This horse is awesome, he should just stay here in the US knocking off 300-500k G1 turf races
I think tepin might be best. I llove dortmund too. Lets see how he improve next time out.
Beholder will run in the classic whether chrome beats her or not, she write up there with the boys, songbird should be happy winning the distaff, (jury still out in my opinion whos better), but i totally agree she has room to improve. Id say its pretty even as far as 3 yr olds go. Not sure if Nygist, Exaggerator, Gun Runner, Creator, Destin or Song Bird is the best. But if i had to put all my money on one of them become a super horse, id put it on Song Bird.
I think this article has a poor title. No offense to carina mia, but i think her breeders cup win might have been her biggest challenge. Just sayin'
1st off 22 feet is nothing, 2nd 5 lbs does make a small difference, small but a little effect at the end. I would say that Baffert had Dortmund in better shape than Chrome when he came back. Baffert new he had a great measuring stick to see just how good Dort can be, and he answred, big time. Both horses A+ performances. hope Beholder is game latter this year.
The only way Songbird has anyone within 2 lengths is if she turns out to be a very poor shipper. I doubt this will be the case. And your crazy if you pick an upset winner at 6-5 or 2-1. Give me 4-1, 5-1 on Carina and then you might get my money
Well @ MIKE Stache, you did post it! If you take out a pencil and do the, math the real numbers are,
Chrome 38.47 MPH
Dortmund 38.32 MPH
Assuming TRAKUS got the distances correct...
Numbers mean a lot in this game, so one should be sure to pass around correct numbers thats all.
An outstanding race by both horses. Makes me wonder if Chrome is the best out there and Dortmund can improve his 2nd or 3rd race back... that puts Dortmund right were he wants to be first week in November.
or "Z" coming from behind. Unbelievable!"
Mike if your going to throw out stats make sure they are accurate. You might want to recalclate the MPH.
