So you are saying that Cigar was a fraud?



Or Zenyatta?

I don't want to speak for Apollo but I do remember getting the idea from his posts that he holds Triple Crown race participants in high regard. I'm guessing then a different set of criteria for a mare but I'd only be guessing.

Arrogate is also not a front runner so surely he's doomed.

Any word on how Arrogate is doing the last few days? I saw a brief video on Twitter of him jogging. I wonder if Bob has a new training regimen in place? I also wonder why he has been trained to break slowly and come from behind when one of his best races he was near/ on the lead in the Travers? Would like to see him get his speed back again...

Some commentator on TVG thought he should work solo a few times rather than breaking off well behind workmates. I might try working him from the gate, too. There is such a thing as being too relaxed!

But really, that race was just too bad to explain.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Baffert says he prefers to stay home and run in the Pacific Classic Aug 19th....BUT.....if he thinks Arrogate needs an extra week to be 100% then he'd ship to the Woodward Stakes on Sept 2nd.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Since I will be at Saratoga for the Woodward, would be a nice surprise

Arrogate just now 4f in 47 and change on Baffert watch, out 5f in 1:00.31. BB broke into a wide smile and dabbed

Hopefully he rebounds in the Pac Classic, though he did look good working prior to his lackluster race, so who knows. I'd be happy to tear up a ticket when he beats me though. I was kind of hoping he'd go to the Spa though since I'll be there Woodward day. I probably won't get a chance to see him live before he retires (unless the Pegasus race is run at SA next year because I might be in SoCal then).

He was the fastest of 21 works too (47:20 was official time). I hope xbtv has a video of it soon :)
