  • travel_vic · all races on dirt decelerate. The rate at which they do that has much to do with how far the winner is out front. If the win is easy, why ask the horse to continue? · 462 days ago ·

With a name like Goldencents, you might expect the protagonist in this story to be surrounded by Bentleys, martinis shaken not stirred, supervillains, and Bond girls, but not so. This hero makes 007 look as slow as a senior citizen trying to use an iPad for the first time. Generally speaking, a 5 ½ ...Read More

  • icyhotboo · zatt, on that particular track the #9 post, with his early speed gave him a big advantage. I used to go to a harness track with that configeration, Vernon Downs. Horses with early speed usually got the position they wanted. I didn't expect BI to be sitting behind a wall of horses either though. I didn't think he'd get there on that track. Nice runs by both. · 514 days ago ·

Goldencents went wire-to-wire in the $1 million Delta Jackpot (gr. III) at Delta Downs Nov. 17, setting quick early fractions and responding with something more to hold off a late run from 9-5 favorite Bern Identity. Read More
This Delta Downs Jackpot does not have the Kentucky Derby entry impact that it has had in the pastRead More
  • BrianZipse · It's funny now that the Jackpot is not as important to qualifying for the Kentucky Derby that it has attracted one of its strongest overall fields. · 515 days ago ·

  • theprodigy34 · Again, I really don't get why you keep saying "he has not done well on any surface" when he is only a two year old, and he has won a graded stake on poly, but placed well on dirt. Whatever. · 525 days ago ·

This should be a very interesting race. I have to say GC is my favorite here. With out Bobby, he should be able to take the lead and keep it. I have to admit that the BC made me a fan of hightail as well .. (a bit suprised he is considering enting him again so soon -but this is a Lukas horse ..- ) I will wait to see how Hightail performs in his next race before I really decide if I like him a lot or not. I think Luck had a lot to do with his win in the BC.
Bern has a great chance of winning. I cannot wait for him to run again!
