What the Nation is saying about the King's Bishop...

I believe it was Sun-Tzu who first talked about losing the battle and winning the war. A modern racetrack parlance of the famous saying might sound something like this … there is nothing wrong with losing the King’s Bishop, if you can win the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

Capo Bastone may not have been the preferred Todd Pletcher runner going in, but you’d never have known it after watching him motor home like a runaway locomotive down the Saratoga stretch. Read More

I have to admit that THIS year, this far excites me FAR more than the travers. None of the slassic sistance 3 year olds stike my fancy, but we have some decent sprinters.
Forty Tales, one of three entrants for trainer Todd Pletcher, will attempt to extend his winning streak to four and earn his first Grade 1 victory when he competes in the $500,000 Foxwoods King's Bishop on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course.Read More
With Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez in the irons, Declan's Warrior fired a bullet five-furlong work in 59.52 seconds on the main track Thursday morning in preparation for the Grade 1, $500,000 Foxwoods King's Bishop on August 24.Read More

So I see the connections of Willy Beamin are at it again. For the second time in the past three months, the three-year-old son of Suave will attempt to wheel right back in a graded sprint just days removed from competing in a two-turn stakes race. The first time he did the deed, things could not hav...Read More

One of the most commonly used phrases in racing today is: draw a line through it. In racing many people use that catch phrase to narrow down their handicapping choices and trainers frequently talk about their horse’s chances based on those words.Read More

  • Floridaf · When it comes to the end of the year, this is going to be one of the races we "draw a line through." In all seriousness, I'm having a heard time betting against Alpha. · 600 days ago ·

The connections might try to play down a budding rivalry, but there is little question Trinniberg vs. Currency Swap is one of the best confrontations in racing. Read More

Hall of Fame trainer Jonathan Sheppard said Monday morning he will run Ever So Lucky in the Grade 1, $500,000 Foxwoods King’s Bishop on the Travers Day card. The seven-furlong race is expected to attract the top 3-year-old sprinters in the country, including Currency Swap and Trinniberg. Read More
The last time Trinniberg raced at Saratoga, he was the longest shot in the field, sent off at nearly 70-1 in last year’s Grade 1 Three Chimneys Hopeful. His return to the Spa in next Saturday’s Grade 1 Foxwoods King’s Bishop likely is to be quite different, with three graded stakes wins since then, ...Read More
