Comebackers and Dating

Posted by on 11/9/2015 8:21:07 PM

Two superstars of the sport have started the long journey back to racing recently and there is some dating news out of Kentucky that will entice the most attractive equine bachelorettes in the world.

Champion Shared Belief is now at Golden Gate, as he will be prepared for a campaign in 2016. This was his first appearance at a racetrack since April when he suffered a hip injury and had to be vanned off in the $1.5 opulent Charles Town Classic.

He had been in light training at the Pegasus Training and Rehabilitation Center in Redmond, Washington, since mid-September.

Under the care of Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, you can bet your bottom dollar that he will be handled cautiously from here on out and when he does return in a race, he will be dead fit.

That is a staple of runners trained by Hollendorfer. Day in and day out he has sent winners out in California and all of them are fit as a fiddle. He generally puts several slow works into his runners between races and bettors can lay it down with confidence that his runners will not be short. They may get beat, but it will not be because they don’t have the proper foundation.

If you bet a Hollendorfer horse and he has the lead at the top of the lane, he very seldom gets beat.

And that has been the case with Shared Belief too. He has only lost twice in his 12-race career. One was in the BC Classic when he got a trip from hell, and the other was the Charles Town fiasco. In 8 of those wins, he had the lead at the top of the lane and extended at the wire.

Horse of the Year California Chrome recorded his first breeze since March on November 7 at Los Alamitos. It was a light move as he went off slowly and galloped out strongly. His trainer Art Sherman was on hand with a small entourage and he was impressed with the short drill.

The decisions of the California Chrome owners have come into debate about how he has been handled. He was sent to Dubai and ran fine in defeat when second beaten by Prince Bishop. He was then sent to England and went wrong.

For the record he has won half of his 18 starts and has earned over $6.3 million. He has a super stalk and kick style and when it is time to go to the breeding shed, he’ll be tugging at the bit.

Talking about breeding, those that want a date with American Pharoah with a racing foal in mind have to bring along $200,000 for a movie, dinner, desert, and a nightcap when he is set to start his career at stud.

The Triple Crown champ retired as the 4th leading earner of all time among North American trained runners with an $8.6 million bankroll so the $200,000 stud fee seems reasonable.


He will easily be the most expensive stud at Ashland ahead of the $100,000 fee that Scat Daddy commands and the $85,000 fee that Giant’s Causeway demands.

The Pharoah will get the best mares in the game and his offspring will be eagerly anticipated.
