I think he announced he would scratch and head to the Gotham.
Don't take him too seriously, he also thought Chrome was an over hyped claimer and that Frosted was going to destroy him in the Dubai World Cup and we all know how that played out.
You probably shouldn't tell people to watch the races if you have not. Based on your comment you obviously haven't because he won both the Risen Star and the Louisiana Derby from off the pace.
Career best! looks like he is improving.
That's what was impressive to me about this race, forget the field they were completely outclassed but he said some pretty fast fractions and still finished up strong. Not a bad first race back.
Well it came across that way when you said let's see what he does against G1 horses, if I took it the wrong way I do apologize I'm not trying to start an argument either
Not a bad thing at all, I'm a big fan of Curlin and his babies. It's just that nobody had made such claims that he was the GOAT and it's just irritating to me when people come in here happy about a horse they like and someone has to come in to knock the horse because it may not be their personal favorite that's all. Let people enjoy themselves a bit, this forum can get pretty ugly for no good reason sometimes.
Next fastest time at the distance was One Liner in the Southwest at 1:41.85
Who said anything about being the GOAT? The most being said is that he is the 2nd best horse in the country behind Arrogate, which is probably accurate. In his last ( a G1) he put away a field that included 4 very nice G1 horses, one of which came back to run a decent second to Arrogate in the Pegasus (Shaman Ghost) and another who came back to win a G2 very impressively (Hoppertunity). If he was by Curlin you'd be foaming at the mouth right now, let fans of the horse celebrate that their horse won without trying to knock the horse when he's proved himself very capable.
He ran much better today than his last, I think he has a lot of potential. That pedigree is amazing!
