What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Really ashamed what happened to Wicked Strong last weekend. If he is ok, i would really like to see him in the Classic. I am a Chromie but would really like to see WS have another chance after that disaster in the JCGC. Please rethink the decision on both horses if they are ok.
  • cedar · I trust Jerkins when he says WS came out ok, but agree with the decision to shelve him until 2015. He may not have been injured, but the ordeal could have taken more out of him than anyone thinks. Like Fort Larned last year dumping his rider at the gate in the GP Handicap followed by that poor performance in the Oaklawn, it's hard to judge the long term impact of these unfortunate events. · 1 minutes ago

  • geldedridgling · So far Santa Anita's new track seems to be fair, even on a big race day like last Saturday. That's good news for Tonalist and Zivo, who I think at this point are the most likely winners of the BCC. · 2 hours ago
  • draynay via Disqus · Tonalist wins.... he is HOY and 3 year old of the year. · 46 minutes ago
Victor Espinoza was punished by Santa Anita stewards for his ride in the Awesome Again. Did he deserve the seven day suspension?Read More

  • Barry via Disqus · Sorry, I dont see it that way. I think everyone should watch the backside head on view of the race. You will see Victor kept a straight line path the entire race, when the race matter. The first turn, even though Shared Belief was push wide, this happens every single race. That was a bias decision by the stewards. Certain on the last turn the SK if you look closely, Victor pull the colt reigns and took up to lose ground. At no time if watching the head on view did Victor turn and look at Mike riding Shared Belief as a targeted horse. The stewards are not correct with the decision. They are not mind readers and I would appeal. · 16 hours ago

this horse has what it takes to win the kentucky derby
Didn't know he was a ridgling.
Tuesday's 2nd race (12:52pm ET) from Parx is a Starter Allowance event for 3-year-olds and up dashing five and one-half furlongs on the main track. #6 Estrickator (6-1) earned the best last race number (2nd by a neck) in a 5f affair at Penn National Aug 16. He is a tough customer in these abbreviate...Read More

  • travel_vic · Sartin methodology rule, and one agreed to, IF the win odds are 9/2 or better, triple the place bet.. IF the win odds are lower than that, pass or stay with the win wager. · 11 hours ago ·
  • amino998 · Another simplistic yet rigid rule with a fixed price point. Basing said price {9/2 and above} on the win odds when wagering the bulk of one’s funds in the place pool isn’t smart {inteligente}. A 6 horse field and a 14 horse field would yield significantly different possibilities in the place pool as well. · 8 hours ago ·
Save for the margin of a scant nose, there could be three Breeders’ Cup winners running in next Saturday’s Grade I, $300,000, “Win and You’re In” Santa Anita Sprint Championship for 3-year-olds and up at six furlongs.Read More

  • geldedridgling · I'm not sure if Secret Circle is "faster" than Goldencents, seeing as Goldencents just set the track record for 7 furlongs at Del Mar and the fact that the Sprint Championship would be a cutback in distance for him. He's raced more recently and appears to be the horse to beat. Merit Man ran well at Del Mar but seems to be outclassed here. · 1 day ago
  • DANCERS1FAN · Goldencents can really fly but I think 6 furlongs is really too short for him. We will have to see I guess. Maybe another track record coming up! · 8 hours ago
Yes,I think Sunday is the day she'll show the haters how good she is. Did you all know she is entered in the LA Woman on the 4th ? Goooooooooo Debbie

Shared Belief overcame a lot to win this race. First 50+ mike Smith hit the ground hard in the previous race, that had to have a little effect, 50 year olds hit the ground a lot harder, at 30 mph, than 25 year olds, Second, it was obvious that whatever Smith did Espinosa was going to keep him out as long as he could, third, Fed Biz was allowed to set his fractions on the rail, fourth, Smith had to take SB back a little at the five sixteenths pole, and fifth, Imperative and Majestic Harbor are both good graded stakes horses. I would say, it's going to take something more and better to beat this guy in the BCC.
Believe me i really love this horse, i really do, but i kinda want him to lose the BCC, i'd rather see like Tonalist or Bayern or someone different i don't why but that's how i feel. i wish SB the best of luck but i would like to see him get beat. it'd make HOY honors all the more interesting

  • Michaelabelle · I like Shared Belief. I think he is a very good horse. But I am sick of the over hype and the constant pushing of this horse down my throat on racing sites. So I kind of hope some other horse wins. Nothing against Shared Belief really. I am just sick of being told how superfabulous he is based on very little. From the overhype, you'd think he had a record to equal Slew. He may turn out to be the greatest thing since Kelso over time, but right now he's a moderately tested three year old whose claim to fame is not having peaked early enough or raced enough against real competition to have lost or fallen out of favor. · 12 hours ago

Danza, where are you?
So Clement's Twitter account posted that he was running without medication, and I believe Clement was quoted as to why he didn't medicate him, but the Equibase chart shows him as being on Lasix...
This horse has no business in santa anita on breeders cup weekend. She has beat the same 4 horses in almost every race. Its almost like beating stable mates at this point.
Go secret circle in the SASC!
