2013 Stallions to Watch in 2014 and Beyond


Four non-superstar stallions to keep an eye on.

Pedigree Profile: Groupie Doll


All of your dollars now belong to Mandy Pope.

BC 2013: Wrap Up Thoughts


I'm sure everyone's been thinking, "Where are Tribe's comments?" For that one person, you're welcome!

Pedigree Profile: Declaration of War

Can the Queen Anne winner get the pace he needs and the trip he wants? Will he even like the dirt?

Keeneland Yearling Sale a Huge Success

Note: Headline may be understating the actual results

Thursday Thoughts

Maybe Belmont’s Pick 6 will carry over again today. Then I’ll have to play it, if only to have a glimmer of hope, or at least hold onto that glimmer until the first race finishes.

Random Thoughts for a Monday

Been crazy busy over the past two weeks, so sorry for the light involvement. But here’s like a couple thousand word diatribe to make up for it!

Keeneland September Yearling Sale Preview

Fall is fast approaching, as is the Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

St. Nick's Abbey Doing Well


A quick update on his current condition. Sounds like everything is moving in the right direction.

Saratoga: Racing at its best

If you're a horse racing fan, nothing beats a weekend at Saratoga

Random Thursday Thoughts

It's Thursday. I have thoughts.

The Jockey - NYT's In Depth Look at Russell Baze


Just when I'm 100% set that the New York Times' racing coverage is fully aimed to bring down the sport, they go and do something spectacular like this.

Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select Yearling Sale

All numbers are up after Session 1.

Pedigree Profile: Cross Traffic

An impressive front-running winner of the G1-Whitney, Cross Traffic is a late bloomer who looks to run away from the best handicap horses as summer turns to fall.

Stallion Profile: Take Charge Indy

One of the last great sons of A.P. Indy retires due to injury.

Stallion Unbridled's Song Euthanized


After a rapid decline in his heath, Rood and Riddle found a invasive and aggressive tumor in his sinus cavities.

A View from the Sales Ring: Fasig Tipton July Sale

There are several cornerstone events on the yearly sales calendar, none bigger than the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. But the bell-weather of the yearling sales is always the Fasig Tipton July...

KY Investigating Shock Wave Therapy


I've been told by a couple of vets that there is very little value to this treatment other than as an analgesic. So interesting that Kentucky is going to look into the use of Shock Wave especially considering the quote, "You could do it in Wendy's parking lot.".

Weekend Ramblings: Wise Dan is Ridiculous Edition


I mean seriously? The best way to win on the turf at Churchill is apparently to run through the bushes.

Trading Leather (Teofilo) wins the Irish Derby


After stalking a hot pace, Trading Leather seized control of the Irish Derby and won by nearly 2 lengths.

Pedigree Profile: Byrama (GB)


A through and through European pedigree, Byrama (GB) has developed from a nice stakes horse as a juvenile and a 3 year old into a really top end Grade 1 filly as a 4 year old. But why did it take...

Lane's End Weekender Pedigree: Close Hatches


When I sat down this morning to peruse the racing publications of the world, I was dismayed to see the PR's Weekender Profile of the First Defense filly and G1-Mother Goose winner Close Hatches. Not because it isn't brilliantly written, nay, Frank Mitchell always does a fantastic job, but because I wanted to do my own. Oh well. Way to burst my bubble, Ray Paulick.

An American Raider at Ascot


No Nay Never, by Scat Daddy out of an Elusive Quality mare, made a devestating move with one panel left to win the G2-Norfolk for Wesley Ward and the Coolmore-ish connections. Looks like he flies back to the states here shortly and then targets the G1- Prix Morny at Deauville, France in August.

Pedigree Profile: Palace Malice

A close second in the G1-Blue Grass plus an insane opening half-mile in the Derby apparently equals a win in the G1-Belmont for Palace Malice.

Belmont: A View From The Grandstands

Another Triple Crown race means another installment of the ever-popular AVTG Series!!

It's Belmont Week!


Obligatory post of the greatest Belmont performance ever.

Sahara Sky Wins Met Mile


Coming from the clouds, Sahara Sky noses out Cross Traffic for the Met Mile win.
