Yeah, yeah, it is easy to be a back seat jockey...
What the heck was with Tyler Baze falling off #4 "SWITCH" after they crossed the finish line? (No he was not hurt & is riding mounts the rest of the day.)
He gave the horse a less than stellar ride. Kept a strong hold on her on the backside; so much so I ended up yelling, "Let her go! Let her go!" at the computer screen. She was beat by a 1/2 length in a close three way finish.
I think she could have easily had it had he actually let her run.
What a cr@ppy steering job he did too. Nope, don't think the mare is a tough steer at all. Especially from the head on view. Looks like he had to keep correcting his oversteering of her. For those not able to watch a replay, no vast steering corrections required. Simply nitpicking over every step out of straightest line possible, of course, loses ground.
