Not a lot has changed in the jockey goggle business since 1947, when Israel Kroop first stitched trim around a molded sheet of plastic, added two brass vents from a mattress, and attached a strip of elastic. Kroop's design — a made-in-Maryland...
Elmont, NY – Paynter stayed where he was, a few feet off the rail, charging toward the finish. Everyone whose heart had been broken by Union Rags before must have had the same thought: he's not going to squeeze through. But then, delivering upon...
Really, the frustration began at last year’s Belmont. That’s when Animal Kingdom, Graham Motion’s finest horse to date, was cut off and, while veering away, clipped heels and almost tossed his jockey. It took a thunderous run at the end...
You heard some derivative of the phrase over and over yesterday: "I've been around horse racing a long time, and I've never seen something like this." Or: "In all my years covering sports, I haven't had many days like this." And, so, here are some...

A steady, cool wind swept across the track at the Fair Hill Training Center Friday as two trainers prepared colts to run in next Saturday’s 137th Preakness. Went the Day Well, the fourth-place finisher in the Kentucky Derby trained by Graham...

Rick Dutrow knows there's a difference coming into Preakness with a horse that has won the Kentucky Derby and one that didn't even make it to the starting gate at Churchill Downs. If anything, it might be a little easier for Dutrow coming to Pimlico...
