BG layed down sub 12 second fractions for the final 4 furlongs. I haven't had the chance to watch the race, but those would be challenging fractions for any horse to close into, especially going 1 1/4 miles on dirt.
There is nothing wrong with having a discussion, if the topic doesn't interst you don't take part in it.
The colts have a pretty bad track record coming out of these big races as well.
It was a speed crazy track, but that seems to be the norm for SA. A claiming race was ran in something like 1:08:?? earlier on the card. Still the fastest 1 1/4 I've been witness to in my short history with the sport.
Johnny v may well have been his first pick for SN, but he is riding at gulf stream today. Rosie is also the top rider at the fair grounds so it really made since to give her the mount. Good luck to Samantha Nicole in her next race.
That's an awful thing to hope for.
No news is good news
Eventually there will not be anything but geldings and 3 year olds about to retire to run in the BC, very little emotional significance. Maybe thats why I fell the Filly n mare races are so much more exciting, they actually stick around.
I don't understand how you can even try to speak positives in horse racing.\
A few scratches in the field so Mr. Besilu will be running, he is the only four year old in the field. He will be carrying 7 lbs more than the rest of the field.
