I understand what you mean. Itís like the lure of Saratoga to the small track American owners/trainers. Of course the goal should always be to place your horses in the most logical positions to give them a shot but sometimes, you just want to do something for the experience.

I would much rather win races here then run good 4th and 5th over there. To each his own though. For me it's not even close. Yoshida going there makes 0 sense to me. He could have won major stakes races at Belmont the last 2 weeks.

Precisely and if going to Ascot to experience the spectacle continues to be practiced with the marginal US stock, the ramifications could be purses deflating at NYRA in the affected races. Turf racing has grown in interest a lot in 25 years and to have lack of sponsorship and poor judgment thwarts it can't be a positive IMO
