What the Nation is saying about the Jockey Club Gold Cup...

Warmer temperatures and a break in a very busy schedule allowed me to get to Aqueduct on Sunday to get my 2014 NYRA calendar. Read More

  • travel_vic · Trying for the Belmont again but this time will definitely have a seat! Monsoon rains last out made it challenging, especially in getting back to the hotel and not knowing the city that well. Loads of fun however. ALMOST as good as Saratoga..but the company was superior · 87 days ago ·
  • Mary Z. · You definitely need to look ahead to the warm Spring, Matt. You guys have been in a new Ice Age up there this winter. Will you be at The Belmont again? Maybe Clearly Now will run in the True North. Only sad part of last year's trip was when he lost the Woody Stephens. That and the departure for the desert. P.S., TBG may have a Belmont runner! · 87 days ago ·

  • https://www.facebook.com/mark.corbin.127 · Glad to see RON THE GREEK win as Big as He did after seeing the "SO CALLED PROFESSIONALS" say last week before the race that "HE'S OUTCLASSED"! Well, He sure proved them wrong! He won in very Convincing Fashion and now I would say he is Class! LOL · 200 days ago ·
  • tmallios1 · Mark,who are the proffessionals you mention? What makes you hink their opinion is better than yours.The right to carry a pad and pencil or in todays modern era, an I pad. Does not make them experts.I never heard anyone bad mouth RTG. I f anything i heard it the other way. Many were saying he was a dissapointment after his Gulfstream race and was under achieving. That to me implies that he still has the goods. · 200 days ago ·
On Super Saturday on both the west and east coast at Santa Anita and Belmont Park, the old guard showed up and brought their best. First it was Little Mike, followed by Ron the Greek, and finally out west it was Mucho Macho Man. Read More

  • Floridaf · I always had faith that MMM would finally break through and get that Grade 1 win. What Smith did with Little Mike is exactly why he's such a successful jockey. · 201 days ago ·
  • BrianZipse · Makes an old guy like me feel good about waking up in the morning. · 200 days ago ·
My picks are Palace Malice and Flat Out. The way Cross Traffic crawled home is a big indicator to me that he will be fading terribly in the stretch. I don't believe he'll win. Too many entrants have the energy distribution, and proven it, to go 10f. Cross Traffic will get the lead, quite easily, which will be to his advantage and therefore should not be left out of exotics. I'll leave him out of my top spot. He'll be pressed by both Palace Malice and Alpha. Palace Malice's last race footnotes say "stumbled start; 5w stretch". He was down 2 1/2 in the stretch and lost by less than a length. He dropped 8 lengths back at one point. If he gets a clean break, he'll be able to distribute his energy better to go 10f. He should have won the Travers, and would have if not for the break, so I expect him to win. Alpha is interesting. I'm tempted to say his Woodward effort was in result to the slop, or maybe it was the blinkers? History tells me not to exclude him. I've left out Kmac FTB's and STB's, and I'm not making the mistake again. Flat Out, who is my second choice, loves Belmont Park (5 for 6) and is at the top of his game. Overall, I'll go with Palace Malice- Flat Out- Orb- Cross Traffic. Alpha is a "win or not hit" type of horse, who should be included. Flat Out, Orb and the Malice will all crack the Top 4 for sure. Statistically speaking, Palace Malice is the best horse with the best numbers with the best form. Cross Traffic, believe it or not, according to statistics, should not win here. Also like the "horse for the course" method. Flat Out and Palace Malice both fit. Palace Malice's last five races, statistically, have been improvements. I think if he continues his uptrend and gets a good break, it'll be a race for sexond. Flat Out will be there, for sure, though. For the Beldame, I actually like Princess of Sylmar, but I won't bet on that race.

  • rafirox · Mallios, the "Best Hits of Yogi Bear" made me laugh. That was funny. @Shackleford, I think Cross Traffic can hit the board with a good pace. I think he needs every tactical advantage to win the race, though. @CFC, you're welcome. I hope you have a good day at the track. In terms of betting, I always love Super Saturday. I did great last year, I was red hot and I hit Power Broker in the FrontRunner. Hopefully my luck continues.. · 203 days ago ·
  • rafirox · @Clecliar; I agree, Orb has a chance. I believe he will hit the super, probably the tri, and maybe the exacta. I don't see him winning though. · 203 days ago ·
does anyone know if Super Saturday will be televised?
The line-up on Super Saturday at Belmont Park features five grade one stakes races and a grade two, all six are part of the Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” Series.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.... · 205 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. · 204 days ago ·
Last Gunfighter and Vitoria Olimpics.
Like Last Gunfighter and Flat Out...looking for us good ML Odds
Post Positions- 1) Ron the Greek 2) Orb 3) Last Gunfighter 4) Vitoria Olimpica 5) Alpha 6) Flat Out 7) Palace Malice 8) Cross Traffic

  • tmallios1 · i completely understand.In regards to Cross Traffic,one of the reasons that i am so cocky and confidant is that i am privy to info others are not.Based on what i see in the race Saturday.I think it is difficult to get by C.T. and Flat Out. Orb i think can be a wonderful horse next year. I read in between the lines when i do not have information.Here we are 1 week away and we hear nothing about how good he is doing.Anything is possible,I think the rigors of the triple crown chase might of taken its' toll.You mention Verrazno,i think Todd ommited him,because not only is he a great horseman and trainer.He is also very classy.It is not his time yet to take the spotlight.I may be wrong , but the way he is handling him and giving him the added rest to recover from the hole in the wind at the Haskell. This guy ,just might be the talk of the Breeders Cup after he is done. · 208 days ago ·
  • goblin · Ruffianlover, Isn't Verrazano training up to the BC Dirt Mile? I think most of the horses mentioned in the above article are going to stakes races next weekend and were turning in their final works, with the exception of SB. His post race health condition was sort of FYI? · 208 days ago ·
Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott will be well-represented on Super Saturday with Royal Delta set to defend her title in the Grade 1 Beldame Invitational, Flat Out attempting to turn the hat trick in the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational, Slumber heading to the Grade 1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic I...Read More

My goodness this is a very awesome race heating up, kind of hard to discount any.
Prominent horses trained by Hall of Famer Shug McGaughey turned in Saturday breezes in separate locations, with Kentucky Derby winner Orb working at Fair Hill in Maryland and turf star Point of Entry rejoining the worktab at Belmont after spending the past three months recovering from a non-displace...Read More
This is the obvious next big Stakes race on everones radar.Let us for 1 minute imagine there was a time machine besides us. WE can go back in history to see only one race live.I will put in 1 stipulation.Secreteriats Belmont is off limits and cannot be used. Not that i have anything agaist that race,just think that might be the overwhelming front runner.All aboard!!!

  • mschneider · Tmallios1 - A good day to you aslo. I hope you know I am a huge fan of Verrazano, just not of the opinion he should be 3YO Eclipse winner. Is Cross Traffic the rocket ship you are referring to? · 219 days ago ·
