Let's get to your questions, comments, and past performance requests (so massive that this will be Part 1 of 2).


Would you mind posting PP's for Officer? Thanks!

Officer's past performances are available at the bottom of this blog posting.


Hey Dan, please, could you post the past performances of the winners of the KY Derby, Preakness, Belmont, Haskell and Travers? Thanks!
Could you please post the pps of these recent retired champs: Karelian, Kane Hekili, Midshipman, Dar Re Mi and thes stallions Devil's Bag and The Green Monkey? thank you in advance!

Those Past performances are available under the "Top 3yos" header at the bottom of the blog posting


Thanks for the status update on Misremembered and Mona de Momma. I have not been able to find the Disabled List since the site upgrade!
Any info on the following horses?
3 yo filly Amen Hallelujah- 2nd in the Acorn
sprinter Custom for Carlos;
and Presious Passion- any word if he will return to racing?
Thanks! (and how can I find the Disabled List!)

From the "Inside Post" blog on 6/5/10:

Custom for Carlos, the 5-2 morning-line favorite for today's True North Handicap, was injured in his stall last night and has been scratched.
'We're not sure how it happened, but he tore a piece of the hoof wall off a front leg," said trainer Eddie Kenneally. "He'll be fine, but he will have to miss a couple days of training and is out of the race."

Custom for Carlos breezed three furlongs in 37.25 at Saratoga's Oklahoma Training Track  on August 5, but hasn't worked since. 

From Mike Farrell posted on 7/8/10:

The winner of the last two runnings of the Grade 1 United Nations Stakes will not defend his title on Saturday at Monmouth Park, and trainer Mary Hartmann said the 7-year-old gelding is getting a freshening at a private farm in nearby Colts Neck, N.J.
Presious Passion did not run well in his last two races, finishing 16th in the Dubai Sheema Classic on March 27 and seventh in the Monmouth Stakes on June 12.
“Physically, he’s fine,” Hartmann said. “He just didn’t seem to be on his game. I wouldn’t send him out and embarrass him.”
This could be the first extended break for Presious Passion, a career winner of over $2.6 million. There is no target date for a return.
Hartmann said Presious Passion had brief turnouts in the past but never seemed comfortable on a farm. She is hopeful the gelding will have a more relaxing experience this time.“Generally, he doesn’t like the farm,” Hartmann said. “This is right here, and I can visit often. If he doesn’t like the farm, he rest here back at the track.”
In addition to a second U.N. victory, Presious Passion had a banner year in 2009. He also won the Grade 1 Clement Hirsch Stakes and ran second in the Breeders’ Cup Turf, beaten a half-length by Conduit.

Presious Passion is back in training.  He worked five furlongs in 1:04.00b at Monmouth on September 8, and then breezed a mile in 1:44.20 at Monmouth on Tuesday morning.

As for the Disabled List, I've fallen behind since Saratoga and am feverishly trying to catch up.  When I'm up to date, and it still may be a bit of time before that happens, I'll post a link to the blog.  Until then, if you have a question about a particular horse, post it to the blog, and I'll do my best to find out the story.


The Del Mar Derby made me think of a horse a previous winner in the early 90's: Guide. I thought he was gfoing to be a good one. Any idea what happened to him and PP's please. Thanks

Guide's past performances are available at the bottom of this blog posting.  I'm not sure what happened with Guide, and that's one of the many problems this industry must solve.  When a horse is retired, the Jockey Club should be notified where that horse is headed.   Obviously, keeping track of thousands of horses would be problematic, but the public deserves to know the fate of their favorite runners.  With some of these old geldings, we hope for the best and assume the worst, and that's just not right.


In honor of the passing of Greinton this past week, could we please have his past performances, and just for fun, how about Precisionist's as well. Those two had the California rivalry of the mid-80's. That '85 Charles H Strub Stakes where Precisionist hung a half a lip on Greinton at the wire is truly one of the best races I ever saw live. Precisionist swept the Strub Series in that race back when that series really meant something.

The past performances of Greinton and Precisionist are available at the bottom of this blog posting.


Can you please post some pp's on: Alla Breva, Stormy Atlantic, Stalwart Member and Fit to Fight?

You can access those past performances under the "Oldtimers" header at the bottom of this blog posting.


Jeffrey, come on in the waters fine. Watch out for the Aligators though. The cheap claimers have always treated me better than the good ones. I named my daughter after one of them. Maybe Longshot Dan can find the PP's for Restage, one that my buddies and I used to make a habit out of on the socal circuit ?

Restage's past performances are at the bottom of this blog posting.


PS: DAN, if you get a chance can I get a PP for Bartlett Kid (1994)?

By know, you know where they are.

Here are the top 25 Winning Beyer Speed Figures from last week's racing action:

Gayego's past performances are available below.


Back with Part 2 in a day or two.
