He failed miserably as a sire in Australia... :?

I guess that helps to explain why he's now standing in New York.

Caleb on TVG just said that Justify now weighs 1,300 lbs. :shock:
I guess when Baffert said the colt was 'an eating machine,' he wasn't kidding. :lol:

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

I didn't see anything concerning when I watched the video that bloodhorse has of today's gallop.

I think it's time for some people to put the microscope back on the shelf and give it a break. Even if/when there's nothing there, it can get to the point where "something" will be found, even when that "something" is in reality nothing.

"Just shut up and dole out your $$" doesn't work for me. :)

Evaluating conformation etc. is an individual subjective thing. Even a hangnail on a foot can change your movement, etc. People see what they see, and unless you are an expert then other people's perceptions are valid.

A horse can be "off" and still win. It happens every day all throughout the land. But that doesn't meana they're not "off" and people who evaluate hind quarters, etc. may notice something that you do not. If you've had a horse with a bruise, and you are used to being with him/her every day, then you may notice something that others don't, etc.

Wasn't Arrogate supposed to be okay then he wasn't?
