I'm sure that the numbers are small when stating how much of the jockey's involvement leads to the horse's win/improvement. I will say that in one instance where the answer would be 100%, would be the 2005 Preakness Stakes, when Afleet Alex clipped heels with Scrappy T, & Jeremy Rose's quick thinking eliminated the fall of the horse, and the eventual win.
Thank you, amino, for the recognition. I don't recall my frame of mind, when I posted that, but, it seems that I might've posted it facetiously? The reason why I say that, is I had a nice return on Da Tara, and a friend of mine had nailed Sarava. The challenge, as a handicapper, is to weigh all the variables, and try and find a "bomb". The reason why there are only 11 Triple Crown winners, is the reason why the achievement is such a magnificent accomplishment. They had pretty much the same rules as there are today.
Kind of feel Mott might be setting on a keg of dynamite. At Saratoga, she recorded the fastest time of the meet for a mile and 3/16 on the Mellon Course, AND, she also recorded the fastest time of the meet for a mile and a eighth on the Inner Course. When you think of all the upper-echelon horses that run at Saratoga, it is quite an amazing feat that one horse could hold two different best-times-of-the-meet. And, she's just coming of age!!!!!
How does this affect any possible BC entrants? My guess would be that they would be transferred over to somebody else's stable? Whatever happened to Richard Dutrow?
I guess I'd presume that Frank Stronach is involved in the renaming of Calder Race Course. I wonder if he will now eradicate all track records, a la Gulfstream Park, since it's under his ownership?
There is a sighting!!!! The lil' fella has been spotted as an entrant in Saturday's Belmont's $500K Champagne Stakes. He is #4 in a six-horse field, with odds of 5-1. Daredevil(#6), trained by Todd Pletcher, is the 2-1 favorite. Go Holy Boss!!!!!!!!!!
I don't believe that there ever has been a horse win the BCC, having won all of his races in only one state. If Shared Belief could win this race, he would be the first horse to have won all races in only one state.
Is anyone aware of the next race for this colt?
Well stated, Southern Humor, and triple_double. Refreshing observations!!!
On one hand, you chastise on inability to interpret; thus, not allowed to comment, and, on the other hand, you chastise on interpretation of vocabulary skills, or learn new words, and the whole time, you didn't spell interpret correctly. Guess that kills all those comments that were made about interpretations.
