What the Nation is saying about the Kentucky Cup Turf...

The first time I ever laid my eyes on Suntracer was in a maiden special weight at Arlington Park in the summer of 2010. He ran fourth that day on the Polytrack in his second career start.

All hail the Illinois Breeding program! Give me turf or give me death! Bring on the Breeders’ Cup! OK, so sometimes I get a bit overly excited about the horses I like, but there are worse faults to have I think. What’s the reason for my latest bit of racing giddiness? Illinois breds on the turf of c...Read More
  • cpsoren121 · The Pizza Man has been impressive this meet, only loss against tougher graded stakes company. He is rising through the ranks and should be a contender for years to come! Chris Block tends to dominate Chicago racing and he is the foundation for the Illinois breeding program!! · 580 days ago ·

Ioya Bigtime, staked to a loping lead by Jeffrey Sanchez, refused to buckle under relentless pressure from favored Rahystrada to win the $200,000 Kentucky Turf Cup (gr. IIIT) on the grass course at Kentucky Downs Sept. 15. Read More

Cloudy's Knight, who used last year's Kentucky Cup Turf (gr. IIIT) as a springboard to a remarkable second-half campaign, is back to defend his title.Read More
There is nothing like a couple of days of all-turf racing, to pick your head up and get you back into a handicapping state of mind. Kentucky Downs has full fields of grass racing, over what is the most “European style" course in the country. The one mile and 3/8’s course used to be called Dueling Gr...Read More
One of the under-appreciated experiences offered by Kentucky’s embattled horse racing industry has already reached its midpoint as two days of competition remain in the abbreviated four-day, all-turf meet at Franklin’s Kentucky Downs south of Bowling Green. Run over an undulating European-style 1 3/...Read More
Horses away from racing for a year or more are typically unlikely winners. But Saturday at Kentucky Downs, such layoffs were, surprisingly, the path to victory. Cloudy's Knight, unraced since finishing eighth in the Grade 1 Northern Dancer on Sept. 7 of last year at Woodbine, returned a winner in th...Read More
