KEEN ICE FOR THE WIN- Huge plot twist!!!!
YEAH! Bonita Bianca splashes home to victory! Another stakes winner for Curlin! Great pedigree and now 2 for 2. Nice!
Nice workout today, Chrome! You're looking good, big boy.
Whooaaa. What an effort. He looks like a future superstar.
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · As expected he was awesome. Could be anything going forward · 1 hour ago
As expected at 1/5 this colt toyed with a maiden race winning easily in 1:09 2/5. Very exciting future for this one
I was analyzing, and came to the conclusion that there is no way CALIFORNIA SUPREME WINNER IS CHROME the Breeders Cup Classic. Please practice for next year to all other horses. California chrome asked who wants to be in the picture in the winner's circle.
As much as I love and respect songbird- stellar wind deserves to be the favorite for the distaff. Stellar wind has put away beholder twice now- which doesn't mean that beholder has lost a step- it just means stellar wind is as good as I thought she was. A lot of people are handing the distaff to songbird but stellar wind is one nice horse. She cannot be overlooked- she ran second in last years edition after a horribly wide trip and questionable contact in the stretch, she has run two great races to beat beholder in very fast times and also proving she has heart and will to win. I think she will be close to the pace to not let songbird get away now that she has proven she isn't a one dimensional deep closer. As much as I love chrome- I am most looking forward to the distaff race out of all in this years breeders cup
In the CA Flag today, came from way back traveling like a freight train at the end. Barely missed Place. Still has some fire as an 8-year-old. Good job.
I like this horse Arrogate, he looked AMAZING in the Travers, but I really hope he flops in the Classic, (A) Because I love California Chrome and I want him to win, he is already a "superstar", but if he wins then he will become a "LEGEND", and (B) I really don't like Bob Baffert, I just don't like him, I don't like his face, he just looks and comes across as so slimy and smarmy, with a touch of arrogance too. Go Chrome GO. :-)

  • Jessica Boyer via Disqus · your a jerk you know that plus Chrome isn't that big of a deal he will never be better than Pharoah who dropped to 4th in the Belmont not Pharoah. Pharoah is a great horse plus to be a grand slam winner. He deffinitely isn't better than Zenyatta or Secretariat or even Rachel Alexandra. when he wins 19 races in a row then you can talk and when he wins a race by 31 lengths you can talk. everything isn't always about Chrome he might lose and I kinda hope he does it is Chrome vs Arrogate and other really good horses he isn't a lock for me. · 1 hour ago
Like I said before Arrogate looks like a nice horse but he's not California Chrome. Here are the splits in each of their last races. CC's splits in the Awesome Again: (1/4) 22.76 (1/2) 46.08 (3/4) 1:09.48 (Mile) 1:34.45 Arrogate's splits in the Travers: (1/4) 23.23 (1/2) 46.84 (3/4) 1:10.85 (Mile) 1:35.52 California chrome has much faster splits and even after Victor Espinosa began holding him back after 6 furlongs California Chrome still ran a mile split one full second faster than Arrogates's mile split. Bob Baffert knows arrogate can't run with the best horse in the world.

  • Ross via Disqus · Love it when people compare race splits for different distances, race tracks and competition. And the difference is not even much!! · 8 hours ago
  • cugel the clever · You are spouting utter nonsense. You cannot compare split times for races run at different distances. The only valid comparison of fractional times between Chrome and Arrogate which is relevant to the Classic is to compare the Travers versus the Pacific Classic. In that comparison, Arrogate comes out significantly on top. Here are the fractional times for each horse from Trakus: Chrome (Pacific Classic): 23.20 47.29 1:11.22 1:35.69 2:00.13 Arrogate (Travers): 23.09 46.84 1:10.74 1:35.56 1:59.25 Arrogate's time was faster than Chrome's at every fraction of the race and he finished almost a second faster (about 5 lengths) on a track which historically has been slower than Del Mar. People who say that Chrome is "faster" than Arrogate are basing their opinion on nothing. That being said, I still pick Chrome to win the Classic because it's probable that Arrogate's Travers was an anomaly (as was Frosted's Met) and that he's unlikely to repeat that effort, especially if pressed early by Chrome or Melatonin. But to say that Chrome is "faster" than Arrogate is completely false. · 6 hours ago
California Chrome + Stellar Wind= Santa Ana Winds
rest easy monarchos, you will be remembered forever
We may have just seen another superstar in the making, that was a devastating performance by Tamit. Filly by Fastnet Rock, don't see alot of those in America, WOW!
Love the connections, IMPRESSIVE turn of foot for a two year old. Defiantly one to watch
The next Tepin? Wow what a performance from this filly. 1st time out for same connections and just looked like a future star in that debut
Excited to see this one's debut in the 5th race. The "word is out" as they say, 4/5 in the ML. Seen a few workouts, he looks to be a good one
Rewatching the 2015 Travers, I think Lezcano did a very good job riding Frosted, but his timing was slightly off. He started the duel at the 6/8 pole. If he had started the duel at the 5/8 pole, Frosted might have won that race by a nose. Fast forward to the 2016 BCC, in order for Frosted to have a chance at the top 3, Joel Rosario will probably have to be aggressive with Frosted early (especially on the SA dirt track).
Id usually take this as as an opportunity to smash on people who disrespect a great horse for no good reason. But think of it like this. Its not the exactly the same as military service members for those who do put their bodies and well being on the line to protect our country, but it is in similar context to be classy and dignified in ones attitude to respect the participants of any thing that people love and participate in. It is so easy from an armchair perspective to issue arrogant, blind, and myopic criticisms, or even to take statistical angles to decipher what horse "Has no chance" versus a horse that is "Dominant". As a fan, or a bettor, or both, it is the parity of differences of horse that make equine competition such a neat thing to love or participate in. Anything can happen in horse racing. Tepin getting beat. Laoban breaking Maiden at graded stakes. Arrogate not being mentioned by ANYONE besides those who follow SoCal Racing, and destroying the Travers. The Breeders Cup races have always been known for things happening that people don't see that goes against what they know of assessing a race. Funny seeing so many who doubted the CALBRED in his three year old campaign swinging on his un-gelded future babies at this moment. Hey, Im happy that the respect finally came after calling him a wash-up after DWC of two years ago. When you have a Championship series of races, you respect ALL participants. And if someone wants to support a horse, it is no ones right to tarnish a horse or a fan, it is an honor that these horses give us such a fun and amazing sport to witness. Whether it is a horse that never wins a Maiden 20, or a horse that has a up and down record at graded stakes, or whether it is the most Dominant of Equine athletes, show respect. When you have the Pinnacle Event where the best of the best are assembled for OUR participation in you respect every and all of these Noble Participants. Because in the end, these Horses don't need us or our opinions. We are lucky to see them in such a way. We are lucky to see these horses, whether YOU think a horse deserves to race in the company of others or not. Thank God this industry is not run by peoples opinions. And thank goodness that despite what people think we get to see such races with such intrigue of talent and dedication. I love Frosted. But in the end. I am happy that ALL of these athletes will be there and only hope to see great races and a safe trip back to their feed buckets after entertaining us. We are getting to see a AWESOME time in thoroughbred racing. Appreciate all of the horses that bless us.
Rest in peace, Monarchos. What a champion you were!
