They should have put AP back in training after his 2016 breeding season was complete.... AP in the Pegasus would have be awesome! Obviously just a pipe dream :-)

This needs updated. He ran last night in Japan.
Didn't win by the best of margins, but still very promising.

where is he now? did he go thru the conquest dispersal sale?
I just realized I didn't enter a comment regarding McCraken. McCraken is my top choice to win the KD. I've been a fan of his for a while now. Prior to his last race, I went back and watch some of Ghostzapper's early races. I see a lot of similarities between father and son. As of today, McCraken and Mastery are my top two projection horses to win the KD. I'm looking forward to seeing his 3yo debut to see if he improves.
It's been a year sweetness since you died. Still miss you and I wonder what the 2016 season would have been like if you had have been here to race as a 5 year old. You will ALWAYS be my favourite horse bar none. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N0Djz1yrec https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQI1sdvT9C0

  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · very easy breeze. glad to see him back · 2 days ago
  • By The Numbers via Disqus · He's such an interesting horse to watch because I can never tell how fast he's going. No matter if he's going :46 or :49, he has that long, relaxed, loping gallop · 17 hours ago
He's back in training and if all goes well will get back on the Derby trail. Hopes to run in a prep in early february.
1999 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Charismatic has arrived at Old Friends in Kentucky!! Looking good champ! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d849cf9681929f50b359ab99843865b44140d5dc6399f0ee1b09e2bb9c5ed8c7.jpg
Running Mate looks like a live longshot. I bet him to win at 55-1 in kdfw1 and boxed him with Classic Empire and the field. He looks to be targeting the Lecomte at the Fair Grounds in his first race for Derby points. Plenty of speed and stamina. His trainer Larry Jones trained Hard Spun who finished 2nd in the KY Derby.
