I believe that is what Pletcher is doing
That maybe one explanation or the one that always comes to mind when the big outfits drop is the horse was running over its head so the trainer could justify their $125 a day rate or the owner thought he had the next Arrogate. Now that the horse has run two or three times the drop is the last step before a significant trainer change to a less competitive track. Since the IRS write offs are pretty solid the days of dropping in December for tax benefits are gone.
Remember the NJ horseman got you here now do the right thing with the purses!
