Great article and great points regarding the negativity pointed to this outstanding Champion.
Slew, it is amazing to me how those that think they are the most knowledgeable when it comes to horse racing, constantly and consistently gripe and put down an exceptional horse as if they have something to prove. When in fact, they truly show just how desperate they are for attention. Do you think that the same tired arguments against this champ are as pathetic as I do??!!
This stamina horse beats sprinters at 7f and his winning effort is mocked. Lets see that 70-1 shot go against SB in a 10f race and see where he ends up. He'd still be beind Shared Belief. The clueless just dont understand the concept of optimum distances per each individual horse. They dont get the point that even when Shared Belief is entered into races that he is absolutely not suited for as far distance is concerned, he still has the grit to win even if its by the skin of his teeth. He wins against those that are perfectly suited for that distance. A 70-1 shot comes in second in the Malibu. Oh my God!! Can you believe that a longshot actually ran a good race?! When does that ever happen??!! Just because the betting public disregards a horse at the windows doesnt mean he isnt primed and ready to run. But Shared Belief still beat him and he'd beat him again no matter what distance they ran.
The idea of putting any horse down for actually WINNING his races is about as absurd as one could get. Shared Belief is the ONLY one out of the great runners of 2014 that has won at every distance from 6f on up, even when most of those distances were not optimum for him. To consistently whine about a winning horse is about as low as whining about an unhealthy horse who loses races. It doesnt get much lower than that. The funny thing Slew, is that I log on here maybe once every 2 months, and it is the same old people posting the same nonsense about one of the best horses America has going. It makes me cringe.
I have been studying historical dosage for over 15 years. The addition of the Reines was the part of the puzzle that brought it all home and learning how to dissect it was the main ingredient to being able to read a colt like a book. It is used in conjunction with the Chefs and gives the broad picture of what a horse is truly built on by using numbers instead of names.Just as every 2 year old is assigned numbers from their chefs, they are also assigned numbers from their reines. There are formulas that translate these numbers into index and CD which is the least important numbers, the profile is what is important. When combined together, the true picture of the horse emerges.
Go to HRF-online.com. Small blog with great posters. I have many articles on the subject at this link below:
BTW, Bayern runs so true to his numbers that he should be the poster boy for Chef and Reines Dosage.
Same old stupid tired argument from the 1980's. Horses are made up of more than than just sires, hence the Reines Dosage profiles. Most colts inherit speed from their sires, the stamina comes from the Reines. California Chromes reines where dominant in the Professional Category (16+f), with the secondary in his brilliant category which gave him even more speed. Bayern's reines dominant in the Solid Category (13-14-15F), with the secondary in Classic distance. Shared Belief gained stamina from both his chefs and his Reines (even dominance in Solid and Professional) which gives credence to the fact the he is a standout who has not shown us everything he has yet.
What you would want to find in a perfect horse are those that use what they inherited from BOTH SIDES - not just one and those that far exceed what they inherited. Both Point Given and Secretariat gained their overabundance of speed from their Chefs and used their inherited stamina from their Reines. It is not a one way street. It is also not 1983 so get with it if you want to argue with me.
Most people who have a problem with dosage are those that do not understand it at all.
The more you post, the more you show just how clueless you really are. Shared Belief's Chef's profile is 2-2-6-2-0 (12) Index 1.40 CD .33 which translates into 12.2f as optimum distance from his Chefs.
His Reines profile is 0-3-6-8-8 (25) Index .23 CD Negative 1.04 which translates into an optimum distance of 15.3f from his reines. Total and complete stamina. The reason why he is in a class all his own is because he BEATS SPEEDSTERS and SPRINTERS at distances that he should not be thriving at against "so called" inferior horses who thrive at the distance at hand. Going against what he is built on is what makes him a standout. One that has not even had the opportunity to strut his stuff at the distance and surface that he most likely is most comfortable at. He is beating horses that he should not be beating. He wins 6-7-8-9-10f races and he is not built for it. A TRUE STANDOUT who goes against all the rules of pedigree and dosage.
You went against your own argument. Siting sires in his chart who who had success with producing 10 to 12f sons also brings the point home that SB going undefeated in his early career against speedsters who could not make a name for themselves as the distances got further because they were SPRINTERS goes against logic and makes SB stand out like a sore thumb.
I am done with you because the close minded, know it alls, who really have no clue about what they are actually witnessing, do not deserve any more time. Continue your quest of insulting a near perfect colt. You're really cool.
Ruffian, my post was was not directed to fans of California Chrome. It was directed to the handful of ridiculous negative comments posted as soon as Shared Belief entered the Winners Circle for his 8th time. Believe it or not, I too think Chrome is a hotshot and much deserving of any awards he receives. I meant no offense to any fans, especially to any fans who can recognize a standout like SB. He is the brunt of insults after every win by a handful of posters here who are blind to the fact that SB's accomplishments so far in his career go against what is in fact running in his veins regardless of who enters the gate with him. HOTY means little or nothing to me.
Buy yourself a book on Center of Distribution, another book on Reading Reines Charts and learn how to dissect a dosage profile. Maybe then I'll give you some time.
Hannah, you are a lost cause. Go read more from your "pedigree analysts". They are teaching you well.
I'll tell you why. Because Bayern inherited speed. He is a speed horse who is dominant in the classic distance with a great deal of male and female sprinters in his chart. He should "perform" at 7f with great ease. There is nothing out of the ordinary there. Same with Chrome. Shared Belief is a stamina horse with an optimum distance of 12.2f. He is loaded in stamina. Winning against sprinters is what separates him from the pack. He has ZERO sprinters in his chart and the reines side is so loaded in stamina that his true optimum distance rolls past the 16f mark. There is no comparison there at all.
