- Giving My Ten Cents: The Last StandThe other main reason I soured on the game was an ever-building frustration of anger towards multiple groups in the sport. From the “Super-trainers” that dominate the major circuits (through legal or questionable means), the increasingly inconsistent decisions of the stewards, the managerial decisions that serve to only help themselves
- What Wins the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and Juvenile Fillies?We dug through charts and winner's lifetime past performances to see what patterns, if any, emerge with regards to winners of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile and Juvenile Fillies. Find out what we discovered!
- Analyzing how favorites have fared in the Breeders’ Cup – Brisnetavoritism belongs to the horse leaving the starting gate at the lowest odds and it’s no surprise favorites in the Breeders’ Cup win at a lower rate than the national average (approximately 35%) given the abundance of large and competitive fields in the 14-race championship event.
- Second Look HorsesLoneSpeed contributor Steve Decaspers is back with more valuable Breeders’ Cup insight… It is both valuable and maddening that you have two weeks to handicap the Breeders’ Cup races. In that sense, there is no other race card like it – and your opinions of horses can go through a
- Merry Breeders’ CupIt’s here. Now its time for you to let it rip at the windows (or on your laptop or phone or whatever). The time for stressing out of whether to single Newspaperofrecord or whom to box with Catalina Cruiser is over. You’ve done the research… …unless you haven’t!!!! And if

- Clumsy PR campaign tries to paint a positive pictureAll too often with these blog posts I have one idea in mind – occasionally positive – then something happens which leads me down a totally different path. Once again, that happened this week thanks to an interestingly timed press release from the NZRB wanting to paint a pretty picture
- Kellie Reilly: 2018 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf international scouting reportThe Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) has gone to Europe seven times in its 11-year history, and the renewal on “Future Stars Friday” may well add to the tally. Arguably the premier domestic hope, Fog of War, is sidelined, while the international team offers strength in depth.
- Kellie Reilly: 2018 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf international scouting reportUnlike the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1), where Europeans tend to prosper, the Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) has been a haven for the home team.
