What the Nation is saying about Dean's Kitten...

Before we look ahead to a new racing season, let's take pause to say good-bye and good luck to those that are leaving the track and moving on to their second careersRead More
Currently stands at Sohna Farm in Haryana, India
Retired today due to injury (bowed tendon). I'll always remember his loss by the closest of margins to Cape Blanco in the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic last year.

  • Capper · I love that Sassy Image race at Calder, it was Silky Sullivan-esque! I can't disagree with any of your selections, but that BC turf mile was pretty good as well. Sounds like you're all in on Mr. Commons & I hope he gives us lots of thrills this summer and a rooting chance against the Europeans in the BC. · 838 days ago ·
  • quillg · Brian you hit a HOME RUN with this list... your recall is amazing. I would add Florida Derby (Dialed In & Shackleford) cuz final 1/16th was heart stopping)) · 833 days ago ·
I like this horse
There were times during his career when I thought Tajaaweed might be more, but I’ve come to the realization that he simply will not come out victorious against the best … not that there’s anything wrong with that. The world needs solid grade three horses, and Tajaaweed is a very good one. Read More
Midday won the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf in '09 and was runner-up in that event last year, but her connections switch gears and shoot for more money in the $3,000,000 BC Turf this time around. The 5-year-old mare has captured seven group/graded events in her illustrious career and has bank...Read More
Day one of the serious Breeders’ Cup handicapping is complete, and have I got a winner for you ... I believe in eight days, we will be adding Sea Moon to this impressive list. Read More

  • orangeman88 · I strongly believe that Midday hangs in the stretch and can never be trusted to take the top spot. St. Nick seems a cut below the others. I too like Sea Moon and Sarafina. How are people treating ATDs poor Judmontte International? Does he get a redo? Midday made him look second class there. · 900 days ago ·
Odds-on favorite Cape Blanco holds off longshot Dean's Kitten to take the 35th running of the Grade 1, $500,000 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic at Belmont Park.Read More
  • medlocke · They had the turf at Belmont today officially listed as "yielding". Which was exactly what the turf was officially listed as at Arlington last month for the G1 Arlington Million. Which I personally found a little ridiculous. Because it was blatantly obvious that both Cape Blanco and Dean's Kitten were dealing with much heavier ground at Belmont today than either of them dealt with at Arlington last month. I sure take my hat off to the race that Dean's Kitten ran in defeat today!! Especially being his first ever career attempt trying 1-1/2, and on such taxing ground besides. But I think it was the class of Cape Blanco that ultimately held on and won the day here. In my mind, there should be no question that with this win in today's G1 Joe Hirsch, Cape Blanco should've surpassed Acclamation in the mind's of the Eclipse voters that will be voting for American Turf HOY. Even if Acclamation wins the G2 Hirsch Turf Championship at Santa Anita on Sunday? I still believe Cape Blanco would have the upper hand in the voting for Turf Champion. Acclamation also has 3 G1 wins this season. But only 2 of his 3 G1 wins came on the turf. Acclamation's win in the G1 Pacific Classic on synthetics should have absolutely no bearing at all in the voting for Turf Champion. Only in the voting for American HOY outright. I think the only way Acclamation can take that away from Cape Blanco now would be to win the G1 BC Turf next month. Which isn't likely, because he's yet to prove that he can win outside of California. In all 3 of Acclamation's G1 win's this season, he's had to ship no further than locally in the state of California. Whereas, Cape Blanco has now shipped to America from Ireland 3 times this season, and is 3 for 3. Having won arguably 3 of the biggest G1 turf stakes in the country from 1-1/4 to 1-1/2. Should Cape Blanco ship back to America from Ireland for a fourth time, and win the G1 BC Turf at Churchill Downs next month? I think he would then have to be in the discussion for every Eclipse Award voter for American HOY outright. TJMO. · 928 days ago ·
  • rossington · Three trips multi-thousand mile trips across the Atlantic from Ireland to America for Cape Blanco, and three wins in three of the biggest G1 turf stakes in the US from 10 to 12f. Cape Blanco's ability to accomplish that feat speaks volumes about his ability at this level. I agree with Medlocke. With his win in Saturday's G1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic. I think Cape Blanco all but sewed up an Eclipse Award for 2011 American Turf Champion at the very least. Should Cape Blanco ship back a fourth time from Ireland to America for the G1 BC Turf, and end up winning that race, too? If that does happen, I think at that point a big and very valid argument could be made for Cape Blanco winning the Eclipse Award for 2011 American HOY, Outright!! Hypothetically speaking, assuming Cape Blanco did win the BC Turf, I can't even think of an American turf horse that's won the G1 Man O' War, Arlington Million, Joe Hirsch, and BC Turf in the same year? Much less one doing it that had to ship all the way from Ireland first to run in those four races. · 928 days ago ·

  • Winplacsho · I haven't been to all the top level tracks, but Arlington is at the top of my list for sure. I made it to the 2002 BC & the Arlington Millions won by Chester House & Marlin. I was there last summer too, but that polytrack turns me off. · 972 days ago ·
  • Eclipse First · Nice job, Scott--I am fortunate to have AP as my home track, and Million weekend is always a highlight --here's hoping Gov. Quinn signs the gambling bill to give us slots and also that the BC comes back again! · 971 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · I love Gio Ponti, he runs his heart out every time. Sometimes it's hard to be a fan and a bettor but when the rains came I felt I didn't need a reversal. Strange to have a bittersweet win as money comes and goes but the horses you love always stay. · 977 days ago ·

There’s going to be a rumble late Saturday afternoon in northwest Chicago. It’s not the Jets versus the Sharks as it was in “West Side Story” – but it is three European-born equine invaders and their seven rivals foaled on American soil that will be “getting it on” in the 29th running of the Grade I...Read More
