What you just said, can you read Messier's pedigree in the same language you just wrote? Maybe I can follow you better using this pedigree. Thanks!
Definitely good angle for future bets, my main interest anyway.....also racing debut. Very few that debut in May or June ever win Derby; I think most winners debut in Aug or Sept., with a few in Oct/Nov.
Message 893 was meant for you Gerh ,I jumped ahead to another step on the angle I'm working on
for Epicenter and all , its not just the foal date, there is more. Check it out.
That use to be, we are in the age of Apollo and the window time frame might be 20 years at a guess .
I'll put the Next step up tomorrow for the angle
Messier has the goods big red and Buckpasser up the middle in a Passing Position.
Has a strong Derby Nick Sire/ Bms has won derbys
The angle I was working with updating Epicenter for Gerh
for Messier his dam is 9 on foal date ok under 10 years
her 3rd Crop hits the 4 and under that produces derby winners
Princequillo and Latroienne in a Passing Position
Blue Blood imo.
Gerh said...I think the winner won the Louisiana Derby.Wouldn’t be surprised if the Florida Derby provides the rest of the trifecta
I was on Epicenter as the horse nobody could beat, until this week. I suddenly realized he is vulnerable (I had the same feeling with EQ last year.....that he was such the obvious winner) but I do think it will be horses from FL race or if wet then Messier.
Now that classic causeway is back in --- CC scoped fine after the race, there was no physical excuse for him at all. He just got pressured by a horse who wasn't going to let up on him, and the excuse was psychological, he backed up because Simplification humiliated him..........but it probably also cost Simp the win or place as well. In the Derby there will be other horses to do that duty, Simplification can just do his running since he's already proved he can wear a pace leader down.........he can now leave that duel to someone else.
Makes sense. There’s not only a lot fewer of them as compared to Feb.-April but they’re often already about as good as they’re going to be.
What I didn't do is research how many foals was born in each Month over time. January is a Good month for maybe
having the least foals born year over year, also I heard years ago December foals were held back and reported
to be born in January. No way to know if that is true>
