What the Nation is saying about the 2011 Rachel Alexandra (G3)...

The Winterbook favorite for the Queen's Plate, Inglorious puts her undefeated Woodbine record on the line in the 1 1/8-mile Woodbine Oaks.Read More
  • zatt · I have been a big fan since Inglorious broke her maiden in a stakes race last fall, and I like her chances in the Woodbine Oaks tomorrow, but I must admit, it came up tough. Obviously Bear It's Time and Roxy Gap are strong fillies, but Marketing Mix looks especially intriguing to me. · 1050 days ago ·
While there was little in the way of Kentucky Oaks caliber racing taking place last weekend this weekend features two fields of fillies that are more than capable of making the grade in the big dance. Inglorious is the big cheese running this Saturday but before we get to the races a few things have...Read More
  • KyOaksRunner · Also forgot to mention that R Betty Graybull is running in the 1 1/8 mile Ladies Handicap at Aqueduct on Saturday. · 1122 days ago ·
Kathmanblu has left no doubt as to whom America’s leading sophomore filly is in 2011, regardless of the surface. To start out the year she came from well off the pace to win the Sweetest Chant Stakes on the turf and on Saturday she took control of the Rachel Alexandra Stakes (gr.3) at the head of th...Read More

  • KyOaksRunner · I love It's Tricky, unfortunately I haven't been able to see her race yet and I didn't want to list her without having been able to see it for myself but she has been on my "dark horse list" since her last win. I think she has a lot of potential and I love the way she draws off when she wins. · 1152 days ago ·
  • KyOaksRunner · Oh and by the way, I absolutely love her pedigree! · 1152 days ago ·
Five D Thoroughbreds & Wind River Stables’ Kathmanblu, making her first start on dirt as a 3-year-old, established herself as a serious contender for the Grade I Kentucky Oaks with a convincing 1 ¼-length win over Donver Stables’ Inglorious in Saturday’s Grade III Rachel Alexandra Stakes for 3-y...Read More
  • mdracing69 · Kathmanblu did what she had to do but was hardly scintilating and will have to run much faster to be considered a serious Oaks threat. For comparison purposes, the Mineshaft was run in 1:43.45 (99 BSF), the Risen Star in 1:43.98 (94 BSF), and the Rachel Alexandra in 1:45.13. · 1154 days ago ·
  • Thead'or · Like many horses, I think she likes the Churchill clay based dirt, instead of the sand at Fairgrounds. That was a good field, and she did what she had to to win. · 1154 days ago ·
The Grade 3 Rachel Alexandra Stakes on Saturday has shaped up to be the deepest sophomore filly race of the year and a fantastically exciting prep for the May 6th Kentucky Oaks. The field of seven includes stakes winners Gran Lioness, Bouquet Booth and Inglorious. But all eyes will be fixed on Kathm...Read More

  • KyOaksRunner · I think Bouquet Booth is a good filly but definitely outclassed by the likes of Kathmanblu and perhaps Inglorious and Gran Lioness. She didn't beat much of note in the Silverbulletday Stakes and had to work pretty hard to to it. · 1157 days ago ·
  • stonecoldmiracle17 · I think kathmanblu is a really great filly but for some reason i just feel that she is just going to be right there when it counts at the end no disrespect to anyone you guys are all great with the information provided for all the horse racing nation fans out their is just part of the game thats why they let you bet on it .. good luck to all you bettors trying to beat kathmanblu. · 1156 days ago ·
Donver Stable’s Inglorious, who broke her maiden in the first start of her career in Woodbine’s $150,000 Fanfreluche Stakes last Oct. 24, kept her undefeated record intact at two-for-two by capturing Canada’s $150,000 Ontario Lassie Stakes by 5 3/4-lengths Dec. 4,   On Saturday, the Josie Carr...Read More

  • KarenYe · Ah, Ignorance is bliss with you Mr....Footlick is it? I clearly stated why [on Accident] I rated her a 1. Neither of these mares deserve a 1 for the accomplishments they've achieved, especially Zenyatta. · 1158 days ago ·
  • Footlick · KarenYe- no ignorance here. go read your post. Keep spreading negativity if it makes you feel better. Coincidence? · 1157 days ago ·

Trainer Steve Margolis was all smiles Sunday morning on the clubhouse apron as he watched workouts with wife Sue by his side – and that was easily understandable.   Two of his 3-year-old fillies, Right Time Racing’s Bouquet Booth and Gold Square’s Little Miss Holly, finished first and third re...Read More
