Nice! I was half expecting him to be retired, but if Frank is anything, he's a sportsman. No Gun Runner (after January), no Arrogate, no Chrome, and the 3 y/o division in disarray, he could rack up a couple more G1s next year. I would guess the Pegasus is next.

He's a nice horse for sure and I was glad to read that he will stay in training. I agree that he could really clean up in the handicap division next season.

This guy is the Nick Alexander homebred who survived and thrived after a very troubled birth. I don't remember if this was posted here already, but this is his backstory for those who haven't read it.

Love this horse and, IIRC, today was his first try on the grass. Looks like he likes it. :D
He also appears to have what I think is called 'gullastra plume.' He looks like a bay from the front, but sort of like a chestnut from the rear, as his tail is a pale mix of greys and browns. Cool horse.

OK. I'm going to be interested to see how BB does with a true "older horse." Masochistic is a speedster with a few miles on him and, IIRC, he's not entirely easy to keep together.

What do you consider Hoppertunity if not an older horse? What was Game On Dude?

Yes, of course those two are technically "older," but Masochistic is about to be eight. I think that would give him a couple more years of wear and tear than either Hop or Da Dude.
I do hope he does well with B-Squared...which IMHO is Baffert & Barnes. :P ;)

Hopper is about to turn 7, Masochistic is only a year older. Game On Dude ran during his 7th year.
