What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Ide Be Cool will not get recognition until his trainer puts him in a better race. He could have run IBC in the DeD Jackpot Stakes G3, Lecompte, Risen Star, or LA Derby but did not.
The chairman of The Jockey Club calls for transparency of the veterinary records of all horses entered in this year's Triple Crown races.Read More

  • travel_vic · follow up to that BAD regulation that your fictinal example claims are SO SO BAD> Deficiencies in this original statute, which had become noticeable by the 1920s, led to the replacement of the 1906 statute with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, which, was enacted in 1938 and signed by President Franklin Roosevelt. The 1938 Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, along with its numerous amendments, remains the statutory basis for federal regulation of all foods, drugs, biological products, cosmetics, medical devices, tobacco and radiation emitting devices by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. · 1 minutes ago ·

Checked the "raw" numbers on this one going INTO the SA Derby (so that effort was not available for this evaluation) and the animal is improving by leaps and bounds both in total energy and particularly in % median which has averaged IN the range for a Derby candidate in the range of 67.3, on the low end but there nonetheless. NOW if this one matches up well with the field, he should be a prominant numbers colt to be reckoned wiht. The KEY is how they do at 9 furlongs. Recall that War Emblem's Illinois Derby was key in understanding how he would be able to not only secure a lead, but if not pushed too hard, could get the distnace easily. This one suggests being a prime contender OBJECTIVELY but without the final piece of the puzzle that cannot be bolstered with a big yes, YET

  • Stagedoorjohnny · Neither the afternoon Examiner nor the Times had the best handicapper in those days. The San Diego Union did - Nelson Fisher, whom by the way handicapped horses but never, ever bet on the ponies. He was a genius at what he did though. As for Prof. Jones - didn't he go to prison for some kind of betting fraud schemes? · 3 hours ago ·

  • buckpasser · LAZ. I have always felt the comment about Bold Rulers' not being able to go 10f was more of a comment against the Phipps family and how many of their BR youngsters were great at two but were less stellar at three. Other owners had BRs that went 10f like WH Perry. · 2 hours ago ·

  • slewcrew7778 · Never a mention of turf. If the connections are only looking out for their non-breeding investment I suppose anything is possible. But if the horse is fit and Rome is the sportsman he's made out to be, he'll target the dirt competition - namely Chrome - somewhere down the line; who in my opinion would blow away Will Take Charge if they ran tomorrow. · 2 hours ago ·

This was interesting....upon reading 'Frankel's' bio they had this to say...."Since 1900, of British-bred racehorses only Ribot has won more races and finished his career unbeaten (racing largely in Italy).[6] Frankel's record of nine consecutive Group 1 wins is unsurpassed and has been equalled only by the U.S.A. filly Zenyatta".

  • LAZMANNICK · Ribot's nationality is strange to say the least. He was by an Italian stallion, out of an Italian dam, bred by an Italian, trained by an Italian, ridden by an Italian jockey, owned by an Italian, raced mainly in Italy and yet was foaled at National Stud in England and therefore is actually an English bred. · 2 hours ago ·
