WTC has one of the best turns of foot I've ever seen. Watch his last 4 races. Every athelete in every sport has a day that they just weren't going to be beaten, this day belonged to the "Dude."
They all ran on the same track. Also he wasn't the lone speed, MMM ran even with him the last two BCC. It's his fault when he loses because he's bad but when he wins "they cheated." I've always wondered who "they"were.
How about we get that OMHOTY eclipse award now?
Imperative will have a say in the pace. Blingo will hit the board!
MMM has never run under 1:10.80 at SA and that was his slowest of four. GOD can't rate so he'll get buried in MMM's pace as he did in 2012. GOD needs a 1:12.0 to even be competitive, Stevens isn't going to let him get it just as he didn't let hernandez on Fort Larned do a replay of 2012 and get those extra 2 1/2 lengths at the 3/4s in the 2013 BCC. When FL moved he moved with him. about.
Nice race with MMM at the top of his game and WTC a young 4yo who adapts to the pace of any race he's in.
When you're "hot you're hot," when you're cold you're icy," However I'm always Boo to you.
When they say they incorporate pace into their speed figures, and their top two speed figures for 2013 are given to a horse running loose on the lead, what's to wonder about?
When I was young there was, and other tracks I used to go to in NYC and Canada had a very large group of young people. When this stopped I don't know but going to the tracks now I'm hard pressed to see people under forty.
Quite A few horses fully mature during their 3yo season, here are just a few I remember. Damascus, no improvement at 4yo, Easy Goer 1:32.2 as a 3yo, Citation, this is one I should have listed first even though he was before my time, as a 2yo and 3yo he was beyond fantastic at that age, and never better, beating older older horses in the spring, very curious as to how he would have run at Belmont at 3yos in the fast tracks of the 70s. However Dr. Fager and Spectacular Bid improved immensely as 4yos, but sometimes horses don't always get better, some times they remain the same or get sour mostly due to nagging injuries as was the case with Citation and Buckpasser. As for Secretariat maybe he might have lost interest due to being raced so many times either sick or untrained for the particular races. Just a thought.
