What are you even talking about? It sounds like you're saying Beholder hasn't made history. No, she hasn't broken record after record or has a 19 race win streak, but she was hardly a shade shy in both time and margin of victory in the Pacific Classic. So what if she didn't break Zenyatta's record? Greatness isn't defined by a clock or a time. That and she's the first horse in nearly 4 decades to mantain top form and win a Grade 1 as a 2yo, 3yo, 4yo, and now 5yo. You can't say that saying Beholder is one of the best of her generation is degrading to these other fantastic mares. That's degrading to Beholder. She's making her own history and taking her own path to do it. And they didn't say she had 19 wins. They said 20 starts with 15 wins, 9 being G1 races. She belongs in talks with history because she's a great mare just like the rest of the ones you've mentioned. She's only the second horse behind Zenyatta to win two different BC races, and the first to win the Juvenile Fillies and the Distaff. What you're saying doesn't make hardly any sense. If anything, more of it is your opinion.
Yes. Her official breeze should be in a few days. She seemed to be just fine over the Keeneland surface, very eager yet professional.
She's supposed to gallop tomorrow or Thursday. She walked under tack this afternoon and was super bright and alert!
With all these breakdowns happening at Keeneland right now (Rock Fall a big name here) it terrifies me when it comes to not only Beholder, but every horse running in the Breeders' Cup. Not only that, it'll only add fuel to the anti horse racing fire that horses are treated horribly and run into the ground, which is completely false on 99% of accounts. I just hope Keeneland investigates the surface or something before the BC.
I don't even handicap first of all. So that argument is invalid. Second, just because you don't like a horse doesn't give you a right to say they deserve to die. You're the schmuck.
The fact that his rating went from 9.30ish to 9.20 seems to prove (at least to me) how many people only liked him until he lost. He's a great horse in his own right, not even the greats can win them all. Sorry.. Just had to point that out. I just noticed his rating plummeted after the Travers.
I always thought Bayern for lucky last year in a few races he won. I was never able to jump on his bandwagon. But that's no right to ever say a horse should die because they're not performing well. If anything, you're the POS for this disgusting comment. He just needs to retire is all. Get a life, a**hole.
Thank you, I was about to say. She was my favorite at the time!! She reminded me of Storm Flag Flying a bit, one of my all time favorite fillies. Both extremely fast growers it seems. But still able to win past their juvenile season.
Is she not running in the Zenyatta this weekend?
I really think she's locked up Older Female, at least in my opinion. Even if she doesn't win the BCC, she's proven herself yet again why she's a force to be reckoned with.
