What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

POST TIME 7:39 PM EST – Today’s 9th race hints as loaded with value as the “obvious” may not live up to that label and others deserving attention may get overlooked.  First the pace analysis.  Rarely is it this clear but the favorite, #7 Sky Heart, possesses the early energy distribution ...Read More

Amino, i do not know if you watched the TV Series......The Untouchables , with Robert Stack. Listen closely to the race caller at Tampa Bay. Did this guy call dibbs on the voice,of the guy that did the narration on the TV show. To me , it is the same person. Very eerie.

Oh I'm excited for March 7th, my three Derby horses are running next week. Ocean Knight, Dortmund, and Carpe Diem. I hope all three run their hearts out. It will be fun to watch OK up in New York, Dortmund in California, and Carpe Diem making his 2015. Hopefully all three can get me an early birthday present, my birthday is on March 9th, I'll be celebrating with some family member at the Meadowlands. I'll be watching all three and try to win a few bucks at the same time. I can't wait for next week. I know for me, I'll hopefully be a very happy man when I wake up next Sunday.

  • hannahWTC1 · The Sheena Classic is looking very competitive this year! Excited to see Designs on Rome face off with Main Sequence · 1 hour ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · To me, if there is a knock on Designs On Rome heading to Meydan for the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic it's that he's been brilliant in Hong Kong racing at 9f/1800 meters & 10f/2000 meters but has only attempted tackling 12f/2400 meters once in the Champions & Chater Cup and he finished a well beaten 5th in that race. Whereas some of the other horses we might see in the race like Main Sequence, Cirrus Des Aigles, Harp Star, Flintshire, etc.....are all proven over the 12f/2400 meter trip. · 1 hour ago
Now confirmed: Kaleem Shah tell's DRF's Brad Free Dortmund WILL run in the San Felipe next Saturday at Santa Anita. This race just got a whole lot tougher for the competition. According to DRF
  • Goblin · Adding this here so as not to create a new thread. ;) HRTV/Zoe Cadman reported this A.M. that Dortmund was measured and weighed last week; he was 17.1 h. and 1280 lbs. Her source was Dana Barnes of the Baffert barn. · 3 hours ago
  • hannahWTC1 · Surprised that Dortmund is running, since Baffert has Lord Nelson pointed to the San Felipe as well. But now that Dortmund is running, the San Felipe is looking like the most competitive Derby prep yet! · 1 hour ago
Trainer Wesley Ward has confirmed to Churchill Downs Racetrack officials that The Great War is no longer a candidate for the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby and the track has suspended wagering on the colt.Read More
  • Bill B. via Disqus · Too bad. A shockingly bad performance by a horse I had some interest in, though there is no way on earth that I would have bet him at 2-5. On paper, there was reason to consider others who all went of at nice odds. Hope he's okay, but I don't see how he has much of a career ahead of him with his bleeding history. · 1 hour ago

Steve Asmussen also tell's DRF's Marcus Hersh that G2 winner Tapiture, who worked six furlongs in 1:12.60, will also ship to Oaklawn and he will make his 2015 debut on March 14th in the G3 Razorback, the same day Untapable in projected to run. Asmussen has had very high praise for Tapiture and believes he is ready to roll in two weeks. Article on DRF to be posted later today.
Steve Asmussen tells DRF's Marcus Hersh that Untapable, who breezed six furlongs in 1:12.20 on Sunday morning, will ship to Oaklawn to make her respective 2015 debut on March 14 in the G2 Azeri Stakes. Untapable has been receiving rave reviews from local onlookers as she prepares for her 2015 campaign -- which could be a really strong one. Article on DRF to be posted later today.

I'm beginning to womder if he will even start at Santa Anita...I have even checked Golden Gate (It's only a 6 hour van trip and they run multiple MSW and Starters Allowances every weekend)...Or maybe He won't start until john moves his barn back to Belmont in the Middle of April (normally April 19/20th so its only 45 days away)
  • tmallios via Disqus · Sara all you can do is show patience and trust Shirreffs. Believe me that they want this colt to run, "X" times more than the average fan. But his staying on the sidelines has got to tell you something. They will not race this colt,just for the sake of racing. They will never expose him to anything he is not ready to take on. · 3 hours ago
