I 100% disagree, but maybe thats because a mile has always been two turns that the tracks I have played.

What does that have to do with you saying you are "sure" he is running in a race a month from now?

I've seen three really good works (thank you XBTV) from possible sprint horses.

I think I'm priced in to Takaful in the Sprint(guessing PJ goes in the Dirt Mile).........of course I'll carry Drefong on the multi's.

Imperial Hint particularly benefits from El Deal's departure and should be strongly considered as a B.

I'm interested in Tribalist in the Turf Sprint. Think the 6.5 at Santa Anita is a touch far for him. And he loves Del Mar. His 3rd today hopefully will leave him with nice odds if he runs. Does anyone know if he is a definite (if healthy) starter in the BC?

I dont get why they ran him today, was baffling to me. Gotta think 3 races in 5 weeks is probably a bit much for him.

Does that mean Practical Joke is going to give it a go in the Sprint?
