This horse will WIN the Woodward and get revenge on Moreno.
I think they should bring over "Kingman" for the Breeders Cup Mile, he would DESTROY Wise Dan.
OMG!Is he really going to the BC Dirt Mile!That would be awesome!!
Great decision to skip the Travers for the King's Bishop......Best in the field......Hope the odds don't go to low......
Why do people love this horse? He will never win a race away from Gulfstream.
Love you Red!<3
  • supercool666 · You seriously need to GIVE UP on this horse, he is no good in Top level races and will NEVER win a G1. He is entered next in the BC Dirt Mile, and he has got NO CHANCE in that, with Bayern and Goldencents in the race!!! · 3 hours ago
Bayern "The WINNER of the BC Dirt Mile", and there is NOTHING that Goldencents can do about it!
Why do I always mix him and golden ticket up? Nice win by him today
Just heard that Princess of Sylmar has recovered from the thumps and will soon be on her way to Belmont to prep for the Beldame.
Looking forward to seeing you back on the track working and running races Samraat!! He has run some great races in his career so far!
Great race Stopshoppingdebbie!!!! Would love to see her go up against some some top filly's like Untapable and Close Hatches!!!

He's no Favorite Trick but give this guy a look in for a tag in the nightcap @ Saratoga tomorrow.
TRAKUS FACTS FROM SUNDAY: Pacific Classic winner Shared Belief and third place finisher Imperative ran the same final quarter, timed in 24.84 seconds.The early pace set by Obviously in the Del Mar Mile took its toll in the final quarter. The heavily-backed favorite finished fourth and ran his final two furlongs in 24.70 seconds.Winner Tom’s Tribute came home in 23.86 seconds while second placer Rock Me Baby was home fastest in 23.69 seconds. Fifth place finisher Tigah had the fastest final furlong in 11.86 seconds.First time starter Conquest Panthera rallied from off a slow pace and won easily, running the final quarter in 23.52 seconds and a final eighth in 11.91 seconds.
wins a non graded stakes race and now he's the next mucho macho man?
  • Paladin · Who called him the next MMM? I do like his chances in the Super Derby. Should like that long stretch at La Downs. · 15 hours ago
Actually, Shared Belief may be joining the Champ, California Chrome, at PA Derby. I don't like that track, it is not as well cared for and scares me. I would not race there if I had a top horse, would be afraid of injuries. We had 1 horse race there and win, but he was a tiny claimer who appeared to like it there. It is a tall order for CC to enter a Grade 2 race across country 1st off an injury layoff. May God be with him.
  • travel_vic · What evidence do you have for that being a NOT well cared for track? · 15 hours ago
  • Goblin · I'd like to see/hear the reasons for declaring the track "not as well cared for" as well. · 15 hours ago

Actually, shared belief was injured before the triple crown and it's preps. So we will never know how'd he'd do vs chrome and what he's accomplished. It's up to what shared belief will do from here on out
  • https://www.facebook.com/p.dav · really. he's not injured now. why did he DODGE the races up at Saratoga? most of his resume is garbage. how hard it is to stay undefeated when you've been mostly running against, mr ed, my little pony, trigger, hee haw and the likes?? · 16 hours ago
