Many people, including myself are high on Cassatt in this Saturday's Cotillion and if you like her in that race you should take a look at Saintly Joan in the Charles Town Oaks. She is 10-1 on the morning line and is coming out as the Monmouth Oaks which she finished 3rd behind Cassatt and placed 2nd after being interfered with entering the far turn. I will note she may have run into trouble because she didn't quicken as fast as the pack she was with towards the front end but after being cutoff she checked and lost several lengths and still put in a nice rally down the stretch while some other horses under the same circumstances may have mailed it in and finished close to last, she re-rallied with a strong drive holding off another horse to finish 3rd. If she is anywhere near her morning line odds she is worth a look especially if you like Cassatt in the Cotillion.
This is heartbreaking news and the tears are rolling down as I wrote this. This horse was one of my favorites and for good reason- he was all heart and when he was on- it was game on dude! No one was beating him. This horse has done so much for the sport and I will surely miss watching him run. Like the great seabiscuit he wasn't always a winner, but he danced every dance and tried his best even if things didn't go his way. Like Sullivan I thought he had the 2011 bcc but my favorite memory will always be his third cap when he shut up all the haters and dusted WTC and MMM in a smoking hot time. So long and farewell Dude, I wish you the best and I hope you are well taken care of because it is well deserved! :*(

  • tmallios via Disqus · Vic i do not know what it is,but i agree with you one more time. No need for tears or sad Goodbyes. He is leaving the game in 1 piece and a healthy race horse. Leaving it with his head held high. Does not get better than that for a Racehorse. Believe me folks,The Dude will be well cared for in his future days. Do not for 1 second ever think that he will be neglected. · 7 hours ago
Am I the only one that sees her as a cinch in this race?
will make his next start in the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic at BEL. Confirmed by HRTV
im going with tapiture,and untapable in the cotillion...
  • rbrown1 via Disqus · i agree with tapiture and untapable. im going big on a daily double with those two. I think Protonico will be a smaller save ticket but I think Tapiture has had some rough trips and if he finally gets a good trip he should win easy...I like the timing of this race for him and he reminds me of the way Tonalist was entering Belmont. · 8 hours ago
HRTV just announced that Moonshine Mullin will not run for the rest of the year and will not be seen until Oaklawn next year
14 graded stakes wins and 8 of them grade 1's for over $6 million in earnings. Dude you are my vote for the VP award
Awesome Again to draw Game On Dude...again.

  • hannahWTC · He may not catch Dude at 1 1/8. If Dude stayed around for a close 4th at 1 1/4 after blazing early fractions. If Dude runs as well as in the Pacific Classic and the pace is more sensible, SB better pray for some help. · 13 hours ago

The all-turf Monmouth-at-Meadowlands Thoroughbred meet kicked off Thursday night with RJG Racing Management LLC’s Saintly Feelings going gate-to-wire to win the season opener by a length and a quarter. With Jordano Tunon in the irons, Saintly Feelings broke on top and never looked back, stepping the five furlongs over firm turf in :57 3/5 and returning $5.80, $3 and $2.60 as the second choice in the field of six geldings. It’s Time to Laugh, the post-time favorite, completed the $15 exacta and paid $2.60 and $2.40. It was another neck back to Two More Jacs, who paid $2.20 to show. Thursday’s opener marked the first Thoroughbred race ever run at the new Meadowlands, which opened to great fanfare last fall.The 2014 Monmouth-at-Meadowlands meet will see 14 live cards, with racing on Thursdays and Fridays in September.October racing will be conducted on Fridays and Saturdays.First post nightly will be 7:00 p.m., with the exception of Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, when post time will be 1 p.m. and noon, respectively.
Goodbye Game on Dude. You were an amazing race horse and on your best day you were one tough son of a gun to beat. Of course my favorite moment of you on the track was your 3rd Santa Anita Handicap in Stakes record time 1:58.17! Enjoy your retirement. You gave us 4 years of wonderful races and ran your heart out. A true champion. You'll forever be remembered. HAPPY RETIREMENT
Favorite memory: his 3rd SA Handicap, beating Will Take Charge and Mucho Macho Man, in 1:58.17, a new stakes record and a few ticks off the world record, hard to believe that a 7 year old gelding could accomplish that, happy retirement Game On Dude, thank you for the memories and for giving your all every time you ran, we are gonna miss you
  • Sullivan · It's been a while since Game on Dude came barreling down the lane in the '11 BCC, but I thought he had that one for sure. · 9 hours ago

California Chrome is scheduled to go to the track Friday, September 19, at 8:30 am, ET, a time slot reserved exclusively for starters in the Pennsylvania Derby and the Cotillion Stakes. California Chrome will first walk over to the gate for schooling and then gallop once around the track. Trainer Art Sherman, will brief the media at 10:00am, ET, Friday in the paddock area.
Michael Wrona, the talented track announcer at Golden Gate Fields, will take over for Frank Mirahmadi the final three days of the Fall meet at Los Alamitos. A native of Australia, Wrona, who has also called races at Hollywood Park, Lone Star Park, Arlington Park, and Churchill Downs, among others, will begin his duties Friday and continue through Sunday, closing day of the inaugural Fall season.Mirahmadi, who will be back to call the Winter meet that begins Thursday, Dec. 4 at Los Alamitos, is the regular track announcer at the San Joaquin Fair, which begins its six-day meet Friday in Stockton.
Would be great to see lead the post parade in the Awesome Again, give one final salute to the fans, and see the horse who sire is named for the stakes take one final lap around his playground at SA
Her full yearling brother sold for 850k to John Ferguson...I got a feeling she might pull an upset in the Cotillion...
  • Anne Shaw · Sincerely hoping your feeling is correct. On paper it doesn't seem possible but I have seen several that think the same way. GL · 10 hours ago
this evening is bittersweet as the retirement of my favorite racehorse has finally came. he has had a ton of ups & downs in his career & most of his wins game in dog fights. hes earned almost six million dollars & is one of the prime reasons i am in this business. i love you so much Game On Dude. thank you for all the memories big guy.

  • Goblin · kait, He'll be missed on the track and in Baffert's barn greatly. Did you notice that Steve Haskin himself wrote the BH retirement article? If he were my horse, I would consider that an honor. :) · 10 hours ago
  • jmac500 · I was waiting for them to retire but he is such a good horse! · 10 hours ago
Tiz Wonderful has been sold and will be exported to Korea
Game on Dude has been retired, as per Bloodhorse
  • Goblin · BH article is fairly lengthy and detailed. I agree with Baffert's statements about the reasons, especially that other speed horses are being sacrificed in an attempt to set him up to be beaten. He has been thrilling to watch and will be missed in that barn for sure. Brian Zipse, if you're out there, Game On Dude is now my choice for the Vox Populi Award! · 10 hours ago
