|California chrome has done everything asked of him|
we will see today if he goes into the history book as one of the greats.
IF I was to seriously consider a challenger, it would firstly be a fresh horse like tonalist.
|Unlike last year's Belmont Stakes nothing really sticks out at me.|
4 mtp and I've decided to sit and watch.
Good luck to all.

|very disturbing for me to see that|
I hope it is not serious and that there was not deliberate attempt to injure the horse on the part of the jockeys
|Probably happened in the first stride or two out of the gate. Inasmuch as injuries go -- generally not that serious and they do recover with time off. Horses are individuals and some actually do win races with same or similar injury. |
Dead heat 4th within -- what?? -- 2L after 12F. If clean trip/no injury is he 2L better than that? Hard to say.
Imo, owner's post race comments a complete embarrassment for the sport. Win or lose -- a true sportsman -- congratulates the winner for being better that day. I'm a big believer that anyone can handle winning. That's easy. How we handle adversity is what defines us.
