Hit a small ex box 1-4-9, but don't ever talk to me about Tapwrit again. This guy can't close the deal.

That was a crawlfest, felt like it was a very slow race. In fact both the dirt stakes felt like the track was sticky and tough to be near the lead.

Also my opinion on YOSHIDA was wrong. I wasn't high on the horse when it came to dirt talent alone - His post position and possible forward advantage is what made me like him.

I have to REALLY credit those who picked the

was my 'key' horse in the entire race. He is a fighter. Showed it today.

Not the Woodward but Brown had three horses in the last race not one of whom could press the leader on a 27 first fraction and glacial 54 half. The Albertrani horse walked on the front end leading to a carryover for anyone who negotiated the first five races of the pick-6. Mind boggling.

Sunny Ridge in the 12 hole outbroke Zanotti and took his path to the rail trip. Poor Z got stuck super-wide around both turns.
I'll tell you though, that moment when he made his move on the turn was worth the price of the small bet.

Just to show the effects of Post Position, trip and ground loss. Yoshida breaking from post 1 got a perfect rail trip while Gunnevera, who was 2nd by 1 3/4 lengths had post 9 and ran 54 more feet or 6 3/4 more lengths.

Right with you Bob, and I love Gunny. HE just always seems to never get a good trip. In fact, almost always the worst.



Tough hard cranking colt that always runs his guts out.

Agree 100%. I didn't bet the race, but I was pulling for him.

Based on the trip -
Gunnevera and, Rally Cry both very likely outperformed the winner Yoshida.

Maybe Yoshida will be a good bet-against next time.

Usually I'd credit Rally Cry a lot more than Gunnevera because of being wide near an early pace.

This pace was a little tough to read. I'm leaning toward the idea that it was actually mildly forward-favoring. Kind of a weird race without much quality speed, and a lot of ground loss. Definitely a good late flow, but some of that may have just been that the closers are faster horses, and some of the decent forward/early horses lost ground.

Haven't seen prelim Beyers, but logical projection and watching the replay says that Leofric ran another mid-90s Beyer today (93-97?). He had a smooth trip and was 2 lengths off the winner at the line. We may well see the fig come out higher and Leofric being given credit for an improved race or a 'new top' or whatever in order to justify assigning the figs they want for Yoshida and Gunnevera.

I don't know what's worse these days: California graded turf stakes or New York graded dirt stakes? New York should just go full synthetic/turf like Woodbine.

Too bad they can't get horses to stay in lanes like human runners with staggered starts. To eliminate uneven ground loss some races in England as long as 10 furlongs are run on a straight but they lack the excitement of races around a turn. The horses are all spread out and it's hard to tell who's leading.
Guess we just have to trade some fairness for excitement.
