Personal Ensign, Alysheba, Fager, I don't even know. The only reason Fager is not a certainity is because the memories are very faint and before he reached his true greatness as a four year old. Best day of racing I've ever seen was the '88 Breeders' Cup.
Chrome is very good and has earned the award. But he also earned The sentimental vote because of his likable connections. I personally feel that he is not the best horse in America, but no horse has accomplished more than he did. In my opinion, Wise Dan is the best horse in America, if not the world, but he has not been able to accomplish what California Chrome has.
She will be bred to Tapit next spring. Not sure how I feel about this, I wanted her to stay here in Texas.
He ran a nice second in his comeback behind a good one in W V Jetsetter. Both he and Promise Me Silver ran well. Silver Akantha ran 3rd in the filly stake. It was a good night for freshman sire Silver City.
I like Rich Tapestry as well. And am rooting for Bourbon Courage.

The Jockey Club tour thing on Fox was better than the NBC TC/Travers/PC/whatever coverage. The Fox crew gave wagers and information about the race and horses entered. The NBC guys interviewed ice skaters and sampled mint juleps all day. They barely gave the two time HOTY any coverage on Derby Day. Instead, the were re running their feature on Chrome and talking to the gay skater.
I'm glad they've done a great job with him. He finally put it together in the OK Derby after placing in a couple good races. I wonder if he'll show up on the BC undercard. I believe there is a stake on that Sat. going 7/8.
I'm here. Back riding again. I spent a few weekends accompanying grandkids to Pony Club rallys. Goblin, an easy solution to the problem would be to buy Bronzo before he wins the Dirt Mile ;)
No it's not. When a horse slows the pace, it helps himself. When he quickens it, it hurts both him and the opposition.
