  • 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. · 214 days ago ·

Sometimes you just have to stick with what works for you, despite logic indicating another choice, and sometimes the best horse on paper just loses.Read More

  • gelded1 · Playing close attention to how the track has been playing the days leading up to the race barring off tracks due to weather is a big part of my handicapping especially when I get down to a couple of contenders that I'm trying to decide on in the race. The best horses don't always win due to poor trip or just bad racing luck but that can't be predicted to happen it just does sometimes and that's the disappointing part when you know you bet the right horse talent -wise for the race but shit happens all the time. · 286 days ago ·

He looked great today!
I have seen all his races; training in florida, racing in new york, too long a layoff, not his best effort.
About to load in the gate for the 9th race at Aqueduct.
Take him off the undefeated watch. Just lost.
Lightly raced Maleeh ran like a seasoned professional in his second start, saving ground on the turn and angling off the rail to launch his stretch run en route to a 2 ¾-length win in Saturday’s $100,000 Fred “Cappy” Capossela, a six-furlong sprint for 3-year-olds at Aqueduct Racetrack. Read More

  • mdracing69 · Itsmyluckyday worked 4f in 48 4/5 Saturday morning at Calder for trainer Eddie Plesa, Jr., his first move since winning the Holy Bull. "It was exactly what I was looking for,” said Plesa later in the morning. “I got him galloping out (five furlongs) in 1:01. He’s right on schedule. He’ll probably work about every seven days, although I might change it up on him one of those times with an easy mile work. I haven’t decided.” · 420 days ago ·

After a months rest, first workout as a 3-yr-old... 4f 49.03 10/27 @ Palm Meadows 01/29/2013. I'm smelling the Hutcheson Stakes for this one.
I'd love to see Tony point this one to the Gotham. Would hate to see him not get a chance to stretch that speed.
  • marylandgq · He's in Palm Meadows training. So my quess is that he'll point to the 7 furlong Hutcheson Stakes. BTW - He TWICE destroyed AMERIGO VESPUCCI, who finished 3rd in the Jerome (Jan. 5th). · 468 days ago ·
