The Santa Anita track gave California Chrome that 107 Beyer. Nothing at all against the horse, but he's loaded in speed without a doubt. If this same field was assembled in New York, it would have been a much different outcome. It wasnt, and the best horse on that particular track won his points on Saturday. This doesnt mean that the best horse out of this years crop won the race. That other one, Schoolofhardrocks, didnt have a prayer on that slick track but he wanted to go obviously. If they throw him into another prep at Santa Anita, he's done, if they move him outta there, you'll see a real derby contender. Thats just my humble opinion.
Huge Thumbs Up!! Keep 'em coming.
Mr. Laz, thank you for the in depth description of that race. He sat in 3rd all the way around a 12f track and then took off like a rocket. I can just imagine it. They dont come any better than that. This horse has surely captured my imagination and I cant thank you enough for sharing. There is something more to this particular Champion than just his stellar racing career. Alot more. I believe that his strengths did not die with him and I intend to study it until I can go no further. Again, you are a gem.
Laz, you are an invaluable asset for all readers at HRN. Thank you so much.
Euro Trash, the more I dig into this giant the more convinced I am that he may have been one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, of all time. I do not think it is a coincidence that his name is found in charts of some of the best stakes runners of our day. Powerful and Magnificent Animal.
Sully, I must say, that is by far the funniest line I've read on here!!! LMAO!!! You have just surpassed Jay S's best line in calling someone a jack hole!!! Congrats! You're the man!!
Thanks SS. I had a ton of books that unfortunately left at my old house when I UP and LEFT!!! Long story and not one for here thats for sure. :) I think at one time I had that Porter book along with some really great others that at the time I kinda looked through but now I NEED!!! It kills me!
Thanks SS. I just ordered it. Worth every penny if my ideas on this really amount to something. I just wish there was a way to get my hands on those old charts from ALL of the old timers. There must be something out there.
Perfect Buck... I'm going there now and will purchase. Again, many thanks for your time and great insight. Also, the great Buckpasser shows up in Samraats chart!!! There's something in the air!! I'm feeling triple crown winner in 2014!! At the very least, he's got the muscle! Thanks again.
This is something I am working on Sullivan. Its very exciting. The more I dig into Samraat, the more convinced I am that this horse is something extra special. But, I am also trying to get a handle on the pattern of these older generation sires as it pertains to low profiles and graded stakes winners. I'm getting closer and closer everyday.
