Baffert: Dubai World Cup favourite Arrogate is the dirt version of Frankel https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/mar/22/dubai-world-cup-favourite-arrogate-dirt-version-of-frankel-bob-baffert DWC Preview https://www.racing.com/news/2017-03-23/dubai-world-cup-preview
i would be looking at the derby with this one, because the group is so weak. Of course it is hollendorfer, who has based his entire career on looking for checks in easy spots. With the lack of a true triple crown contender this year, it looks like this horse could win the derby against the projected field. Would be great for horse racing just to SEE a filly try the derby. I wouldnt run the horse against pharoah or arrogate. I would run the horse in a soft spot like this years derby. The derby is a soft spot with a big check, should be perfect for hollendorfer. Of course he will find some way to avoid any tough spot that might be avoidable. The only thing hollendorfer cant/wont dodge is the breeders cup held in california. Anything else its like lets find a nice soft grade 2 with an inflated purse. Hollendorfer is so bad, bad for horse racing. Unique bella should go in the SA derby. I think its an easy spot this year. If the horse doesnt get it done, off to the oaks (if we are lucky) or more likely a nice soft socal grade 3. Instead the coward and bad horseman hollendorfer will likely go for the SA oaks, then if we're somewhat lucky, the KY oaks, but more likely look forward to seeing unique bella coming to a soft grade 2 at SA or delmar this summer. Its just the hollendorfer way. Good for hollendorfer, good for the owners, bad for horse racing. Thats jerry hollendorfer in a nutshell
I'm stunned this horse has been voted eight. Citations won 16 races and the Triple Crown against Hall of Fame Competition crushing world records (and riding second to countless record breakers). This horse who IMO is the Greatest is constantly overlooks and deserves Man O War's place as the Secretariat of the first half of the 20th century. Breaks my heart to hear announcers mentioning Secretariat and Man O War as the standards for greatness without seldom saying a word about this colt.

  • sczen50 · No--you're close Ferris but for the most part you're right!! I'll explain later. Citation even as Arcaro put it-running on virtually 3 legs at the end. If it wasn't for that injury in '49...who knows?? Ya' know?? I have a few books from back just before Sec ran. They're all comparing him to Man O' War. What got me..after Sec's Triple...you hardly ever heard about Big Cy again. I AGREE! 8 !!!??? ARE THEY OUT OF THEIR MINDS WHOEVER VOTED HIM-8!?? SMH! You should see Eddie Arcaro's list top10 ever!!~ You'd be surprised. No he doesn't have Citation #1 but..he's up there. · 216 days ago

Very sad to see it will be redeveloped.
Interesting article on training methods http://www.thehorse.com/articles/38971/scientists-revisit-historic-exercise-research-in-racehorses?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=welfare-industry&utm_campaign=03-23-2017
Assuming that Baffert doesn't sit on Arrogate for 7 months after the DWC until the Breeders Cup, 'working backwards' from there the Pacific Classic also at Del Mar will be the likeliest prep. But assuming further that Arrogate may once again be kicking down his stall in the 4 1/2 months from the DWC to the PC, I believe the Gold Cup on May 27th could be the race to take that edge off or maybe the Stephen Foster on June 17th. Although I believe Baffert will stay home with him, I'll still hold out a sliver of hope that if he ships it will be to NY for the Met on June 10th instead. Whatever the case, it's hard to believe the end is only 2, maybe 3 races away.
Nominated for the Tattersalls Gpld Cup
UPDATE: For those who don't know (he was assumed to be alive given the information in Wikipedia and other sources), he died in 2012. After contacting McMahon Thoroghbreds of Saratoga this morning, I have updated the date portion on Wikipedia and will be adding more information later and have sent word to American Classic Pedigrees as well.
Tapeta runs essentially the same wet or dry. IF it were the surface

Ihave read that it might be raining on Saturday. I thought that this was a polytrack type surface. If anything,that would be the only so called Elephant in the room. Personally i think this guy can run on rocks or broken glass,but he is not asked to. The synthetic surface for him or anyone else is always a question mark,until they answer it.
