What I like about Frosted is he runs on a tiring track like Saratoga almost as well a Belmont's speed track.
Dr. Fager was under wraps too. He broke the record set by Buckpasser of 1:33.60 as a 3yo. I would have loved to see just one race where there was enough speed to keep Buckpasser interested all the way full out. Such as Secretariat's Belmont. I don't know the results but I believe it would have been close. People forget how fast this horse was because he always had to be rated so as not to take the lead until the 1/16 pole. Not trying to rain on Frosted who was just spectacular today and one of my favorites.
I believe Frosted's Travers run where he ran fast internal fractions gave an indication that a race like this would eventually come along. American Pharoah ran those same fractions. His Belmont Stakes run in 2015 (Frosted) was a nice race in itself, unfortunately he was in with an all timer.
Bad racing luck or I believe he would have had it. Nice analysis, I'll catch him down the road later in the year.
Exaggerator can run close to the lead if need be. They only switched because they kept coming up short when facing Nyquist. Even as a deep closer he came up short in the KD. Exaggerator's a very nice horse, one of two that so far stand above the rest of the 3yos.
I wasn't there last year, but on video it looked like they were running in about 6 inches of water.
WOW...pace pressure in a 3yo stakes race...been a couple years, but racing is back to normal again:) v/sorry forgot about Travers:)
Unless another Prince Bishop shows up...those 8yo geldings can be tuff...like Mshawish for 2nd but will also box...was looking at Frosted's Travers run, on a heavy tiring track like that he pushed the pace to 46.4/5 for the 3rd and 4th quarters, but CC IMO is the best dirt horse running today and he doesn't need to bring the track with him...nice tri there if it hits with CC on top...then again I've only had two winners this year
Sorry Melann, seems agreeing with you isn't to your liking, I'll stop.
Common sense used in an argument, amazing.
