"t_v is just a petty old man," and you're just plain petty. Like I advised you, buy a book. Learn what horse racing's about. It might take quite a few years but I have faith in you. Someday after my bones turn to dust you'll be right about something. What I don't know, but random chance coupled as an entry with time gives you a slight chance.
I guess it wasn't obvious if I had to diagram it, was it??
If it's possible, set aside the competition and the fact the projected pace scenario played out perfectly for SB. Just looking at that horse. Watching the big fella run left me salivating for more. If he goes in the BCC we'll see what he has then. I was hoping they would geld Wicked Strong. He's a monster to run that kind of race after his pre race antics. JMO so if it differs from yours keep that in mind as we all tend to see thing from our own perspective. Unfortunately many times we get blind sided by biased perspective. I have many times to my misfortune while gambling.
I would estimate 115
That wasn't an average pace for that track and distance. It was fast. This isn't an opinion it's a documented FACT! If Bayern isn't engaged early he wins followed by WS and Tonalist. You just have to be from NYC. All those books available and still don't know how to watch a race. Spend A Buck!!!
You might want to see the surface (baked clay) he ran on. Here's a link.
He got lucky with the pace meltdown when Tonalist kept Bayern honest. If he let him go it's another outcome I think. Tonalist is a horse to watch at this distance with a favorable pace. He should contend in any company after watching that run today. Nothing against V.E. Day it's just what happened.
Victory in Europe Day. As for holding him off, no, WS was used up due to his pre race tantrum. I doubt they'll geld this one, but if they do and it takes he'll be one of the premier dirt horses in n/a.
I almost pulled my bet when I saw 6 people trying to hold Wicked Strong, and calm him down, and go to post lathered. I would love to see this horse run a race without having a tantrum. No other horse running today could run a race like that after using all that energy. The last quarter was 26.1/5 ?
Trifecta- Wicked Strong/Bayern, wt Wicked Strong/Bayern, wt Tonalist <
