  • Keen Ice Right Where He Wants to Be

    Keen Ice may have lost the battle, as in the $750,000 purse of the Jockey Club Gold Cup, but don't be surprised when the war is over on the evening of November 4 he is the last one standing.

    Keen Ice Stands Out in Jockey Club Gold Cup

  • Gun Runner draws off to win the Woodward Stakes

    Gun Runner Much the Best in Woodward

    Gun Runner continued his wash, rinse, repeat pattern of excellence Sept. 2 when the chestnut stunner rolled past pacesetter Neolithic on the far turn and drew off to capture the Woodward Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets (G1) by open lengths.

  • West Coast rolls home to win the Travers Stakes

    West Coast is Best in Travers Stakes

    One year after champion Arrogate shipped in from California and turned the division on its ear with his win in the Travers Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets (G1), West Coast emulated his stablemate when he registered a victory in the 1 1/4-mile test.

  • Tapwrit will make his first start since he won the Belmont Stakes by two lengths

    Rested Tapwrit Seeks To Land Travers Knockout

  • Tapwrit is the morning-line favorite for the Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course

    Contentious Travers Stakes on Tap

  • Always Dreaming Confirmed for Travers

    Trainer Todd Pletcher saw three of his possible starters in the Travers Stakes (G1) breeze early the morning of Aug. 18, with Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming going four furlongs in company with Outplay, and Tapwrit also working a half-mile.

  • Keen Ice goes to his nose at the start of the Whitney as the field heads out of the gate Aug. 5

    Woodward 'Strong Possibility' for Gun Runner

    Gun Runner was in fine fettle Aug. 6, following his 5 1/4-length domination in the $1.2 million Whitney Stakes (G1)—a performance made all the more memorable by a wayward horseshoe that made its way into the chestnut colt's tail.

  • Rally Cry wins the 2017 Alydar Stakes

    Rally Cry Gives Notice in Alydar

    While the bad fortune for the once-promising Mohaymen continued in the Alydar Stakes at Saratoga Race Course Aug. 6, the Todd Pletcher-trained Rally Cry alerted the older handicap division that he could be a new force with a 8 3/4-length win.

  • Gun Runner takes the Whitney with style

    Gun Runner Cruises in Whitney

    Cruising for home on his lonesome under a confident ride from Florent Geroux, the 3-5 Steve Asmussen-trained favorite continued to draw away en route to a 5 1/4-length win over Keen Ice.

  • Gun Runner leads by seven lengths at the wire in the Stephen Foster Handicap

    All Eyes on Gun Runner in Whitney Stakes

    With rain in the forecast and a rabbit entered to try and disrupt his rhythm, Gun Runner will no doubt elevate himself should the 4-5 morning-line favorite run to form in the Aug. 5 Whitney Stakes (G1) over 1 1/8 miles.

  • What's Going On Here: Upset Minded

    So what do we make of the beginning of the second half of the 2017 race season, where in the space of one week we’ve seen the defeats of Arrogate, Always Dreaming, Cloud Computing, Irish War Cry, and Timeline with nary a battle offered?
