: Anyone but me notice that Belmont seemed to be a key negative factor this year at Churchill? Horses which had their final prep at Belmont accounted for over 40% of the horses which went off at single-digit odds, including four of the five dirt race favorites, yet managed just two in-the-money finishes. By my count, over a third of the BC starters had prepped at Belmont. Thoughts, anyone?
I noticed this as well and am currently just trying to make
some sense out of it. Were the races run at BEL
so taxing that they drained these horses, or werer the other races
a little better than they appeared. very
