Not judging you at all. Just giving you some very solid, friendly advice. Have a great day DR! You are the best.
DR, you seem like a great guy and I respect the fact that you make your picks known, stick with them and don't back down. Just one piece of advice for you ... everyone knows that your "staff" consists of two cats and a hamster. We also know that you do not calculate speed figures that are better than Beyer's. All I ask is that you stop with all the grandiose B.S. You're a good dude DR. You don't need to impress anyone ... people will respect you more if you just be yourself. Have a great day and I wish you the best of luck on the Derby!
The Ark Derby proved nothing regarding his ability to get a mile and a quarter. It only proved that no horse can go that far with early fractions being run that fast. Anyone who's ever followed horse racing already new that. The race CLEARLY proved nothing about distance limitations or lack there of.
Here's where you're in trouble ... I 100% agree with everything you just said. And I'm usually dead wrong :-)
Agreed on the closer angle. I always have one exotic ticket with strictly long shot closers hoping for another Giacamo (50-1)/Closing Arguement (70-1) type monster payday just in case it's a wicked speed dual up front.
Danzing Candy will definitely be gunning for the lead - it's the only way he's ever ran. I do not see them trying to place Cupid up front in the Derby. He's rated well before - no reason to send him. Not sure why people think he's a need the lead type horse - he's clearly not based on past performance.
What makes you think he's a front runner? He seems very versatile to me as he has come from well off the pace. The mile and a quarter is a completely different question - no idea if that will be within his reach.
DR, I'm curious to know what color the sky is in the world you live in becasue it seems like a really cool place.
It's a far cry from reality, but cool none the less.
Keep dream'in my friend!
DR, I truly do like you and I enjoy reading your posts, but please be realistic. Writing ability and sentence structuring are a very good indication of a person's intelligence. And based on your's, I have a hard time believing you can count to 10 let alone come up with a formula to calculate more accurate speed figures than what DRF uses. With that said, please keep posting - I always enjoy what you have to say. Just lay off the b.s. a bit.
Have a great day Sir.
DR, are you saying you calculate your own speed figures?
