Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

If the West's are lucky enough to have another 3YO next year that can compete in the Derby, do you think they'll participate?

Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

The fact that SirWinston went off at only 10-1 (the same as BourbonWar and Spinoff) speaks volumes about this group. From a handicapping perspective one had to be pretty forgiving and optimistic about his chances. Non-winner at age 3. (has any horse done that before?) Failed to win in two G2s and tw...

It won't be surprising if the track superintendent takes some criticism after the races today for the souped up track.

If they were to card the exact same race back in 3 weeks, McKinzie would be 1/5.

he says it'll be Tacitus all alone at the wire, a ways back to runner up Spinoff to complete the exacta, then War Of Will for the trifecta and finally Tax to round out the superfecta.
