What the Nation is saying about the 2011 Peter Pan (G2)...

Quietly, one of the best performances on an excellent Saturday of racing took place in Oaklawn Park’s Essex Handicap. On paper the race looked like it would be Pin Oak Stable’s Alternation to lose. Although 2011 became largely a season of unfulfilled potential for the attractive son of Distorted Hum...Read More
  • Winplacsho · It's nice to see Alternation back, it seemed like he fell off the map after that subpar effort in the Jim Dandy. I agree that this horse is similar to Blame in a couple of ways: running style, under the radar by being midwest based & no triple crown starts as a 3 year old. · 800 days ago ·
“My top dark horse right now. Breeding is great, and I love the way he looks down the stretch of his races.

  • MarkRodriquez · Nothing, I don't know much about them. I'm questioning the fact that the "So Called" horse racing press never asks the top trainers tough questions. Why don't you ask, "Mr Pletcher, can you explain why the average horse in South America and Austrailia gets over 20 starts a year and the average horse in America gets less than 10?" · 1065 days ago ·
Alternation opened the door for a possible start in the June 11 Belmont Stakes as he outkicked favored Adios Charlie through the final yards to win Saturday’s 57th edition of the Grade 2, $200,000 Peter Pan at Belmont Park. Read More
A return to the Hollywood Park turf course was all Acclamation needed to get back to the winner’s circle. The 5-year-old California bred became the second repeat winner of the $150,000 Jim Murray Memorial Handicap Saturday, easily disposing of four rivals. Ending a four race losing streak, Acclamat...Read More

The top three finishers from last Saturday’s Jerome Stakes all appear headed in different directions. The winner, Adios Charlie, is likely to make his next start in the Grade 2, $200,000 Peter Pan Stakes at Belmont on May 14. Astrology, the runner-up, is being considered for the Preakness at Pimlico...Read More
