You know, I actually like all three of you guys (Alydar, BJ, & HP) because aside from
writing well, when it comes to handicapping,
I feel I can learn from you. I don't post
much here anymore for numerous reasons,
but a big part of it is just what this thread
shows. Degrading or be-rating someone because they don't understand is different from doing the same to a blow-hard who can't
walk the walk. You three guys obviously can
walk the talk so ease up a bit.
I am of the opinion that weight is NOT
a factor at races shorter than 7f and
that only imposts of 121 or better are worth
concerning ourselves with in 7f races.
As the distance increases weight is more meaningful and is even more dramatic
on a wet track (horses covered with mud
are in effect carrying more weight). This
last point isn't much of an issue with speed types because they won't be hit with
mud until they are through, if at all.
