  • Floridaf · Looking forward to seeing Mucho Macho Man build off his 2nd place Classic finish last year and turn it into a win this year. · 177 days ago ·
This year, the Gold Cup could determine a championship, complete an historic triple, determine a path to the Breeders Cup, and define a career.Read More

  • Mary Z. · I guess the lack of larger fields would be lamented. · 210 days ago ·
  • dani.pugh · He has two very good shots in a top three year old and older male. I'd take those shots too. He also has a horse that was a group one turf winner, at this distance, who can apparently run on dirt, so again, why not give him the shot? Baffert I think overenters sometimes. Entering some that don't really have a legit shot. Pletcher's three all have good reasons as to why they are in this race. · 210 days ago ·

  • AndyScoggin · Wise Dan and Princess seem like locks with Palace Malice one Travers away to become a lock. · 253 days ago ·
  • rafirox · Matt Shifman, thanks for writing this. I think you got 3 out of the 5 correct. Princess of Sylmar and Wise Dan are practically locks, and Palace Malice is my pick for the 3yo champ. · 252 days ago ·
Despite a tumultuous leadup to the race itself, Successful Dan ran his eyeballs out as the stable second-string. A far from perfect trip proceeded a fast finishing second place in one of the best races in the nation this year. Now maybe Morton Fink and Wise Dan can win the Fourstardave with some pea...Read More

  • james.farrell.3760 · I'm glad Wise Dan didn't run in The Whitney,now I get to see the reigning Horse of the Year run in person this saturday up at Saratoga in the Fourstardave Handicap. · 260 days ago ·
  • myjumper21 · Exactly!what is wrong with you people????... leave the horse alone!!!!!!!! he needs to stay on what he's used to and knows and has consistency on. If anything try him over long distance turf please! not dirt! he hasn't ran in dirt in a whole year, plus he has only been on dirt a few times. If they wanted him to be on dirt they should have got him on dirt a loonnngg time ago.. but of course I'm happy they didn't, he's a fantastic turf horse · 260 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · Fort Larned has got to get over his gate problems. When he breaks on top, like the Stephen Foster and Breeders Cup, he can beat anyone, but if he doesn't, like the Oaklawn Handicap and Whitney, he is in trouble. Ian Wilkes is a good horseman and I hope Fort Larned will be ready for the Breeders Cup. · 263 days ago ·

  • amino998 · Thanks for the tip, mdracing >> now for the rant >> Whitney Invitational HANDICAP? The defending Whitney and BC Classic champ gets in with 122 and only gives from 3-5 lbs to the top contenders { 5 lbs to a non-stakes winner}. Baffert must have considered the 119 and 118 issued to Paynter and Liaison an UNvitation >> A repeat winner would be a *highlight* for the sesquicentennial, but really? They face a more difficult choice of weights for the Fourstardave. · 265 days ago ·

Ian Wilkes, trainer of defending Whitney champion Fort Larned (No. 3, 7-5 morning-line odds): “That’s why I’ve got [jockey] Brian [Hernandez, Jr.]. He’s tactical; he can sit behind.
