Since 1992, 26 of 29 (89.6 percent) Kentucky Derby winners have entered the race with a career-best Beyer Speed Figure of at least 95. This number would be 27 out of 29 if Maximum Security had not been disqualified in the 2019 Kentucky Derby, gifting Country House with a victory.Apr 20, 2021
Favorites winless in the last 7 Jim Dandy. Dandies.
During that time, 5 winners of Triple Crown races have all been beaten in the 1 1/8-mile race that serves as the local stepping-stone to the Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers on Aug. 28. So the 80 - 20 rule says odds are good for EQ. Also super favs have exhausted the odds,by failing as in last Saturday 5 ror 5 Philly losing, Knicks Go went. And Hot Rod Charlie take down
EQ faces colt 3yo-peers who just never ran a good race at the G1 level.
1/2 is oddly the number el fresco. I say it to be $2.60 and South to $2.40.
Avoid cave man tickets.
Buy -construct a full $2 (x number of picks in other legs ticket" The hard ten picks.
Then 50ty center with vigorish multiple horse in legs where using the potentials of a 7-1 or better sets your ticket compounding.
How many entrants a year on average have a Beyer 95 to their credit Dogs?
|2||Like the King||52-1||86|
|9||Hot Rod Charlie||6-1||99|
More about Beyer above later.
Sorry, I didn’t mean you had to list them. I figured you would know that I knew it was half the field :)
I wanted to elaborate:
The top Beyer 100 (9 panel PP) for this Derby didn't have enough speed rating # nor a par time for the anticipated Derby at a mile an eighth pole come the running of the Derby. The 100 B was 17th in Derby beaten by and winner of horse running 2nd that day of the 100 mark. Santa Anita Derby.
About Beyers in general:
Horses coming from say Oaklawn - weather surface conditions, PID + Turfway plastic, GP West dull numbers would be "surface challenged".
Run Happy whose banner ads we proudly hail and now wave at race tracks won his first G1 at Spa at 7 fl. Coming from PID his Beyer was not the best of a spreadsheet, his actual time was very good...And good horses from PID typically move up in better times off excellent times there.
Track conditions do affect the rating. That comes to play in the single raw stand-alone Numbah.
The other free square might be Silver State on Saturday. He seems to be running "lights out" as well.
Tough money making race to bet. Might have to hope and squeeze in Informative as a long shot ala Lexitonian.
