Mary, it was terrific meeting you and reading the posts of your Breeders' Cup experience. When did you find time to do interviews??? LOL. Looking forward to next year.
Enjoyed seeing a compilation of your photos. It was a real pleasure meeting you and look forward to doing it again next year!
Well edited video, really enjoyed seeing the BC from your perspective.
Nice looking colt. I'll add him to the first 2014 Derby watch list
this is some amazingly detailed research. All new (and maybe some of us seasoned) 'cappers should try keeping track of their bets for at least a few months to see where their strengths/weaknesses lie. I'm sure you'll turn more of a profit now that you know what your strengths are. Great job!
Go Between suffered a fatal heart attack a couple of years ago after working out at Payson Park. He was a barn favorite and one of my closest friends. I was devestated when he died. Dr. Jim did everything he could, but it was too late. RIP beautiful guy.
Thanks for the correction. Afleet Again was 2nd ni his optional claimer. Thanks everyone for your kind remarks and I'm glad you like the article!
and that's why we call it handicapping! Your post about population vs single entity, there's the whole problem with the Nicking tools. Nicks are only worth noting if the sire has runners from the mares of the broodmare sire. OR, if he is a new sire, his 1st tail sire from the broodmare sire. True Nicks uses "X" sire and his sons and grandsons and "Y" broodmare sire and his sons/grandsons" how vague can you get?? Yet they charge big bucks for this "pedigree tool." Travel_Vic...pass me the genetic dice, will ya?
Thanks for the compliment CauseForConcern. Normally, I do consider a sire's previous history with a surface in makng an assessment. However in Student Counciil's case, he has only two winners in the last year over synthetics. 1 maiden winner in England over Poly and a mdn. winner over the Tapeta at GG. School has been cross-entered in the Bouron for Sunday, which may suit him better.
