  • footlick · Mary Z.- obviously Summer Guest could. And in the Jockey Gold Cup, Shuvee could. And a little later, obviously, Lady's Secret. All ran against stronger males. You can put her in whatever historical perspective you want. The topic is closed for me. No more comments other than Euros from now on. And painting is not weary-making. It is actually energizing. But commissions need to get done on time. Take care. · 818 days ago ·
  • Mary Z. · lol footy. I thought you meant painting your guest room or something. I didn't know you're an artist. Yes, you will be commenting on other than Euros. Come on. :) · 818 days ago ·

Plum Pretty wil win decisively.
In this case, two wrongs result in only one thing ... nothing but disappointment for the racing fans at Oaklawn Park. Read More

  • footlick · bellesforever1- the racing secretary is supposed to weigh the horses to finish together. I think he gave them the correct weight spread. If they want to complain that they should have been weighted so they would win, then that is different. But the racing secretary did his job. He is not the one who did not do his job. They were mad that she didn't win. Period. That is why I don;t like their constant whining about it. . · 821 days ago ·

Trainer Bob Baffert, who has already won three stakes races this meet, is going to attempt to win three more by taking two shots at Wednesday’s Fantasy Stakes with Jemima’s Pearl and Mamma Kimbo, one shot at Friday’s Apple Blossom Handicap (G1) with Plum Pretty and two shots in Saturday’s Arkansas D...Read More
Havre de Grace closed out her New Orleans winter vacation with a five furlong workout Sunday morning and will now ship to Oaklawn Monday with trainer Larry Jones expecting her to defend her title in the Grade 1 Apple Blossom on Friday, April 13.Read More
As compelling, or not, you found her seasonal debut, I believe the more interesting thing is all the talk surrounding where her connections chose to make her first start of the year.Read More

On paper, yesterday’s $100,000 Bayakoa Stakes at Oaklawn Park looked like a two-horse race. Absinthe Minded and Tiz Miz Sue who had run one-two in the recent Pippin Stakes, were sent off as the 3-2, and 7-5 clear choices in the five-horse field. Looking at the past performances of the two it was cle...Read More
