Dortmund galloping earlier this morning, physically he looks like an absolute beast.
Any news on her?
Silence any news on her?
  • SSilence86 via Disqus · She returned to the work tab on 2/1 going easy 4F in :51 and change. I don't know if they'll step her up yet. · 3 days ago
  • SSilence86 via Disqus · She is now possible for the Rachel Alexandra Stakes on Feb. 20th · 6 hours ago
This one's running style will be far more suited to a European style pace pressure set up.
Returned to the worktab this morning
Racing next in the Pelican Stakes at Tampa Bay on 2/20/16
Keen Ice had finished in front of Frosted the last 2 times they were in the same race. He can make it 3 straight in the 2016 DWC because I don't think Frosted will be racing against Keen Ice in the Al Maktoum round 3.
I can't wait to see if Nyquist or Exaggerator wins. I was talking to someone who thinks Exaggerator is better, but I personally like Nyquist. Who do you think will win?
Will Nyquist be the first to break the triple digit BSF barrier for this year's 3 year old crop?
  • Elhubbo · I think it depends on how he gets pushed. His last time going 7 he beat Swipe quite easily. If Exaggerator is indeed a Derby horse we could see high 90's or better. Really all BSF have been lower than what I've thought from California the last 6mos. Nyquist looks ready to go. · 11 hours ago
First crop is 2 years old. Something to look forward to later in the year
Worked 4 furlongs fast track 48.03b (2/15) on Feb 9th.
Noticing Uncle Mo's offspring's recent success on the Derby trail, I recall CP running down Mo in the King's Bishop. I was wondering if there was any news of Caleb's Posse's sire prospects, or was he a one-hit wonder?
It would be interesting to find out if he had the x factor or not.
  • ksweatman via Disqus · It would be even more interesting to find out what they did with his remains. Very suspicious, not a word. No memorial plans, nothing. So disrespectful for such a great champion. · 13 hours ago
Exaggerator, in his final work before the San Vicente, drills a 47.40 work today going 4F, 2nd fastest work of the distance. Runs next Monday vs. Nyquist.
BREAKIKG NEWS: Dale Romans confirms that despite his 6th place finish in the Donn Handicap, Keen Ice will ship to Dubai and run in the Dubai World Cup. Keen Ice will leave on February 18th.
Is possible for the Southwest Stakes!
Keen Ice might not be the Greatest race horse ever, but lets look at only some facts. 1. He is the only horse to defeat our triple crown champion. (yes there was a speed duel, but Keen Ice proved that he is a grade 1 horse...cannot be argued) 2. The last 2 races were at tracks that are historically tough on closers. 3. His breeding clearly suggests that his best race is yet to come. (Almost every horse with Kris S in the pedigree got better with age....Rock Hard Ten and Zenyatta to name a couple) A trainer does over a few dozen things to prepare a horse for a race. This includes "prep races". It is hard for any normal human being to understand that a trainer isn't "trying" to win a $500,000 race. If you take into account that it is preparation for a 1,000,000, 2,000,000, 5,000,000 or 10,000,000 race, it becomes easier to understand. A racehorse does his/her hardest running during 2 circumstances. 1. A horse is trying to pass, and must be fought off 2. The horse is using all his/her power to pass another horse During these 2 moments, the absolute most wear and tear occurs, which takes recovery time. Anybody who thinks that Dale Romans doesn't know what he is doing....... well if Keen Ice remains healthy, you will soon understand
Keen Ice has been written off by most after the Donn. I didn't bet him in that race, one of the main reason being that he was guaranteed to be over-bet since the Travers. This has changed. I expect he'll have much longer odds in his next race, whether that be Dubai or something in the States. And I'll definitely consider him strongly in said race. If you never liked him much, than I can't fault you for continuing to choose against him. But if you were a fan, but are now turned off, I don't think the Donn was the race to decide that. 1) It's Gulfstream Park. Only Tommy Macho managed to win from off the pace, and the Fred Hooper had a wicked second 1/4 that knocked the front-runners out. 2) It was his first start off the bench. He took some time off, give him a race to shake off the rust. Who knows, he may be one of those horses who runs on racing (like Chrome) - the results of 2015 certainly suggest this is true. 3) There was pretty much no pace to run at. The leaders ran the final 5f in :59.76, and the final 3f in :36.01. Keen Ice ran these in :59.61 and :35.80. How is a grinder supposed to close any faster? If the race had any pace, these fractions at least get him on the board, and he could've won if it was :47 or so.

  • CB via Disqus · If the only way he can win is pace and pace alone, then he's a one-trick-pony, but I don't think that's the case. Winning is one thing, floundering in the stretch and not hitting the board is another. I still like him, but until his connections change up their strategy and run him mid pack, I can't see him winning being 10 lengths back considering the quality of horses he's facing. He's no Zenyatta by any stretch of the imagination. · 1 day ago
  • Mike in SB · I would like to see two things for Keen Ice. First, don't go to Dubai, I admit I am not a fan of Dubai racing, it just seems to take something out of American horses for some reason. And second, run him in 1 1/4 mile races and since almost all the 1 1/4 mile races for older horses are in California, point for the Big Cap, Gold Cup at Santa Anita and Pacific Classic. Remember the Breeders Cup is at Santa Anita this year. If he goes to Dubai, in my opinion, he will probably be out until June or July and if he stays in the east he will be forced to run in 1 1/8 mile races while he is a proven winner at 1 1/4 miles. · 16 hours ago
I you'd like to help save racing in New England please Send an email to the Gaming Commission at mgccomments@state.ma.us with DRAFT RACING REGULATIONS in the subject line Simply tell them as an OWNER/ fan/horsean they can only support one Horseman's group the NEHBPA and not SUPPORT or FUND the MTHA or the Commonwealth Horseman's Association (CHA) or any other group that feels they can simply state they represent the horseman without proper elections or bylaws . Its is simply against all State and National Regulations. Please email again and have any interested family and friends state and email the same It is turning into a popularity contest and the gaming commission is going to be looking at legal actions against them. This is so important to keep racing alive in New England. I can't tell you enough how important it is for ALL(state doesn't matter) of you to email and how close we are for this becoming a reality.
Working out very slowly, the 4 works at Santa Anita. Hope he perks up a bit so they can race him.
