Dallas Stewart is pointing Tale Of Verve to the Belmont.

  • Sullivan · What a mistake! Horse ran great but I would hope Stewart had learned by now that it is too much to ask these horses to run big again on the big stage that quickly, specifically in the Belmont. Cool the horse down, bring him back to the barn, and then see. The Super Derby is a good target for the horse, perhaps with a minor stakes at Prairie Meadows in between or a shot on turf much later in the season during the Stars and Stripes at Big Sandy. · 10 days ago
  • Blueyedhusky via Disqus · Another one-trick pony (no pun intended). His Macho Again (2nd in Preakness, 5th in Belmont) did pretty good afterwards, but Commanding Curve and Golden Soul (both 2nd in the KD and 9th in the Belmont), haven't amounted to much. · 1 hour ago
Not sure why but the entries aren't showing up on DRF. This is being run Saturday May 30th right?
It's a bit sad he won't run in the MET Mile (probable to Woody Stephens now). The MET went from a potential race for the ages to now an average rendition.
Would anyone know how late entries (paying a substantial supplemental entry fee), like Conquest Curlinate, have fared in the Belmont Stakes? And how often do these late entries occur? I'm guessing Sarava in 2002 was a late entry but I can't find much data on this angle.
Go Pharoah! I want to be in attendance for a Triple Crown. I attended the first 2 jewels of the crown as I did last year. I root for any horse in this position. It's tough to do and the odds are not in this horse's favor but racing needs it.
Competitive Edge, the unbeaten winner of the Pat Day Mile in his most-recent start, is more likely to run in the Grade 2, $500,000 Woody Stephens Stakes for 3-year-olds on June 6 at Belmont Park rather than the Grade 1, $1.25 million Metropolitan Mile against older horses the same day, trainer Todd Pletcher said. If Competitive Edge does go in the Woody Stephens, Pletcher conceded he likely would not have a runner in the Met Mile. He trains the race’s defending champ, Palace Malice, but it was announced earlier this week Palace Malice would skip the race. “Competitive Edge is possible, but I’m leaning toward the Woody Stephens,” Pletcher said. Article on DRF to be posted later today.
I'm up in the air about Materiality and Made From Lucky. Divining Rod hard 3rd and AP 4th.
Was euthanized Friday after a paddock accident. He was just wrapping up his first season at stud at Saratoga Stud, LLC. RIP
American Pharoah will have to defeat the biggest field of any Triple Crown winner if he is to become the first since Affirmed in 1978. No horse has swept the series facing more than seven contenders in the Belmont.
Just got through watching stretch drive of Derby a zillion times.I have trouble picking up Materiality earlier,but if the trouble they say he had early is accurate,then this colt ran a brave and very good race.I'm going to take Pletcher,home track and posited improvement of this lightly raced guy..plus the 3 weeks rest and make him my Belmont pick.Unless it rains because(in my opinion)no one is going to beat AP on a muddy track.if the track comes up drying and therefore "tiring" from earlier rain I'll take a flier on Itsaknockout who has the pedigree package to make some noise at the distance and who is by several accounts "suddenly training markedly well".
American Pharoah wins the 2015 Belmont Stakes by 8 lengths. You heard it here!
  • amdaman via Disqus · Maybe... if Materiality, Frosted, Keen Ice, Carpe Diem, and Mubtaahij don't enter. · 10 days ago
  • Chicken Dinner via Disqus · No he won't...you heard it here! · 2 hours ago
American Pharoah, Carpe Diem, Frosted, Keen Ice. Ask me next week and I'll have a different line up. lol I do believe Pharoah is going to make history. Carpe Diem may be a better horse than his last race. He didn't use much energy that's for sure. Frosted reminds me of Wicked Strong and Keen Ice's odds, pedigree, etc., makes him appealing. Might toss Carpe for Materiality. I don't see the bottom 4 hitting the board so I've narrowed it down to 6 horse to choose my super from. 2 more horses to go.
Early 10 day forecast for the local area. Calls for 80% chance of afternoon/night thunderstorms for Friday June 5th. Here is hoping that they are isolated and do not carry over into Saturday. Maybe those rain dances that Pharoah is doing in between his gallops, are maybe working.
Coolmore has sold Cape Blanco to JBBA in northern Japan -- they they have enough Galileo representation, and Japan would like more...

  • Northport · Apparently it is a two year lease, not a sale. I guess if his progeny start burning it up in North America he will return to Ashford at the end of his lease · 215 days ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · When you're career resume' says you have wins in the G1 Irish Derby, G1 Irish Champion Stakes, G1 Man O'War Stakes, G1 Arlington Million, & G1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic, any country with a quality breeding program is gonna want to breed with that stallion if possible. Because he had 5 major G1 wins for his career, something that often gets lost in the shuffle about Cape Blanco was his beating Epsom Derby & Arc winner Workforce to win the G2 Dante Stakes at York as 3YO and as a 2YO his winning the G2 Futurity Stakes & G3 Tyros Stakes in Ireland. · 13 hours ago
Moonlit Stroll, a narrow third in last month's G1 Humana Distaff, has been euthanized after breaking down during a workout on May 23rd
Right now I have to toss this horse. I just don't believe he can compete here in America. The change of feed, change of jockey, etc. I'll take my chances betting against him rather than with him.
Mylute, fifth in the 2013 Kentucky Derby and third in the Preakness when trained by Tom Amoss, will make his first start for Todd Pletcher on Friday in a $85,000 third-level allowance race going a one-turn mile at Belmont Park. It will be Mylute's first start since he ran in the Governor's Cup last August 2. According to DRF
  • tmallios via Disqus · As is the norm, they are giving Mylute a Cookie for his comeback race. This is done all over the country. As good as Mylute is, this is truly a public workout. For NYRA to do this, i am sure that the connections have un-officially commited to a Stakes Race at Belmont for his next out. Assuming of course he comes out in good order. · 21 hours ago
anyone know if this horse is in training?//
Far Right is nominated to a mile stake race at Prairie Meadows this Saturday. Not sure if they entered him yet, or if they will.
East Hall and My Point Exactly on there way to Penn National, should be a fun weekend.
