This is a dream!

 

I bought a horse for $12,500 in 2003, cost me $20K total, and The horse earned $5500 in her career. I tried again a few years later and claimed a horse called Christmas Flys for $8500, she broke down in the race before we got her, and you can't pull the claim back. It was awful. You have to be super rich to be a success in this game. Good for them.

It's strategy, nothing more. No one was catching Justify regardless.

 

Sour grapes from Repole, who should know better. He entered two (Noble Indy & Vino Rosso) for the same reason but Noble Indy couldn't get to the lead to soften up Justify for Vino Rosso anyway.

 

Weak.

Yea, I was thinking the same thing.

 

On top of that, it seems like it would be a great strategy anyway.  

 

Is this frowned upon or something?

 

It happens all the time in NASCAR.

It is good strategy, as long as the Owners are OK with it.
