03/07/2013 Jay Hovdey : Kentucky Derby point system a game-changer :
In 2004, the leggy gray Giacomo tipped his mitt by finishing second to division champ Declan’s Moon in the CashCall Futurity. However, his performance in a series of early 2005 events emptied his bandwagon of all but the most fervently loyal. He was third in the Sham, second in the San Felipe, and fourth in the Santa Anita Derby, which put him right where trainer John Shirreffs wanted him – except for the fact his 36 points might have fallen short of a place in the gate.
“Really?” Shirreffs said. “No kidding? I haven’t been following the points system that closely. Sounds like one of these Nintendo games, where you look to grab points here and there to run up your total. Then can you jump from one level to the next. Who knows?”
Like Giacomo??? ... from the Gormley barn :)
Still looking for a longshot myself ... or Unique Belle :)
Mastery has Shared Belief's damsire, Storm Cat, as his 2nd damsire. Old Trieste was very talented but only had 3 crops. Pedigree won't trip Mastery up.
Negative guessing about distance limitations is so easy ...
7/2 ML in the Risen Star looks like a gift ... O'Neill should redirect #14 So Conflated elsewhere :)
Baffert saw those SW colts and is shipping in American Anthem for the Rebel Win :)
You imply that Arrogate was never going to run in the San Pasqual because "Trust me there is a reason why ARROGATES races are spread out like they are. Everyone knows that" ... Is it Physical or Chemical or Financial or ???
