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.
Hives is an allergic reaction to something. How the horse feels is known only to the horse. Ever get a sinus infection? Can be nasty right. Does your trainer know?
Nice works...speed/speed/stamina/stamina/speed... In form, and it seems he is, he's as tough as anyone out there at 5yos. Those Mineshaft's do mature late as stated in pedigree power. Donworth 2nd off big layoff and ran strong...
Informative, enjoyable read as always. Mineshaft's progeny were very good at 9f, and he himself didn't come into his own until a 4YO. For a filly/mare in n/a 9F's is all you really need. That might well be said for the males too.
IMO trainer did a poor job preparing this horse for the KD...never gave him time to even catch his breath from the time he left Dubai to the start of the race... should have been excluded from the wagering as he insisted on running him. As for the Belmont and 12F's the horse never changed leads, again, etc. Sure Secretariat could do it, but...........
