Nominated to the G1 Delaware Handicap??
  • buckeye630 · She's nominated to both the Delaware Handicap and the CCAO. Porter posted this on Facebook just a little bit ago: "We have nominated to The Delaware Handicap in addition to the Coaching Club American Oaks. The Delaware race is a grade 1 against older fillies and mares for 750K. We will have the option of going to the race depending on who is running. We understand that Stellar Wind is not going to the Delaware Handicap on July 16th. Jerry Hollendorfer told me this morning how happy he is with our two year olds." It sounds like they are still keeping their options open. · 3 days ago

Wishing the best for this horse.
He went 5f in :59 4/5 today
If you want your favorite horse to be at the top of the list, just make multiple new accounts and keep voting! By looking at the profiles of some commenters here, it has already happened.

  • jrem1 · I know. Right? Look at the scores of the first three horses. For the longest time they had high scores of 9.31...now they all are at the 9.38 to 9.41 mark just in the past few days....lols · 27 minutes ago

Saratoga: make sure you walk all around the track, over by the backstretch, near the gate and don't miss the US Racing Museum across the street (it is a treat unto itself). When I was last there a year ago, they were building a smaller exhibit near the main grandstand entrance as a display of what the Hall of Fame is all about to entice more participation. There is a smaller version of the great Secretariat statute in the paddock at Belmont, in a quiet garden area in the Hall of Fame. A must see. Look for the jockey silks room too: very colorful as far as you can see. The place exudes HISTORY in spades.
  • Pebbles via Disqus · Make certain to take the backstretch tours - the Oklahoma walking tour you can find out information about at the Racing Museum. It requires a donation, but the donation gets you admission to the museum. The main track tours are every morning I believe except Tuesday when the track is closed and Travers day. They start at 7:30/8:00 AM. · 1 hour ago
People on here are arguing whether this horse can beat American turf horses, when this horse (in my opinion) could very well win the Arc in October if he runs (I sure hope he does).
Here then is the Classic dream field that potentially could be assembled at Santa Anita on Nov. 5. With almost every major contender having the same or similar running style, which is speed or stalking, it could make for some interesting riding strategies. 2—FROSTED – The question everyone is asking after the Met Mile is where did that performance come from? Although he’s always been a classy horse, he has never given even the slightest indication he was capable of such a Herculean effort. This wasn’t one of the better fields assembled for the Met Mile, but his 14 1/4-length devastation in a spectacular 1:32 2/5 and final quarter in :23 1/5 was other worldly and still defies explanation. He did beat up on a decent field in the grade II Maktoum Challenge (Round Two) as a prep for the World Cup, but could do no better than fifth, beaten five lengths by California Chrome, in the big race. He showed in last year’s Belmont Stakes he loves Belmont Park and no doubt was happy to be home. Some have wondered if he will now switch his objective to the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, but that would be ludicrous to even consider. Despite his poor effort in last year’s BC Classic following a long hard campaign, he showed in the Belmont Stakes that 1 1/4 miles certainly is well within his scope, finishing second in one of the fastest Belmonts ever run. In fact, of those who ran a faster Belmont than American Pharoah – Secretariat, Easy Goer, A.P. Indy. Point Given, and Risen Star – only Risen Star came home his final quarter faster than Frosted, in finishing second. He also closed fastest of all to finish fourth, beaten 3 1/4 lengths, in the Kentucky Derby. Also, let’s remember that a mile at Santa Anita is run around two turns and is not a true mile that tests a horse’s speed, toughness, and stamina, and can be decided by post position. If Frosted shows in the Whitney that the Met Mile was no aberration, then we’re talking serious contender in the Classic. http://cs.bloodhorse.com/blogs/horse-racing-steve-haskin/archive/2016/06/26/mid-year-look-at-the-bc-classic.aspx

A lovely performance from Destin in the Belmont. He can make some big waves later this year, he might pick up a G1 somewhere along the line.

