What the Nation is saying about the Suburban Handicap...

New York should be the racing circuit that shows that change is both important and necessary if racing is going to advance.Read More

  • AndyScoggin · Mike in SB -- The big event at SAR is Travers Day amongst a lot of other great stakes races. Could the Spa handle another big event in July? · 62 days ago ·
  • buckpasser · I personally like the schedule, especially with the number of races for four and up. Personally as to Saratoga, I would rather see the Woodward back at Belmont for the fall as it was before. If they want a race at a mile and a quarter for Saratoge, why not resurrect the Saratoga Cup. It was one of the storied races at the Spa years ago, and won by a veritable who's who in racing. · 62 days ago ·
Could the resurgence of the Handicap Triple save racing?Read More

  • Mike in SB · I would like a series of races like the old Championship Racing Series for older horses, actually in every division of racing. It would be better in my opinion to have the races all around the country not just in New York. Anyway the idea of a handicap triple crown would not work today since no trainer wants to run with added weight, most of the handicaps today are run with the high weight actually carrying less weight than in weight for age races. Handicaps, with real weights, are a thing of the past. · 158 days ago ·
  • EP Taylor · take a page out of the Qipco Champions Series, The Global Sprint Challenge etc etc. A Series of races for each division. Then load up the purses and Market the heck out of it. · 158 days ago ·

  • DeadHeat · No denying that Mott has a ton of good horses in his stable this year. He has arguably the 3 of the top 5 older males running. · 590 days ago ·
  • CauseForConcern · Probably one fact that's most impressing, is that THAS was one of the early Derby favorites, but after the Florida Derby, Mott had to put him on the shelf. He was patient in bringing him back, and, if Mott ever believed in him, then the horse could be close to being back on course. · 590 days ago ·
The big question before the Woodward was: who will show up with their best effort from the three millionaire runners – Mucho Macho Man, To Honor and Serve, or Stay Thirsty? Read More

  • AndyScoggin · BSF of 105 for THAS. FloridaF--I have a feeling that Shack might be done for the year. · 592 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · That isn't what Romans is saying, but you never know with these things. I really like Shack, so I'm hoping that he isn't done. · 592 days ago ·
