I wonder about the pace and its affect in this race. for example, did the pace exhaust the front runners allowing the winner (Sierra Leone) to come barreling by late.

Or was Sierra Leone's trip strategy to his own detriment?

I suppose Sierra Leone will earn a good # from TG given his ground loss. But looking forward, this kind of deep closer tactic can also compromise a horses chance in a large field like the Kentucky Derby.

The idea that the pace setters would have lasted longer on a dry surface seems to have merit. I'll be somewhat keen on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th finishers in their next outing.

The Remsen, I won't be purposefully discounting its participants as in recent years. "Some Kind of" Key race? I think so!
