All systems go. 3/4 in 1:14 today. They must have a plan!Teddy Drone came up tough! We shall see!!!!! Battle of Evermore was a very good 3rd at Del Mar yesterday. Let's hope he follows the same flight path as bern Identity and wins second out.
The Connections of Untapable rooled the dice and shot for the Moon. The result of all this,it earned them a trip to Parx and now point for The Cotillion Stakes. Not belittling this race,it has its history. But to a filly that was head and shoulders the best in her division. The Alabamas winners trophy should of had her name on it. Hopefully the so called new breed owner will come to their sanity and respect the value of divisional races that their predecesors valued so greatly. All of a sudden in todays game,these races are rendered meaningless. They listen to their speed figure gurus and to a fan base that has absolutely no clue about racing. They want the glory,they want the story and all the fame that comes from it. What they do not figure on is the bottom line affect to the filly. This stab at Fools Gold has basically cost her the season. The effort knocked her out so much,that they are pointing to a race 8 weeks down the line. What is their move after that,The BC Distaff. With 1 race under her belt,she will get eaten up by the likes of the leaders of the Female Older Division. Assmusen is getting better at this.With Rachel she was succesful at 3 against the Boys, but the strenuous schedule killed her career. With their decision to run in this years Haskell, they may of ruined another career at an earlier age. Yes i am sure someone will come out and say that Fillies always run against the Boys and win. Yes but that is on the Turf ,where it is not as strenuous an effort. Zennyatta was succesful the 2 times she did it. But Shirrefs did it when she was older and much more developed physically and mentally. He also took his shot at the last race of the year,not during the Peak. Even the Hall Of Famer Bill Mott. With the fastest female horse of all in this decade. That would be Royal Delta,he took his one shot in Dubai and learned his lesson. Enjoy Bensalem , Pa. Ihear it is gorgeous that time of the year. You earned this trip.

  • Mary Z. · Well, tripleD, what must have happened is that he took a look at the pace scenario. Who cares? He changed his mind. Knows she's a very good filly. Saw that the pace was too fast. I don't even know what I said last week. Here, he wrote three thousand lines today. Something to read. · 3 hours ago
  • triple_double · Yeah Mary, I really missed the old format, which is more exciting and not boring. Now, I will only read a 3000 lines thread written by our beloved TMallios, especially after a big race and for sure I have something to say against his opinion. LOL Let's see, next week after the Whitney, especially if Palace Malice loses this race, you might see a 5000 lines thread by TMallios. giggles... LOL · 2 hours ago
She's currently riding a three-race win streak with her win in the Honorable Miss at Saratoga.
Hearing this guy is at WinStar recovering from some kind of unspecified injury -- potentially done for the year. Can anyone confirm his current status?
Will break from post 4 in the West Virginia Derby
Mary,Havre De Grace was fast,but nothing spectacular. To give you a barometer on how fast they ran at their best. The lower the number the faster the horse. HDG was running 0's (comparable to what the top older ones are running today) Beholder in last years BC Distaff ran a (- 2.5) negative. The Queen Royal Delta at her best was running (-4 and -3'son many occassions) Negative numbers. I think the best Zennyatta ran was (-2). Rachel was running (-2 & -3). But it is not the final figure that is that important. Many of these got credited for ground loss. That is what made Royal Delta more impressive.Hers were speed numbers.She was rarely caught wide.

  • tmallios via Disqus · Mary that is why along with you i was a huge supporter of her. Why i make the claim she was by far the best female horse of this century at her best. Winning is irrelevant ,unless you own or bet the horse. It is predicated mostly on the competition.As far as sheer talent ,speed and overall class. The rest could not hold a candle to her. · 7 hours ago

another look has it this way: 2 Ami's Holiday 4 Matador 8 Lynx 10 Lions Bay
Matador would not be too big a surprise
hard to beat the chalk..NOW if it rains hard at the Fort often the first one out of the gate triumphs so watch for the bias on races underneath if it is wet. 2 Ami's Holiday 8 Lynx 10 Lions Bay 6 Coltimus Prime 6 and 8 go out and 2 10 come later......Poor old venue is on life support and is hemorrhaging money.
Rooting for Lynx,Matador.
He is a big favorite of mine. He always tries but Bayern very very tough in the Haskell
Very tough race but I hope La Verdad wins.
Crushed a decent bunch of KY breds at Ellis Park July 27 without breaking a sweat after two strong works at Churchill. Any Given Saturday has shown he can get a big horse at a distance of ground.
You lost the race...get over it Rosie! Gosh, it happens in every race...we can only have ONE winner and you and Asmussen didn't get this win. Sorry, you're not aboard Zenyatta or RA, or HDG.
Lost among all this banter is the now unavoidable fact that Bayern is an absolute monster.
Entered in the Governor's Stakes Saturday at Mountaineer
Entered in R3 (MSW) at Saratoga on Friday
Looking at the card for this weekend and all I can say is wow! This has to be the biggest night ever for the track because from top to bottom the races are flawless!
What do people think on his loss?
