Some good horses have won the Count Fleet, but none were running in it today.

A grade 2 for 3yr olds in January on the inner AQ track is a joke.

"They" being the graded stakes committee. So what's your point?

I am amazed that even you don't get annoyed by your own whiny (and very little) voice.

I don't understand why you care so much. You seem to get very worked up over things that are completely inconsequential to your life - race grades, who should be eligible and receive end-of-year awards, etc.

Yikes is right but a generous 85 beyer, probably to help save some credibility for the "Grade 2" race. Give beyer a day to adjust it. lol
Isn't the 85 Beyer essentially saying that both of the top 2 finishers ran to their last races? Is that so difficult to believe?

I was guessing the winner would need about an 88 before the race. They crawled home so that part was a little slower than expected so 85 seems about right. It's not a great number, not sure what difference it would make if it was an 81.

Don't you NYRA Cult members have some tractor pulling to do. lol

NYRA is like the Communist Party of horse racing. Corruption and Incompetence with no profit except for party members.

Instead of getting the trains to arrive on time they value getting the toilets and tractors to work. lol

"NYRA cult members"? What affiliation do I have to NYRA besides that I've been to Belmont and Saratoga?
