  • jmac500 · I think Liaison and Yomybato will make Game on Dude work and Oilisblackgoold will pick up the peices. · 292 days ago ·
  • jasen.mangrum · He was getting to him pretty good in the short stretch at CT. A little more distance & longer stretch...I really think he has a legitimate shot to turn the tables. · 291 days ago ·
It looked like the big favorite was in danger, but Game On Dude dug in gamely to hold off his challengers by one-half length at the wire of the $1.5 million Charles Town Classic.Read More

  • likin sparks · OTG, I like Ghost Zapper as much as the next guy but if he was subjected to the frequency of GOD's races I think his outcome would have been much different. Anyways GOD has surpassed GZ's winnings by over a million dollars maybe to you that's pocket change but to me it's sheet load more and something tells me he's not finished yet. It all depends on how you look at it... · 362 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · on a bull ring, the straightaways (check out Fairplex for example) are so short, even the presser types have a very hard time catching the controlling speed. At Hastings wire to wire horse win in the Summer with such repetitiveness it is crazy, just for that reason. · 362 days ago ·
anyone know where I can watch the race live on tv or the internet?

  • rafirox · I reviewd the race after insight from others... If you read my post before they loaded "Game On Dude, Caixa, Ron the Greek, Clubhouse Ride." Still pretty off. · 365 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · running style alone gave it to the favorite · 364 days ago ·
Tonight at Charles Town Races, Caixa Eletronica will be in search of the biggest payday in his long career in the $1.5 million Charles Town Classic.Read More

  • likin sparks · Pletcher's mistake was scratching the 1, the 2 couldn't get the distance and the 6 bounced or showed signs of age. · 364 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · looked goo but simply the wrong style for a bull ring · 364 days ago ·
I think Game On Dude will do it but Clubhourse ride might turn the tables on him.
Hey y'all. So I'd like to share my thoughts on this race: 1st- Caixa Electronica 2nd- Game on Dude 3rd- Clubhouse Ride 4th- Ron the Greek. THIS ORDER IS INVALID IF THE TRACK IS SLOPPY... With that said.... Caixa Electronica sticks out to me for a variety of reasons. First of all, his energy distribution going 9 furlongs, at this track, is a thing of beauty. I've been following Charles Town for years, it is one of my best tracks. Caixa Electronica, as noted, fits the energy profile perfectly. He has the significant early pressing speed (look at internal fractions going 7)... Of course, going nine, he flourishes a :48 pace on this profile. He may eserve energy and fly on the stretch... He's got the class tied up. Second is Game on Dude. I LOVE this gelding, but this is a three turn race, on a weird track, and it's tight.... He faces legit east coast horses (I'm not with that biased, but factually it has trouble).... I think he'll get tthe pace he wants and just get beat by a better late pace... Clubhouse Ride is a classy horse that never gives up, and runs his heart out. He's been improving and I expect him to hit the super... Ron the Greek is a great horse, but he doesn't stick out to me. Mordi's Miracle (right name?) is also a contender for exotics... Good luck to all. Have a good one.
Will versatility prevail in this year's Charles Town Classic, or will Ron the Greek and Game on Dude assert their superiority?Read More
  • Capper · Game on Dude looks too strong. It seems like he's getting better with age. · 366 days ago ·
  • likin sparks · Since the 2009 CT Classic inception horses coming in first or second have returned the following year to win or place except for one 8 yr old Awesome Gem who ended up 6th, just some trivial info. · 366 days ago ·
Only 7 horses are entered in a 1.5 Million dollar race, anyone else find that sad?

  • travel_vic · flat out has enough troulbe closing on big 9 and 12 furlong tracks...WOuld be a waste for him to try and negotiate those turns. · 366 days ago ·
ron the greek, game on dude and club house ride. the switch to charles town may give greek a stronger chance to bounce back.
the perfect distance for the "DUDE"
Two-time Santa Anita Handicap winner Game On Dude, prepping for a likely run in the $1.5 million Charles Town Classic on April 20, worked four furlongs on Santa Anita’s fast main track on a picture-perfect Saturday morning in 48.40, breezing, under jockey Martin Garcia. Read More
