Great show guys! I am so torn on who I would want to win the classic. I respect beholder and love code and pharoah. I can't pick one over the other on my sentimental win. A win from all three would be excellent in my book- and I believe each would deserve to win it. It will be a great race for sure! I hope all three make it to the race, stay healthy, and all three run their race.
Yep it is still great honors. All I said was that it's a shame for those connections who could have had a shot at Hoty if ap was born a different year. That's all. Never said they deserved it OVER ap. just said they are all really good horses who could have earned it in a different year
I never said what a shame is was he won the TC. I was one of the few people on this site saying he WOULD do it after the AK derby and have followed him since he was a Two year old. Don't put words in my mouth. What I said was its a shame there are some other great horses this year- who could have had a shot at winning horse of the year had AP been born a different year. No one is a bigger AP fan than I am- but I am just as big of a honor code fan, and have a lot of respect for beholder and shared belief. And the three of them could have earned Hoyt in a year where AP wasn't around- I believe that are good enough. And yes this year has been great (again I already said that in my earlier post) but we have had lots of downs- lady Eli fighting for her life, the palace malice fans who didn't get to see him return to form, the retirement of some great horses, chrome and shared belief getting sidelined- along with firing line, but that's horse racing! But don't tell me you didn't have one ounce of disappointment this year- especially after some Great ones got injured.
Zenyatta, blind luck (watch her Kentucky oaks win), dialed in, honor code, Sullivan will tell you all about silky Sullivan, and many others I can't think of now after a twelve hour day
For everyone who has him picked to win Saturday- who thinks he wil be eased up again? And who thinks he will be asked to run hard? And who thinks he will run sub 2 min flat to beat the track record?
This made me laugh out loud
It is a shame that horses like shared belief, honor code, and beholder will all miss out on horse of the year- but I am thankful that 2015 has proved to be one of the best years of racing in recent memory. Chrome is still special to all of us- and his owners taking a shot in Dubai was awesome. Shared belief running him down in the San Antonio was a great way to start the year. Jess's dream and Rachel's Valentina with first time out wins is phenomenal- I hope coz is able to put himself together to get a w as well. Just been a really fun year of racing with many ups and downs but a lot of fun races!
And clearly you also need grammar lessons- or maybe just some glasses because the words IN THIS RACE were never said. I am copying and pasting your exact post:
"You do realize she ran I believe the second fastest time ever at the distance and easily could have won by another 5"
No where did you say in that race. so you just made yourself look like an even bigger idiot and jerk. Congrats
Baffert already said it today- he hopes she is his first date!
