Just finished the figures for last weekend, and to me the Derby got a lot more interesting. Both in terms of likes and dislikes.
Short fields, changing track speeds and high winds. Throw in fewer horses firingâ€” almost certainly due to no Lasix in graded racesâ€” and itâ€™s taking me about twice as long to do big days as usual.
Santa Anita had a card over the weekend where the first one turn dirt race had all first time starters except for one horse that had started once. It was 3 hours til the next dirt sprint, and the track out there has been changing speeds daily. People ask me why I leave boxes.
