He's proven that he's by far the best 3 year old in the land. He just has to do it one more time! I hope the groom doesn't leave his stall except to walk him and whatnot. I just don't want anybody to rain on his parade IYKWIM.
Thanks for the insight Yukichan; just read the link. And I must say after reading Churchills response, it sounded as if they truly were sorry. Thought there are always over one hundred fifty thousand in attendance, it's hospitality 101 that taking care of the ownners and their families comes first. Let's check back next year to see.
Chrome's a beast! It's his triple crown to lose, though we all know Victor will have a bullseye on hi s back. Yeah Social Inclusion is the X factor but Chrome has what it takes!
Chromes turn of foot displayed in his last three races at the top of the stretch are so akin to a champion turf horse! You just don't see that very often in dirt races. His tactical speed, great temperment, and raw ability to me are head and shoulders above the competition. He reminds me of one of my favorite horses, John Henry. The sky's the limit for this guy and I don't really see any obstacles, other than bad racing luck, to compromise his way of racing.
The Feather will not be beaten in the Ladies Classic. I predict she'll win by at least two, probably more. That last little stakes was the perfect tightner, and she'll just glide over that speed favoring oval. It'll be flag fall to that's all, sitting chilly behind Questing, L&P, My Miss, or whoever wants to take up the running. And if everybody takes back then Jeffery can pull a Track Robbery from the 80s like P Val used to do. It's the most anticipated race of the two days for me, just to see her do her thing. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll get 5 to 1, though perhaps they'll pound RD & the other contenders, assuming (wrongly) that she hasn't beaten anything. I'll be happy with 7/2 and above.
She just does what it takes. Knows what it's all about. And doesn't care about not beating any "amazing" horses. You'll see come Friday when she sits the trip behind Questing and goes right on by at the top of the stretch to win in hand by a comfortable margin. That 1:33 & change mile shows her ability and is the perfect set up!
That's jut it: "Proof" isn't everything my friend. There is also something else called the supernatural. Let's be tolerant of everyone and leave the snide remarks for the laugh factory crowd.
