2 year old BEYER leader board, 9/11/22 : Historical guidelines for a Derby Winner is a 92 beyer
or better in a race at 2 year olds. Last year  seems like we had 4 or 5 for the year.
This year We have 9 times a 2 year old was awarded 92 Beyer or better in these early sprints
4 times triple digits. I think this is impressive looking by eyeballs, Some races by track Variants
Show Caution by raw time , That can be a mirage on a souped up track. Suggest do your own DD
The first thing I look at with the speed numbers looking for 2 turn prospects for this tool, who's
numbers are going up stretching compared to their sprints and or numbers down. 6f-7f-8f-8.5, 9f.
and any of them can take a jump up at any time.

2-year-olds: male or female

Still find it hard to believe that Cave Rock's 2nd race scores a lower number than the first, especially with the competition in the second.  But I suppose coming up with those numbers are above my pay grade :)

As DM is the only track I visit in person each year, and having seen the races of the top colts listed, my eyes tell me they are special, and definitely worth following.  I'll be very interested in who races at Santa Anita American Pharoah Stakes on Oct. 8th.....
