Re: Arrogate

It does seem mental to me. Maybe that Dubai win hurt more than it looked and he doesn't want to exert himself that hard again, I think he could've won that race if he really wanted to.

Re: Zenyatta News

Sad. I wonder if one of them retains rights to the racing stable, the breeding stock and/or they get to pick and choose? I honestly have half wondered if this is why Coz is still training/running. He's an asset to be divided in the divorce (which tbh, he needs to be gelded and made into a nice hunt...

Re: Whitney (G1)

Steve Asmussen said the Woodward here on 9/2 is a real possibility for Gun Runner. Would give him 9 weeks to the BC Classic. A possible for Arrogate too... which would be good for NYRA. Doesn't everybody want that? At least Baffert knows Arrogate likes Saratoga. Del Mar??? Don't know about Del Mar ...

Re: Zenyatta News

Sorry to hear they are divorcing, kind of surprised even though it looked like they were divesting their interest in their stock, the guy is 82 (why bother?), gonna assume he's got something else going on - glad to see Ann will keep updating on Z. Regardless of what's going on, they really have been...

Re: Ziconic

Is there a replay somewhere? Calracing.com has all CA replays for free the day after the race. Some, but not always all, can also be found on Bloodhorse sometime after as well: https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/race/USA/DMR/2017/8/2/4/race-4-msw-at-dmr-on-8-2-17 By coincidence they had Zenyat...

Re: Ziconic

this little guy is killing me - so close today - really wanted to see him do it - but he was trying. He was trying :( , just too far back and goes too wide for a horse his size I think, I do think he looks better on dirt if he gets another chance. How many times do they try before giving up? Have n...

Re: Ziconic

I think putting him back on dirt and a mile is good for him if they can get him out of the gate running, not sure he was as suited for grass as everyone thought just because competition may have looked easier(?). While neither of Z's sons proved to be the horse a fan of her may have dreamed of, I do...

Whatever it was, he looked more like a 'racehorse' at least. I hope he breaks his maiden in next out and maybe tries dirt again after that if the change in attitude wasn't due to surface.

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Hey, he actually showed some interest today! That's what I was thinking, maybe there's hope for the guy to get a few wins if he doesn't go back on the shelf for 2 more years - so completely different than his first 2 races. Well, his next race is likely going to be at least 3 months and a dozen wor...

He seems to be channeling his mom today, but not expecting much after 2 years off given his first 2 races.

Re: Arrogate

Just watched the head on replay, not sure why Smith continued in behind El Huerfano who was all over the place, also didn't look like Arrogate appreciated the kick back or being asked to make up that much ground, like he said 'look, I really don't want to do that again', appeared to not appreciate M...
