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.
On July 2nd Cozmic One breezed 5 furlongs on fast dirt at Belmont Park in 1.00:80 finishing 1/11
He is getting faster! I think that he is ready for his next start. Too bad we can't see him work.
Hope they run him on the dirt again!
It has been forever!!! Pletcher horses never seem to last though
None of the triple crown winners compare to Secretariat, he was supernatural.
I was so excited when he won the Arkansas derby faster than Bodemeister and so EASY too!!! and bodemeister was so talented.
Also the derby was faster this year than last year, and California Chrome then went on to win a Preakness as fast as the best! Plus I almost thought American Pharoah was Animal Kingdom with how wide he was. He ran a long race, remember how shared belief only won by a nose? If Pharoah had firing line's trip it would have been faster and he would have won by more ... and probably easily too.
It's really unfortunate that he doesn't have much experience. He's very talented, but he was immature enough as it is going into the derby and then additionally getting post 3.. incredible that he was good enough to get 6th.
I agree but I think American Pharoah is even better than Bodemeister which I didn't even know was possible. In his last start he showed that he can relax early and stalk, that is something Bodemeister couldn't seem to do very well. It's almost impossible to wire the Kentucky Derby, and it is incredible that Bodemeister almost did it with those blistering fractions. Also if you watch them side by side in the Arkansas Derby his time was even faster than Bodemeister, and he wasn't even asked. Bodemeister was also whipped a few times in the stretch, American Pharoah effortlessly took off all on his own.
I take it that he will come back in the fall at the earliest. I wouldn't get my hopes up though! He probably won't be raced until next year. Maybe longer! With a gelding, you can take all the time in the world.
