I think Eragon and Neolithic have a chance at 3rd, 4th, or 5th
horses that will finish in the top six - California Chrome, Arrogate, Keen Ice, Noble Bird (if he runs) Shaman Ghost, and maybe Eragon. Everyone else is just slot filler.
BREAKING NEWS: It's official, Noble Bird fills out Pegasus lineup after deal finalized with Earle Mack per trainer Mark Casse.
Prayer for Relief has not won a Graded Stake since 6/29/2013 when he won the G3 Cornhusker Handicap...Just very very very sad that they are this desperate for horses that the 9 year old has been called off the bench. I hope he doesn't get hurt.
Untouched Talent, dam of Bodemeister, has given birth to a filly by American Pharaoh. Here she is!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/33429e80882886a342a0e63dcc8d122771d4716b4906e91ebcf90a02de69f93b.png
Alright Dabster, going one mile today, got the one race experience Baffert said you needed. Going two turns today, let's see what you got. Good luck today Dabster.
You know, all this Chrome fans say this, and Arrogate fans say that nonsense really is getting old. Can we just comment on the horses, and not people?

  • Bmaster33 · It's just the Chromies who are upset the great Arrogate ran done your little precious, Arrogate fans have no reason to be upset as Arrogate won the BCC · 5 hours ago
I think Semper Fortis had a much better shot then Ralis does in this spot...Ralis might not even finish...
BREAKING NEWS: Ahmad Zayat announces that he has partnered up with Jeffrey Weiss to run 9 year old Prayer for Relief in Pegasus World Cup. The 10th spot has been confirmed for the World Cup, it's Prayer For Relief.
According to Katsumi Yoshida,Gentildonna will be bred to six-time G1 winner Maurice.

I saw a gorgeous chestnut on the farm today, but he had nothing on the stunning Chrome! Looks like someone loves the sand in florida https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4f5ba98a7cf5f0406f0cf1e7cee2a75d9e3bd16d5e6f30521c4bd82699a91894.jpg
Not the most 'attractive' horse but boy does he look regal and imposing https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5b00a557c54b5e9eaae90fe20be95f897c53d6a9af3b52449316b5970266230f.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b629cecc5db9b90e77ae78d5750b1a5f16d2890b60785128889b4c00734eeaf6.jpg
