Can't wait for the Distaff. Songbird's last race over the SA track was laughably easy. She covered the 8.5 furlongs slightly faster than the previous 2 times beholder has run the same distance at SA. Someone on this board basically stated that Songbird has no chance against Beholder because she has not approached Beholder's personal best times. Not including the Adoration Stakes, Songbird's performances at SA are right on par with Beholder's. I do not know, but I believe Songbird will run much faster at SA this time due to the much better field that she will be running against. Songbird by 7 lengths in 147 flat. Beholder will be chasing shadows. Songbird is on the rise while Beholder is slowing down.

  • Pebbles via Disqus · I never said she had no chance against Beholder. Please read my posts and stop making things up. Someone suggested that a stakes record might be set in the race and I responded that that was unlikely, and if a record was set, it would likely be done by a horse other than Songbird. There is nothing unreasonable about that statement. And I never have suggested that Songbird cannot or will not win the BC Distaff. I have only characterized the level of the challenge that she faces as a tall order. It is. Stellar Wind, Beholder, Cavorting and Curalina are top class horses who have the benefit of running against each other. Blind Luck and Havre De Grace were similarly top class three year old fillies when they entered the BC Distaff in 2010. In fact, both had earned multiple triple digit BSFs heading into the BC Distaff. I was cheering for both of them to win the race and felt that they had an excellent chance, and then Unrivaled Belle who was a good horse, but largely unheralded beat them - they finished 2nd and 3rd. I was there and I remember it very clearly. This was when Life At Ten had her issues pre-race. So when I suggest that the enthusiasm should be tempered I am speaking from experience. :-) · 11 minutes ago
Anyone playing this race?..any thoughts. Also is split race, what are your picks in the earlier race set for 3:30 pm?
Hopefully Dortmund draws inside, looking forward to the race!
Pebbles, you're still here bashing this amazing horse? Trying to cut her accomplishments down. Try giving her the benefit of the doubt, pun intended. Mike Smith has hit this horse exactly once and eases her at the finish of every race. So I don't want to hear about your slow race/fractions crap as compared to Beholder the choke artist who lost at 1-9. Songbird beats any three year old horse in the country, male or female, guaranteed as well as any other female horse of any age. She wins the Distaff, lock city, I'm hoping fools like you will bet Beholder or Stellar Wind so I get something better than even money back for my straight wager. The only horse on the planet that would beat Songbird right now is California Chrome. So next year if Chrome runs at 5 they will square off at sometime probably the Classic as Songbird goes for 20-0.
Barely a field for the Joe Hirsch.

Stewart Elliot will be back aboard American Cleopatra in the G1 Chandelier.
So much for hoof_hearted's 100% guarantee that Almanzor was going to run in the Arc LOL
  • jonquil · Yeah, I think this comes as no surprise to everyone else. They'd been saying the Champion Stakes was their goal for some time now, and the owners pretty much were in agreement. · 23 hours ago
  • hoof_hearted2016 · It's so disappointing, I just don't understand their decision not to run him. Almanzor had a great chance of winning the Arc this year, He's only 3 so he would have got weight allowances, he loves Chantilly and he's in great form, he also looks as if he will be even better at the 12f distance! Europe's Richest Horse Race and they bottled it in my opinion, because of a horse by the name of "Postponed". · 6 hours ago
How will MM handle alot of rain Saturday?
I rather see Frosted in the classic. Bring everything to the table and take on CC. CC is the horse to beat and you never know what Frosted could do. He's shown to run well at 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 distance.
Bob Baffert announces that Dortmund, who has been entered in the G1 Awesome Again, will race with blinkers for the first time. This means we should see a more aggressive Dortmund who should be challenging California Chrome early on.
Colonel John has been sold to stand stud in South Korea for 2017.
he got the #1 post AGAIN!?!??!?? GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
This one looks like the 2016 Chandelier winner!!
Seven entered in the race. Chrome has the rail, Dortmund the 2 hole.
Headed to Keeneland for the Spinster. According to Hollendorfer, they're purposely avoiding Beholder and Stellar Wind. Good choice, imo.
Praise to the connections for not dodging the competition (chrome) in three straight races. Stellar wind too. Both horses could have gone elsewhere to win but I praise them for facing the very best.
  • Aubrey via Disqus · That is true although I wish dortmund was going to the jockey gold cup...either way hopefully it's a real thriller · 16 hours ago
EL HUERFANO... UPSET??? HAHAH
10/1 for the classic 11/4 for the dirt mile
