    Westwood Looks to Move Forward in Commonwealth

    In a race where multiple graded stakes-winning sprinter Limousine Liberal is slated as the 6-5 morning-line favorite, the $250,000 Commonwealth Stakes (G3) at Keeneland April 7 could prove to be a step forward for Godolphin's Westwood.

    Once again, this is about longshots and value. I don’t have enough money to bet favorites and pick 6’s and superfectas, so I’ve got to take a few stabs.

  • Imperial Hint is on the muscle as he gallops ahead of the Breeders' Cup at Del Mar

    Owner Raymond Mamone likes to race a horse or two with trainer Luis Carvajal Jr., and if the 2-year-old filly he planned to race in late 2015 had been ready, Carvajal might not be at the Breeders' Cup with Florida-bred Imperial Hint.
