To hoof_hearted2016, are you being funny, or is that merely natural arrogance on your part?
Exaggerator being freshened at Win Star. Hopefully he isn't retired on the downside like Curlin's other Classic runners, Palace Malice, Ride on Curlin, maybe Keen Ice. Leaves a sour taste that his main runners have or are going out on the downswing.
Long Island Sound, last seen finishing a narrowly beaten 2nd in the G1 Secretariat Stakes back in August, holds off the William Haggas trained Battalion by a neck to win the G3 Diamond Stakes on the all-weather at Dundalk in Ireland.
This is not so much a comment on Beholder specifically as it is on racing in general -- she has run 24 times. She will run two more times this year. That is 26 races, and she is six years old. Just 26 races in 5 years of running. What happened to hardy horses? By the end of their 6-year old campaigns, Kelso and Forego had run 50+ times each, and I do not believe either ran as a two year old. Ever since the early 2000s, it seems as though owners have decided to limit the number of races these horses run to 5-6x/year. In one sense, that is great for owners, as more and more horses can get to be stakes winners since the better horses are not entered into so many stakes races. Some horses, such as Ghostzapper and Invasor, won HOTY titles with just four races in North America the year they won it. I realize that horses are big investments, but they were 30 years ago as well. And if they are so afraid of the horses breaking down and being destroyed, why race them at age 6? Something else must be at work here, and I am wondering if others can tell me what it is.
Apparently there's this rumor floating around that he passed away. I doubt this is true, but just in case has anyone heard anything?
Read between the line drf article O'Neil is done with his horse. He mentioned the breeding deal.
Now this is an good field! 1st- PLUM DANDY 2nd- Straight Fire 3rd- Gormley
Link does not work.
I hope it is not true, but I heard that Materiality is listed on the Jockey Club Registry as being deceased.
I'm betting on Found to be 2nd, it's a certainty!!! ha ha ha
Nice to see "Mr Z" back in action!!!! :-)
Finally making his debut on Sunday at Belmont Park race 4.
The post position draw for this year's Arc de Triomphe was held earlier this morning and favorite Postponed is well positioned. He'll break from PP #7 of 16. Here's the entire Arc PP draw order: #1-Vedevani, #2-The Grey Gatsby, #3-Siljan's Saga, #4-Silverwave, #5-Talismanic, #6-Harzand, #7-Postponed, #8-New Bay, #9-One Foot In Heaven, #10-Savoir Vivre, #11-Highland Reel, #12-Found, #13-Migwar, #14-Makahiki, #15-Left Hand, and #16-Order Of St George. Harzand is drawn well enough just to Postponed's inside if he's good enough? I also think that Silverwave & New Bay might end up being players too. New Bay ran 3rd in this race last year against without question a much tougher field, but I especially like Silverwave each way at 20-1. He seems in really good form at the right time, and has ran really well in his last 2 starts, winning both the G1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud & G2 Prix Foy.
1st- Iron Fist 2nd- Mr. Z
Only 4 horses. Doesn't matter- still a very great field in a historic race, one of the 6th best turf races in America for males. (Turf, Manhattan, Mile, Turf Sprint, Turf Classic) I can't decide. I have to say Flintshire, Ectot, Money Multiplier, Twilight Eclipse. All within a 5 length span.
how is this a G1 field?

  • Stay Thirsty via Disqus · If this--- Flintshire and Money Multiplier, with two other very good horses, is not a G1 race, then how is the other Hirsch race (Clement), even a graded stakes at all???? · 4 hours ago
The G1 Prix De l'Opera, in my opinion, seems kind of an ambitious spot for Pleascach to be making her seasonal debut coming off of a layoff of nearly 13 months. To be honest, I had written her off as having been retired to broodmare status by Godolphin after having won the G1 Irish 1000 Guineas & G1 Yorkshire Oaks last season, and low and behold if trainer Jim Bolger doesn't go and call an audible on me, LOL. There's no question that Pleascach has the talent to be in the race, but my chief concern would definitely be the amount of time she's been off the track to be lining up against this type of fillies & mares on what will be her first start of the season. That being said, it's awfully hard to second guess a master trainer like Jim Bolger.
Exaggerator has been sent to Winstar Farm for a freshening and might get the rest of the year off. Big Chief Racing announces that Winstar has full control over Exaggerator's future and will decide in the coming weeks on if he will race as a four year old or retire to stud.
1st- Jimmy Bouncer 2nd- Toowindytohaulrox
Barely a field for the Joe Hirsch.
