Keen Ice might not be the Greatest race horse ever, but lets look at only some facts. 1. He is the only horse to defeat our triple crown champion. (yes there was a speed duel, but Keen Ice proved that he is a grade 1 horse...cannot be argued) 2. The last 2 races were at tracks that are historically tough on closers. 3. His breeding clearly suggests that his best race is yet to come. (Almost every horse with Kris S in the pedigree got better with age....Rock Hard Ten and Zenyatta to name a couple) A trainer does over a few dozen things to prepare a horse for a race. This includes "prep races". It is hard for any normal human being to understand that a trainer isn't "trying" to win a $500,000 race. If you take into account that it is preparation for a 1,000,000, 2,000,000, 5,000,000 or 10,000,000 race, it becomes easier to understand. A racehorse does his/her hardest running during 2 circumstances. 1. A horse is trying to pass, and must be fought off 2. The horse is using all his/her power to pass another horse During these 2 moments, the absolute most wear and tear occurs, which takes recovery time. Anybody who thinks that Dale Romans doesn't know what he is doing....... well if Keen Ice remains healthy, you will soon understand
  • Ross via Disqus · I almost feel bad for people who'll keep betting on the horse hoping that "That would be the race he finally wins" when they know the horse is 2-14 and needs severe pace collapse to win and yet bet on him due to his sire or his trainer or his win against AP. As soon as I saw him get bet odds on last Saturday, the highest I put him in my super was 3rd, which was even a waste of money after the fact. So please, keep betting him down so we get better odds on better horses. · 1 day ago
  • Ferrisjso26 · Yeh he's a G1 horse and when he's got a long distance a fast pace and a good trip he can do literally anything and even without these things usually is closing. However he simply can't outrun other great horses unless they're exhausted. KI will win some big money this year he doesn't need to win to do that (especially at Dubai cough cough CC) Dale Romans knows what he's doing but he can't make the horse something he's not. KI can run forever he simply can't outrun fast G1 fields. · 1 hour ago
Come on Exaggerator & take it to the champ. I know you can give him a run for his money at least.
Scheduled to return to the worktab on Tuesday (2/16)
BREAKING NEWS: Gift Box, 3rd place finisher in the Remsen behind Mohaymen, will miss the Risen Star next week after he missed a workout due to a slight cough, no word yet on how serious it is, but Chad Brown says that he could be rerouted to the Gotham in March or the Tampa Bay Derby, but too soon to tell.
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · which really means he's off the serious Derby trail path. · 12 hours ago
Why is Cape Speed ranked #11. He shouldn't even be on this list.
Calculator is back!! He has been entered in a 7 furlong allowance race this Saturday at Santa Anita, race 7.
Ahmed Zayat announces that the very first mare to visit American Pharoah in the coming days will be Untouched Talent, the dam of G1 winner Bodemeister, who ironically was raced by Ahmed Zayat.
Nyquist easily at 7F
In all honesty, Songbird would be my Derby pick as of now by a clear margin with Mohaymen as the best chance for colts this year, but I highly doubt the Derby Point System will allow them to change schedule!
Outwork, Uncle Mo's first winner on track, will return Saturday in an allowance race at Tampa Bay Downs in an allowance race.
American Dubai and Get Jets are also cross entered into the 8th race this Saturday Feb13th. It is an Allowance mile and 1/16th for 3yolds at Oaklawn Park
What a performance!
Nyquist: 22 and change ... 22 and change.... goodbye to the rest of the field.

I can't wait to see if Nyquist or Exaggerator wins. I was talking to someone who thinks Exaggerator is better, but I personally like Nyquist. Who do you think will win?

  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · at 7f its a no brainer Nyquist is the better horse and I don't think he'll have to work hard either. Longer, we'll have to wait to find out how they've improved from 2 to 3. · 18 hours ago
This is the one they have been talking about. Definitely the biggest turf filly prospect out there
Dortmund galloping earlier this morning, physically he looks like an absolute beast.
  • Anne Shaw · To me he looks absolutely gorgeous, something about him-----so hoping his big feet get 100%. Yes, something about him. Thanks for the great picture. · 11 hours ago
Keen Ice had finished in front of Frosted the last 2 times they were in the same race. He can make it 3 straight in the 2016 DWC because I don't think Frosted will be racing against Keen Ice in the Al Maktoum round 3.
  • cugel the clever · Not based on current form. Keen Ice hasn't proven that he's even close to the same horse he was in the Travers and Haskell, which appears to be where he peaked over 5 months ago. · 11 hours ago
Nyquist and Exaggerator better hope Malibu Sunshine doesn't show up. He could bust a 100 beyer on that speed favoring track.
Any news on her?
