Wow they finally dropped the filly who beat nobody this year to second in the rankings. Must have been a slow day at the office. Chrome should have been number one from the start.

  • Kimberly Beth via Disqus · Songbird belongs in first - she has no losses. None. She will show all the naysayers on November 4th. All the other filly's were afraid to race against her, look how long it took Cathryn Sophia to finally suck It up. She is undefeated and should be in first. · 30 seconds ago

  • Kimberly Beth via Disqus · Thanks again guys - love these!! I am happy to see Frosted running in the Classic, he belongs there. And I agree with Matt, I happen to like the DM and believe that is where Dortmund should be running. I am rooting for him. Filly mare turf, - it's got to be Lady Eli - how can anybody root against the beautiful, amazing girl??? I am so damn excited about all of the races next weekend. Won't be there in person, but I took the weekend off from work so that I can watch all of the races! · 11 minutes ago

His owners have confirmed which Breeder's Cup race he'll be entered in. The Turf Sprint was ruled out, so they'll enter him in the Mile where he'll have to face Tepin once more. According to Paul Jacobs they discussed which race to put Limato in at length and the overall feeling was that they should go for broke and put him in the BC Mile. Henry Candy admits he's been itching to give Limato another go at a mile and thinks that the difference in track should suit Limato better.
I don't know why folks are so shocked. On paper she has held her own at the highest level If you look at the classic field in reality other than Chrome no one has had a stellar consistent year. Really if you look at chrome without prejudice he won Dubai against a fairly weak field and has run only in California and other than Beholder really hasn't beaten anyone there either. If Found Transforms to dirt which that will be the million dollar question , but if she does I think she has a huge shot

Aga Khan Studs has announced that Harzand will be retired to stand at Gilltown Stud in 2017 where he will stand alongside his sire Sea The Stars as well as Born To Sea. He is viewable on appointment, but his fee has yet to be announced.
Donegal Racing's Keen Ice is under serious consideration for the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic on November 5 at Santa Anita, said trainer Todd Pletcher following a six-furlong breeze over the training track Sunday morning at Belmont Park.Read More
  • Maryse · Please, don`t run him in the classic! I wouldn`t have gone to Pletcher in the first place, not with Keen Ice nor with any other horse. He`s not ready for the BCC! Put him in a low graded stakes race if you can`t be patient with him but not this race. · 18 hours ago
Rewatching the 2015 Travers, I think Lezcano did a very good job riding Frosted, but his timing was slightly off. He started the duel at the 6/8 pole. If he had started the duel at the 5/8 pole, Frosted might have won that race by a nose. Fast forward to the 2016 BCC, in order for Frosted to have a chance at the top 3, Joel Rosario will probably have to be aggressive with Frosted early (especially on the SA dirt track).

  • Mr. Sandman via Disqus · Stop making excuses for Frosted and his rider. It is what it is and that's not saying much. Good horse at mile, maybe mile and 1/8 but, after that, he loses interest and gives up. The horse doesn't like the whip, the only reason you use the whip is to let the horse know I need you to go faster which he seems to do the opposite. · 1 day ago
  • sczen50 · No chance... he faded very quickly there in that stretch by the call.. he came in 3rd & wasn't that close. He would've won had he laid back...had a better chance anyway~ · 3 hours ago
BC Distaff = Songbird = 12-0 baby!!!!! Woo Hoo. :-)
You guys are wrapped up in a 1/8 mile distance difference?. It's not about the equal distance. Arrogate ran a hard 1 1/4 mile his last race and California Chrome ran a comfortable 1 1/8 mile and his splits were faster up to a mile after which CC was galloping. In fact California Chrome's 1 1/8 mile Awesome Again split at 6 furlongs was 1:09.24 almost as fast as Arrogate ran in a 6 furlong race (1:09.14). You wanna compare equal distances only? Arrogate's best 1 1/16 time is 1:41.1 and California Chrome's best time this year at that distance is a quater of a second faster at 1:40.84 and a life time best of 1:40.56. Like I said before Arrogate is a nice horse. Apparently he is a fragile horse that Baffert needed to train up to the Breeder's Cup Classic before he could face the "Big Horse" after ducking him twice this summer. Arrogate won't even hit the board, he'll get beat by the philly Found if she runs in the classic. Her trainier Aidan O'Brien apparently is not too worried about Arrogate and in the words of Art Sherman who trains California Chrome "Well, I think I've got the best horse in the country...they better be tied on because we'll be rolling.”

  • steevo · i,l be ordering and indian takeaway , the horse owes me nothing hes won well in his races had him at 14/1 ,, 5/1 ,, 4/1 ,, 2/1 , ,,,,,, 5/1 for the sprint seems good to me , did he come close to breaking a track record , and did he break a track rec last time out in that thrilling finish under a hand ride ? · 6 days ago
  • hoof_hearted2016 · There's only 3 horses to concentrate on in this race: Lord Nelson, Drefong and Masochistic. · 5 hours ago
This horse is lightning fast and he's in great form in 2016. My Top pick for the BC Sprint is definitely Lord Nelson, Drefong is the biggest danger to him, but this guy is definitely in the mix too!!! :-)
I remember the first time I seen her race, I was just messing around playing Australia the one night and had no idea who she was, she blew me away( I believe it was the Queensland oaks) and hasn't lost since. It doesn't matter the distance, doesn't matter the conditions, just a superior animal. I can only dream we get to see her at Royal Ascot next season. I don't know if racing could get any better than a Tepin/Winx/Solow battle.
what track record has chrome beaten what track????
And still the Champion 17 months going strong. Wonder why she's not competing in this year's Breeder's Cup Filly & Mare Turf? Would have been nice to see her go up against Lady Eli, Catch A Glimpse, Avenge, and MTC.
I would love to see him win the Juvenile. He looks similar to Gemologist but he looks like an exact replica of Verrazano.
