Curlin doesn’t count he is related to the Messiah. LOL Maybe CUrlin and Zenyatta. HMM
I know this horse is a sentimental favorite, but come on people we are supposed to be the “educated” in this sport. There is no way this horse could make a serious run for the roses. If he is in Kentucky the first weekend in May, it will be on the undercard in a MSW. No horse starts their Derby campaign in Feb.
I wonder what his nitch is going to be. older dirt male is going to be a tough division to make a splash in. hes good and I really like him but Bayern, chrome shared belief, palace malice, lea, tonelist, (tap-anything)... not much room.
It’s not an award for which horse would win a fictitious race. It’s an award for the best campaign of 2014. Unfortunately, 4(4-0-0) won’t do it. Maybe if one of those 4 was a BC win (or the Derby in Chromes case).
I can think of 7.5 million reasons why. He is something like 14(13-0-0) on turf. All G1's and G2's, truely amazing. I would be shocked if he came back and dominated at 8 yrs old, if he could he could see 10 million, tough to do on turf in America.
You can please all of the fans some of the time, some of the fans all of the time, but you can never please all of the fans all of the time. Especially on this sight. I think it would be awesome if he takes to the turf. That would open up races everywhere, not just Japan Cup.
lots of hoopla about Bayern’s interference in the classic. Most people want to take him down. This just tells me most people didn’t have him on their ticket. Shame on any handicapper that didn’t have Bayern, the nation’s best frontrunner, on their ticket when almost every race was won by early speed. But back to the interference issue. Did he cut them all off? Sure he did, but if we take Bayern down don’t we have to change the order of finish in almost every Kentucky Derby? The Derby has about 100 yards of banging, rubbing, bumping right out of the gate. So relax, Bayern won.
With only 13 days until the Breeders Cup, I find it odd that
on a website dedicated to the sport we have had almost ZERO (with the exception of todays article by
Ms. Ross) articles on handicapping the races.
I know some of us are sitting on little tidbits of info about certain
races, or angles that have worked well in the past, horses that they have seen
train well, etc. But all we have is
articles written about how horses have won the races they have already
raced. In my opinion its time this site
stepped it up a notch and did some investigative work that might help gamblers
from the casual handicapper to the advanced horse player. How about a legit analysis of the Euros, that
might help. We can only read so many
articles about how pretty a horse is, or why we should know that a certain
horse is retired and stands at Barn X.
Its time for some meat and potatoes in the articles!
Icy wouldn't a pace meltdown hinder Bayern sense he likes to lead? I see the pace helping others if its fast early (which it usually always is)
I believe the Euros have taken 26 of the 45 spots in the last 15 Filly and Mare turf races, Im not sure what the field percentage is but Im guessing its around 25%, that is the definition of Dominance. As far as the Juvenile Filly turf, I agree the americans have been better
