: I thought Thoro-Graph did pretty good in the Florida Derby. The two horses I liked in the race off the numbers were CAT THIEF and WONDERTROSS. They both ran well but not well enough. I gave the slight edge to CAT THIEF cause I felt he would get a [great] trip. Before the race I really felt like he could go wire to wire. That combined with the fact that his pattern was strong is why I gave him the edge over Wondertross. I felt like CAT THIEF [could] give you a 4 1/2. I wasn't looking for a major move off the 5's but I felt like he was still on the improve. That line on VICAR gets me all the time. I know it's positive that he came back to the 7 but is it the same as if he had run a 6 1/2 or 6?
I didn't like him. But if the off race 2 back was because he couldn't breathe ... TGJB
