Mo Tom is going to the Super Derby, not the Travers, per Amoss. https://twitter.com/tomamossracing
Okay, I "liked" and agree with both your comments because there is no doubt that Chrome is thriving since the partnership split between Coburn and Martin and the subsequent 30% acquisition by Taylor Made. There must have been some dissension between the original two in order for Coburn to decide to exit. I don't pretend to know what the problems might specifically have been. However, the bone bruising was discovered during the physical exam Chrome underwent prior to the stud farm entering the picture. Taylor Made still wanted to stand him, and he was turned-out and rehabbed at their facility under their care for the recommended time; I think that was 60-90 days. Anyway, Chrome has been at his very best since returning to racing after that interlude. I see Taylor Made as a huge positive in the colt's life, and for whatever reason, Coburn sold his 30% to them. Coburn's post Belmont comments did not enter my mind when reading your original post. :)
Pebbles, I don't see Secretariat on your list! ;)
Per the Saratoga track news notes yesterday, the entries will be taken on Tuesday. (Tomorrow.) Can be found in this link in the paragraph beginning with, "The Travers picked up another entrant....". Of interest in the link as well, is the fact that Majesto is added to the field. :) https://www.nyra.com/saratoga/news/saratoga-race-course-notes-8/21/16
I don't know why, and said nothing at all about a "commitment". I simply told you that Grening and BH both just reported from post Alabama interviews that the Cotillion was the race mentioned. Matt Shifman's article here says the same thing.
She is to be shipped back to California next week, but will return east to run in the Cotillion via DRF Grening. Also, Hollendorfer just mentioned the Cotillion per BH. So, staying in California isn't definite. https://twitter.com/DRFGrening?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor
This 2y/o son of Blame won Race 2 at Saratoga this P.M. after being passed in the stretch and re-rallying impressively. He fought back to win the 6f. MSW in 1:09.87. I'll be watching him in the future.
Thinking about the '90s females; little Serena's Song took on males several times, winning the '95 Jim Beam and Haskell; later managed 2nd in the Whitney. Dance Smartly raced through '92 and had the Canadian TC to her credit. Paseana raced through '95; faced males at least once in the Pacific Classic, but did not win. Bayakoa was still on the track in '91; I believe she also raced against males, but did not win. (I'm doing some of this from memory. For sure, Serena's Song was a little powerhouse in the '90s.) :)
You can do whatever you want. Again, other people here have pointed out your lack of fact-checking and accuracy over a period of time. There is nothing remotely disingenuous about me; I'm essentially straightforward. It's 3 A.M. here, probably later where you are; I'm not going on with this now or ever. Please attempt to research accurately.
You have been told by at least 4 people here over a period of many months that the "opinions" you state are frequently based on erroneous ideas, provably so. People besides me have implored you to fact-check before offering your epistles. Inaccuracies at the base/premise of an argument invalidate almost anything that follows. YOU are the one who inaccurately assumed that BH writers created the text of the Top 100 book and then offered that as a reason to discount it! I "talked" to you at length about some of this nonsense before, and kept it off the main page. When I read the other threads here on HRN, I see the same stuff going on, with others' patience growing thin. Offering your "criteria" means little when statements contained therein are simply wrong. There are other historical mistakes in your above criteria/opinions; I'm not going to point those out; maybe someone else will later. What I said to you above is surprising to me as well, but your lack of regard for others' standards and the truth is getting old. And, really, I guess I'll give you a link for the definition of "obtuse".... http://www.dictionary.com/browse/obtuse There are other young persons on this site who strive to be accurate and are precise in their writings--Jeremy, BTN (I think he's a very young teen), cocoa/Sullivan (high schooler), jockey2be, Jb, ATO, etc. It's not an impossibility.
