Your preoccupation with Yannis doesn't make sense! What I write while handicapping before the race comes under "thinking out loud." What I post as my definitive plays, is what you can hold me to. As I had the only prerace winner out of all commenters. Clearly there's no plausible argument here. Unless you want to rewrite history.
Redboarding... I hadn't heard that term until you brought it up. Had to look it up. You much catch a lot of people, and you promptly expose them for frauds, how does that benefit you in particular? Do you and Roger Rabbit laugh your a$$e$ off in the closet where you hide? What's the benefit to you? " "Don't care if I do, do, die" Is that what it's all about?
If that was redboarding, why did you warns the loudmouth I was listening????????? I don't have to contradict you as you do that quite nicely yourself. "Actions speak louder than words"
I don't believe Baffert ever wanted this race going by his remarks prior. Since the owner always gets what he wants, AP ran because zayat determined there wasn't supposed to be any pace pressure, SURPRISE. Part of handicapping is breaking down the time at each point of call, usually I'm very accurate, but in this race I had the mile in 1:36.20 with a final of 2:01.80. As an exotics player I didn't have Keen Ice in the top spot simply because he was always to far back to get there in time to win. Two things changed, Castellano was on Keen Ice instead of Desormeax and kept him close enough to get there, and Lezcano gave Frosted the type of ride he never had before wearing AP down. Saratoga and CD's have something in common, both track surfaces are composed of 4 to 5 inches of sand and have a clay base. While the similarity doesn't mean that they have to play the same due to many factors such as the cut of the individual sand particles, according to the 2015 Track Equalization Chart Saratoga in a route plays only 1/5 second slower than CD.
If there was to be pace pressure I expected it to come from Texas Red or Frosted with the other being the winner. Jockey's are people too, and maybe after being virtually given the TC they just didn't want to give up another. Under the circumstances I though AP ran an amazingly good race, but the Triple Crown is so hard to win because it was designed that way in the end, to wear horses down so that should a horse win he deserves it. However that leaves a tired horse, something that didn't show in the Haskell because of the fast surface at Monmouth, but it did here due the aforementioned.. I don't see where this race hurt this horse's legacy any more than Seattle Slew's foray across country hurt his.
You posted 1 play this YEAR, criticized THOUSANDS of others with your personal brand of sickening sarcasm and you want kudos, PASS!!!
There's a difference between us, I'm proactive, and you're totally reactive, without any semblance of credibility... show where your selections can be located BEFORE the race... that does put you in a bind... a critique from someone who's afraid to come out of the closet doesn't mean much, ANYWHERE!!! I'm not going to let you off the hook and post your identity, no matter how much you beg, simply because you can't be sure whether I know or not... that alone causes you to lose sleep, to my delight!!!
Your love affair with T_V has nothing to do with me.
Your ignorance of how "heads up wagering" takes place and how it's spotted is your deficit not mine, you live with it, I don't have to.
Go ahead and fight like a girl, again...I would expect nothing less from u...>>>><<<<<<<>>>><<<<<<<
It's remarkable how many horses in defeat show true class. In the stretch when Frosted passed AP, AP dug deep down and pulled away from him. When a horse does that, you know it's a special horse. I was truly surprised they ran him at Saratoga. One of the most demanding dirt tracks. All signals from Baffert were he didn't want to go prior to the decision. AP is an exceptional horse, but horses do get tired, and most of the time you don't find out until the race. Running all the TC races is by design extremely tiring. Yet this is his second race after winning the TC and he still ran a credible race.
The horse lost a horse race, big deal. That's what horse racing used to be about. It's real nice to see it again. Kudos to Zayat for bringing him to Saratoga to race so that many of the 50,000 people could see a Triple Crown winner. This will be understood, just like Seattle Slew's hiccup was.
Someone said this would be his last race, but then that person is kind out in left field. What's he know!
Then run him as a 4yo like they should all horses instead of following Secretariat's gold rush!
