"A suicidal speed duel with some wickedly fast fractions,set up the race perfectly", the fractions were exactly the same as those set by Quality Road on the lead except for 1/5 of a second at one point of call. AP, no matter where he runs will face a very good group of older horses. Running in the BCC gives him more time to mature. I doubt they'll bring SB back this year unless he's 100%. How Keeneland's new dirt surface plays in regard to running styles will be a major factor. Well I'm going to have a couple glasses of Kentuckian Bourbon before I turn in:)
I don't think anyone can be sure how Keeneland's dirt surface will play this fall. The spring meet is no judge as the rain was almost constant. However it plays I think he'll have a better shot there than running against older horses at Belmont which plays to all running styles at a route. I would be interest to see if HC stretches out. Just my thoughts on it.
Your former primary, about 2 years ago during a discussion on handicapping after the race as opposed to prior.
"10, finale. Redemption or add to the misery." You did post it. VN $20 is an exacta for me. Mary Z. | 7/2/2015 7:45 PM | - Re: Bertrando Stakes offers ...
tired/ I just noticed you didn't post this/ I feel much better/ you don't have to post prior to claim a win in Cali
I got home about 15 minutes after the race:) after granddaughters party. Had a good time at Chuck E. Cheese though for her 8TH B Day party. Expensive though as I look at this. It's not like I don't follow your Cali picks.
"Sybil... that wouldn't be another personal attack now, would it? :)"
For me it's just our history. Who you are on a particular day seems to be known only to you. Read all my replies.
I thought you were a little thicker skinned or I never would have called a CC, and that's why I never replied privately because I didn't want you to know I knew. It's called consideration. I play hard, I fight hard, but I don't hate or hold grudges. Just so you know. As for mr t I don't even think about him, just clearing that up from the other reply on this thread/ Goodnight
You post a myriad of things in a comment but think you alone have that capability, arrogant? "is there ANY basis in fact for your "protected status" lamentations?"
This was answered before your recent post/ as posted below. on 7/1/2015
I disagree, and hold to the belief he was the best of a very good crop which include Frosted who ran second in 2:27.4 in the Belmont, Dortmund and Firing Line who have yet to mature into their huge frames, Materiality a horse who ran 9F+ with no foundation as a 2yo to call upon (the importance of the foundation can't be overstated) and Mutaahij, a supposedly seasoned horse who can't change leads when needed. American Pharoah IMO is a very special horse. We'll just have to wait to see how special until later in the year when the other 3yos catch up with him in maturity. His biggest asset is he runs relaxed, aside from the fact he's muscled everywhere he should be and then some.
Acid998, my comment got through. Goto (remembered from programming 101 in he 80s) my profile page under comments. As though I have to teach you to navigate a computer, my reply is there. If you don't find that satisfactory then my question to you would be, why do you "wait until about 3 minutes to bet" quote,you in other username which I won't use/ as you wish to remain anonymous to all except myself and your dear friend t who yelled "obsession in the middle of the war and got me barred from commenting. A war that I was enjoying by the way as I knew I had his Bxxxs in my hand! A war he started BTW. Anyone who has ever disagreed with the narcissist knows disagreement isn't even thinkable when engaging him or you the become one of the 3/ As a former worker at the track you know as well as I do everybody gets a cut from a hot bettor, that's why runners are used. I really have to run as I still have things to do. I'll be back on line about 9pm est if you want to discuss this farther. Can't do better than that. If you reply plze leave out the jibberish as though it was written by a doctor writing a prescription. Sometimes us mere mortals don't understand the language of the gods:)
