I'd like to see the comparison between vaxed and boosted vs. unvaxed but recovered from Covid.

The also rans in the race aren’t running very fast but a number of them that got totally buried in that field have run faster or at least run back to their best form afterwards. There have been 4...

When Ruffian was running, I was just starting to get serious about racing. I still have a lot of old DRFs from the 70s, but none with her in them. I think the Ragozin folks say she wasn’t as fast as...

I think we are at the stage where every major factor has been covered in depth by multiple authors. That makes it tough to come up with new material.
