Casino Drive to Return for BC Classic

Casino Drive to Return for BC Classic

Casino Drive's quest to become the third straight Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winner produced by his dam Better Than Honour failed when the colt suffered a stone bruise two days before the race. But this isn't the last we'll see of the son of Mineshaft, who will now point for the Breeders' Cup Classic(gr. I), with a prep beforehand.

On Schedule With Casino Drive

On Schedule With Casino Drive

Casino Drive, the son of Mineshaft who is expected to provide some of the stiffest competition to Big Brown in the June 7 Belmont Stakes (gr. I), follows a daily routine that raises eyebrows on the backstretch of Belmont Park but is consistent with how he is trained in Japan.

Casino Drive Spectacular in Peter Pan

Casino Drive Spectacular in Peter Pan

On May 10 at Belmont Park, North America got its first look at the colt who could have the best chance at spoiling Big Brown's entry into racing immortality, as Japanese invader Casino Drive blew away eight challengers to win the $200,000 Peter Pan Stakes (gr. II) in sensational fashion.

Tomcito Hopes For Better in Peter Pan

Tomcito Hopes For Better in Peter Pan

Jet Set Racing's Tomcito, one of four horses that did not make the cut in last week's Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), will be looking to make a splash in the June 7 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) instead. To do that, the son of Street Cry will take the traditional route, entering in the $200,000 Peter Pan Stakes (gr. II) May 10, a 1 1/8-mile contest that serves as the local prep for third leg of the Triple Crown.

Japan-Based Horses Settle in at Belmont

After a 12-hour trans-Pacific journey, including a one-hour lay-over in Anchorage, Alaska, and a brief stint at Aqueduct to clear quarantine, three Japan-based horses -- Casino Driver, Champagne Squall, and Spark Candle -- have begun to settle in at Barn 17 at Belmont Park.
