Don't think anyone is expecting Chrome's A game in the Classic against the best horses in the nation, not off of one race in almost five months. I would think his resume is a done deal for this year. But if Shared Belief was to dominate in two powerhouse performances against the best older horses in the Pacific and BC Classic remaining undefeated, who knows!
Still, his popularity and accomplishments may already have sewn up 3yo honors for Chrome.
Really looking forward to their 4yo season.
No doubt all questions will be answered then!
We'll see how it goes.
Goal for both is the BCC. Shared Belief in the Pacific Classic and likely the Los Al mile on Sept 20th or the Awesome Again on the 27th for Chrome.
Bravo HRN !!
mallios. Wouldn't be fitting to leave without saying a personal farewell to my # 1 fan from day one, as if you'd have it any other way. I understand that if this site was ever to shut down your world would come to a screeching halt. But as evidenced here (as usual), your arguments, excuses and utter nonsense along with your trademark whining and desperate pleas for support places you at the core of the problem - since you are the farthest thing from a solution.Only YOU would call having multiple personality disorders and carrying on conversations with yourself through different accts, "just chatting"! And endless conversations of grown men attacking and calling each other fags, "just getting things off their chest"! You never cease to amaze, right down to the last. Yes, I've had a few bouts on here. But I've never expressed pride in my shortcomings the way you do, and regretted those conversations as I've made very clear. You play with pigs and you're going to get muddy. They were not "OK" with me. Your idea of "passion and reality" is nothing more than gutter trash. If you ever decide to raise your standards someday you might just realize that. Or take as an example the many on here who can express their passion with respect and maturity...even the "kids"! You have a very distorted view of what it means to be an adult. Good luck to you.
Wow!...Fellers, it's been great conversing with you - and you know who you are. But this website is a festering sore, a disgraceful representation of the sport for what it allows without mediation. HRN, you certainly know how to throw out the welcome mat to all the new racing fans Chrome is bringing in. Hopefuly they will recognize your diseased website as I have for what it is, and move along. Goblin, maybe I'll cross paths with you on BH. I'm out!
Don't know about 100 years, but to my memory beginning back in the 70's I'd have to go with Chick Anderson and Marshall Cassidy. Probably because of the quality of the horses that ran during their time. I think that's at least half of reason those calls were so memorable!
Check out these stats - 11 TC winners...11 failed attempts in the Belmont since Affirmed...11 horses in this year's Belmont - which happens to be, you guessed it, race 11...11 wins from pp 2...Oh, and did I mentiomn this is the 146th Belmont? 1+4+6?..What does this all mean??...I have no idea! But it could be as simple as 1+1...# 2!! Haven't heard anything mentioned about security this year. Just seems all about good vibes. But it's hard to forget the snipers that lined the Belmont rooftop back in 08. Darker times I suppose.
Thanks for the correction on that quote, airedale. She certainly was all that. The equine vet that reminded me of it also pointed out the class difference between Lauren's and Moody Jolley's comment after Ruffian broke down, "We pushed the b-tch and she came unbuckled.". Just hearing that about a horse I never knew made my stomach sick. Would have loved to experience a once in a lifetime filly like that, very unlikely I will see another. Then I think too, that it may just as well have put an end to my interest in the sport- for some time anyway.
That's so that 20 years from now they can sell them for $10 on ebay. That's why I say collecting today is a joke. Everything is overkill. A year ago I bought Ghostzapper's well worn halter from his championship 4 yo season for $375. Then missed the opportunity to purchase Bid's halter for $1200; still kick myself over that one. But that's the kind of stuff that increases in value, not stuff sold as collector's items straight off the shelf.That's just marketing the gullible.
