Why do they space his races out so much? Is Arrogate the kind of horse that runs better with time between his races, or are his connections only interested in the most prestigious G1s? If we're going to call this horse the Man O' War of our time, I would like the opportunity to see him more than a few times a year (assuming that his connections are simply being picky; if it is because he does better on a longer break, then it's understandable).
I really can't get over Cloud Computing winning the Preakness race...I use him in the exotics because he was one of the highest wet track ratings but winning...no way!! I was totally humiliated with AD losing so badly !! Nevertheless, I must accept things like this happen in horse racing...so I will rise again with another learning curb :(
Why is he not going in the SA Gold Cup?
After news of his retirement was made public, trainer Freddie Head in speaking to various members of the racing media called Solow, "perhaps the best horse I've ever trained." I'd say that's high praise indeed coming from a man that also trained the brilliant filly Goldikova to 14 Grade/Group 1 successes during her incredible career.

Not sure if he's ready for the Belmont, but he's a speed galloper who should continue to improve into a very nice horse. He's a big guy and was going very well in the Peter Pan but Ortiz got schooled by JJ when Ortiz went very wide into the lane trying to carry the other horse out, but JJ cut back inside to go on for the win. Another nice Shackleford that can carry his speed and Ortiz won't make the same mistake. He's a nice one now that will only get better.
Motion confirmed today that No Mo Dough will point towards the Jim Dandy.
Deserves another shot in the Belmont.
"Classic Empire" claims his 4th G1 race on 10th June. You heard it here first folks! :-)
Per DRF, #BelmontStakes a possibility for Irish War Cry.
Per Bob Baffert, Collected will not run in the Gold Cup. Did not think his recent work was an "A" work.
Happy Birthday (slightly belated) to Thunder Gulch as he becomes a 25 y/o pensioner! He and stablemate Serena's Song accomplished exceptional 3 y/o seasons travelling and winning stakes races coast to coast and in Kentucky throughout 1995. During his career he won races from 6f. to 1 1/2 mi.; fractured a fore cannon bone in the '95 JCGC and still managed to finish the race, running 5th. He subsequently had surgery and never ran again. I hope this photo of him in his paddock at Ashford/Coolmore yesterday links properly. https://twitter.com/coolmoreamerica/status/867100287701577730
