Maybe he should bet to place instead of win?
Highly informative. Thanks.
How or why so, if I may trouble to ask this late in the game?
Betcha didn't know that Commissioner's 10f split in the Belmont was 2:02.43. That puts him six lengths ahead of California Chrome's 2:03.66 for the Derby.
The safety and health of that maiden and the other horses - why keep running if he/she doesn't win? Also, a chronic maiden can do funny things to the odds.
Dang! Fergot about him.
Once upon a time, the Metropolitan Handicap - aka the Met Mile - was run between the Preakness and the Belmont. At a mile for 3 year olds and up, it doubled as a Belmont prep race as well as an...
Speaking of which: Rags to Riches nosed Curlin out of the 2007 Belmont. It'd be a longshot - he hasn't won a stakes race yet - but if Ride On Curlin was to avenge his old man it be poetic as well...
Jimmy Stewart was just as skinny as Sinatra in those days, and he flew B-24s in Europe.
Sometimes the dice roll a seven.
For perspective, the Derby Stakes in the U.K. - the "Darby," as they pronounce it - is a mile and a half. It's the middle jewel of their Triple Crown, run some about the same week as the Belmont,...

I see your point. Still, if a clone runs as fast as an original that would open a door to racing them,...
Unless, of course, they run just as fast as the originals.
Aside from that, I can see a brighter future in cloning body parts than the whole horse. Replacing a cannonbone or fetlock, for...
Nice to see the Bold Rulers back in the winner's circle again.
Here's a howler from that article:
The enthusiastic writer forgot that a hand is only is only 4 inches.
Maybe, but cloning hasn't been a joke for some years now.
But not impossible. Clyde Van Dusen and Smarty Jones came out of the 20.
He does now.
In Saratoga's case it was seating reconfiguration. The mile start was a 90-degree angled chute leading to the top of the clubhouse turn. They eliminated it to install high-priced bleachers (not...
