What the Nation is saying about the Woodward Stakes...

With the weather outside reaching ridiculous levels of snow and cold, I found myself locked in the house today. It's depressing. Needing a pick me up, I turned to an old friend for memories always sure to put a smile on my face. Of course I am talking about Rachel Alexandra and her magical season of...Read More

  • CauseForConcern · Rachel Alexandra in 2009: Fair Grounds(Louisiana), Oaklawn(Arkansas, twice), Churchill(Kentucky), Pimlico(Maryland, against the boys), Monmouth(New Jersey, against the boys), Belmont(New York, breaking the great Ruffian's record), and Saratoga(New York, against the boys). Seven tracks, six states, three times in the slop, three times against the boys, three times by the margin of nearly twenty lengths. It was a pleasure to see that wonderful run of eight races. Enjoy the replay. · 19 days ago ·

  • tmallios1 · People usually think their best racing skit was about how a Father could be a better "MUDDER"than a Mother. But the betting skit was a Classic. · 141 days ago ·

Warmer temperatures and a break in a very busy schedule allowed me to get to Aqueduct on Sunday to get my 2014 NYRA calendar. Read More

  • travel_vic · Trying for the Belmont again but this time will definitely have a seat! Monsoon rains last out made it challenging, especially in getting back to the hotel and not knowing the city that well. Loads of fun however. ALMOST as good as Saratoga..but the company was superior · 169 days ago ·
  • Mary Z. · You definitely need to look ahead to the warm Spring, Matt. You guys have been in a new Ice Age up there this winter. Will you be at The Belmont again? Maybe Clearly Now will run in the True North. Only sad part of last year's trip was when he lost the Woody Stephens. That and the departure for the desert. P.S., TBG may have a Belmont runner! · 169 days ago ·

  • Mary Z. · I guess the lack of larger fields would be lamented. · 286 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. · 286 days ago ·
Paynter has become an embodiment of so many positive things for fans of horses and racing ... does it really matter if he wins or loses on Saturday?Read More

  • goblin · kurt, You are aware that Paynter had at least four diagnoses, 1)colitis 2)laminitis 3)DIC and 4)cecal abscess? The DIC alone could/should have been his demise. Yet both the Zayat family and the veterinarians themselves requested prayer for this colt. There are examples of several of his vets having asked for prayer and I'll link one such example here by Dr. Mark Cheney. I don't think anyone believes Paynter survived in the absence of modern medicine, so you need not feel insulted. http://www.paulickreport.com/news/thoroughbred-racing/paynter-seriously-ill-diagnosed-with-colitis/ · 312 days ago ·
  • Ruffianlover · And I'm sure many people including vets find it completely insulting for you to completely deny the power of faith. Miracles happen in hospitals every day- both animal and human. Like I said I see it happen all the time. No one knew whether Paynter would pull through or not which is why they asked for prayers. I will pray for you as we'll that you'll be more accepting of the power of faith in your life · 312 days ago ·

  • Mary Z. · Don't worry, SSilence, Flat Out wasn't gelded. I've seen that mistake, about calling him a gelding, made before. Probably has to do with Flat Out still running at age 7. · 315 days ago ·
  • SSilence86 · I saw this mistake before as well. My eyes almost popped out of my head the first time I read it LOL. One of his connections assured me however that he is NOT :) · 315 days ago ·
