But let us not forget the things that Unbridled's Song passes on to his kids aside from speed. Highly prone to foot injuries. I just hope he comes through with no mishaps.
They did not demote any other male dirt races. Also the Arlington-Washington Futurity was ungraded. This committee's contempt for the sports history and eagerness to dismantle the structure of historical racing is horrifying. Guess what the last G1 race demoted had been before this massacre? The Pimlico Special a race won by 4 TC winners and the ONLY G1 race at 9.5 for older horses!
With all of the retirements, Hoppertunjity could have his pick of races in 2017.
Retired and will stand at Gainsway for $10,000

Cathryn Sophia will he bred to Pioneerof the Nile for a 2018 foal.
I'm so mad that this race wasn't graded for next year. This was a race deserving of a grading. Anyone care to share thier thoughts on this decision?
Im saddened and enraged to report that the Wood Memorial has been downgraded to G2 along with the Blue Grass Stakes. This is an outrage, there were far better choices for demotion!

  • slewcrew7778 · The Wood was a G2 from 1995-2001 when horses like Unbridled's Song, Empire Maker and Tapit won it. Not to mention that Bellamy Road's stakes record was also set during that time. It doesn't mean as much as you think it does. Grades don't make races great. Horses do. · 20 hours ago
  • Buckpasser via Disqus · This shouldn't be too surprising. While a Derby prep race, it hasn't had the top fields that other preps have had and hasn't produced a Derby winner in awhile. Also the graded stakes races were done to conform American stakes races to their European counterparts. And is really a system for breeders. · 5 hours ago
How did Canterbury not get any stakes upgrades? I am seriously angry by this. The Mystic Lake Derby should be Grade 3, but no. What is wrong with us? Anyone have any thoughts? I'm interested in hearing your ideas.
Worked a strong 6f in 1:12 4/5 as he prepares for the Los Al Futurity. Very excited to see him roll this field going 2 turns
I do like Frank Conversation, Blackjackcat and Free Rose. I'll add Camelot Kitten to the mix in the exotics.
Of the six horses with stud fees of 150,000 or higher, 3 of them were Wood starters. Of the 11 horses with fees of 85,000 or higher 4 of them are Wood starters. The only other major preps with stallions in this price range are the Arkansas with 2 and the Santa Anita Derby with 1.
12/1 - 4F work http://www.xbtv.com/video/workout/arrogate-worked-4-furlongs-in-49-00-at-santa-anita-park-on-december-1st-2016/
Next years Triple Crown Winner, it's very likely, especially now that ultra talented "Not This Time" has been retired (I was really gutted about that news by the way). I can definitely see him winning the KD and the Preakness, but I think 'Lookin At Lee' could spoil the party in the Belmont, the further he goes, the better he looks, 'Lookin At Lee' will like 10 furlongs, but he will LOVE 12 furlongs, you wait and see. :-)
I've just watched the BC Turf Sprint again for about the 500th time............ ahhhhhhhhhh it's just WONDERFUL. Well done 'Obviously', very well deserved win. :-)
He's still the best, he travelled like a DREAM in the Classic, he cantered all over his rivals and had 'Arrogate' in BIG TROUBLE, just a shame that 'Arrogate' found a 2nd wind in the last 30 yards or so to grab a 'last grasp' victory!! If and when they meet again, California Chrome will get his revenge, 100%. :-)
Revved Up will take it.
Frank Conversation, Diplodocus, and Blackjack Cat exacta and trifecta box. So 3-4-7 box.
Are his connections coming to the Derby?
I'm gonna miss you, buddy, but I know it's for the best. You're a G1 winner in my book.
Officially retired to Rockridge Stud for $5,000
