Palm Beach


What the Nation is saying about the Palm Beach...

  • Sully · Storming Inti looks tough. Who can run with him early? Looking for a gate-to-wire win from the rail. · 48 days ago ·
  • jinlie01 · Storming Inti is definitely the lone speed/pacesetter..I can see him controlling the pace throughout but with his expected short price and hoping Gala Award applies some pressure...taking a shot with Mr. Speaker (he can be in stalking position) and intrigued with Smart Cover's return. · 47 days ago ·
Gradually stretched out by trainer Mark Hennig, Cabo Cat will get his longest test yet in Saturday’s $150,000 Palm Beach (G3) on the Gulfstream Park turf. Read More

  • travel_vic · Early horse on an well known EARLY track........IF this one can reproduce that effort anywhere close (and against an honest, realisitic pace) then the giant might be something to consider. These three year olds sometimes get good quick as Paytner did last year. · 406 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · Sorry if I ruined your odds, gowithnybred. Travel_vic, that's what I'm trying to spot: a 3-year old with the potential to improve quickly and possibly upset the chalk. · 406 days ago ·

  • zxswordxz · So far, I'm watching four horse for my derby pick: Tiz the Truth, Verrazano, Proud Strike and Violence. · 426 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · I find it interesting that not only did Elmutahid finally win when stretched out to 9 furlongs for the first time, but he did so in his first start on dirt. Looks like he relished both the distance and the new surface. I'll have to give him another look for tomorrow's FOY. · 418 days ago ·
It was less than a month ago that Dale Romans received the Eclipse Award as champion trainer of 2012 during ceremonies at Gulfstream Park for his work with stable stars such as Little Mike, Shackleford, Dullahan and Silver Max to name a few.Read More

Count Brian Zipse as one who feels strongly that Dullahan should be pointed to the Breeders’ Cup Turf, and not the Breeders’ Cup Classic.Read More

  • footlick · have to agree with cugel the clever if either Danedream or Snow Fairy come. But I think it might be a slim chance that Danedream comes because the Arc takes alot out of a horse. But they said last year they were coming, but afer her Arc win they rerouted her to the Japan Cup. Snow Fairy would possibly go to the Far East again also. · 596 days ago ·
  • LAZMANNICK · Of course if Danedream or Snow Fairy did come and shold happen to lose there is always the book of "One Hundred Excuses" to fall back on. · 596 days ago ·

  • AndyScoggin · It was quite a meeting at Gulfstream. Seven likely Derby starters ran well at Gulfstream: Hansen, Union Rags, Dullahan, Gemologist, Take Charge Indy, Trinniberg, and Went the Day Well. · 716 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · Horse of the Meet is now officially included! Matt, it was a great meet, and I was fortunate enough to see both the Swale and the Gulfstream Park Handicap. Later this week I will likely have a piece up on the Derby chances of the seven colts you named. · 716 days ago ·

  • ruffian751 · @tim - I'm sorry, but if we don't put the copyright notice, those images will get screen-grabbed and used all over the place. It is unfortunate we have to do it, especially for the fans. But, there are actually website that make money, even farms, who have lifted images they had more than enough money to pay for. Again, I wish the situation were otherwise. Hope you still enjoy the images. · 744 days ago ·

  • Eclipse First · Nice race from both HG and Dullahan, thinking we might see a reversal of result @ Keeneland...Dullahan startin' to remind me a bit of Paddy O'Prado--and that is a GOOD thing. · 765 days ago ·
  • El Kabong · That was a great race. Dullahan will prevail next out but I wouldn't mind one bit if he didn't. We know he's fine one dirt and he looks to have put on good muscle and speed. Despite the fast fractions, he was much closer to the front end this time and Kent had him make a dirt move on that turn. Very good practice. And those 11+ he posted in the last 3 furlongs coming home were most impresseive. I really liked what I saw from Dullahan given this was his first back. I'm all aboard his ride to Kentucky if he gets a good trip in the Bluegrass and hits the board, and I'm sure he will. Most improved horse from last year that I've seen so far. · 764 days ago ·
