I might say that in conversation or posts.
In real life, when it comes to plunking down my actual hard-earned $$, I need more than that in order to place a wager. :)
But I really do wish you and dogs luck with Ram. I'm always happy for anyone who wins big $$ and he would if he wps here.
Biggest long shot ever to win the Preakness was Master Derby and even he was only 23-1.
Small fields and pools in Preakness and diminished interest after 20 betting interests in Derby and humongous interest pools in Derby cause less differential odds for record win payed in Preak.
Sadly Johnny Vee will get booed.
Philly punters would boo their mom.
Looking at The Racing Post run lines (very vague) it looks like France Go de Ina is an AW runner. Shows 4 races on the stuff. Brisnet pp's show he ran a 107 on a fast track. Probably a moot point. Info in case anyone's using him.
Thanks for the info. I have Bris PP's I don't see that 107 !
Are you reading a speed number that compares multiple numbers comparisons?
Bris pp's. Upper right where it states wins on Fst (107) 1-0-0-0 $15000.
Nothing about AW track runs.
That's there projected best breeding speed number on a fast track , and its misleading showing 1 race 1-0-0-0
The Speed number for that one race would be to the right of that $15,000 money won for all of the fast races (1 0nly)
its not a North American Race, they don't cover that track
look down at the next horse Unbridled's Honor his fast track projection the same (107) his record 3-1-0-0 speed number to the right 85, best...
below that line is the projected (off) track best number (107) actual 2-0-1-0 92 best off track .
Go over and down to his past performance.. his last race was his 92 off track number the Lexington at Keeneland 2nd place finish.
his best Fast Track effort was 2 races back Tampa bay 4th place 85 number. I hope that isn't confusing..
Those aren’t all-weather tracks in the sense that they’re synthetic surfaces; they’re just dirt. They just call all non-turf races that. If you click on the dates of his races it shows the conditions and you can see his have all been on dirt. Compare it to say Rombauer—the one at Golden Gate (the El Camino Real) says it was on all weather, Tapeta.
I think those figures are based on pedigree? Not sure how they calculate them—whether it’s just sire and dam/bms or if it involves more?
