  • SandySwenson · Good race. However, his stablemate, Believe You Can, a 3-yr-old filly who won the Silver Bullet Day Stakes earlier in the day, ran faster for the identical distance and won by 2 lengths. She also lead all the way, running the first quarter in 23 and change. · 816 days ago ·

I would like to see most of these horse back for the next leg of the series,so that for us the bettors or handicappers the comparisons become more logical and it will be more of a series.The Risen Star is next isnt it.Everyone thinks racing needs stars I cant argue with that but as bettors WE NEED MORE SERIES with full fields in each leg,the triple crown is not enough
  • icyhotboo · It's not just horse racing, there is more demand for the gambling dollar, casinos, lotteries, and it takes no effort at all to press a button on a slot or pick a lottery number. Things aren't going to get better in racing especially now that the US attorney general has opend the way for regulated state internet poker with millions in prize money.

Hey everyone just a fact to ponder Ist 2nd and third place finishers this year 2012 trainers Jones,Assmussen,and Amoss have all previously won the race twice,now Jones takes the lead with 3 after Mr.Bowling grinded out the win.
As one of the finest trainers going, Larry Jones knows good horseflesh when he sees it, so when he says he’s very happy with a young horse this time of year, it makes sense to listen. Clearly Havre de Grace, likely to be rewarded with the Horse of the Year in a matter of days, is the stable star, bu...Read More

  • waya · I think you are right about Jones. He has already done it with the fillies, maybe Mr. Bowling will be his first real Derby, Preakness, and Belmont threat. · 827 days ago ·

Has the race gone off yet? Who won?
I think Exfactor will win this one.

  • mdracing69 · Baffert on Liaison and Secret Circle: “I got him going seven-eighths in 1:23 3/5,” said trainer Bob Baffert, who has the Grade II Robert Lewis penciled in for the son of Indian Charlie owned by Arnold Zetcher, who was on hand for the drill. “He relaxed really well,” Baffert said of Secret Circle, who suffered his first loss in the one-mile Sham Stakes on Jan. 7. “I worked him in company to try and get him to settle down during a race. I have no plans for him right now, but the San Vicente is an option.” · 821 days ago ·

  • 12thCrown · I think FG spacing the race as is hurts their chances for top contenders. Very few will wheel back for another race like Nehro did last year. But it's shocking they don't draw better candidates with the $1 million purse! I love visiting that track... can't believe Asmussen is heading west this winter. · 843 days ago ·
