Pants on Fire is special to Rosie, and the way he looked yesterday, he may be ready to step up and move right to the top of his class. His stablemate won the Belmont, but it is Pants on Fire who is primed to be the star of the second season. One of the key races in the second half is the $1,000,000 ...Read More

  • Waya · Was at Monmouth Saturday, and this is one physically impressive horse! Someone will have to run a monster race to best him in the Haskell I think. · 1030 days ago ·

George and Lori Hall’s Pants on Fire gained command around the far turn and held off the late charge of Concealed Identity to capture the Grade 3, $200,000 Pegasus Stakes at Monmouth Park on Saturday.Read More
  • MichaelPavelick · Sometimes you just got be a man. This is the 2nd race in a row that I felt was going to be a workout for a horse and the horse ended up winning. Both times it was a case of the field being easy enough that the trainer must have felt that the horse wouldn't have to overextend himself to win. Pants on Fire (2 four furlong works not enough) & Midnight Interlude (no grass works) didn't fit my precepts. I would rather watch a horse win and NOT wager then wager and watch it lose. Particularly at even odds or less. · 1032 days ago ·
