  • jmcleav · I have gained a new insight when I realized his 2nd dam is Bayakoa. In my mind that makes him special indeed. · 528 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · too little too late, but I have to agree on the quality of performance in the Whtiney · 528 days ago ·
Can To Honor and Serve live up to the potential and brilliance he has shown on so many occasions? If he can we will be in for one heck of a ride these next couple of months. Read More

  • DeadHeat · No denying that Mott has a ton of good horses in his stable this year. He has arguably the 3 of the top 5 older males running. · 596 days ago ·
  • CauseForConcern · Probably one fact that's most impressing, is that THAS was one of the early Derby favorites, but after the Florida Derby, Mott had to put him on the shelf. He was patient in bringing him back, and, if Mott ever believed in him, then the horse could be close to being back on course. · 596 days ago ·
Yesterday, I wrote about my pick for the Swaps Stakes, Called to Serve, who has completely turned around his career since being gelded. The major equipment change was plenty enough for me to toss his early races and only look at his last two. Unfortunately, I am not always so fast to come around and...Read More

  • notobsessed · He was very playful in the paddock before the Cornhusker, kept throwing his head around, trying to nip the guy holding his lead and trying to butt him with his hea, he really looked ready to run. I wasn't surprised when he went straight to the lead. · 659 days ago ·

  • buckpasser · Daniel how true. Long trip but it is worth it. Hansens owner helped racing out a great deal by gaining new fans by racing his horse in Iowa. · 660 days ago ·

  • Capper · Believe You Can busted me out of my pick-4, but still up for the day. Let's end with a some momentum & get #9 Stellabymoonlight home in the nightcap! · 720 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · @yukichan, last year I used to have access to a lot of free sites I used for boxing, soccer, and other sports. My PC crashed and my favorites along with it. I'll see if any of my friendshave those addresses as you need more than one most times because if you get to many using it will freeze. can't promise anything but even though I retired from poker playing I still used to like to kill time on line playing small stakes until OUR government decided we weren't mature enough to decide for orselves. Oh well gotta take what comes. · 720 days ago ·

  • cpsoren121 · I can't wait! MMM in the race named after one of my all time faves Alysheba! Will be great to see him at CD again! · 722 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · Chris, you *might* be as excited as I am about this race. And that's saying a lot. No doubt about it, though, MMM is going to have a HUGE cheering section, both at the track and in front of tvs, computers, etc. · 722 days ago ·
Mucho Macho Man seeks his fourth straight win when he takes on nine others in Friday's Grade 2 Alysheba Stakes at Churchill Downs. Read More
The switch from Gulfstream's fast surface to Churchill Downs' deeper surface did not faze Mucho Macho Man one bit. The Macho Uno colt logged his first recorded work under the Twin Spires, and Kostas Hatzikoutelis and Dream Team Racing Stable could not have been happier with how their star worked.Read More

  • Floridaf · That's exactly the point I made to one of his critics, AmbitiousD. He should prove us both right in the Alysheba. · 745 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · Yes ma'am, that is exactly right annmatt. I had the pleasure of seeing MMM in person (horse) at Gulfstream back in March, and he is definitely one huge, good-looking colt. Considering that he is young for his age group, I would love to see him race again next year if he continues to remain sound and healthy. · 745 days ago ·
