When I first learned that Penny Chenery had created something called the Secretariat Vox Populi Award three years ago, I was thrilled. As a fan myself, I know that horse racing is a sport that can sometimes leave the fan feeling disconnected. I saw this as an excellent opportunity for true fans of t...Read More

The ever popular Saginaw was left off this year's Vox Populi ballot, but here is why you should vote for him via write in.Read More

  • Buckpasser · This is my problem with the award: if you are going to call it Vox Populi, the voice of the people, then it should be exactly that. Instead of having a slate of names decided by a committee with a write in, you should solicit names from the fans. Then take the top five and offer the fans a vote based on those selections. To me if Penny Chenery wants to direct the award to a feel good story like MMM (whom I like very much and this is no criticism of him at all), then call the award the Penny Chenery or similar award and give to whom ever she or her committee wants. If you solicit different opinions, clearly you will get them. If you don't want those opinions, then don't ask for them. · 147 days ago ·

  • ruffianzenyatta · I voted for Mucho Macho Man, but looking back, I think I should have voted for Saginaw. Just because he is not well known, doesn't mean he couldn't make an impact on someone's life. · 146 days ago ·

  • EP Taylor · To bad MMM had such a rough start to the year, between getting sick at Gulfstream, and then a quarter Crack when he shipped north, which forcedthe connections to skip the Foster and run an overnight stakes. A solid return run in the Whitney, and then two fantastic runs at SA to close out the year. Wise Dan will win HOTY and Older male and rightfully so. Just so happy big Mooch got it done though. I am still on cloud 9 from that race · 164 days ago ·

  • lasorgen · Well deserved win for Mucho Macho Man! But why no mention of Goldencents scintillating win in the Dirt Mile? Rafa Bejarano without a doubt had the best trip of the weekend, getting Goldencents into 2nd after breaking from the 12 spot. Really looking forward to seeing that colt in his 4th year... · 162 days ago ·

  • tmallios1 · Buck,like you said,it is a tough game to make money.Let alone survive. If one examones it closer. The leading Eclipse owners have about 3 to 4 million earned.Some of them ,at various venues have over 100 horses in training. At almost $40K a year per horse. Do the math. Some of them do not earn anywhere near the figure i mentioned.That is why i laugh at interviews on TV and in the media.The politically correct things are said,for the love of the game.I know many of the trainers,the ones that get screamed at and have pressures put on them.Threatened they will take the horses away if the performance does not pick up.Does not make them Ogres or bad people.Makes them human,same with all of us in our private lives.You pay for something,you want the maximum return. · 169 days ago ·

This horse is Anazing!! What he has overcome and how he has come back to racing form! WOW!

  • airedale2008 · After what he has overcome, it would be fantastic, ruffianlover, and a great story for the Breeders Cup. Thoroughbred racing would receive plenty of good press with a win from the Baffert trained colt. Personally I’m for Game on Dude earning an Eclipse award this weekend. If Paynter won, I would have a big smile, though, lucky trip or not. · 170 days ago ·
