  • amino998 · Median price up 12%, average up double that. Looks like the success of last year’s toppers Corfu, Havana and Diamond Bachelor was good for business. · 47 days ago ·

Malibu Moon will stand for $95,000 in 2014, up from $70,000. Other new Spendthrift fees include Awesome Patriot ($3,500), Into Mischief ($20,000), Jimmy Creed ($12,000), Liaison ($10,000), Tizway ($15,000), etc.
  • rafirox · Into Mischief has a somewhat modest price- considering his success- including Goldencents in his first crop. I was not aware Jimmy Creed reitred. · 173 days ago ·

  • DAVIDM9999 · I do hope Corfu stays sound while continuing to learn and develop. I saw him at SAR in his heavily backed debut. I thought he was beat when a Clement horse made a bold run at him. I bet Wired Bryan on top in the exacta and was again sure he was going to yield late. Corfu has some gameness. I love your race description especially the use of “flared nostril”. That described the closeness perfectly. · 249 days ago ·

While it was a pair of sharp first-timers in Conquest Two Step and Jake’s Magic Hat who looked very good as they cruised to victory today in Louisville, and New York, don’t look past the two horses who finished full of run to be second, Ride On Curlin and None Like Nolan.

  • travel_vic · If one recalls the Triple Crown winners, and a few that just missed: these race hardly took a thing out of them. THey were monsters eating holes in their feed tubs and almost kickly down the stalls between races. IF, for no other reason, the Derby winner IS showing many of the signs of those who did hit the triple or who just missed. · 339 days ago ·

Malibu Moon has produced some nice three year olds this year (Orb, Freedom Child, Kauai Katie, Magical Moon, Cue the Moon, etc.)
Trainer Shug McGaughey and Jockey Joel Rosario combined to win their first Kentucky Derby when the 5-1 favorite Orb closed from a distant 16th place over the sloppy Churchill Downs track to take the Run for the Roses. Read More

  • travel_vic · I don't like the polycrap, it smells, gums up tails and throats etc., BUT since it is the surface I see everyday, I play it....I have a theory that the nature of a polytrack surface has to do MORE with the daily fluctuation in temperature and the drainage of the cushion MORE than the top surface itself, AND when it is close to wearing out, the front end bias is extraordinary.......Since about 10 tons of Jelly cord has been added here over the last two weeks, speed should NOT be to big a factor this weekend at Woodbine where just about all the races will be sprints. · 368 days ago ·

As I go through and look at the potential contenders for the Derby and the Oaks and their pedigrees, it gets me thinking – if money wasn’t an issue and I owned a mare, which sire would I have her bred to?Read More
  • cocoa2 · Speightstown seems to be based off his wives, as far as distance goes. Haynesfield was out of a distance running mare while Speightstown's sprinters are usually out of sprinters. He is a good pick for any mare, but if you're looking for a colt who wants 10f and the mommy only wanted 8f, I think Hat Trick or Street Cry would be your man. · 373 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · "Orb won, but Violence ran a better race. adaman" Along with Danni's eplanation I agree... I don't know exactly if this was the point in time that Violence became hurt, but in the stretch he pretty much stopped running, then when challenged he came on again, this I've seen many times in many races, but is me or was his stride different at that point? · 418 days ago ·
