  • Euro Trash · In a race of this distance on an American oval, it would be unwise to not play it both ways. You never know which horse will handle all those turns best. · 241 days ago ·

That team returns this year with the British-bred Dandino in hopes...Read More

  • icyhotboo · I thought it was between him and Boisterous and when Boisterous didn't get the soft ground it left him alone. Anyone who challenged him would have taken themselves out too.25/49 are about right for turf · 605 days ago ·
  • gelded1 · I agree that Boisterous needed a slow or yielding course to have a shot and I too dismissed him for that reason. They were about 2 secs slower at the 3/4 and mile than the Secretariat Stakes that ran earlier at 1 1/4 .Smart ride by Ramon . · 605 days ago ·

Irish-bred Australian-owned Jakkalberry lived up to his advance billing as the horse to beat in the inaugural edition of the $400,000 American St. Leger when the son of Storming Home overtook the pace-setting Illinois-bred Ioya Bigtime to win the mile and eleven-sixteenths race by 2 ¼ lengths in 2:4...Read More

Well folks, as if three gigantic stakes races weren’t enough for you on Million Day, the powers that be have now added a fourth! Yes, it’s the American St. Leger run at the very odd distance of a mile and 11/16. Anyone wishing to contend in this race must have the stamina to last quite a ways. I mea...Read More

Judging by the respon...Read More

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all enjoyed your hibernation from Chicago racing! This unusually warm Chicago weather has not required a thaw from the normal deep-freeze we’re accustomed to seeing here. Rather, this warmer weather has already sprouted the 2012 spring and summer stakes schedule for Illino...Read More
