  • Stagedoorjohnny · Jockeys having a hard time winning the KY Derby? How about trainers as well? Mr. Asmussen (Tapiture) is 0 for 10 or Mr. Pletcher is 1 for 29. Or even Cal-breds...nothing in 51 years. · 33 seconds ago ·

Mr. Speaker is my choice from the #1 Post. He hasn't competed on the poly, but took well to working on it 3/63 on 04-15-2014. Plus you can't go wrong with Shug. Hope to see him at 6/1 or better.
We've all been on both sides of an inquiry or objection. Sometimes it's our horse that caused the trouble and other times our horse was on the receiving end.Read More

  • travel_vic · or BRIS net desribed it Thus: Saez got busy with the right-handed whip and Will Take Charge drifted straight toward the rail and straight into Golden Lad. Jockey Gary Stevens took up on Golden Lad as Revolutionary to his inside leaned in at that exact moment. Will Take Charge continued his inward path to bother Revolutionary a bit before finally hitting the wire to stop the clock in 1:49 2/5 for nine furlongs on Oaklawn Park's fast main track. · 47 minutes ago ·

today's Q : aside from Secretariat & Ruffian, who was the best horse from the 1970's?
There’s a lot of local hopes for a Blackhawks double on Saturday afternoon. Earlier in the day, the Chicago Blackhawks will be facing off against the St. Louis Blues in game 2 of their first round playoff series. Later in the afternoon, a horse with Blackhawks ties will take to the track as Graded S...Read More

  • travel_vic · Don't yet know what this one received at Hot Springs but his energy profile is correct for the Derby distance. Now IF he matched up, and the 9 furlong race stayed down in the 67's % median, he may be a contender. · 1 hour ago ·

One of the greats. Probably the number one stud producing more top champions then any other stud.
i really like this filly- she has great disposition & a great head. her last outing was very impressive, but Awesome Baby also comes off an impressive two turn victory at Sunland.
*I began my career racing exclusively on one coast, and finished it running only on the other coast. *As a three-year-old, I was not a champion although I did split decisions with that year’s champion.Read More

  • travel_vic · One of he biggest monsters I ever saw up close. Was able to see my old pal again at Claiborne in his twenties. DId it all on the front end. Took on all comers, carryied big weight and kept going unpreturbed. Went short long grass or dirt. Even had Cougar II dust off all the major competition for him in New York's Fall handicap series as he got sick and could not attend, and since he had handed Cougar his head out West, it made for a perfect year. Whittinghma often said that this one was he best by far. · 2 hours ago ·
