I don't think he was uncomfortable so much as loaded down the backstretch. That said, the race Saturday was basically a 2nd condition allowance contest.

Regardless of the figures, I don't have high hopes for Express Train, Medina Spirit, Parsimony, or Speed Pass going forward.

Another from the barn won by 9 lengths "geared down" at Fair Grounds two minutes after that.

Was it the same panel that voted to retire Tiz The Law that came up with the 'order of preference' for the invitees?

G**damn public education system.

I'm not too embarrassed, though.

Not sure what your criteria is for "talent" other than an unbeaten record. You keep saying Charlatan has won at 9f but he hasn't; he was disqualified in AK for testing positive for a local...

Authentic was one of the worst training jobs in recent memory. The horse was a uncontrollable run-off, couldn't break cleanly from the gate, couldn't run in a straight line. How the supposed GOAT...

Right, but that's just the point.

Charlatan proved that he had neither the stamina nor the soundness to win the Triple Crown.

He was unable to run at 2 to be a legit contender in a normal year and...

Charlatan didn't qualify for the Kentucky Derby, was just an allowance in winner with 2 starts under his belt in April, and has never won a 9 furlong race.

You continue to be overly enamored by these sprinters simply because they prove to be able to sit the garden trip in small fields rather than being one dimensional frontrunners.

Yep, although I would even say that the Malibu would have been a better spot than the Mathis Brothers. He'd get a cutback (I think he won his only sprint start with a rider on his back) and a hot...

Looks like my point was moot. Firstly, post-race the trainer said he was likely for the Fair Grounds races. Secondly, you don't get Derby points if you run on lasix so he has to come off if he...
