Extremely talented individual with a ground covering stride that looks like he'll get better with age. If he handles the transition from two to three he's going to be one tough costumer this winter. His third in the Juvenile is not discouraging he simply did not have enough time to make up ground as he was really far back in the Juvenile. Should also be noted for mile and a sixteenth races at Keeneland they have to use the short stretch at Keeneland.

He hasn't put in a bad race yet. He's super talented and bred to run all day. He's a half to Point of Entry who was a superb long distance turf horse a couple years ago. He is only going to get better with age, and this is one to keep an eye on especially if he makes it to Belmont.

Very impressed with everything this colt has done so far. He's bred to run all day and will improve with age. He's a half brother to Breeders Cup Juvenile winner New Years Day, and his mother was a multiple graded stakes winner. He is bred to be special, and special he has certainly become.

His Delta Jackpot win was better than looked he showed he has the ability to win from anywhere on the racetrack which makes him very dangerous. He's a very workman like horse and just grinds out wins. With his breeding he's going to get better as he gets older which is a scary thought because he is already a really nice racehorse.

This colt it out of a mare that always seems to throw runners the list of talents shes produced is pretty remarkable. It includes Keyed Entry, Justin Phillip, and Algorithms it's know surprise that this colt can run. Only worry is if he can stay healthy, and if he wants to run the Derby distance. Regardless this is a very nice colt that's going to improve next out.

This is one colt who is going to get better as the distances get longer. He showed that with an emphatic win in the Iroquois in his first try at two turns. With Colonel John on top, and Malibu Moon on bottom he's going to relish a mile a quarter. Can't wait to see whats in store for this very talented colt.

Ode to the Little Horse that could.

He was a small little gelding not much to him he was pitch black and had the heart of a lion. He was the ultimate racehorse, and his name was Shared Belief. It broke my heart into a million pieces when I found out about his passing due to colic. I have decided to go back and look at all the great moments Shared Belief has provided the sport.


I first heard of Shared Belief when he was a two year old I watched his debut win on the 19th of Oct. 2013 on TVG and all I could say was wow, and where would this brilliant animal be making his first stakes start. I didn't have to wait to long as the plucky little black gelding came back on the 10th of Nov. 2013 in the Hollywood Prevue Stakes where he absolutely demolished his competition from there the sky was the limit.  


2013 Hollywood Prevue Stakes 

The next step for Shared Belief was the grade one Cashcall Futurity his first start in grade one company. In this race he would beat Del Mar Futurity winner Tamarando,  Front Runner Stakes wi…

Absolutely love his Holy Bull win. He showed a fantastic ability to relax on the inside of runners and finish with an absolute flourish. Kiaran has even said this colt is ahead of Frosted and Cairo Prince at this stage in the game those are some pretty talented horses. He easily crushed Greenpointcrusader who I thought would give him more of a challenge then he did. The way Mohaymen re-broke at the top of the stretch gave me goosebumps this is one very special racehorse. Hopefully he stays sound and we will see just how incredibly special this colt is.
