  • Sullivan · Results are up :) Congrats to AnnaK for her two point lead over jet fast delivery and triple_double! https://sites.google.com/site/hrnderby/rankings · 1308 days ago
  • CauseForConcern · Sully, a belated congrats for your inclusion into last week's Trifecta Club. Didn't realize you had also aced the race. · 1308 days ago
Hoppertunity-100 Tapiture-99 Ride On Curlin-98 Strong Mandate-96 all good beyers so there is hope
Tapiture was by far the best in this race but the jock had him pinned in with no where to go and Smith kept him in as long as he could. That's a race riding Jock! Golden rule in racing ....If you have the best horse you keep him in the clear! Asmussen needs a jockey change if he wants the Derby.

  • tmallios1 · Then why was your original premise of this conversation ,that the Blinkered one and The Hopper should of come down. Sounds like we are doing a bit of a Michael Jackson Moonwalk and backtracking the words. I just went back and saw the replay,and to show you how stupid the Stewards are that you agreed with. They flashed the 1rst,2nd and 4th place finishers. The horse that initiated the bumping was the #4. Why on earth would they flash his number. Were they going to disqualify him for the hell of it and put him last. The 2 horses he fouled finished ahead of him. Give it up Vic and go for a new proffession at the track. · 1310 days ago
  • indiancharlierules · Borel gets on tapiture next. Good luck with this horse getting a mile and a quarter in may, no chance. · 1310 days ago
So there I was...we decided as soon as they crossed the wire for the Razorback that we would head to the paddock and get a good spot to see the Rebel entries, and we did. I was pretty soaked from standing close to the finish line all day. So I'm studiously studying my form when I realize the guy standing next to me on the fence in the paddock is Jack Van Berg. People started to realize he was there, and some horse owner-types stopped and talked to him for a minute. A few of the folks started to introduce themselves to him, and he was incredibly gracious to everyone. A man brought his young teenage daughter up to meet him and Mr. Van Berg took off his hat and shook her hand and said he was very glad to meet her and asked her a couple of questions. After the horses left the paddock I said to him, "Mr, Van Berg, I want you to know that I sure loved your horse Gate Dancer." He said, "Yeah, he was a great one." I told him that pretty-much every time I watch the '84 BCC I get a little wattery-eyed. He said that race was the toughest to take, a elaborated a little. Then I thanked him for talking to me.

  • striped mentality · Yeah lol, it was a very exciting stretch run though. · 1310 days ago
  • Jay S. · Well, not if you invested in Kobe's Back. :) Yes, it was great. I felt Strong Mandate should've been placed 3rd with a DQ of Ride On Curlin. My wife had $5 to win on Hoppertunity, so she was enjoying it. Why Hoppertunity? Because her parents once had a dog named "Hoppy." :) · 1310 days ago
Nathan you asked me how Gov Charlie looked on speed figs in the land of Governor Clinton. Let me just say,i would not bet him if you guaranteed the investment. Not that fast of a horse. Boots and ears on the ground are telling me that Called to Serve is absolutely primed and ready to answer the call. Our Cajun dissapointment Hoppertunity almost looks to good in the Rebel. Gets extra full endorsement from Blaffs. With 2014 Eclipse winner Close Hatches starting the Parade. Cold All Stakes Pick 3.Do not know if you saw Aq. race 7 yesterday,that was our alternative distance race. Does not matter. Pal Rudolfo won both legs. VYJACK is having his final prep work tommorrow. Sunday will be in Rudys barn at The Sleezy. Hope he does not visit the restrooms. Now the serious training will begin. Hopefully the racing Secretary does for us what BFF PJ Campo did for Shug in Fla.

  • buzzcat859 · We will get a better payday(if he wins) than u might think Florida F. They will bet Kobes Back@Lukas-rosario · 1313 days ago
  • Floridaf · Good point, buzzcat. I'm thinking Strong Mandate will take a lot of money, too. · 1313 days ago
Tapiture's the Best bet

  • Sully · Best bets are Hoppertunity & Ride on Curlin! · 1314 days ago
  • buzzcat859 · im sticking with tapiture since he toyed with the field last time being green · 1313 days ago
Is this the correct Post Positions?
  • Mimi Hxx · It is the same order that was on HRTV when they were talking to Oaklawn about the race. · 1315 days ago
I love Hoppertunity in this spot but watch for Sheltowee's Boy or Street Strategy to spring the upset.

  • shackleford · Looks like a good pace set up for Kobe's Back, let's see if he is good enough. Tapiture was very strong in his Southwest win. Hopefully Strong Mandate moves forward off that race as well. · 1315 days ago
  • tmallios1 · Jenna you may have the angle there. Horse has run 2 huge races with strong pace. Calvin must like him alot.He is jumping off of ROC to ride. · 1315 days ago
Wonder whose going to win the Rebel...
