Majestic Quality is a scratch. She did not ship to FG. Wicked Lick may be a sneaky play with all this rain. I still think Farrell romps here.
I love this horse. Mike Smith is one of the greatest jockeys.
  • dvdlucs · Maybe its me, but you honestly believe Mike Smith ranks along Laffit Pincay, Bill Shoemaker, Cordero, Stevens and so on!! He's not even close. · 1 hour ago
Which stallion was she breed to? Im assuming it was one of their own at coolmore
Wow TV is truly against the praises to Arrogate. Listen all, please do NOT ever mention Arrogate's name with "Great" since he'll need to race for years, carry high weights and break records with difficulty to even be called one, which in this ERA of Breed over racing, is virtually, impossible.

  • Ferrisjso26 · Calling him great's okay that word means different things to different people, comparing him to the top 10 or so of all time is just super rude and disrespectful. Comparing him to Secretariat or Citation earns one a special place in horse racing hell. · 1 hour ago
Good luck to teresa. Friend of your brothers Mike All the best!
"To commemorate Man o War's centennial, and also a reflection of this discussion below, the perpetual moving goalpost" Comparing Arrogate to the 'greats' that raced decades ago is not sacrilege, but it is rather incongruous. For those who say Arrogate cannot be mentioned in the same breath as say, Man o War: Racing history extends far longer than 100 years. Did Man o War prove himself in over 30 four-mile heats like Boston, who ran 4 mile match races up to 4 times in a single afternoon? Did he he carry 160+ pounds like the 19th century champions? Did he win 89 of 138 starts over a 9 year career like Kingston? Did he set the world record time over 4 miles like Lexington? See how difficult it is to compare horses that raced decades apart from each other? Few remember the 19th century champions today, but surely during Man o War's career there were cynics who exclaimed, "Today's thoroughbreds can't hold up to those of yesteryear. Man o War a great horse? Laughable! Now Boston, Lexington, those were true greats!" It's the perpetually moving goalpost. There is no 'greatest' ever, no 'top 10', or 'top 50' - these lists are nothing but extraneous mental masturbation. But just like Boston towered over his contemporaries in his day, like Man o War towered over his contemporaries in his day, Arrogate is towering over his contemporaries today.

  • Goblin · An excellent, solid post in its entirety; but your last paragraph is a masterfully written piece of prose conveying depth of understanding as well as anything I've ever seen on this blogsite. I've long thought of the list-making compulsions often displayed here as being an exercise in expressing superficial knowledge only. Thanks so much. · 4 hours ago
  • Sullivan · While there were definitely those who thought that Colin or Domino were more deserving of the GOAT title, I don't know if I can see completely eye to eye on your position of lists. I think the lists serve the important function of making sure that earlier horses are not forgotten. Any discussion here that incites the creation lists is bound to end up with at least one horse being mentioned that was forgotten. Horse racing has one of the strongest connections to history out of any sport, and with such short careers and such an emphasis on individual talent, I think the harm of lists is being exaggerated. A good point in the end though: we can only judge these horses based on what they did and could do. · 3 hours ago
Arrogate ran his worst race in stakes competition at the DWC, still drew off to win by 3+. Is he the greatest of all time, of course not. Is he the best in the game right now, without a doubt yes. What he did in the DWC was something true champions can only do. AP never had to do it because he was always on the lead or stalked the pace. Is Arrogate better than AP, I don't know. However, the discussion is more than entertaining.

Still nothing on the Pharoah foal :(
Still awaiting news on her 2017 Bernardini foal...
Is injured and off the derby trail per DRF.
Sending PJ to the Bluegrass makes zero sense esp with the Wood coming up so weak. This makes about as much sense as sending Battalion Runner to the FL Derby with the Santa Anita Derby being so a weak field.
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · At first I thought the same thing. But the connections are probably thinking, get out of Florida now as Brown's stock starts to disperse back up to NY. If he's good enough to run well at Keeneland then its a short trip over to Churchill Downs to train for the Derby. Cuts down on the shipping as opposed to shipping him to NY where if he runs well they have to ship him back down to Kentucky. The field looks tougher for the Blue Grass then other preps but that could also keep the field size down where it would be advantageous to the top contenders that only need to run well enough to get some points and move them forward to CD. · 1 day ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · How can you say the Wood is weak You have One Liner who spanked around everyone at Oaklawn. You have the Motion horse who threw in a lemon,but before that spanked around everything at GP. Then you have probably the best of them all in Mo Town. · 3 hours ago

