thoughtsonracinglifeandmore answered:It has to bChrome then. Funny Cide finished last in the 2003 BC Classic and still won the Eclipse…although his owners were likeable.
My theory is if Big Brown won the Eclipse, connections don’t matter much. Now he did have two wins following the Belmont, so if Chrome races and loses after this, the connections may tip the voters in the favor of one of the others should they get another big win. But considering Chrome is a Kentucky Derby/Preakness winner, I think a lot would have to happen (or not happen) for him to not win it.
sirbartonslady answered: Probably still Chrome, due to the heavy favoritism of being a dual-classic winner.
I’d agree with this. I think one of the other current frontrunners need another big win to potentially take it from him, and even then, I think he’d need at least one more loss to really be in danger of losing it.
Hypothetical Scenario: California Chrome runs out of the money in the Penn Derby and Breeder’s Cup Classic (let’s assume he doesn’t run so badly in the Penn Derby that they don’t run him in the Breeder’s Cup.)
The winner of the Travers is not Bayern or Tonalist, but one or both of them finish in the money. The winner of the Travers ends up not factoring in - say that’s his only real claim to fame.
The winner of the Pacific Classic is not Shared Belief, but he finishes in the money.
The winner of the Breeder’s Cup Classic is not a three year old, but one or two three year olds named above (other than California Chrome) finish in the money.
So the Derby/Preakness winner fails to run well in two starts following the Triple Crown legs - but he is the Derby/Preakness winner. Other talked about three year olds don’t win, but consistently finish in the money and do so against older horses as well.
Who gets Champion Three Year Old Colt? California Chrome, Tonalist, Bayern, or Shared Belief?
did you know when you suddenly jerk awake while falling asleep, another version of you from a different timeline just died
This post fucked me up.
It’s actually because you’re heart rate decreased so quickly that you’re brain jerks you awake to make sure you’re still alive.
