What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Lets all make this VERY simple!!..Arrogate..10 starts..Only 4 Grade 1 Wins..1 of them by desperately winning at the "wire"..2 of them by about 2 lengths..and only "1" of them in blow out fashion..And losing his last 2 races..Finishing 4th and Finishing 2nd..if someone told you this horse was an "All Time Great" you would probably ask them what drugs are they on..And if they told you this horse was the "GOAT" you would probably just slap them in the face!
Trainer Bob Baffert swept the top two spots in the Pacific Classic, but Collected was the upset winner over Arrogate. Read More
  • richard jaimungal via Disqus · Clearly Arrogate does not favour the Del Mar surface . He ran brace but nothing like the Arrogate we are accustomed to . Much improved .. will still blow them away in the classic .. · 19 hours ago

"High Promise" looks like he's ready to fire for trainer Bryan Lynch in race #4 at MTH today. This gelding ran an excellent race on 7/28 coming off an 8 month layoff while closing in 29.2 in the one mile and 1/16th turf race. He shortens up to a 1 mile turf race today while adding first time blinker...Read More

Breaking cover in mid-stretch, Hunt (IRE) turned on the afterburners to zip to a Del Mar Handicap win.Read More
According to some of the quotes (particularly from Bob Baffert) from the BH's article on his debut, the signal is stay away from betting him on the first race: "He has Pharoah's and his sister's kind, sweet disposition," Baffert said. "But Pioneerof the Nile was that way, too." "What St Patrick's Day doesn't share, at least so far, is American Pharoah's on-track attitude." "The 2015 Horse of the Year was notoriously difficult early on in his career and showed it before and during his fifth-place debut at Del Mar in 2014. St Patrick's Day is quite different. Where American Pharoah wanted to bolt at all times, his brother is content with inquisitively taking in his surroundings during gallops around Del Mar." "He's just made differently. Pharoah was a leaner-type horse," Baffert said. "And Pharoah was a run-off. He wanted to bolt and run. He was a handful. This guy is a pretty smart colt. He does everything right." "When he came in, he was carrying a little extra weight in the belly," Baffert said. "He's not quite tight yet, but he's doing well. I think he's ready to run. I don't want to do any more with him. Racing will help him..."
Easy Goer - 20 starts - 14 Wins..5 places..1 3rd..Never out of the money..9 Grade 1 Wins - Still only horse to ever win the Belmont/Whitney/Travers/Woodward/JockeyGC - And the only 3-year-old to win the Whitney, Woodward and Jockey Club Gold Cup while defeating older horses - Still owns the fasted beyer speed figure ever run by a 2 year old when winning the Champagne - Owns the highest speed figure by any horse during a classic race - Constantly ran beyers in the 120s - Holds record for fasted mile ever in a dirt stakes race crushing secretariats old record by a full second (Missing Dr Fagers WORLD record by 1/5th of a second) - Ran the fasted 7f at the gulfstream meet - Won Grade 1s at 7f, 8f, 9f, 10f and 12f! - 2nd fasted Belmont Stakes of all time, only behind Secretariat - With a jockey on his back that was too spoiled by this great horse that as everyone seen and is well documented gave him some ATROCIOUS rides as well - Easy Goers Stakes Wins are the following..Cowdin/Champagne/Swale/Gotham/Woodward M/Belmont/Whitney/Travers/Woodward H/JockeyGC/Gold Stage/Suburban H...Easy Goer never lost by more than 2 lengths including 2 losses by a nose and a head -"This" is the resume/career of what you would call an "All Time Great"...Arrogate?..Give me a break
The Pacific Classic is the key race in the Cross-Country All-Stakes Pick 4. Do you think Arrogate will be back to peak condition or could be vulnerable? Read More
Grade 2 Jim Dandy winner Good Samaritan turned in in his last breeze Sunday before his start in next Saturday's Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers presented by NYRA Bets.Read More
Arrogate beat Chrome at the Wire..and this after Chrome has had a long career and close to retirement - Chromes last win in the Dubai was faster than Arrogates..Ran faster than Arrogate at the 1 1/6th distance same track - Chrome put together a 6 race winning streak twice - Chromes average margin of victory was 8 lengths in his 7 wins in 2016 - Chrome has the MUCH better resume/Career.. And everyone knows Chrome wasnt himself in last race of his career in the Pegasus..Based on all of this plus Arrogates career, you cant say Arrogate was better than Chrome based on ONE race where he just caught him at the wire - ill take Chrome as the better horse any day of the week and take his career/resume..And im not even a "Chromie"
Todays mentality - Horse is 4 for 15 lifetime..All of sudden wins a BIG race and the "whispers" of an all time GREAT are being heard..Than he loses 2 out of his next 3 starts and finishes his career at 6 for 19..And is ranked in the top 50 of all time horses on some racing sites, and even ahead of horses whom had a near impeccable record and a mountain of Grade 1 wins, in very FAST times to boot..Arrogate only ran 10 times..lost 3 of them.only 4 grade 1 wins..lost his last 2..and He will probably be ranked high on the list..Todays racing rankings are "Prisoner of the moment" rankings..and it is ridiculous..Atleast American Pharoahs resume has a legit arguement

IArrogate has been following Chrome's schedule of 2016 by racing in Dubai, then running the same Del Mar races leading up to the BCC. Let's see, Chrome shipped early to Dubai and ran a prep race at Meydan before the 2016 Dubai World Cup. Arrogage in 2017 and Chrome in 2015 both shipped late to Dubai with no prep race for the World Cup. The Dubai World Cup was Chrome's last race of 2015 and Arrogate's Dubai World Cup is his last win of 2017. Hmmm . . .
"So are all the horses pointing to the BC training up to it now? Sure seems that way if you listen to the trainers." Said Craig Milkowski (TimeformUS) To answer this question, in order to beat Arrogate, Collected earned the following figures and ratings for the PC: 115 BSF, 133-135 TimeformUS and 127 RPR. Besides Gun Runner, none of the other potential 2017 BCC contenders have ever reached these figures/ratings in their careers.
Unfortunate that these new drug testing protocols weren't in place when the 'GOAT's' ran. Horses today are subject to more scrutiny and testing than any other time in the glorified past when steroids, cocaine, testosterone, and whatever came out of Dr. Harthill's lab was in rampant use. But by all means let's keep them on their pedestals with selective if not totally blind acceptance and boast about how objective we are. https://psmag.com/social-justice/derby-win-horse-racings-doping-addiction-80640#.ix2jbzekp

Ran another great race today.
I knew he could do it, great job Collected! He kind of reminds of Game on Dude.

I think he'll find himself center stage of the division again after the Travers.
