Ran The Last Q 25.40 < or faster in 9f + race , Tough for a front runner and its been done before.
strong angle for the win. !
Early Voting skipping the Derby is a Big deal, He is ranked number 1 by bris for Prime Power scored at 150.6
Next in line is Simplification now number one 148.2 oh And Messier tied at 148.2 both, Simplification was 3rd in his last race
lost to White Abarrio next with a score 147.4 , interesting, looks like Bris have Florida Derby and Wood ranked the best preps
by the prime numbers. Mo Donegal 146.7 is next, Smile Happy 146.6, Charge It 146.1 all ranked ahead of Epicenter and Zandon.
Who would of thought > the old scoring subtract 8 points from the Number 1 score. 148.2= 140.2 , anybody lower than 140.2
toss for the win. That's from In Due Time 139.9 and lower . That moves up 3 more within 8 points , that were toss's
with Early Voting score 150.6, now the 3 Tawny Port 142.1, , Cyberknife,141.6 and Skippylongstocking 141.2 didn't make the field.
Smarty- you always come up with great data points!
thanks, Maybe that real Hot day during the Florida Derby had something to do with the real slow late numbers
in that race. I don't know.
Didn't someone mention there was a headwind for the Florida Derby?
yes , I heard headwind and sidewinds and hot , tomorrow we may get the track variant and its been
reported GP has had timing problems on many days.
This year more than any year I can remember, post position and trip will have a lot more meaning. Too many of these are so close that being too wide or having a bit of trouble will be difficult to make up. No one stands that far above. I've got to hope Rosario gives the wide trip he usually gives me when I need him, and not the practical joke type of ride where he went right to the rail. EP Front runners more likely to get their trip and avoid the trouble if they can last and keep pace down. SH on a far post will put him too wide as he was in the BG. Frenchie will be choking his as usual so you cannot count on the EP. I think I'll be leaning to the speed horses filling in with some of the later runners, but there as not been a lot of late runners other than Zandon, I'm inclined to toss all those Wood LP figs. TTB is interesting to me as I liked his race, but have not seen where I think he can translate that to real dirt to be effective.
