Winchell Thoroughbreds, Three Chimneys and Besilu Stables' Gun Runner came back well from his third-place finish in the Travers and now will be pointed toward the Grade 2, $1 million Pennsylvania Derby on September 24 at Parx Racing, according to Scott Blasi, assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Steve...Read More
Masochistic, the overwhelming favorite at 1-5, delivered as expected Saturday with a brilliant front-running victory under jockey Tyler Baze in the featured Grade II $200,000 Pat O’Brien Stakes. Read More
Reading the chart it appears something may have spooked Exaggerator. It said that he was squeezed at the start between Destin and Anaximandros due to pressure from Connect and then appeared to shy either from a rival or a shadow! So, maybe the track surface had nothing whatsoever to do with Exaggerator's performance today.
Arrogate was lucky to find himself on the lead with those easy fractions..especially mid fractions on that speed track especially at long distances..any one of a handful of horses in there if they got lucky and found themself as the ones on the lead they would have been the winner and track record holder..sometimes it pays to be in right spot at right time..regardless who won the travers today..they wont do much of anything in the BCC vs the top horses and where the track bias wont able them to run same kind of race

  • Hardfreeze · Hahaha that is a very stupid comment. I agree that he might not be better than the older horses but this colt didn't "get lucky" and "find himself on the lead". He ran fast enough early to put the field away while getting pressured by 2 very good horses in American Freedom and Gun Runner. The bottom line is this - 12 length winner in 1:59.36. The fastest 1 1/4 at Saratoga at the distance ever. Pretty impressive and luck had nothing to do with it. · 23 hours ago
  • lostarts via Disqus · Silly Comment, Arrogate was primed for high stakes competition. Anyone who watches SoCal racing knows he is among a super talent young crop of horses coming out of Socal. Just like Drefong, Enola Grey, Chasing Aces, Champagne Room, Green With Eddie, Big League. No Surprises here. =D · 20 hours ago

She did fantastic under a very Very fast time with an almost 16 Month layoff!!!! & Only losing by 3 parts of a length. GREAT job for Lady ELI...& can't take anything away from the winner!

  • Elhubbo · Wow, I'm trying to remember seeing another horse looking that strong at the wire. Arrogate is no fluke. All I could think the last furlong was how much that resembled Ghostzapper. · 23 hours ago
  • Blueyedhusky via Disqus · It's funny how I made this comment in another thread yesterday: "Look at the Travers stakes, the stakes and track record (2:00.00) was set by General Assembly in 1979. The only other G1 he won was the Hopeful at age two. Since then, only two horses have come within a second of that record, Easy Goer in 1989 (2:00.80) and Thunder Rumble in 1992 (2:00.99). We all know who Easy Goer was, but Thunder Rumble's only G1 win was the Travers. So what does that prove? Any good horse is capable of having an exceptional race on any given day. Take Frosted's Met Mile. He set the stakes record, does that mean he's better than Ghostzapper, Holy Bull, Forego, Kelso, and Native Dancer?" Then, curiously enough, along comes Arrogate and breaks the track and Travers record in the most impressive fashion. So now we're faced with the same question I posed in the last paragraph: Does this exceptional performance make him better than other great horses who have won the Travers? I guess time will tell. The same goes for Frosted. The point is that they need to follow up their exceptional record-breaking performance with something consistent with it. Otherwise it would've just been a perfect storm that day. · 20 hours ago

  • sully · Think Holograeme is a bet against. Box the 2,3,5,7 in a super and hope the public reads too much into that last effort or part wheel if opinion is stronger for some over others to keep ticket cost down. · 22 hours ago
Is he considered the top sprinter in North America? It's not a group that I follow closely.
  • https://www.facebook.com/john. · Certainly one of them now with back to back Gr.1 wins. Lord Nelson on the West Coast, X Y Jet who has been out of action since Dubai and reigning BC Sprint Champ Runhappy who is returning from a long layoff are also among the top. · 23 hours ago
Where the $%#! did this horse come from?
Majestic Pride wins the Brooks Fields and Prado's Sweet Ride wins the Minnesota H.B.P.A Distaff.
Got a signed pare of boots from him at Canterbury today.
One Mean Man noses out Whatawonderflworld in the Mystic Lake Derby ins one of the most exciting races in Canterbury history.
This race was just exuding with class. They all showed their talent with that blanket finish. Very nice win from cavorting in a very exciting race. I wish this was a 10f race
where is Arrogate heading next? to the BBC or is he going to run another race before the BCC?
  • KatieK101 · I would think that they would try to get another race underneath him, but I've not heard anything definite. · 1 day ago
  • Players Klub via Disqus · I think they will skip the AA and wait for one big swing at the BCC. · 1 day ago
Incredible run. Amazing time. Finishing the last quarter in 23 as a three year old is rare. Breaking the stakes and track record in 1.59 and two on a tiring track like Saratoga is serious business and he's a great contender for the breeders cup. I'm sad he missed the triple crown as he could have made a lot of noise. Chrome will have his weight cut out for him since arrogate will be getting a weight allowance as a three year old if he goes in the awesome again or breeders cup classic

Exaggerator's Eclipse dream just died.

This colt proved me wrong. I thought he would fold in the derby Haskell and travers and he tries his best each time. He's a lot better than I thought he was.
