Of the "name" horses that have been injured and put to the shelf......almost all come from the West Coast: Mastery, Sircat Sally, Iliad, Champagne Room, and Royal Mo. Only Not This Time did not train out West.
She has already won a stake, but hopefully she'll get a graded win soon.
Well done.
Sustained a fracture in her leg during the running of the San Clemente and was vanned off. She will have it surgically repaired & she will be retired per owner Joe Turner.
Ran huge today and interesting again moving forward. She was still coming which makes me think she will handle the distance. However I think sitting her until the Cotillion may be the right play, where if she wins, she would have a right to be in the starting gate for the Distaff. Just think she could use that time in between and Tasman does not figure to be at Parx (although Unique Bella does). I'll take my chances with against the horse that has not shipped and will be coming off a long lay-off (maybe she gets a race before).
That should pretty much win the 3 year old Filly Eclipse Award. Never say never. I bet that Baffert brings her to the Alabama to get 10F into her. And then sits her until the Distaff. And what a potential race that could be. Stellar Wind. Songbird. Vale Dori. Forever Unbridled. Terra Promessa. Abel Tasman. Unique Bella. Would say all of those are "likely starters".
Finally broke the maiden.
Ran well today.
  • Mary Y. · had I been able to keep track of him during the whole race, he would have won, aided by scream. Why? Because really, do you--i don't--enjoy a 3 times raced, 5 year old, that gets more press, or he did, than horses with careers and hard-earned graded stakes wins. And, I'd like for the poor big rich kid to get a nice retirement. I think after one win, he will get to go out. · 1 hour ago
Finished 3rd in her trial run. Form reads well. She looked good!
I think Arrogate will bounce back and win his next race easily (while going off as a 1-5 favorite). But there is one disturbing pattern from watching Arrogate's last 5 races. He broke well from the outside post or PP1 when there weren't much traffic next to him (the travers, he had the AF's shield. And the PWC, the #2 horse dropped back immediately leaving a lot of space from him to settle in). In the DWC and the SD Handicap, he broke from a middle post and was pushed back. It seemed that he's afraid going in between horses when they were all rushing out of the gate.
Three win bets in a row! Thank you Abel Tasman! $$$$$$$$$$$
Another photo of Chrome in Chile. This one is from Martin Racing's Facebook page. Looks as though everything went well! https://www.facebook.com/MartinRacingUS/photos/pb.195726933779277.-2207520000.1500853408./1597977016887588/?type=3&theater
Won race 8 at Gulfstream Park today, 7/23/17, breaking her maiden in her second start. Paid $32.20.
Barely held on but a win is a win! That move on the backstretch was great. Mike rode her beautifully, and she showed another dimension by not just having to deep close. Congrats to Mike, Bob and the connections on three year old filly of the year!
I wonder if today is 'it'? The test to decide his future. If he shows interest, they keep him on the track. If not, it's time to retire him. Coz really doesn't seem as though he likes track life. It's not the end of the world, most racehorses aren't superstars.
Career best numbers for Accelerate in the San Diego Handicap, 109 BSF and 118 RPR. Based on Arrogate's progressing (or regressing) numbers over his last 4 races (Travers-136RPR, BCC-136RPR, PWC-131 RPR, DWC-130RPR) and the face that Accelerate was given 9 pound allowance, it would have been a very close race. If Arrogate had fired and run up to his recent winning form, he might have won by about 1 to 1.5 lengths.
Half sister to Holy Helena debuts Saturday at Ellis Park.
Is Saratoga running slow times? First race I have seen on the dirt there.1.39 mile and out in 1:51 and change. .Looked like A.T. was giving the lead to Elate-late..But Mikey came down 2 lanes to cut that off..Guess he did what he had to do..Guess that's why he is the jock that he is..Didn't see Baffert there did he make it there? If so any comment on Arrogate?
Only one more race and she wins the Triple Tiara!
I hope yesterday's race helps people appreciate Pharoah. On his worst day he never quit and barely lost the Travers. Say what you will about how fast Arrogate is at his best, but Pharoah never would've run that way. His consistency is something to be marveled at.
