To whom it may concern :) – The New York Gaming Commission amended its Thoroughbred out-of-competition testing rule today to include any substance “capable of abnormally enhancing the oxygenation of body tissues.” According to commission officials, the new language will prohibit the administration of cobalt, a mineral that has been rumored to be widely abused in both Standardbred and Thoroughbred racing for its purported ability to act like a blood-doping agent.
Toast of New York is one of the best horses in all the world ... I wonder what Al Shaqab Racing paid to make him their own.

  • tmallios via Disqus · Congrats to the owners for their decision to sell. They did what everyone hopes for. They sold when the market was at the highest peak. Needless to say that Shaqab Racing has the Dubai Classic in mind. If they are like many of the Middle Eastern Operations,i am sure the purchase price to them was a drop in the bucket. Looks like a win,win for both parties. Shaqib more than likely picked up the favorite for this years Classic. He will be the favorite,regardless who shows up for the race. · 5 days ago
  • amino998 · Me too zatt… Jaime Osbourne says Toast will go next in the World Cup - “You never know how many bullets you’ve got in your belt with these horses, and I want to make sure every time I put one in the barrel, I can hit the target. We can get him ready at home. We showed that last year. When you’ve got a horse with his mentality and his constitution, you want to think globally with him. We have a lot of fun bringing him to the states and for phenomenal prize money. The Pacific Classic will be on dirt this year at Del Mar, but he proved he could run on that at Santa Anita. And if I dare look that far ahead, I would hope to take another crack at the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland to see if we can get it right this time." · 24 minutes ago

  • jvickers · And DRF isn't even charging for it! Maybe I'll make a donation to say "thank you" for allowing me to read about it. · 57 minutes ago
I love this colt. I'm also seeing a trend. When Curlin is crossed with the storm cat line it produces some nice horses.
  • Jbyrnes1 · This colt is my boy!!! Love him to death and wish him all the best when he runs next out, could be Saturday · 5 hours ago

shes scaring away the competition at oaklawn. Oaklawn officals have said they will be lucky to get 5 starters for the martha washington. And that there is only 2 confirmed starters so far
Khozan has come out of his win in great shape. Will probably head to Allowance next and then could take a swing at a big one. (Meaning Florida Derby) according to DRF
Golden Gate 1/21/2015 All Weather Track 6F 1:13.20 Handily current work out for the Shared Belief
Would like to know if this horse will be on the Derby Trail?
Untapable, the champion 3-year-old filly of 2014, had her first workout of the year when she breezed an easy half-mile in 51.80 seconds Monday morning at Fair Grounds. According to DRF
My cousin is an a Prentice jockey at santa anita, he told me that the word out there is that coz is still not ready to race.
Good effort on Mighty One today.
ZATT's Star of the Week, is ... Upstart!
I like calculator in this race...
I'm gonna say Punctuate.. I've liked his workouts so far. Any word on his new jockey? He broke his maiden with Rosie in the irons. Exact box: Punctuate/ Texas Red.
American Sun was eased at Santa Anita today, no news yet on her condition.
Curlin doesn’t count he is related to the Messiah. LOL Maybe CUrlin and Zenyatta. HMM
Tests revealed no significant injuries to multiple graded stakes-winning Wildcat Red following his fifth-place finish in the $250,000 Sunshine Millions Classic on Jan. 17 at Gulfstream Park. Honors Stable's 4-year-old son of D'wildcat is back with trainer Jose Garoffalo at Gulfstream after having been sent to the Palm Beach Equine Clinic last week, where exams showed the Florida-bred colt had a pulled muscle in his back. "The bone scan came out clean. It's a muscle problem, so he'll be OK sooner than later," Garoffalo said. "We checked all the bones and there is no issue, which is a good sign. All he needs is time." Garoffalo said no timetable has been set on a return for Wildcat Red, but said he will be out for over 30 days, article on Bloodhorse
with the timeing of his debut it looks like there gonna give him 1 chance to make the derby. If he dosent break his madein first out I dont see him trying any derby preps cause if he is a late bloomer like his mom why risk it now

  • travel_vic · One do the very basic concepts one learns in this game, IT WILL SURPRISE you, and logic (as we think we know it) is often chucked out the window. · 21 hours ago
  • hannahWTC1 · Poor Coz, so much pressure for him to perform. If he knew how much people are expecting, I doubt he would want to start · 20 hours ago
Hey Buds, Curlin started his Derby campaign in Feb!
  • Age of Reason · I can agree with your point Jay, but I also agreed with Buds and Mallios. Sure, Curlin debuted in February and made the Derby. BUT then Street Sense whipped whipped by ten lengths in Kentucky because, bottom line, when all things else are equal, experience tends to carry the day in that race (I can only think of one exception in 140 years and that's Big Brown. Always one exception to the rule.) I recall Go For Gin was still working 5 furlongs for Nick Zito in the 1:02-1:03 range even before the Derby so that's not the issue in and of itself. The issue is that everybody is projecting Mama onto this poor clueless equine version of an awkward 17 year old boy. If Coz had any idea what some people were expecting of him, he'd never set foot out of his stall again. Lol. · 20 hours ago
In todays 8th at GP are some very nice firsters.Spirit is a half to Dream Rush,and working much better than his odds suggest. Regia Marina is a half to Midshipman . Pin Up is a half to Bernadini,also in her last she worked even with WISECRACKER(Colt who ran 2nd yesterday to future Monster Khozan). With all these hot shot Debs in the race, the one that just might be the one is Todds Fast Moon.In the Mornings ,she is doing it the right way.

  • travel_vic · I worked the gate for two years and became very close to our retiring vet (even visited him over the winter when he had a hip replaceable) and he pointed out, with GREAT recurrence; "You can usually tell the first time starter as they haven't a clue as to what is going on." There is SO much for them to experience in the cacophonous, frightening experience of the gate and the crow, that racing is one of the last things on their mind · 21 hours ago
