    Hurley Horse Happenings - Big Development -- 10/26/07

    Greetings horse lovers for another season of Hurley Horse Happenings for 2007.

    I try to scan the stakes races for Bob Hurley's horses, perhaps a few of the notable descendents of his stallion (Songandaprayer), and a few horses with peculiarly Duke names (e.g., Duke's Cherokee) and keep them visible for those of you (one or two) who might be interested.

    Stream Cat made his seasonal debut in an Allowance race at Keeneland on Friday. The field was quite stiff, including $4.6 Million dollar winner Perfect Drift. Stream Cat won.

    Hurley Horse Happenings

    Stream Cat had his second outing of the season in the Ben Ali Handicap at Keeneland. He finished 4th. In the horse biz, we say "He got a check!".

    You can see the results of the race at:

    If you're interested in seeing the racing form in advance of such races, leave a note and I'll leave a pointer when I can find a freebee on the web.
    We'll see if this gets through:

    Where does Bobby keep his horses? Last summer, while at the beach, I accompanied a close friend to the northern part of Delaware to pick up his daughter and passed several horse farms and stables. I wondered at the time whether Hurley kept his horses in either New Jersey or Delaware.

    Any chance of Bobby having a horse in the Kentucky Derby this year?

    >> Any chance of Bobby having a horse in the Kentucky Derby this year?

    Not unless he, and perhaps a partner, decides to fork over 7 figures for one of the leading 20 horses. To qualify for the Derby you need to be one of the top 20 horses by earnings in Graded Stakes. I haven't seen BH's name associated with any horse's on the Derby trail of that caliber. Buying a piece, or a whole, part of a horse is not unheard of in the days before the derby, but it is usually quite expensive

    I don't know for sure, but most probably their base of operations is in Florida. It is more hospitable year round down there, and that is where his stud is.
    His stakes horses, which are easier for me to notice, are the more likely ones to be traveling from track to track. I look at the stakes races mostly so I'm less likely to find the Hurley horses that are small time performers at local tracks.

    With the Breeder's Cup at Monmouth Park in NJ his trainer may have a stable of horses up here in NJ for the summer. They are likely to have a good schedule of prep races and during the summer and fall there will be access to Saratoga, Belmont, and The Meadowlands for shipping to other stakes. It should be a very interesting year. We'll keep an eye out.

    Any chance of a Hurley sighting at Saratoga this year?

    Always A Chance

    Of course there is always a chance...

    They have one of the glamour yearling sales of the year up at the spa.
    So if he is looking for yearlings, that is one of several places to do it.
    But it is quite pricey!

    As far as racing goes, I don't recall if any of his horses have raced there before. They are more likely to race during the summer at Monmouth in NJ (perhaps for obvious reasons).

    Results for Jealous Rage and also Praying For Cash

    http://www.drf.com/drfNCWeeklyHorseD...70713&raceNo=2

    Although I would note that Bob Hurley is no longer listed as an owner, so he either owns a silent minority, or he sold the horse.

    In better news, Praying For Cash WON in his seasonal debut at 6.5 furlongs at Belmont Park! I saw the race and it was a snappy performance.
    Praying For Cash is exclusively owned by Bob Hurley and is out of Bob's stud Songandaprayer.

    Arlington Million Result - Some Updates..!!

    1) Stream Cat continues to be owned in part by Bobby Hurley. This fact was confirmed on ABC where the race was covered.

    2) Stream Cat ran a very impressive race against some of the best turfers in the world, finishing a closing 4th by slightly less than a length. The results can be read here.
    http://www.drf.com/drfNCWeeklyHorseD...70811&raceNo=9

    The result has to be encouraging for the connections of this horse.

    Result - Praying For Cash - Finish 9th

    Praying For Cash had a short lead early. He was 12-1 odds and was out classed by superior sprinters in this 7 furlong race. The top 2 horses were much the best. PFC finished in with a group of horses. I'd call it an uninspired race for this horse.

    Big Hurley Horse Happening

    Folks,

    On Saturday, Bob Hurley's Stream Cat will be racing at Turfway Park in the Kentucky Cup Classic for a purse of $350,000. This will be an elite 5 horse field that includes <drum roll please> this year's Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense and top Triple Crown participant Hard Spun as they tune up for the Breeder's Cup here in lovely New Jersey at Monmouth Park later in October.
    - Stream Cat had an excellent start last time out, finishing 4th in the Arlington Million by less than a length; he could be improving toward a great effort (or not).
    - Street Sense has been nothing short of brilliant this year, and this is his 3rd race back after a short break from the triple crown races (obviously the one to beat).
    - Hard Spun has been trying the turf, successfully, but returns to the dirt to see if a few months has improved his chances; I'd expect that if he doesn't win this race against Street Sense, you'll see Hard Spun in the Breeder's Cup Turf for $2 Million instead of the Classic.
    - There are 2 other horses in the race, but who are we kidding, their riders will have a great view of the finish.
    Stream Cat will need to be near the pace to have any shot. This is a very tall order.

    Stream Cat Finish 3rd in the KY Derby (almost)

    Well, Stream Cat finished 3rd, some 4.5 lengths behind the (slight) upset winner Hard Spun. The top two horses finished 1/2 (actually 2/1) in this years Kentucky Derby, so finishing some 4.5 lengths back is no disgrace. The race was 1/5 of a second off of the track record, so it was a very well run race. But Stream Cat is a notch or two below the top two.

    The connections will have to deal with the $35K consolation prize :^)

    Here is the race result:

    Hurley Horse Happenings - Oct 5 - Big M Cup

    Greetings GG followers,

    Praying For Cash will be running in the Meadowlands Cup this friday (Oct 5, 2007) at the Meadowlands. This will not be an easy task. This is a field of 7 with several seasoned, and excellent, performers most notably Magna Graduate. But the 1 and 1/8 furlong distance seems to suit PFC, so I'd give him a shot at a check.

    The past performances can be found here thanks to Brisnet:

    Praying For Cash - Oct 5 - Result

    Folks,

    Praying For Cash was in it early in the race but gave way to better horses. He had the best view of the remaining horses :^)
    Sometimes it just happens that way in horse racing.

    Here are the results:
