Even though St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke, the league's second-richest owner to Seattle's Paul Allen, has announced plans for an 80,000-seat football stadium in Hollywood Park, and has the financial and political wherewithal to get it done, the NFL is not ready to name a lead horse in the...
It is with great sadness that I tell all his friends here on Pace and Cap, that Richie P.'s mother died peacefully in her sleep last night. Sorry, I didn't mean that I am sad she died peacefully, but sorry to see her go. I will miss her. Doris was a great lady and was loved greatly by those who...
Here is the other race, similar to the GG race on Thursday...Looks like OTE vs 21.3....The 2 and 3 have finished very close to each other in two previous tandems and look like the ones to beat. Los Bambinos will be running late too but probably too far back in the pack.....3-2 for me...
I noticed a couple of races the next two days that set up OTE. Here is a race at GG with several E types. The 3 and 4 are E's who also have won when they didn't get the lead. The 4 did that against a much faster 1C. The 5 looks perfect from the OTE side. I will take those 2 to win...
CALCULATOR grabbed 10 additional Kentucky Derby points, and a long-overdue maiden win, with a visually-impressive victory over seven overmatched rivals in last Saturday's Grade 3 Sham Stakes at Santa Anita.
Given the finalists, I don’t think anyone could say there was even one mildly surprising winner in the 17 equine and human Eclipse Awards announced Saturday night. In a 2014 racing season that had some controversy – the running of the Breeders’ Cup Classic and PETA’s unfounded allegations against Steve Asmussen, to name two matters that immediately come to m […]
Saratoga Dreamer, who had made his first two starts on turf with mixed results, made a triumphant dirt debut Friday at Aqueduct, overcoming some bad pre-race behavior and a stubborn stretch foe in Regal Minister to win the inaugural $125,000 Rego Park Stakes by a neck.
With the feature race, the Allen Jerkens Stakes, being a two-mile contest on the turf – the type of race rarely run in North America – this handicapper will steer clear of it and focus on other races instead. Betting it is just too much of a shot in the dark, with horses generally not having raced this far and jockeys being unaccustomed to riding in races of […]
A 7-year-old gelding by Mutakddim out of Lisa Danielle, Casino Dan runs Sunday at Turfway in the sixth race, where he is the 7-2 third choice on the morning line in a field of six, racing a mile for a $26,000 purse under nonwinners-of-three allowance conditions.
When My Super Nova defeated Sonora by a head in a six-furlong maiden race at Belmont Park in October, she may have benefitted from having a midpack draw while Sonora had to break from post 11 in the 12-horse field. Fast forward 101 days, and when the two meet again at Aqueduct in Sunday’s $125,000 Franklin Square Stakes for New York-bred 3-year-old fillies. […]
Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence's Leave the Light On, winner of last fall's Remsen Stakes (gr. II) at Aqueduct Racetrack, has been forced off the Kentucky Derby trail after suffering an ankle injury.
When Texas Red makes his first start at age 3 on Sunday in the Grade 2, $200,000 San Vicente Stakes at Santa Anita, it will be exactly three months since his runaway victory in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. The colt people see won’t quite resemble the one they last saw.
ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 30, 2015)–Restrained early and full of run around the far turn, Prospect Park went on to an ultra impressive score in Friday’s $58,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita, as the 3-year-old colt by top stallion Tapit drew off to win by 5 ¼ lengths under Kent Desormeaux while covering a flat […] The post PROSPECT PARK IMPRESSIVE WINNER OF […]

Ten years after the Pennsylvania Derby was going to host for the first time the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner in the form of local runner Smarty Jones, Parx Racing will finally get that honor on Saturday when California Chrome starts the 1 1/8-mile race.
Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner California Chrome galloped over the Parx Racing track Thursday morning as he prepares to face seven other 3-year-olds in the $1 million, 1 1/8-mile Pennsylvania Derby on Saturday
