Csaba has compiled an enviable resume during his three years of racing, amassing seven stakes wins and $571,480 in purse earnings. His trainer couldn’t ask for more.Nevertheless, Phil Gleaves suspects that the best may be yet to come from the 5-year-old son of Kitten’s Joy. Read More

  • Mike in SB · It is interesting that today it is usually miler types that are 2 year old champions, I know there are exceptions, Lookin at Lucky for example, but still most of the top 2 year olds in this century have been milers. Contrast this to the champions from the 1970's almost all had great success stretching out to classic distances as 3 year olds. I hope Shanghai Bobby is starting a good run of races but this looks like a pretty tough race. He will have to be ready and run well to win. · 211 days ago ·

I'm very interested to see which spot Cibelli ultimately settles on: the G3 Gallant Bob against a full field or the Aljamin against Shanghai Bobby.

  • Floridaf · It sounded like he the Trippi was supposed to springboard him to the Woody Stephens, but his Trippi run was a weird one. He was up close at one point, then was eased to the back of the field, was way wide coming out of the turn like he was completely out of contention, and then re-rallied to get the show. My best guess is that he's getting a break. Maybe his breathing issues weren't completely fixed. Here's the replay of that race: http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/race/USA/BEL/2013/4/26/3/trippi-s · 298 days ago ·
