Well, your wrong again amino. IF you know me I played Chrome after watching maidens go close to track record time wire to wire in the early races. Just ask old Tom M how we killed on Derby Day at SANTA ANITA. Last laugh again ! You don't know much about track bias on the west coast. Last year G.O.D. destroyed the field going faster in the Pacific Classic with the same trip he got today. So WHY did he fold today? HE killed in the S.A. BIG CAP against the best the EAST could bring and the RACE of his life cost him the rest of the year. He has not been the same since. HE had the bias and folded. Goldencents went wire to wire in track record time just before him. One more thing ......They are horses not machines....
After his win at Hollywood Park I said he reminded me of Seattle Slew. I was laughed at. I guess I got the last laugh. He could be the next GREAT ONE ! What a show he put on today against OLDER horses and coming from farther back then he has ever been. Who is ever going to beat him?
NEXT.......This horse is for real !!!!
What kind of move is this? Go 6 furlongs prep then 1 1/8th next start. I love this horse but this horse needs another prep of a mile before this kind of race. If he wins it will be on Class only. Hope he does it but not a good betting prop.
I have a suggestion for the Belmont when a horse is alive for the Triple Crown. Any horse that did not start in 1 of the 2 previous Triple Crown races is not allowed to start in the Belmont. I know I would be upset that the 1st and 2nd horses in this years race skipped both the Derby and Preakness. All could be in race IF nobody is going for the Triple Crown. Just throwing that out there...
All I will say is I would of liked Victor to put him in the lead with the break he had and stay in the "clean air". Nascar drivers swear by it why not a horse. Pace was slow and he was getting sand in his face. It was not meant to be but what a year this has started out to be. We could be in for some great races down the road.
I'LL HAVE ANOTHER
Just saying, Did anybody else LOL every time Tom Hammond said Dumb Ass Partners during the live show. It was classic.
There will be no I told you so, what I want from the "Nation" is for the real lovers of the sport to get behind this "One in a million" horse and get us a TRIPLE CROWN WINNER ! I have seen 3 in my lifetime and my sons have never seen 1. 36 years is long enough to see this happen. Betting the Chrome is not in the cards now but to have a TRIPLE CROWN WINNER is all I want to see. Pray he stays sound and gets to the gate in the next 2 starts.
I am sure glad I"LL HAVE ANOTHER did not win by 5 in his Santa Anita Derby. I would have never got the $32.60 he paid in Kentucky. California Chrome will win by whatever Victor wants to win by. WHY do people knock horses from California. Our 2nd string went all over the country winning preps. This is a horse that if he gets a clean trip will have the whole country rooting for a Triple Crown. Oh, That horse also ran in California. AFFIRMED !
