We discuss some of the Wednesday racing from Keeneland and with Mountaineer opening next week we go back and listen to an interview with Mountaineer analyst Mark Patterson from July of 2018.
It's Monday and we're looking back at the weekend of racing including opening day cards at Woodbine and Emerald Downs, the Elkhorn at Keeneland, the Charles Town Classic, and more!
We're looking ahead to the weekend of racing action including the Charles Town Classic as well as racing from Keeneland. The BARN Jury come in to discuss the sporting events that still give them chills when they see them.
Zulu Alpha winning the Sycamore Stakes (G3) - Keeneland Photo Is it possible trainer Mike Maker could sweep the trifecta in Saturday’s $250,000 Dixiana Elkhorn Stakes (G2) going 1 1/2 miles at Keeneland? I don’t think it’s a far-fetched notion. Certainly a victory would come as no surprise. Maker’s former claimer #10 Zulu Alpha seems to have forgotten how to lose, with four wins from his last five starts, including graded stakes triumphs in the Sycamore Stakes (G3), [...]
Owendale winning the Lexington Stakes (gr. III) - Keeneland Photo What a difference two months can make. After failing to challenge when finishing eighth in the Feb. 16 Risen Star Stakes (G2) at Fair Grounds, Owendale looked like a completely different horse in the April 13 Lexington Stakes (G3) at Keeneland, producing a sweeping rally from off the pace to triumph in eye-catching fashion. A wide but clean trip may have been the key factor for Owendale. Under a [...]
Looking back at a busy weekend including the Lexington Stakes day card at Keeneland, the Arkansas Derby program at Oaklawn Park, and much more!
It's Friday and we're looking ahead to the weekend action from Keeneland and Oaklawn. The BARN Jury come in to discuss who's going to win the Masters and what Derby prep they've been most impressed with.
Rushing Fall winning the Jessamine Stakes (gr. III) at Keeneland. Photo: Keeneland/Coady Photography The second Saturday of the 2019 Keeneland spring meet features another action-packed afternoon of high-class racing, including the Jenny Wiley Stakes (G1) and the Lexington Stakes (G3). Those much-anticipated events comprise the last two legs of an all-stakes Pick 4 that has the potential to yield a nice payoff, but only if you can identify the winners of the Ben Ali Stakes (G3) and the [...]
Anothertwistafate winning the El Camino Real Derby - © Vassar Photography/Shane Micheli When ten horses line up to contest Saturday’s $200,000 Lexington Stakes (G3) at Keeneland, the one sure bet is that I’ll be all-in with my support of #4 Anothertwistafate. The 1 1/16-mile race serves as a final, desperate qualifier for the 2019 Kentucky Derby (G1), and offers 20 qualifications points to the winner. Those points alone are unlikely to yield a spot in the starting gate, but [...]
We finish recapping Santa Anita's weekend of racing and welcome in Brian Hernandez Jr. to talk about his weekend in the saddle at Keeneland, his Derby and Oaks hopefuls, and more!
