The Seagrams Cup today had two important lessons. First, and probably foremost, I witnessed yet a NEW way to get a DQ. A long priced horse, Ultimate Destiny rand 2nd but immedicately the inquiry sign went up. I watched the entire contest, saw no obvious problem, so when they asked for a show photo, it was ready in a few seconds....Once you wait more than 2 minutes on an inquiry, you know the "disqualified" sign is ready to overlay on the photo. I stipped the graphics and started to make it over when I got word the place horse had be dq'd to last. Get this: the horse HIT the gate, forcing it open about a 1/2 second BEFORE the normal mechanism. In a slow motion lower pan shot, you could set the gate completely open before ANY of the other ones were free. Only problem for the horse, Ultimate Destiny, was that he stepped BACK in response to hitting the gate and had no advantage. The rules of racing guaratee a fair start so precedent had to me maintained, so it came down...The other obvious lesson was one of the co-favorites being FORCEDS into a differing energy distribution..the 8, James Stree, a stone cold sustained to sustained/presser, was rushed up to push a pace he rarely saw before...Used up to early, he faded badly down the lane...Lesson: the horse has a running style DON'T try to alter it.