This whole situation reminds me of Rex Ellsworth and the 100 plus horses on his property many of whom starved to death, most notably the dam of Swaps, Iron Reward.
  • Goblin · Hey, BP, did you see that the comments have already been shut down at the BH site? Paulick has an even more distressing account of this situation today. I sincerely hope the state of Kentucky takes definitive action for the horses after this "meeting". Can you give any legal insight? Thanks. · 1 day ago
  • Lomita Momcat via Disqus · Buckpasser, I have to correct you on the dam of Swaps thing. I was attending college in Pomona at the time Ellsworth's ranch in Chino was closed down and the horses seized. An Equine Management class I was attending at Cal Poly visited the Ellsworth ranch several weeks before it was closed down, and what we saw was pretty awful and indespensible. However, Iron Reward was dead long before the problems that closed the ranch down. She was a foal of 1946. The Ellsworth ranch was closed down in 1975. Iron Reward had died of old age some years before that. The LA Times ran the story that said "Iron Reward, dam of Swaps, found dead on Ellsworth ranch." Everyone picked up on that. ...But the LA Times posted a correction a day or so later, stating that Iron Reward was NOT found dead, as in starved to death and recently deceased. What had happened was when the Sheriffs announced the raid on the farm, someone had asked the rep at the press conference what had happened to Swaps' dam. The rep said they had found that she was dead, having looked through Ellsworth's records at the ranch. And indeed she was dead, some years earlier, but not of starvation. The condition of the Ellsworth horses was awful, I saw them with my own eyes; the situation was even worse because there were horses Ellsworth had at Santa Anita that were being cared for and fed, so it was selective, controlled neglect; and there were vets, shores, and other people who knew about the problems on the ranch but didn't report conditions earlier. But truth be told: Iron Reward, dam of Swaps, did NOT die of starvation on the ranch. · 21 hours ago
This should be Mo toms next race, its near Ohio and its a grade 2 with a decent purse!
Another quick 5F work today :)
My belief is Liam's Map would of easily put Pharoah down last year. I absolutely love this horse. His running style, his grey, being Unbridled's Song (RIP). To offer you folks some support to my opening statement before I get rheemed; The troubling trip in the BC Mile proved that Liams's Map was versatile and that he can improvise his running style and adjust to the race's conditions and overcome these obstacles at the highest level of Grade 1 racing. He is truly an exceptional animal as the great ones do make adjustments. I was going to say Pharaoh didn't handle a favorable pace scenario but he did, he put Frosted away in more ways than one in the Travers and on multiple occasions. He beat and re-beat Frosted in that stretch crossed the wire ahead of him and obviously out galloped him. I'll still conceptualize Liam's Map in a match race or a full field of closers getting the job done.
Returns Friday in the second race at Churchill.
This guy is an early favorite of mine, very impressive debut, eagerly awaiting his return.
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · this the NY bred that won by 13 in his debut? · 7 hours ago
I'm thrilled to see him come in 5th in the Epsom Derby, and am looking forward to his next go in graded stakes company! It was a huge step up for him from his previous races.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · According to a piece I saw on yesterday's Racing Post, the 10-person syndicate that makes up Humphrey Bogart's ownership have decided to accept the invitation to run him in the G1 Belmont Derby in America. James Ramsden, who's part of his ownership syndicate, said that further targets in America may be explored with Humphrey Bogart if he runs well in the Belmont Derby. Aidan O'Brien is also sending over Beacon Rock & Bravery for the Belmont Derby,and according to the piece the fillies that may be headed over for the Belmont Oaks are the Aidan O'Brien trained Alice Springs, the Jim Bolger trained Turret Rocks, and the Dermot Weld trained Simannka. · 7 hours ago

  • ILuvTurfRacing · You're not giving very much credence to either of the Aidan O'Brien trained colts that will be coming over from Ireland for the Belmont Derby by tipping that tri-fecta. I mean really, what would Aidan O'Brien know about winning on turf in America, LOL. · 8 hours ago
.....this horse had greatness in front of him but an injury put him out
  • Stormy_Weather · I SURE WOULD HAVE LOVED TO SEE THIS COLT RUN HAD HE NOT GET INJURED HE WAS GOOD BUT..... His like you said the injury put him out had he not get hurt, DO YOU THINK HE HAD GREATNESS? I personally don't really know because he didn't get a chance to show it more · 13 hours ago
Than you dear horsie for Tepin!!!!! There is an old saying, "you gave as good as you got!!!" But you knocked it out of the park when you gave the world Tepin!!!
The third condition book of the meet is out and with it, the races on Extreme Day. In addition to camel, ostrich, and zebra races, there will be races such as the Dash In Flash stakes for quarter horses at 110 yards, the Spurt In the Dirt for thoroughbreds going two furlongs, the Grass Is Greener for horses who have never won on the grass, the Duck Race for maidens whose trainer hasn't won at the meet this year, the Ghost Race for horses that are gray or roan, and the famed Battle Of The Surfaces where horses will be running at the same time on turf and dirt. It will be held Saturday, July 16th.
  • MaryZinke via Disqus · Have fun with Extreme Day. I hope you get a big turn-out. I've only seen one video of the turf and dirt races run at the same time. Now, if they ran the turf race going the other way, that would be really extreme. Sounds like fun though. · 16 hours ago
