If you take into consideration Wise Dan's 6 eclipse award in the last two years I would think turf horses are given fair treatment. Personally I thought California Chrome had done enough after the triple crown try, even though he missed to earn the award. His race in the Belmont where he sustained more than a minor injury was very good. Whether he's the best horse or best 3yo shouldn't have been the question in voters minds as in 2014 he did enough to win both. Even though Shared Belief is a better horse IMO, he just didn't do enough to get either award. When people start throwing grade 1 total wins around I sometimes wonder if they realize all races of the same grade are not equal. As for the other contender Bayern, his inability to run on a slow tiring track had to be strongly considered, and was.
Photographic or Videotape Recording of Races is mandatory only according to the state. As the state-by-state oversight structure can be as different as night and day. I would check where the horse raced and contact the racing commission of that state, depending of course on how important this is to you.
#1 BEATS ME ON BOTH
6TH R 3/5 BOX- BLINKERS/BEATEN FAVORITE GL TO ME
12,11,1,10,4 those were great picks Mary. It's my own fault for getting greedy. As an exotic player I know the box comes first, but it was a small bet. You're right about MS!!! I don't know why I thought you kidding. I loved the #12 and covered with the back class on another with the #7. I just got back home. Covered the results, then watched the replay. Looked good to me at the bottom of the hill. Sometimes you just have to laugh. No other choice. Long year ahead. That was a great job getting the #1 and #10 in though.
12,WT,1,4,5,10,11,WT,1,4,5,10,11,WT,1,4,5,10,117,WT,11,12,WT,10,11,12,WT,1,4,5,10,11,12I copied Mary's picks as usual in the down hill races. Had to bet early. No time to look at odds. No need with just supers. GL all
" he doesn't necessarily possess that sprinter burst of speed required to overcome a slower paced sprint race. While he is tactical, he doesn't have that lightening quick turn of foot,"I must have been watching the wrong horse as I saw a horse with a very quick turn of foot. I didn't look at the form yet but I would either put him on top or toss him. Considering Baffert is 1 for 2 in KOing him and almost got him both times, once with 1 horse and once with 2 horses. This time he has 4 horses in. Best thing to do is go right to the top with SB and the other leader then hit that last furlong with an 11:2/5, Only way to be sure.
