I apologize for perhaps being on the wrong forum, but DOES ANYONE HAVE AN UPDATE ON AU MOON, THE 9 YEAR OLD GELDING WHO BROKE DOWN AT MONMOUTH PARK YESTERDAY? Many thanks. Liam's Map ran a great race, Honor Code just nipped him in time. Kudos to both. That being said, I don't see any horse in training today beating American Pharoah in the BC, especially a closer like Honor Code. Too bad Shared Belief is still on the mend. That would be a match up worth the price of admission.
Yep, yep, yep. That's what I'm thinking too, but she is not going to get Horse of the Year because it's time for a colt to receive the honors. That would be Wise Dan, all the way. Too bad "doll" face.
They are starting to look at more than just the BC classic win. Wise Dan is a very versatile horse, rare. He should get it.
If Dan doesn't get the Horse of the Year award, it will go to one of the outstanding females. I'd say Groupie Doll has a good chance, but it's really time for a male horse to have the honors. Wise Dan will get it.
I KNEW when the commentator mentioned that Fort Larned was totally being brushed aside for this race that he was going to win it. Same thing happened last year when they poked fun of Hansen, basicly giving him no chance aside from being the "rabbit". Yeah, right. The horses know a little more than the commentators do.
I like him too, the little pom pom is a kick, the little bright red pom pom, that is. Nice horse, still say he costed Bode the derby, not that it matters now.
I never heard anyone say Animal Kingdom's derby win was a fluke. As far as I know no one thinks that. He's a terrific horse who's had some rotten luck and he seems to always prevail. Tons of talent and heart, fluke? Not a chance.
How many horses could come off as long a lay off as Animal Kingdom has and DO THAT? Not many, that's for sure. Kudos Kingdom, a derby winner, and a champ always. Bet you could've won the classic..
Look at it this way, a 9 year old gelding from "nowhere" won, and it was his 60 something or seventy something race. Well, you know damn well he wasn't one of our's. LOL.
China does love luck and gambling but their culture does not provide for animal advocacy. The country commits systematic animal atrocities on a daily basis as an excepted part of their culture. I fear the horses would be "disposable". Before you attack me for being prejudice, research the subject. Being truthful doesn't make me a bigot. Facts are facts, and you can't erase culture.
