18-10(American Pharoah and Firing Line). These same numbers hit in 1984-#10(Swale) and #18(Coax Me Chad) as well as 2005-#10(Giacomo) and #18(Closing Argument). I knew this stat going in, but didn't think lightning would strike a third time.
Plus, Todd has never won the Preakness.
Wilt Chamberlain averaging 50 pts a game; scoring 100 pts(maybe)? or, Oscar Robertson averaging a triple double for an entire season.
Sorry, Mary, if my conveyances annoy you.. I have a love for this sport. My knowledge comes no where near vics.
I guess they showed them.
That was an inspirational quitter's story.
I am one who likes Frosted, but, when referring to closing time in the FOY(which is a mile and a sixteenth), he closed the last two and a half furlongs in a slow 35.32. If that were projected to 3/8's, that time would be 42.38. That, unfortunately Joe, is not awesome. I do believe the Llewellyn procedure that was performed on him, has bettered this colt immensely(at least I hope so, @ 15-1 odds!!!!!).
The only thing puzzling about the UAE Derby winner? They went back to dirt, but, when they come to America, they're working the winner at Arlington, which is synthetic. Why change to dirt, then have your lone representative work on synthetic to prepare for the dirt Derby?
It is roughly 451 hours until the Preakness. With the time drawing near, I hope that peace will prevail in the mean streets of Baltimore.
Nice article, Bryan. I tend to believe that with the new point system, the Louisiana Derby can enhance a possible successful route for someone that eyes the Derby. It will be nice to see this race join the ranks, and be a more pivotal race. travel vic: Monarchos didn't go by way of the Louisiana Derby, he went by way of Florida Derby(won) and Wood Memorial.
