1 1/4 mles is the most important distance, Spalding.

And yes, just because they wear fancy hats at the Derby doesn't mean we forget that it is a restricted race.

Accelerate by far. Justify never ran in an unrestricted race and ran speed figures several lengths slower.

I agree, if HOTY is about popularity, Justify wins.

The problem is a lot of us think it is about achievement and winning the races that draw the fastest horses.

If your figures gave Justify big numbers I can't argue that obviously. I do know that Justify's Beyers for the TC were pretty ordinary. Put Accelerate in the Preakness and he wins by a distance.

The actual competition kept on losing to Accelerate. Whereas in those years you mentioned they took turns beating each other and left it open for the 3 year old.

Accelerate beat stakes winners. He...

I don't think that's the main issue.

The main issue is Accelerate had a classic HOTY season, winning a bunch of major stakes at 1 1/4 miles including the BC Classic. Justify was a 6 race 5 month...

Let's suppose Justify loses the Preakness by a nose.

Now who gets HOTY, him or Accelerate?

So basically running a half length faster made the difference?

Let's add the breakage (California breaks to 10 cents on the dollar), so that's an additional 4.5 percent.


So the takeout is about 20 percent.

The takeout is pretty low. It's not like a show pool. There is one payout and one breakage.

I actually think this is a very good idea. It could both attract show-betting type novices and offer some value to experts.

I think you underrate Candy Ride as a sire. (Agree with you about City Zip though.) Game Winner is a very legitimate Derby horse.

There's truth to this, but there's also truth to the fact that he can sometimes get horses to wake up and run huge. I would argue Bravazo's Preakness is a great example of this.

And bear in mind,...

I wonder if having a synthetic main track affects these decisions any. Turf/synthetic is an easier move than turf/dirt.

Sunny Jim and the Jones boys were equally dominant in their day, but never did it. (Jones ran 1-2 in 1948.) So I say no.
