  • KyOaksRunner · She's had an incredible year. I hope they decide to run her again, I'd love to see her conquer at the Breeders' Cup and face Royal Delta. · 245 days ago ·

  • AndyScoggin · Wise Dan and Princess seem like locks with Palace Malice one Travers away to become a lock. · 252 days ago ·
  • rafirox · Matt Shifman, thanks for writing this. I think you got 3 out of the 5 correct. Princess of Sylmar and Wise Dan are practically locks, and Palace Malice is my pick for the 3yo champ. · 252 days ago ·
HRN spent the day with Princess of Sylmar and her human connections during CCA Oaks day, including a barn visit, a paddock trip, owner's box and winner's circle video and the post race party.Read More

Unlimied Budget in my opinion will be the best filly from this crop, so I'll go with her.

  • travel_vic · Wallace WAS a good caller for a very long time, did much good work in his community and for the racing game, BUT it was time for him to call it quits SEVERAL years ago when he blew call after call. Stayed a tad too long. · 279 days ago ·
As usual, Saratoga is all set to begin with a bang.Read More

  • BrianZipse · Suddenly feeling a little queasy, a little feverish... don't think I can make it to work. In an unrelated note... I need a ride to Saratoga. · 279 days ago ·
Princess of Sylmar will make her first start since winning the Kentucky Oaks when she competes in the Grade 1, $300,000 TVG Coaching Club American Oaks on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course.Read More
  • cedar · I think the Princess is ready to join Beholder and Emollient as a dual 3yo grade 1 winner · 280 days ago ·
No Beholder? I am a bit suprised by that.

  • ekindy · West Coast fillies are at a big disadvantage in that Del Mar doesn't have any graded stakes races for three year old fillies on the dirt. If PoS pulls off a sweep of the CCAO, Alabama and Cotillion (and I know that's hardly a given), the three year old filly championship will be decided even before Beholder gets to show her stuff at the Breeders Cup. · 282 days ago ·
  • ekindy · *Oops, I mean synthetic track, not dirt. I keep forgetting that. Maybe that would have kept Beholder away anyway, but my basic point still stands. · 282 days ago ·
Close Hatches (temperature) and Dreaming of Julia (time frame) will both miss the CCA Oaks. Pletcher sends out Princess of Sylmar and Unlimited Budget to represent the "Todd Squad."
