What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Will be sidelined for a few months. He is set to undergo a minor knee operation at Rood & Riddle next week. There was heat in the joint and after an xray was taken a non displaced fracture was discovered in the upper portion of his left knee. He will be turned out at WinStar for 60-90 days. Hopes are to have him back at the barn by May- Per trainer M. Tomlinson.
Would like too give a shout out too deshawn parker on winning his 4700th career race last week and winning 14 mounts at sam Houston race coarse last week
  • travel_vic · always wondered when he would leave that West Virginia DUMP and ride a good track: only problem is Sam Huston Racing Park is only 1/95th a step above Mountaineer. · 25 minutes ago
unless you have a FIELD of horses with which to compare these two, YOU HAVE NO IDEA, who either of these two will wind up. Zip
Wednesday's 4th race (2:19pm MT) from Turf Paradise is a $16,000 claiming event for 4-year-olds and up traveling seven and one-half furlongs on the turf course (rail at 14 feet). #4 Red Pirate (9-2) rolled a pair of 4's in his last two main starts. He captured 2 of his last 3 local turf starts and r...Read More

If they ever go head to head it'll be hard fought whoever wins. They move differently, they have different rating habits but they're both fast, determined and talented horses. It'll be damn interesting that's for sure.
Also excited to see this one run, been waiting., kind of hate to see him way out in11.
  • Jbyrnes1 · I hope it doesn't affect him he's more of a mid pack horse, so maybe he can drop in, I'm so excited for Saturday it's not even funny!!! · 1 hour ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · Anne if he drew Post 16,it should not be a problem with this group. The great thing about this race will be that Kiaran will know if he does not have a Derby contender after the race. Unless he has a major excuse ,with a trouble line in the running. He is facing horses that ifthey ever get to any of the final Derby preps(100 pts to the winner). Other than O.K, there is not 1 horse that would be less than 20-1 in any of the preps. · 1 hour ago
Catalina Red will be tough here. Really loves the track. Question about how far he wants to go but 8.5F should be within his reach.
This past weekend marked my first ever voyage to the National Handicapping Championship at the Treasure Island in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event, run for the past sixteen years by the Daily Racing Form and the NTRA, is one of thoroughbred racing’s most coveted handicapping titles and the 2015 version ...Read More

CC Lopez will retain the mount aboard El Kabier in the G3 Withers Stakes next Saturday at Aqueduct, according to a tweet by Justin Zayat
  • https://www.facebook.com/john. · As a Monmouth guy who grew up watching CC.Lopez riding at the Jersey Shore, I am happy to see him on the Derby Trail this year with El Kabeir. Can't remember the last time he was on the Derby Trail, maybe Hey Byrn? · 1 hour ago
Shared belief worked six furlongs at goldengate in 1:11 today. That's a great work if he did it easy. I was thinking chrome would beat him by 5 lengths, maybe a hard worked 2 lengths now.
Ocean Knight draws post 11 of 12 for the Sam F Davis at Tampa Bay Downs. Go OC!!!!!!
  • Jbyrnes1 · Irad Ortiz Jr will ride OC!!!!! · 2 hours ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · The most optimistic news of your post,just may be that Irad is traveling with the Horse. Looks as though he does not want to lose him. He is very promising. Ran a hole in the wind his first time out. Based on his spotty spacing leading up to the race.I doubt he was as tight as could be.Should be top notch come Sat. · 2 hours ago

There is one problem i see with this guy, his dad sires precocious 2 YO'S but they flop at the age of three
  • Pebbles via Disqus · Well, this is only his third crop of three year olds. In his second year, he had Cairo Prince was one of the top Derby prospects after his second place finish in the G2 Nashua, G2 Remsen Stakes and his win in the G3 Holy Bull before he was injured and retired. He also had Vinceremos at 3 won the Sam Davis and was second in the Tampa Bay Derby. His best racing occurred at 3. Midnight Storm also won the G2 Del Mar Derby at 3. Hopefully, American Pharoah will make you a true believer in this son of Empire Maker when all is said and done. · 3 hours ago
Belle Gallantey has been entered in the Ladies Handicap at Aqueduct on Saturday and depending on how she runs, this could be her last race, article on DRF
Too bad Bayern will not be able to make it. It should still be an excellent race.
Hopefully Frosted just needed a race and he keeps moving forward. As expected, it looks like the race could have even more talent in it than the Holy Bull.
