  • CauseForConcern · A filly that caught my attention, was Honest Lady, who ran a fast closing 2nd to Kona Gold in the '00 BC Sprint. She was past him, just beyond the finish, and he had set a track record at Churchill Downs for 6 furlongs. Check her run out. You will not see her until they are near the finish line, and she was flying. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIM8fQHHiY8 · 132 days ago ·

  • LAZMANNICK · Honest Lady came from a great family. She was a half to Chester House (the 2000 Arlington Million winner), Decarchy a $700K winner and Empire Maker (Belmont winner and top sire, etc.) Earlier in 2000 she finished second in the Met Mile when coming from 8th and last place. · 132 days ago ·

  • Capper · Even though I'm a Drill fan this seems like a hustled move to help him get graded earnings for the Derby run. My Adonis has been pointed for this race for a while, won the local prep and Kelly Breen has had pretty good success in this race with past runners. · 880 days ago ·

Big Drama, last year's Breeders' Cup Sprint winner at Churchill Downs, hopes history repeats itself in Saturday's renewal. The David Fawkes trainee has only run twice since winning the 2010 Sprint.

  • ruhlmann · I also like Jackson Bend in the BCSprint. Hopefully his 0 for 2 record at CD is nothing to worry about. If he runs with that burst like he did in the Forego & Jms Marvin he will be very very tough to beat. There should be plenty of pace to run at, with Euroears & Giant Ryan. · 896 days ago ·

  • JWC8282 · This contest seems like a good one. Lots of money up for grabs. I think I'm going to take to play two selections in the Vosburgh; Big Drama and Trappe Shot. Hopefully I have some winners from that. Then on to the Breeders' Cup!!!!!! · 928 days ago ·

  • arazi · I think this is a pretty easy contest to have a great shot. If you can pick the winner of the First Lady and Breeders' Futurity today, then you get 2 shots to share in $45,000. Not bad. To split the $45,000, it's essentially a double on the Ladies Classic and Mile. I'm not sure why everyone isn't taking a shot... I will. · 920 days ago ·

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. · 926 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? · 924 days ago ·
