    It's a shame that North American racing doesn't have graded stakes races longer than 12f (not counting the 'chases.) On every other continent there's a least one 2-mile race every week.

    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.

    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...

    I see your point. Still, if a clone runs as fast as an original that would open a door to racing them,...
