What the Nation is saying about the 2013 Pacific Classic (G1)...

It is easy to believe that Game On Dude is getting better with age. He has not lost a race as a six-year-old, capturing each of his five starts in 2013 by a combined 24 ¼ lengths. Is this finally the year the veteran will take home an Eclipse Award? Read More

  • likin sparks · One thing to be said is I'm still impressed on how GOD won at Charles Town, many didn't know the day before the race the track was pelted with heavy rains and though listed as fast it was far from that. I had spoke with Mike Smith after the race and he told me GOD had a horrible time on turns and was loosing footing yet had enough motor to win, IMO that was his best race of the year mainly being far away from his elements. · 226 days ago ·

Handicap star Game On Dude towroped his field in the 23rd edition of the $1-million TVG Pacific Classic Sunday, helping to put the cherry on the sundae that was Week Six of racing at Del Mar this summer.Read More
We read through the press kit for today’s 23rd running of the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic (to save you the time and bother, no thanks necessary) and came up with the following. In post position order:Read More
Saturday’s Del Mar Recap – August 24 (Day 29) Polytrack seemed to play fair and yielded one wire job route at 8.5f. Patient types captured both turf routes carded (8f, 11f). No riding or training doubles on Saturday. Using DRF’s Ticketmaker strategy on Saturday, I tabbed two “A” winners (Brown Boss,...Read More

  • EP Taylor · His last work was a blow out. Looks like he was training very well. Don't know for certain, but looks like Mr.Casse has him cranked up. · 238 days ago ·

When Endorsement drew the least-favored No. 1 post for Sunday’s $1 million TVG Pacific Classic, some longtime racing followers immediately prophesized that it would mean the 6-year-old son of Distorted Humor would have to be sent for the lead from the start.Read More
Well betting on this race would be crazy but I'll go with Kettle Corn and Dullahan.
Why would trainer Mike Pender send his million-dollar-plus earner Jeranimo, who has produced numerous feats of turf magic over the past three years, back to Polytrack for Sunday’s 23rd running of the Grade 1 $1-million TVG Pacific Classic at Del Mar? Because the trainer thinks a second shot at the P...Read More

  • buds · Like I said he often loses when the big boys come to town. or as TV would say the energy distribution among elite competitors is notoptimal for his fractional splits leading to key pace issues that would hamper, if not negate his statistical chance of winning at this venue · 243 days ago ·
  • ariana.kornaus · Game On Dude will lose. Kettle Corn almost beat him in his last race. This is his race to lose just like the breeders' cup classic · 243 days ago ·
My first impulse is too pound g.o.d try to get back money I lost during summer
