It was just announced that the injury was more serious than thought. CC has been retired...As announced on owner's FB page. "Later in the morning Dr. Bob examined him again and viewed the x-rays that were taken, he then consulted with those who we feel are the top people in the world in their field and to our heartbreaking dismay we learned that this in fact was a very complicated sesamoid injury, which unfortunately will retire our young maturing star."
Now that A.P. has committed to this race. I am reading how people are saying that this horse,or that horse should look for better options.Are you kidding me,how can connections duck 1 horse only. If i owned a top grade 3yo, i woild be chomping at the bit to run against a horse of the caliber of A.P. . I would not run and hide fo cover. I would want to be the one that defeated him,i would want to be the one that dissapointed over 60,000 fans in attendance. Nothing personal against the horse or the trainer or even the owners. But the other thing is,this is a G1 race with a Million Dollar purse. Where the hell has the competetive fire in the belly gone to. You should live for oppotunities like this one. Like i said, you must own a top echelon 3yo,the likes of a Dortmund or a Firing Line. Maybe even a healthy Carpe Diem.
If Pletcher and Walden want to regain form, they head north to Saratoga for the Jim Dandy. They should avoid AP until the Classic at Keeneland.
If I did now know better I would think English was your 3rd language
One more month till we see the greatest horse of the twenty first century run!! Interesting to see how many(and which) quality horses decide to challenge AP. AP came out of the TC in better shape then most horses who run all three races and on a two month break I don't see anyone beating AP over 9f. The horse in this crop with the best chance to beat AP over 9 would be Dortmund but he'll probably be in Saratoga for the Jim Dandy.
She's gonna win---AGAIN😛
BREAKING NEWS and now confirmed: Owner Ahmed Zayat has told ESPN that the $1 million Haskell Invitational on Aug. 2 will be the setting for the Triple Crown winner's next race and first start after a historic 5 ½-length triumph in the Belmont Stakes on June 6. "I've decided to do the logical step and run American Pharoah at Monmouth," Zayat said. "I'm trying to create one of the best days racing has ever seen for its fans and one that will also fit the prestige that surrounds American Pharoah. I want it to be a great day for everyone that will celebrate racing." The mile-and-an-eighth Grade 1 stakes for 3-year-olds is a particular favorite of trainer Bob Baffert, who already owns a record seven wins in the Haskell, and will afford the 52-year-old Zayat, a resident of Teaneck, an opportunity to race his prized champion in his home state.

  • Dna0571 · That's great news for you J, I hope you get to watch the champ run in person. Should be a great experience! · 5 hours ago
It's crazy how he ran a faster 1 1/4 mile in the Belmont then he did in the KY Derby!
The strongest betting angle for me is Euro Horses making their debuts in America on the grass. They always do well in espcieally in the barns of Chad Brown and Graham Motion.
I'd probably be pulling for Mylute. Sullivan has been supporting this one for a long while. His time should be now, and a big price would be nice. GL, Sullivan.

Gonna be a good race!!!
One for the thumb...
G1 winner Wicked Strong, most recently 5th in the Met Mile, will try the turf next in the $150,000 Forbidden Apple Stakes on July 11 at Belmont Park. Trainer James Jerkens tells DRF'S David Grening that he is experimenting on turf because he believes WS will like it and hopes he can adapt. Article on DRF
I would dangle this historical nugget out to the connections: ONLY ONE Triple Crown winner also won the Travers.....Tough quadruple but it has a bonus historical notoriety merit badge hanging all over it.
