Honor Code looks spectacular at Lanes End. This was from back in July
Arrogate will finish out of the money in the classic. and all this fantasy fairytale fan foolishness will fade like the sunset. California Chrome is the clear cut favorite because he is superior to Arrogate and rest of the field. Arrogate is a pretender not a contender. after Arrogate flops in the classic im sure this forum will be filled with desperate excuses. but the only legit excuse he will have is that he was just outrun by much better horses and a superior horse in california chrome. after the classic this forum will be heartbroken. cause Arrogate doesnt belong in the classic and it will be proven. but im looking forward to all the desperate lame excuses on this forum after the classic is over and Arrogate doesnt even finish in the money
  • ChessChamp · Still jealous that we made money on a horse you missed out on? How many accounts will you have by the time the BCC rolls around...874? · 10 hours ago
In the Penn Derby, Nyquist will have his best chance of staying out of the Orb's Kentucky Derby Winners Club! If he doesn't win it, expect him to skip the BC Classic, and likely be pointed to the G1 Malibu.
The track was likely "juiced" for the occasion, and all I can say that in 50 years of following racing, I cannot recall a horse who was the pace setter for most of the race and cut rapid early fractions like he did, and finish the last quarter in 23 and change. It just doesn't happen, no matter how good the horse is. DRF's book of all time greats has race charts. Find me a race chart for 1 1/4 with a last quarter that fast after fractions like he set. Mike Smith even remarked that he had trouble gearing him down. And all he had won before were optional claimers and a maiden race. Was the horse also juiced? When they run like that out of nowhere, one has to wonder.
He's now had three works since returning to Pletcher's barn; on 8/12, 8/19, and 8/27. Last work on Saratoga dirt training track, 4f. in 49.56, 7/26, on 8/27/16.
GREAT FIRST EFFORT!
i understand you guys are very excited by this horse. but we have comments in this forum section about spectacular bid better watch out cause Arrogate might break his world record. this forum is speaking more about than just his last race. its speaking about this horse might be the best horse of all time. and comments saying they can only see ONE result in the classic, and that is Arrogate winning. so again, even if california chrome is proven more than Arrogate it should not matter, because Arrogate is just a superior horse. so according to this forum the right odds on Arrogate should be 1-9. so only the Arrogate fans think this way about this horse? cause last i checked california chrome was still the favorite to win the classic. are all the bettors/people that arent Arrogate fans just morons? according to this site Arrogate is at "least" 5 times better than secretariat. so according to this site Arrogate should be 1-9 and win by at least 30 lengths. but why is chrome the favorite?
The last time Exaggerator raced in California, it rained. His odds will be really good in the BCC. If healthy, I'm 100% sure he will be in the 2016 BCC since it's already pre-paid for him.
When is red tea next running and where?
Steve Asmussen announces that 2016 Belmont Stakes winner Creator will be given an extended break now and leaves for WinStar Farm in Kentucky. It is expected he will not run again this year and will return as a four year old.
I see on BloodHorse that Mohaymen has been sent to his farm for the remainder of the year. No BCC for him.
Kentucky newscast has reported that Maria Borell has still not turned herself in to face charges and they have reported that Borell may have left the country. She has not been seen since July and she is reportedly no where in site.
ZATT's Star of the Week, is ... Arrogate!
little trivia Even though the weekends marquee race flopped for EXAGERATOR AND CONNECT Curlin actually had 6 winners a stakes winner on turf and a second place in a grade 1 stakes .Overall a pretty good weekend making his progency for 2016 just 25k short of 8 million
i really really like this colt Two seconds in two big races validates his worth. I will never not like Exagerator but this colt moves right up the ladder and im on his band wagon
The crazy thing is when you look at Arrogate's Trakus numbers from the race: 1/4: 39.2mph, 1/2: 38.3mph, 3/4: 37.9mph, 1mi: 36.9mph, 1 1/4: 38.2mph!!!! You look at that final quarter and think it's a mistake. I've never seen a horse run that fast a final quarter in a race even close to 1 1/4 miles, even 1 1/8 miles! When this horse was asked in the final quarter, he exploded. Usually it's a mirage and the other horses are just de-accelerating at a faster rate than the leader, but in this case he was actually getting faster. Unbelievable. For those that will compare, Chrome's Pacific Classic MPH: (39.1, 38.0, 38.1, 37.3, 37.2).
  • steevo · just took the 7/2 on offer for the classic doubled on harzand 5/1 for the arc along with a few others lol · 14 hours ago
The Awesome Again Stakes should shape up, if all goes right and all the horses we hope race in it do, though this kind of necessary confluence of luck seems to never achieve fruition, as the single best horse race of the whole year leading up to the Breeder's Cup and it's many events (ahead of even the Pacific Classic). I'm crossing my fingers for picture-perfect health for all potential competitors (as well as all horses whether racing or not), a nice, clean forecast and dry surface to race on and a thriller of a race with one of the deepest fields we've seen in any race in a long time, including previous BCCs.
having said that, his times at SA were very fast too. so maybe we are looking at a real freak in this horse. he certainly gets you excited.
10-0 baby, 10-0, woo hoo, yeahhhhhh!!!! Who's next??? Bring on ANY filly and mare, Songbird will beat you all. I really like Beholder, but that old girl won't be able to stop "Superstar Songbird". :-)
Curlin's Fox will make her 2016 debut this Thursday at Del Mar. Race 7.
