Casino Drive… Classic Potential?

Casino Drive... Classic Potential?

Before dawn, I was photographing silhouettes at Santa Anita when I saw a familiar blaze and I smiled… The horse walked briskly toward me… A leggy chestnut from Japan… A regal pedigree… Half brother of two Belmont Stakes winners… Rival of Big Brown… Winner on the Santa Anita Surface… Undefeated…

Can Casino Drive take down Curlin in the Classic and avenge his unfinished business from the Belmont Stakes? Just HOW good IS this horse?

Or will another horse play the Classic spoiler? Colonel John looks fantastic- if he runs to his looks, he could win big tomorrow. And what about Grade 1 winner Go Between?

If you’d like to see my Breeders’ Cup photos (including Zenyatta’s A-W-E-S-O-M-E win in the Distaff), check them out in the Thoroughbred Daily News. Subscription is free and you can get the newsletter link sent to you each day. You can also sign up to get TDN Alerts sent to your phone for the latest news in racing. Go to and click on the Subscribe for Free link on the upper left part of the screen. TDN is also available in print at the Breeders’ Cup, as well as at the top sales and races around the world.

This will most likely be my last photo posted from California. Next time I post, I’ll be back in Jersey. Can’t I stay just a little longer? I love it here.
