Arrogate 'the Great' may race 2 or 3 more times before retiring. Next up the Breeders Cup, then The Pegasus, and again back to Dubai. What do you think?
Good luck to Cloud Computing in the Wood Memorial. I think he will win the Wood which will set him up nicely for the KY Derby.
Good luck to Always Dreaming in the Florida Derby. He looks like a special horse to me.
Here's my top 8 with 6 weeks until KY Derby- #1 Always Dreaming. #2 Gunnevera. #3 Classic Empire. #4 McCracken. #5 Tapwrit. #6 J Boys Echo. #7 Cloud Computing # 8 Thunder Snow. In a wide open Derby year, I believe any of my top 8 could wear the roses 馃尮. Looking for a Win or 2nd by Always Dreaming in the Florida Derby. Glad to get him at 42-1 in Kdfw3.

Does anyone know how to send a correction to HRN? Hence broke his maiden 1-16-17 at Oaklawn and it isn't listed.
Tired old fallacious argument. Can't appreciate near perfection? make up FICTION to knock him down. NO evidence of steroids in that monster's blood EVER.
For those who are trying to compare Arrogate to Secretariat, there is no comparison. Arrogate races in an era where steroids are banned. Secretariat did not!!
Correction Trakus data goes to 107 Audubon Road, Bldg 3-10, Wakefield, Mass 01880 according to our tech, D, you can call them there a 617 544 6070 x 324
Very beautiful horse. But of course I am a sucker for "black" horses.
  • Rideonruffian via DisqusI know he's not actually black, just that he's one of the darker bays that sometimes appear to be. 路 6 hours ago

Makes me scratch my head how people are jumping to think that arrogate is the fastest horse of all time. Do people not know their history? Fager, bid, slew, secretariat, ruffian. List goes on and on. Shoot arrogate may not have even been able to beat the dude in the 2014 big cap when he ran a 1:58. I understand the horse is special, I'm a huge fan and the sport is blessed to have him. But let's keep it realistic people. I was a huge fan of Barbaro, pharoah, honor code, chrome, etc. and never called them the fastest horses of all time. Reality check!
How did he sell AP out?

First it was the Rebel and now the Sunland Derby. It's safe to say that an eastcoast trained 3YO will win the KD this year (most likely a Pletcher trained 3 year old).

About Me

Meet Bryan Brinkmeyer 鈥 Chicago, IL


Growing up across the river from the Bluegrass State I was able to spend a lot of summer days at Ellis Park, Henderson, KY. 


Likewise, the first Saturday in May was always a celebrated family event. In 2000, I made my inaugural Kentucky Derby appearance and since, I have made it an annual tradition because there鈥檚 no other city, or weekend, in the racing world like Louisville, KY on Derby Day. 


Although the story of a Kentucky Derby winner is legendary, a champions trail is what The Kentucky Derby Post is all about. The coverage begins when Juvenile season starts and continues until the field is set, the picks are in and the roses are earned.
