Not a fan of either horse, but it sure looked to me like GOD should not of let that lead slip away in a 1 1/8 race, with the race falling apart after the half. WTC was doing nothing while being scrubbed on hard, barely beating a tired, not able to get 1 1/8 GOD
Palace Malice owns him next year.
Palace Malice had every right to be wide, as he had first run on WTC. They make it sound like Palace Malice pushed him wide. He was already wide and WTC went wider. Had nothing to do with pushing him wide. If WTC was in a bad spot, then Palace Malice was in a pretty bad spot also.
What's so shocking and unexpected about it? And whats the legend?
Palace Malices' race was a complete throw out race. Didn't leave the gate, which completely hampered his running style. He tried to get back into it, but just had way to much to do. We all know what he is capable of when he gets to run his race, which unfortunately this year, didn't happen often enough. You can't run the way he did and expect the result to be any different than it was on Saturday. I knew it was over for him as soon as the gate opened. Very frustrating.
He had nowhere to go, as opposed to "he didn't know where to go"
