  • bennings via Disqus · While not a longshot by strict standards, one of my best bets on Saturday is Leigh Court to win the F/M Sprint - she should be 6-1 or higher. Her comeback race was on the brilliant side at WO. She set the fractions in that 7f poly race and looked like a champion in the stretch. She validated that race with a cut-back to 6fs on the dirt at KEE where she showed the ability to stalk and pounce. It was her first dirt race since the first two races of her career at the FG. I think 7fs is a better distance for her than 6fs. She was definitely on the muscle in her latest, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't have some concerns about how that effort can be translated back to the 7f distance, which is truly a specialty distance. At the same time, I don't want to over-think it. If the odds are there, I have to trust that the trainer knows what buttons to push to have her on her best game (her best will win this race). · 12 hours ago
  • Mary Z. · Longshot in the Turf Classic, One of those "if he gets in" horses. Not for the win; more like fourth. Starspangled Heat. Was a hill runner, now a longer router. To put it in human language, not technically, he saves his hill run for very late in the race. Consider for bottom of supers. · 6 hours ago

  • Chris 'smiler' Webb via Disqus · I would put the Australian group horses at the same level as our English groups as many times Australia has invaded with their horses and beat the best that Europe had to offer black caviar being an example the highest rated horse in the world last year · 1 hour ago

I was priviledged to be among the fans at the Shadwell Turf Mile for Keeneland's million dollar race...won by a trillion dollar STAR WISE DAN. if people were more like Wise Dan what a world we would have!1
What a joke how Regally Ready was buried. Was this a pay back to Asmussen for embarrassing the industry?
Really curious to see how this horse runs on dry fast track...
Wednesday's 8th race (10:16pm CT) from Remington Park is a $7,500 claiming event for OK-bred fillies and mares which have never won two races. They will be traveling seven furlongs on the main track. #2 Classy Talent (8-1) flashed speed and faded to 5th vs. this kind Sept 19 and the top three finish...Read More

Won yesterday at Zia Park. Didn't know he was still racing...
Just breezed through the entries of all the BC Races. Noticed that this guy has been entered in the Turf Sprint down the hill . He just might be the best bet on the Card. He almost looks to easy in this race. He has shown amazing speed going longer distances. Chalk this one up.

Looking at the Turf Mile and this guy is starting to look like a major play in this race. In looking at the field, there is only 1 horse in the race that can put any pressure on this guy on the front end due to his running style across the pond. That would be Toronado. But in looking at replays of his races,he is not the send them type runner. Therefore , Obviously will be "Loose as a Goose" in here. In his last he was never prepared for the start,yet he still got the lead. Just need this guy to keep his head straight in the gate. He has run speed figures that wins this race. A major plus and i have no idea it is because of a new trainer. In the past 2 years they ran him in the Prep for this race,that was 3 weeks earlier. This guy has always run in this race as a short horse. He was never at his best. Finally they gave him a breather and he is coming in as fresh as can be. Like i said,do not blink or let this guy get loose.

  • tmallios via Disqus · If he gets away clean, there is not 1 horse that i would worry about. Even at the 2nd wire. · 8 hours ago
couldn't agree more,horse won't win every race 2nd place in a bigger race would be better than winning a lesser race, his time on oct.19th race was 4/5ths faster than stakes race on oct.18th, horse is a good one,make hay while you can
Looks tough in the Bold Ruler!

Breeders' Cup ought to be renamed the Bleeders' Cup. Nearly every horse entered will be running on Lasix. That is awful.
  • ekindy · That doesn't mean they're bleeders, it means they are trying to level the playing field. Which needs to stop of course, it really is to the point where the major racetracks have to just say no Lasix for anyone, and bleeders will have to stay home. · 16 hours ago
  • amino998 · Some are bleeders. "Major racetracks" would indicate some sort of 2 tier system ekindy? Finding the dividing line would be quite the fight. · 9 hours ago
