Who does Early Voting remind you of Gun Runner or Tiznow ?
Neither one…Storm Cat.
AH HA, That's what I thought !
I found this Interesting about Early Voting, Winning the Withers Stakes by 4 1/2 lengths over Un Ojo on a Muddy Track,
by a slow 9f time in 1.55.90,In Hand 3-4 wide held being clear Comes Back and wins the Wood same distance 9f in 1.47.96 about 40 lengths faster raw time. In the Withers the track variant is 28 (100-28=72) he is given a 68 -4 from the variant geared down 3-4 wide and clear from the field, awarded a 87 Beyer,
in the Wood a very fast track, he gets nipped at the wire by Mo Donegal perfect dream trip by
by a neck, in a very fast 1.47.4, with good splits, they gave a variant - faster than the last 3 year variant they have for use
the -- is the distance variant 100 on a level playing field . Early Voting +8 is a 108 variant ,awarded 96 Beyer, Skippy in the same race
3.5 lengths behind EV 104 to the variant +4, 88Beyer.
In the Withers He was geared down and had room to run faster on the Muddy Track, Meanwhile as Steve Colbert says
Un Ojo 2nd to EV in the Withers races first and Wins The Arkansas Derby and touted by Many because it was a Surprise to many
including Me, IMO later this was a distraction from E V before the Wood.
Off track, Super fast Track He belonged. Here is the results for his 3 graded stakes races. g3-g2 g1 in order.
His Preakness Time 9 3/16 1.54.54, is faster than his off track 9f Withers time 1.55.90 geared down My track. 4 1/2 Length win.
