He wasn't nominated for the Triple Crown, and Stonestreet hasn't mentioned him at all on their records.
I think they're just waiting for Jess's Dream. That match race is the most awaited race in this year. ;)
I think they're just waiting for Cozmic One. That match race is the most awaited race in this year. ;)
I was out to dinner last night wih some friends who enjoy Racing. I enjoy there perspective because they are not Gamblers. They have been following the game for about 20 years or so. They know it inside out. We were discussing the upcoming year and the conversation went to the Older Horse Division.They asked me what my opinion would be if CC or SB won the race this weekend.I told them that it would not change my mind, i think that they are both very good race horses. I added that my opinion would not change if either one of them went to Dubai and won,and then came back home and won many more Stakes. They thought i was being unfair and wanted to know why i did not think that they are Super Horses. My response was based on a recent thread here regarding the 1976 Marlboro Cup. To be considered a Super Horse in my eyes,you need to accomplish things that others don't. CC and SB, or any other horse in todays era has not and will not spot weight. They run at scale weights every time they step on the track. Maybe because i did see the very best at their best i have this mindset. Just like when CC went after the Triple Crown,he rightfully had everyones attention and it was exciting. But the bottom line is that he did not do it. He did what many others did in the past 20 years. He won 2 legs of the Triple Crown. I ask you, where does that separate him from the rest and makes him great. We spoke of SB,and they wanted to know why i do not blow his horn as much as others. They point out that ,if not for an incident at the start.SB just may be undefeated. I posed the question to them,becausethey love him and think he is a super horse. I asked them,what has he done in his 2 years of racing,that separate him from the rest to make him great. CC has accomplished so much more,yet i think he is far from being a Super Horse.Is it really wrong to consider these guys very good horses?

  • Mary Z. · I meant that I lost count of your SB comments. I think maybe you would explode if you even tried to contain these SB thoughts. Add free therapy to the free dating site component of hrn. · 1 hour ago

Sullivan, chestnut Smart Strike. Ran well. Only his third race. Pulled up in his first race.
This horse is the sleeper of the year. Looking to it's name on the map Feb. 1st at Santa Anita.
ZATT's Star of the Week, is ... Conquest Two Step!

Here's a pic of Flower Alley(IHA's sire) in S.Africa: https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/10869570_763635367063363_3242691539806696644_o.jpg
with the timeing of his debut it looks like there gonna give him 1 chance to make the derby. If he dosent break his madein first out I dont see him trying any derby preps cause if he is a late bloomer like his mom why risk it now

  • hannahWTC1 · Poor Coz, so much pressure for him to perform. If he knew how much people are expecting, I doubt he would want to start · 6 days ago
  • papillon · honest question: if cozmic one were just some random bernadini, starting anywhere but saratoga (bernies have a bizarrely consistent affinity for that track), based on his works would you even take someone seriously for considering him as a derby prospect? take it a little farther: based on his works, if he was a random bernadini starting as an unraced colt in a MSW, would you play him? if he can belt out 13's all day long, he's got a shot in the belmont... i say all this rooting for the guy, i'd love nothing more than for him to be the second coming of slew...he's already got the sure-win...maybe if it was orange... · 2 hours ago
Little disappointed. Red had the lead and Kent was pushing him pretty hard and he still got pass by Lord Nelson.
Untapable won for 3 year old filly champion
Top Billing schooled in the Gulfstream paddock this afternoon, meaning his comeback race could come anytime now

  • Sullivan · Just saw his schedule... they're running him back in 3 weeks against the Pharoah. Makes sense why they weren't prepared for today · 2 hours ago
  • SSilence86 via Disqus · I realize that. I've talked to his trainer before. I'm hoping to see this guy at the Risen Star. · 2 hours ago
Take nothing away. 7 furlongs is not near his best distance and the pace wasn't very hot. He showed a lot of maturity and ability in defeat. He'll move forward and be better for it. I love what I saw.
