If Mayakovsky runs (which we don't know yet), and if War Emblem, Medaglia, and Proud Citizen draw the inside posts (which we don't know yet), the pace will no doubt be faster than it otherwise would.......Betting Saarland and not concerned with the pace???
Personally, I have Saarland from a bet out in vegas in february, and I think there would be a world of difference between a 45.2 and a 46.4 pace. Think the post doesn't matter???? Ask the trainers last year who saw their speed horses line up next to each other on the inside. I am 100% sure they would tell you that the draw matters.
