"Winning trainer Christophe Clement: 'Chrome created a wonderful thing''"Groundhog Day at the Belmont Stakes. Another Kentucky Derby-Preakness champ shot down one race short of the Triple Crown. Another heavy favorite exposed by the myth of inevitability. Another spoiler. "There's nothing negative," trainer Christophe Clement said after his horse, Tonalist, at 9-1 odds, ruined what so many thought would be the first Triple Crown completed in 36 years, leaving California Chrome in fourth place Saturday in the Belmont Stakes.Thirteen consecutive times -- counting I'll Have Another's scratch two years ago -- a Derby-Preakness winner has not won the Belmont. And the repeating story becomes one of unfulfilled expectations.Not to Clement. And not for racing in general, he insisted."California Chrome created a wonderful thing," Clement said. "Five-thirty in the mornings, 500 or 600 people came to see him train. That was great. It was wonderful to see the large crowds [Saturday]. But it's nothing negative." Cristope Clement, trainer of Tonalist/Nice to see a positive perspective from such an esteemed trainer./http://www.newsday.com/sports/horseracing/winning-trainer-christophe-clement-chrome-created-a-wonderful-thing-1.8372793
  • CauseForConcern · It was good to see Christophe Clement accomplish this big victory. He was always one of my favorite trainers. His victory kind of reminds me of Graham Motion winning the Derby with Animal Kingdom. Another good trainer that finally got his due. · 99 days ago
On BH, it sounded like Clemente wanted to put him on Turf, saying "We'll keep him on dirt a little longer". Does anyone have news on that?

  • EP Taylor · His dam ran on turf. Why not?. Clement is a solid turf trainer. · 101 days ago
Like I said, I love his eyes... https://www.facebook.com/tonalistccstable/photos/a.1461885147386640.1073741829.1461768270731661/1462515567323598/?type=1&theater

First thing I ever noticed about this guy was how big he was.... https://twitter.com/BH_CNovak/status/473905326987935744/photo/1
I found this pic, and found it funny. Poor Tonalist. https://www.facebook.com/#!/OffThePace/photos/a.242142115808213.59321.226330650722693/743540979001655/?type=1&theater
This horse will win the Breeder Cup.Had him in the Belmont. California C, should had step up and I like the jocky change on TONALIST
I thought it was a great race, and just happen to bet on the Jockey!!
Two things. A) I'm going to eat crow. I was one of the people who said this guy could not get the distance. I completely threw this guy out. I was wrong so many times yese=terday, I have no problem admitting it. Luckily, a couple scores let me only lose $70. but, that's beside the point. I turned the NBC Broadcast off with much respect for Tonalist. I'm standing up here, saying I was 100% wrong about him and he deservedly won the Belmont. Congratulations to him, his connections. They all did a marvelous job. Congrats to anyone who had him(not me!!! he ruined my super!) and espceially Silence who has been touting this guy for ever. Palace Malice II :). B) I feel bad for him and his connections. His fabulous run is being overshadowed by Coburn's classless comments and Chrome's excuses. I like Chrome and his connections (besides Coburn, of course) but he did not deserve to win this race. Tonalist deserved to win, he ran a great race, and he won it fair and square. I have a lot of respect for Tonalist now, and I'm now a fan of his. Mainly because I doubted him and he proved me wrong, so I have respect for him.

  • Buckpasser · While I didn't care for his comments after the Belmont, I have no problem with his comments concerning Churchill Downs. After their deplorable treatment of Ron Turcotte, the lack of cooperation they gave to Normandy Invasion's owners in trying to bring WWII vets to the track for the Derby, their actions concerning the conditions at Fairgrounds which caused the LA legislature to actually call for maintenance improvements at the track or to revoke their license. Churchill Downs deserves the criticism. As to the nasal strip issue, if you reread the statement from the NYRA, they wanted Sherman to make the appeal on the strips so that they could review their entire policy. · 104 days ago
Goal is the Travers. Probably prep for it in the Jim Dandy.
Well no distance limitations for this son of Tapit. Congrats on the win. I just really wanted to see CC win. On to next year.

  • RichChatter · I was also a naysayer on Tonalist. But all congratulations to him. I'm still down on CC's loss, but you have to appreciate a winner where it's due. · 104 days ago
Belmont ia all about breeding, Tonalist has the same sire as Chromr9 Tapit)but has pleasant Colony in the Dam-distance - diatance

  • buckpasser · Pulpit sired both Lucky Pulpit the sire of CC and also Tapit the sire of Tonalist. Both CC and Tonalist have Buckpasser prominently in the dam side. Tonalist has Toll Booth by Buckpasser who was the dam of Plugged Nickel. CC has Numbered Account who was the dam of Private Account. · 104 days ago
  • Sullivan · Pleasant Colony bothered me, Tapit usually doesn't have classic 3yos because they aren't developed · 104 days ago
Who said that my guy couldn't get 1 1/2?? Congrats to this horse. I've been with him since his first out- 5 races back, where he ran a good 4th. Love him. That being said- I still love Chrome. He got pinned early, and had a lot left to do. He was a bit tired. This race does not define him. I look forward to seeing him come back with a vengeance after a nice rest. Still a lot of races left in the year.
