I'm 40 now, been following horse racing since I was a kid, Grew up near Churchill Downs. HUGE fan. ARROGATE is the best horse I've seen in those years. On dirt or turf. The horse is absolutely amazing to me...the way he strides out is so freakish, he gobbles ground up so easily. For all the haters, name a horse in the last 30 yrs that would take him down at 10 furlongs?
Exactly why are so many people calling this year's potential field in the Classic one of the strongest in years? I just don't get the hype. Average field at best in my opinion.
Looks To Spare has absolutely no business being entered in this race. Talk about being in way over your head. I'm not sure how in the hell he's only 30-1 in the morning line. He should be more like 300-1.
Which horse caused him to check so hard at the beginning of the Met Mile? Pants On Fire or Bayern? I couldn't really tell. If it was Bayern...well you know.
Really...only 4 freaking horses going in one of the most prestigious races in North America for 3yr olds. To me this year's edition is a complete joke!
Stay safe everyone!

"Less than two week into 2014 and Baltimore City has already had 16 homicides, and police said where it's happening is random."
"Neighbors say the sight of police tape marking off separate areas is becoming all too familiar in Park Heights, and something needs to change."

"Baltimore man charged in connection with Park Heights homicide"
"BALTIMORE - An 18-year-old man has been charged in connection with a homicide in Park Heights earlier this month.
Leron Gibbs of Baltimore is being held at the Baltimore City Detention Center for the shooting death of 22-year old Austaniel Brown.
Brown was shot to death in the 4900 block of Park Heights Avenue on Sept. 3."
Thanks for the info. Since you brought up Park Heights, the location of Pimlico, I thought I'd google the area to see if it is as safe as you say. One of the first articles that came up was from the Baltimore Sun that was dated February 13, 2015. Here's a snip-it of the article.
"16-year-old killed in Park Heights double shooting, 3 others shot in city Thursday"
"Two 16-year-olds were shot, one of them fatally, in a double shooting in Park Heights, amid two other shootings in the city Thursday, police said."
Yeah, that sounds like a really safe area of town for a tourist to be in.
Well a tourist from Toronto, Canada was just gunned down by a thug here in Louisville on Derby night. Yes the patrons might be safe at the track but what about outside the track, let's say traveling from and to your hotel, like the victim from Toronto? And by the way it was a black on white attack. Just thought I'd throw that out there considering all we seem to hear from our media is how blacks are being preyed upon by law enforcement and the evil white man.
