  • Floridaf · Baffert does look to be sitting pretty this year, especially since he has the home track advantage. I'm not sure that he'll win all that he has horses in; I have a few that I like better than his contingent, but he is rather loaded. · 576 days ago ·
  • dani.pugh · It is never a given that you'll win everything. The juvenile has a few nice horses. Turbulent Decent is a very good filly, the sprint division still has some nice horses and the Classic division is as deep as i've ever seen. · 576 days ago ·

Even-money favorite Contested came from off the pace to regain her winning form with a two-length victory in the 87th running of the Grade 1, $500,000 Test for 3-year-old fillies on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course.Read More
Contested, a Grade 1 winner who was last in her most recent start, will attempt to regain winning form and earn her most lucrative victory to date when she competes in the 87th renewal of the Grade 1, $500,000 Test on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course.Read More
The champ is back. My Miss Aurelia overcame a bad break to put a little bit of intrigue into her 2012 return to racing. The undefeated, two-year-old filly champion made her debut at Saratoga in the $100,000 Mandy’s Gold, an overnight stake. Read More
  • BrianZipse · All in all it was a solid return performance ... My guess would be the million dollar, Grade 1 Cotillion Stakes at Parx for her next start. · 616 days ago ·

  • Mary Z. · No way is Turbulent Descent going to get the Female Sprint Eclipse. First off, not all of her wins can be considered sprints and her sprint wins weren't exactly fast, which is sort of the main theme of a sprint if I can for once openly like speed. Musical Romance is likewise not a fast sprinter. Too bad the fast females had injuries, like Hilda's Passion or Sassy Image-another one that had some bad races at Gulfstream. Here's a handicapping minor rule I use: throw out bad finishes for fillies at GP and any bad race by a horse that was stuck on the rail there. So I don't really have a pick for top female sprinter but I would really like some explanation as to why Switch was not run on dirt at 7f. as much as possible this year and not all the other experimentation? Not that I'm owed an explanation. Just put one in my stocking if inclined, thanks. Male sprinter: simply put Amazombie. Want more detail? I'll whip out equibase or it's there for all to review. Add in his DQ as a win cuz, truly not long ago he wouldn't have been taken down. Nowadays, yes, ancient times, probably not. · 856 days ago ·
  • GregRiessland · zombie gets the sprint and caleb should get 3 year old male. i say turbulent descent for female sprint. i think she could beat older girls, just like zazu did. · 856 days ago ·
Turbulent Descent and Zazu both turned in excellent performances on Saturday, proving the 3-year-old filly division remains strong, and form has held up exceptionally well during the year.Read More

  • BigAConfidential · Nice work as always, Brian. Agreed on Zazu, game in defeat. Very interesting to see where she goes from here. Love to see her come east for the Beldame. · 982 days ago ·
  • KyOaksRunner · Thanks Joe. I'm guessing they'll send her back against her own age group next time. If she doesn't she risks losing the award if another filly (like It's Tricky) continues to dominate their age group. · 981 days ago ·
