  4. Aidan O’Brien (right) at the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races.Aidan O’Brien is no stranger to world record-breaking achievements at the very highest level so when he targets a 2022 Hong Kong International Races event with three super horses, rival claimants will inevitably beware. More so perhaps because O’Brien has captured the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase (2400m) three times in the past seven years, plus the Irishman’s extraordinary international Group 1 tally was enhanced three times further at Keeneland’s Breeders’ Cup meeting earlier this month. No doubt tactical strategies for the 2400

  9. While waiting on final information from some non-commingled locations, Horseshoe Indianapolis estimated that its total all-sources handle for the track's 2022 combined Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse meet will be nearly $235 million, showing an increase of 5.2% over figures in 2021.

Throw kerosene on the flames, when certain trainers were indicted by the Feds, and as Fred Capossela and Costy Caras echoed, “It's now post time!” For years, horse racing was sometimes called the Sp
