This was the case almost the entire 3YO Season in all of the preps. I even pointed this out earlier in the season in a post that things seemed to be so even among this years crop the ground savers were always winning.
I'm not upset that Tacitus probably ran 3-4 points better than the winner but still lost. If they didn't think they he could handle the kick back or wasn't nifty enough to maneuver out of pockets and holes that is one thing. But to think you can give up 65 feet of ground and win a Grade One is stupid.
I backed the horse up to place. But I had to bet way more than ever want to Win and Place. I could not get any horizontal bets going so long enough to end up with him as the single on the last leg for a big score. I deposited more $$ and bet out. You never want to do this. As I told a good handicapping friend of mine before we both slammed down on him. There are a million things that can go wrong. Don't assume they cant happen to you before a major wager.... I survived to fight another day!!
