There's a G2 in the books! Nice trip and nice win.
Hoping for speed to hold up here, 29/29/8/1347
1st- Lord Nelson 2nd- Indexical 3rd- Home Run Kitten 4th- Dream Saturday
Nyquist is my pick for the Haskell (to the surprise of absolutely nobody), but it is Gun Runner who scares me the most. If Exaggerator flops again at Monmouth, he won't win the Eclipse Award, regardless of who actually hits the wire first. But, as always, I hope everyone come home safely.
After reading some of doug's interviews I think they are seriously considering either the pacific classic or the awesome again. They are 100% bringing him back to Cali after the Haskell and probably don't want to ship again. Especially with what happened to Pharoah last year at the travers. I think if Nyquist wins the Haskell easily he should go in the pacific classic. Same distance as travers- and he has much more to gain by a win there and nothing to lose. In the travers he has everything to lose and nothing to gain by a win there. Nyquist, Dortmund if he goes, beholder, chrome, and melatonin would be a pacific classic for the ages
  • bronzeprincess33 · If he does go in the Pacific Classic, all he has to do is hit the board (as much as I love him, I highly doubt he'll win) in order to keep his position at the best three-year-old colt. And that's if he loses at Monmouth to Gun Runner (who scares me). If he wins the Haskell over Gun Runner fair and square, and Exaggerator gives another Belmont performance (bless his soul; maybe he's tired?), the Eclipse Award will be his. · 2 hours ago

Stay With Me and her dam Miss Finland have been shipped to Japan to be covered by Deep Impact. According to Paul Messara of Arrowfield Stud: "Deep Impact is one of the world's leading sires and it's a rare opportunity to be able to breed to a horse like that. When you are breeding to a stallion like him it is quite an extensive exercise to get them over there, have them bred and send them home so we make sure we send the nice quality mares. The product we're going to get out of those matings will either be stallion prospects or very valuable broodmares."
There is a great book out about him entitled: The Legend of Zippy Chippy: Life Lessons from Horse Racing's Most Lovable Loser by Wiiliam Thomas
In a bit of a roughly run race, Minding draws away from Queen's Trust by about 2 lengths to win the G1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood, her 4th Group 1 win of the season and 6th Group 1 win overall.
Destin's Kentucky Derby was quite good. He was 3rd with 3/16ths to go, and 4th a furlong out. Castellano stopped asking him with 100 yards to go--when he realized he couldn't do better than 6th, and the 7th horse was a few lengths back. He was going to be 6th anyway, but maybe by 5 1/2 instead of 7. He was obviously a bit short, and now may be ready to put in a top effort. Whether that will be good enough to beat Exaggerator remains to be seen. He may finish 3rd, behind Lani and Exaggerator, or 4th with Stradivari or Brody's Cause in the mix.

  • Holy Curlin via Disqus · What's up for the Queen's Plate, any thoughts? Watch a quick replay of the Woodbine Oaks. Fixate your eyes on Crumlin Spirit and her stretch drive of how she repeatedly gets shut off and checks a countless number of times by the favorite filly Gamble's Ghost while she's trying to give run at 25-1 and win and the favorite just missed from winning in that path. Totally should of came down but more importantly if she gets in perhaps she has a chance. She ran like fourth there a few lengths behind. I like Shakhimat. I like R. Attfield and I bet the colt to win The Transylvania at Keeneland. Is there anything that I need to look at or consider that you know of to win or cash some tix? · 31 days ago

4th race at Del Mar saw 2yr.old filly With Honors (Warfront),win in her first start impressively,on the Jimmy Durante turf. Keith Desormeaux is the trainer,and it's rare he has a first time out winner on the grass. So,there's good reason to be optimistic about her.

Oh Frosted. One of my top 10 favorites of the decade. I picked Frosted 2nd in the Wood (Daredevil), 4th in Ky. Derby (Carpe Diem, Materiality, Itsaknockout), 1st in the Belmont, Jim Dandy, and Travers, 3rd in the BC Classic (Honor Code, Tonalist), and of course hands down 1st in the Penn Derby and Met Mile. Of course will forever remember seeing live American Pharoah's sensational 5-championship season, but I will remember Frosted because I want to remember him. I live you Frosted! And hopefully the best is yet to come! Like his adversary American Pharoah (Mucho Macho Man) or my boy Tonalist (Flat Out, Stay Thirsty) may he go out with an unforgettable finale in the BC Classic or Cigar Mile.
1st- Miss Matzoball 2nd- Disco Barbie 3rd- Rumble Doll 4th- Richies Sweetheart
1st- CURALINA 2nd- Carrumba. Kind of like Stellar Wind vs Beholder, except that Joint Return and Sweetgrass are decent horses- far better than any competition of Beholder v. Stellar Wind, and I love both of these two favorites. Curalina and Carrumba should both return in the Personal Ensign. I love Curalina so much I actually has her over Stopchargingmaria in the BC Distaff and Ogden Phipps and she was my 2nd choice in the Acorn behind poor Shook Up.
With the thunder storms predicted all day The Haskell will be interesting with the addition of Exaggerator (Mud Runner) against Gun Runner and Nyquist. Monmouth is known for its fast track and short stretch (990 feet).Mud Runner will have to stay close to the leaders and make his famous stretch run to catch Gun Runner and Nyquist. It will be Gun Runner and Mud Runner at the wire
  • sczen50 · heh... So you like others really thought that that was a dry track Nyquist ran on in the FL Derby? Look again..It had been pouring and it was slush. Hard not to see.. Sure it gives Mud Runner(like Java Gold was) a good advantage but Nyquist loved that slop. He didn't lose the Preakness because of the slop. So--you're saying Gun Runner,hey? W/ Mud Runner at the wire huh? hmm.. I'd love to bet you on that~ I can understand you're going w/ 'Mud' but why Gun Runner?? He's very good granted.. but why over Nyquist? · 15 hours ago
I always liked Gun Runner first for his breeding, Candy Ride, Quiet Giant (Giant Causeway) and the Fappiano line in both the Sire and Dam sides. He had trouble changing leads in the past, but in the Matt Winn he broke the track record for that race. The Haskell will be a great race now that Exaggerator (Mud Runner) is entered and thunder storm are predicted all day Sunday. Go Gun Runner
