What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Valid...

  • Jay S. · triple_double, I couldn't see the race but could see the race details. Valid laid a valid spanking on them. Thanks. · 145 days ago ·

Fantastic today! Could be a major contender this winter!

  • travel_vic · Final time: akin to trying to understand a murder mystery by only reading the last chapter....Silly. · 414 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · So many final times were buoyed up by TEPID fractions and many a slower time was the result of enormous earlier battles overcome....Final time? IT means zip standing alone. · 414 days ago ·
There are three (3) Derby prep races on Saturday... The Withers @ Aqueduct, Robert B. Lewis @ Santa Anita and Sam F. Davis @ Tampa Downs. All 3 are graded, carry a purse of $200k and run at 1 1/16 miles, yet only 2 out of 3 award the all important "Derby Points". Read More

  • icyhotboo · "I agree 100% about picking & choosing your spots, but as a service to HRN readers, I provide my opinions on Derby preps as well as MD races. To think that in every one of those races, my opinion MUST NOT be the M/L favorite is insane."Gary Quill/Yes, your position is much different than someone making a wager only for themselves. As you stated you have other considerations which would seem apparent, but obviosly there not. After a while you'll get used to having to explain what should be an easy assumption. I'm a little tired so I didn't look at all your plays but, your selection and wagering structure on the SAM F. DAVIS was something I especially liked. Hope you don't mind, but if you did, or were to wager on that race privately (SAM F. DAVIS) without regard to your article, would you have included the superfecta? Anyway nice job. I'll keep you on my radar. · 438 days ago ·
  • marylandgq · @icyhotboo; To answer your question, YES. I play what I post, so the Sam Davis play was a nice hit. As far as SUPERFECTA's, I don't play them.... never ever! Just not my style, but thanks for pointing out that I should have had the SUPER based on the horses used in my TRI. · 434 days ago ·
He hit his nose pretty hard at the start- Don't know that he would have been a real player, but the way he bounced back I felt bad for him.
There are a total of 2,261 points available in all of the qualifying races on the Road to the Kentucky Derby. With just three months until the first Saturday in May, only 238 of those points have been won. Read More

  • goblin · @george.obrien.3557, The horses who would not have made the Derby field last year were Liaison, Done Talking, and Trinniberg according to this Thoroughbred Times article. This information is located in the very last paragraph, but there is much more to the article, including points earned by past Derby winners over the last 15 years. http://www.thoroughbredtimes.com/racing-news/2012/06/14/points-based-system-will-determine-kentucky-derby-field.aspx · 442 days ago ·
  • Sully · Loving me some Long River in the Withers. Think we may see this one continue on the Derby trail down the road. · 442 days ago ·
