Would you rather break one length slow in a hundred-yard dash or in a marathon?
I thought we were talking about weight. What does this have to do with carrying weight? The effect of weight over distance, which is what we were talking about, has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with this point. Your original comment,
: "Weight will cost more lengths at longer distances, but a length is more important at 5f than at 10f."
is senseless because you could say "a length is more important at 5f than at 10f" REGARDLESS of weight, no? Weight is an independent factor and treated as such, el brain-o.
But I guess we're going to skip over weight now and move onto your penetrating analysis of what constitutes this 'more important' length.
Maybe TG should add a notation to op (off poorly) so it looks like this in sprint races - opSLWMIAA (meaning the horse was off poorly and the Sprinting Length Was More Important According to Alydar).
As for your patronizing admonition to read the intro and look at a beaten length chart, I'll just wave this off. I will point out, however, that you argue like a woman. You start talking about something, and really discussing it (weight), and then you just veer off into new territory (more important lengths) when you run out of gas. HP
