I'm 100% aware of who you're comments are referring to. The conclusion is what is comical. Not to mention the bolded comment above, followed by a comment that puts the spotlight on your disdain for him, wherever that may come from. His Whitney win, beating Liam''s Map running the race of HIS life (i know, because I bet the gonads off that fella that day as a Sheets play and couldn't believe he got nailed on the wire.) was what stamped him for me. It was an undeniably outstanding effort of the exact opposite of 'grinding' to a win. Although grinders don't run miles on the dirt in 1:33+, either.Retrospectiv wrote: ↑Tue Sep 03, 2019 7:11 pmI'm talking about the father, not the son, remember?Horsebagger wrote: ↑Tue Sep 03, 2019 4:10 pmLet's see what happens when Democratic Values debuts on Friday back at Belmont Park. Klaravitch/Brown/Castellano teaming up with a colt with a string of works on the main track at Saratoga that suggest he as some talent. Watch him work on xbtv.com in advance and tell me he's a one paced grinder.
I don't think so.
I never said HC never had talent, he very obviously did. But, there's no denying he had one run in him per race, from dead last usually. And he either made up the distance, or he didn't. I never cared for the fact the jock usually had at least one crack on his ass into him between the 1/2 and 3/4, just to get him motivated to get rolling. The Met Mile was by far his best win.
Thanks for driving the thread though with your thoughts. Very entertaining.
