I'm not anti-whip like some people here/elsewhere are... but there is no need ever to whack a horse that many times. I mean, you really think a horse that's all out is gonna benefit from being whi...

Re: Will American Pharoah win the Triple Crown?

Agreed, although I could never get behind California Chrome. He's certainly athletic and talented in his own right, but he's never seemed mentally mature to me (which I think is very important). He seemed to win because of his athleticism and raw physical talent, but I think the mental aspect is vit...

Re: Will American Pharoah win the Triple Crown?

I don't want to say yes or no here, and I don't feel comfortable enough in any answer to vote, but I do have some opinions about what AP has shown us both in the Derby, and before: a) For those harping on the slow time, that really does not concern me.
