That is too funny. You still have that annoying know it all perspective on yourself. Things never change. In your review of Vyjacks last 10 races did you take into consideration the health of the horse and the year lay off at precisely the time when colts of his age are growing and coming into their own? Also, one of the main ingredients to handicapping is knowing beforehand how the race will set up, how fast a pace or how slow and who will benefit or who will not. How the bias plays to their strengths and what is running in their veins to propel them at the given distance. Not every horse is a speedster up front, they all run differently and it is in this understanding where one needs not waste gambling profits on a dutch bet and goes to the windows with confidence. I kinda like the fact that your understanding of certain horses is muddled, as always, makes your comments comical and shows your lack of connection with the soul of racing. The output of your computer programs diminishes passion for the good old fashioned excitement of the races. To be honest, for someone so dedicated to posting on a horse racing website, I actually feel sorry for you that you are missing the bigger picture of how great these horses are and just how spectacular this sport truly is. My wish for you, my friend, is that you turn off your program for one weekend and handicap the races off of that beloved paper racing form. Watch the replays of the entrants and get a true feel for their power. Handicap from yourself like your life depends on it. I guarantee that you will enjoy that weekend more than you have in years. As usual, much luck to you my friend.
Mallios, this is my first post in many many months here. I was compelled to completely agree with how "Mr. Rodriguez" is a true professional, completely deserving of his top notch horses and probably one of the classiest horsemen in the business. He showed his patience and endurance with getting Vyjack back to health and back where he belongs, in the winners circle. No matter how a race unfolds, slow, fast or normal, the name of the game is winning and this is what Rudy and his connections did in the great Kelso Stakes race. Congratulations on a much deserved win and no matter what anyone says to the contrary, most likely they did not have a winning ticket! Just keep that in the back of your mind when the self proclaimed "best handicappers" knock any horse. Without a doubt, they ripped up their tickets 10 seconds after the race!!!!!!!!!!
Wow! I am also very happy to see him next week on turf. Perfect. Thanks Ghelguera! Laz, you were right all along, I just had Belmont dreams on my head during the trail. But yes, the Secretariat stakes is the goal. What a horse!!!
I dont know yet Laz, but he ran that on the dirt. There is something so special about this one and I truly think that he has alot more than meets the eye. Saw Samraat also working at 6f but nowhere near as good.
Worked out at 6f in 1:12.00. This one just plain gives me the chills. Cant wait to see him in that gate again.
At 5f, if he takes after his big brother even just a little bit, he easily strides past this field! Its so exciting!
Jenna, Jacksons little brother, Southern Barbecue, debuts on Sunday R8 at Gulfstream. I cant wait to see him cross that finish line!!!
I love the fields that you all put together, however I would add one more to the field, who I believe would be at the wire for his 17th consecutive win...Ribot.
Yes Buck, we do have that going! I have a feeling that we all may gravitate to one thread each night and just do our normal thing! There is no other way!
Thats a pretty boy!
