  • RIDE ON CURLIN –Daniel Dougherty’s Ride On Curlin galloped an easy 1 1/8 miles after the morning renovation break at Churchill Downs with exercise rider Bryan Beccia up.

    Trainer Billy Gowan said Ride On Curlin would go to the track at 6 o’clock Monday morning to train before being prepared for a 10 a.m. departure by van to Lexington to join California Chrome on a flight bringing him to Pimlico.

    Beccia’s departure will be quicker.

    “As soon as I jump off him, I’m jumping in my car and heading to Baltimore,” Beccia said.

    Trainer Billy Gowan was pleased with the Kentucky-based preparation for the Preakness for Ride On Curlin, who will be ridden Saturday by Joel Rosario.

    “Everything has been perfect; just like we drew it up,” Gowan said. “When he gets there, he may school in the paddock one day but won’t go to the gate. He’ll gallop tomorrow and maybe work a bit Wednesday.

  • Ride On Curlin will likely take some money after a troubled trip in the Kentucky Derby. Swithing to Joel Rosario will only hurt his price. He will need to run the race of his life to win the Preakness and at short odds I'm not willing to pay to find out if he can do it.

  • RIDE ON CURLIN – Trainer Billy Gowan watched Ride On Curlin breeze “an easy half-mile” in 49 3/5 seconds from the Pimlico press box porch Wednesday morning with a small entourage that included owner Daniel Dougherty and invited guest Art Sherman, trainer of Kentucky Derby winner and Preakness Stakes favorite California Chrome.
    Pimlico clocker Mark Euga called fractions of 12 2/5 (seconds), 25 1/5 and 37 3/5 for three furlongs after exercise rider Bryan Beccia broke off from the half-mile pole. The seventh-place finisher in Louisville galloped out in 1:03 3/5 for five furlongs.
    “I thought it was good,” said Gowan, who has only four horses in his stable, including the Arkansas Derby runner-up. “He probably couldn’t make him go much slower without just throwing him down. He could have gone a little faster, of course. We’ve been taking it real slow since the Derby. I usually like to work him five or six days out (from a race), but with the Derby, walking him three days and shipping up we had to wait. It’s not a big deal.”
    Ride On Curlin, along with General a Rod, is one of only two Derby runners to come to Baltimore to re-try Sherman’s budding superstar in the Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown.
    “The way things are today, people don’t like to run their horses back in two weeks,” said Gowan, a former assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Jack Van Berg. “My horse came out the next day after the Derby and I was walking him and he was on his hind legs. I say if they’re doing good, run ‘em.”
    Ride On Curlin has run more than most of the sophomores in the upper echelon of this generation. He’s had 10 career starts and the Preakness will be his sixth trip to the starting gate already this season. The Derby was the only race in which he failed to hit the board, but that was a troubled trip under Calvin Borel. Gowan is switching riders to Joel Rosario for this race.
    “I think he’ll be a good fit for the horse,” Gowan said. “Hopefully with the speed in here there’ll be something for him to run at. I’m just hoping we get a good trip this time.”
    Sherman and Gowan expressed mutual respect three days out from their rematch.
    “He (Ride On Curlin) looked pretty good,” said Sherman, who arrived on Tuesday from California. “This is a great view of the track from up here.”
    “He (California Chrome) looks like a pretty good horse to me,” Gowan said. “I can’t see any flaws in him.”
  • TVG on-site at the Preakness - talking Ride On Curlin:
  • David Grening @DRFGrening
    John Velazquez confirmed to ride Ride On Curlin in Belmont, per Gowan. Rosario committed to Tonalist.
  • After 2014 Preakness, California Chrome and Ride On Curlin (VIDEO):
  • Flash Forward is running May 24th in the Sheepshead Bay Stakes. She is trained by Dominick Schettino and owned by MeB Racing Stables LLC. Her jockey is unknown.
  • Next we come to Preakness runner-up Ride On Curlin. Being by Curlin, who was beaten a zap in the Belmont Stakes and winner of the Breeders’ Cup Classic, there is an excellent base to start with.

    His dam, Magical Ride, however, was purely a sprinter, whose career tailed off dramatically. Magical Ride is out of Victory Ride, a top-class filly who was effective up to a mile. But once again, there is stamina in the tail-female family through Victory Ride’s sire Seeking the Gold, as well as Flying Paster and especially Youth. Youth was a French-trained distance specialist who captured the Washington D.C. International, Canadian International, French Derby, Prix Lupin, and was third in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Ride On Curlin is inbred three times 4x4x5 to Northern Dancer.

    So, once again, we have a horse with a good deal of sprinting speed in his female family, but several heavy stamina influences, which, like with Commanding Curve, appear to be the dominant influence.

    Just remember, however, that there is a big difference between a mile and a quarter and a mile and a half, especially on a large sweeping track like Belmont. But both colts have running styles to suggest they can get that extra quarter mile, but it’s certainly no guarantee.
