I have to agree with you on this, Rafi. :) Also, let us not forget Shared Belief this year. I think that guy is something special, too. I cannot wait for the return of Top Billing, Honor Code and Chrome. I think we have seen very nice crops these last few years.
As any 2yo would need. He only just arrived.
I'll Have Another, Smarty Jones, Sunday Silence and I have to toss in Afleet Alex, even though his were the last two. He should have won that Derby given better circumstances, but that's horse racing.
Awesome but... currently in Japan, currently in Japan, currently in Japan, currently in Japan. That's what speaks loudest to me about it. Ah, the sad reality.
I was also a naysayer on Tonalist. But all congratulations to him. I'm still down on CC's loss, but you have to appreciate a winner where it's due.
I really cannot agree with him on this one. Triple Crown winners of the past have won defeating fresh horses in the past. If a horse loses the Crown because he cannot defeat these fresh horses, then so be it. And this is coming from someone who LOVES Chrome and was so devastated by the loss today that I had to leave the house right after the race and go out on the town to distract my thoughts! lmao
Fourth sure, but he did not finish that far back, and I don't think he got the trip he would have preferred. He gave it his all and that's all you can ask. There's nothing to knock on this horse, other than he didn't win the Crown. But plenty of great horses haven't won it for one reason or another. I wish he would have done it. A bunch of my family was with me watching. But I am happy he lives to fight another day and happy with his run. He TRIED and he tried hard. After a nice rest, I don't see any reason why he can't take it to them all again. Still love you Chrome, and always will! See you at your next race! Keep showing us what you are made of!
I am really hoping they make the best decision and don't run him.
Sometimes I forget that this horse isn't by Tapit...
