1) You're obviously 55 years old. Or maybe 6. In any case: Yeez man, let it go..
2) You are misunderstanding the point of this discussion. I don't think anybody is questioning that Stormy Liberal ran a big new top at age 6. How big a new top is questionable, but I don't see how anyone could argue that he didn't run the race of his life, by far, and I haven't seen anyone credible doing it either. Certainly not on this board. It's how he could do that, that is troublesome. I think you stand pretty alone when you basically argue that it's due to randomness that is to be expected within a standard deviation. This was the fastest turf race ever per TG. The study you so desperately try to bend to your will, is not about athletes that already is challenging the boundaries of equine capabilities. Taleb has a brilliant name for people like you: IYI.
