What's with the American obsession with times/speed? The winner is still the winner, and the rest of the field is behind the winner. That's all we really need to know.
Really "all we need to know"?lololololol. Unless these horses are retiring after this race,we as handicappers need to know EXACTLY how slow(and why) they ran as it pertains to their next race.Anyone who says time is only important in jail,doesnt know a thing about playing the races .Time is of utmost importance in relation to the the other times of races THAT DAY.
