season plain and simple. HDG should not get a minus becase her two losses to BL at 10f were by a neck and a whisker. You don't take off because she beat her at a shorter distance. If you do that then you might as well take off BL for beating her at a distance longer than 9f. The score was 1-1, even. It goes to the horse who did the most, Grace. · 971 days ago ·

  • gocashking · Amazombie, by finishing the year with big wins in the Ancient Title and BC Sprint is a no brainer for the Sprint Champion Eclipse. It won't even be close. There's no way 7F and 8F wins will be rated higher than those two wins at the "traditional" sprint distance of 6F. Caling Flashpoint "brilliant" is also a bit of a stretch, I think. · 969 days ago ·

Don’t look now, but it’s that time…no, not Halloween, that is over. No, Not Thanksgiving, we still have a few more weeks to go. People, its Breeders Cup time!!! That means world class racing, big time rivalries, dynamic performance, and best of all handicapping galore for bettors! Read More

Everyone is talking about how the 1 mile distance suits Jackson Bend perfectly, which I think is right, but can't the same case been made for Trappe Shot? 2 turns isn't quite his game, looks like he wants a little more ground in his sprints & he has more tactical speed than Jackson Bend. If he brings his "A" game, I think its going to be tough for anyone to run him down.
After weeks of consideration, the connections of Rattlesnake Bridge are "likely" to pre-enter the 3-year-old in the Breeders' Cup Classic, trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said Sunday. On Saturday, Rattlesnake Bridge breezed four furlongs in 48.43 seconds, .01 seconds faster than Trappe Shot. Both colts ar...Read More

I was all prepared to write that there are simply too many prep races today. I was going to say, whether it is for the Kentucky Derby or the Breeders’ Cup, the proliferation of prep races, spread out over numerous racetracks, and all occurring at virtually the same time, is not for the overall good ...Read More

  • LAZMANNICK · I think that the concept of Super Saturday is great. It always has been. I was really looking forward to the day, but came away feeling kind of empty as if to ask the question, this is it? One concern is that the top level talent is spread very thin. The Beldame with five fillies, the favorite and one with a possible upset chance, and others that didn’t belong including LAT. Not much suspense. The Kelso scratched down to four entrants. There was possibly more suspense in wondering if Mo would move forward from the King Bishop and some suspense with J Bend because that one is an improving sort. Mo definitely was the highlight of the day. The Turf Classic maybe gave American Turf racing a bit of a shot in the arm. Cape Blanco was certainly all out to beat Dean’s Kitten and yet that one wasn’t all that far behind him when third in the Million. The Flower Bowl was a romp for Stacelita with the others all running for second money. The Vosburgh was the best race on the card in terms of depth of talent with some good sprinters and yet Giant Ryan dominated. Maybe the trouble at the start where Euroears and Apriority were taken out made it easier for him. What’s up with Trappe Shot? The JCGC was an extremely weak field for such a revered race. No G1 wins in a so called open G1 race. Flat Out’s first G1 win was dominant IMO. Stay Thirsty was a bust against older on a track he ran well on in the Belmont. Super Saturday used to be just that, but not anymore I’m afraid. · 1011 days ago ·

  • annmatt · I loved Super Saturday, followed by the Arc races on Super Sunday morning and then a few lesser races Sunday afternoon! But this was my first such Super weekend! I came up with my own version of “speed watching” wall-to-wall races. I discovered how to watch all of this action without getting overwhelmed. With a little organization and a couple of online services, it was a snap. After experiencing racing online, I actually prefer it to the slower pace of watching on national television primarily because I can tailor the viewing experience to my own tastes and pace! This type of action has to appeal to younger fans, I would think, since their attention span is about 20 seconds! Once all the services get up to speed with HD, I think watching horse racing online is the best way to experience the sport. Am I the last one to know this and do others "speed watch" the races this way? Am I weird? · 1009 days ago ·

Giant Ryan had won five straight races – including the Grade 2 Smile Sprint Handicap, a “Win and You’re In” race for the Breeders’ Cup Sprint – but that didn’t command him much respect heading into the Grade 1, $350,000 Vosburgh Invitational Stakes at Belmont Park.   Sent off at odds of 12-1 in...Read More
