The grass has been rock hard since it was revived for the 2016 season. To establish "give," a device called the GOING STICK is used. https://www.pitchcare.com/magazine/the-going-stick.html. In theory, it should be a good average of the shearing forces through the surface, but in watching in use, it seems very subjective in its application. Rather than the penetrometer (the traditional engineering device used previously in Europe), where a set weight is dropped from a set height to determine the "give", it is just poked into the ground. Higher the number, the "less" gve there is. Numbers of a fast track run 10 and above, but over the last two cards, it has been reported at almost 12.

I never quite understood the word TROLL until Amino came along ..... another in the LONG line of ultracrepidarians.
Software had the race evaluated as 10 6 8 1 4 and the super was 6 1 10 8 for a $1.00 super of $1168.05. I I could post the screen shot if I could.
I was at Golden Gate when some dolt brought back Kissin' George in a 8K cleaner at age 8. Poor thing still had it from the gate, but after 4 furlongs he was done. They dropped him into 6250, then 5000 before he disappeared again, RIGHTLY SO.
your track record of late does NOT engender much confidence,,,You know it is ROI not just a single day's results that counts
Crowd abandoned the Ex Queens Plate winner only to get burned at 10/1. Odd, but the top 5 odds horses ran 1 2 3 4 5 yet paid handsomely. Turfers require a review of the ENTIRE record, not just the recent ones alonge.
a six horse field is a poor place to go after a wager. Contenders: 5 Tough It Out
6 Gold Rush Dancer 1 Ralis
4 Midnight Ming
Best two lines ever 1 Ralis 5 Tough It Out
6 Gold Rush Dancer 4 Midnight Ming
at the wire 4 3 8 1
