What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Champion Nyquist, who suffered his first defeat in last Saturday’s Preakness Stakes after eight straight victories including the Kentucky Derby on May 7, is doing well although he will miss the final leg of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes on June 11, due to a temperature that surfaced after soo...Read More
Pletch is going to send Strad to the front in the belmont and instruct Johnny V to run measured fractions. That is the way Pletch has always felt was the best way to win the Belmont. It is the way he ran Dunkirk a few years back and he tried the same with Materiality last year but Materiality just was not the horse. His daddy, M D'or had a big race here in the Belmont and I would not count out Strad here.
Had his first listed win today in the Heron Stakes! :) I'd love to see him go for a G3 or G2 next to give him a stepping stone, but they're being bold with him and sending him straight back into G1 territory again. Best of luck, Zonderland!
I feel like one of those callers on a sports radio show. Long-time listener -- First-time caller. For me, the listener part covers the more than four decades of following and loving thoroughbred horse racing. Now, finally, I got to make the call, and what a week it’s been as one of the investors in ...Read More
I would imagine with Mike Repole as his owner he will make an appearance in the Belmont Stakes.

It was announced earlier this week by Coolmore's UK representative, Kevin Buckley, that The Gurkha, who was an impressive 8 length winner of the French 2000 Guineas at Deauville will not go to Epsom to run in the Derby but will instead be sent to Royal-Ascot to run in the St James's Palace Stakes. A decision that I feel certain was made in large part due to Air Force Blue's back to back clunkers in the English & Irish 2000 Guineas. Buckley went on to say that Coolmore's 4 probable starters for the Derby at Epsom will likely be US Army Ranger, Port Douglas, Idaho, & Deauville. There's no way of knowing how well The Gurkha would or wouldn't handle the step up in trip to 2400m for the Derby, but he's certainly proven he's lethal at a mile and I think will be the horse to beat in the St James's Palace Stakes. His performance at Deauville translated over to Newmarket or the Curragh would've put multiple lengths on Galileo Gold in the English Guineas or on Awtaad in the Irish Guineas either one, IMO.
What about Whitmore, Mor Spirit, hell Danzig Candy could try get loose on the lead if he could rate. We are gonna end up with an 8 horse field I am afraid.
Man that was a terribly disappointing Derby for Creator. Can anyone find a reason for his poor performance that make someone believe he will be a bounce back in the Belmont??
Samuel F. Henderson’s Suddenbreakingnews, fifth in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (GI), began serious preparation for the June 11 Belmont Stakes (GI) with a five-furlong breeze in 1:00.60 on Monday with Joe Rocco, Jr. in the irons. Read More

If Mohaymen was here, he'd win. But I like DESTIN for 1st then Creator, Exaggerator , and Stradivari .

Hope they can ban this lunatic. She is a disgrace.
Just for kicks, I'll bet an all gray superfecta: Lani, Creator, Destin, Cherry Wine.
Looks like she worked 5/8 In 1.00 and 4/5
What an incredible comeback we new he was special... Been waiting over 6 months to see him do that...
Tapit's had been running well in the Belmont Stakes over the past 2 years.
Thursday's 6th race (4:20pm PT) from Golden Gate Fields is a $16,000 claiming event for 3-year-olds dashing six furlongs on Tapeta footing. #6 Deputy Dane (4-1) removes blinkers and switches surfaces for profitable route/sprint trainer Miyadi. He was 3rd to decent turf runner Canada after ...Read More
