Sherman knows Chrome is more valuable on the track than at stud. Martin is going to run him until a leg falls off.
I don't see more ground helping him much, as he will be facing horses who can carry their speed further than the current horses, so still tough for him to keep contact.
They are still used today in many races. Saturday, Postponed had a stablemate as his rabbit in the QEII Coronation Stakes (G1) on The Investec Derby's undercard.
Bullet Train, a 3/4 brother to Frankel, is best known as his rabbit. He was a group winner before this duty.
What exactly would such a race prove? That one is slighly worse a race horse?
The bloom is off these two. I doubt we will ever see Cozmic One run again. More likely shipped to some California farm to stand for $2500 and attracting few mare owners.
AP is unproven as a sire, and with the limited number of foals Z can bear, breeding her to a totally unproven sire is too big a crap shoot.
Medaglia d'Oro is prove, and his foals are fast. Very fast.
Wow, you need to learn about horse trainers and learn who are succeeding and who are not. Shirreffs is not.
Good trainers can get the best out of horses, and train them to give their best willingly. This colt is poorly placed, and has shown if close enough to the leaders can do well.
Two wins this year total for Shirreffs in 44 starts.
He might have known with Zenyatta, or she might just have been so good she overcame him.
Shirreffs isn't just struggling with her sons. He hasn't won a race at any track at any level with any horse since January. Apparently most of his stable are the Moss's horses, and they don't mind him not winning.
Don't get me wrong. I think this colt DOES have talent, and would likely improve if moved to a better trainer.
It can be done if a horse is trained properly and willing to be guided by his rider. This colt shows far more aptitude than his half brother, but I fear will not break his maiden with Shirreffs.
That might make sense if Ziconic had broken his maiden in his 2nd start as Cigar did, was finishing close to the front in allowance company by now.
There is no resemblance with Cigar if viewed objectively.
I have to wonder why the Mosses are leaving their horses with Shirriffs who has had only a single win at any level this year in 44 starts with decent horses.
He was obviously talking about the 1995 Breeders Cup Classic. Kind of funny to be taking someone to task for being uneducated when any real fan of the sport would know immediately the race.
