Racing Dudes Divisional Rankings 7/22/15

Older Males

1. Shared Belief – He still sits atop this division because no other horse can string together consecutive wins.  Hopefully he’s healing up well.

2. California Chrome – Out for the remainder of 2015, however he will return in 2016.

3. Honor Code – Has been great in one turn races so the Whitney is going to be a test.

4. Noble Bird – Rising star in the game right now, and recently had a strong workout at Saratoga.

5. Lea – Has finished second three straight times, but all three have come against top notch competition.

Sleeper: Coach Inge – Won the Brooklyn, and then ran a tremendous race in the Suburban Handicap.

Older Females

1. Beholder – Finally came back to the track and was tremendous! Really hoping she can stay healthy the rest of the year.

2. Untapable – Doesn’t look to be the same filly as last year, but hopefully Asmussen gets her right

3. Stopchargingmaria – She never is impressive, but she just keeps winning races.

4. Wedding Toast – Consistent runner took down Untapable last time out.

5. Sheer Drama – Turned the table on Frivolous last in the Delaware Handicap.  Might be ready to make some noise.

Sleeper: Judy the Beauty – Has been forgotten about somewhat, but should be regarded as the top sprinter of the bunch.

3 Year Old Males

1. American Pharoah – “American Pharoah is finally the one! American Pharoah has won the Triple Crown!”

2. Dortmund – Was undefeated coming into the Triple Crown races, and didn’t embarrass himself in either race.

3. Frosted – Would have been a Belmont winner in a good number of other runnings…just born in the same year as a freak!

4. Firing Line – He’s out for the remainder of the year which is really sad to hear.

5. Carpe Diem – Hoping for a big summer campaign starting with the Jim Dandy.

Sleeper: Speighster – Defeated Texas Red easily in the Dwyer Stakes. How far can he go, and where will we see him next?

3 Year Old Female

1. Lady Eli – An amazing performance as she destroyed the field in the Belmont Oaks.  Terrible news that she now has laminitis…future is in question.

2. I’m a Chatterbox – Owns a win over Lovely Maria, and ran very well in the Kentucky Oaks. Might like a little shorter races in the future.

3. Lovely Maria – Surely she’ll run better than that Delaware Oaks disaster next time out. Give her a slight pass for now, but better find her form soon.

4. Curalina – Could be the best filly in the country on dirt after that impressive Acorn win. Aiming for Saratoga as of now.

5. Stellar Wind – Very courageous effort at Santa Anita to win the Summertime Oaks. Could be ready for a big second half of the year.

Sleeper: Include Betty – Mother Goose effort was visually impressive, but none of the top horses in this group were there.


1. Secret Circle – Awesome win in Dubai…horse is a warrior.

2. Salutos Amigos – Stellar comeback tells me he’s ready for a huge summer campaign.

3. Private Zone – Super consistent…brings his front running speed every single time.

4. Masochistic – Simply awesome performance in the Triple Bend at Santa Anita. Ran a solid field off their feet.

5. Work All Week – Wouldn’t give up on him yet. Ran a better race in the Smile Sprint than you might think.

Sleeper: Rock Fall – Needs to prove it to us a few more times, but the horses he beat are coming back to run very well.
