  • tmallios1 · Dani again i disagree.All time tells me is what TIME to wake up. What TIME to do this and what TIME to do that. If TIME is so diffinitive and the variant is not important.What happens if a surface is lightning fast and a horse goes 6f in 1.08 with the splits as you like to call them ,22/22/24 . That would be spectacular. What if on a dead race track a horse goes in 1.11 with splits of 23/23/25 . Both horses go wire to wire.Without the variant of the day,and you showed somebody who the more impressive horse was.I will give you 1 guess as to who they might come up with. In reality the lslower horse ran faster. You also say that it is not affected by energy. Like i told you,final times ,split times or the N.Y.Times. They are all irrelevant. It is how much effort it takes you to get there. So apparently it is taking to much TIME for me to convince you and you to convince me. I'd love to hear your response,i could care less if you are right or wrong. Just how i look at things.Yet not to be mistaken as arrogant,somehow deep inside,i am in the right. · 58 days ago ·

  • dani.pugh · Tell me where i said variant is not important? I NEVER did. I said variant is dependent upon time which is true. You proved that point of mine in your fifth sentence. You know the variant will be high or low because of the time. I also said it is dependent upon the splits, which you proved again, because like i said the pace tell us through the time. Time tells us if the track is slow or fast, so if you see a fast time on a slow track, with a fast pace behind it, you know darn well it is fast. You know the variant because you know the time. Without the time you would not know the pace nor would you know the variant. Tell me how you would be able to come up with numbers for variant, pace figures, or final race figures? You can't. · 58 days ago ·

  • AnneShaw · If you arent able to find I can email to you only Feb 27 for three days. Re your last post my mom was totlly against racing so the only time we could go was when the (St Louis) Cardinals had a game we just told her we were going to the game. She wasn't a baseball fan either but it was much preferable to Fairmount Park. So we did not tell either except for what a wonderful/terrible game we saw. · 59 days ago ·

  • ekindy · Maria I feel is the most talented, but she's not all that consistent. Combine that with the draw and that makes for bad news, although I am still big on her for the spring races. For this race though, I'm going with Onlyforyou, though if the price is right I might exacta box the two. · 62 days ago ·

Considering the size and quality of his stable, no matter how hard trainer Todd Pletcher tries to keep his horses apart, there are those times when it is unavoidable. Such will be the case on Saturday in the 30th renewal of the $200,000 Davona Dale (G2) at Gulfstream Park. Read More

The odds will not be great due to the size of the field, but if you’re looking for a filly with a legitimate shot at beating Julia, look no further than Private Ensign.Read More
