He walked out of the gate, and still managed to win big. Definitely one to watch on the grass.

The Financial$$$ half(your male partner) better get there act together-lol What a pleasure to view a legend in my ERA.

Will carry the Magnier colors.
If West Coast were trained by any other trainer, he would be 25/1 or higher, even with his last win (and rightly so). As it is I expect he will be 3/4 choice. The Baffert favoritism is strong with this one (Which isn't always a bad thing) But I want no part of WC. I simply don't think he has faced any sort of competition, and running here is a huge step up. Say this crop is weak all you want, but so far they have at least been competitive, and the top horses have all come from outside of California. none of the 'best' Cali horses have been any threat this year, that doesn't speak much for the 2nd tier horses WC has been running against.

  • Mike in SB · Interesting article on the Paulick Report, and I guess the Racing Form, on the changes to the Del Mar surface this year. To compensate for too many injuries last year they made the surface deeper. It is apparently a lot safer, but also slower and tiring. After the long layoff Arrogate might not have been ready to run on the deeper tiring surface. That is what I am hoping anyway, his last race was just too bad to be true, I am looking for a big rebound in the Pacific Classic. But sometimes horses just lose their form and can't get it back, we will find out in the Pacific Classic. · 1 day ago
  • Iwasatthe78Belmont · After Saturday, let's just say we will be debating if there is even a horse worthy of being horse of the year, or whether they should leave the award vacant for 2017. · 8 hours ago
Asked for a selection for the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic, Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens provided one – Arrogate – with a story about a Bob Baffert-trained horse that was an astounding disappointment in the San Diego Handicap but rebounded from it.Read More

Not sure how this horse is 11/1 in Travers futures right now. Seems like great value. I think it's between him and West Coast.
