I don't give him any chance of beating Nyquist in the Preakness

That was a good one.

It was an interesting race.

As fast as they went for the first quarter they must have dropped anchor in the 2nd and 3rd splits cause Exaggerate went from a long way off them to sitting on their hammer for most of the race.

It will be interesting to read how the experts analyse the race.

Songbird has failed in her attempt to remain undefeated and gone down by a nose to Beholder, a 6yo mare with an impressive record herself (30 starts for 20 wins and 7 placings and more prizemoney than Songbird).

Songbird is on the rails.

California Chrome is the $1.75 favourite for the Breeders Cup Classic this morning at 11.35 a.m. AEDT. Arrogate, who won by 13.5 lengths last start, is the prominent second favourite.

The TABs do not seem to be covering the race  :what:

Yeah they weren't up early this morning Auth.

What a race! Champ looked home for all money but the young up and coming grey got up in the last 50m to signal a handover of the baton given Chromies imminent retirement.

6 starts for 5 wins and a second for Arrogate now and Juddmonte has said he will continue as a 4yo.

Replay is on the tab.com.au web site - well worth a look.   emthup

Gun Runner goes out with a bang

Gun Runner was pressed at the top of the stretch but his class shone through as he made it five consecutive Grade I wins in the second running of the US$16m Pegasus World Cup Invitational (1m 1/8f) at Gulfstream Park on Saturday.

The recently crowned North American Horse Of The Year started the even-money favourite and was challenged strongly by West Coast off the final turn but pulled away to score by 2 1/2-lengths. The third home Gunnevera trailed a further 10 3/4-lengths behind the winner.

Trainer Steve Asmussentold ESPN it was an emotional victory.

"It's very emotional being his last race after everything he's done for us - it's the cherry on the top this one," Asmussen said.

"For him to come through everything like he did today, we're just so proud of the horse.

"What a dream come true he is, he's improved with every opportunity that he got, even when he didn't have success he moved forward.

“He's just a special individual and we're so blessed to be in his presence. This memory will be with us forever. What a special horse."

Jockey Florent Geroux said he felt the horse had a point to prove.

“This feeling is hard to describe, it's a dream come true,” Geroux said. “We wanted the horse to prove that the Breeder's Cup and all of last year was not a fluke and the horse was there, in only one word, the horse was unbeatable.”

The five-year-old Gun Runner now retires to stud with earnings of US$15,988,500 having won 12 of his 19 starts.
