Unlike some people on this site I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong- so I'll do just that. The announcers after the race def made it sound like Rosie was too frustrated to talk with interviewers and just walked straight to the locker room. Maybe I misheard it. And to me- I have never seen a horse be full out with it's ears still pricked so if Rosie thinks she really ran her hardest then I'm shocked she did it while looking like she wasn't breaking a sweat because she didn't seem to be running her hardest to me. All in my opinion. I still love this filly, I still support the connections even though she didn't win. I still think she didn't disgrace herself and finished better than Ria Antonia in the Preakness, I still think this filly is head above the other fillies in her division, and I will end on this quote "it is easy to support those who succeed, but that is not what I am about"
Verrazano won in even more dominating fashion but tanked in the travers and dirt mile. I think Bayern should skip the travers, look for a mile prep race and run in the dirt mile.
First of all this is insanely annoying that you can't comment from the home page. Second of all, I completely disagree. The filly had her ears clearly pricked around the turn and down the stretch, Rosie had the whip out because she was trying to urge her to run harder, do you really think Rosie would have been such a poor sport and been so angry after the race if she ran hard but just lost to a horse she has already ridden and knows is insanely fast when things go his way? No. She was angry because she knows the filly is better than what she displayed today. Like I said- she didn't run her race. No excuses as to why though because she checked hard in the mother goose and still won easily and she has been wide in a lot of her races (kentucky oaks) and still won easily. This horse has run with lightning fast paces and won before so It wasn't the pace. No excuse because she just didn't show up today for whatever reason. Say what you want but that was not her absolute best effort for sure
I'm sorry, have what wrong? I clearly saw her ears pricked and not running as hard as she can on my HD 70 inch tv. Watched it three times actually to be sure. She clearly didn't show up today- which is probably why Rosie was so angry she didn't want to comment after the race. I hardly think Untapable disgraced herself
Just didn't fire- and no excuses for her. She still ran down the stretch with her ears pricked- didn't seem to be full out at all. Really stinks because she could have really finished well if she actually ran hard. But I also don't think any horse was beating Bayern today once he had the lead. I hardly think she disgraced herself though- it's not like she finished dead last like Ria Antonia. She still finished well for not putting in any run whatsoever
Once I saw Bayern get the lead I knew it was over. He ran a nice race today. He reminds me a lot of game on dude- pure speed and can dominate any horse if he gets alone on the lead. Dangerous horse! Congrats to Baffert he's a good guy and I like him as a trainer
