Damn this girl is in a league of her own. She is just something words cannot describe. Wow. Looked in the eye and answered with a resounding NO
Another sunday gallop for the 9 for 9 champ!
  • sully · they keep saying she was challenged for the first time...she was eased at the wire again :/ · 4 minutes ago
What test? Isn't that what Chrome was supposed to do yesterday?
9 for 9 and still unchallenged, untested and undefeated! Can any filly run with her!? No! Turned away the second best filly pulling away at the wire and hand ridden home. Unbelievable!!
The CCA Oaks is Mike's to lose. Songbird can sit off Carina Mia if Julien decides to send, or gallop around there on the lead if they let him. The result should be no different no matter what the others do.

Late to the party but great job Dortmund!!! Ran like a champ even in defeat. Here is a video of Dortmund after the race in great spirits via Emilie Fojan, his breeder. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1022546094467384&id=100001360092341&__tn__=%2As
hmmm, i love songbird but something tells me this might set up for weep no more, especially since songbird is use to costing the last furlong or so, if smith just lets her coast the last part of the race they might be in for a huge surprise with weep no more flying down the stretch, Like i said i doubt it but i can see this happening.
Another break down at Del Mar in race 2. The #4 horse. No update yet
I really like this horse, but please drop him down to an MSW/allowance or cheap stake to break his maiden and give him confidence.

He may be headed to the Haskell. Whoa. That is certainly an audible called by Shadwell. "Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin is leaning toward sending Mohaymen, who was favored over Nyquist in the Florida Derby in what was a battle of unbeaten at Gulfstream Park. It would certainly add a level of intrigue if Mohayman were to make his first start since finishing fourth in the Kentucky Derby." http://www.app.com/story/sports/horses/2016/07/14/haskell-nyquist-giants-killers/87033832/ 5 furlongs 1:00.79 4/24 4 furlongs 48.87 6/22 4 furlongs 47.60 1/6 It seems like he is rounding into form.

  • triplechrome · Late foal so maybe showing great improvement. I also remember seeing a post several weeks leading into the KD that Mohaymen looked like he had lost weight down in Fla. · 1 day ago
  • Ferrisjso26 · This doesn't make sense to me. Horse is unbeaten against horses in races with horses not named Nyquist. Why send him to face off against Nyquist and Gun Runner when they could rack up a more likely win in the Jim Dandy? Maybe things have changed in the last five days because he's listed as probable for the Jim Dandy. · 1 hour ago
Dortmund got a 119 equibase figure, 110 beyer figure and a 133 timeformus figure, all career highs in his first race off an 8 month layoff and his first race as a 4yo. That's insane.
Entered in R8 at Woodbine post time 2 minutes... very short field. He looked great in PP. Kaigun / Halo Nation
Personally I hope they target the Woodward Stakes followed by the Awesome Again Stakes as a prep for the BC Classic. Don't like the idea of throwing Dortmund into the lion's den again going 10F in only his 2nd race of the year. Hope they bring him back slower and build him up for his best in the Classic. Baffert is taking Arrogate to the Travers so he could take Dortmund too for the Woodward on the same card. It's still a prestigious G1 but at a shorter distance plus gives him an extra week or so to fully recover from his huge effect.

i believe in u horsey
Songbird easy. I don't even know if it's worth watching the race. I love this horse and hate her at the same time. An amazing talent, but I like the sport for competition, and there is none when she races.
This race could be an excellent race if it gets a field of 10. The Jim Dandy has always been my 2nd favorite Grade 2 race (Suburban Handicap) but this could be the finest edition. Here's a mind blower : how about GOVERNOR MALIBU for the win?? Creator not this time even though he paid huge for me in the Belmont. Destin and Mohaymen are certainly wonderful horses and My Man Sam could hit the board as well.
According to Baffert, Dortmund was only 95%. This and the fact Dortmund surged back and passed CC after the wire(they switched leads several times) IMO implies two things. Dortmund probably would have won if he was 100%(it still would have been incredibly close) and that Dortmund wasn't tired(which seeing that time is a very positive sign especially seeing his distance concerns which are real but not completely validated) Both horses impressed(they obliterated the rest of the tiny field) and the margin between the two is close at 8.5. The Pacific will come down to whether Dortmund really has distance issues. Either way if Beholder proves the Pacific Classic was a fluke both will probably be defeated from what they've demonstrated at 10(CC should be the second choice)
For the love of God will some admin on this site please fix chrome's page? So comments will show up on the main page? Also I saw Dortmund got a 110 beyer anyone know what Chrome got?
