Unfortunately for Chrome, he took a layoff after a loss instead of a win and that's all the crowd remembers.
I have to agree. I'm astounded by how fickle horse racing fans are. I wonder what happens if SB loses a race? And Honor Code and Cairo Prince, who were raved about in the spring, make a successful return? I'm new here so is an ever changing nominee for "the best!!!" as common as it seems?
He broke down in his first race? How sad. RIP boy. :(
Victory in Europe (not just victory for Europe). Americans fought and died in WWII as well. Americans danced in Times Square in celebration. Quite a name for a horse to live up to. And his stablemate Wicked Strong was named in honor of the Boston marathon bombing. Kind of nice they finished first and second.
Poor thing. I see a lot of wasted potential in her.
I'll never understand why whips are allowed. In any other circumstances, it's illegal to hit an animal that isn't attacking you.
I think that's its a big overstatement to suggest he's the best. He ran a very good race. But his total record so far isn't that impressive.
IMO, it's those who run their horses on Lasix that need to reconsider their mindset. Those who run without Lasix should be praised. The others should be shunned and run out of the business.
Ruffian. At any distance, on any track. No disrespect to Zenyatta, who is great and would beat probably anyone else of her gender. But among the ladies, Ruffian has no match.
Frankel hands down is the most overated. The English seriously consider him the best race horse ever to step on a track, rating him higher than Man O War and Secretariat. Yet he was just a miler basically.He was so carefully managed he was only entered in races he was almost certain to win. He dodged many of the best European races and stiffest competion
