tomorrow nyquist does his last workout
*Unpopular opinion alert* Nyquist doesn't have a prayer in the Classic. They should skip and go to the Cigar Mile. Retiring him would be foolish (as long as he's healthy) and he should continue on through a 4 year old campaign where he doesn't race further than a mile. I want to see this horse do well again, and I truly think that success will come at shorter distances.
RIP Sad to here news like this especially at such a young age
My favorite all time horse and even today I follow his bloodlines
Google 'Arrogate Horse workout' for more info and youtube video
From Paulick Report...
Travers winner Arrogate impressed onlookers once again Tuesday morning when he worked in company with stablemate and fellow G1-winner Mor Spirit at Santa Anita. The Daily Racing Form timed Arrogate's workout in 1:10.95 for six furlongs. Equibase has the time officially as 1:11.20. As he did last week, Arrogate continued to gallop past six furlongs; Mike Welsch of the DRF timed him completing seven furlongs in 1:24 and galloping out a mile in 1:37.10. Rafael Bejarano was aboard for the work. Arrogate continued to gallop around the track to the sixteenth pole before being pulled up. “He's got some serious lungs,” trainer Bob Baffert told the Form afterwards. “His heart, the way it must pump out blood, must be something.” “He went off a little quick today,” Baffert said, “but I wanted him closer to the other horse. “He can turn it on and shut it off whenever you want, which is a big plus.”
Below clip from Bloodhorse...
The tone on the other end of Garrett O'Rourke's phone the morning of Oct. 25 told him all he needed to know about the status of Juddmonte Farms' Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) contender Arrogate. "I've already spoken to (trainer) Bob (Baffert) and he was tickled pink," the manager of Prince Khalid Abdullah's operation said. "He joked about throwing the keys to the Ferrari to (jockey) Mike Smith and saying 'It's all yours now'. It's nice to hear that everything is...very, very smooth."
Is the Pegasus World Cup off the tables now for Frosted?
Since a few days before last years juvenile this pic of a young Nyquist has been my home page on my phone. If this is his swan song, I say thanks for the memories🐴♥️ https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/672dc522dbf165b0f417c665560e62b5599100e7542a48889d74a27431ab50d9.jpg
  • Pebbles via Disqus · I was fortunate to see him race in person 4 times. And I count myself very fortunate to have been able to see him that much with him based out West. A class act. · 1 hour ago
Guess no breeders cupfor her :(
Iron Fist is my key pick here. Liked his last in the Ack Ack and seems primed at a distance he's won the WV Derby before.
What's up with Songbird work? She usually fires a bullet. Today she finished 5 furlongs in 1:01 26/74...and this is her last work? Interestingly, if Beholder's 59 1/5 were clocked instead of six furlongs she would have had the 3rd fastest time... Her final work before the Cotillion was 47.60 which is a nice sharp work. This is one of the slowest works I have ever seen for her. Here are her final works for her other races post illness: Alabama 47.49 Coaching Club American Oaks 1:11.40 Summertime Oaks 1:25 4/5s It just seems like her final works have been much faster.
Obviously cannot be left out, he will strip a lot fitter than his 'City Of Hope' run when he was rusty and coming off a 4 month layoff, and still finishing a close up 3rd. Obviously will have anything between a 3 length to 7 length lead entering the Santa Anita stretch and he is GUARANTEED to be in the Top 3 at the wire, and hopefully the winner, he deserves it, he's still as good as ever at the age of 8. :-)
Apparently she died on the track after a workout at SA, possible heart attack. :( R.I.P.
Is she not going to the breederscup ?
Kiaran has also announced that Mubtaahij is no longer under BC consideration. Will soon begin quarantine for a return to Dubai to Micheal De Kock.

  • Pebbles via Disqus · Too bad. I really thought the off track affected him. I think the climate and condition of the track at Santa Anita really would have been to his liking. He performed strongly on a dry, fast track in North America this year always moving forward in each race. His 4th place finish was not indicative of his class at all. We all saw what he could do in the Suburban and Belmont Stakes over the Belmont track and he finished a head behind Shaman Ghost in the Woodward. Stretching out I am certain he finishes ahead of Shaman Ghost. I am very, very sad about this. He deserves the chance. How many horses have finished as close to California Chrome at 10 furlongs this year? Beholder, Frosted, Dortmund, Mshawish, Hoppertunity, Keen Ice, etc. could not. But he did. · 8 days ago
  • kenlau via Disqus · Do you know when he is headed back to Dubai?? · 3 hours ago
Sorry to see Mubtaahij going back to Dubai. I was hoping he would go to Breeder's Cup. Sorry he didn't do better in US. I think he had a few bad rides by his jockey. Just my opinion....
Is American Gal really in consideration for the Juvenile Fillies? That's exciting :)
