over Hamilton with three races to go, but means he is still yet to win a U.S. Grand Prix. After the race Rosbe

He didnt look like the second coming of Native Dancer when he left California last week, and he looked pretty much like the same iron-gray colt when he walked off the Hubbard van Monday afternoon at Del Mar. Jordan Retro 6 Infrared Red .But what a difference a record-setting, 13-1/2-length win in the Travers can make, for its all eyes now on Arrogate, the son of Unbridleds Song who dismantled Americas oldest stakes race last Saturday with the ease of a child crumbling a tower made of Legos.There at Bob Bafferts barn FF, with the American Pharoah Triple Crown plaque mounted high on the concrete wall, Arrogate got a quick foot rinse, a tour of the tow ring, and a long drink of water before being soaped down, sponged off, and put away in his stall next to his even grayer stablemate, Cupid. (And no, Arrogate does not live in American Pharoahs Del Mar stall. American Freedom must deal with those ghosts.)Baffert has been swinging hard all year trying to replace the irreplaceable American Pharoah from a deep bench that would put the 1927 Yankees to shame. He started with Mor Spirit, doubled down with Cupid, and unleashed American Freedom to win a cluster of second-tier 3-year-old events without really stirring the blood. On paper, Arrogate appeared to be no more or less than the next batter up, with no stakes experience and a pedigree that offered cold comfort at the 1-1/4 miles required by the Travers.So much for paper.Mike couldnt stop talking, Baffert said of his Travers rider, Mike Smith. He was like, Did you see that? Can you believe that? I dont believe that. He was cracking me up.While Baffert was holding it in.After the race, I was all ready to give it the Usain Bolt, he said, striking the Olympic sprinters trademark lightning-bolt victory pose. But then I thought Im here at Saratoga, training for Juddmonte, and maybe I better keep it low key.The idea that trainers working for Prince Khalid Abdullah must maintain a strict sense of public propriety is due mainly to their high regard for the man himself. There are no particular rules of behavior required, but if the Juddmonte aura discourages Baffert from putting a trophy on his head, so be it.In the end, its the horse that counts, and those insiders and wise guys touting Arrogates superior skills before the Travers could be considered guilty of arrogating, that is, to claim something without justification. They also were right.History is full of one-trick ponies, which means Arrogates next step in the Breeders Cup Classic will be his defining challenge. If he can do it again against California Chrome, Frosted, and whatever Aidan OBrien brings to Santa Anita in November, then we can talk about the gray colt as one of the great late bloomers.In the meantime, it is worth noting that Arrogate is not the first horse named Arrogate to make racing history. And the old Arrogate did some of his best work at Del Mar, not far from where the new Arrogate lives today.Old Arrogate was a foal of 1951 born into privilege at Calumet Farm but later sold to Southern California refuse entrepreneur Dick Gregorian. Reggie Cornell trained Arrogate to his most significant West Coast victories, which included the 1955 and 1956 runnings of the Del Mar Handicap, then run at nine furlongs on the main track.What a business Gregorian had, said Hall of Famer Ron McAnally, who worked for his Uncle Reggie at the time. After his trucks picked up all the trash, hed have it all separated into bottles, cans, paper, and garbage. The bottles, cans, and paper hed sell, and the garbage theyd take to a pig yard to feed the pigs. And they were his pigs! Every part of the operation was profit.Arrogate was the younger half-brother of Calumets Sun Again, the winner of the Arlington Futurity, and Fervent, a colt who on his best days could beat horses like Stymie, Phalanx, and his stablemate Armed.He was a chestnut horse, McAnally said of Arrogate. Ideal to work with. No problems at all.In his first Del Mar Handicap win, Arrogate defeated Bobby Broccato, the winner of the Santa Anita Handicap and San Juan Capistrano. In his second Del Mar score, Arrogate turned back Honeys Alibi, the winner of the Malibu Stakes and the San Diego Handicap -- but something more.It was on Sept. 3, 1956, 60 years ago Saturday, that Arrogate carried John Longden to his 4,871st victory in that Del Mar Handicap, passing the record established by Englands Sir Gordon Richards. Longdens age at the time was reported as 46, and he rode for another 10 years, retiring at what he announced was 59. Go ahead, do the math.The old Arrogate ended up winning seven stakes, a quarter-million dollars, and posted a record of 20 wins and 22 placings from 83 starts. But since he was neither a Horse of the Year, nor an Eclipse Award winner, nor the winner of a race in the Triple Crown, his name was available to be recycled after 25 years.No one touched it until Prince Khalid snapped it up for his gray son of Unbridleds Song. Now the new Arrogate is flying the name high and proud after setting a Saratoga track record for 1-1/4 miles in the Travers, just as the old Arrogate set a Del Mar track record for 1-1/8 miles in the 1956 Handicap. Sometimes history can be so cool. Jordan 6 Black University Blue.500 on the season. The Jets are now 0-5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs. The game started the same way the Vancouver game started the night before, with the Jets taking the first two penalties of the game and killing off the first, but the Oilers getting on the board first, scoring on the second man-advantage.Jordan 8 Retro Aqua For Sale . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. . Jane Virtanen scored two, and Alex Roach and Elliott Peterson rounded out the offence for the Hitmen (40-15-6). Brady Brassart chipped in with three assists. Colton McCarthy scored twice, Brayden Point had a goal and two assists, and Jack Rodewald also scored for the Warriors (15-35-9), who were 2 for 5 on the power play. After the U.S. Grand Prix Nico Rosberg turned to some classic Bon Jovi to ease the disappointment of finishing second to teammate Lewis Hamilton.The result in Austin saw Rosberg maintain a healthy 26-point championship lead over Hamilton with three races to go, but means he is still yet to win a U.S. Grand Prix. After the race Rosberg and Mercedes visited Petes Duelling Piano Bar on Austins 6th Street, a popular venue for fans and teams during the U.S. Grand Prix weekend, to celebrate the constructors championship wrapped up one race earlier in Japan.Though the phrase may better describe Hamiltons current title hopes, during the evening Rosberg jumped on stage to sing Bon Jovis Livin on a Prayer -- duetting with Manor driver and Mercedes junior Esteban Ocon for good measure. Jordan 6 Retro Black/Infrared 23-Black Grade Schools. Rosberg later posted a snippet of the performance to Twitter:Rosberg also sung on stage at the bar last year just hours after losing the title to Hamilton at the 2015 race. On that occasion he called Hamilton, watching on from the rafters, to come and join him but the world champion declined the invitation. Ocon, meanwhile, may be hoping a future Mercedes seat is not awarded to him on the basis of his karaoke skills.Rosberg also celebrated Mercedes success with the Queen classic We Are the Champions, seen below in a video posted to Twitter by fan @SimonTipple:? Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
