  • Floridaf · After seeing yesterday's race, I concur. Fort Loudon made me a full-out believer in his capabilities at Calder by beating Trinniberg. · 646 days ago ·

If, like Ricky Bobby, your mantra is, “I wanna go fast,” then be sure to tune in for the Summit of Speed. If that doesn’t satisfy your speedy tendencies, then nothing will.Read More
  • BrianZipse · With Hansen sticking with routes for now, looks like I will have to wait to see him and Trinniberg hook up. I expect Trinniberg to win which ever race he enters in the Summit of Speed. · 649 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · I have to agree with you there, Brian. Throw out the Derby, and he's undefeated this year, all in graded stakes. I would like to see Hansen and Trinniberg hook up, too. · 649 days ago ·

A year ago, Bisnath Parboo was a relatively unknown trainer struggling to make it on the New York circuit with fewer than career 15 winners on his résumé. Now, Parboo could be headed to the Breeders' Cup after his Giant Ryan rallied to a neck victory over Irrefutable in the $350,000 Smile Sprint Han...Read More
SASSY IMAGE (Broken Vow), like numerous professional sports teams, is a world-beater at home but highly vulnerable when she hits the road. However, a road win Saturday in the $350,000 Princess Rooney H. (G1) at Calder would greatly enhance her prospects for an Eclipse Award as champion female sprint...Read More

Locally-based pair Big Drama and Mambo Meister, with a combined 13 wins at Calder Race Course and both entering off wins over the track, are two of the horses to beat in the $350,000 Smile Sprint Handicap (gr. II) on July 10. The six-furlong Smile Sprint is one of four graded races on Calder’s Summi...Read More
  • rossington · Big Drama looked pretty solid winning the 6 furlong Ponch Handicap at Calder in June. I think he'll be the betting choice, just slightly over Mambo Meister for the Smile Sprint Handicap this weekend at Calder. Mambo Meister could be a very difficult opponent for Big Drama. But Big Drama has always ran awfully well at Calder. I think that's just enough to give him the edge. Calder in June. Hard to see anybody on the card that will beat Big Drama over 6 furlongs at Calder this weekend · 1377 days ago ·
