Where have those 120 Beyer horses gone?
I miss them. You should, too.
When I broached the subject of this column to Andrew Beyer, he said it was going to be depressing reading.
True enough, but also, hopefully, educational.
I have questions. Perhaps, somebody has answers.
The 2011 Breeders' Cup Classic got a 104 Beyer Speed Figure. Those horses are supposed to represent the best of the best and that is the best the winner, Drosselmeyer, could do.
It was eight lengths from first to last, the very definition of mediocrity.