When does the hype does not deliver in the thoroughbred? ALL the time. Ogygian comes to mind ...All the time "this one is the second coming of ____________" take your pick of the greats and they just AREN'T. Talkin' Man, Melair, Vigors, Arazi, Roving Boy, Uncle Mo, Johannesburg, Favorite Trick, Dehere, Gilded Time, Tasso, Capote..even some very good ones that just did not stay around long enough for proper comparison Ipi Tombi, Nashwan, Swale, Stevie Wonderboy, Shegar, (sadly) Lost in the Fog was almost there ..It takes not only quality of performance but some persistence if you want the word GREAT and your name following it. ANd no one has included the very very good Japanese horses. Quality if not limited to one geographic venue or decade, it just IS what it is, superiority of effort over TIME.
  • By The Numbers via Disqus · If you cannot tell the difference between Uncle Mo and Arrogate, maybe this isn't your sport. · 6 hours ago
  • RealDynastyPicks · This is a different era of racing. We will never see another horse like a Spectacular Bid who wins 26 of 30 races or even a Secretariat who wins 16 of 21 and is a Triple Crown winner. Horses today just don't run that much if they have a good pedigree. Look at American Pharoah, 9 for 11 Lifetime, Triple Crown winner, he wasn't around for a long time, but he is a Great in this era of racing. Once in a blue moon you get a horse like California Chrome who doesn't have great breeding but is very good who will run more then 20 races, but that is very rare in racing today. Arrogate right now is 7 for 8 lifetime with 4 Grade 1 wins which include 3 of the richest races in the world, he is a modern day Great. You can't compare apples to oranges which is what you are doing by comparing Arrogate to the Greats that ran 30+ years ago. In this era of racing Arrogate is a Great. · 4 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.

  • Buckpasser via Disqus · You should find the article that Johnny Nerud wrote a few years ago in Bloodhorse. In his opinion, the fact that horses run races less than they ever did is part of the problem. He states that you have stallions who run in a small number of races and then are bred to mares than run less and it shouldn't be a surprise that their offspring run even less. In his article he shows how the number of starts has decreased over the years. I remember horses like Kelso, Buckpasser, etc. who would have a tune up in an allowance before a Saturday Stakes race. Look at several horses like Native Dancer etc. who competed in a race between the Derby and Preakness because the four plus weeks between the Derby and Preakness was too great a time to go without a race. It was not unusual to have two weeks or less ( Carry Back for instance raced almost every week in February as a three year old accounting for three stakes and an allowance) between starts for some horses. Take 1966 with Buckpasser as an example. After he came back in an allowance from his quarter crack on June 4, he then won the Leonard Richards June 18, then the Arlington Classic June 25, then the Chicagoan on July 6, then back to Aqueduct for the Brooklyn on July 23, then back to Arlington for the American Derby on August 6, then to the Travers August 20. He had rest and then came the fall campaign with the Woodward on Oct. 1, the Lawrence Realization on Oct. 19 and finally the JCGC on Oct. 29. It was not unusual to race like this in the past. Most horses then rested after the fall classics in Oct. or November and started back in Jan or Feb. in either CA or Florida. · 20 hours ago
  • Mike in SB · Some people blame the horse saying they are not as sound or strong as horses in the past. I don't believe that is true, in my opinion the problem is in how they are raced and trained. I think there are two big problems in racing today, the first is the universal use of Lasix. If you intentionally dehydrate a horse then ask it for maximum effort then it will require more time to recover. The second is the desire for a fresh horse so trainers want 5-6 weeks between races. In the old days you rarely heard a trainer talking about a fresh horse in those days they wanted a fit horse. Both these things result in fewer starts and in my opinion it is just very difficult to get a horse in race fitness with just gallops and short works. I have been around horses for 30 years and am convinced that an unfit horse is more likely to be injured. If horses today were raced without drugs and raced and trained for fitness I believe they would prove to be as sound as horses in the past. · 5 hours ago
what as this one actually DONE? Broke a single track record ALONE on the lead, beat a few good ones in so so time NO weight carrying history, and almost all at a single distance. NO breadth of talent, few remarkable things........Animal like Ruffian tied the track record in her maiden win, Fager destroyed the track records at multiple distances that lasted for years and the adaptability of Forego has not been seen since he retired. Come on now, all this hype like the clones you are: clueless. And these BIG closing moves are as they always HAVE BEEN, on dirt, optical illusions. When the rest of the field is backing up bigtime, relativity makes your sustained moved look far better than it is.

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 !!!
