Very nice horse for Tom Amoss cleans 'em up in the Lecomte. Way outta it on the far turn and rolls by in the stretch. Quite the physical specimen - very slightly knock-kneed in the left front. Came back with lots of energy full of run. Been watching this one since closing in the slop in the bullring at Hoosier. Hope Mr. Amoss goes all the way with this bad boy.
Really? The Fair Grounds is notoriously one of the fairest tracks around and the configuration gives closers big chances in fast paced races that collapse, much like yesterday's Lecomte.
I like Tom Amoss and really like jockey James Graham but I'll be surprised if Ron the Greek ever beats Maximus Ruler again. I thought the latter ran a much stronger race yesterday.
Loved the shot of him just before he went in the gate. Right up in his face, up close, looking you right in the eye. He has a nice head and he looks intelligent.
Edited due to English obviously being my second, third maybe fourth language.
Not this meet. Speed has been very tough on the main track.
was hoping that was a super-duper telephoto lens and the cameraman didnt really have it all up in his face, if was in his face was surprisingly calm...
I thought RontheGreek run in the Lecomte was a classic case of the early speed stopping & Greek just picking up the pieces. However after watching the replay, I must give RontheGreek his just due, he started his late run at the top of the stretch & you could see that his strides were fluid & powerful, meaning this horse has running talent. Several horses took shots at Maximus Ruler while he was on the lead so in retrospect I feel his 2nd place finish was better than it looked, but he's going to have to learn to rate if he thinks he's going to beat RontheGreek going a longer distance.
If RontheGreek stays healthy he definitely will be a force to be dealt with at the Fairgrounds, yeah it seems Amoss has a live one for at least the La-Derby if not the Ky-Derby ala Friesan Fire last year.
