None of that means that the horses that run in those non-approved Grade 1s aren't quality horses.

Racing nationally has been on a decline for several years now. You could probably pick apart every individual Grade 1 race over the years and find a few duds.

That said, the 2014 Cigar Mile was...

You shouldn't make a calendar switch because of one "off" year. Since the NYRA Mile was switched to late November (it used to be 2 weeks before the BC) it has routinely drawn good fields that often...

Ride reminds of me of when Eddie D. & Corey Black stiffed A.P. Indy & Flying Continental in the 1992 Belmont & 1990 Jockey Club Gold Cup, respectively.

I think a fair compromise to the debate here...

Loggins' best work is obviously the Caddyshack soundtrack but nevertheless, you're breaking the law:

It could be legit. But Cox's detailed reasoning about running 3 races in a short period rings hollow in the face of his handling of dual champion Essential Quality who basically did (with great...

The horses that have won out of there (aside from the horse Loggins failed to beat) have won what appear to be slow races. There were faster races (raw times) on the each of the days those horses...

Fair enough; I think we are basically on the same page. I'm usually wary of track record performances, too, the exceptions being when top horses make a habit of beating the clock. That's my reason...

By "one off" I meant an obscure horse setting a record without a prior or subsequent performance that validates the effort.

One offs I would tend to agree.

Ruffian broke/equaled the stakes/track record in nearly every race she ran in, spanning distances from 5.5 furlongs to 12 furlongs. Easily enough to be one of the greatest fillies of all time.
