The inaugural running of the GIII HorseRacingBuzz.net Mile gets under way this Saturday at Equination. The race is sponsored by horseracingbuzz.net, the Internet’s premiere site for both virtual and international real life horse racing news. Along with news and information on the racing scene, the website provides discussion boards, links to other sites including a virtual racing gear gift shop and sponsored contests open to Equination members.
Highlight of this past weekend’s virtual horse racing action from Equination.net was the Equination.net Derby. This ten furlong race is restricted to three year olds and is the first leg of Equination’s Triple Crown. Not only is this the most prestigious race in the calender but it also boasts a bumper purse of $1,250,000 and unsurprisingly attracted a field of the highest caliber.
The highlight of this past weekend’s virtual horse racing action from Equination.net was the Hershey Kiss Classic (G2), run over a mile and a quarter on the dirt for six year olds and over. A competitive looking field of seventeen went to post and although it was probably true to say that some of these veterans are on the downgrade, it was going to take a decent one to win here.
Coming up this Sunday in Equination is the fifteenth annual running of the Hershey Kiss Classic (GII). The mile and a quarter race on the dirt is open to six-year-olds and upward. Held in memory of the first horse ever created in Equination, Hershey Kiss, the race offers a purse of $500,000. Here, we will take a look at the field of contenders.
