What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

I like Florida Won at 12-1 ml odds. Liked his win in the Ontario Derby two starts back at Woodbine. Out of Birdstone, he should be able to handle the distance. Also like the veteran Pender Harbour at 6-1 ml odds. Liked his two starts this year. He seems to be rounding into his old form and always dangerous on third start off a layoff.

After much searching I may have found a photo of Wild Coco's first filly on this page: http://www.geocities.jp/lordlady/newpage28.html The photos were apparently taken on a tour of K. I. Farm's residents, including the foals. There are several Lord Kanaloa foals at the top out of Lady Artist, Star Collection, Lady Carnival, Lady Rouge (that's the colt kicking out his front legs), Lady Ballad, Spinning Wildcat, Eight Days Apart, Shinmei Fuji, and Angelic Ray. Underneath that is the Frankel foals - out of Perfect Tribute, Half Moon, and Wild Coco's filly who gets a full space with two photos underneath the other two. Wild Coco will be visiting Lord Kanaloa for 2015.
Up to 10 furlongs Dortmund's a great horse. He's the gold standard of what a breeders ideal foal is today (a horse that can dominate the two year old distances and maybe go 1 1/4 for the Derby). I even picked him to beat AP in the Derby. Obviously in the Derby both AP and Frosted proved to be better horses at a mile and a quarter but if the track was fast at the Preakness I'm convinced Dortmund could have given AP a run for his money. If Dortmund and Frosted both run in the 9 furlong Jim Dandy that's shaping up to be an awesome race as both colts won their 9 furlong Derby preps in style.
  • unbridled_68 · I think Dortmund has the edge over Frosted going 9 furlongs especially on a fast track. Hope they both run well though. · 3 hours ago

  • Bill B. via Disqus · This is really so sad. I remember when he first started on TVG. He was like a kid in a candy store he was so enthusiastic about taking on this new job. He's such a likable & knowledgeable guy. There are some good commentators on TVG, though not all, but he is among their best as is Paul LoDuca who brought tears to my eyes with his emotional and clearly deeply felt commentary. · 18 hours ago

Wow! What a bullet workout! 5F in 1:00:10? Amazing! 1/12
  • SeattleStrike12 via Disqus · Very fast workout over the big sandy, i think he will end up running in a race at belmont during the fall. I also do think that there will be a different running position because last is not his spot, I have the feeling he ran that fast to prove he could be a front runner · 15 hours ago
This race just showed how lucky we are to have such a quality older division this year and especially these two horses. It shows how special they both are by how far ahead they finished ahead of the field. They both are phenomenal horses and I hope they meet up again. Shared Belief and Chrome are awesome! Some of the best we have seen in awhile

Fox Hill Farms' Normandy Invasion, away from the races for more than a year in part because of a fractured right front sesamoid, is scheduled to return in a $36,000 allowance event July 1 at Delaware Park. Trained by Larry Jones, Normandy Invasion, a 5-year-old Tapit horse with second-place finishes in three graded stakes, has been working nicely at Delaware Park, where Jones is based for the summer. He most recently breezed one mile in 1:38 3/5 on a fast track June 22. "He has been training well," Jones said June 25. Article on Bloodhorse

  • Bill B. via Disqus · The writer is getting a little carried away here. This was not even remotely an "incredible" rendition of the Gold Cup. So-so field for a Grade I, slow time, unimpressive Beyer and a win and your in winner who will be over his head should they take that route. Good ride by Espinoza though. He's the reason this horse won. Thought Catch a Flight might be special, but maybe not. · 1 day ago
  • MaiyaDay via Disqus · An incredible ride by Espinoza. Any other trip, or even any other head bob at the wire and Hoppertunity gets this race. Even rewatching the race knowing that Hard Aces won, it looks like Hoppertunity got there first. · 13 hours ago
Although their is no official race pointed out for American Phaorah yet, it appears Ahmed Zayat has narrowed it down to two. When asked by TDN for American Pharoah's next start, Zayat added, We have no races chosen at the moment; it's between the [Aug. 1] GII Jim Dandy and the [Aug. 2 GI] Haskell Invitational.

  • SeattleStrike12 via Disqus · She is back! I respected this filly very much, and at 1 point thought that if she ran against the boys in a big race at a mile to 1 mile and an 1/8, She could beat them, not of AP caliber but high caliber horses · 15 hours ago
I personally think that Dortmund will turn into a handicap racer, he seems built more for handicapping as a big horse has a bit of an advantage over a smaller horse in a handicap race

  • Jim Fields via Disqus · Crucero's win validates a theory I have had for a long time. Sound horses usually recover very quickly from a race. Jiggy-joggers do it all the time successfully. I once ran eight horse on a ten race card, and five of them won, with two seconds and a fourth (the fourth was a 3-5 favorite and got left in the gate by ten lengths. A young jockey by the name of Twe Lian rode four of those winners for me. The interesting thing is, that four of those five winners, had ran the day before. That was not a normal regimen, but it was the last day of a winter race meet, and we wouldn't be running for another three months, and opportunity knocked and we got lucky, but I have ran a couple of horses on consecutive days, and they always ran better the second day. Maybe, the only ones we hear about, are the successful ones. · 15 hours ago
