I've heard it said before that if a horse is a front runner, he's just a front runner and there's no changing it. But I'm telling you, if ever a horse needed to find some middle ground in the way he races, Presious Passion is definitely that horse. In today's 2010 Mac Diarmida at Gulfstream Park, other than Winchester, who really hasn't been a threat in major stakes races for some time, I don't know if I had ever even heard of any of the other horses in the field. Once again, Presious Passion went flying out of the gate with that "I've got to lead by 20 lengths" mentality. Once again, he tired late and was just able to hold of Winchester by 1-1/2 lengths to win. Against this particular field, Presious Passion should have destroyed them. That's why I absolutely will not bet on Presious Passion in a race. He's what I call a 50-50 horse. If the right Presious Passion is on the track, he goes wire to wire. But more often than not lately, with that running style that he has, he races himself right out of the race by tiring at the end. But in races that have colts that are strong closers, like Gio Ponti in the Arlington Million and Conduit in the Breeders Cup Turf, Presious Passion just isn't going to hold on to win those types of races because he run's his tank empty far too early in the race.
