What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

2-1 will be a gift on an undefeated horse. Like the 5/2 I got on Zenyatta back in 2009. His Pacific Classic come from mid pack is all I needed to see. This horse has "IT"....The will to win just like Z had and I have been on him since last November.
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.

  • vegasjim1952 · Not a new trainer Tom, Mike Mitchell retired and Phil was his assistant. Phil has said he is training as well as ever and yes he needs to break with field. I am using both him and Tom's Tribute and will look at the euros. · 30 minutes ago
  • cleclair1994 · Im looking at Seek Again. Has ran well all year. He got blocked badly on the rail in the Shadwell Turf Mile when he was coming. The problem is he likes being on the rail. He will need some luck to get it done. · 15 minutes ago
Coolmore has sold Cape Blanco to JBBA in northern Japan -- they they have enough Galileo representation, and Japan would like more...
  • ekindy · I thought I saw him on the November Fasig Tipton list. I guess they a good deal. · 4 hours ago
  • Northport · Apparently it is a two year lease, not a sale. I guess if his progeny start burning it up in North America he will return to Ashford at the end of his lease · 23 minutes ago
Charles Town Classic winner Imperative worked five furlongs Wednesday in 59.80 for trainer George Papaprodromou, who is readying the son of Bernardini for the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Apprentice Amelia Green was aboard for fractions of 24.20, 48 flat and a gallop out of 1:12.20 for six furlongs. “He was just cruising,” Papaprodromou said of the drill. Imperative was ridden by Kent Desormeaux in the Charles Town upset, but Papaprodromou said Thursday morning the mount was still open for the Classic as Desormeaux is “day to day” recovering from injuries suffered in a post parade mishap on Sept. 28.
  • The Doctor · Dettori's riding him in the Classic. He was already pretty far down the list of potential winners but this probably moves him right off the page. · 1 hour ago
  • travel_vic · Dettori and the myth associated with it is a creation of media plus excellent mounts, not greatness. Journeyman with great connections. · 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
  • travel_vic · Trillion dollar star? And here I thought the top winner ever in t-bred racing was Curlin at $10,501,800 · 2 hours ago

What a joke how Regally Ready was buried. Was this a pay back to Asmussen for embarrassing the industry?

For the first time in six years, the BC Mile will not be graced by either Goldikova or Wise Dan. What this field lacks in star power, though, it makes up for with depth and competitiveness.Read More

  • amino998 · Pointing to Richard Hannon Jr.’s decision to eschew boggy ground in England and wait for the Mile on firm ground as a knock seems odd. Had he run and then come over is one thing, but passing leaves his horse anything but over the top. · 1 hour ago
Anyone know where and when Mystery Train's next start will be? This horse has my interest. Such a hard runner.

Thursday's 5th race (3:00pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is a $56,000 Maiden Special Weight event for 2-year-olds traveling a mile and an eighth on the turf course (rail at 30 feet). #2 Pretentious (4-1) owns decent turf breeding, especially on the side, and Smith does business with Cassidy. He flashed...Read More

  • amdaman · A less outlandish one would be Toast of New York, but he should be in the 15-1 to 20-1 odds range. He'll certainly be an overlay at those odds. · 8 hours ago
  • outlaw11 · imagining in the turf. he will be on or near the lead and santa anita is generally very speed favoring. probably in the 30-1 range and shug is the king of longshots in graded turf races. he does not ship to california just to have a plane ride. also should consider abaco in the filly and mare turf another shug entry. she looked like the real deal earlier in her career but did not perform. her race a couple back was extremely impressive. passed the field in the stretch and looked like she was in hand. probably 50-1. · 3 hours ago
JJ put Wicked on the shelf, but is taking VE Day West Why?
  • jockey2be. · I'm guessing because Wicked Stong did not get a solid prep for the BCC... · 16 hours ago
  • ekindy · He probably also wants to make sure he is sound after the JCGC incident. You don't want to just go ahead and throw a horse into the biggest race of his life the race after he had his jockey ripped off of him. · 4 hours ago
