  • AmbitiousD · I apologize if I have not explained this clearly. Ratings in Hong Kong are not speed ratings for races like Beyers are here. Think of them more like rankings in the BCS system for college football. But in your specific example, a horse that races in graded stakes will be rated in the top tier of horses in HK, as its a prerequisite. The priority for filling stakes races is the rating system. So a G2 caliber horse would likely be rated in the 90-100 range, however if the field will be filled based on the ratings of the horses nominated. So if a specific horse carries a rating of 90, he will be entered into a graded stakes field only if it does not fill with horses that are rated higher than him. if the field is full with horses rated higher, then that horse can be an AE or opt to run in high class handicap to try and increase its individual rating. The HK system is specially designed so that "allowance" (aka ratings 0-80) cannot openly engage in competition against stakes level horses (typically ratings 80+). They have to increase their ratings through continually improving agains their own level of competition and "rising through the ranks" so to speak. · 23 days ago ·
  • ekindy · Just my opinion of course, but in this race I see the post positions and weather as having a far greater effect on the outcome than the weights assigned. The weights are just not high enough to have that serious of an effect on the placings, especially at 9 furlongs. I'm going with Golden Soul because I think PM will have a hard time overcoming his outside post and the slop. Bradester would not surprise me either, but I'm expecting the speed to break down some in the final furlong, especially if Smith fights to get PM out front and they battle early. Of course I'll wait to see how the track plays out, if it's good or better then I'll have to consider NI. · 21 days ago ·

I've been reading this one is pointed to the New Orleans Hcp. Why do these connections continue to race this horse against the "big boys". I think his 2nd in the Derby was an aberration. Am I the only one that thinks this guy is over his head at this level? I'de also like to see him get another shot on the grass or one on synthetic

  • icyhotboo · TM, I'm curious as to where you're going to get those desperately needed 2/5 of a second at the second call? Make no mistake, he, GOD has less chance this year than last. The only way he can finish in the money IMO is if MMM scratches. Even though I doubt MMM will win, his pace will put GOD away. It's probable four horses will leave the gate faster than GOD, two of those will hit the 3/4s faster, I just don't see a win or money finish with both MMM Fort Larned in the race. For GOD to finish in the money one of the aforementioned horses has to falter, namely MMM who will be running along side him. Just so you know where I'm coming from GOD is a favorite of mine, the most predictable horse to ever set foot on a track. He always runs the same race, anyone who hasn't made money wagering on him whether for or against is hard to imagine. Even if Baffert works him to the point he does get the second call fractions, he's then in the position he was last year, over extended and unable to finish in the money. For GOD to win he has to hit the second call in 1:10.3/5,and have enough energy left to not falter, besides that Mike Smith is a definite bet against all day long, this isn't the early 90s. · 186 days ago ·
  • tmallios1 · Icy,that is Bullet Bobs worry,the reason i am so on board with him,is how he is finally handled.The days are gone where they emptied his tank in worthless races.You saw the monster that ran in the Pacific Classic off of a layoff.The 2 months off will make him that much better.If all i have to worry about is 2.5 ths of a second.Maybe i will take Lisas adviceshe gave me for Noble Moons debut. I shall seek out loan officers. I go into the races assuming they will all run their best,except for horses like MMM and Ron The Greek,who emptied their tanks in the preps.That being the case.For right or wrong.This in my eyes might be over when the Marshall in the paddock says "Riders Up' · 186 days ago ·
