I think this is a much tougher year in the division, but if she keeps her form she should have no trouble repeating.

This is what I heard today. Hope it works out.

Racing / Older Male Division Up In The Air
June 25, 2020, 06:17:21 AM
It is pretty wild how this year's older male division is up in air.

Who knows if Maximum Security and Game  Winner will race  again let alone regain their form.

Combatant appeared out of nowhere to take the G1 Santa Anita Handicap.

Gift Box and Higher Power have not returned to their previous form.

A lot of questions.

Racing / HOTY- Justify vs. Accelerate vs. Monomoy Girl
November 13, 2018, 08:10:34 PM
Well  , many thought Justify had sown up Horse of the Year with his Triple Crown win. Then he was retired without racing again.

Who would have thought after his 4 G1 win sophomore season zgere would be two other horses who surpassed that mark?

Accelerate won the Santa Anita Handicap, the Gold Cup, the Pacific Classic, the Awesome Again and the Breeders Cup Classic.

Monomoy Girl won a G1 Ashland, G1 Kentucky Oaks, G1 Acorn,  G1 Coaching Club American Oaks, 2nd by DQ in the G1 Cotillion and the G1 BC Distaff. A whisker away from 6 G1 wins.

Monomoy Girl may have actually faced the toughest schedule of all the horses up for HOTY.

Its a very tough call and that may end up benefiting Justify.

Racing / 2018 Breeders Cup
November 13, 2018, 08:02:37 PM
Well, a number of favorites won, but I had the benefit of attending and it was a ton of fun.

Seeing Enable sweep the double of the BC Turf and Arc was amazing and Magical was magical.

Accelerate proved he could win away from home. Roaring Lion did not like kickback, but won European HOTY. Mendelssohn was on a suicide mission on a tiring track on the inside but still managed to finish only 4 lengths behind the winner. Gunnevera finished second again. Thunder Snow finished a close third. Yoshida showed he probably needed a bit more seasoning before the race, or maybe the mile distance is better for him. McKinzie and West Coast were asked to do too much too soon. And Catholic Boy just didn't have it outside of NY.

Abel Tasman showed she is ready for the next stage of her life. Monomoy Girl proved to be pretty special winning the Distaff with Midnight Bisou third.Great to hear she is coming back.

City of Light proved tough in the Dirt Mile travelling better tham Catalina Cruiser.

And we shall see if Game Winner can become the third BC Juvenile/Kentucky Derby winner. In 2006, the BC was at Churchill and Street Sense became the first. In 2010, 2009 BC Juvenile winner Uncle Mo was scratched the day before the race.

Racing History / Tribute To Sham
May 25, 2018, 11:26:38 AM
One of my favorite horses of all time is Sham. I have read more books on him than Secretariat. I just love this horse. I love Big Red too, but I will always love the little horse that could...

Aside from Winstar's games...

Blended Citizen
Bandua
Bravazo
Free Drop Billy
Gronkowski
Hofburg
Justify
Noble Indy
Restoring Hope
Tenfold
Vino Roso

We have eleven here which is a nice field number wise if they all go, but with the best horses challenging being closers have the connections thought about who is going to generate pace up front to provide a chance for the closers to close? LOL

Racing / Preakness Picks
May 16, 2018, 08:12:05 AM
Well, the Kentucky Derby offered us a record making performance by Justify has he became the first unraced 2 year old Kentucky Derby winner since Apollo.

I was amazed at his performance because he was able to do it being so lightly raced and having his raced bunched together so much.

Do we have another Triple Crown winner on our hands?

It certainly looks like it may be the case, but it seems that way every year. I remember last year reading that everyone thought Always Dreaming would do it, then before that Nyquist would do it. However, Justify seems pretty remarkable.

I think Lukas may have something to say about the outcome with his entries. They are training well. I also wonder about Diamond King and John Servis.

Looking forward to the post-position draw, though it really has seemed inconsequential in this race.

Racing / 2018 Dubai World Cup
April 03, 2018, 10:27:42 AM
6 Track Records...

It was quite an exciting day of racing.

Thunder Snow may be headed back to the US for a campaign which would be great. Hs besting West Coast was impressive in a new track record.

Mendelssohn delivered a very special performance. Some may balk at his competition, but he was pretty impressive and has already shipped well to compete in the BCJ Turf.

Mind Your Biscuits was nothing but amazing bucking the trend by winning far off the pace.

Wow.
