After her neck winning thriller over Theyskens’ Theory in Saturday’s Garden City Stakes (Gr. I), I began to ponder about all of the grey and roan thoroughbreds out there today. The greats usually come few and far between but last couple years have proven different as there are a handful of them whic...Read More
Turbulent Descent and Zazu both turned in excellent performances on Saturday, proving the 3-year-old filly division remains strong, and form has held up exceptionally well during the year.Read More

  • BigAConfidential · Nice work as always, Brian. Agreed on Zazu, game in defeat. Very interesting to see where she goes from here. Love to see her come east for the Beldame. · 1066 days ago ·
  • KyOaksRunner · Thanks Joe. I'm guessing they'll send her back against her own age group next time. If she doesn't she risks losing the award if another filly (like It's Tricky) continues to dominate their age group. · 1065 days ago ·
Zenyatta ran her record to a perfect 18-for-18 while winning the...Read More

  • lsbrilliance77 · there's a chance that ZAZU will Win over SWITCH. But, Hummm, I wouldn't bet on it. lol :) · 1068 days ago ·
  • lsbrilliance77 · Or Would I? I think I'd put them both at the top, I like the name Switch better, because of the singing group back in the days · 1068 days ago ·
Saturday’s Pick 6 from Del Mar includes four Polytrack races and two grass events. The feature race is the Grade 1 Clement L Hirsch for fillies and mares traveling a mile and a sixteenth on synthetic footing.

  • podduenas · pacepal_pete you forgot to mention another great West Coast horse, Blind Luck who also won the Kentucky Oaks and is the best 3yr old female out there and will probably win the Lady's Classic this year---Forget about Rachel Alexandra VS Zenyatta, Zenyatta is better----I want to see · 1430 days ago ·

Sunday’s pick six from Del Mar includes the Grade 2 Best Pal Stakes for 2-year-olds traveling six one one-half furlongs on Polytrack. J P’s Gusto is the 2-1 morning line favorite but is stuck down on the rail and will not offer much value. Western Mood could be sitting on ready in his 3rd career sta...Read More
The Zenyatta camp held back from an all out commitment to run her in the G1 Clement L. Hirsch until she got a few "strolls around the Polytrack".  I was at the barn today and the report is all systems go!  The hesitation to commit stemmed from a concern about Zenyatta's affinity for the Po...Read More

  • cugel the clever · Z beats a bunch of nobodies by a short head in Standardbred time (1:45+ for 8 1/2 furlongs). What a farce. Most NW3/L have better fields than this. Will be interesting to see how honest is the Beyer figure for this race. No way it should be over 90. · 1432 days ago ·
  • sdnaples · Hey Cugel the Stupid.....Zenyatta let the speed horses run the 1/2 in 50 and then beat them down the stretch. · 1432 days ago ·
