Greetings folks! It’s been a while and I’m glad to be back. Yes, the last blog entry was from the Breeders’ Cup and it took so much out of me that I didn’t have the energy to write until now! Read More

In his first work since winning the Grade 1 TwinSpires.com Wood Memorial, Wicked Strong breezed a solid half-mile in 49.62 seconds this morning over the Belmont Park training track in preparation for his upcoming role as one of the favorites for the May 3 Kentucky Derby.Read More
He's been beaten by Constitution and Cairo Prince. Does Wicked Strong have what it takes to turn the tables in the 2014 Kentucky Derby?Read More

  • johnsnare · wiked Strong has a lot of distance in his pedigree. Looks like the 2014 derby will have a lot of front end runners, and a few with distance porblems. a horse that is comfortable coming off the pace, should have a distinct advantage. laying off the pace should have · 16 days ago ·
  • thepuresilverband@yahoo.com · Wicked Strong with breed Chrismatic of trainer Wayne Lukas who had won the Derby and 2nd with Chrismatic's stable mate "cat Theif" How many trainers have won 1st & 2nd in the kentucky Derby. (Baffert must be in envy). Later on Breeders Cup 3 Mill Classic, I bet a $5 Bet on Cat Theif & BudRoyal which got me over $3,000! Just a $2 exacta was over $1,000!! I like the breeding and both Chrismatic & Cat Theif had the fastest both almost record speed Beyers! Dont Discount Wicked Strong! · 7 days ago ·

Wicked Strong threw his hat into the Kentucky Derby 2014 ring with a sharp late running victory in the Wood Memorial. Wicked Strong, 3rd in the G2 Remsen as a juvenile, put his ugly Gulfstream Park form behind him, and he is not the first closer to loathe the Gulf only to reverse form on fair footin...Read More
Now let's get back to the real topic of the day...this years Derby. Enough with the past. This is a great time of year for us Racing fans.

  • https://www.facebook.com/john.karczewski.39 · Also AllenJoyner my appologies. I like reading your posts and respect your opinion but I had to take a stab at you for the Secretariat thing. No hard feelings hopefully was all in fun · 12 days ago ·
  • AllenJoyner · No problem John K....I enjoy reading your's too. Looking forward to tomorrows last two G-1 preps. Then it's 3 weeks of predictions! LOL · 12 days ago ·
No problem Exterminator. I have those kind of days too! I knew with a name like that you must be OK. I understand if you disagree with my view of the greatest horse ever or the list itself. There were so many great horses. I agree with the first 30 names on the greatest of all time list, although I would change the order somewhat. But after that, you get horses that just don't belong anywhere near the rating they have now.

Thanks, Sully!
Thanks, Sully!
Before anyone thinks I'm too critical of old Sec, I like to point out that I rooted for him throughout his career, and being at Belmont on June 9th, 1973, with great seats (got there early) I witnessed live one of the greatest performances ever by a thoroughbred. He was truly in another zone during that Triple Crown.
Exterminator: Instead of debating the facts, you regress to name calling. What a shame you soil the great gelding's name! LOL You have just made it quite clear I can't take you seriously nor remark to your future comments if you do it again.
  • Exterminator · I have the greatest respect for the great weight carriers, hence my screen name Exterminator. My day has gone sour and rather than debating I condensed it into one (rather rude) sentence.I meant simply that I do not agree with you. No need to overreact. · 12 days ago ·

  • AllenJoyner · john.karczewski: Secretariat lost 4 races, including to Onion at equal weights and was absolutely destroyed by Prove Out by 5 1/2 lengths while carrying SEVEN POUNDS LESS WEIGHT! (Both trained by the great Allen Jerkens). Sec might have been the best ever for the the 5 week span of the Triple Crown, I agree with that, but was beatable at times other than that. I voted him an 8 and Man'O War a 10 because I believe their positions should be reversed, which the were. I believe that the best way to rate all the greats is to see how many other great horses they beat over their career while spotting weight. The level of the competition. If that is the criteria, then Kelso is the greatest ever for no other horse beat as many great/very good horses as the 5 time HOTY did while spotting gobs of weight and setting NINE track records including a World Record that still stands to this day. Check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelso_(horse) As far as rating Wicked Strong a "10", that was in the 3 yr old list, not best of all time. So that criticism is foolish. Look at some of the names in the best of all time and you have to chuckle. (Untapable (who) #35 · 12 days ago ·

Secretariat lost four races including to Onion at equal weights and to Prove Out by 5 1/2 lengths while carrying SEVEN POUNDS LESS. Sec might of been the greatest for the 5 weeks of the Triple Crown, I agree with that But he was beatable other times. I truly believe the criteria for which horse is the best depends on the ability to spot weight and the level of the competition. Surely 5 time HOTY Kelso is then the best of all time. No other horse beat so many great or very good horses as did the mighty Kelso while spotting weight and a lot of it most of the time. It reads like a who's who of much of the 1960's.
