Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

From Baffert and Sadler: http://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/so-whos-horse-of-the-year-baffert-sadler/ My take on it is that it is incredibly difficult to win the Triple Crown and he made it look easy. i don't think we watched the same preakness, i'll go rewatch it because i clearly missed somethi...

How long until Improbable is retired to stud? ;)
City Zip is not nearly as fashionable as Scat Daddy.
kind of a shame, CZ has really put his mark on the breed. are his sons not doing well at stud?

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

all that argument gives him is 3 yr old hoty, which he deserves since really, this crop had no exceptional standout (hard to beat a TC). hoty is open to all ages. since he didn't put on a hoty performance (stayed in restricted races and vanished after four months, 6 races, and 2 "wow we don't like t...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

Accelerate looks wonderful... against the competition he was running against. Let's face it. If you wait until the better horses are retired, you must be the best out there. He couldn't beat them if he ran against them. Then the greed of the owners got Justify retired. Hand it to Accelerate's owner...

Re: Stallion News

blame his race record on the absolutely baffling racing schedule and shipping he endured.
edit: oops, you said that. my bad. i agree, he was absolutely better than what he showed, and i'm impressed he menaged as well as he did.

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

if what accelerate did was easy, why haven't more horses done it? you're saying the TC is hard (and it is) but acting like it's the EXCLUSIVE hard thing in racing, when it isn't. it's just the one with the most publicity. and justify coming after AP so soon IS NOT THE ISSUE. you type a lot but you d...

Re: Stallion News

When I toured Ashford last summer, he was the only stallion they let us pet. He is very friendly, a real ham. That's nice to hear. I never realized his coat was so dark; he's almost black. Sorry to hear about I Want Revenge. He reminds me of the hard-luck Dollar Bill. i don't see any brown in his f...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

Had Justify won the Triple Crown in 2014, he'd be Horse of the Year. But since AP already did it in 2015, he gets penalized since we already saw AP do it. that's definitely not even close to why i'd choose accelerate over him. this year, accelerate was more impressive. this spring, justify was. i d...

I was expecting the Pegasus. The Cigar Mile is a surprise. I love AOB and for the most part admire his operation. I love this horse and feel he hasn't had the best chance to shine .

Re: Stallion News

While that's good news for California breeders, it doesn't seem to be a positive commentary on his Japanese breeding career. :oops: Big Red Farm paid $10 million for him, and now they're shipping him back to California after only five seasons? I doubt that $10 million exchanged hands this time. :? ...
