bit of both. Santa has never won a race by more than 2L since first prep. he then wins the TJ at 6 with 33 starts under his belt by 3.5L going away. it didn't seem reproducible before the race and he's gone back to his normal form it seems.
there's "pretty good" and then there's what he did in the TJ.Will wait for the times but I think he's probably gone pretty good.
From a betting POV, it's a simple lesson in taking short odds about horses that get back in the field.
Right, but my point is we don't know. He might well have been able to do it again.there's "pretty good" and then there's what he did in the TJ.
he's pretty good most times he steps out, fairly consistent IMO. TJ was one out of the box and he looked priced on that run. Pre TJ he seemed like a get back Redzel type picking up some cheap ones but the TJ was anything but.
SAL would be more likely at Ascot starting at $20-1 rather than winning when it starts $1.85 or so. Can never seem to catch the horse despite me tipping my hat to it and it's record is fantastic. Would be a great horse to own.Well the bookies were matching the tote on the extremely obvious selection.
??? Where did you expect him to be in the run - would have thought anyone who can half do a decent speed map would have had him in exactly that position.Lol Bowman
