V.E. rode great. He got his horse loose on the lead. M. Smith on the other hand seemed to do everything possible to lose. Watching the fractions as the race unfolded I didn't think CC could be caught as M.S was 4/5 of a second off the pace at the second call. Running down a horse the caliber of CC who was loose on the lead is totally amazing. Watching the muscle movement of Arrogate while he accelerated was chilling.
Frosted, IMO is every bit as good as Quality Road and they kept him running. There's a lot more races under 10f than at that distance. He just got through running three excellent races coming into the BCC. Good day to you Buckpasser.
It didn't hurt him anymore than it hurt Quality Road who the last time I looked gets 30k the same as Blame. It might have changed, but the desire for a great miler hasn't and Frosted is certainly that.
No, I wasn't guessing. I just made it up on the spur of the moment like most everyone else does when they don't know. I've seen worse:)
I love it when someone spends 8 hours refuting my comment. Then again it's not like you had anything else to do. LUVYAH
This is the Youtube video workout of Arrogate 10/31/2016. At the one minute mark I thought I was looking at the rear end of Hoist The Flag. He was a beast and in my mind every bit the looker and mover Secretariat was. His almost imperceptible acceleration at the 1/16 pole in the Travers was breathtaking. This is a very fast powerful horse with no wasted motion. Considering his sire staying sound will be his biggest problem not other horses. He'll still be above the 5/2 ML because Frosted, a magnificent 9f will take a lot of money. IMO the best way to wager is just bet the horse because as noted in this thread by another the two favorites don't usually finish together. Coming out of the #10 post I don't believe they'll try to rate him but rather run with CC and Mel. Below is the video of Arrogate. GL
Obviously my idiom wasn't seen as such. GL, you'll need it by the truckload if your actions follow your words.
Whether you agree with me or not good luck. I'm not infallible as my three losing tickets on secretariat in three separate races attest to.
At 7 furlongs Saratoga is no different than Santa Anita. Being a Nexpert you all to know that. As for your list of horses and their respective times You should entertain the possibility that this is a better horse.
I wouldn't leave CC out he's a real good gutsy fast horse. He's just not in the same class as this guy and the rest aren't in the same class as CC. This is one of the best horses my staff of one and I have ever seen, period! Should have named him "Easy Smooth"
