Monday Afternoon Rewind: Global Superstar

The racing world continues to buzz about Arrogate collecting a major prize and in the most dramatic of fashions to win the $10 million Dubai World Cup over the weekend. Arrogate highlighted a spectacular afternoon of racing and we take a look back as always in our Monday Afternoon Rewind. It’s the good, bad and the ugly. There’s a little of each below, mostly because of our picks. 

Postcards from Cheltenham

Another one in the books. The Cheltenham Festival has come and gone, leaving memories and mementos. From the Mullins/Walsh four timer Thursdsay to Jessica Harrington’s three winners including Sizing John's Cheltenham Gold Cup to Gordon Elliott’s official coming of age to the women’s sweep of the amateur races, this year’s Festival had it all. TIHR’s Sean Clancy penned a few postcards from Cheltenham.

The Saturday Special – March 25

Who’s ready for the next few weeks? Everything will be fast and furious starting this weekend, with the rich Dubai World Cup card at Meydan and Spiral Stakes taking top billing, followed by monster Saturdays featuring the Florida Derby and Louisiana Derby April 1, Wood Memorial, Blue Grass and Santa Anita Derby the week after and the Arkansas Derby the week after that.

Steeplechase Picks & Preview: Start it up at Aiken

You ready for this? The 2017 National Steeplechase Association season leaps into action Saturday with the 51st annual Aiken Steeplechase in Aiken, S.C. Even if winter was relatively mild in much of the steeplechase region, it seems like we just finished putting away the snow shovels.

Good Night Shirt, Voss reach Hall of Fame

Good Night Shirt, the Eclipse Award winner for champion steeplechase horse in 2007 and 2008, and the late Tom Voss, a five-time National Steeplechase Association leader in wins and a three-time leader in earnings, have been elected to the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame by the Museum’s Steeplechase Review Committee.

Monday Afternoon Rewind: Taking stock

As we say most weeks, we’ll take the good, bad, ugly or indifferent as long as we at least get a few winners sprinkled in here and there. Every (most) Monday we look back at last week’s Saturday Special to see if we did uncover any winners and hint at some good stories to come.
