impressive win back! love this colt.
Yeah, have to wonder the same thing as everyone else here. Where is Seabiscuit? War Admiral is 21, Seabiscuit should be at least in the top 25.
I'm brattily going w/speed--they're all speed? Rocket Time. The shipper has been too disappointing, but GL to him of course.
Richies Sweetheart wins the Honor The Hero in gate to wire fashion.
Former jockey Joseph O'Brien, who recently retired from riding due to difficulty controlling his weight, revealed to the Racing Post web-site today that he expects to receive to his training licence this week and expects to have his first runners in his own name by next Monday.
I have so much riding on this horse right now. I bred my Malibu Moon mare to Big Brown and she is due February. I also picked up an Elusive Quality mare and bred her to Brown as well. She is due in March. I'm thrilled to see Dortmund back but where is Coach Inge?
NOT enough seasoning. Happened to Tapit, Curlin and many others that first Saturday in May
Stradivari is the perfect example of a horse that can run fast against allowance company but when moved up in class can't replicate that same performance. So many horses follow this pattern.

  • cugel the clever · Give the horse a break. It was only the 4th start of his career and his first stakes race, and he ran very well finishing 4th to the two best 3yo who have far more experience and maturity. This horse is a real player in the Belmont, especially with the lack of early speed in the race. I can see him setting soft to moderate fractions on the lead and wiring the field. · 7 hours ago
No winner of the Belmont of the last 30 years lost contact with the main pack of horses like Lani did in the Derby and the Preakness , the big closers like Birdstone was in the back of the main pack but did not lose contact with them , he will again make a nice run at the end , might get second .
My pick is still Exaggerator, but I think it's going to be very close. Brody's Cause, Creator and Lani (if he wants to run) seem to be his major opponents.
Something seems fishy. First they said she would only be out for a very short while as behavior wise she wasn't Acting completely normal. Then they said they will most likely point her to a certain race. Now they're saying oh we never said we were pointing to this race and we have no idea when she will be back? I understand the horse will tell them when she's ready but something is up here. Why can't they just be honest and say we don't think she's ready yet for said race. It shouldn't take this long for her to come back, I wonder if there is something else going on with her they aren't saying. Hope she is just fine and gets back soon
Firing Line worked today: 4 furlongs in 48:40, handily.
travel_vic................ to which software are you referring?
Man that was a terribly disappointing Derby for Creator. Can anyone find a reason for his poor performance that make someone believe he will be a bounce back in the Belmont??
QUOTE: "Stradivari is the perfect example of a horse that can run fast against allowance company but when moved up in class can't replicate that same performance." AFTER the fact rubbish, based upon gross sample error. If this animal did it THREE times or more against a significant faster pace of race, THEN this statement MIGHT have some merit, otherwise it is fiction. Horses have NO IDEA the man made class they run against: they simply run versus the PACE which is CLASSLESS.
No question about this... without any horses like Gun Runner , Nyquist , or Laoban, I'm sure Destin is going to be enjoying 49 flat and 1 13 and 3 for the dreadful pace in this Belmont. I think Destin will act as the Commissioner , being ran down by a long shot out of Tapit- CREATOR!!! Exaggerator is the Orb or Dullahan of this race.
I think, Lani should be on everyone's ticket. The muddy Preakness did not effect him! Very few horses can go 22 lengths and last place, out of the Gate, TO RUN Down A field Of horses On A Sloppy track and get cut off trying to go down an opening between tiring Nyquist and Stradavari,( I think it was) Then Pull Up Out Of The Cutoff Position Towards THE Out Side and make it to position where he could get by, the line of three horses, in front of him and blocking him, to almost pass them at the finish line... which he did just a few yards afterwards. All of them, he would of been a hands down second by lengths if he could have made it through that opening a few furlongs before the race...for that effort and all of his runs in Japan. ..Lani will be my favorite because I'm not sure any other horses can do that
The Desormeaux Brothers. Great article by Marty Mc Gee. 04/18/2013 http://www.drf.com/news/desormeaux-conflicting-views-his-struggles As PAUL HARVEY would say “Now you know the rest of the story”.
Can't wait for her back. I hope she will be ok from now ;)
