Speaking for myself there aren't any bad horses. Just some that are faster than others. Anything that may be taken as detrimental to any horse should be transferred up to the jockey, trainer, owner, never the horse. Some things are just hilarious though, really no offense to anyone. If It's any consolation to those who don't like my comments I was 0 for 6 races Saturday, but I had fun.
Unfortunately for me I sipping coffee when Gary Stevens Stated he knew he had it won as he only had to come home the last 5/16 in :30 seconds, which is 2-2/5 seconds faster than Oxbow ever did before. God bless anyone who had that exacta because it could only come by way of divine inspiration, not any other way, except a quick pick.
"As for those who wanted to call out distance or class limitations on Itsmyluckyday and Oxbow ... What have they to say now?" I'll say this, they finished right where they were predicted to finish 6 to 8 lengths behind the next slowest Preakness Stakes winner in the last 50 years, Shackleford.
Orb was his for the taking (Johnny V) but he chose Verrazano remember. Maybe you didn't watch the Kentucky Derby but Orb had a brutal trip. He ran at least 10 lengths farther than any other horse in that race. To expect him to come back in two and be in top form is unrealistic.
I really don't understand the constant knocking of Rosario. He is an elite jockey, at the present time, regardless of the opinions of many who allegedly know much about racing have to say. In actuality those opinions are pure ignorance of the mechanic's of thoroughbred horse racing. I've gone into detail on his first concerning his alleged bad ride, where the classless Graham Motion knocked him publicly. It's truly amazing that a trainer of that many years doesn't know the difference between running style and pace. Curious they still decided to keep him for the race with biggest purse in racing when Johnny V unashamedly offered his services. Today we have a tout knocking him. Don't show me your past picks for accountability as they mean nothing when done without pressure, just as in horse racing with a horse running loose on the lead. You want credibility/accountability show your betting slips or your IRS statement that classifies you as a professional gambler. At the present time you're just another talking head trying to sell your picks.
Terrible ride in the KD, he didn't have a clue. I'm wagering both with and without him today so no matter what he does today it only affects me monetarily.
True, but trainers pay more to get excatly what they want, along with the owners.
None of the above!
jmac500, your reasoning stuns me...
because Oxbox, Goldencents, Govenor Charlie, and Titletown Five can't rate... toss em all... There is another reason, Orb, Will Take Charge, and Mylute.
