Wonder if Nakatani lost the mount. Baze will be on board Monday.
Well maybe not just one race - unless we're talikng Dubai.
Dont have access to that info airedale, but I'm sue goblin has a better idea. I remember reading that from the Legends book. But Bid ran nine races as a 4 yo to earn $1,118,000. Chrome can earn 2-3 times that much in just one race. Hopefully inflation is part of the equation.
icyhotboo - Not to be defending Mallios or anything you understand, but in all fairness to the content of his comment, only the first sentence has anything to do with God. The "insight" you say he expressed is simply the result of knowing how to read. What his personal relationship is with God is not for you or anyone else to judge.
SJ's legs were like gummy worms in the stretch. Sure, the had similar streaks in their TC run. But that's where the similarities end. He was not half the specimen - in any aspect - that California Chrome is. Enough of the comparisons already!
Not to get too far off track here...but God no more takes sides in human sports than he does in human conflicts.
Thanks goblin. Same here, just a news source. But I do get a kick out of the abuse Beyer takes everytime he writes an article about Chrome.
We all get there sometime!! :)
Yes, it was long. Sorry if it hurt your head to read so much. I'll keep this one short and not confuse you with any facts. I calls 'em as I sees 'um. Given O'Neil's reputation, he does not get the benefit of the doubt with me. Putting a shoe on an injured foot to get a horse back in training is reckless. Remain ignorant of that fact if that is your 'pick'. BTW - no, I'm not a 'kid'. But conversations like this does remind me of the advantages it has over being senile!
Mary & shooker - Am I a kid???...hmmm, now there's a relevant question. Can't imagine relevant to what, though. But anyway, we all know (well, most of us) where O'Neill & Reddam's main focus is. Qualifying for the Kentucky Derby was priority. Had this colt been taken to a layoff facility, he most likely would not have developed laminitis. Instead he was traumatized a 2nd time in an attempt to load him on a plane. Then he was taken back to the track and confined in a stall and from what O'Neil himself said, he had a bruise which the farrier covered with a shoe and they then tried to put him back in training. You call this simply "aiming toward the Derby"?? Bond Holder was injured on the 19th of February and scratched then from the race. He wasn't sent to a clinic until March 6. That certainly smells like Derby fever to me, with a stink of the worst kind. There's always sorrow after the fact so you can fall for that dribble from O'Neil & co. - if you think that is the 'grown up' thing to do. All I'm pointing out is the contrast between the care and concern given to Shared Belief by a true horseman and what could have happened in the hands of low-life connections thinking only of themselves.
