What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

What unfolded today at Del Mar was a truly shocking upset, as Accelerate romped to an impressive 8 1/2-length victory, while the mighty Arrogate finished at the other end of the field.Read More
  • Justkrispy · This was bound to happen. Horse is probably bored. No turn out after Dubai. Just racing starts and go to track for months. At least Chrome got turned out after his dwc · 25 minutes ago
LOL bloodhorse peeps are savage https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0d75dba6108dce71cf228a43a1e37b9744a0c341dc5a3768e3eb6489dcc2b98b.png
Great horses don't get beat 15 lengths against a field like that unless there is something seriously wrong.
It could just come down to Arrogate having 4 months off and carrying 10 more pounds than the rest of the field. This was a Handicap race which weight carried makes things a little closer between horses. These other horses weren't maiden claimers..they've been running with the big dogs.
I just had someone send this to me and I admit I laughed. Songbird: I'm the champion that everyone thinks ran the worst race against a weak field Arrogate: Hold my beer I'm still giggling.
LOL dang people on bloodhorse are savage https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0d75dba6108dce71cf228a43a1e37b9744a0c341dc5a3768e3eb6489dcc2b98b.png
So-tell me-was this payback for VE 'cause of Chromie? I'll bet it was sweet for him though.
Wins 6 in a row...then boom... Cant even finish ITM. Major show plunge here...1.32M donated for Arrogate to place. Ouch. Major egg laying here.
In the Diana at Saratoga, Lady Eli came up with yet another remarkable performance to find the winner’s circle. Read More
  • Barrmorr · Another amazing performance by a true champion. While this match-up is not likely to happen to me just thinking about it is exciting. Lady Eli vs. Winx. Who wins? · 2 hours ago
I think his 1.40.84 in the San Diego will stand before getting beat for quite some time
Now I like Arrogate alot-no not my favorite as many of you know-but one of them. Yes; I was shocked! & Dangitall!! Really! Almost went w/ Accelerate to win-pulled off the last second literally~ Anyway.. Hey Arro fans!! Accelerate beat him-but he has before-granted in a sprint-so not to much of a fluke really~ & Accelerate ran Big & Well!!~ He's not bad. Same exact thing happened to THE SLEW! Beaten by as many/longer race/VERY fast time!! Right after the Belmont..but he came back coughing & was found to have a Resp. Infection..which led to his almost death.He was retired for the year & they had alot of plans for him. You know the rest.. But ARROGATE-He came back okay! Just a bad day at the office like we all have! lol I think he'll kick butt in the Pacific. I think today we had an "Onion" or "Upset" sighting if you know what I mean. For those of you who don't..Upset beating Man O' War--and Onion beating Secretariat. I mean c'mon-really..Only those guys blew out their rivals each, at other times!
I feel the real winner of today is team Gun Runner.Asmussen is probably mentally doing an little happy jig right now. While it seems as if Arrogate has lost a step or two. Gun Runner has come back just as strong if not better, from Dubai. The BCC is now his to loose, and I honestly don't believe he will, even in California.
Losing (that including losing badly for no particular reason) is part of horse racing. Remember California Chrome in the 2017 Pegasus World Cup?
Never finished off the board in his career.
This result looks like a double dipping setup. Cashing big on this race betting on the pace setting horse. And then betting on Arrogate in the Pacific Classic.
Victor Espinoza was the man today, a fantastic job on Accelerate...will be interesting wondering where Accelerate is placed next, which distance? The run up to the BCC got more exciting, no doubt.
I love Patch!
Even though he lost, Arrogate should still be #1.
You know the guy who bet $800,000 to show is going to have a sleepless night!
Lame excuse and retirement eminent.
