  • 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. · 718 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. · 717 days ago ·

  • Mary Z. · He's by Curlin's sire, Smart Strike, and has the same damsire, Deputy Minister. · 749 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · If the odds pemit I'm going to throw in a 3/6/8 tri box. UR just needs a prep and EP needs 1st or 2nd, #3 has a lot of upside 2nd off layoff and EP being the fastest horse with about the same LP. Michael Matz may just be there for a tune up for KD even though the purse is big. On a personal note sadly I didn't win the lottery, I didn't even want 1st second for a million - taxes would've been just fine. I think I need another job due to the fact every doctor I go to has at least 3 friends who want to shake my hand for a couple hundred. · 748 days ago ·
Awesome Maria, winner of five straight graded stakes, will be an odds-on favorite to make it six in a row in Saturday’s Rampart Stakes (G3) at Gulfstream Park.Read More

  • Herman'sKennel · Chad Brown is so proud of this horse, he has such an affection for her, he only wants her to be sound, God Forbid anything ever happen to her on his watch. Did it ever occur to anyone that he truly loves this horse and does not want to take even the slightest chance with her well being? She is in the very best hands and as someone who adores this horse, I thank God for Chad Brown · 752 days ago ·
  • TampaBayDowns Fan · Story like the Apple Blossom for RA and Zenyatta. Rich purse if both were to race then, but only Z showed up to take it. · 752 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · I sincerely hope that is the real reason and not an excuse to dodge Maria. · 754 days ago ·
  • roymouinn · Brown will do whats best for the horse and I am sure they will meet sometime just not at Gulfstream where Zenyatta and rachel would lose to maria · 754 days ago ·
