Sonner or later a few of the horses Greatest Honour has been beating will make their way to NY or another circuit and we'll get a better line on the quality of those races. To me they look a below...

I've been asking for this for DRF/formulator charts for a long time. You should be able to toggle back and forth between both options. The PP version gives you a better feel of the race flow.

I don't envy figure makers these days.

Everyone knows my often repeated views on the problems making figures.

1. There are technical complexities related to run ups, rail settings, and timer...

Yeah, imo this was one of the situations where when he crossed the finish line he was still loaded with energy. It's not so much that he could have run faster if he wasn't eased in the last few...

It's hard to tell on TV, but he looked like a long sleek horse to me yesterday. Some horses prefer running outside, but the wider you go the less sharp the turn too. Maybe he's the type that will...

Second money in a 750K race was worth the trip. ;) Better than 3rd, 4th, or whatever in the San Felipe running against his 2 big horses out there.

I have to watch the replays for paths, but I...

When he wasn't making up ground at the point the rider would typically be asking and then a horse ran right by him, I thought he was coming up empty. But once he got outside and actually asked that...

It's funny you asked because I was just wondering that.

In this case, I think it's likely he's avoiding his own monsters back in CA. However, you would think he knew this was not going to be the...

I'm a way bigger fan of trainers like Brown, Pletcher, Shug, Baffert, Cox etc... sticking with a horse and demonstrating confidence than some other trainers (and again I'll leave it at that). It...

It would be more encouraging if it was some other trainers (and I'll leave it at that ;)).

I didn't see much of an excuse for him in his last other than being wide. Last time I was just trying to...

I don't know CA racing anywhere near as well as you, but the same thing holds true for me. When the racing switches over to LRC I sometimes take a look at the weekend stakes. I never look at GG even...

I don't play Arlington except for on the big turf day. I wonder how much of that was related to staying with a synthetic surface. Once the majors starting switching back to dirt, Arlington starting...

I'm kind of in the middle on this.

I used to love taking advantage of biases, but imo there are fewer opportunities now and they have become more complex.

Not only do you have deal with biases when they exist, the maintenance crews...

There's absolutely zero question there are a lot of false positive tests based on the PCR cycle threshold being used in the tests.

He's a good horse.

He's a victim of the hype he received from some people when he was a 3yo.

If he was my horse, I'd take him back, make one late run, and hope the race fell apart. It's...

Even I was disappointed with his effort today. Personally, I think they'd be better off sitting further off the pace and making a single run with him. If you use him at all that's when he...
