I don't know, I think Arrogate's A race wins this by a pole and his B race still wins it or gets close. He had a substantially worse trip than Collected in the Pacific Classic and still only missed by a bit, with a Beyer that exceeded all but one of Gun Runner's- and we still don't know how Gun Runner will finish at 10f (or in California, I haven't really seen it mentioned that his Dirt Mile at Santa Anita last year was not one of his better efforts).

I really can't figure out what to do with Collected, because a win wouldn't surprise me but neither would a poor finish. His best race puts him right up there but I have this nagging feeling that he fired his best shot in the Pacific Classic.

On the one hand I hope Arrogate wins. It would be amazing if he could become the first horse to capture the DWC and the BCC in the same year, and it could mean a legit series for olders... PWC, DWC, BCC (I'm still set on that order :lol: ) but on the other hand there's quite a few horses in here that are easy to root for.

Thank you, Treve. I'm hearing the sound of a lot of jaws dropping. :-)

Didn't know you were such a big GR fanboy, Bal. He's such a superstar!
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

You didn't know? LOL! Surely you jest, or you didn't read the thread I started on him.

I probably did know, at some point, but I've long forgotten...like most things. :D Been in and out a lot the past year or so. But hey! High five! I love him SO much and I'm so glad he's getting his time to shine.

Gun Runner will most certainly be HOY off this win. What an impressive win, getting dogged all the way round by Collected, then digging in and pulling away. GR has some grit.
Collected surprised me again, I really thought he was an 8-9 furlong horse.

I never would have had that one.

Don't like seeing that trainer celebrating.
