  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · very easy breeze. glad to see him back · 1 day 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 · 1 hour ago
Didn't win by the best of margins, but still very promising.
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.
That was too easy, lol
Nice win for her today. She looks to have improved as she's settled into racing in the USA. Could be one that improves further next year
This horse deserves more respect.
That looked catastrophic in the first at Del Mar :(
Big field. No Brakes & Goodtimehadbyall look interesting
He's still the best, he travelled like a DREAM in the Classic, he cantered all over his rivals and had 'Arrogate' in BIG TROUBLE, just a shame that 'Arrogate' found a 2nd wind in the last 30 yards or so to grab a 'last grasp' victory!! If and when they meet again, California Chrome will get his revenge, 100%. :-)
