  • KyOaksRunner · Dullahan is such a gorgeous horse, I always feel like I want to pick him because he looks so great, but he's also very erratic in his performances, I'm not sure I'm going to throw my support behind him again. · 363 days ago ·

We are now less than two weeks away from the 30th Arlington Million! To get all of us ready for the epic race, let’s profile a worthy contender, and one of my favorites, that will likely be joining us on August 18th. Read More

  • RichardBlakley · Kudos to the connections for a great job of managing this horse's career--his accomplishments at an age when most racehorses have been retired for years bring to mind two of my other favorite turfers, Cetawayo and John's Call. Love to see Leparoux up, and he figures to get a good stalking position and save ground the whole way. He's already proven he loves Arlington's turf course, if he's within 3-4 lengths of the lead turning for home, look out! · 692 days ago ·

There were times during his career when I thought Tajaaweed might be more, but I’ve come to the realization that he simply will not come out victorious against the best … not that there’s anything wrong with that. The world needs solid grade three horses, and Tajaaweed is a very good one. Read More
Yes, I know Banned has looked great in winning his last two races at Churchill Downs, but anyone at Arlington Park this afternoon for Million Preview Day, has to have a similar thought as me right now … Willcox Inn is in the running to stake claim as the finest sophomore turf horse in the land.

  • christysontheweb · I thought that the Modest was a great race and that Fantasia (albeit a little green in the stretch switching leads) was impressive and most importantly she found all the right openings to give her a great trip given the running style. All I can say is WOW Willcox Inn and Robby A!!! MOST impressive indeed I say they go for the big one. Tajaaweed won nicely too but WI was a tough act to follow...great racing coast to coast yesterday! · 1095 days ago ·

Tuscan Evening figured to get loose on the lead in the Modesty Cap, and she did, setting an exceedingly slow pace.
