Olympic Glory will join the Al Shaqab stallion roster in 2015 at Haras de Bouquetot in Normandy after signing off his racing career in either the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes or Prix de la Foret.
She's nominated to the Vosburgh. That's a bit ambitious.
Reported from Mark Casse, his plans right now are unknown, is currently training over the dirt at Churchill Downs, if he trains well, he will be pointed to possibly the Breeders Futurity or point to turf stakes somewhere, but, all this depends on how well he trains over the dirt
Very exciting, almost a derby reunion of sorts. I like Chrome to win here with Candy Boy challenging valiantly. I wouldn't be surprised to see Protonico scare the favorites
Going to get one more Turf race before shipping to MD
Peter's Creek is done racing at Suffolk this year. Sore ankle is going to get some rest before heading to MD
Trainer Marty Wolfson says Atreides now to go Indiana Derby rather than Kelso, says he prefers the harder track in Indiana to Belmont Park. Reply
Bayern is the X factor in this race and I am interested to see how it plays out. Will he be given an early lead by Espinoza while Chrome stalks? Will CC be sharp enough off an injury and long layoff to overtake Bayern who can be a monster on an uncontested lead? Or will CC be sharp enough off that layoff to press Bayern throughout the race which could also prove to be disastrous. All depends on which Bayern shows up and if the same California Chrome shows up. If not for those two I like Protonico
I've wondered for a while and am finally asking, why are some European times so much slower than American times? Frankel is considered the greatest horse of all time by a lot of Europeans but his fastest mile was 1:37 1/5 and he ran 1 1/4 in 2:10, slower than an American allowance race. I have heard that some tracks in Europe are uphill, but wouldn't they also get to run down the hill?
  • Mary Z. · I used to wonder the same thing. I don't think they build up outrageous momentum on the downhill parts. Not like the turf sprint at Santa Anita. They tend to go much slower at the start of their races; fast running in the stretch. Turf conditions are probably way more natural than our groomed courses. Usually some degree of softer turf over there, or at least not as firm as many of the turf courses here. Watch many more Euro turf races. You will see how the run over there. You may not even notice the times after a while. · 17 hours ago
  • Northport · As a huge fan of European racing, final times are irrelevant to me. Some of the splits near the end of a race are useful to analyze (as Mary said, Euros go slow then fast, as opposed to Americans going fast then slow), particularly with Frankel, since he quickened pretty incredibly in his races. You will get some American-like final times on days when the ground is extremely hard, but given the damp climates in England and Ireland that doesn't happen a ton. That, paired with the fact that racecourses are built into the natural form of the countryside - with undulations and steep hills · 16 hours ago
does anyone think that Parx may close the #1 gate and move everyone over from the rail?
if tapiture has a shot at the chrome?

Could be a Candy Boy kind of race.
sorry mary but very unlikley
  • Mary Z. · So what? Race is on Saturday. I could change my mind 6 times by then. Also hit reply, gracias. He may benefit from the ones getting too close to the speed. They won't want to let Bayern get away. · 17 hours ago

Both of my horses got the rail in the Derby and Cotillion. I saw a race at Parx and the whole track looked soft, hope not softer by rail.

  • tmallios via Disqus · As of right now i am 50/50. Have to be back in NYC on Sunday. Tough round trip drive to make in 1 day.Especially on the NJ TPKE.. Plus the 2 big races are a bit boring.
