  • Exterminator · I believe that it would be Ensign 10 out of 10 times. She, as an unbeaten Thoroughbred, was the definition of perfection. She beat all the colts that dared to face her in the Whitney, and put away Gulch, who won two Met Miles and a BC Sprint. She beat a Derby winner twice, including the Distaff at Churchill in which Winning Colors was loose on the lead. She also ran down an Oaks winner that day. · 5 hours ago
  • LauraS via Disqus · Absolutely agree with Dr Fager being first. He was nearly unbeatable from 6 to 10 furlongs - only double-teaming him with a rabbit worked. He carried some serious weight too. One of the best ever. · 2 hours ago

Not wanting to rush the two-time reigning Horse of the Year, trainer Charles LoPresti has elected to bypass the Grade 2 Fourstardave Handicap on August 9 with Wise Dan and await the Grade 2, $250,000 Bernard Baruch Handicap, Grade 1, $600,000 Woodward, or Grade 1, $1 million Woodbine Mile.Read More
  • Ash via Disqus · Woodward would certainly be a tough comeback race. But why are people pushing for him to race on the dirt? He has a $600k dirt race or a $1mil grass race. It's really not a hard choice, especially considering the gelding has but one loss on turf. · 2 hours ago
He coming to america to race in the million woooooooo love arlington
who called this race? sounds like Dave Johnson; i'm almost sure.
Del Mar Racetrack ‏@DelMarRacing We have decided to end sprints and claiming races on the turf. Reducing the meet's turf races by 33%.
  • Northport · In my opinion I think this is a good move. Some people have said the turf track is like concrete, but many others have said the turf is fine. What seems to be a huge factor is the fact that as a boutique meet, many owners want to have a horse running during Del Mar, thus claiming is huge at the beginning of the meet as many trainers unload their slow and unsound horses. · 3 hours ago
This Colt Broke His Maiden at ELLIS PARK on the Turf....Very Impressive!!
I was reading on-line earlier where trainer Aidan O'Brien was saying a little concerned about Venus De Milo running over the shorter trip of 10f in the G1 Nassau Stakes on Saturday because the best of her career form to date has been at 12f. But really, her form lines the couple of times she's raced at 10f hasn't been too shabby either. She won the listed Naas Oaks Trial at 10f last season in her Irish Oaks prep, and in her most recent start ran a very good 2nd behind Thistle Bird in the G1 Pretty Polly Stakes in Ireland. With Thistle Bird out of the Nassau Stakes and there being no proven G1 winners in the field, I think Venus De Milo will take some beating. Her form is solid right now, having also won the G3 Munster Oaks Stakes over 12f at Cork in Ireland prior to the Pretty Polly Stakes.
The 38th running of the Grade I $500,000 Secretariat Stakes is shaping up as a fine affair, with players from multiple regions of the United States, as well as Europe. One who may be overlooked is Ninety North Racing Stable’s Sheldon - a talented son of late stallion Purim, who himself won the Grade...Read More

Interesting renewal of the G1 Nassau Stakes on Saturday in that this is the 1st time I can remember the race not having even one filly or mare in the field that's already a G1 winner, so one of these filly/mares is gonna break their Group 1 cherry on Saturday at Goodwood! My Nassau Stakes super-fecta: 1st-Venus De Milo 2nd-Sultanina 3rd-Narniyn 4th-Mango Diva.
This horse raced last Saturday at Delmar and won! Anyone know why the race is not list in the results below? Thanks
