I read this blog every day but certainly do not post nearly enough, but I had to post on this one. KUDOS! to the connections for keeping a great race horse in training - this is what the game is about! Will be rooting for this one to keep winning and keep her amazing career going.
Don't think either of those 2 would have been the biggest threat to beat him
I also noticed in his races, espinoza is able to gear him down so much that he is able to stop right after the wire, giving the impression other horses are galloping out past him but in face chrome consistently slows down to the wire in every race, no because he's tired, but because he wins the race at the sixteenth pole. This horse is incredible to watch and the easiest horse to root for.
Horses don't get perfect trips for no reason - perfect trips usually come to horses who have enough tactical speed to put them in position to get them
I think I've stated on this site before, but I'll state again. ROC does not have the tactical speed necessary to get a good trip from the 19th post. He is a nice horse who looks like he can run all day but he is a grinder. Borels choices were to go to the rail and save all the ground and hope something opened up or go 5-6wide the entire race. I personally think he did the right thing. ROC was doomed when he got his post, not one bit the fault of Borel - he did a really good job to get this horse 7th.
I think danza will end up being better
good decision - not good for the wagering parimutuels of the preakness
I think chitu could be competitive in the BC Dirt Mile - he ran a nice race in the derby
Hope he starts getting nicer mares - this one clearly has plenty of potential as a stallion - By Pulput who has proved to be an excellend sire of sires.
Has Golden Soul hit the board since his 2nd in the Derby? I'm not positive but I dont think so - not sure if this one is much better. However, he did make an excellent appearance in the post parade and ran a very nice 2nd - more impressive than Golden Soul's - I agree here - save him for the belmont.
