  • tmallios1 · Penwith is the pick here. Running 2nd time Lasix and off of a race on Fountain of Youth day. For those that do not remember ,that was supposedly the most severe Speed bias track of the meet(at least that is what the Top Billing fans wanted us to believe) This one had no chance that day.Now draws an inside post and Luis should try and repeat his Demoiselle riding strategy. Go to the front and do not look back. Hopefully the end result will be better. · 24 days ago ·
  • buzzcat859 · I love Penwith Tmallios I bet her last time. She always went to the lead and for some strange reason she was nowhere near the lead. Even though she ran decent its a throwout race to me. BET IT ALL LOL · 24 days ago ·

  • Jay S. · Also, the next year with America's Horse winning in the dark at Churchill. Awesome. · 360 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · Forty Niner would have had a say that next year had it not been for the most incompetent ride I have, in all seriousness, EVERy witness when Julie Krone took the almost need to lead Forty Niner off the pace and down by the rail (WHERE no horse save Gulch had moved up all day.) we will never know, but I'll bet several dozen other riders would have not put in such an incompetent move. · 360 days ago ·
If not for a race seven days earlier, Emollient would have been considered one of the most promising three-year-old fillies in the nation, and a big favorite in yesterday’s feature at Keeneland. What a difference a week makes. Rebounding from a 30 length drubbing at the hands of a spectacular perfor...Read More

  • amino998 · The fact that she began her career late in her 3 yo year may have had something to do with it. ;) · 383 days ago ·
  • darlene · I,personally, like that a filly would have to face males prior to Derby to get in As stated the fillies that have won Derby had faced males before the win I don't think this was a mistake or oversight by CD · 383 days ago ·
As it stood, though I could not watch the races live, I was able to get real time results thanks to the very kind people that took pity on me and posted race results and replay links to my Facebook wall. Read More

Mark Hennig, a student of the horse racing game worked with some legendary trainers for going out on his own in the early 90's. Before his stakes winning, Live Lively starts in Gulfstream Park Oaks, he talks about his racing career and today's big race.Read More

  • AndyScoggin · It was quite a meeting at Gulfstream. Seven likely Derby starters ran well at Gulfstream: Hansen, Union Rags, Dullahan, Gemologist, Take Charge Indy, Trinniberg, and Went the Day Well. · 720 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · Horse of the Meet is now officially included! Matt, it was a great meet, and I was fortunate enough to see both the Swale and the Gulfstream Park Handicap. Later this week I will likely have a piece up on the Derby chances of the seven colts you named. · 720 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · If the odds pemit I'm going to throw in a 3/6/8 tri box. UR just needs a prep and EP needs 1st or 2nd, #3 has a lot of upside 2nd off layoff and EP being the fastest horse with about the same LP. Michael Matz may just be there for a tune up for KD even though the purse is big. On a personal note sadly I didn't win the lottery, I didn't even want 1st second for a million - taxes would've been just fine. I think I need another job due to the fact every doctor I go to has at least 3 friends who want to shake my hand for a couple hundred. · 751 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · You made very good points about Yara and Zo Impressive in regards to some of their previous races. Personally, I think Disposablepleasure is much better than her 4th place Davona Dale finish would suggest; just look back to her gritty win in the Demoiselle. I believe the match-up between Eden's Moon and Reneesgotzip will be the best of the weekend in the 3-yo filly division. Maybe we can get another BL/HDG rivalry going. Great analysis, Brian! · 752 days ago ·
  • BrianAppleton · Thanks Ashley! I agree with regard to Disposablepleasure. The Davona Dale was her first race of the year and I think she will benefit off that effort, but I don't think she'll get to the top two. All of these fillies are coming into the races looking really good. · 751 days ago ·
Grace Hall, 2nd to Yara as the 4-5 favorite in the Davona Dale (G2) on Feb 25, will try to turn the tables on that rival in Saturday's Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2). Read More
