What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Palace Malice fans everywhere felt a sudden burst of adrenaline when today’s press release from Dogwood hit the presses.Read More
  • rogueclown · very well said. i'm trying not to get my hopes up until the vet exam...but i really hope to see Palace Malice running again, and i'm so glad Three Chimneys is amenable to the possibility of him racing again before he goes off to stud. · 1 hour ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · How can a horse who was not supposed to race past the age of 4 be returning now to race. Seems to me that they need to re-establish value in the horse. Sort of like sweeping away the past and starting amew. No more Cupcakes like this year nest year. They need to go for the Jugular and attack the big races only. The Cupcake route sure did not work out this year. If it did, Three Chimneys would of had a sire they thought was ready to hit the open market. All they did here was make an investment. One they hope will somehow be like a fine wine. That is improve with age. · 8 minutes ago

Will Take Charge, who clinched Champion 3-Year-Old Male honors last year with a win at Churchill Downs in the $550,700 Clark Handicap Presented by Norton Healthcare (Grade I), was retired to Three Chimneys Farm on Sunday due to a mild strain to a branch of his suspensory apparatus.Read More

  • hannahWTC · He must be very valuable as a stallion prospect. He is Blue Blood through and through and is a rare horse in that he is unbelievably durable. In a racing state where horses break down after 2 or 3 starts, he ran 11 times in one year. And his thrilling performances as a multiple G1 winner and you have a great stallion. If he can reproduce the likes of himself he will be one heck of a sire · 1 hour ago

  • Hannah Etienne via Disqus · I think she should go to the Distaff. She definitely ran the best race in the Cotillion. On a speed favoring track (I know Untapable wasn't leading but got first run at the leaders and was much closer to the front.), she almost pulled off the win after Untapable veered in her way during the stretch. And I think 1 1/8 is in her comfort zone because she seemed to just be striding out at the end of the Cotillion. She is the only filly this year to really push Untapable, and she is still improving. I think she has a great shot to take home the money in the Distaff · 1 hour ago

  • Pick6Sam · I think the Turf Writers Association / DRF & Bloodhorse do not want to see California Chrome win HOTY and perhaps 3 year old champ. I'm sure they are all hoping for Shared Belief to win the Classic or say Bayern. After that red-faced rant about handicap children and basketball and the Triple Crown entree rules need to changed, yada yada yada from CC's part owner - Steve Coburn I don't see the horse wining any Eclipse award. Its a shame cause the horse don't know nothing but training and racing and it human connections no nothing about the history of the sport. When you rag about how things have been done since forever on national live TV, your in for it. I'm not a Kentucky hard-boot but that ticked me off some. · 9 hours ago
  • cugel the clever · Wicked Strong will win the JCGC and the BCC. With those wins, he will deservedly take best 3yo honours. He will be 1-1 against CC but his victory will be in a tougher race. He will be 1-0 against SB. You can't give HOY to a horse who lost badly in his last 3 races of the season against his peers (as will happen to CC). · 2 hours ago

  • tmallios via Disqus · Unfortunately this could be one of the weakest JCGS's in memory. There really is not a legitimate headliner or depth in the quality. Yes we have the Belmont /Jim Dandy and Travers winner to headline the 3yos'. But they are all 1 hit wonders to date. They are one and outs. The older horses are in worse shape in regards to Quality. The Awesome Again is no different. I guess what i am saying is that Racing is in a sad state of affairs when we are talking the Creme DeLa Creme of Horses. · 2 hours ago
CC is not going to win the bc classic/shared belief and close hatches should be the finalists for Hoyt /close hatches has outperformed everyone/top pick/nov 1 / shared belief can win the bc classic just as long as he doesn't run into anyone coming around the last turn/2 great horses/if wise Dan gets the award again I think I'll puke/
Indiana Derby next stop.
to bad he broke his back in a riding accident
Regarding: Press release issued regarding sale of 1-2 interest of Palace Malice to Three Chimneys indicates he could return to training in 2015, Palace Malice to undergo vet exam 11/15. If racing sound, campaigns in 2015 w/ Pletcher. Upon retirement, @Three_Chimneys assumes ownership, should everything go right, HE'S COMIN BACK BABY!!!!!!! WHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

  • Goblin · I'm seeing a 50% interest being sold, with examination by veterinary panel on 11/15. If the bone bruise is completely healed, then that's a win/win situation for Dogwood and Three Chimneys. Interesting that they acquired WTC and now Palace Malice---I thought PM might go to Lane's End. Whether he's able to race again or not, Three Chimneys has made a favorable deal with the acquisition of 100% at actual retirement. · 6 hours ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · This is why Cot is a buisiness man supreme. He pulled the plug on racing to maintain his value in the Breeding Shed . When Cot did not get the deal he wanted,guess those rumors of multiple farms were far fetched. Cot took the best deal for 50 % of the horse. Now he will bring him back next year to race again. A very smart move in doing so. I am sure that there is already a contingency deal on the other 50% of the horse should he do "X". The positive here is that with a 50% partner, the insurance premiums will not be as hard to swallow. Expect the same kind of Racing Schedule next year, not as front loaded. Their main goal will be the BC Cup. Job well done Cot. Not to many manage the stables better than you. · 5 hours ago
will return Friday in Race 8 at SA in allowance race going 6 1/2 furlongs, post 4
omg love big red California chrome almost won the triple crown to bad he lost :(
this is a filly, not a colt
Om
Thanks for that --too bad he looked awesome ---
Look Shared Belief can win the awesome again, classic, and clark and still has no shot at 3 year old honors end of story

  • Northport · If Chrome doesn't bounce back from his Penn Derby 6th place and Shared Belief wins the Awesome Again and Classic, SB will absolutely take 3 y/o honours. Eclipse voters have a very short memory, a horse that flashes brilliance at the end of the season can (and often do) trump the accomplishments of those made earlier in the season. Just ask Orb, Game on Dude, Princess of Sylmar, etc. · 1 day ago

Funny, everybody's claiming shared belief to be so good but this guy never got mentioned.
2012 Kentucky oak winner Believe You Can to be offered at Fasig November sale by Airdrie Stud, in foal to leading sire Tapit.
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.

  • buds · of coarse she is fast she is outa Curlin, she should also be able to handle the dirt at santa anita (curling could run on pebbles). Still not sold on the 6.5 furlong decision perhaps the connections want 15-1 on Breeders cup day and want to bet the farm! · 9 hours ago
