You're right, of course, about the pace and the number. My read on the race was in comparison to Vino Rosso's race, not the speed collapsing. That's why Haikal's closing fraction, and in comparison to Vino's matters as far as anticipating what the horse can do going farther (as compared to the others).
If if were only the internal numbers, I might agree. You could say the speed horses didn't run their typical number - and thus downgrade the winners. But we have the older horse 1-turn race for a comparison. And both still look good.
