    The funniest part on repeat viewing is how the horse looked like he was almost past that starting gate before his second detour. He must have made almost a 90 degree turn on the fly to get around it, then nearly won anyway. If he had just gone on a straight line, he could have won by a huge margin!

    Update - the "X Man" and Spicer Cub took to the turf for the first time today (8/7/13) at Delaware Park - Race 8 - and won with plenty of 'you won't beat me' grit to battle back!

    This is his second consecutive victory: he won at Pimlico on July 1st in a Maiden Special Weight on dirt taking it by 3 3/4 lengths.

    I think he's found that racing is more fun when you don't veer off course

    Definitely didn't win at Pimlico in July since they go dark the day after Belmont. That was Delaware as well.

    Yep my mistakes with a glance of the PP.

    I was in that race so I didn't need the PPs!

    "Dude, I'm so tired of running around this big oval. Can't we just go over heeere? No? Aww, c'mon! How about heeere?"

    That was wild! So glad it ended well -- it could have very easily been a disaster.
