Ode To The Place That Made Me

Some people say that your home should tell the story of who you are and be a collection of what you love and hold most dear, well to me my home has always been at Canterbury Park. I yearned for those summers every single day of my young life I literally had a countdown started on my phone from the moment the meet closed for the winter. It was the one thing that kept me going through those long tough winters in school, It helped me discover so many things about myself and taught me so many life lessons. It was the place that really shaped who I became.


My first experience at Canterbury Park actually happened before I could walk or even form memories, My Mom and Dad knew someone who worked at Canterbury and through that connection, we were able to get a photo in the winners circle. I was just a young child in the photo and I didn't even look at the camera, but it was just the beginning of my long future with Canterbury Park. Fittingly the horse that won the race we got the photo for …

Triple Crown Reactions

I got into horse racing way back in 2004 thanks to a plucky little chestnut horse named Smarty Jones who swept through the Kentucky Derby and Preakness with devastating ease I thought for sure even with my limited horse racing knowledge at that time that he would be racings 12th Triple Crown winner. My hopes were dashed as another plucky little colt named Birdstone swept on by him and dashed all my hopes in that final heartbreaking furlong.  The Triple Crown is part of what fueled my love for this sport at such a young age, and after Smarty Jones I spent most of my life thinking I would never have the privilege to witness a Triple Crown winner. So when American Pharoah came along I relished every hoofbeat, every race-call, and every heart stopping moment along the trail. I probably have watched his Belmont over a hundred times, and I could probably recite it word for word by now. I remember exactly where I was when he crossed that wire first I was hot walking a horse named Castlederg …

Belmont Super Saturday Stakes Selections

Race 2 The Easy Goer Stakes 
Win: #3 Rugbyman
Place: #7 Dark Vader
Show: #2 Mask
Complete Super: #5 Prince Lucky 

Analysis: I'm thinking this is going to be a break out race for the royally bred Rugbyman I was very impressed with his last out and think he'll handle the jump to stakes company with flying colors.








Race 3 Ogden Phipps Stakes 

Win: #4 Pacific Wind
Place: #6 Abel Tasman
Show: #3 Highway Star
Complete Super: #1 Unbridled Mo

Analysis: Pacific Wind like a typical Curlin has gotten worlds better with age and I think she's still going to make leaps forward she's that good. Honest opinion she is easily the best Older Female on the East Coast.











Race 4 Acorn Stakes 



Win: #3 Monomoy Girl
Place: #7 Talk Veuve To Me
Show: #5 Caledonia Road
Complete Super: #1 Moonshine Memories

Analysis: Monomoy Girl is simply to good to be beaten especially at a flat mile. Caledonia Road is going to have better luck running in some longer distance races down the line. Talk Veuve To Me loo…
