Turns out that Smart Strike colts CAN win big races on synthetics and
dirt, ala LOOKIN AT LUCKY in last Saturday's G2 Rebel at Oaklawn. Guess
that blows a hole in the argument that the carpet single-handedly beat
Curlin in the 2008 Breeders' Cup. You might recall, Curlin also was
sired by Smart Strike. You can't have it both ways, surface haters.
