The BreedersCup announced today that it’s bringing back the Distaff, news that Alicia Wincze called “the most popular name restoration since Prince.” It may seem minor, but it’s a feel-good bit of change, a return to a classic word with resonance in the game and a rich history, evoking greats such as Personal Ensign […]

He Was the Best

And now he’s in the Hall of Fame. There was some grumbling on Twitter about 2006 BreedersCup Classic winner and Horse of the Year Invasor, with his career record of 11 wins from 12 starts, being among this year’s inductees into the Racing Hall of Fame — “No offense to Invasor, who was very [...]

The Contenders

A few of the 2012 BreedersCup contenders I’ve spotted around Santa Anita … Animal Kingdom (Mile) Groupie Doll (Filly and Mare Sprint) Sky Lantern (Juvenile Fillies Turf) Jaycito (Marathon) Game on Dude (Classic) Richard’s Kid (Classic) Ron the Greek (Classic) Dullahan (Turf) Point of Entry (Turf) Trinniberg (Sprint)

Classic Contrarian

Caton Bredar on why Royal Delta should run on BreedersCup Friday: More important than semantics or awards, though, is the idea that the Ladies Classic — particularly this year — is a great race in its own right. Should the field remain intact, it will feature three previous BC winners — Royal Delta joining [...]

The Day at The Races: Mar. 4

Kiaran McLaughlin’s plan to return It’s Tricky to the races was a success.

Blind Luck to Lady’s Secret

Farewell to the rivalry for this year: While Blind Luck’s rival Havre de Grace will likely use the Beldame as a prep for the BreedersCup Classic (gr. I) against males, Hollendorfer said there is no way his filly will run in that race. “I’m not running her in the Classic,” he said. “I don’t [...]

He Was the Best

I’m heading up to Saratoga for the Whitney Handicap, which is a BreedersCup Classic Challenge race and a stakes I best remember for 2006, the year Invasor won by digging in and outlasting Sun King by a nose. There is no Invasor in this year’s field, but the winner will get a guaranteed spot [...]
