Reminiscent of Tiznow, don't you think?
One fact about Arrogate's earnings that would be tough to break, is most races to average over $1 million a race(7).
Wow!!!! Further proof of shadows of Secretariat. Here's some similarities: Secretariat set the Ky Derby record of 1:59.2, eclipsing the old mark of 2:00.0 by Northern Dancer. Arrogate duplicated Secretariat's time in the Travers, breaking the old record by the same margin of time of 2:00.0. The old record holder? General Assembly, son of Secretariat. California Chrome was beaten by 29 1/2 lengths. Almost the same distance(31 lengths) as the runner-up(Twice A Price) to Secretariat in the Belmont.
Good to see you're still around Vic!!! Count me as a believer of this colt. Visions of Secretariat. Ask Liam.
Since the break from the gate is short to the first turn, and the track had been redesigned, there have not been many races at this distance. His post position would be favorable for a track record. Don't be surprised.
Based on the scintillating performance in the Travers, Arrogate has come closest to duplicating Secretariat time-wise. Always looking for another Secretariat. Maybe Arrogate can fit that bill?
It took Strike The Gold 53 weeks to win his next race after his Kentucky Derby victory. Tale Of Verve took 63 weeks to hit the board after his Preakness runner-up. To the connections, that is a lot of patience and feed bills in between. Congrats on your determination finally paying off.
And to think that this would be the first of five consecutive Belmont Stakes wins for Woody Stephens. What a way to start!!!!!
It's too late. I would still sing the song for her. Whatever happened to her since her moment is her own doing. And, I wouldn't be dissuaded by what is written. Positive thoughts and intent will always be the rule.
Also, when mentioning last year, it was the slowest time in something like 62 years. Tale of Verve had a run where he never finished better than 6th following that race.
