Toasting with Andrew Champagne

Outside of Arrogate/Chrome, the horse with the biggest upside IMO is Neolithic. In some freak scenario where Arrogate/Chrome don't fire, he is the only horse I can see winning. I also think he's the best shot to fill the trifecta as well. It's early, but I will go cold trifecta Arrogate/Chrome/Neolithic.
In two races, he barely finished ahead of maidens.
WONDERFUL story in NYT about GG's connections! https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/17/nyregion/on-a-day-for-king-a-rare-victory-in-the-sport-of-kings.html?smprod=nytcore-iphone&smid=nytcore-iphone-share&_r=0
sig bouncer the clown ? the fool ? no an utter moron of the highest order
One thought that comes to mind is that Godolphin Racing definitely should've retired Frosted after the Pegasus, this is his ideal distance in which he generally runs well although he was a disappointment at the BBC, I definitely think at this distance he'd have come in the money and possibly would've been the spoiler and run a time similar to his win in the Met...
Big storms coming in this weekend, Bob. Maybe you should have shipped early, but given your propensity to ship back and forth and back and forth across the country, I guess there is some reason you want a horse in your SA barn for as long as possible.

Watching Shared Belief run down California Chrome in the San Antonio will never get old. RIP Champ!
Tonalist's first foal born this afternoon at Lane's End! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/178057f0ca816a8f2fe847e7e812c6d3d2b6f04f1c1bdd439d47f251e01344fe.jpg

Jess's Dream has been retired. He's standing at Ocala Stud in Florida. Neither of Zenyatta's boys look to be worth a damn on the track. Hope one of them races soon and gets a win. She's expecting a Medaglia D'Oro foal this time round. Hope she gets a winner this time.
Is this true that Cozmic One has been retired and going to Ocala? Has someone a confirm? I hope he will be better sire than racehorse.
First foal. A filly out of the mare Pastel Princess.
Arrogate, Keen Ice, Chrome, Shaman Ghost is my early prediction in that order. Followed by Neolithic, Eragon, Breaking Lucky, Noble Bird, Prayer for Relief, War Story, War Envoy, then Ralis last.
Dortmund worked today at Los Al; his first official work since 10/30/16. Equibase has the work at 3f., on dirt, in 36.60, 10/17. BH has an article as well. http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/219133/dortmund-drills-for-sherman-at-los-al
I have not seen the splits for Chrome's last work anywhere...and this was all I could come up with... 24.51, 1:00.72, 1:13.20
maybe we can just focus on arrogate
