  • icyhotboo · TM, I'm curious as to where you're going to get those desperately needed 2/5 of a second at the second call? Make no mistake, he, GOD has less chance this year than last. The only way he can finish in the money IMO is if MMM scratches. Even though I doubt MMM will win, his pace will put GOD away. It's probable four horses will leave the gate faster than GOD, two of those will hit the 3/4s faster, I just don't see a win or money finish with both MMM Fort Larned in the race. For GOD to finish in the money one of the aforementioned horses has to falter, namely MMM who will be running along side him. Just so you know where I'm coming from GOD is a favorite of mine, the most predictable horse to ever set foot on a track. He always runs the same race, anyone who hasn't made money wagering on him whether for or against is hard to imagine. Even if Baffert works him to the point he does get the second call fractions, he's then in the position he was last year, over extended and unable to finish in the money. For GOD to win he has to hit the second call in 1:10.3/5,and have enough energy left to not falter, besides that Mike Smith is a definite bet against all day long, this isn't the early 90s. · 184 days ago ·

  • tmallios1 · Icy,that is Bullet Bobs worry,the reason i am so on board with him,is how he is finally handled.The days are gone where they emptied his tank in worthless races.You saw the monster that ran in the Pacific Classic off of a layoff.The 2 months off will make him that much better.If all i have to worry about is 2.5 ths of a second.Maybe i will take Lisas adviceshe gave me for Noble Moons debut. I shall seek out loan officers. I go into the races assuming they will all run their best,except for horses like MMM and Ron The Greek,who emptied their tanks in the preps.That being the case.For right or wrong.This in my eyes might be over when the Marshall in the paddock says "Riders Up' · 184 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · the ASA used to limit you, you had to have the correct filter, you did not get to see your work until it was processed, temperature extremes caused trouble, lens changes, power winders, test flashes etc · 189 days ago ·
