He's banking on Chrome winning the BC Classic, since that's Saturday night and his dam sells two nights later. Couldn't get the iron any hotter, I'm sure he's thinking--and he'd be right.

So yeah, probably a really high reserve :lol:

If she is sold to international buyers, the internet is going to be really fun the few days after the sale.

i'm almost hoping she is. chrome ran well on turf*, so maybe sending her to more grass oriented stallions will be good for her.

* i understand chrome's a freak and that the field was meh and blahblah but, i'm still curious.

He beat Lexie Lou pretty soundly, she's not too shabby.
Talco and Flamboyant both turned out to be pretty solid stakes horses.
In hindsight that Hollywood Derby was better than we gave it credit.

i didn't even go back over it, mostly i just covered arguments against his turf race that i imagined would pop up. you're right, that was a pretty impressive bunch, now that i look at those names. it makes me even more hopeful she heads to japan.

If you want to read :roll:-worthy internet comments, go to the Bring Chrome Home page on Facebook. It never disappoints. You'll give yourself a pair of black eyes from banging your face against your desk and/or closest wall over and over and over again :lol:

I've been going back and forth on if Coolmore will buy her for Galileo and co. Part of me says they may be interested and another part says her family isn't good enough. I think she'll be in the price range for the Japanese though so that could be interesting. Especially if you like the "OMG! THEY EAT ALL THEIR HORSES!?!?!?@?#?!#@!2432312232!~" comments.

I'm about 99.9% sure the Japanese will get her but hey good for them! They seem to love the bloodlines that the breeders in the US don't really want.

To be fair, Love the Chase doesn't really fall into the "why are we getting rid of that mare's pedigree?" group of others the Japanese have bought. It's a decent pedigree but not one that would bring a lot if California Chrome wasn't there. I could see Mandy going for her though and if she gets involved, she may chase them away.
