The 4 had to steady to avoid clipping heels when the three came out down the backside. Seems a bit ticky tacky since you would have needed a search party to find the 4 at the end of the race. Fairly...

Considering how races are run in the UK and France, and how bunched the fields are turning for home, it is not a bad idea there. Here, it would make absolutely no difference except possibly for turf...

I was going through some old DRFs from my misspent youth. You know what was most apparent-- the number of starts per year-- as well as the lack of crazy form reversals. You could look at the PPs for...

I cannot tell you how pissed off I was when NYRA pushed him aside. He was a horseplayer through and through, one of us, and he didn't treat us like depraved addicts.

Maple reminded me a lot of Jean Cruguet, not in riding style per se, but they were kind of null factors, rarely making a difference one way or the other in a horse's performance. Didn't move 'em up...

The Massachusetts Fair Circuit was ripe for chicanery. Very large betting pools compared to purses, and plenty of ways to lose on a bullring without being too obvious.
