Just thinking out loud. But is it just me or has anyone else thought about it. This now is 2 years in a row that Hollendorfer has had a 3yo Filly who would of bee 3/5 or less in the Kentucky Oaks. For the 2nd time in a row, neither will get the chance to run.
is it me or does anyone else notices that gun runner and other horses legs seems to be moving so much faster that Arrogate's yet he is drawing away?? it really is that amazing stride!
Fayeq runs in the 6th race at Gulfstream on Saturday.
Makes American debut on Saturday at Gulfstream for Jimmy Jerkens.
Great breeze today!
Win the Triple Crown, every race in record time...Hands down greatness ! If we had the classics that Arrogate won.....in the 70's Secretariat wins them !!

  • CauseForConcern · But, he did break the record at Saratoga for a mile and a quarter, beating Secretariat's son, General Assembly's record, in the time of 1:59.2, the same time as Secretariat in the Kentucky Derby. But I never would compare the two, that one being better than the other. The best thing I would guess, is that they're both "In A League Of Their Own". · 2 hours ago
Is it just me, or do others seem to get the impression that over the years, the horses are getting frailer and frailer? More and more three year olds seem to be dropping out due to injury, even though compared to years ago, they typically race less today at this point in their careers than they did back then. I am no breeding or genetics expert, but I wonder if we are relying on too few sires these days. Secretariat's syndication was for 32 mares/year, and with those outside the syndication, he was typically bred to 50-55 a year. Top stallions now are bred to far more than that today. Every time you turn around, a top prospect is out with an injury. Sure, they have to be careful due to breeding potential, but that was true 40 years ago as well.
British trainer John Gosden, one of the truly great trainers in the sport, had high praise for Arrogate's performance in the G1 Dubai World Cup after witnessing it in person at Meydan on Saturday. Gosden said: "It was extraordinary the way he overcame his difficulties. He's a beautiful horse with a lovely head on him. I've never seen a dirt horse with an action like that. He has an incredible stretch, and like all great athletes seems to have all the time in the world. Nothing is rushed about him. He's really like a long striding turf horse on dirt, which is most unusual. He does everything with such ease, which is quite unique, and he really topped off a great evening."
I still have not lost confidence in my boy. Hopefully they corrected what went wrong in NOLA and have this boy on track. Public has soured on him since his last race. Don't worry folks,after he wins the Wood. His bandwagon will grow by leaps and bounds.
Makes US debut Saturday in the Orchid at Gulfstream for Bill Mott.

After 2 puzzling efforts, hopefully Dortmund can get back on the right track Saturday.
Many folks just don't give Arrogate the credit he deserve and many of these same folks have lost playing against him!! Even the trainer gave him exceptionally high praises and I respect that, because he has proven himself time and time again how well he can train top notch horse. I think some people don't understand that most times horse takes a while to develop and some times get setbacks for different reasons. Sometimes some horse never made it back from setbacks and we never found out what they could have been,such Danzig! Now we have some very talent young horses like Unique Bella and Mastery who recently had setbacks and will probably miss Triple crown races or never make it back to racing. So what determines that a horse is Great or what makes a horse Great ?...Is it wining all his races, is it wining a Triple Crown, is it beating older horses, is it wining the most purse money, Is it beating his peers, is it wining on multiple tracks, is it wining on all tracks, it is wining at every distance, is it setting records, is it wining on and of the lead, is it wining on any track condition, Is it wining on every continent, is it running a match race, is it coming back from a setback, is it wining by the widest margins or maybe is it wining at every distance ? What must a horse prove that he is truly Great ? One thing I know for sure, I have had the fortune of seeing and had the gratitude of enjoying some of the Greatest run and I have seen another in Arrogate, because he has come back from setbacks and proven he can be a devastating beast to reckon with !!!
Personality "backed into it" and KOTASHAN? woof that missed the boat
