Sunday Silence holding off archrival Easy Goer. Arcangues scoring at an insane 133-1. Cigar capping a perfect season. Tiznow taking back-to-back photo finishes over European superstars.

While the racing world awaits the long-overdue decision from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC) whether Bafferts record-setting seventh Derby winner Medina Spirit will be disqualified for a post-race positive of a prohibited race day medication, theres the more immediate question: Will he or wont he be permitted to run horses in the Breeders Cup? An answer will come soon, likely before pre-entries

September 29, 2021 (16:45) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News
By Ed McNamara American Pharoah was the long-awaited unicorn who in 2015 ended a Triple Crown drought that began in 1979. In 2018, Santa Anita renamed the FrontRunner Stakes, which Pharoah won as a 2-year-old, in his honor. He’s one of trainer Bob Baffert’s nine winners of a race that until 2012 was known as the Norfolk, and on Friday Baffert will have three chances to get No. 10. He’ll send out two potential stars, debut winners Rockefeller and Corniche, who dominated by 4 1/4 lengths at 5 1/2 furlongs with a 98 Beyer Speed Figure, the highest by a

Spa Showcase For 2-Year-Olds in Hopeful, Spinaway
September 02, 2021 (23:45) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News
By Ed McNamara Saratoga is always about finding the stars of the future, and Wit could be one. He’s 2-for-2 by a total of 14 lengths and will be heavily favored in Monday’s 7-furlong Hopeful Stakes (G1). Unlike most dominant 2-year-olds, Wit doesn’t blast out of the gate and blow open races early. Instead, he breaks slowly, races in midpack and does his best running from the far turn to the wire. He’s not a great horse breaking out of there, rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. said after an eight-length runaway July 17 in Saratoga’s Grade 3 Sanford Stakes. I gave
