I don't know why, but I'm like oh great, not him too.

Thankfully it wasn't that serious.

That was my initial thought too.

I also enjoy how Chrome's stat line is 1-0-1-1. Maths is hard.

Awright, I'll admit I'm a huge fan of the big fellow.
The preps have been pretty boring this year, with the exception of the Robbie Lewis.

Do you mean San Felipe?

How can you not like him? The one picture on Bloodhorse where he towers over Bob Baffert is priceless.

No, I meant the Robbie Lewis. The Felipe was a nice field, but in the Lewis you got to see a horse figuring things out in a great stretch duel.

This horse is really growing on me and idk why. I was never a Big Brown fan. Maybe he reminds me of Point Given with the bright red coat, size, build, the way he moves on the track and Baffert being his trainer. I think his stable mate has more potential to be that type of talented though. Feels like 2001 with Baffert and having two talented and top Derby horses. Pretty cool.

Wire to wire win in the Santa Anita Derby. I LOVE this horse from the time of his maiden win which I coincidentally watched because of another horse in the race that we had seen at Saratoga. If he should win the Kentucky Derby, I believe he would be only the 2nd undefeated horse to do so - the first being Seattle Slew.
