I've lost a lot on betting Curlin's, but no one wants spamming of losers on here, so it's nice when one pays nicely and since there was a thread on the race, I figured I'd post.
Just read on twitter that The Tin Man has passed away. Sad news.
I had a small win bet on Shemp, due strictly to the Curlin factor. Paid handsomely!
Coming from him, it's your typical hindsight is 20/20 deal. Naturally has all the answers. Quoting Mike Tyson: Everyone has a game plan until they get punched in the mouth. And unfortunately for California Chrome, Martin has the plan until Chrome takes a huge punch from his competition at Ascot. People are saying no big deal if Chrome loses, just bring him back and he'll be like his old self. Perry is not thinking this way in the least.
Not sure if this was already posted, but quite the fall for the jockey. He walked off course.
It's called Turf racing at it's very finest, with a big dose of unfortunately.
If both stay healthy, could Palace Malice give Shared Belief a run for his money?! I would love to see it.
Just my opinion but I think California Chrome will win the Dubai World Cup by 6 or more lengths. He will have his way against those dirt horses over there. Will be a Curlin like performance (Yes I'm biased) Well Armed did very well over there also. California Chrome will be fine over there. When they brought Curlin over, he was there for a long time and he did great in his two races.
