Ridden by Javier Castellano, Prince Will I Am held off Free Fighter by 2 1/2 length to win the 1 1/2-mile race in 2:38.40. Prince Will I Am ...Read More
Prince Will I Am, the talented 3-year-old who was disqualified from second to 10th in the Breeders’ Cup Marathon (gr.

Cloudy's Knight, a 9-year-old gelding out of S J Stables, won the $150,000 W.L. McKnight Handicap on Saturday at Calder Race Course in Miami Gardens.Read More
Today's race in the W.L. McKnight Handicap is a prime example of why I will not bet on Pressious Passion. Although he ran one of the best races of his career in this year's Breeders Cup Turf, finishing a very game 2nd to Conduit, Pressious Passion is what I call a 50-50 horse. If the right one show's up, he'll take you wire to wire. But, as in about 2 of every 3 races he run's, if he's challenged on the pace, or run's off with too big of a lead, he's always a target for a strong closer. His connection's, IMO, need to find some middle ground with this horse. He could be a front runner without having to blow out to a 15 length head start. That's what cost him against Conduit. That's also what cost him today against a horse in Cloudy's Knight that had already proven himself to be a strong closer in this year's Breeders Cup Marathon. If Pressious Passion continue's in his style of running, he'll continue to run himself out of 2 of every 3 races that he run's in. IMO.
Now that the gifts have been opened, the meals behind us, and the Christmas tree’s stint soon to end, racing fans turn their attention back to the greatest game in the world.  The 26th of December means the same thing every year, the opening day of Santa Anita and the normal return of racing in...Read More
Who’s that horse? This is a mile and a half marathon, and he’s opening up by ten, fifteen, twenty lengths! Has the rider lost his mind? There is no way he is going to have anything left for the stretch...Read More
After a season that included two Grade 1 wins, Presious Passion will try to close out 2009 like he did in ’08 and ’07—by winning the W. L. McKnight Handicap (G2) at Calder Race Course.Read More
