Re: California Chrome

Why would Taylor say anything at all about Chrome being a bad stallion? Isn't this like me losing weight on a diet and then hyping said diet? I know that reading is a rather tricky thing, but I never said anything about his lines in terms of him being a good horse/potential stallion - the horse's b...

Re: California Chrome

His breeding sucks. I'm sure if he came from sexier lines bringing him back might not have been as viable. Our benefit, in any event. Actually, it doesn't. Top and bottom are excellent -- if you skip mom and dad. They said the same about John Henry's breeding. But if they skipped one on him, he had...

Re: California Chrome

I don't think it was being said in a negative way. No need to act like they are dumb! They were just wanting to know why he looked weird. The angle and lens used does make his head/neck look abnormally large compared to some other shots of him from the same angle. http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/96...

Crown him. American Pharoah joins John Henry as the only horses to win the HOY #EclipseAward by unanimous vote, getting all 261 ballots.

never thought I'd ever see a TC winner. He did it so effortlessly that it was almost underwhelming. What a hoss.
