Breeders Cup 2015

What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Mary's New Hopeful - Guesstimate order of finish - 1. Chrome 2. Found 3. Hoppertunity 4. Frosted 5. Arrogate 6. Shaman Ghost 7. Keen Ice 8. Gun Runner 9. Melatonin 10. Effenix 11. Nyquist 12. Win the Space 13. War Story
Frosted's looking good, should get a piece, and their is no one better than the Chromester in here I'm afraid.
A live longshot, Shaman Ghost can become a third generation Breeders' Cup Classic winner.Read More

  • Blueyedhusky via Disqus · I think Shaman Ghost has a racing style that resembles Awesome Again's. He may not be as good as his granddad, but he's no slouch either. The Brooklyn was his second race after a ten-month layoff, and he may have bounced in the Suburban off of that effort. The Woodward was a tough race, so I think the two-month break was a good idea. I wonder who will ride him. Castellano will stick with Keen Ice; not so much because of the horse, but the trainer. There's plenty of speed in the race, so who knows? Maybe things will set up well for Shaman Ghost. But the race is coming up pretty tough. The 1-2 finishers in the Arc are apparently entering too. He'll be the 7th or 8th choice, probably in the 20-1 range. Great odds for a Queen's Plate/Brooklyn/Woodward winner. · 13 hours ago
  • cugel the clever · Chrome and Arrogate are, in my opinion, the clear favourites. But there isn't much separating the next six horses, including Shaman Ghost. Wouldn't surprise me to see him anywhere from 3rd to 8th. · 1 hour ago

From the AtTheRaces.com web-site: Trainer Aidan O'Brien has confirmed that first preference for Arc heroine Found at this year's Breeders Cup will be in the Breeders Cup Classic. Highland Reel was also included in the 14-strong pre-entry for this year's Classic, but O'Brien said to no surprise that he'll likely run in the Breeders Cup Turf instead. I assume the pre-entry of Highland Reel into the Classic field is just to give Coolmore an extra "standby" option in the race should something unforeseen go wrong to where Found wasn't able to contest the race.
  • BeastBob via Disqus · The forecast says that there will be a lot of rains over this weekend. If the rains continue into next week, I won't be surprised to see both of them in the BC Classic (the ground condition will be firm-turf like because of the high clay content at SA unlike the high sand content of Keeneland last year). · 1 day ago

A full field of fourteen, including the favorite Flintshire, are expected in the Breeders' Cup Turf.Read More
i think Arrogate will post a 109.1 going 6 furlong's and win by 5 3/4 in any race he enters and at any distance you pick at 6 furlong's an UP --- I post for this for the Horse Arrogate and for no one else----------> I AM TOUGH
Barbara is a big fat liar
*Unpopular opinion alert* Nyquist doesn't have a prayer in the Classic. They should skip and go to the Cigar Mile. Retiring him would be foolish (as long as he's healthy) and he should continue on through a 4 year old campaign where he doesn't race further than a mile. I want to see this horse do well again, and I truly think that success will come at shorter distances.

  • Dee via Disqus · I love him and agree this would have been the best course of action. It seems that they are determined that he be retired though and that's probably why they're going for the Classic. · 8 hours ago
  • sczen50 · I have thought all along that he should've been entered in the DMile... · 6 hours ago
I think it's a poor decision for Found to run in this race. Not that she doesn't have potential- she has a good chance of breaking 4th- but no better than that. She should run in her comfort zone in a worthy enough purse to go after.
  • Blueyedhusky via Disqus · Why? So many European horses have performed outstandingly in the BCC; including his own Giant’s Causeway. She already won the BC Turf last year, why not go after a bigger prize this year? She's good enough if she can handle the dirt. · 8 hours ago
I watched Sunday work a month or two ago. She was a bit off. The impression I got during and after her last race was that she looked body sore. I was hoping that Surprise would do well. She had wonderful temperament and crew at Harris Farms really thought she was special.

  • BeastBob via Disqus · In all her starts, she seemed to be reluctant to go between horses out of the gate which probably led to her being a little slow early in the race. · 5 days ago
  • SarahAieden via Disqus · Perhaps a different environment might suit this filly better. Par Antonsen had high hopes for this girl. Perhaps she's just missing her good friends at Harris and a visit home may perk her up. · 8 hours ago

  • Ruffianlover · I will be rooting for Union Ragg's babies- preferably Union Strike. She beat a stellar field in the Debutante and she came home in a hand ride pulling away with her ears pricked. Runs like her daddy and just get going late. I think she'll like the added distance, just hope she's in shape. · 10 hours ago

Chrome's work today was phenomenal, he's raring to go! Rider never asked for a single step!
In advance of a second attempt at the Breeders' Cup Classic, California Chrome turned in his final workout before the big race, nine days from today. The six-furlong move, at his home base of Los Alamitos, went in 1:12.20, and left his connections happy and confident that the all-time leading earner...Read More
  • Ruffianlover · Couldn't be looking any better. TVG analysts were raving about how good the workout was. I just hope a clean and safe trip for all and that we get to see one heck of a race · 10 hours ago
Very weird workout. Jockeys had no clue what they were doing. Some people are saying Nyquist doesn't want to play the game anymore. If that is the case, it's his connections fault.
American Pharoah’s final fraction in last year’s BCC was 24.60. California Chrome's was 24.44 2016 Pacific Classic. There is an excellent chance that he will be able to duplicate that, maybe even beat it with Arrogate and him closing for home. We might finally see Chrome fully cranked...scary. It is going to be something else if Arrogate shows up to the party with his dancing shoes.

Is the Pegasus World Cup off the tables now for Frosted?
Is there weight limits, If so what are they and does( Found (being a Filly) get a break
  • Stay Thirsty via Disqus · I think fillies have 3 pounds less. · 13 hours ago
  • Blueyedhusky via Disqus · She'll carry 123 lbs (3 lbs less). Not sure what you mean by weight limits? · 13 hours ago
I don't know about a complete pace meltdown in the Classic, but with Frosted possibly re-challenging Chrome in the last quarter like he did to Pharaoh at the Spa, Arrogate trying his hand at press/pace against top company, etc, he does have a chance to hit the board. I want this horse to show me some of his 3-year-old promise, but he just seems to be a good horse up here and a great horse in lesser company. He is my emotional pick that stays in the mix, in combination with great horses. Once again, Frosted would be an Eclipse award top pick in any year other than Pharaohs, but he's run well but hard this summer, so the up-and-comers may prove him tired. May leave an opening for War Story's tactical abilities? We shall see in a week!
  • imisswilltakecharge · Side Note: If you happen to venture into Fred's Inn in Norwich, NY, the bartender Robert STILL, after many a lost dollar, will stand by this horse like a blind love. I think I can't leave him off my tickets in case he is ever finally right; I may be drinking somewhere else!!! · 13 hours ago
  • Blueyedhusky via Disqus · Win? Not a chance in hell. The best he can hope for is not finishing last. But even that will be a challenge. · 13 hours ago
2 for 2. Looks like a good horse for the future.
