The Grade 1 Alabama is expected to give clarity to the 3-YO Filly division, but what about the West Coast based Eden's Moon who is entered in the G1 Del Mar Oaks?Read More

  • Floridaf · As far as turf races go, Lady of Shamrock does have the advantage. She has a G3 win, a G2 place, and a G1 win all on turf; compare that to Eden's Moon's G2 turf win. As for the entire 3-YO filly division, Eden's Moon has the slight advantage, IMO. Of course, none of these fillies have multiple G1 wins, so if a G1 winner takes home one or both of the weekend's races, then she (or they) will automatically rocket to the top of the division. · 609 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · Royal Delta has had a light campaign this year. She was fantastic in the Fleur de Lis, but Mott needs to pick it up if he has any hopes of his filly earning another championship. · 647 days ago ·

  • RichardBlakley · Been cashing tickets on Rosie since early days in Maryland, through Louisiana and New York--great to see her get the Oaks, even better that she is fully recovered from injuries with a long and brilliant career ahead of her, and getting recognized where it really counts--getting top rides from top outfits. All due respect to M. Gutierrez, J. Talamo, J. Leparoux--Rosie is as good a rider as any of them, and look for her to continue to prove it @ Belmont and Saratoga. · 711 days ago ·

  • bigdawginva · "What do Broadway’s Alibi, Believe You Can, Amie’s Dini, Hansen, Bodemeister, and Trinniberg all have in common? You guessed it … you will not find any of them on my tickets this weekend." LOL....good call...obviously no Oaks/Derby double cashed tickets for you. This is a perfect example why I love reading articles and comments on these horse racing sites. People, whether experts or novices, have absolutely no clue who will win. They're guessing just like the other 50 million of us. · 714 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. · 715 days ago ·
