In that class on that course they've been running close to that. Just going from memory I think yesterday they went 21.1 and that was a 40k clmer. They are running down hill at the start so any horse that can't rate is going to burn out.
I just bet the 7TH at SA/ the 5/9 are a given pretty much, they were on both like they couldn't lose, and on I paper I agreed. Realizing anything can happen in a race, and does, especially the farther back in the pack you go. I still tend to toss horses at most levels that have been out a year/ another 7mo, but they finish 3-4, and close up with a large gap to 5th, and the 5th n 6th finishers were my guys for the tri n super. Some days you win and still scratch ur head!!!
$68.40 return, would have been at least a $100 more if the photo went your way.
Win #9 $7.60/ lost the photo for second at 30/1 in the .10 cent super, would have paid nice. got the win vn
10/4/12/2 ///// thought I was watching a replay of the Belmont Stakes of 73
BX, 11, 12
#4/first start/ng unless looks super
11/12/6/1/8 here's how they size up by average earnings which in these has always been a good indicator for the past 50 years for myself. The #4 is a horse of interest, good works, well bred, if they let me look at this horse either to like or toss I might play something here. Lately the ability to see a horse clearly and still bet has been nil.
I think the results are just fine, even though
If they retired this guy at age three, that might be a hard sell considering the following performances during a 56 day period. I sometimes times wonder what his times would have been with the aluminum shoes and lighting fast tracks that others had access to and he didn't.

I saw Secretariat only 3 times. All W's, and the W doesn't stand for win. He was magnificent anyway!
