Older Comments about the Metropolitan Hcp. (Met Mile)...

A little surprised about the bottom four finishers of this race. I didn't pick them to win but they were: Vyjack, Normandy Invasion, Capo Bastone, Moreno.

  • goblin · URR, It is a hyaluronic acid preparation, and they are not permitted less than 48 hrs. before a race. I guess the Central Banker people missed the deadline; the Legend is not shown on the med sheet submitted yesterday. http://www.animallaw.info/administrative/adusny9nyadc4043_2.htm · 46 days ago
Really difficult race for Malice. I've been saying forever, this is not his distance ... the post hurts ... REAL world class milers like Goldencents, Normandy Invasion and Moreno ... having to run 1f shorter (if not more) than he would like .... with that said, you know who I am taking. I am taking a horse who is attempting (throughout the course of the year) to garner the title "great". I think he'll be primed to run here by Mr. Pletcher, and I think he is simply a tremendous horse who will get the job done, no matter how many obstacles are in his way. I'm picking Palace Malice to win the Met Mile. Goldencents, Moreno and Normandy Invasion to follow.

This looks like it could be a monster race. I am just about as excited for this as Belmont. A lot of horses I enjoy watching like Vyjack, Capo Boston are in there but my real issue is who do pull for Palice Malice or Goldencents? My two favorite active horses that I dont own or have shares of are running against eachother. What a great day of racing this is going to be.

When NYRA first announced that they were moving this great race and adding it to the Belmont Stakes card i was happy. Since i have had time to think about it, i find it a terrible and disrespectful idea. My initial joy was a knee jerk reaction to a deeper race card on Belmont Day. Excluding the Triple Crown Series and the Breeders Cup Classic run every year. The Met Mile in my opinion is one of the 3 Premiere races to be run in the United States. It always draws a nice big field and a very strong one at that. Divirsity is rampant,from top sprinters to Milers to Distance horse cutting back. To win this race,a horse must be incredibly on his or her game. You do not steal the Met Mile,you earn it. As i mentioned ,i live around 20 minutes from Belmont Park. I do not go there anywhere near the amount of times others would go if they were in my position. Maybe i take it for granted,or really do not care that much for live racing. If i am going to sit down for 5 hours and play. I would rather have a menu of more options. That being said,The Met Mile was always a must to go to.The tradition of being run on Memorial Day is still fresh in my mind. As i reflect more,NYRA has taken a Gem of a Stand Alone Race and made it an undercard feature. Regardless of what he public thinks,New York is not really a live racing City. Even the Belmont Stakes,unless there is a Triple Crown on the line. The crowds are dissapointing in comparison to other venues. Even the Met Mile when run on Memorial Day was not heavily attended. From a buisiness sense,the move does make a lot of sense. But the Met now becomes a back up singer for the Front man(THE BELMONT STAKES) . Assuming there is no Triple Crown on the line,mark my words. The Met will hardly be an insentive for New Yorkers to go out to the track.At the risk of being labelled an Arrogant New Yorker,which many seem to love the tag. There are just to many things to do during that time,than hang around the track for 6 hours. If you do not believe me,review 2 days run in NY with and incredible menu of racing and Superstars. The Jockey Gold Cup Day and the Cigar Mile Day. On JCGC day,the weather was magnificent,yet 9,000 showed up in a city whose surrounding population nears 11 million people. Then on Cigar day,on a nice November day. Only 5,000 showed up. Like i said,for buisiness it makes sense. But not worth it if you are scrificing a Statuesque race like The Met Mile.
