‘If He’s Ready, He’ll Run’: Casa Creed To Point For Fourstardave Repeat

LRE Racing and JEH Racing Stable’s 7-year-old multiple Grade 1 winner Casa Creed proved he is still at the top of his game with a one-length score over Grade 1 winner Annapolis in Saturday’s Kelso (G3) at Saratoga Race Course. Trained by Hall of Famer Bill Mott, the Jimmy Creed bay got his third graded victory traveling one-mile over the Spa’s inner turf, adding to scores in the 2019 National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame (G2) and last year’s Fourstardave Handicap (G1). It’s fitting that the evergreen Casa Creed will now point to a title defense in the $500,000 Fourstardave Handicap […]

Matt Winn will be extended to 1 1/8 miles next Sunday at Ellis

Faced with a dilemma on next Sunday’s running of the Grade 3, $400,000 Matt Winn Stakes, Ben Huffman did not hesitate Saturday about whether the race would be shortened or lengthened to fit Ellis Park. “It’s going to be a mile-and-an-eighth,” said Huffman, the vice president of racing for Churchill Downs Inc. “If you look at the PPs, those are two-turn horses.” Fed regulators push Churchill Downs to move races to Ellis The Matt Winn, a race for 3-year-olds, has been run the last 12 years at 1 1/16 miles at Churchill Downs, where racing will be suspended after this weekend.

Kentucky Derby winner Mage will run at the Preakness on May 20

Kentucky Derby winner Mage will run in the 148th Preakness following an encouraging workout at Churchill Downs, his co-owner stated. Mage galloped about 1½ miles at a brisk pace with exercise rider J.J. Delgado aboard on a cloudy but mild Friday morning at the track. Co-owner and bloodstock agent Ramiro Restrepo stated the chestnut colt was “thriving” with good energy levels after his latest training session since winning the 149th Derby, paving the way for the horse to enter the Triple Crown’s second jewel at Pimlico in Baltimore. “He’s had a magnificent week of training,” Restrepo said with co-owner Chase […]

Mage wins Kentucky Derby overshadowed by 7 horse deaths at Churchill Downs

After seven deaths raised questions about the future of horse racing, Mage earned a surprising Kentucky Derby triumph on Saturday, capping a nerve-rattling day that included two more fatalities ahead of the 149th edition of the world’s most famous race. Mage, a 15-1 shot, had only one victory in his career, giving little indication that he could triumph versus 17 rivals in a race that is not kind to the inexperienced. Still, he made a gutsy stretch run, overtaking Two Phil’s to his inside and winning by a length. Mage, who didn’t race as a two-year-old, ran 1 1/4 miles […]

Paris Secret Goes Last To First To Win Providencia

Paris Secret, making her second start stateside after starting her career in Ireland, swept past the spent early leaders and held off fellow closer Pleasant Wave  to acquire the April 29 Providencia Stakes (G3T) by three-quarters of a length at Santa Anita Park. Heavily favored Ancient Peace , purchased for $650,000 at Keeneland’s January Horses of All Ages Sale, could not resist going with pacesetter Broadway Girls , who blitzed through fractions of :23.22 and :46.15, which proved a difficult clip to sustain at the Providencia’s 1 1/8-mile distance. After six furlongs in 1:10 the early leaders came to the top of the stretch well clear of […]

Derby prospects: Practical Move drills for Santa Anita Derby

Practical Move worked at Santa Anita Sunday in preparation for Saturday’s Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby. Trained by Tim Yakteen, the son of Practical Joke has gained his last two starts, the San Felipe (G2) and the Los Alamitos Futurity (G2) in December. Ranked No. 6 in the Kentucky Derby standings with 60 points, he likely has earned his way to the Churchill Downs starting gate on May 6. But he could erase all doubt with a good showing Saturday, as the Santa Anita Derby awards 100-40-30-20-10 points to the top five finishers. Here are details of published works this weekend […]
