  • Dressage3295 · How is he not a distance horse? All his wins have been over a mile (excluding his maiden). His best race, IMO, was at 10f. I say give him a shot at the turf. If he takes to it, great! If he doesn't, then I think they should focus in on more NY races, where he seems to be comfortable at. Out of his 11 starts in NY, he's been out of the money 3 times. It also seems that he never places well when there's early speed. In his Woodward win, the half mile was a good second slower than when he placed 6th in the Whitney. In fact the Woodward was his only win since his 2 yr old year when the 1/4 mile was run faster than 24 seconds · 66 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · Alpha is definitely a distance horse and he has some very long-winded siblings. Distance is not going to be an issue. First time starter on grass...that's where the big question lies. · 66 days ago ·

  • Mary Z. · That thing don't mind running 10f. It would have had , you do the math, like $25,000 more dollars and a grade 2 win added to its record. Excuse the grammar. I'm eating. · 92 days ago ·
  • Mary Z. · Maybe that was if he skipped the BC and ran only in the Hawthorne race. The dollars difference. I had it figured out once. Really thought he'd run in the Hawthorne Gold Cup after he had won that other slow 10f. · 92 days ago ·

  • rafirox · Love David Jacobson and Drawing Away Stable. They are classy folks, all about business and are quite respected around the game. Jacobson's placement in horses' (class) and his care are top notch. If he feels he should run a certain horse often, so be it. He knows more than you, I and everyone else on this thread combined, Laurie. · 102 days ago ·
  • tmallios1 · Laurie,thank you for bringing out the Pink Elephant into the fore front. It is a joke how some of these guys claim horses at bargain basement prices and raise them to heights of winning stakes races. Then they are hailed as heroes. Amino said it best,The feed program is so much better on the other side of the fence.Smokey was one of the unlucky ones. So many more are left to the outside. Not only herein NY,but at other tracks. An absolute joke when trainers are almost winning at 30% or over. Oh yeah,i definately believe they are sharper than others and know how to place their horses. Same nonsense with Blinkers on first time. That is the corporate line. The real line is that they finally did what was needed to be done. · 102 days ago ·
