Please you old timers are a joke. Don't ever throw out old speed figs. Here are the meanings Beyer had published for his speed figures:
115+ the best horses in country
100+ good allowance horse or low-grade stakes horse
90+ a typical 25k claimer
Beyer is a moron & he's stuck in the past. Don't be like him, get with the times people. All the horses of your youth were juiced like bonds, Sosa & the rest of the league when HR records were falling.
Don't believe me. It's well reported Secritariat has the biggest heart of any thoroughbred. Now a experiment. Google does taking steroids enlarge your heart. #science #facts
147 year old record fell. Should of got a 130 speed fig.
I recommend you take a black sharpy throu the speed figs & make your own. The old guard is undoubtably stuck in the past.
Only reason Code West is being considered for Belmont is politics. Baffert, Rosie & everyone knows Code West has no chance at winning. Only the owners and maybe you.
Going to miss this horse. The undefeated king of a 1 1/6 mile distance.
Am I the only 1 fed up with the BSF's. They expalin them as 120's as the top stakes horses. Yet I'll Have Another runs almost as fast as Big Brown and gets scored 8 points lower. I'm tossing the BSF on that race and say that the top 4 horses in the Derby are all monsters and if you see one of the top 10 in a lower stake you should bury them because their speed figure is off by 6-8 pts from where it should be. The betting public will let a monster go off at 3-1 or better going by the BSF later this year.
And the Blue Grass was run a second faster than the Arkansas Derby. The Beyer system is broken.
Ramon should be on Hansen.
Nail on the head.
Wow. This race is going to be sick!!! Can't wait. Hansen is superstar. Prospective should be named Rocky the way he fights. Alpha could take another step forward. Gemologist beat a pretty good horse in Currency Swap and he was just getting the rust off. Our Entourage is bred to be a champion. Street Life showed crazy speed once he figured it out in the stretch on Sat. (expect a step forward). The Lumber Guy should be named The Likes To Run Really Fast Guy. I expect a four wide battle down the stretch with 2 horses closing. Love this time of year.
Great Trainer, Great Jockey, Great Horse, Great White Hope!
Of the 2 Baffert horses in the Southwest Secret Circle might be the most talent but I think Castaway may have a better chance to win the derby. Reminds me of The Factor a little bit. Might make 1 1/16 but I am going to bet thats his limit.
