for someone who claims to have been playing the horses for a long time, how could you not know that thier use to be more than 20 horses that ran in the derby? of course you didnt know what country the wood memorial is ran in, beyond me.
I don't play the Derby that much, don't follow it, just a question.
you follow horse racing but not the derby? just 8to1 and 12to1 shots? but you come on here with all your opinions about something you obviously have very little knowledge about. again beyond me.
you dont know which country the wood memorial is ran in but you have opinions about anything and everything in this sport? that would be like me walking into a mechanic shop and telling them how to rebuild a moter even though i had never seen the inside of a motor.
20 is way, way too many while 15 is way, way too small for a Stakes race.
The perfect years were 2001 and 2003 as far as field size is concerned, impo.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Seems like you would say that 2005 was absolutely perfect!
