I have never bet before but on Kentucky Derby Day I would like to bet on Nyquist - I read a good way to bet is just to "Show" - then I read to bet "Win Place & Show across the board - May I ask what the difference is?
Has Creator's jockey ever raced in the derby?
It is a strange year, but no horse has won the Kentucky Derby off a 10 week or more lay off except Regret who had no Derby prep at 3 and no horse that I can remember has won the Kentucky Derby without a 9 furlong prep race. So those of you backing Destin will be going against tradition. But with Nyquist doing the Derby sprint/route prep schedule which is the first time that has been done that I am aware since War Admiral, and with other novel approaches who knows? :-)
Art Sherman officially announces that California Chrome's return race will be the G2 San Diego Handicap at Del Mar on July 23rd. They will target this race as a prep for the Pacific Classic. CC is expected to return to California on May 7th.
After looking at the sheets for this years Derby. Based on my interpetation of the race,the likeliest winner will come from one of the following 3 horses. Moyhaman , Mor Spirit or Exaggerator . Not that they are super fast,but just based on comparative numbers. They ran fast as 2yos and followed it up with pairing numbers as 3 year olds.
Charismatic did not show much until the 8.5f Lexington (which is missing from the HRN background on him)...lack luster 4th in the SA Derby..........LEXINGTON effort put him over the top, not a 9 panel affair.
I think many people are over rating Mohaymen!! That was no fluke for Majesto running 2nd to Nyquist in the Florida Derby and no punt intended, but I am glad I played that Trifecta. Reason is Majesto was improving and coming off a 97 speed figure winning a maiden race, he just ran into a great G1 horse in Nyquist. The same can be said about Danzing Candy and My Man Sam coming off Maiden wins speed figure of 101 and 97 respectively, but got beaten by very good G1 horses in Exaggerator and Brody's Cause. Moreover, some folks may think Nyquist was tiring in the Florida Derby when he drifted some in the stretch, but he was just looking around for competition and not paying attention. I don't think we have seen the best of Nyquist yet, so I am hoping to see another Triple Crown winner [but then again that's just me following my unorthodox handicapping]...
Dortmund is back in training! He's at Los Alamitos and will possibly be ready to race by late Summer.
I hope he wins and Florent gets his first derby win. Florent has been winning everything in sight.
Del Mar and The Stronach Group have announced an offer of a $1-million bonus to a horse who sweeps this year’s TVG Pacific Classic, the Xpressbet Awesome Again Stakes and the Breeders’ Cup Classic. The three Grade I races, all open to 3-year-olds and up, are scheduled to be run on Saturday, August 20 (TVG Pacific Classic at Del Mar), Saturday, October 1 in the Awesome Again Stakes and Saturday, November 5 (Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita Park). (I think this bonus is too target a certain Dubai World Cup winner).
Gun Runner, Brody's Cause, Mor Spirit, Creator/Sudden, Nyquist
What does everyone think about the jockey? he has put the horse in bad spots. Could it be a set up for a big pay out on Derby Day?
Reports are that Destin has been lathered up in his three gallops at Churchill Downs, while bone dry when galloping at Palm Beach Downs.
Russell Cohen is my biological father, but not my real father anymore. This name "effinex" is about my mother-- the one who raised me to be who I am today. Russell was abusive towards my entire family. It brings me great discomfort to know good things happen to bad people. Russell Cohen deserves NONE of this money. Additionally, it upsets me to know he still thinks about my mom in this way. Imagine one of your biological parents making fun of your actual parent-- the one who raised your siblings and you. It's very upsetting to see that Russell cannot move on with his life for he is still, to this day, criticizing my mother.

  • bronzeprincess33 · My parents separated just before I turned 4 (didn't actually divorce until some years later), so I understand being ticked off about it. If my father had done this, I would have been furious. However, this isn't the place to discuss such things. You might want to think about talking to someone in person; typing your feelings regarding such a sensitive subject on a public website is pretty much pointless. I also feel compelled to add that it's not the horse's fault. In a way, he's being used as a pawn in a petty game of anger, which isn't really appropriate. Then again, the horse doesn't exactly know that, so should we really care? Probably not. In addition, picking out names for racehorses is notoriously difficult. There are strict rules on the subject, so owners have to get inspiration from whatever they can. Besides, perhaps it wasn't meant to be derogatory; maybe it was intended to be a joke (albeit a bad one). · 10 days ago
  • Graft Guy via Disqus · Russell Cohen is a Gentleman and great guy. Sorry your sentiments are so negative and you expect so much. Russell deserves all the success with this horse as he worked harder than you or any one you know combined. · 4 hours ago
I'm trying to find the 2005 Santa Anita Derby video on youtube, and trying to recall how I arrived at the winner of the KyDerby as Giacomo.....the video is gone, and boohoo I cannot really recall my thought process why I liked him so well, but this year will be another long shot year, so sure of it! I know how and why I had Animal Kingdom, but Giacomo in my memory is a bit harder to assess.
So I've just been thinking about this "What will the finishing order of the grey horses be in the Kentucky Derby?". I can't decide who is gonna be the top grey in the KD, I think it will be close between Destin and Creator, but I am saying Destin will be the TOP grey, then Creator, then Mohaymen and then Lani. That's what I think anyway.
Hope to see him in the Woody Stephens at Belmont. He has been training at Churchill so you all could be right about the Pat Day Mile, though his works do not seem that fast. I do not know if Mark Casse works his horses fast or not. Casse may want to keep him in the barn a bit longer to get acclimated to him and send him next out well rested.
HRN really needs to check their info Alydar did run as a 4-yold, losing the Oaklawn H., but winning the Nassau County H. in a terrific time. Sigh I'm a bit of stickler for stats.
Horse racing fans of America and around the World. THIS is "Air Force Blue". He's already a superstar, and will be making his 2016 debut on Saturday by winning the G1 2000 Guineas. You will see and hear a lot more about this horse this year, I'm sure he will go unbeaten all year, and knowing Aiden 'O' Brien, he will aim him at one of the races at the Breeders Cup. Probably the Breeders Cup Mile, BUT it's not totally out of the question that he could go for the BC Classic. Depending on how impressive he wins his races this year, the BC Classic is a definite possibility, he could turn out to be an unstoppable force this year. :-)
this will be the horse i will go to if its muddy track out of all the preps that had rain he ran the best one thats how i picked super saver won the superfecta one of my bigggest hits
