I personally love the dirt mile, seems to be one of the 2-3 best betting races every year. I wish they'd bring back the marathon! I dont think the lack of a full field, that is filled out with pretenders, dilutes the classic any more so than the lack of 2 yr old sprinters dilutes the KY Drby! And besides that, it is a time honored axiom that milers make the best stallions, so if you want to showcase "breeders".... whats wrong with the MILE??
Its no contest, I think Runhappy is one of the biggest freak's we've seen
I vote Tiznow. Giving you 4s x 6d Foggy Note through the full siblings, great grandsire Relaunch and Moon Glitter, 3rd dam of Tapit. Hailing from the elite line of matriarch Silver Fog......yes, I done my homework... lol
When does the final edition come out?
I've never been sold on Shared Belief, and still am not.....guess only time will tell, but I don't see him in the same league as C.C.
I can't believe with todays technology and the countless number of sheet & fig producers out there that NOONE else has noticed or mentioned that the fractions and/or time of this race is WAY OFF!! NO way they ran the final 1/4 in 17 & change OR took 3.6 seconds off the world record for this distance! lol
Obviously you missed the studies that show polytrack mearly changes WHAT injuries horses sustain, NOT prevent injuries! It is NOT safer than a well maintained dirt track, ie. Churchill, Belmont, Saratoga...and i'm sure KEENELAND. Besides, whats the point of a track having a turf and fake turf track and leaving out all dirt racing?!?
Very nice work!
Just watched Tapitsphere's race...WOW!! According to the chart, he ran his final 16th in under 6 sec?!? I"
