Frosted Emerging from the Shadows

Almost like Sham in 1973, Frosted ran in American Pharoah’s shadow in 2015, finishing behind him every time they ran together. He was usually good, but American Pharoah was always better. In their last race together, the Breeder’s Cup Classic, Frosted came in a surprising 7th. Several months later, after resting, training, time, and maturing, Frosted’s four-year-old career started with a huge win in Dubai. Though the track could be considered slower than American tracks, Frosted still ran easily to take more than a second off the track record. He obviously loves the track there. Could he be our next American winner of the Dubai World Cup in March?

Texas Red still out there

One of my favorite horses in recent years is Texas Red. He has had such potential, but it seemed like Murphy’s Law is following him closely. What can go wrong has gone wrong. His disappointing run in his last race was surprising to me, but I think he’s still got potential. As a 4-year-old this year, his trainer is taking his time and molding this horse into what is hopefully an older male champion.
