The stretch. He is such an exciting horse to watch
If you knew anything about this horse you would know he hardly works well. His works are usually slow. He has never been an impressive work tab horse- but he is game come race day. He likes to be a deep closer though and they don't always run well at belmont. Hopefully Bayern and or private zone bring the heat so HC can come flying home down
The horse has overcome all obstacles and done everything sled of him and more
You could also go the complete opposite direction and say that the exact things you mentioned actually were hurdles not helpers. Firing line pushed pharoah wide and made him run more ground. And it was all because Gary didn't want to engage doetmund because he knew what dort does which is fight hard for the win. Also the rain was so bad people said the horses on the rail ran through inches of standing water. Sorry but no slightly wet track prepares you for that. Pharoah ran a brilliant race- rain or no. Dortmund had everything his way and had every chance and just got tired. He handled the track just fine he just had no juice. For people to say that AP is only here because of luck is just absurd
Thanks for the wonderful photos! Can't say enough how much I appreciate this
Me either mike. I was praying IHA wouldn't win the triple crown because of his connections. Shady to the max and just not likable. Why can't every trainer just be honest and good like Michael Matz. Le sigh
Probably don't want to face AP who looks phenomenal after getting spanked by him when he wasn't even close to this top form he is in now
Good to see you causeforconcern
Looks like the competition is dropping out once they have seen Pharoah work. I'd be scared of facing him too!
Where did you see/ how do you know that Carpe Diem is out
