  • AmbitiousD · Congrats to this brilliant horse. He is a joy to watch any time he takes the track · 689 days ago ·
Awesome Maria and It’s Tricky will put their undefeated 2012 records on the line Monday when they meet for the first time in the Grade 1, $400,000 Ogden Phipps Handicap, one of four graded stakes on an action-packed Memorial Day card at Belmont Park.Read More

  • RichardBlakley · Oops, previous an old comment that somehow got on this thread...LOOK OUT, Awesome Maria, the thing about winning the Phipps tomorrow is It's Tricky, lol! · 691 days ago ·
It's Tricky, I love you♥
I’m just disappointed that the most horses we can hope to see in the three big grade 1 races at Belmont on Monday add up to a grand total of 17. I pray there are no scratches.Read More

  • annmatt · Sorry you are having a bad day, Brian! You should be pleased your Mr. Commons has a nice field of 11 in the American coming up tomorrow. One of my favorite new horses is a filly by the name of Aqsaam, and she's running in the Sheepshead Bay S at Belmont tomorrow in a FIELD OF FOURTEEN!! · 692 days ago ·
