Nope ...just looked at Top 4 spots , like I said ....I can care less how many horses have run under a dosage of 1.00 in the Derby ... You want to laugh about ...it's cool bud ...no hard feelings ... have a good day
you said "Sire is Danehill who sired Dylan Thomas"
If you are talking about COH pedigree his sire is Noble Mission and Danehill is his BMSire
As you know Noble Mission is a full brother to Frankel.
You should care.....the point being made to you is quite simple. For example, if NO horses with dosage under 1 entered the Derby, of course none would have hit the board.
Another way of looking at it, is: How many horses with that dosage did NOT hit the board? That will help us with the relevancy....

Yes, that was a "whole sentence typo" on my part. :) I meant BMS
Since he's been in my top 3 favs all season, I have his pedigree chart hanging on the wall in front of my desk. ;)
Most people have him running 11th or so.
Which is very possible. That doesn't mean I don't like him a whole lot, just as a horse.
you guys know I like McGaughey, heck he was amazing with Personal Ensign, Easy Goer, etc. Would just love to see him run big here, he's very good with distance horses. Remember back in 2010 I think we may have still been having contests then, not sure, but I was picking Persistently for the Personal Ensign stakes, I kept saying "heck the trainer trained the darn horse the race was named after!" anyway, Persistently was over 20-1 odds at the time, and she did win.
I don't think CoH would have it easy in the derby, he has quite a lot of knocks and everything would really have to go his way......

TM, you're the one who Brought it up! I wouldn't even be part of the conversation had you not posted that meme.
And yes, no hard feelings.....we are all friendly here, I was just pointing out the error in the way you computed that.....I thought I was doing you a favor, pointing out that years, w/out giving the actual number of horses who made the Derby gate with a dosage of less than 1.00, is just useless. The other part about finding stuff humorous had nothing to do with you, since I even said I was referring to other places/forums/stuff I read. I was not laughing at you. But I WAS arguing with you, for sure. Not the heated kind though.
No problem with you at all Winter , but thanks for the reply ...
I get the point ....
GL in the Derby
Happy Ending. Best of luck to you in this mind-boggling race!
