What the Nation is saying about the 2013 Jim Dandy (G2)...

Palace Malice has turned the corner, and must now demonstrate that he is not only ready to assume the role of leader of this crop, but also that he is ready to handle a fine field of olders. Read More

  • Floridaf · It's easier to be cocky about a football game than it is to be cocky about a horse race. So much can go wrong (or right in the case of a longshot) that literally anything could happen. Add in a race where any number of horses could legitimately win, and yea...Anyway. Flat Out. Plain and simple. He runs this thing. · 204 days ago ·
  • tmallios1 · i guess fumbles,interceptions and dropped passes are out(LOL) GOOD LUCK. · 204 days ago ·
This year, the Gold Cup could determine a championship, complete an historic triple, determine a path to the Breeders Cup, and define a career.Read More

  • Mary Z. · I guess the lack of larger fields would be lamented. · 205 days ago ·
  • dani.pugh · He has two very good shots in a top three year old and older male. I'd take those shots too. He also has a horse that was a group one turf winner, at this distance, who can apparently run on dirt, so again, why not give him the shot? Baffert I think overenters sometimes. Entering some that don't really have a legit shot. Pletcher's three all have good reasons as to why they are in this race. · 204 days ago ·
Can a horse who floundered through each leg of the Triple Crown, possibly end the year as the Three-year-old Male Champion? In the case of Will Take Charge, the answer is yes.Read More

  • jmac500 · WTC gets no love. · 211 days ago ·
  • ruffianlover · It's not that he is not getting any love. It's just that he is throwing away his chance to win 3yo honors (well not him but his owners). I just gave him some love! haha I said he has a good chance to hit the board in the Classic ( I don't think he will win but I wouldn't be surprised if he got third). I see him doing better than Orb honestly. But I just think him not running in the JCGC gives Orb and PM a much better advantage over him should they win, place or show · 211 days ago ·

  • https://www.facebook.com/josephrgreco · Is there something fishy about the winners(Will Take Charge) huge last three jumps,and if so,do you think that the kid had a device with him.I certainly hope not!!Would be a tremendous embarrassment for Lukas and the owners.The kid would be done racing for life if he did anything illegal in that race!! · 231 days ago ·

Palace Malice did what I thought he was going to do. I didn't get a chance to gloat, along with Rafi and the others who knew Palace Malice was going to take it. My son was being Baptized as the race was going on, so I did not get to see it or watch a replay yet. What happened to Mylute?

  • travel_vic · Tracks, just about all of them, have energy profiles. Horses kicking ass at Philly fade at Belmont, horses doing well at Gulfstream oddly do well here at Woodbine because the energy pratmeters are close...The Fair Grounds continues to produce all these late running locals that FAIL miserable when shifted to an earlier track....You have to know the energy heirarchies to be prepared for the shippers · 264 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · LONG meets like Philly, Mountaineer, Woodbine and the like (Tampa) help since there is no great influx of horses from differing veneus to deal with that often. · 264 days ago ·
If his Belmont Stakes win was indeed, “the mother of all great moments,” then today’s Jim Dandy was a love child for the attractive son of champion, Curlin, and his happy connections. Read More
In this second part of our interview, Todd Pletcher talks about his past success, his early Saratoga stakes runners and all the people it takes to help a stable win. This interview was conducted just before the start Saratoga's 150th season.Read More

  • goblin · rafi, I loved Hansen the colt; we had more than one conversation about it. I said above that Dr. Hansen did ridiculous things; I made a distinction. (?) I'm now going back to Monmouth for a while. · 265 days ago ·
  • rafirox · Haha, sorry, Goblin. · 265 days ago ·
Palace Malice was out to prove his Belmont was no fluke. He did that and more when winning the Jim Dandy.Read More

  • Floridaf · Great article from a true Palace Malice believer! As goblin stated, Stopshoppingdebbie is also helping PM make a good case for Curlin. · 266 days ago ·
  • SharonDavis · I picked him out early. Loved his sire & just really believed in this guy. Also those who said Curlin was mediocre, he's got a classic winner in his 1st year How could they have given up on him that early. · 266 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · odds at post will tell the tale of who to support, but based upon Morning Line they stack up thus: 8 Mylute A- 2 Code West B+ 5 Palace Malice F 4 Moreno A+ 1 Bashaar . The letter after the ranking is the suggested value of the wager on them IF they stayed at morning line levels and they were no scratches so this is maleable to the current odds right up until post time. · 266 days ago ·
  • rafirox · Surprised not many chose the Malice. @Jay, you lived to eat those words! Way to go with Will Take Charge. I didn't think he'd do so well. Good call, Jay. · 266 days ago ·

  • yukichan · The Diana and Del Mar R4 saved me today. Will be looking at the odds in the San Diego--think there is money to be made there too. · 266 days ago ·
  • tmallios1 · yuch at your rate, iam all ears my friend.you are on fire. kick ass and enjoy it.strike while the iron is hot.to bad the San Diego field is so small.i doubt there is value.but hell,who am i to judge.you nailed it in a 5 horse field in the dianna.again nice job. · 266 days ago ·
So I had the opportunity to go home at very short notice,and I jumped at the opportunity ... however that means that I now am stuck without access to a tv I can watch the races toay and tomorrow on. Is there a website that broadcasts them?

  • kay.robinett · NBC sports has a website where you can watch their sports coverage on line. When our local NBc affiliate chose to show some horrid Valentine's Day (!!!) puppet show instead of the first part of the Belmont coverage I was able to watch online on the NBC sports website for free. · 266 days ago ·
  • goblin · Ha, ha, kay! I remember that dreadful occurrence--I felt your pain! · 266 days ago ·
Call me crazy, but I think the big long shot, Perfect Title has a real shot in today's Jim Dandy.
I think Mylute pulls off the win today. Everyone is getting hypnotized by these other horses who just aren't in the same class as PM and Mylute.
Code West tracks Moreno, pounces and holds off Palace Malice for the win.
Win Palace Malice Place Mylute Show Code West 4th Perfect Title
After being torn between 4 horses, I'm putting the scrappy Code West on top with Mylute a close 2nd.
Palace Malice.. Will Take Charge..Mylute
