It is not common, but it happens occasionally. Evidently it is OK if the mare is healthy. I'm just wondering how far along she is in the pregnancy.
I knew you were going to say that! :)
That's silly, no one knows how a horse will run in a 1 1/2 mile race the first time
Agreed, this is not the way to showcase greatness. If AP is as good as Baffert & the Zayats think he is, they need to let him prove it.
How can American Pharaoh break any track records when they ease him up when he gets a big lead?

I agree, but most are unwilling or unable to compare AP to Secretariat. Perhaps too much emotional attachment to Secretariat.
We will never know how great he is if they keep easing him when he gets a big lead. Just have to enjoy what we get.
Texas Red is a nice horse, but I don't see him beating AP anytime, anywhere
Really, Brian, a lot of people here seem to think that the supervillians are the Zayats, Bob Baffert and Victor Espinoza. If AP can win despite them, Frosted and the Monster girls, he will indeed be a Super Horse!
