  • seattleslewgal345 · Floridaf, I too think he is that good. To me, he comes off as one of those who will improve and get better. Forget about Know more's connections, and just focus on the colt and what he has shown us so far. And no, I am not going to jump on the Shanghai Bobby bandwagon. Forget about that, it's not happening. he may be undefeated, but give him factors. Give him problems. Make him go the distance, and make him run into troubles, and then lets see how he comes out of it. · 575 days ago ·

If all twelve horses entered on Saturday start, Wednesday’s 65th running of the $300,000 Grade I Del Mar Futurity will be the second-largest field for the event in the past 22 years. Thirteen went postward with Georgie Boy winning in 2007 and there were 11-horse fields in 2010, 2008 and 2005. Before...Read More

Know more will win tommorrow. Another big win for Doug.
Most of the maidens in the Futurity have only gone 5 1/2 furlongs. 7 furlongs might be a bit of a jump for some of them, and yet easier for horses like Know More, Scherer Magic, and switch to the lead.
Del Mar climaxes another highly-successful Thoroughbred racing season Wednesday with a ten-race program featuring the traditional closing-day headliner, the 65th running of the Grade I $300,000 Del Mar Futurity at seven furlongs for the most talented two-year-olds in the West.

I wonder who Gomez is going to ride for this race...
My favorite race so far of the 2012 racing season for several reasons is the Preakness. One of the biggest explanations for my love of this year’s middle jewel is the admiration I felt for I’ll Have Another that day as he dug deep down for every ounce of courage he could muster to catch Bodemeister....Read More

Know More came out of his debut-race victory in the Grade II $150,000 Best Pal Stakes on Sunday “fantastic,” trainer Doug O’Neill reported Wednesday morning. The plan is to train the 2-year-old son of Lion Heart up to the $300,000 Grade I Del Mar Futurity on the closing day of the meeting, Wednesday...Read More

  • Dressage3295 · I'm certainly not one to get excited about 2 year old racing, but this horse is the definition of promising. His maiden debut was a G2 race that he won (how many horses of today can claim that?), his times were good, he won with ease, and his pedigree screams stamina. This is one to keep an eye on. · 614 days ago ·
  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · Im a big fan of O'Neills horses, so I am excited. Obviously he's not the best horse ever yet. I can't wait to follow him on the road to the Kentucky Derby. · 613 days ago ·
This could pan out to be a very interesting race...
