Great closing effort by Macho Again in this race. Especially as wide as he was forced to go. But I don't think there's any question that if Einstein had gotten through that first gap that closed on him, he would've been much the best in this race. He had to wait for another gap to appear, and then still made an awesome run at Macho Again with a late start doing it. TJMO.
Even though Einstein did get pinched off trying to get through between horses in the Stephen Foster, if he had gotten through clean Macho Again was just much the best on that day. Einstein is one of those very rare horses, in that he is still extremely competitive, on any surface,and he's still able to race effectively for a much older horse than the horses he's facing. I do still feel like he's the most affective on grass, so he'll really have to bring what's left of his "A" game to pull off a victory over Gio Ponti in the Arlington Million. But I'm rooting for him, and Commentator in the Whitney. It's that soft spot I have for the old guys. I just rooted for Magnum in the Hollywood Gold Cup for the same reason.
