Violence.
Every year it seems here lately many of Pletcher's lightly raced high $$$ stable drops off the derby trail because of injury. Yeah some it is probably just chance but still this new "lightly raced" strategy has to also be a factor. A bigtime quality horse should not be making his 3rd or 4th career start in the KD.
  • Mike Relva via Disqus · So you noticed it also, regarding Pletchers horses always seeming to fall by the wayside? lol · 17 minutes ago
Great field here. Tomorrow is going to be out of control!
s.b. would win the big cap with dortmond in the saddle.................
That is why i said in all of my posts.........If he stays healthy!!!!!!!!!!! When horses run that fast and that early. The question is always ,will they be able to absorb the stress. Hopefully he will be back. To me ,this was the most exciting 3yo to come along in about the last 5 years.

I hate this part of the TC preps. Every day something seems to happen. Sorry Khozan is out
  • Mike Relva via Disqus · Me also,but Pletcher always manages to squander more talent,one way or another. He never fails. · 58 minutes ago
yea i guess your right....
Half brother to texas red, i think he could be in the derby picture too
I read a couple of weeks ago that he was having troube
this is going to be a blow out! thank god there are alot of nice races this weekend,looking foward to see wicked strong comeback race,was on a nice roll before he got hurt! and that beast of a colt dortmond man hes huge
Nathan back where he belongs in a more suitable distance. Field is tough,but multi speeds in the race work to his advantage.
  • amino998 · Aloha, Rudy, but before you go, what's up with the 1 recorded work in the last month??? · 1 day ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · Well Nathan, with Khozan on the shelf. This is now the only 3yo i care about winning. The Derby just became a race to bet again for me. I think King Tut is now much the best of the remaining contestants. But bottom line,it will be about health. But since we have no crystal ball about that. Just going by horse. He stands out · 2 hours ago
Khozan goes down, but Materiality comes to take his place.
My picks: 1st-Sir Fever 2nd-Mubtaahij 3rd-Ajwad 4th-Tashbeeh.

HRTV staff were notified earlier on Friday that this will be the network's last day of programming with on-air hosts. No worr yet on what will happen to staff and crew. According to DRF'S Steve Andersen.
  • Jbyrnes1 · Also from Steve Andersen, Some HRTV personnel are expected to join the TVG network in coming weeks, according to source. TVG acquired HRTV on Feb. 18. · 4 hours ago
  • Goblin · Their (HRTV) website shows no programming for Aqueduct or Santa Anita for tomorrow. Guess I can watch the San Felipe at Calracing.com, but this is awful for those of us who cannot get TVG. · 3 hours ago
Whats going on with this horse?Four Furlongs 52:60 He isn't ready
Ive been waiting for her name to show up on here. This has been known for over a month now. She even has her own facebook page you can check for updates. I provided the link long time ago on Chromes page. She was named after a little girl (fan) that the Coburn's met at the Preakness last year named Hope.
  • jonquil · If they're interested in increasing the sparkle-load of any of their photos there's this site called Blingee. More sparkles, less work. I'm not necessarily recommending it, but it did cross my mind. She looks like a really nice filly. :) Lovely photos and cute name, too. · 3 hours ago
Trainer Todd Pletcher tells DRF'S Mike Welsch that the undefeated Khozan is off the Derby trail after coming back from a routine gallop at Palm Beach Downs on Friday off in his right hind ankle. "We've sent him to Rood and Riddle, I'm waiting for Dr. Bramlage's(Larry) opinion on Monday," said Pletcher.  According to DRF
  • Goblin · Al Shaqab Racing is not having a good day! Toast of NY is out of the DWC, and now Khozan is off the Derby trail. Hope both colts recover and return to the track. · 3 hours ago
I wish he wasn't owned by Jim Rome... Then I could actually root for him. I like the horse, but Jim Rome is a jerk.

  • slewcrew7778 · That's too bad... Some missed out on Slew and Bid as well for the same reason. They make it about people and not about the horses. · 11 hours ago
  • lotus118 · Good news, Rome only owns a small share of Shared Belief. The major share owner is never mentioned because he's not famous. Go ahead and root for the Boy. · 3 hours ago
They also have another full sister, and Love the Chase is prego to Lucky Pulpit as we speak, there hoping for another colt.
This horse actually deserves the hype that Khozan is getting. He ran a little wide, was up with a good pace, visually showed some explosive kick at the top of the stretch and finishes strong. Good time as well. I think his race today is more impressive than anything Khozan has run, my pick to won the Florida Derby if Upstart does not race in it.
