Hogwash....Furosemide would have made little difference last weekend and will make little difference later. If this colt can cut it long as the pretenders fall back, HIS inherent abilities will do it NOT some drug.
was inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame last year. Other greats who ran their last race in Canada: Man O'War, Cigar, Northern Dancer, Exterminator Wise Dan visited us too and set a track record effortlessly.
experts? If you talked to DRF or Teletimer people yes, not the talking head on the tube!
rail horse really 1/9?
no better example is Materiality's last two. Was far slower in his last but got a substantially higher Beyer and they both disregard pace to that final time.
Hogwash NO ONE knows that...pure baloney
QUOTE: "23 4/5 first quarter and a 47 2/5 half is a pretty swift pace!" Do yourself a favor get Monarchos, I'll Have Another, Barbaro, Kauai King, Giacomo, Proud Clarion, Chateaguay, Northern Dancer and Spend a Bucks splits are to see what a fast Derby pace looks like.
The REASON fractions SLOW during a race is due to exertion and ananerobic physiology.......Pace early costs them late and each race has horses of different exertion abilities. If a track is really slow (like Mahoning Valley) that fact is universal to all fractions NOT just the final one.
do yourself a favor and read Dr. Quirin and Modern Pace Handicapping. EACH races is a MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE combination of running styles and segmental velocity standards and the interaction of those are what makes EACH race the way it is. They are ALL different and one to one comparisons are useless.
Belmont winners are sustained masters: they run 25's all around the track not some big late move...Just look at the last 30 charts to see the trend.
