What if Frankel wins the Champion Stakes, then what, retirement? Think not... you still have a two week break to come over and try the Classic! You have nothing to lose and alot to gain. Excuses are: Two week turnaraound, first time on dirt, and &-hour time change! Upside: Undefeated career, Champion in Europe and North America, and Classic victories on Dirt and Turf!!!
... plus his late turn of foot would work perfect with Santa Anita's 3/16 mile stretch!!!
Orfevre should try Breeders Cup Classic... Horse seems to love 1 1/4 miles type races. Grandsire is Sunday Silence so conventional dirt should not be a factor!!!
You actually have to give OP alot of credit because for him to et passed like that he could have gaven up the race and rode for second but he knew that Orfevre was gonna come back because once Orfevre gets the lead he gets lazy and there for stopped running thinking he won already!!!! So much credit Olivier!!!!
