Bob Baffert said he won't enter Arrogate in the PWC if he does not think he can win, he feels his horse would have to be as fit as he was going to the Breeder's Cup Classic to have a chance to win. Would he find a prep for Dubai or just keep working this horse. I'm a California Chrome fan who really wants to see these top horse face off again, maybe with Highland Reel thrown in the mix also. Jack Wolf, CEO of the Pegasus World Cup Invitational has reached out to the owners of Austrailian Horse of the Year Winx and is trying to recruit a Japanese horse also.
If Arrogate lost the Pegasus World Cup to California Chrome would you want to see a third race?
Is he still racing?

 (Whoa - it's me - the DARK HORSE)
 
Greetings and welcome to my "dark" blog!  I have been a fan of horse racing since I was about 12 years old.  Growing up in Minnesota, my dad would take me and my brothers to Canterbury Downs and I would practically beg to go every weekend!!  I made my first "big" score there hitting the win, place, and exacta in the same race at age 14 (pulled in $84 with horses named Railroad Red and Racers Dream!).  I even had a poster in my bedroom of Lost Code winning the 1987 St. Paul Derby!
 
While finishing school in Chicago, I spent every possible moment at Arlington Park with my dad.  We took the time to develop computer programs (on the ever popular Lotus 1-2-3 for DOS) to try to find patterns and handicap races more accurately.  My dad taught me a lot about handicapping races, paying particular attention to class moves!

Since then, I have become more involved with horse racing each passing year through a variety of different media-based roles. Once deemed the "second best racing ambassador in Chicago" (hey I've been called worse), 
I now reside in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the USA and will be covering many different aspects of racing - in my unpredictable DARK HORSE STYLE!  
 
My favorite tracks are:
Arlington
Canterbury
Del Mar
Hawthorne
Keeneland
Kentucky Downs

 
Some of my all-time favorite horses include:
