  • shores · I mean, I could see Vyjack being competitive in the Cigar Mile, but that of course is at Aqueduct so I don't know how handsomely he would pay. But I hope he does well in the summer classics because he's only ran one bad race in his life and deserves some respect. · 284 days ago ·
  • tmallios1 · shores you are absolutely correct, he did only have 1 bad race . but to be honest ,to be considered among the best he will have to beat them. i personally believe he will be more than compettitive this summer. but this is not an attempt to convince others. by the way mary. you are all so right. sentiment can only take you so far.heavy pockets are just as rewarding. · 284 days ago ·
Since closing with a furious late rush to finish fourth in a 5 ½ furlong state-bred race at Penn National in her career debut, Princess of Sylmar has come a long way, baby. From modest beginnings, can a Kentucky Oaks champion come? I have reason to believe that the answer may be yes, and at most att...Read More

  • buckpasser · Thanks Brian. I liked her but was on the fence, but put some money on her across the Board after reading yor column. For the record I liked Beholder and Close Hatches. · 350 days ago ·
The Wood Memorial was billed as the battle of “V” versus “V”, Verrazano against Vyjack, and that is exactly how it played out. Verrazano got the “V” for Victory in the battle down the stretch against Vyjack and a late-running Normandy Invasion.Read More

  • BrianZipse · Nice win for Verrazano, but there are obvious Kentucky Derby warning signs there. · 377 days ago ·
  • vodkak · That last test might prove to be a tough task for all the entrants, not just Verrazano. · 377 days ago ·
Save for a fourth-place finish in her debut in a sprint race against Pennsylvania-bred maidens last fall, King of Prussia Stable’s Princess of Sylmar has been untouchable. In four subsequent starts, all victories, the daughter of Majestic Warrior has crossed the finish line a minimum of 5 ¼ lengths ...Read More
  • Mary Z. · Princess of Sylmar--I hope she takes the Gazelle. · 378 days ago ·
  • FunnyCideAppeal · Closes Hatches Looks really good, but Princess of Sylmar has already won so many races over this track I think she should have no problem. · 378 days ago ·
The 2013 Wood Memorial sets up as a battle between Vyjack and Verrazano. That makes the race a clash of “V” versus “V” and thus it is very easy to think of the historic slogan of "V for Victory".Read More
With just two prior starts on her resume, a fast and determined Close Hatches proved she belongs among the leaders of the 3-year-old filly division Saturday, turning back a strong challenge by Princess of Sylmar to win the 118th running of the Grade 2, $250,000 Gazelle at Aqueduct Racetrack.

Making her stakes debut as the 8-5 favorite in Saturday’s Grade 2 Gazelle is Juddmonte Farms’ Close Hatches, an impressive winner of both her starts at Gulfstream Park. Trained by Hall of Famer Bill Mott, the First Defence filly was a seven-length maiden winner on January 26 and a front-running 1 ¼-...Read More
1st - Walkwithapurpose, 2nd - Close Hatches, 3rd - Princess Of Sylmar, 4th - Watrugonnadorosie.
This should be a great race and I hope Walkwithapurpose handles the track.
