The problem is that Remington Park is also running their big older horse race within a week of the Pacific Classic, so they're competing for the same horses.

I wonder if it's lost on horsemen that...

Newspaperofrecord is quickly emulating Analyze It last year.

She's always been fairly rank in her starts though not quite to the point of being a run-off. The Edgewood chart caller claimed she...

Pretty bold ignoring 2 sons of Tapit when playing pedigrees. One of those is Intrepid Heart, who is also a half to Belmont runner-up Commissioner and his broodmare sire is Belmont winner Touch Gold.

I wonder if Shug McGaughey will have a rethink with Code of Honor.

At any rate, in 1985 the 1-2 finishers Spend A Buck (Jersey Derby) and the ill-fated Stephan's Odyssey (Peter Pan) opted out of the...

He was fairly sharp from the gate in all 3 FG starts although he stumbled slightly in the Lecomte and lost his hind end after a handful of strides in the Louisiana Derby.

Long Range Toddy (twice) and Omaha Beach both outfooted him early in his Oaklawn starts. Vekoma, Spinoff, War of Will, and Maximum Security have all displayed front-running speed. Arguably even Tax...

Thought that might be one of the reasons but he's always been a forward work horse so not sure its particularly solid evidence of a change in tactics.

She's been suspect throughout her career.

The two best horses she ever beat when winning were New Money Honey and Holy Helena (in the Alabama) and those were turf horses.

Other than that her claim...

Vino Rosso is unbeaten in races less than 8.5f furlongs. Routers in general excel in these extended sprints, probably due to superior stamina and the likelihood of a fast, contested pace. Note how...

Yep, McKinzie is a perfect example. If he gets collared at short odds in the Big Cap, he might be an enticing price in the Met Mile.
