Over the years you can probably count on one hand the number of times I have criticized a ride. I did not like Smithís ride. He used the horse hard enough to take a clear lead from Jackieís Warrior! Then instead of saving some ground he rode like he was planning on floating some closer way outside or the rail was bad (it clearly wasnít) and allowed Jackieís Warrior to cut the corner (giving up a length or more) Then after using the horse to get the lead like that he didnít start riding again until about the 1/8th pole. Then he started coming back. If I owned that horse Iíd feel like he cost me a Grade 1 and have to make a change. Smith is an all time great, but that one shouldnít be on his resume.
Agreed. It was terrible ride. If he takes the rail after he cleared and made Jackie's Warrior move outside I think he wins.
