One of these days lol.  I got enamored with Thunder Snow and he totally had a melt down.  One would think they’d learn

Yeah but he sure made up for it in the course of his career!

The problem is that when they aren't prepared "U.S. style",  you're just going to keep having people think that foreign horses aren't any good.  

Thunder Snow had quite an amazing career,  he killed it except for about 4 races in his entire life (one of those being the KY Derby).... sixteen-and-a-half million $$ worth,  and I was so happy when his showed up his naysayers.  

So you gotta ask why a horse like this cannot do well in our KY Derby.  And the answer is why I handicap the KY Derby a little differently now than how I used to.  12F-14F pedigree?   That wont' win.  They have to have that killer dirt track speed that we love here.
