Ky Derby winner may not be coming out of the west; Pletcher appears to have best colt in Always Dreaming

Warren Eves | April 9, 2017

By Warren Eves It was great to see class act John Shirreffs win the Santa Anita Derby with Gormley. Looking at the Ky Derby picture for the first time this year–it’s safe to say this year’s winner probably won’t be Gormley. And…….you probably won’t find the winner of that [...]

Warren Eves | December 1, 2012

Warren Eves | June 3, 2012

By Warren Eves Frank Stronach has to be wealthy beyond our wildest dreams. His thoroughbreds are racing on many venues at a great expense.  A talented three-year-old River Rush set a track record at Woodbine Sunday breaking his maiden.  And that’s the good news.  One thing is for sure, [...]

Don’t Look Now But Discreet Dancer Has Substance; Pletcher Has Major Player Early On For Derby 2012

Warren Eves | January 8, 2012

By Warren Eves Early on Todd Pletcher has yet another major player for Derby 2012. Thoroughbred horse racing’s best known trainer has done the least with the most when it comes to the first Saturday in May.  He saddled a newly turned three-year-old in Florida Saturday that has it all. [...]

Warren Eves | December 31, 2011

Warren H. Eves | January 13, 2011

By Warren Eves           Where will Gold for Cash show up next time out in Florida?           He’s a three-year-old colt with a quarter horse name.  He’s shown improvement in each of his last three starts.  That’s a handicapping angle more than often produces a winning run.           Wednesday(January [...]

Mark Geiger | December 18, 2010

Looks like Twin Spires and TAM have resolved their issue and their signal is available there.  Still, what a silly little joke but I’m warming up and got no time to mess around with a bunch of dummies spitting into the wind. Steady rain in LaLa land this am – ditto Bay [...]

Mark Geiger | December 9, 2010

At this time of year, with the migration south in full swing, there is danger at your door.  It is real and palpable because it is very easy to be lured into believing the insignificant or normal is special.  This struck me right between the eyes about 4:30 this morning when I realized I had [...]

Price Horse Central – 12/8/10 – Comments and Suggestions

Mark Geiger | December 8, 2010
