Pebbles, I'm just now seeing a lot of the "discussion" on this thread. I said he is thriving because Taylor Made entered the picture, and that they would not have entered the picture when they did had Coburn not sold his share. I know the history of the original plan to ship overseas. I mentioned "dissension"; the depth, timing, and specifics of the dissension is not truly known by anyone other than those involved. Taylor Made has been a positive in Chrome's life, period.
Jb, I'm adding a short video of his work from DRF Russo. :) Will need to scroll down a bit. https://twitter.com/drfrusso
Mo Tom is going to the Super Derby, not the Travers, per Amoss. https://twitter.com/tomamossracing
Okay, I "liked" and agree with both your comments because there is no doubt that Chrome is thriving since the partnership split between Coburn and Martin and the subsequent 30% acquisition by Taylor Made. There must have been some dissension between the original two in order for Coburn to decide to exit. I don't pretend to know what the problems might specifically have been. However, the bone bruising was discovered during the physical exam Chrome underwent prior to the stud farm entering the picture. Taylor Made still wanted to stand him, and he was turned-out and rehabbed at their facility under their care for the recommended time; I think that was 60-90 days. Anyway, Chrome has been at his very best since returning to racing after that interlude. I see Taylor Made as a huge positive in the colt's life, and for whatever reason, Coburn sold his 30% to them. Coburn's post Belmont comments did not enter my mind when reading your original post. :)
Pebbles, I don't see Secretariat on your list! ;)
Per the Saratoga track news notes yesterday, the entries will be taken on Tuesday. (Tomorrow.) Can be found in this link in the paragraph beginning with, "The Travers picked up another entrant....". Of interest in the link as well, is the fact that Majesto is added to the field. :) https://www.nyra.com/saratoga/news/saratoga-race-course-notes-8/21/16
I don't know why, and said nothing at all about a "commitment". I simply told you that Grening and BH both just reported from post Alabama interviews that the Cotillion was the race mentioned. Matt Shifman's article here says the same thing.
She is to be shipped back to California next week, but will return east to run in the Cotillion via DRF Grening. Also, Hollendorfer just mentioned the Cotillion per BH. So, staying in California isn't definite. https://twitter.com/DRFGrening?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor
This 2y/o son of Blame won Race 2 at Saratoga this P.M. after being passed in the stretch and re-rallying impressively. He fought back to win the 6f. MSW in 1:09.87. I'll be watching him in the future.
