What the Nation is saying about the 2012 Gulfstream Park Hcp (G2)...

With Kentucky Derby fever in full flight, fans are clamoring for Union Rags – Hansen II. I’m all for that; a real honest to goodness rivalry through the Triple Crown would be great for our sport, but a couple of performances this past week have me very excited for the potential of another match-up. ...Read More

  • RichardBlakley · Going to be the race of the Memorial Day weekend for me, looking at a super edition of one of my favorites...like Caleb, but at least 4 or 5 of the listed probables would be no surprise--great betting race! · 696 days ago ·

  • AndyScoggin · It was quite a meeting at Gulfstream. Seven likely Derby starters ran well at Gulfstream: Hansen, Union Rags, Dullahan, Gemologist, Take Charge Indy, Trinniberg, and Went the Day Well. · 719 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · Horse of the Meet is now officially included! Matt, it was a great meet, and I was fortunate enough to see both the Swale and the Gulfstream Park Handicap. Later this week I will likely have a piece up on the Derby chances of the seven colts you named. · 718 days ago ·
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. · 740 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. · 740 days ago ·
Mucho Macho Man makes winning look good, easily dispatching of Tackleberry and Jackson Bend in the Gulfstream Park Handicap.Read More

  • KyOaksRunner · Same here Ashley, he's really come into his own! Turned into a fantastic older horse. · 766 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · He sure has Brian A! I'll be rooting for him all season. So far, he seems to be quite sound, too (knock on wood). · 764 days ago ·

  • AnnaK · Now off to Fairgrounds and the Louisuana Derby!! Hope it's closer, and understand there's a few of us living vicariously through you · 765 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · AnnaK, I don't think the Fairgrounds are any closer than Gulfstream, but the idea has merit. That very well may just have to be the next stop for me. · 765 days ago ·

  • daniclint · Golden Ticket beats Prospective if he hadn't dropped to the rail. The middle of the track was live at Tampa yesterday the rail was dead. · 769 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · A better explanation since Prospective was on the rail for the first half of the race is the better horses were running in the middle of the track where 89% of winners everywhere run on dry fast tracks. · 769 days ago ·

Trainer Kathy Ritvo set the $300,000 Gulfstream Park Handicap (G2) on March 10 as the next start for multiple-stakes winner Mucho Macho Man. Ritvo gave the green light to the one-turn mile handicap after watching the 4-year-old son of Macho Uno breeze four furlongs Friday morning in :48.25 seconds a...Read More
While Rick Dutrow continues to take Boys At Tosconova’s comeback one small step at the time, William Bradley decided to take a bolder approach to Groupie Doll’s 2012 debut. Rather than keeping the filly in her own division, Bradley entered his charge in an allowance optional claiming race in which s...Read More
  • zatt · This is actually quite a match-up ... I think both Doll and Boys will win graded stakes in 2012. · 815 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · Our Dark Knight needs a break-out race. He is on the verge of big things, I think, but he keeps coming up short. The Harlan's Holiday was easily his best race in a while. · 814 days ago ·
