Since he is 7 now, maybe the plans should all be shelved and just wait and see if the horse wants to run anymore.
Dubai will be over in 6 weeks and he doesn't have a mount there anyway.
You can't argue with a Chromie. Facts are irrelevant. Anyone can see Frosted's race, just 1/16th a mile shorter was far faster AND the colt was in no hurry to slow down, allowed to gallop out 10f and longer while Chrome shut down before the wire.
Chrome has a grinding racing style. He does not have a late sprint, he just doesn't slow down as much as his opposition. Both Frosted and Mshawish actually accelerate late.
Compare Chrome's race on 25 Feb with Frosted over the same track. Chrome would be several lengths back.
Frosted ran in record time, Chrome ran at a pace almost identical to the low end handicap the same day.
Who would use Rosario when Buick is available? Rosario is a good rider, but Buick is a world-beater.
He might have been in March, but not November. Liam's Map was.
Shared Belief has abdicated the spot by not having won in 6 months. If the wounded warriors are included, the Wise Dan tops him.
I would have to go with Texas Red.
Maybe the reason he hasn't been tested is because his is head and shoulders better than the opposition. He wasn't even that tested in the KY Derby, other than the severe beating he took at the hands of Espinoza.
I wish people would quit using the term "hater" for people who merely disagree with the premise offered.
Especially when Ebouissante and Mr Besilu should have tempered expectations significantly. The AP Indy/Bernardini cross with that female line has been extremely disappointing, even if extremely profitable to their breeders.
