Frosted has a shot and the pp's of Arrogate and CC should help as it may ensure a contested early pace. Nyqvist himself may be sent to the front by O'Neil which may create even more pace, and Melatonin is no turtle in the early going. This horse rallied well at the 1 1/4 in the Kentucky Derby and ran on pretty well in the Belmont at 1 1/2. He came home in 25 and ran a 2:27 and change Belmont himself. Very respectable. He has some excuses in his other 1 1/4 losses. And I would not hold his Woodward hugely against him. He likes more spacing between his races, and if you look at the video of that race a few times it sure looks like it was a pure prep race for this, not an all out effort by the jock or the horse. And the fact they chose not to race him again in early October looks like a smart move to give him more spacing coming into this. And just because a horse comes from behind does not mean that they dislike a very firm fast dirt surface. That's a huge misnomer in the race world. It is all about how the horse gets over the track, and even closers and off pace mudpack types can be horses that appreciate faster and firmer dirt or turf surfaces. Looking at a number of Frosted's past races he sure seems to excel on tracks that are souped up and playing very fast. And he has already put in a very solid work this week over the SA track where he looked like he was just skipping over it. If Arrogate, Chrome, and Melatonin, and even possibly Nyqvist hook up a bit too early, it is not beyond the ability of this horse to sit midpack down the backstretch and inhale them in the stretch if things come apart a bit. Much stranger things have happened and this horse really does seem to enjoy fast firm surfaces like he got in the Whitney and Met Mile. And yes, I know those distances of those two races were short of 1 1/4, but this horse did run on well at 1 1/2 in the Belmont, his Travers loss was very excusable given who he was up against and the fact he did all the dirty work on the front pressing AP for 6F.
Can't wait to see some of his babies drop. I'm expecting white blazes and strong/ powerful in the thorax area in lot of them :)

  • WickedOne via Disqus · Classic Strike + Honor Code should be an interesting one. Classic Strike's filly by Union Rags looks like the real deal right now. · 51 days ago

They better be glad he's not entered in this race
She is the SIXTH choice in the Distaff. 6th!!!! I hope she stays that way to roll out the cash.
She will go to Darby Dan's broodmare farm
Drossemeyer is to remain in Brazil for his breeding life. I will miss him, loved his Classic win
Barbara is a big fat liar
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.
  • rhapsodyqueen via Disqus · I read the SA track was playing deep/heavy with more cushion to it and slower than normal today. Her prior works were quick and she was given the "breezing" tag so I wouldn't worry too much about the slow time. · 19 hours ago
  • Ruffianlover · It all depends on what they were trying to get out of her. Maybe they wanted a slower breeze since she had a blazing work on the 20th · 2 hours ago

I am shocked that stellar wind is not favored over songbird. SW definitely deserves to be the favorite for the year she's had beating beholder twice in really good times. IF songbird wins the distaff, what do you all think the odds will be that she shows up in the Pegasus? At this point besides chrome I don't even know who else is a go for that race and she may run well there at the shorter distance
*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.

  • Dee via Disqus · I love him and agree this would have been the best course of action. It seems that they are determined that he be retired though and that's probably why they're going for the Classic. · 11 hours ago
  • sczen50 · I have thought all along that he should've been entered in the DMile... · 9 hours ago
UGH just a miserable work. Looked awful. I hope this horse doesn't get embarrassed by his connections. He should not be in the Classic
