What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

I do not understand why the 3 year old went to Arrogate instead of Nyquist. Nyquist had a better record.
The Eclipse Awards never fail to bring about some memorable moments, and naturally, last night was no different.Read More

  • Mike in SB · I love European racing, I was lucky enough to see the Derby (Reference Point, Steve Cauthen), Irish Derby (Old Vic, Cauthen) and the King George at Ascot (Teenoso, Piggot) but have never made it to the Royal Meet at Ascot. I expect you will have a great time, I think I can speak for all HRN readers when I say we would all like to see the pictures of you with a top hat. · 19 hours ago

I post Arrogate's time for the Pegasus may hit 146.76 just a guess anyway

Let's put things into perspective for a moment shall we? At the age Arrogate is now CC had already won 8 stakes/graded stakes races. That is more races than arrogate has run total

  • mdreynolds · No surprises here, just goes to show what a magnificent year 2016 was. Delighted Taylor was able to get a few words in.........thought someone else had taken over...... (P.M.). Lookng forward to next Saturday. Praying for a clean trip for everyone and may the best horse win! · 13 hours ago
  • nu-fan via Disqus · A big congratulations to all of the winners! All were deserving but I recognize that some may be a bit disheartened if their favorite didn't win. But, that's life! Not everyone, all of the time, wins at everything. Time to move on. A super big congratulations to California Chrome and all of his connections. They, too deserve this award for all of the hard work, big decisions, and great care that they have given to allow Chrome to continue racing and dominating the racing world at age five. · 10 hours ago
Let us be very clear here...all this talk about Chrome been great is just media hype! California Chrome is not a great horse, he is very good and running well but not a great horse or legend. When it comes to winning excellent G1 races he fails against the big guns...for example he got beat in G1 races by Tamarando, Tonalist, Bayern, Prince Bishop, and Arrogate ...not to mention Shared Belief in G2. Has far as I am concern the only great G1 horse he beat was the female Beholder. The other horses that he beat was mediocre, such as Mubtaahij and Opportunity. Now when it comes to Arrogate...well it took him some time to develop into the great horse he is and he has clearly demonstrated it when he step up to run against excellent G1 caliber thoroughbreds. He not only beat quality G1 horses...he did it in extraordinary time with exceptional beyer speed figure! So who do you say is great now ...surly you are not looking at the amount of races a horse wins...Good luck in your wagering !!

  • sczen50 · I never have or ever will compare or look at earnings of a horse! That's just ridiculous..it's all relative!~ Beyers? I don't go by them either..never have proved anything. There's other better speed factors. They don't ever take into account how wide the horse went or how he won. Or track conditions;or which track itself. Who is Great now? Not Arrogate & not Chrome but he's closer. By the way you have your facts wrong..yes Chromie lost to SB but also beat him out,too. Lost to some of the horses you named at 2..bad 2 yr old year-quite a few have had that. And he lost to Bayern while still injured-after that injury-yes he was better but still. He didn't beat anybody good? Arro did,huh? LOL!!! You haven't kept up w/ his record huh...many consider Songbird pretty good and Beholder very very good! He smoked Beholder & some others. Anyway... no-neither are great! That's who's great now...but Both are very good! That's already been proven. · 1 day ago
  • Christy Dolan via Disqus · Not to mention the English horse Toast of New York fairing better than him in the Classic .Yikes ! His loss in Dubai 2015 against nothing horses damaged his reputation a bit. Prince Bishop? An ex turf horse ,oh lord. Last year ,for the first time in years the Dubai WC had credible American horses in it. Cc did revive his reputation in tje manner that he won,and being out for so long was impressive. Takes a brave man to state what you said. I agree the hype has been nauseating at times,especially claims from people who were not even born about comparisons to other horses. But his story has been good to follow · 11 hours ago
I'm a big fan of Arrogate, and if the race were being run at the classic distance of 10f my money would be on him to win the Pegasus too. But, since they've opted to run this race at 9f instead of 10f, I'm afraid that favors Chrome more than it favors Arrogate, because he clearly has more speed on the front end. If you look back at the replay of this year's BC Classic, it was a monster effort by Arrogate to defeat Chrome that day at Santa Anita. But Arrogate also needed every inch of that 10f distance to do it. Hypothetically speaking, if the BC Classic were ran at 9f instead of 10f, Chrome romps home the clear winner that day. I'm afraid the shorter trip is in Chrome's favor in my very humble opinion.

