It's like saying EddieD was only good on a closer or PVal was only good on a speed horse, obviously both of those rules of thumb are exaggerations. As is the conversation about JohnS training for slow-early,/fast-late is an exaggeration as pointed out by thinair....there was that sprinter 7 years ago that broke his maiden like a rocketship. But I've watched an awful lot of Sherriffs graded stakes stars who are dyed in the wool stone cold deep closers.Starine wrote: ↑Sat Jan 11, 2020 10:28 pmI'm not a trainer, but using a one-size-fits-all approach for all horses seems a bit short-sighted.
Lets start the list with the obvious Zenyatta.
Then there's Giacomo.
Who can forget those memorable stretch runs from Life Is Sweet?
Neko Bay didn't always get up in time, but he was a comin!
Your memory is better than mine, maybe you can remember the early speedsters that won Graded Stakes?.....
