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.
BREAKING NEWS: Wide Range, an 11-year-old half sister to 2015 champion 2-year-old filly Songbird, has been purchased privately in Thailand by Team Valor International, which plans to breed the mare this spring. Team Valor said the mare, in foal to English Colony, will go to Denali Stud and be bred back to either Animal Kingdom for Team Valor, or Medaglia d'Oro, sire of Songbird.
Last horse to win the Dubai World Cup and Breeders Cup Classic in the same year was... NOBODY!!! I'd much rather stay in the US and map out a nice schedule that doesn't have much risk, not even mentioning a horse who has a history of fragile legs to boot. As much as I would love to see DORTMUND in Dubai, there's just not much of a greater benefit going there than staying home and getting healthy! There's alot more fish to fry this year!
Stageplay worked today at Fairgrounds. Her official workout time for 6F was 1:12.2. She galloped out 7F in 1:25.4. She worked in company with Gun Runner.
GR worked today at Fairgrounds. His official time for 6F was 1:12.2. He galloped out 7F in 1:25.4. GR worked in company with Stageplay. It looks as if my KD pick is doing well.
thank goodness SOMEONE understands pace
KI is a good closer but this race makes it even more clear that he's not going to win unless the situation is tailor fit for him. Just right off the pace, a distance of least 10 furlongs and a really fast pace that burns out the leaders. If one of these things isn't there he doesn't win it's that simple. This was a relatively weak field to what KI has faced (I know some people like Msawish but cmon) and on class alone he should have won or at the very least hit the board. Truth of the matter is KI hasn't been in the trifecta the last three races. After the Travers KI was put on the same level as Frosted and Dortmund because he actually beat AP. This race reveals that the reason for his win was the perfect conditions and that of the big four AP rivals (Frosted, Dortmund, FL and KI) KI is probably the worst horse by far. Don't get me wrong KI is the best son of Curlin yet but in the end he hasn't been in the trifecta his last three starts (as impressive as the Clark was and as tough as the BCC field was)
Taxable had her 8th workout today. She has worked regularly since December 11th while only skipping one week. She worked 5f in 101.20 at Fairgrounds. I'm excited to see her working as this filly was impressive winning her maiden race by 7 lengths. I hope she has improved as she will be one to watch going forward if she has improved.
Of the 3 so far Kasseopia looks the best.
WIth a very sad heart I announce that Pride of Dubai has been retired.
I love Medaglia d'Oro's ability to pass on broken blazes and super fillies.
Lost in all the shuffle on super Saturday, Hope's Love, California Chrome's full sister, will try to break her madien in race 8 going one mile. Two turns for the first time in her career.
Does anyone know where Royal Delta is? how she is? She was to go to Ireland but there are no babies listed for her? A horse like that could not just fall off the face of the earth. Where is she.. please post!

  • SSilence86 via Disqus · She did not have a foal last year. She didn't take or lost it. I cannot remember which. She was re bred to Galileo last year for a foal this year. She was due in Jan? I don't know if she's foaled yet or not. The plan was to let her foal this year, re breed her to Galileo and then come back to the U.S. · 1 day ago
  • Dna0571 · Royal Delta is alive and well at Coolmore in Ireland. In her first breeding season she ended up not getting pregnant and then last year she did and was in foal to a filly. Unfortunately towards the end of last year she lost her foal due to umbilical cord complications I believe. She will again be going back to Galileo sometime this month and I am not sure what the plans are with her from there. · 19 hours ago

Shoot for Kentucky. Come on. It'd be one heck of a derby.

  • reshuffler · I think that's a little bit to much for this guy. Considering who his opposition will be I don't why you would do that. I would stay here and win some stakes while the best opposition is gone. · 23 hours ago

I like fillies that win at 1 1/16 miles at CD as a two year old and then come back the next year to win impressively at other tracks. It's scary to think that her race on 2/5 was only her third lifetime race. I can't wait to see if she continue to progress. As of today, Terra Promessa is my projection pick to win the Kentucky Oaks. It doesn't hurt that she is a beautiful Curlin filly.
