There has not been an American Triple Crown winner for 33 years, and now, more than ever, the sport badly needs that to happen at Belmont. “I’ll Have Another” will be the first Triple Crown winner in 34 years; that is if he can win The Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 9. The three-year-old is […]

Bob Sinclair & Raffaela Carra – Far L Amore (Radio Edit) Allow me to take you on a race-day journey – a great love story of horse and trainer that I was lucky enough to be a part of for the race at Fort Erie Race Track on Saturday, May 12th, 2012. The gorgeous, big, strong Roman-nosed […]

“I’ll Have Another” (I’m pretty sure that’s a cookie slogan), won the Kentucky Derby in impressive fashion! It seems like the winner of the Derby always has an amazing story behind them and this year is no different. Mario Gutierrez from Hasting Race Course in Vancouver was aboard the colt for his first ever Grade […]

This is the King of Sports, and the Sport of Kings. The Kentucky Derby, one of the world’s greatest sport spectacles has finally arrived.  Add to that the opening of racing season at tracks around the country, including Fort Erie Race Track.  Does it get any better for horse racing fans? I heard there were other […]

The day is getting closer.  The 115th thoroughbred racing season at Fort Erie Race Track is only a couple of weekends away. Opening day at the picturesque track is Sunday, May 6 and the racetrack management and staff are excited for the great year ahead. With some new promotions, events, local musical talent at the […]

The first Saturday in May is quickly arriving.  It won’t be long before we see the garland of roses around the 2012 winner of the Kentucky Derby! It seems as though there are a lot of favorites to win this year, but there is surely no heavy favourite. Arguments can be made for several horses, […]

With opening weekend of Woodbine racetrack in the past now, owners, trainers and jockeys can start collecting some money instead of handing it out to employees. It’s sometimes a very long winter for thoroughbred horse people here in Ontario as there is no hometown racing. Many Canadians do travel south for the winter in order […]

Horse racing is back in Ontario! Woodbine Racetrack’s opening day of live racing is Friday April 6, with a post time  of 1 PM. With 167 race days up coming in 2012, the hype of another year is sure to be a success. A few big race dates to mark on the calendar besides opening day are; […]

Dubai – home of modern day miracles! An underwater hotel, the world’s tallest building, indoor snow oasis, (yes skiing in the desert) and many architectural phenomenons that are waiting to blow your mind.  It seems only right that this city holds the richest day in horse racing. On Saturday, March 31st, The Dubai World Cup […]

Racetracks in Ontario, and across North America, are facing tough challenges as the government is pulling the ripcord on the long time arrangement known as the Race Track & Slots programme. Slots joined in with race tracks years ago when the race tracks were having difficult times; money was an issue and the slots were the […]

The sports industry is not immune to the poor economy throughout North America, as you shall see, but has the government gone too far?  Do they really understand how their decisions impact more than just athletes? The Slots at Fort Erie, Ontario, employ over 200 people who are immediately affected by the government’s decision to close its […]

There’s something to say about anything pretty; there’s pretty flowers, girls, pictures, landscaping, but I tell you this, I don’t call many horses pretty. Hansen on the other hand is something else to look at. He is a very pretty horse and have I mentioned he can run! Taking the Gotham Stakes last weekend with […]

If you got to watch the Risen Star Stakes from the Fairgrounds on Saturday you were not let-down! With some great race riding and bumping down the stretch, the heavily favored El Padrino caught Mark Valeski and narrowly beat him to the wire to win the money. The long-stretch seemed to help this horse as […]

Thousands of rural jobs are at risk if the cash-strapped government withdraws the horse racing industry’s annual $345-million share of slot machine revenues – money that the Liberals are now calling a “subsidy”. Unfortunately, this is the buzz surrounding racing in Ontario right now, the so-called subsidy, which in reality is the 20% share of […]

The Kentucky Derby: the Run for the Roses! When it comes to horse racing it’s the Mack Daddy of them all, the dream of every breeder, owner, trainer, jockey and groom. It compares to the Superbowl.  It’s not a seven game series, rather it’s a one-shot deal strictly for three-year-old thoroughbreds. Sure, there are races […]
