Why aren't they stretching him out? He ran great at 1 1/16th
Every breath is a blessing, especially with these athletes. We created the thoroughbred, we put their lives on the line every single day, and it's our job to protect them. It's incredibly sad to see what people will do to innocent animals when money is involved.
I hope so, the big guy has a lot of physical problems! I really hope nothing happens to him. It'd be awesome if he was able to recover like Animal Kingdom did.
He reminds me of palace malice! He ran a great in the belmont and now here he is winning impressively at a mile.
He ran beautifully on derby day, that's plenty of proof he doesn't need the slop.
So far exaggerator is the only horse that I have grown attached to this year, no other horse.. I am so glad he won the preakness and hope that he gets the belmont. Unfortunately there are so many horses that should've could've would've won the triple crown but just didn't. However, that is what makes the triple crown so very special especially in recent years. The derby is simply to blame, it's gotten so tough that it makes it impossible for even the best horses in the race to win.. there is so much that can go wrong in that race. That is why American Pharoah absolutely deserves to be considered one of the best of all time, he has accomplished something that so far no other horse has.
Plus who is to say Nyquist would have EVEN finished third if he had been forced to run a different running style/gotten mud in his face? That is asking a lot of a horse too.
Absolutely! I dare anyone here to try and sprint as fast as they can and then run a mile while keeping up a good pace... even though horses are far more amazing than we are it's not easy!!! Plus I heard the track was slow, could you imagine how fast they would have gone on a fast dry track?
This horse is not only talented but he has got guts! Reminds me of Animal Kingdom in some ways, far from perfect but still amazing to watch. How did he win the Preakness but not the derby? I guess he just needed one more race in him.
Lol actually he must be 28yrs old by now
