Anyone else think Runhappy should have Taken the Ack Ack? I think the betting public thought that.

He was working lights out leading into the race, so possibly the bettors were looking at that.

The stretch out to a mile coming off a lay-off concerned me.

I thought he would win by daylight, or be way up the track. If that makes any sense.

While I do not think 1 mile is his best distance, maybe we should be talking about the role the trainer plays in a runner's success?

And am I the only one who wonders how well Mr Z might have done if his connections would have entered him in listed or grade 3 events instead of all the grade 1s as grade 2s he has run in?

RH has another brilliant race or two in him. If he can be trained up to it. BC Mile is not for him.

Umm Joltman, Being at the Breeders Cup in Ca. and actually seeing the horse myself, RH is NOT working out, and he simply doesn't want to do anything. I don't know where you got that the horse , who doesn't want to work, "has a few more races left in him". But perhaps you need to be around the horse to say that about him.