  • slewcrew7778 · This seems like a common misconception that many people have. I agree with a recent Brisnet article which stated - "No two races are necessarily run alike and the way the Pegasus World Cup unfolds could in part be determined by the post draw for both protagonists as well as the other 10 horses in the field. However, much of California Chrome’s appeal from the betting public’s perspective will obviously be based on what they witnessed through the first nine furlongs of the Breeders’ Cup Classic. The first 1 1/8 miles of the Classic saw California Chrome at the height of his powers, running freely and comparably to his displays in the Pacific Classic (G1) and Awesome Again (G1), both of which turned out to be emphatic victories. With a furlong to go in the 10-furlong test, California Chrome was still ahead of Arrogate by 1 1/2 lengths and appeared unlikely to be run down...there’s still enough reasons to believe Arrogate is the better horse and will prove so again on the opposite side of the country, even at the shorter distance." Neither Baffert of Smith is concerned about Arrogate's speed, and for good reason. He's shown plenty of early speed before. And he can catch Chrome at Chrome's top speed at any point in the race even if he gets off a step or two slower. · 17 hours ago
  • Christy Dolan via Disqus · For a betting perspective this is a race one would be better off not punting. Due to the draw, Arrogate had to travel more yards than CC and had a nice weight allowance for a 3 year old. Arrogate seems to be more of a galloper with stamina but a nice cruising pace. Not sure he has a turn of foot like CC. Think one might have to question the quality of the other three year olds this year ,even the Kentucky Derby winner who was a champion at 2. Chrome gassed out and maybe idled well before the line at the BC. Smith was canny,he never really asked Arrogate any hard question until he was right up with CC and change the whip to his right. By then CC 's jockey was already hard at work. What CC has in his advatage tactics wise is things will be done a little differently next time . Have to say 9 furlongs (or nine and a half) is pure idotic stuff for any global group 1 race that wants to be taken seriously.why 9? The track? If so ,go to San Antia with it · 12 hours ago
2017! Mastery is my Kentucky Derby pick. Baffert has a way; lightly raced, well placed usually a little late to bloom. Just has the touch especially with colts. And can we agree that the California colts have been outstanding past few years?
BREAKING NEWS: Ralis is out of the Pegasus World Cup. Doug O'Neill announces that he wasn't happy with his last work and will run him instead in the Cal Cup Turf Classic next Saturday. Stablemate Semper Fortis will take over the spot.

First reported foal. A filly. Not sure who the mare is.
Is he the first Baffert's trained horse to sire 2 or more American juvenile champions?
As an exercise rider over 60 years ago, Art Sherman came to Gulfstream Park in a train with Swaps. The California Comet set a track and world record for the mile and 70 in the Broward Handicap. Now the 79 year old trainer is back at the same track, with a chance to see the finest horse he has trained, and one of the two best he has worked with, go out in style. Arrogate may win by daylight. Keen Ice may pull off the impossible and do it again. I'd like to see the two favorites blazing down the stretch, nose to nose, with the elder winning by inches. It would be another Beholder moment for the sport, and earn the two time Horse of the Year a colossal win in his last race. Most of all, I would like to see a victory for Art, who's biggest thrill as a jockey was when he beat his idol Eddie Arcaro. Alan Sherman, Raul Rodriguez and Dihigi Gladney have done nice work in keeping this six year old in good form. Hoping to see a safe trip for all, and a big smile from Victor Espinoza at the end.
