Hi! You trained my Ottb
who's everyone's pick so far for horse of the year
He coming to america to race in the million woooooooo love arlington
who called this race? sounds like Dave Johnson; i'm almost sure.
Del Mar Racetrack ‏@DelMarRacing We have decided to end sprints and claiming races on the turf. Reducing the meet's turf races by 33%.
  • Northport · In my opinion I think this is a good move. Some people have said the turf track is like concrete, but many others have said the turf is fine. What seems to be a huge factor is the fact that as a boutique meet, many owners want to have a horse running during Del Mar, thus claiming is huge at the beginning of the meet as many trainers unload their slow and unsound horses. · 4 hours ago
This Colt Broke His Maiden at ELLIS PARK on the Turf....Very Impressive!!
I was reading on-line earlier where trainer Aidan O'Brien was saying a little concerned about Venus De Milo running over the shorter trip of 10f in the G1 Nassau Stakes on Saturday because the best of her career form to date has been at 12f. But really, her form lines the couple of times she's raced at 10f hasn't been too shabby either. She won the listed Naas Oaks Trial at 10f last season in her Irish Oaks prep, and in her most recent start ran a very good 2nd behind Thistle Bird in the G1 Pretty Polly Stakes in Ireland. With Thistle Bird out of the Nassau Stakes and there being no proven G1 winners in the field, I think Venus De Milo will take some beating. Her form is solid right now, having also won the G3 Munster Oaks Stakes over 12f at Cork in Ireland prior to the Pretty Polly Stakes.
How is Blind Luck doing? She s one of my all time favorite fillies!
Any news on this guy? No recorded workouts.
Interesting renewal of the G1 Nassau Stakes on Saturday in that this is the 1st time I can remember the race not having even one filly or mare in the field that's already a G1 winner, so one of these filly/mares is gonna break their Group 1 cherry on Saturday at Goodwood! My Nassau Stakes super-fecta: 1st-Venus De Milo 2nd-Sultanina 3rd-Narniyn 4th-Mango Diva.
This horse raced last Saturday at Delmar and won! Anyone know why the race is not list in the results below? Thanks
Very interested to see how this one debuts tomorrow.
Nice this jerk can hire back Blasi. Torturing race horses is not gonna make them winners. Just like with a dog, they long to please you. They are in it for the money and will stop at nothing to win. I suggest fair punishment is that we take both of them to the blacksmith ship, get a hot iron and stick it up their behind, fill the behind hole with super glue. Then immediately take them to a 103 degree race track and get an electric prod and zap them into running the track. Sound fair? No different than what they do to horses.
Nice pedigree 👍
Has been retired and will be sold at Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale
No works, last 10 days, per Equibase. His half brother goes in today's 4th, at DMR.
So another very bad breakdown on the turf track at Del Mar today? The filly Serious might have to be euthanized (vets are recommending it, owners are trying to save her). This is a scary situation, with so many breakdowns on the new surface. What is even more frightening is that I do not think they have a clue as to what is going on and why so many horses are getting hurt and having to be euthanized. I do not think you could do or give me anything to risk running a horse on that turf track this summer. http://www.paulickreport.com/news/the-biz/turf-troubles-continue-at-del-mar-races-switched-to-polytrack-through-weekend/

  • skipaway2000 · The Glenn Hill Farm connections have the classiest turf horses in So Cal, and according to them, the turf is fine. They have no plans to avoid the upcoming turf stakes races with their stable stars: https://twitter.com/craigb1818/status/495037540416880640 · 13 hours ago
Rachel has a full sister Samantha Nicole racing Aug 1 at Saratoga race 3. This will be her second start, she finished 2nd in her only other start. She looks very good to me. Good luck Samantha. jlp
  • travel_vic · evaluate the INDIVIDUAL before you not their brother or sister or you will fall prey (as many suckers do) to this fallacy that two of the same parents are going to be ANYTHING alike. I can give you dozens of full siblings to Ribot, Norther Dancer, Spend A Buck, Alysheba and Secretariat who could not beat "a fat man DOWN a hill" as the expression goes. · 14 hours ago
Second in her debut at Fair Grounds in February, Samantha Nicole, full sister of Rachel Alexandra, makes career start #2 in today's 3rd race at Saratoga.
I do not believe I have posted on her Haskell loss, so here's my observation- she got beat. Outrun. Brought back down to earth. I like this filly, and hope they haven't ruined her, but I've been saying for weeks that SHE ISN'T RACHEL. I stand by that opinion. She probably had 3yo filly honors wrapped up. There was no need to face the boys.
  • jockey2be. · Agreed. · 1 day ago
  • supercool666 · But they had to give her a shot didn't they, all that "HYPE" that she was a "Superstar", but now she has been exposed as not being one! · 20 hours ago
