Arrogate is pulling the pharoah- he could be dangerous with that amount of rest.
The thing is chrome makes his move on the turn as well. He started to pull away in both the PC and AA on the turn before the stretch. And he does it on his own before Victor even has to give him a shake of the reigns. I just don't see any scenario where frosted can win this against chrome or melatonin etc unless he magically finds a way to come with That huge closing kick like he did at a mile
Shipping early lets you get used to the track but he will also be subject to the noise and media at SA preparing for the BC which can lead to horses getting worked up. Hence why chrome is staying at LA until as late as possible.
It is hard to judge frosted's liking for running on any track as several of them (CD, Meydan, Keenland) were at 10f where he didn't run a lick and just plodded along not coming with his usual run that he does at less than 10f
Isn't gun runner going to the dirt mile?
Frosted didn't stay- he was several lengths behind keen ice in third
Chrome was also coasted home in his derby which is why he slow time. He was easily six lengths in front in the stretch so Victor didn't ride him hard anymore. Same thing with his pacific classic time. That's why you can't always compare times unless the horse was actually running hard, the one setting the fractions, etc.
Who is af? You mean pharoah?
Harder to win at ten yet you give Chrome no respect for winning three times at the distance and running a second and a nice third.
You make excuses for horses you like yet don't allow them for other horses you don't like. You're the most biased person on this site and it drives everyone nuts.
The fact is frosted has never put in a winning run at 10f. He plodded along in every try never threatening except for one. The travers he was sacrificed by gunning for the lead yet probably would have plodded along like usual if he wasn't sent. He is a different horse at 10f and doesn't come with his closing kick like he does at shorter distances. Bottom line. That's all there is to it. If he plods along again he won't crack the top four. If for some reason he miraculously runs a fast 10f race and comes with some type of run- then he has a shot. But with his record (a zero win record that's a fact) it's highly unlikely
Nope melatonin arrogate and chrome top three
