Dortmund ran his eyes out. I love this huge guy!
Just another beautiful win.
Another superb win, definately one of my horses to root for in the TC series and elsewhere.
CC probably just sealed Horse of the Year. He also proved he is better than Dortmund at 9. The time wasn't for Del Mar but he did wire the field so that matters a little less to me. CC fans deserve to be happy and I'll admit I was wrong about him(I will not admit he's better than Frosted though until he beats him at the BCC though), I just hope they don't overdo it with the disrespectful AP comparisons again. This win was not an all time great performance, it was just a texbook win, nothing to really critique it for either, but the horse proved nothing except that he's better than Dortmund(at all distances) and it'd be best to keep the win in context.
"If horses could talk California Chrome would look over at Dortmund going down the backstretch and say, ...REALLY!!!..." -- Jeff Seigal
It's really too bad Pharoah didn't stick around because it's going to take a legend to beat Chrome. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b22856d231fb0b73c057ea7ff5429a8c0f0c8a458bb4266144520dbc3555c90e.jpg
RIP, Materiality. Very underrated horse. Started his career 3-0 and the only two losses of his career were to AP. The Derby sixth place was actually pretty good, he was gaining on the leaders even faster than Frosted and in the Belmont he just couldn't get 12 furlongs which no horse should be blamed for. RIP my friend, this saddens me greatly.
Just beyond words, walked across the finish line. What a horse.
No shame dortmund ran great but it's safe to say California chrome is just too good for him...wow! Love you dort there will be no chrome next year then you can shine;)
"California Chrome has put together a career that in total is more impressive than American Pharoah’s..... A strong case can be made that he, not American Pharoah, is the horse of the decade so far...Because he came up short at the Belmont, California Chrome may never receive the adulation American Pharoah earned. But for close watchers of the thoroughbred game, his accomplishments are second to none." http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/01/sports/horse-racing/california-chrome-santa-anita-horse-of-the-year.html?_r=0

  • Buckpasser via Disqus · Good article. Always happy to see The NY Times write something nice about racing. I remember when they covered it with headlines even on the front page and not just for Secretariat · 37 minutes ago
  • Julie Davis via Disqus · What is so impressive about Chrome is how he is still racing at 5 and doing it so well. It is hard to compare the two for that very reason. American Pharoah retired at three, but for what he accomplished during those years, I think he was quite impressive and it would be hard to put anyone ahead of him. · 36 minutes ago
HOLY CRAP!!! Does he think he's Seattle Slew or what!!?? lol I don't care what Anybody says..some of you out there..he could've done that way faster! A second at least!!! He was up by 4-5 at one point..pulled up in that last 1/16th very hard..the last 1/4 he was just galloping!! Espinoza stands up in the saddle at the end! lol Like w/ Slew in that Belmont. Unreal!!!!!! Letting Dorty get to within two... he definitely slowed him down!~ Is he ready for Arrogate? I say yes! He's been ready--this was a good time and wining that easily..a Slew or Sec or Man O' War-type finish being eased up and a decent time. Is he as good as them? No..but I'll bet he'd give them a race. Face it....he's really frk'n good!!!!
Damn, that was impressive. Arrogate is all that stands between him and having the greatest 5-year old campaign of all time (move over Cigar). I suspect that performance was so impressive that he has HOTY now, regardless of the Classic.
  • sczen50 · Well Kelso's Forego's Armed's & Exterminator's were pretty good--though they were all geldings. · 38 minutes ago
Just won horse of the year!
CHROME!!!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!
Just too good, just too talented, just too special, California Chrome is simply sensational!! Amazing!!
That was easy!!!
If you're in the Frosted camp, you saw Chrome, you saw Runhappy......, you get where I'm going.
Dortmund ran really well but California Chrome... jeeze! Hope to see Dortmund in the Dirt Mile.
Woohoo Chrome! Congratulations again!
Lol. It's cute that people actually thought Dortmond might be competition.
