1st off 22 feet is nothing, 2nd 5 lbs does make a small difference, small but a little effect at the end. I would say that Baffert had Dortmund in better shape than Chrome when he came back. Baffert new he had a great measuring stick to see just how good Dort can be, and he answred, big time. Both horses A+ performances. hope Beholder is game latter this year.
The only way Songbird has anyone within 2 lengths is if she turns out to be a very poor shipper. I doubt this will be the case. And your crazy if you pick an upset winner at 6-5 or 2-1. Give me 4-1, 5-1 on Carina and then you might get my money
Well @ MIKE Stache, you did post it! If you take out a pencil and do the, math the real numbers are,
Chrome 38.47 MPH
Dortmund 38.32 MPH
Assuming TRAKUS got the distances correct...
Numbers mean a lot in this game, so one should be sure to pass around correct numbers thats all.
An outstanding race by both horses. Makes me wonder if Chrome is the best out there and Dortmund can improve his 2nd or 3rd race back... that puts Dortmund right were he wants to be first week in November.
or "Z" coming from behind. Unbelievable!"
Mike if your going to throw out stats make sure they are accurate. You might want to recalclate the MPH.
Early on he was one of the derby favorites, Ive always liked this one.
Nice wire job, with Tapit blood it seems he could prosper at 10f, just doesnt look like it on the track. Perhaps he will improve 2nd race back. Had high hopes for this one
Nice win for MS. Becoming a very solid turf horse, but far from Tepinish...
if she continues to beat the boys times, it might be a logical place to put her. Im thinking they will want to have her become the new Beholder if she starts taking on the boys
