If there is one horse to watch from yesterday, it's JJ's Unlucky Train. He got caught wide and had a bunch of trouble in the Haskell. Look out for him next time.
  • ajump08 · He'll have to shorten up though, simply can't get the distance. · 1735 days ago
  • BrianZipse · I agree with both of you ... he is a really nice horse, but best at under 9 furlongs. · 1735 days ago
who ever will win, it must be class horse,
it is really hard for decision to pick up the Haskell winner, there are so many factor is involved, Shackleford now is not sharp as used to be in kentucky derby and preakness, so i am not sure whether he can perform like before, that's why bookies are given 5/2 odds, i do'nt think that if he has a chance to win the Haskell , his price will be 1-1/4.
but i still think that Pants on Fire or Ruler on Ice have a great chance to win the Haskell if Shackleford become tired after fighting for the lead either with Coli or Pantas on fire, just like to day in Jim Dandy the fight between Dominus and Will's Wildcat for the lead, it gave fullest advantages to Stay Thirsty and Moonshine Mullin.
it will be very interesting to see the Haskell run, three horses Shackleford, coil and pantas on fire will be the the 3 leadres at thye same time, it will reduce the chance of winning Haskell both of the 3 horses, wtey will be fightng stage and two other horses Ruler on Ice and Astrology will fluke through them. it is very difficult to oin point the winner in these circumstances.
although i selected Shackleford, but after seeing Belmont Stakes repeayedly, i have now 30% reservations for Ruler on ice, if he follows the shackleford like he did in the belmont stakes, he has a pretty good chance to defeat Shackleford, his pedigree is superb Roman Ruler out of Fuschicas Pegasgus, very strong sire far better that Foresters.
it is the SHACKLEFORD! 100%
The Haskell should be another great running this year. The field should shake out in the next couple weeks and look for both Pants on Fire and Ruler On Ice to take a shot in here. Trainer Kelly Breen and the Hall's would love nothing more than to win at their home track.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYBODY THATS RUNNING
This looks like a very talented field.I wonder who else will be in there.

  • racecaller · Hopefully it comes together. The crop is crumbling a bit right now... Animal Kingdom won't start until the fall, same with Mo. Shackleford can probably take down the division just by staying healthy! · 1775 days ago
  • RamonDimas · THATS TRUE A VERY TALENTED FIELD...BUT ONLY ONE CAN BE THE WINNER.............WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO WIN THIS RACE? · 1772 days ago
LETS HOPE THAT KINGDOM DOESNT COME AGAIN FOR REVANGE ON RULER ON ICE AND SHACKLEFORD!!!
TIME FOR ANOTHER SHOWDOWN BETWEEN RULER ON ICE AND SHACKLEFORD!!!
What will this year's Haskell hat look like? Do you like black?
If these great animals all show up on July 31st it will be a very memorable Haskell! I will be in Avalon NJ for vacation that weekend so I may have to make the 100 mile trek north to see the rematch of the greats!
