In my belief, it would be a crime if a horse other than California Chrome took this award. California Chrome captured the minds and imaginations of not only hardcore racing fans, but the general public as well. California Chrome was brilliant in the Triple Crown scores, and a strong ambassador for horse racing alike. Who couldn't feel inspired by this underdog horse with a $2,000 stud and a small farm background? California Chrome is simply the most popular, most influential horse of the season.
I have always been a bit of a Shared Belief skeptic, but I've started to get excited about him after watching the Los Alamitos Derby.
Shared Belief vs California Chrome. Who would win in a match race? They are both outstanding!
Why the name change?
Not to be a nitpicker, (I love this article), but Curlin did not win the 2007 Haskell. He finished behind Any Given Saturday.
Kobe's Back had no chance from the beginning. He broke slowly and, while trying to catch up with the field, went extremely wide around the first turn. The bad start was suicide for a fast horse like him.
Will Take Charge will take charge of the older horse division if he can beat both Mucho and Game on Dude in the Santa Anita Handicap.
Any concerns that Shared Belief won't be able to handle the dirt?
Has anyone heard anything about her 2013 filly? A name, maybe? I just want to make sure she's OK, I haven't been able to find anything about her. :(
Wow. We are not eight days into 2014, and we have already lost such great horses as Caixa Electronica and Laughing. On the bright side, it can only get better than this!
