Thanks Molesap for the Florida Derby replay. I watched Florida and Santa Anita
Derbies for first time last night. First impressions:
1) Known Agenda's Florida Derby: When I watch a race like this that I didn't
bet on, I often wonder to myself "Why don't horses that I bet on ever
get a trip like that??" Saved ground with cover, tipped out in the lane.
Another perfect trip at CD? I take his weaving a bit through the stretch to be
boredom more than anything. Can not comment on the gallop out until I see
gallop out for all career races.
2) Santa Anita Derby: Did not get the impression that RTW is a need to lead
type, can see him stalking. Got the knowledge I was looking for in post race
commentary. To paraphrase Sadler, RTW was entered in turf races "to avoid
Baffert monsters" he would have faced on dirt (I thought the reason might be
that dirt races were not filling). For those still embracing the "jinx of
Apollo" note that RTW did not start as a 2YO but made his first start on
January 1. Will not be splitting hairs and will use despite light foundation.
