    Pennsylvania Derby in Play for Classic Empire

    With the Aug. 26 Travers Stakes (G1) looming and his presence on the work tab still unaccounted for since arriving at Saratoga Race Course, a start in the Sept. 23 Pennsylvania Derby (G1) is a "Plan B" that could become a reality for Classic Empire.

  • Scat Daddy

    Daddy's More Than Home

    For all the jaw dropping that surrounded the success of Scat Daddy's offspring at the Royal Ascot meet came a bit of head scratching about how this could have been predicted.

  • Blue Grass, Wood Memorial Downgraded

    In a dramatic reshaping of graded status of 2017 Triple Crown prep races, the American Graded Stakes Committee of the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders' Association has downgraded the Toyota Blue Grass and the Wood Memorial from grade I to grade II.

  • F-T Saratoga Fall Sale Nearly Even With 2015

    Led by a $150,000 Street Cry mare, Fasig-Tipton kicked off the mixed auction season Oct. 17 with figures on nearly even terms with the 2015 edition of the Saratoga fall sale at the Humphrey S. Finney Sales Pavilion in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

  • Nyquist

    Nyquist Shooting for Breeders' Cup Classic

    Despite reservations expressed by owner J. Paul Reddam after what he called "the worst performance of (Nyquist's) life" in the Pennsylvania Derby (gr. II), the Uncle Mo colt will target the Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I).

  • Connect holds off Gun Runner to win the Pennsylvania Derby

    Connect Bounces Back in Pennsylvania Derby

    After a poor performance in his first graded stakes try in the Travers Stakes (gr. I), late-developing 3-year-old Connect bounced back with a narrow win over Gun Runner in the $1.25 million Pennsylvania Derby (gr. II) Sept. 24 at Parx Racing.

  • Nyquist gets familiar with Parx Racing backstretch Sept. 21.

    Nyquist, Exaggerator Set for Seventh Meeting

    After six previous meetings that include one-two finishes in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) and the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), Nyquist and Exaggerator go toe to toe for Round 7 in the Pennsylvania Derby (gr. II).

  • Nyquist

    Running Style Change Planned for Nyquist

    In most of Nyquist’s 10 starts, the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner has led or raced closed to the leaders early, but trainer Doug O’Neill doesn’t believe last year’s champion juvenile male needs to be close early.

  • Unbeaten Songbird arrives Sept. 19 at Parx Racing for Sept. 24 Cotillion (gr. I)

  • Nyquist

    Nyquist Begins Work for Pennsylvania Derby

    After noticing Reddam Racing's Nyquist was getting a little skinny at Del Mar, trainer Doug O'Neill decided to send the Uncle Mo colt north on Interstate 5 to train at the much more relaxed San Luis Rey Training Center.
