Racing Dudes Divisional Rankings

Racing Dudes Divisional Rankings

Older Males

1. Palace Malice – Gearing up for a run in the Whitney Handicap on August 2nd.  Will Saratoga treat him well once again?

2. Wise Dan – It looks like he’s making a full recovery and will be back to the races this summer.  Will he return with the same ability?

3. Moonshine Mullin – The training job by Randy Morse has been nothing short of amazing with Moonshine! Five straight victories including the Grade 1 Stephen Foster.

4. Will Take Charge – His effort in the Stephen Foster was an improvement…perhaps he’s ready for a big Summer.

5. Game On Dude – Threw in another dud performance in the Gold Cup.  They are starting to happen more often now.

Sleeper: Lea – Finally back on the workout tab…look out.

Older Females

1. Close Hatches – New leader of this division is now three for three including an exciting win in the Ogden Phipps.

2. Princess of Sylmar – She was just a nose away from taking over the number one spot as she was just edged out by Close Hatches.

3. Beholder – She’s much better than her Ogden Phipps effort and will regroup.

4. Midnight Lucky – Freakish type sprinter may not be able to go two turns, but has ability.

5. Iotapa – Seems to always run a big one at some point…can she string a few together?

Sleeper: Dreaming of Julia – If she ever makes it back in good form we don’t know how good she could end up being…

3 Year Old Males

1. California Chrome – Was still decent in defeat, and CLEARY is the leader of the division heading into the summer.

2. Tonalist – Gutsy effort to win the Belmont by horse that has gotten through some set backs and now might be ready to really shine.

3. Danza – Injured, but still ranks ahead of the others in my opinion. Will be hard to hold onto this spot.

4. Wicked Strong – Not the greatest of runs for him at the Belmont, but still might have a decent summer.

5. Ride On Curlin – Was a non-factor in the Belmont, but still had a solid Triple Crown and prep season. Needs to find himself a win soon.

Sleeper: Bobby’s Kitten – Huge Penn Mile victory could be sign of a huge summer turf campaign.

3 Year Old Females

1. Untapable – She’s really good…and the rest are really bad.

2. My Miss Sophia – Ran poorly in the Acorn but her resume is still better than the ones below her.

3. Unbridled Forever – Was able to hit the board in both big races at Churchill and Belmont but is majorly below the top one in here.

4. Size – Up and coming horse looked pretty solid in the Iowa Oaks.  Must step up against tougher next time though.

5. Stopchargingmaria – Looks like she’s rounding back into form, which could make her dangerous to everyone on this list except for Untapable.

Sleeper: Rosalind – Has shown a decent amount of talent and could improve.


1. Goldencents – Thought his Met Mile race showed he was back in a big way! No disgrace losing to Palace Malice.

2. Work All Week – This horse is nothing short of incredible.  Who can beat him?  Can an Illinois be the top sprinter in the country?  Maybe…

3. Bayern – Could be this year’s version of Goldencents as a three year old. His Woody Stephens wins was FREAKISH.

4. Declassify – What a courageous effort to win the Triple Bend last weekend.  Not sure he’s as talented as some, but will fight until the end.

5. Secret Circle – It’s been a long time since we’ve seen him…don’t know what’s up with him.

Sleeper: Delaunay – He ran a great race in the Iowa Sprint Handicap, just couldn’t beat Work All Week.
