Everyone has been crying what a mediocre field of 3yo's are racing sat. BUT I beg to differ.
Is this possibly the BEST field of 3yo's EVER? I can't
believe what I'm seeing! I'm not talking about condition and forging horses & complex reads as to who
will run well Sat. BUT........................
What I did: I wrote down every Derby winners Top fig. before Derby day including their 2yo season. I compared this years crop using each horses top 3 figs. & compared them to the winners absolute single best number. Using Silverbulletday as an example her "0"
was equal to or better than all 16 winners, her two races at 4.50 were equal to or better than 12 winners;
earning a raw score of 40! The lowest score is 6 by
Desert Hero! (of course, most everyone picked up points vs Ferdinands 10, Alysheba's 9 and Unbridled's 8.5)If we remove them, SBD winds up with 31 out of a possible 39. Ecton Park, Desert Hero, Worldly Manner, Epic Honor all wind up with zero.(I don't have etbauer #'s). The lowest score after that is a 6 by LDK.
Am I crazy or is this a case of lies, damned lies &
statistics. Your remarks....if any. Thanks!
