How can he be overrated? He won all his preps, triple crown, and the breeders cup. he was 2nd in the Travers. ??? If you think he was better than Secretariat, then yes hes overrated. Top 20 of all time, probably properly placed.
2 things here
1- Hes never run at Churchill, so he cant really be a horse for course.
2- Hes never had more than a 5 week lay off, so nobodys saying that it takes him a while to get into form,they are saying that horses in general run better their 2nd or 3rd time out after a long lay off.
Ive got tons of reasons why you should take a stand against him. #1) He will be at 7/2 at best. To much trip trouble is possible in a 20 horse field to justify those odds. #2) Stamina, I dont have to explain this, everyone knows his breeding lacks 10 furlongs. #3) He prefers the lead, or rating just off the lead. Even with a lack of speed horses, I doubt he will see :47 and change the first half mile like he has in his other route races #4) not sure he has enough turn of foot the last 1/4 mile to fend off all the high quality closers. Im not saying he's not the best horse but at juicier odds Im taking...
Gun Runner 10/1
Im not sure how an undefeated horse out of Tapit and winner of 3 graded stakes could have been over rated?? HMMM, a less than intelligent comment.
Train wreck is a type of Marijuana, he must mean she is the BOMB!
well we will know in a month because shes gonna have to earn some derby points to get in, so she would have to run in the SA derby first and take 1st or 2nd to get enough points to get in.
This totally stinks for us beholder fans but that's horse racing it happens every year. thank goodness there's a trainer like Mandela to make the immediate right decisio. look on the bright side for us gamblers now two horses with decent odds can land in your trifecta
agreed, this horse is truly amazing
Its called a "BLOG" which means its her opinion, and its ok to disagree with her. If you look closely you'll notice there is no betting advice therefor no need to post handicapping stats.
this horse has NO distance issues, look at his pedigree, and then whatch him run
