You could go on and, on of why kelso is the greatest racehorse of all-times. I think more and, more people will wake up to the incredible things kelso did. One of the craziest was how for a horse who weighed about 1000 pounds if he weighed that much, was carrying 12pct of his body weight! That's more than a big horse like forego, who weighed about 1,200 pounds and, stood 17 hands, was carrying. For a horse to equal kelso, they would have to win the breeders cup 5 years in a row nad, win the jockey gold cup during those same 5 years in a row, which isn't even 2 miles anymore! Not to mention that he is also one of only 3 horses to win the jockery gold cup, the woodward and, the whitney in the same year. He would have won the woodward 4 times but, he hit his head againts the gate and, fell and, lost to his cousin gun bow by only a nose! Think he would have been the only horse had he won that woodward, to win the jockey gold cup, the woodward and, the whitney 2 times in one year! He is also the only horse to win the handicap triple crown carrying over 130 pounds in all 3 races! Only horse to ever set a record on dirt and, then set a record on grass, just 11 days later! He was also the first horse to win best 3 year old and, not win the triple crown! When he won the last jockey gold cup he broke his own record at 3:19 1/5 and, that was on a sloppy track and, when he did his win at the dc which is againts the best horses in the world he broke that record on 3 tight turns and, they used tape instead of gates in that race cause the foreign horses don't use gates, which would have thrown kelso off. You could go on and, on about KING KELLY. Kelso is the greatest racehorse of all-times all respects to his great grandfather man of war who was one hell of a horse. Yes, 'ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A HORSE NAMED KELSO BUT, ONLY ONCE'. When they brought kelso to belmont for the last time, he was 26 and, forego was right there with him and, forego was 13 and, some people say kelso still looked as young as forego. Kelso was a freak, a real phenomenon and, he will not happened again. I'll never forget him, KELSOS' BIGGEST FAN, TEDDY.

This colt is the real deal.
The great Black Caviar will next be bred to Sebring
I love this blog because it is user friendly with appreciative information pancake air compressor
Good little set up
Two warriors bought/claimed away from Jacobson and now retired: Be Bullish (claimed by Repole) and Cayambe (bought by his breeder Geri Forrester). Happy retirement/retraining!

This mare might become something special, she has a very nice pedigree. Very nice :)
If all goes well this week, will arrive at Keeneland Sunday, to prepare for Alcibiades. Wish her luck and safe trip!

  • Anne Shaw · Well we surely do wish the best for her. Watched videos of her last races. Be watching when she races. She seems like a fun fast filly and she's very pretty too. GL to all of you! · 11 hours ago
I just wonder about the distance? I think she can win at both (shes done it before ) I mean don't you in at distance you qualifie at ? ? ? I need to find out. jlp
  • Goblin · If she doesn't run in a "win and you're in" race, she will have to be chosen by panel, since she doesn't have any BC points either. The panel appears to have the power to create its own criteria for each division. So, it doesn't look as though she is limited to a certain distance per se. The BH article says she is going to the Distaff even though they are putting her in the LA Woman as a "prep". I'll link the "How It Works" page for BC qualifications here again. You can see that the panel has a good deal of discretionary power, especially if a given race is not over-subscribed. http://www.breederscup.com/races/how-it-works · 12 hours ago
Look Shared Belief can win the awesome again, classic, and clark and still has no shot at 3 year old honors end of story
  • TIM KUHN via Disqus · agreed, CC with 3 big wins is 3yr old Champ · 13 hours ago
  • Northport · If Chrome doesn't bounce back from his Penn Derby 6th place and Shared Belief wins the Awesome Again and Classic, SB will absolutely take 3 y/o honours. Eclipse voters have a very short memory, a horse that flashes brilliance at the end of the season can (and often do) trump the accomplishments of those made earlier in the season. Just ask Orb, Game on Dude, Princess of Sylmar, etc. · 12 hours ago
I hate to say, no disrespect to Shared Belief, he's awesome, but with CC's loss today, this puts Shared Belief in the drivers seat to win champion three year old and HOTY, if he wins the Awesome Again and BCC, the awards are his, Jim Rome and connections saw the PA Derby and had a huge smile on there faces when they saw CC lose. Now this might be Shared Belief division to lose.
  • ruffianlover · SB has to win both the AA and the Classic to take HOTY · 2 days ago
  • TIM KUHN via Disqus · HOTY yes, but champion 3 yr old is CC, Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Santa Anita Derby, enough said · 13 hours ago
From this morning's Racing Post web-site: 4-time G1 winner Kingman has been retired due to having to undergo treatment for a sore throat, which rules him out of any Autumn targets.

Bob Baffert was on At The Races with Steve Byk Friday. Baffert considers Steve Haskin the nation's best thoroughbred writer, and was honored with Haskin's story of Game On Dude's career and retirement in Blood-Horse. Always a speedy one, Game On Dude silenced his critics with a blistering 2014 Big Cap that came close to Spectacular Bid's 10 furlong record, while running the legs off of Will Take Charge and Mucho Macho Man. Maybe lost in the win was his time for 8 furlongs, 1:31.02. Dr. Fager's dirt mile record is 1:32 1/5. Mr. Light's turf mile record is 1:31.41. Game On Dude shattered these times, while still holding off WTC to win his third Santa Anita Handicap. The gelding had heart that day. He knew only one way to run – fast. Funny that ex best buddies Chantal Sutherland and Mike Smith both had big wins on the same horse.
  • Mary Z. · Big fan of The Dude, and I'd like to believe he ran that fast of a mile split, but where do you get that time from, airedale? I do not find it in the chart. · 16 hours ago
  • Sullivan · As a strong lover of Dr. Fager, I consider myself an educated student of his mile record. As such, I can inform you with confidence the real time of Game on Dude's mile was 1:32 and change. Impressive, but still not 'wow' as Phil put it. · 15 hours ago
will carry top weight of 121lbs in the Kelso Handicap
Why are you selling Princess of Sylmar at action? Why not retire her to your farm? Or find a PA stud far for her to go to.

  • cedar · I get this decision. Kind of like Groupie Doll last year. I'm sure this was a very tough choice for the Stanco's, but there is no way she won't end up at a world class farm owned by someone who will breed her to world class stallions. They will get a very nice sum of money for her which can go right back into their racing operation. No one will be worse off except for some initial sadness of letting her go. Just hope she stays on this side of the Atlantic. · 19 hours ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · Because regardless if the public likes it or wants to accept it. Anyone that gets into Horse Racing is doing it for the money first. That is not to say they are insensitive to the horse. They treat the horse while under their ownership with the greatest of care. They provide medically and hopefully responsibly in their decisions to decide a racing program. But when it is all done and said with,these horses are just to expensive to maintain and to Valuable to pass up at selling. This is not a negative,believe me and i say it with the greatest of confidence. If someone pays out the money they will for P.O.S. , be advised that the excellent care will continue 10 fold. Why i get a chuckle when some talk about horses that others own in terms of endearment and the only motive is for the love of the horse. Like i said before,they all love their horses. But this is a money first game. Do not ever forget it. · 17 hours ago
