  • airedale2008 · There's nothing better than watching older horses perform so spectacularly as Calidoscopio did in the Brooklyn. From being completely out of the competition, to winning with style. As the announcer said, Calidoscopio is only the second 10 year old to ever win a graded stakes race. Calidoscopio is Argentinian bred. The other 10 year old is the German bred Musketier. It would be nice to see some American bred horses winning at this age. Aaron Gryder ran a brilliant race under instructions from trainer Mike Puype to run late most of the way. For those who believe that jockeys are only passengers and horses run races all by themselves, watch this one again. · 110 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · I would like a series of races like the old Championship Racing Series for older horses, actually in every division of racing. It would be better in my opinion to have the races all around the country not just in New York. Anyway the idea of a handicap triple crown would not work today since no trainer wants to run with added weight, most of the handicaps today are run with the high weight actually carrying less weight than in weight for age races. Handicaps, with real weights, are a thing of the past. · 157 days ago ·

  • EP Taylor · take a page out of the Qipco Champions Series, The Global Sprint Challenge etc etc. A Series of races for each division. Then load up the purses and Market the heck out of it. · 157 days ago ·

Hoping for Ruler on Ice--one of my favorites--but Calidoscopio was absolutely AMAZING. Congrats, old man!

1 - Flashy Sunrise, 2 - Percuussion, 3 - Fast Falcon, 4 - Ruler On Ice. I'm going with a horse that deserves a huge win and I think he'll get the job done.
