Mary this is why for right or wrong. When i rate my top horses,i go by how fast they consistently run at their very best. If i went strictly by so called accomplishments,the truth can sometimes be distorted. Don't get me wrong,more often than not,the fields are worthy of the classification. But what gets me is that many,because of their love for the winning horse. They refuse to accept when one of these situations arise.
5 Horses for $500K Grade 1 race . I do not blame the track at all for this. They did what they could to attract horses . I think Dortmund has the potential to be an absolute monster. But should he or anyone win this race , unfortunately a great injustice will be that they are G1 Winners. I think that there should be a little bit more of achallenge than this.
Is this the best that Cali can offer. In the past this was always a race filled with top horses. Based on the probables,if Bullet Bob decided to stay home. There would be a 3 horse race. Based on the entries below. Looks like Shared Belief in a walkover at 3/5 odds.
My apologies Double for failing to mention it. With your lies on betting. You are the missing link to the Jinx Trifecta. Let us just say that you are the 3rd Musketeer in this grouping. Again my apologies for not giving you your due credit earlier.
On Aqueducts daily wrap up show in NY. They said that McLaughlin said that he will run him before the New Year. So if he worked today, figure he will need 6 to 7 days to recover. That places him in a race between 12/26 and 12/31. A very important thing to keep an eye on. Who the Jockey will be on him. It will give you a barometer as to how good they think he will be. Irad Ortiz recently rode the 3 debut winners at Aq. last week. He though more than likely will be in NY then. If by chance he shows up to ride him.Then he at least is perceived to be special.
Who pray tell is everyone. He ran the best race of his life in defeat. Where is it that he got nothing from the race. What more could they have done. Going into the race,if they told Art Sherman that his horse would run the best race of his life,he would of signed up in a hearbeat. The only reason that he lost is that the 2 horses that beat him,also ran lifetime best races and had better trips. There is nothing more you can ask for.
Everything we say about horses is conjecture. The only opinion that should really matter to you is your own. As far as Sherman stating anything. I have learned that not only in Racing ,but in any Athletic field. When someone from Management offers an opinion,it most likely means nothing and has absolutely nothing to do with what they really want to do. Just my opinion. As far as SB is concerned,the race he lost is nothing i hold against him. Regardless if he won or lost,i just do not think he is as fast as the other 2.
I never look at Gallop outs during races,i only pay attention to them during a workout. Of course he was going to be a tired Race Horse after this race. This was a faster race than any 3yo ran this year. But please tell me,what does a gallop out have to do with the next race. That will be coming in 4 to 5 weeks down the line. I will tell you.....Absolutely nothing. Johnny Vs' interest was in winning the race and protecting his horse. He knew exactly how much or so little he had underneath him.Do you think he cared at all about letting him gallop out. i WILL TELL YOU A QUICK STORY ABOUT GALLOP OUTS. iT INVOLVED A 3 YO I WAS INVOLVED WITH AND A TOP TIER JOCK. He was making his debut at 6F,he was a late runner.Let me add he was a very valuable horse who they paid alot for and was working in excellent fashion. The race was a prep.The instructions were to let him settle and get acclimated,then let him run late while being clear. He made a great run from the top of the lane,yet the jock for whatever reason pushed him to gallop out past the wire. Guess what ,he mis stepped and broke down. I could care less about looking at his next race for betting purposes. You say he will be an underlay???? When i see the field and determine who is running,then i will determine that. Also you may have a different opinion of how they rate in the field. Mine is that if i have a horse who looks to be Even money or 4/5 and he goes off at 9/5. That is an overlay. Do you think i would bet against him using a horse who in my mind has no shot to beat him,,only because he is a price.
Please re -read my post, i did not attck you personally. I stated an obvious fact. I was also very nice in asking you to stop plagerizing my lines. I did not get mad for Liams Map with you or the others. I stated facts about how he ran and who he ran against. Somebody agreed with me.
Don't know about Snoop,but gave me the giggles
