Won the listed Newmarket Stakes to Abdon in 2nd and Sky Kingdom in 3rd!
Before anyone takes this the wrong way,and takes this post as a criticism of a Jockey i think has legendary status. I have watched him ride Keeneland for the past 2 weeks. Granted the quality of mounts has been far from top shelf,but that never stopped him before. Sad to say , but this is hardly the Stevens of last year,let alone the Hall of Famer that he is. Maybe what gets all of us,has crept up on him. That would be Father time himself. About a month ago,i commented about Mor Spirit and how he was ridden from a visual point of view. I questioned if maybe the horse was not up to par,and that they were eing careful with him. But after watching Gary the past 2 weeks at Keeneland. Maybe just maybe he is part of the problem with Spirit. For his sake and Bafferts, i do hope that i am wrong.
Big congrats to the sire of Galileo Gold on his first G1 winner! A very promising start to the year for Paco Boy.
Won the 2,000 Guineas very nicely indeed! :D
Short priced favorite, Jack Hobbs, finishes a well beaten last after being pulled up by William Buick in the G2 Jockey Club Stakes in at Newmarket on his seasonal debut.
Corey Lanerie must realize he's no Calvin Borel. If you watch the Louisiana Derby, he hesitated at the top of the stretch while his horse had great momentum then decided to take the inside route which proved to be a fatal mistake. I believe of the two Uncle Mo colts, Tom will be the one better placed at the 1 1/4 distance. I didn't like the way Nyquist bore out in the stretch even though he won impressively. Amoss is a good trainer and if he says this is the best 3 year old he has ever trained then i'm onboard. I'm just hoping for a hot pace and hopefully we'll see the devastating close that Amoss has talked about.
Very impressive winner to the G2 Jockey Club Stakes! I'm very much looking forward to his future runs. :)
People CONSTANTLY look at the WRONG END of a horse race in developing an idea whether it was a good effort or not. ONCE a horse is beaten, the rider does not persist and the final fraction has little to do with the early pace effort.
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.
  • Pebbles via Disqus · And Charismatic did not finish too far back despite the 4 th place finish. At least not the 8 1/4 lengths Mohaymen finished in the Florida Derby. But I am very glad to be wrong on this. I believe Charismatic did finish 8 3/4 lengths back. But it was his 2nd to last Derby prep. So Mohaymen does have a bit of a struggle. · 3 hours ago
True. But Charismatic did have at least 2 routes. After all, didn't a lot of Derby winners of the past win the Derby trial before the Derby, but most that I know of had multiple routes beforehand.
What do you think I'll get on this guy when he wins in May? 30-1?

Best of luck to Buratino in the Guineas! If I were actually betting, I might've bet on this one to win or place. He's such a tempting price.
Love how it's sponsored by Dunaden @Overbury Stud this year. Just a reminder that Dunaden's gonna have some foals running around soon! I hope he gets some very good mares~
I'm feeling lucky today punks!!! I'm on a lucky streak, My last 6 sporting bets have all won, and I ran the London Marathon last week in under 4 hours (and on the way around, I found a £20 note on the street, nice bonus or wot) and I'm ready to make a nice amount of money today on the 2000 Guineas. Have a good day each and every 1 of you. :-D
Gonna watch for Massaat, Marcel, Buratino and Herald The Dawn here. Also curious of Zonderland (I wish there were more Dutch Arts running around). As usual, I really could care less about Air Force Blue.
Some food for thought, from 2006 through 2015, the ground for every renewal of the English 2000 Guineas has been rated either good or good to firm save 2012 when Camelot won the race on ground rated good to soft. So based on past renewals I think there's a pretty decent chance that Air Force Blue is likely to get the kind of ground he'll be at his best over.
Is it just me or all the comments gone from here?
  • Ryno Lascavio via Disqus · My comment never posted. I wouldnt get too worried about this colts slow start just yet. Zenyatta hardly raced as a 3 year old. Some horses just take a little more time coming around. He might get better as a 4 year old. · 8 hours ago
Goes to show that there is a lot more to horse breeding than "wins".
Mohaymen is the 3rd best grey in the Kentucky Derby, Creator and Destin will finish ahead of him, just saying! :-)
Nyquist has a DI 7 and CD 1.0. Both well above average for endurance and speed. If he gets his trip and runs his race it's his to lose. But if he doesn't win then who? I see it wide open. Save your money on the pick six and bet pick 4. Hit ALL in the Derby leg. It is a 20 horse stampede of freshmen. Note to that Outwork has a higher DI and CD than Nyquist.
