The debate --- which horse can run all day???  I think it's Master Fencer.

Well since he just jogs for the first half mile or so you may be right

all of them can run all day. they're thoroughbreds.   

I never understood that expression.  LOL

But running all day isn't the same as running in a race, where you have to get to a certain point *first*.

At least Master Fencer won’t get pumped with lasix.I hated the end of his latest work.The exercise rider got way too whip happy.

Yeah, I wonder what that was all about?   I was thinking to myself that he was testing to see what direction horse would shy toward when whipped.  I guess better to find that out now than in a crowded field.   But most of these horses don't need whipping.  If properly trained, all they need is a "reminder" to turn on their afterburners, or "let's go!" kind of thing, like if they are gawking, etc.   Whipping them doesn't make them be able to run 5 more furlongs on wobbly legs, right?

Watching Game Winner get whipped multiple times just makes me sad.  I want to leap onto the screen and grab it away.  

I edited out my early picks, as today I am looking at some new things that may make me change my mind on a few things.  At any rate, I really need to see post positions, even though they aren't that important for Belmont, one of my angles requires it.

You are much more tolerant than I am Winter.If I got my hands on the whip I would let the jockey experience what it feels like
