The highly anticipated younger half-brother to Ihtimal and First Victory has broken his maiden on debut! He looks to be a promising colt.
Man that was a terribly disappointing Derby for Creator. Can anyone find a reason for his poor performance that make someone believe he will be a bounce back in the Belmont??
  • triplechrome · With a smaller field he should nod get caught up in the same type traffic jam as in the derby · 22 hours ago
  • Pebbles via Disqus · He could just be a horse like Dunkirk as travel vic suggests that did not have the seasoning. Then again, the race was favoring speed up front and he is a closer... But I still wonder about his pedigree for the Belmont Stakes. These Tapits that have done well at 10-12 furlongs (Tonalist, Frosted) have had bottom stamina. I know Creator has Damascus on the bottom, but I wonder if he is a stayer. · 2 hours ago
Exaggerator has arrived at Belmont and looks like a million dollars.
He should be running in the Belmont Stakes. It seems like it would set up well for him.
To leave out international horses makes this list a bit questionable as well as forgetting some of the truly great ones early in the breed.

I'm hoping he wins the Belmont he has a good chance I think.
  • Mary Z. · I'll admit, I like him. Exaggerator is the all-over best, but this one seems like speed that can last. · 14 hours ago
Materiality had the WRONG energy profile of 10 let alone 12 furlongs. There was no way he was not going to be a pace victim. A colt has to "fit" both the pace of the race AND the distance to be a contender. That colt had neither.
Another late bloomer from this royally bred horse. Today he won the Lone Star Handicap; however, he didn't seem to know how to leave the track, lol! Superb ride from Martin Garcia for great connects - 💙🏇‼️
  • Mary Z. · I noticed that. Not sure what was going on. Glad he won the graded stakes. He cost a fortune :) · 14 hours ago
Gift box & Javier what a team. I love me some candy colts..🐎♥️
Pletch is going to send Strad to the front in the belmont and instruct Johnny V to run measured fractions. That is the way Pletch has always felt was the best way to win the Belmont. It is the way he ran Dunkirk a few years back and he tried the same with Materiality last year but Materiality just was not the horse. His daddy, M D'or had a big race here in the Belmont and I would not count out Strad here.

  • Icelocks · Good point about M D'or Players Klub...I agree that if Stradivari likes the race track like M'Dor, he could be a monster to haul in going down the stretch...because he has impressed me in the way he ran in his first graded stakes against G1 company !!! Therefore, I must use him on top to go all the way and my favorite Jokey Johnny V looking back at the Wire :) Good luck to all !! · 1 day ago
  • Jay Harrison via Disqus · You're all continuing to get sucked into this horse because he ran "fast" at Keeneland against no one, no less. He may have the lead heading into the stretch but will wilt due to not matching up class wise to the more classier competition. · 15 hours ago

QUOTE: "Stradivari is the perfect example of a horse that can run fast against allowance company but when moved up in class can't replicate that same performance." AFTER the fact rubbish, based upon gross sample error. If this animal did it THREE times or more against a significant faster pace of race, THEN this statement MIGHT have some merit, otherwise it is fiction. Horses have NO IDEA the man made class they run against: they simply run versus the PACE which is CLASSLESS.
Not disappointing today. Cyrus Alexander wins the Lone Star Handicap.
impressive win back! love this colt.
  • MaryZinke via Disqus · I wish you could have named him, but it was a nice win. · 16 hours ago
Yeah, have to wonder the same thing as everyone else here. Where is Seabiscuit? War Admiral is 21, Seabiscuit should be at least in the top 25.
I'm brattily going w/speed--they're all speed? Rocket Time. The shipper has been too disappointing, but GL to him of course.
Richies Sweetheart wins the Honor The Hero in gate to wire fashion.
Former jockey Joseph O'Brien, who recently retired from riding due to difficulty controlling his weight, revealed to the Racing Post web-site today that he expects to receive to his training licence this week and expects to have his first runners in his own name by next Monday.
  • jonquil · Er...okay? How's this going to work out? Is he going to get some of the Coolmore castoffs? · 17 hours ago
I have so much riding on this horse right now. I bred my Malibu Moon mare to Big Brown and she is due February. I also picked up an Elusive Quality mare and bred her to Brown as well. She is due in March. I'm thrilled to see Dortmund back but where is Coach Inge?
  • Goblin · Coach Inge has apparently been retired. On CI's HRN page, another poster says the Pletcher Stable responded to an e-mail with that info. · 18 hours ago
