The Native Diver was certainly all about the Hollendorfer barn. Not only did the trainer win the Native Diver for a second time – the previous came with Heatseeker (2007) – he also finished 2-3 as favored Hear the Ghost and Rousing Sermon completed the trifecta behind Blueskiesnrainbows.Read More

The tradition of California-bred Thoroughbred runners is a grand one. Horses the ilk of Morvich, Bed o’ Roses, Determine, Swaps, T.V. Lark, Decidedly, Hill Rise, Native Diver, Quicken Tree, Ancient Title, Crystal Water, Flying Paster, Snow Chief, Best Pal, Free House, Tiznow, Lava Man and Acclamatio...Read More
Check out this yummy field. The long awaited return of Setsuko, but better than that, three Big Guys in here Blueskies can set it up for Sermon and Ghost. Or if Blueskies rear end is in a settled down mood, he could win, too. Love 'em all, but thinking Sermon is running great now. Just have a feed bucket past the finish line for him. You should see how solid looking he is. Looks like Fury will be trying turf this season. I would tend to say no to Drill and Mobilized. Thought Slim Shadey would be running on turf only.
In Saturday’s fourth race at Betfair Hollywood Park, one of America’s best geldings of recent years, Game On Dude will be favored to take his speed wire-to-wire in the $250,000 Native Diver Handicap.

  • buds · The Native Diver is a prime example. A race where he is running against a field of horses that havent won more than a Grade 3, over the last 2 years. · 501 days ago ·
  • goblin · buds, Your above statement said that "the Dude prefers synthetic dirt." So, three of us responded to that assertion. I would like to see him run against other older males outside the state of California as well. Mary Z.'s idea of the Foster was a viable option--he did not do badly at Churchill in the BCC 2011. The Oaklawn Handicap will be coming up in the spring--a couple of us mentioned that race on a different thread. Baffert frequently sends his 3y/o's to Arkansas; maybe GOD as well this year? · 501 days ago ·
