...come up with a new strategy then Hansen could be counted out as well. Seeing the Gotham stakes I do believe they could have a successful run even by holding him back just a little bit. Like said before closets could benefit should the frontrunners run out of steam. Essentially I agree with comments stating this is essentially a rabbit and nothing more. Of course anything is possible I just think the owner/trainer is entering because they can and not because they are doing good for anybody.

While the derby is one of those races that pretty much anything can happen, I would still think this is a ridiculous idea. Sure no other horse may have run this far either but the fact remains that they are much better equipped to run this distance. Being one of the biggest races in America its just a bad decision both for business and for the horse to test his endurance in such a big race. Sure they have a small chance of all conditions permit, to win, but he has a much bigger chance to showcase the bad decisions of the stable in front of millions of people.

I think its important to remember horse racing does take luck- A horse having a good day, with a winning jockey who is experienced, calm and collected, a good post position draw, etc. can all make a sub par horse decimate a field of better horses. Personally I believe the reason I see all these capable horses drop out of the derby in the last furlongs is linked more or less to their jockey on the day of the derby. Jockey gets too excited=major mistakes=losing horse. I still like to believe in the horse himself so I will still bet on Hansen because I think he is more than capable of winning. However, stating a horse was lucky in winning a race is like saying somebody won 20,000 dollars winning poker because they where lucky- of course they where lucky, horse racing just like poker is about luck. Its about hoping that the day brings you every factor that you need to win.
