I'm confused... was it 9 or 11 1/2 lengths? So far I really like this filly and I loved how Joel Rosario rode her very patiently and didn't touch her with the whip.. and if he did it was minimal.
Oh yes definitely! the moment he was seen the crowd roared.. didn't really hear that for any other horse. It was awesome! he certainly deserves it.
My main concern was Moreno... I was wondering why he wasn't there challenging Bayern throughout the race. Also I don't care if it was done on purpose or not, obviously when horses are DQ'd usually.. you don't consider that.. He interfered with all the horses to his inside.. thankfully it wasn't a disaster.
I believe Bayern didn't even make it to a mile in the travers... I still say Bayern can go 1 1/4 it just depends where and the circumstances. I never thought Bayern would win the travers, but I think he can win 1 1/4.. it just depends.
Yeah a sprinter that won the fastest 1 1/16 san diego handicap with plenty left. If he was really struggling at the end then I'd say yeah maybe.. but he wasn't. And that is how he almost won the awesome again. It was a fantastic idea to put him in this race at this time, and I thought it before the race even though I love shared belief..
Shared belief proved he could have a very tough trip and still win. If he was not given such a hard time, he would have beaten fed biz easily with a much faster time. After all he ran the longest race... Now if shared belief is given this much difficulty in the classic, then yeah I'd say it will be very hard for him to win. Hopefully jockeys won't be playing so many games in the big one, and mike smith will probably keep his eye's peeled.
Fed biz is better than many seem to think! so far he has ran great this year. Fastest san diego handicap and ran a good second behind goldencent's record breaking time at del mar, I wasn't surprised.
I agree that 1:58 typically is an impressive time. Though in the Gran Premio de Honor he barely won by the tip of his nose and the other horses weren't that far behind. My question has been, how good are Argentina horses?? He's fairly aggressive and will probably be sprinting again whether there is a horse there to challenge him or not, at least that seems to always be his running style. It'll be interesting to find out how he does! He'll have high odds again probably which could be fun.
On September 12, Cozmic One breezed 4f in 49:50 on fast dirt at Belmont Park finishing 14/26.
Won by 11 lengths on august 3rd at Saratoga in race 7 going 5 1/2 f 22.03 45.11 57.25 1:03.82. Hope this link works...
Lol yeah, Coburn is just bitter and being a bit irrational. It's obvious that fresh horses aren't the problem even though they sure don't make things easy.
