By My Standards is a very good racehorse and has four grade 2 stakes wins to prove it. He also has won over $1,800,000. Yet, you hardly ever see or hear anything about him. I guess that is because of horses like Authentic, Maximum Security, and Tiz The Law getting most of the headlines.

I have been reading up on him and am very impressed. For one thing, he is very consistent only being out of the money twice (Breeders Cup Classic and Kentucky Derby. Maybe a mile and a quarter just is not his distance). Other than that, he is almost always first or second despite racing in mostly graded stakes races. I think he was third once in a maiden race.

What do people here think of By My Standards? Thoughts?

His sire and dam were relatively durable and in the money quite often as well.
Wish I had a confo pic, but race Alysheba stakes replay shows powerful, efficient running style.
On the shallow side, great, rare shade of lighter bay. :)
I'd take a chance. I like Goldencents.

Thanks for responding.

I like Goldencents too. I wonder about one thing though. He had a terrific first crop with 2 big horses in millionaires By My Standards and Mr. Money. In his second and third crops, nothing like those two yet. He gets a lot of two year old winners and runners and seems like a bargain with his 15K stud fee, but I hope he gets another big horse like Mr. Money or By My Standards pretty soon.

A two year old son of Goldencents named No Cents won a 100K stakes race at Laurel Park today for his third win in four races (he finished second in his first race). His races have all been sprints, so I don't know if he will stretch out later. Maybe he won't turn out to be a multiple graded stakes winner like By My Standards or Mr. Money, but it is nice to see this anyway. Besides, who knows?

Goldencents' progeny seem to be on a roll lately as daughter Malibu Mischief won a 5.5F AOC race at Laurel Park today with a time of 1:02:48.

Yesterday, in addition to No Cents winning a 100K stakes race, another Goldencents' daughter, Golden Ami won a 6.5F allowance race at Woodbine with a time of 1:14:53.

Funny thing about Golden Ami; she didn't race until this year as a 4 year old. Golden Ami has had only 2 races so far and she has won them both.
