Chrome is the Rodney Dangerfield of thoroughbreds right now. Destroys a stacked field with ease and still gets no respect.

  • Dan K via Disqus · I think Chrome is the best horse going. Who's not giving him his props? The BC Classic is gonna be interesting with Frosted and some of our 3 year olds. · 6 days ago
  • sczen50 · Nahh it wasn't a stacked field but a very good duo he ran against! I'll say that much~ But I hear what you're saying. · 2 hours ago
Hey you guys...any one out there... is she still slated for only the Distaff? And is Beholder still headed for the Classic? Does anyone know?? But who's all going in the Awesome Again?? Besides Chromie & Dortmund? and Is Melatonin going in that one does anyone know..??

Second place to American Cleopatra in her debut - nothing to be ashamed about :) So excited that Union Rags' offspring are finally racing!
She will go undefeated this year. Next year she will race with the boys at least for a few races one more year for sure.
Does anyone know what her connections are planning to do after this year? I'm hoping that she races another year or two, but I'm afriad that they'll feel she's accomplished "enough", and retire her after this year is over.
future tripple crown winner maybe
Nyquist is overrated, and a sprinter, managed to appear as if he was more than an average colt who just barely won the Derby. Propaganda can only work so long as the results support the objective. His connections had a nice horse, but didn't know when to manage expectations. Great horses don't finish 3rd and 4th after being hailed as the second coming of Secretariat. I prefer to follow real talent, not flashes in the pan. Compare this colt with Arrogate. Nyquist is not in his league.

  • Mr. Lonely via Disqus · Wow actually the fact that even WON the derby is most impressive considering the fact that he was setting crazy fast fractions most horses cant even bare and win with, and he still had more gas in the tank to win, also setting the fastest derby in 13 years · 1 day ago
  • MaiyaDay via Disqus · "Compare this colt with Arrogate" Every 3YO since the 1970's pales in comparison to Arrogate. That includes others Travers winners like Bernardini, Medaglia d'Oro, Point Given, and Holy Bull. If that's the company you're throwing him up there with, you have him pretty high indeed. How's that "real talent" working out for you? Mohaymen, Gun Runner, Suddenbreakingnews... all doing real well this year. · 4 hours ago
I don't think Nyquist is a bad horse or overhyped... I believe he's just on the wrong end of his connections' ideas of what he can / can not do. First off, to whatever person claimed he was a sprinter, you couldn't be more wrong. You don't 'accidentally' win at 1-1/16 (twice), 1-1/18, 1-1/4 and finish a trying 3rd while tiring at a 1-3/16. But back to my point, why the Reddam's or Doug O'Neill feel the need to press the horse on the lead is super confusing to me. He can obviously rate and doesn't need the lead, yet in his last two races they sent him out and ultimately burnt him out. Add to that his last two races have been absolute mud pits. He may not completely dislike the surface, but it obviously doesn't help him. I'm excited to see his PA Derby performance and could tell us a lot about his future plans

Finished well despite a troubled trip in her debut. This one looks like the 2016 Del Mar Debutante winner!
8/31: The Frankel half-brother to Swiss Spirit and Swiss Dream is set to make his debut in the 2nd race @Haydock tomorrow!
If anyone saw this article (http://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/solow-unlikely-to-start-this-year/) from August 16th, then you'd know there'd been discussion of Solow not starting. Pierre-Yves Bureau pretty much confirmed that Solow will not race again for 2016 and will be aimed at the Dubai Turf in 2017. He'll likely start back in training with Freddie Head again in mid-October: http://www.equidia.fr/live/solow-ne-sera-pas-revu-en-2016/
Does anyone know of the mares he was bred to this season?
Even though Swipe may not be the horse that he used to be, we can still hope that Nyquist and Swipe will meet again.
