I feel there are many stakes that have lost their luster of the past. It is perfectly fine to point out the strong as well as the weak fields. They do it for all the major Euro races all the time. Should be no different here. If it is a sub-standard field, then it is.
You mean the ones concerning the quality of the fields?

Florida f, I commend you for sticking to the subject in the thread opener. I was looking for a wa to b. about the ucky Woodward comments I've been reading for the past two-three years.

Dry teeth, ugh pit of stomach feeling over comments on grades of races , particularly the Woodward. I will not be satisfied until I see a 3/4 page dissertation on historically significant grade 1 stakes and all of their fields' grade 1 worthiness for all of the runnings of those races as deemed respectable by the unofficial graded stakes committee, and by that I mean the ones that witnessed Exterminator running.
