Quote: from davidjohnson on 8:25 pm on Feb. 28, 2007[br]Tell me what is so exciting about seeing a South American horse of which you know absolutely nothing about win a handicap against a number of horses that are too exposed to be competitive off similar marks in this country. Also have a look at how about 80 per cent of the horses that run there are owned by the Maktoums and/or their associates. It’s hardly sport when you are competing with yourself. Any horses that prove themself to be potentially smart end up being cherry picked by Mohammed himself. <br>

Surely this is a good thing with horses such as Formal Decree available at great prices due to the lack of collateral form? Do you also then have a problem with the Breeders cup?! Look forward to hearing your response to this..

Also, is the Irish Derby irrelevant when O’Brien runs half of the contenders?
