Thanks for the heads up, love the chestnuts
Yes, he has the new course record. Not sure if Dan held record prior, but the new course is lightning quick. Scary to think what will happen if it stays this way for the BC.
Wow, Tepin THIRD?
Maybe he should have retired him last year?????
No one knew Chrome was going to be this good this year, and quite a few times it was suspected that Dortmund might get him. Hindsight is 20/20.
Baffert's mistake in the Travers was shipping. The horse should never have gone back to California. Asking him to ship to Monmouth and back and then to Saratoga with only 3 weeks rest is unfair for any horse with little break from the Triple Crown. Even the only timers didn't do that.
Difference between Hronis and Hughes, regardless of the talents of their charges...
Big mistake to break it into two days. Move it a week before or after SA if you like, but why harm the day?
It's not often you get O'Brien longer than 5-1!
As always, thank you Goblin. Good to know American Pharoah got credit for his greatness.
How long has it been since we had the best horse at the year's end? Curlin? Cigar?
What's ridiculous is that you can compare races run over different tracks in different ways in different temperature with different trips... California Chrome's times mean nothing -- in his last three races, the horse could have been asked and shave at least 3/5 if not more off of each race if he was working the whole way around. Same with American Pharoah.
