What the Nation is saying about the Flower Bowl Invitational...

Taking full advantage of being the lone speed horse in a field of eight, Laughing doled out creeping fractions through the early stages of the Grade 1, $600,000 Flower Bowl Invitational on Saturday and then turned on her speed late to win gate-to-wire by a half-length at Belmont Park. Read More

  • goblin · Just a thought----Little Mike has had his best results in races in which he was ridden by Joe Bravo or Ramon Dominguez.... · 207 days ago ·
  • Sully · Graydar should be an easy winner but coming back from injury causes some concern. Graydar if he returns like we all hope he does. Praetereo is my upset play. I think Easter Gift is a definite underneath play in the gimmicks. · 206 days ago ·
Laughing almost didn't race this year, with nagging minor health issues keeping her away from the track and a Grade 3 victory on her resume that made her an attractive broodmare prospect. Read More

  • travel_vic · Alone on the lead: the best bet in the game. The horse dictates the race to all who follow. Odds will stink however, so will have to look elsewhere IF there is a bet to be found. Watch how the front does in other turfer races UP to that one. · 568 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · I thought Havre de Grace's win was the most impressive of the weekend by far, and with Flat Out winning the Gold Cup, she has to be the favorite for the Classic. Actually a lot of the Breeders Cup races are starting to look pretty good. Havre de Grace, Uncle Mo and the rest in the Classic makes it look like a better race now than it did a few months ago and the Ladies Classic looks wide open now. If the Arc Winner comes over and So You Think runs in the Classic this could be a very good Breeders Cup. · 930 days ago ·
  • DeadHeat · Mike I completely agree about the Classic. The fact that you have some definitive stars now makes the race come up much better. I mean with the list of horses i said in my blog, there are what 6 grade one winner heading for the race? Makes it look much more competitive. · 930 days ago ·
A wide trip and a yielding turf course were no obstacles for Stacelita at Belmont as the filly notched her second consecutive Grade 1 victory with a commanding win in the Flower Bowl. Read More
Stacelita, a five-time Grade 1/Group 1 winner, looks to continue her stateside success in Saturday’s 1 ¼-mile Flower Bowl Invitational. In France, Stacelita won four Group 1 races, including the 2009 Prix de Diane (French Oaks). She made one start in her native country this year, finishing third in ...Read More
  • Rossington · Stacelita is absolutely a class race-mare on the turf!! In all honesty, she's been racing and beating tougher fillies and mares on the turf in France than what she's had to face thus far in America. I absolutely believe Stacelita will win the G1 Flower Bowl Stakes at Belmont this weekend, and will then very likely become favorite, or at the very least, co-favorite, for this year's BC F&M Turf!! I believe Dubawi Height's will win the G1 Yellow Ribbon Stakes and I also believe Cape Blanco will win the G1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic. Securing his third American G1 turf stakes in as many tries, and I think a win in the Joe Hirsch will likely make him favorite for this year's BC Turf!! TJMO. · 934 days ago ·

With Ramon Dominguez aboard, Martin Schwartz’s Stacelita completed major preparations for Saturday’s Grade 1, $500,000 Flower Bowl Invitational with a 1:02.94 five-furlong breeze over soft turf Sunday morning.   “We’re very happy,” said trainer Chad Brown. “We’re on target for the Flower Bowl. ...Read More
  • medlocke · I applaud the switch in jockey's from Joe Bravo to Ramon Dominguez for Stacelita last time when she won the G1 Beverly D. Stakes at Arlington in convincing fashion. I really believe if Stacelita would've had the services of Ramon Dominguez at Monmouth for the G1 United Nations that Stacelita would've beaten Teaks North in that race, too. She got a horrible ride from Joe Bravo in that race. If Stacelita rolls through the Flower Bowl Stakes as impressively as she did the Beverly D.? You better watch out for this mare in this year's BC F&M Turf. Because she'll take a ton of beating, IMO. · 938 days ago ·
  • footlick · @medlocke- I totally agree with you on Stacelita. Very classy. · 938 days ago ·
