Impressive “Unsung Hero of the Breeders’ Cup

November 12th, 2018|Tags: , , , , |

  Unsung Hero of the B.C.   By: Nick D’Agostino   Let me take you back for a moment to October 16th 2016. Trainer Doug O’Neill may want to forget this day ever happened but this is when Rockingham Ranch and Trainer Peter Miller snatched Stormy Liberal out of a claiming race for 40k. At the time if you look back Stormy Liberal wasn’t a bad horse on paper, he had 14 starts and out of those 8 were in the money finishes. Doug was entering off a layoff of about 6 months like he had previously done before with Stormy Liberal which produced a win and why not follow the same recipe? Sure enough Stormy Liberal won on October 16th 2016 coasting to a victory going away by 2 ¾ lengths. Rockingham Ranch and Peter Miller claimed a horse they had no idea at that time would pan out to be a turf sprinter for the ages. Maybe it was the racing God’s making things even or was it just a claim of a lifetime? Doug O’Neill is no stranger [...]

BC Bullet Points

November 1st, 2018|Tags: , , |

  Breeders' Cup Bullet Points:   By Jonathan Stettin   By now most of us have at the least finished our preliminary work for the Breeders’ Cup. We know the post positions, fields, probable weather and the wagering menu. Before finalizing decisions, I am going to keep some bullet points in the forefront of my mind.   Here we go:   The draw is important in some races. Pay attention to it and who it has helped and who it has hindered.   Consider rider tendencies when you project how you think the pace will play out. Pace often makes the race. Some riders are more aggressive than others. Anticipating what they are likely to do can be an edge.   You have waited a year to get to this dance and you’re in it. Nothing in the rear view matters this weekend. Go in strong and with conviction on your opinions. #NoFear   The board is less important this weekend than on any given Wednesday at your local track. Everyone is here to win. Nobody is giving anyone room, a [...]

Roaring Lion

November 1st, 2018|

  Roaring Lion: By Kaitlin Free This year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic is a race that could set up for nearly every horse entered on Saturday. A real wild card field where you may be tempted to hit the ALL button, there are a few horses worthy of a closer look. Roaring Lion is one of those horses. Many consider most Europeans trying dirt for the first time an afterthought at best. If you look deep into his pedigree, form, and past performances, Roaring Lion fits into this Classic.   Despite being by top American turf sire Kitten’s Joy, Roaring Lion’s pedigree suggests it can also be productive on the turf. Paired with the right dirt-bred mares, Kitten’s Joy progeny can get over the dirt, especially courses easier on synthetic or turf style horses. Roaring Lion’s dam ran predominantly over turf, winning three times as well as being stakes and G1 placed. Here is the catch - his dam, Vionnet, is by versatile sire Street Sense. Street Sense is even more versatile than Kitten’s Joy with progeny winning all over the world [...]

  It is just about that time once again. The Breeders' Cup is almost here and the Kentucky Derby itself is just about the only other American racing event which generates as much anticipation and build up. This year the Breeders' Cup is at none other than the home of the Run For The Roses, Churchill Downs, and will be run under the famous Twin Spires. While it is too early for the real handicapping to begin, a lot of preliminary work has been done and Gino Buccola, Dan "Keeneland Dan" Cronin and P6K Jonathan Stettin will provide you with some early thoughts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMpdfIi7EBU&t=31s   The Arm, Be With Us, #MEMBERSHIP  Subscribe to our columns at PastTheWire.com Subscribe to our YouTube channel Past the Wire Like us on FaceBook @pastthewire Follow on Twitter @pastthewire Follow on Twitter @kaitlinefree Follow on Twitter @Nicky_DAgs Follow on Twitter @JohnDaSilva Follow on Twitter @jonathanstettin Follow on Twitter @ItsMeGinoB Follow on Twitter @SetteBetterDays     For the BEST TRIP NOTES in the game use TRACKING TRIPS at Past the Wire. You can't afford not to be a #member.  There is no service like [...]

Stallion Dynasties: Nureyev

October 23rd, 2018|Tags: |

    Stallion Dynasties: Nureyev By Kaitlin Free Every son of Northern Dancer has a certain quality that is unique to them. Nijinsky was a large, striking colt that was extremely gifted on the track, while Lyphard was a spitting image of Northern Dancer and seemed as if he would live forever. In every family, there always is someone who is dealt a tougher hand than the rest. Our next entry in the Northern Dancer dynasty was a horse that often fell down on his luck, but will always be fondly remembered for his accomplishments as a stallion and as a racehorse. Bred by the legendary Claiborne Farm, a bay colt with a white blaze and a single white sock was given life on May 2, 1977. He was a beautiful foal that came from a rich lineage. Sired by Northern Dancer out of the Forli mare Special, he had highly sought after blood running through his veins. He descended from a female family that produced the champions Thatch, Moccasin, Gamely, and Ridan. The dam Special was already well known in [...]

Breeders’ Cup Classic “Getting In”

October 23rd, 2018|

  Getting In The Breeders' Cup Classic By John DaSilva In a few days, the world will focus their attention to Louisville, Kentucky as the Breeders’ Cup comes to town.  Now in it’s 35th year, the Breeders' Cup will be held on November 2nd and 3rd. The featured race of the Breeders' Cup is the Classic, run at a mile and a quarter for a purse of $6,000,000. This year, it is the opinion of many that the Classic is a wide open affair, with no horse that is good enough to scare off others. Chances are the race will oversubscribe. In that case, there is a system in place to fill out the 14 spots in the Classic. The system ranks horses in order of preference based upon (i) wins in Breeders' Cup Challenge Races, (ii) a point system, and (iii) the judgment of a panel of racing experts. The first two criteria will assign a maximum of 7 horses for fields limited to 14 starters. The field selection system will be implemented as necessary following the taking of pre-entries on October [...]
