  • Perfect Secrets Wins NY Breeders Futurity at 23/1

    After finishing fourth in the Aspirant Stakes, missing by three lengths, Perfect Secrets was gelded later in the day.

  • Buckingham Palace Rules Over The Sands Point

    There were not any real surprises in the Sands Point, as the two horses that figured to lead the way, Buckingham Palace and Juicy stepped up and did exactly that. Buckingham Palace would come into the race with five wins in nine starts, but was still looking for the graded victory that she could put on her resume.

  • FL Is On Fire for The NY Breeders Futurity

    We get two rarities on Monday, the first of which being a big race on a Monday that is not part of a three day weekend, and the second being a chance to come to and cover a race from Western New York.

  • Wbf No Regrets Passes Last Lady Late to Win Spinster

    When Wbf No Regrets is on, she can be as good as anyone in this division. The problem is, she just does not show that enough. She won the Apple Blossom and was good in the Phipps, but her next two starts saw her be a non-factor. That history made her one that you could not ignore here in the Spinster, and she would be made one of our picks, hoping that she would step up and run one of her better races.

  • Iron Nation Finally Back in Winners Circle After Hirsch Turf Classic

    Last year according to the record books, there was not another horse in the game that had a better season than Iron Nation. He won the prestigious Horse of the Year distinction in a three year old season that he capped off by winning the BC Mile. Surely, he seemed destined to do great things this year as well but he had been winless in 2021 so far.

  • Shifu Tan Makes Successful Debut for Fractious in Phoenix

  • Hirsch Turf Classic Will Be Action Packed

    Some of the top turf horses in the virtual racing world will be going to post on Saturday for the 19th running of the Grade 1 Hirsch Turf Classic.
