I was at Chantilly in 1980....what a beautiful racetrack....I hope it is still that way. A Shin Hikari was totally dominant.
QUOTE: 'a race between Wise Dan, Solow and Tepin would have been incredible to see!" Your English teacher failed to teach you that you can ONLY be BETWEEN two things, over that you are AMONG them. the young know more about the stupid cell phone than how to converse with one another. Wise Dan still holds the track record here at the mile and did it EASILY.

1 1/8m sounds like a good fair distance. I know 7 horses that I would love to see in the race, they are: Beholder California Chrome Exaggerator Nyquist Songbird Solow (a superstar on turf but he will handle fast dirt no problem) *American Pharoah *AP needs to be brought out of retirement for this one race, train him up and lets see IF he really can beat the BEST of the BEST. :-)
  • reshuffler · No offense to you, but are you crazy? There is no way on this earth the AP would be brought out of retirement. Also, Solow may be a good turf horse, but what even gives you the slightest idea that he would be able to best the top american dirt horses? · 1 hour ago
WOW, this horse is a beast, can't wait to see him at Royal Ascot. Very excited about it. :-D
What a great turf horse this was, what a shame we couldn't see him compete in the BC Mile in 2014 and win his 3rd one!!! Damn, a race between Wise Dan, Solow and Tepin would have been incredible to see!
The rednecks must have loved this horse!!! ha ha
When and where are we gonna see Obviously next?? I am guessing the G1 Shoemaker Mile? the race he won last year.
Has there been any news on him lately?
Mark Casse announces that Catch a Glimpse will face the boys in G3 $500k Penn Mile June 4 at Penn National.

  • Cedar · Fans need to thank Casse for his willingness to try his fillies in tougher spots against the boys. He has some very talented runners in his barn and he has done such a great job with them and he is really rewarding us fans by giving them these shots. CAG isn't the 'flashiest' winner but she sure gets the job done every single time. · 5 hours ago
  • andthey'reoff · I'm mixed on this one. While I think she can beat the boys, I think that the Penn Mile doesn't fit her. If I were team Casse, I'd run her in the Pennine Ridge or the American Derby or possibly the Belmont Derby. My congrats to Penn National though. Also, entries for the Honor The Hero come out Friday. If any of the big horses come, I'll pass that along to you. · 2 hours ago
I was wrong about Destin in the Kentucky Derby. With 5 weeks layoff (instead of 8), I'm picking him again to win the 2016 Belmont Stakes. Destin/Exaggerator/Suddenbreakingnews/Brody's Cause.
  • hoof_hearted666 · Have you ever seen a Belmont field jam packed with closers/deep closers?? Destin could definitely be the pace horse in the race, and if he sets fast but sensible fractions, he could steal the Belmont. But does he have the ability to hold off the late charges of Exaggerator, Suddenbreakingnews and Brody's Cause??? It's doubtful, but not impossible. · 3 hours ago
Has been retired. Per Bloodhorse
Connections should really consider putting Gun Runner in the Belmont, there's no Nyquist to worry about now, and where is the pace in the race?? Gun Runner could lead, and set fast but sensible fractions, he could dominate and steal the race from the front!!! There's a very big prize on offer, and Gun Runner could take the winners share, IF he can hold off Exaggerator in the stretch (which is doubtful, but not impossible). :-)
best freshman sire ever?
Here's the story with Nyquist. O’Neill said that Nyquist has an elevated white blood-cell count and that his temperature, after returning to normal Monday afternoon, was up to 101.2 degrees mid-morning Tuesday. His normal temperature is 100.3, O’Neill said. O’Neill said that Nyquist would be put on stronger antibiotics to treat the illness and that he would return to California when he’s healthy. O’Neill said he is not sure where or when Nyquist would return, but he did say he hoped the horse could run this summer at Saratoga, in either the Jim Dandy on July 30 or the Travers on Aug. 27.

  • Mark Kennedy via Disqus · I was berated fir saying this but I'll state it again. High white blood cell count is not a good sign. It's not something you just get over. I would be surprised if he's ready again to go long in the Travers. I think it will be repeat like father and maybe the Kings bishop · 6 hours ago
Breaking news Dortmund just has his first timed work 3 furlongs 39:20
In light of the results of the first two Triple Crown races, I would propose we reopen the debate surrounding Uncle Mo's distance limitations which ended for some people with Nyquist's victory in the Kentucky Derby. My opinion has never wavered. I had doubts about Uncle Mo's distance ability as a racehorse; I have those same doubts regarding his progeny. There is no question that Nyquist handled the classic distance of the Derby and Preakness, finishing first and third, but the performances of the other Uncle Mo babies were not as impressive. In the Derby, Mo Tom finished a nonthreatening eighth and Outwork finished fourteenth. In the Preakness, Laoban was sixth, Uncle Lino, seventh and Abiding Star, eleventh and last. What I take away from this is that Nyquist proved HIS ability, not his sire's. And what worries me even more is the possibility that Nyquist's greatest strength is his guts. Did he handle the distance through talent or determination? I think we might have seen a horse, much like California Chrome, who has simply outrun his pedigree. It will be interesting to watch as the Uncle Mo crop continues to reach the races.

  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · overeaction. Having 2 Gr 1 winners from your 1st crop at 1 1/8 or longer is rare (and there's still a possibility that there will be more). Nyquist has proven that above his DNA he has the heart and talent to win races at distances from 5f to 1 1/4. · 9 hours ago
  • Pebbles via Disqus · You are wrong, wrong and wrong. Uncle Mo had no distance limitations. He had durability issues. And connections that wanted to get him into the breeding shed ASAP. He had the beginnings of a stomach illness which kept him out of racing for months that was discovered after his 3rd place Wood Memorial performance. His preps for the Breeders Cup Classic off his illness layoff in no way prepared him for the 10 furlongs at Churchill Downs. However, there was nothing to be gained by running him in the BC Dirt Mile since he had already run a 118 BSF in the Kelso at a mile. So they entered him in the Classic. This was the same for Honor Code. In the Dirt Mile he might have been better, but he had already won the Met Mile at a quick time so there was nothing to be gained by it. It would be his sire's last chance to win a BC Classic. Uncle Lino finished 7th because he went lame in the stretch. I was there and he was taken off the track in a horse ambulance. Outwork was a young horse who they were asking a lot of. The Derby was his 4th career race. It was asking a lot. But he was a Wood winner. · 7 hours ago
Nyquist out due to a fever....what a shame....!
  • MaryZinke via Disqus · Yes, it is. I hope he races again. Bad if a Derby winner doesn't have further wins. · 7 hours ago
Santa Anita 5/23/2016 Dirt 6F 1:17.60 Handily 7/7
In his last 2 starts, A Shin Hikari couldn't have been more impressive if was Winged Pegasus himself. First, he travels to Sha Tin and from gate to wire just about galloped the field bowlegged in winning the G1 Hong Kong Cup. Then he travels to France and completely annihilates the G1 Prix d'Ispahan field by 10+ lengths, on heavy ground no less, against a field that included the likes of New Bay, Dariyan, Erupt, Vadamos, Mondialiste, Silverwave, My Dream Boat, & Wild Chief. Look out Royal-Ascot, because this horse is 100% for real.
