The race was run well, and given his early speed he is a dangerous horse in any race. Still, I'd like to see him win and run outisde of NY but that won't happen until BC day (the run part, I don't see him winning the Classic). NY horses tend to have problems with the Churchill strip. His worst race in the past 2 year was in the BC mile, so you can't look past that. As for the track yesterday, what do you expect? A 1/4 in 24 a half in 49, 6 panels in 113, the pace setup for a slow final time which it was....1.52 is about a 1.50 had the pace been your average 111, lets not blow things out of proporition. this race played out like your average race but had slow pace times on a very slow track (played slow allllllll day) and you got a slow final time. You can't judge horses by time....this same horse went 1.32 in the Met Mile, how easily some choose to forget that. The PACE of a race and TRACK VARIANT/CONDITION are your two best friends as pertaining how to grade final time. I've seen claimers run 1.09s and faster....they ran the 6 panels in 113 yesterday, don't tell me any claimer would have been able to beat a single horse in that race even at the 6 panel marker.....never gonna happen. Time is one of the most irrelvevant things when grading horseflesh.

Tim, look how slow the Test was run 1:24+. I think it was a slow track from that bit of rain, but I will bow to an expert track condition opinion, which I'm sure will show up.
Horrible time though. Some of those G1 horses probabbly ran 154 for a mile 1/8?
wow..I'm going to utube and watch it again:)
very amazing win. I knew he had it at the turn! I was rooting for him!
