What the Nation is saying about the Princess Rooney Handicap...

will be run as a G2 next year which makes little sense to me seeing as runners of past 3 editions included Sassy Image, Musical Romance, Judy the Beauty, Holiday Soiree, and Sweet Cassiopeia.
Not the marquee name going in, Starship Truffles served notice of her sprinting ability in the G1 Princess Rooney Handicap.Read More

  • Floridaf · After seeing yesterday's race, I concur. Fort Loudon made me a full-out believer in his capabilities at Calder by beating Trinniberg. · 651 days ago ·

If, like Ricky Bobby, your mantra is, “I wanna go fast,” then be sure to tune in for the Summit of Speed. If that doesn’t satisfy your speedy tendencies, then nothing will.Read More
  • BrianZipse · With Hansen sticking with routes for now, looks like I will have to wait to see him and Trinniberg hook up. I expect Trinniberg to win which ever race he enters in the Summit of Speed. · 654 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · I have to agree with you there, Brian. Throw out the Derby, and he's undefeated this year, all in graded stakes. I would like to see Hansen and Trinniberg hook up, too. · 654 days ago ·

It's a trait that fascinates race fans like no other. When a horse drops back to last, well behind even the second to last horse, before unleashing a firestorm rally that carries their number from last to first, it is always thrilling. When this last-to-first rush happens in only the time it takes t...Read More

  • Winplacsho · That was visually the best race of the year. I know they went fast early & crawled home late, but no one gains that much ground in the stretch at Calder, EVER! · 1013 days ago ·

  • 4everZenyatta · Easily one of the best races I have ever seen. Just stunning. I am a huge MIke Smith fan and was watching the race, and when she dropped back so far, I was like "Shit, he lost" so I went back tor eadnig and then I heard the call that she was gaining. I started screaming. It was just an amazing ride by Mr.Smith and a great run by Sassy's Image. · 1013 days ago ·
