Although I agree that the dirt mile has taken great horses away from the classic... I still can't help but think back to Goldencents. Also could Liams map beat American Pharaoh? I say nah .. going from 8 to 10 furlongs is a huge jump. Even if he could go 10 furlongs... most horses would fail trying that. Could he have made the race more interesting and difficult? Well Mr. Z has tried that before. Plus why would the owners be interested at all in doing that if they're smart... and want their horse to succeed.
If the BCC was at santa anita this year I would say definitely... but it's not. Personally I think she should aim towards the distaff this year... then next year go to del mar for the classic. Of course shes probably gonna be retired after this year... Eh still... maybe see how she trains at keeneland then make the decision.
Hope this guy gets figured out, he's impressive.
Sad... seems like the moment she gets dirt in her face she. is. done. lol
Though I'd like to see her sprint... maybe 5f-7f?
Ahh yeah okay, you mean he's more aggressive.. in a good way? hes just amazing to watch... his stride is huge I wonder how long it is... it seems like he doesn't waste an inch of ground.
Nah he's just concentrating and listening to the rider... California Chrome's ears are almost always pricked yet he will rip people apart :P
...but I don't think Chrome is a mean horse, he just has been able to push people around. Who knows why American Pharoah has better ground manners, maybe the people around him are just better around horses.
I'd like to see cozmic one break good then take the lead or be off the pace going 5 furlongs to start off with. Obviously with those workout times he has gotten speed... but he broke slow and got all the dirt in his face and was so slow in that last race and showed NO speed!!!!! John Shirreffs still trying to make him run zenyatta's running style??? It would be interesting to see Coz be trained by someone like Bob Baffert
RIP Ruffian, the horse that should be remembered as THE greatest of all time. Instead we are stuck with the what could have and should have been, this extremely bitter heartbreaking and unfinished story forever. We will never see one like her again, she is truly incredible.
Yep, well we know he likes at least 5f at Belmont park which is very good news! I'm excited, hopefully he breaks on top and doesn't get dirt in his face
Yeah I agree, especially with the way he is working right now. Hopefully he will break fine... It would also be good if they were working him with company.
