Al, don't have a crystal ball, but I'm pretty sure if the racing gods see fit, AJW will be at the race of which you speak.....mucho congrats on a great race today and hope to meet you next Sat, if you're in attendence....
Cadillac, you have sharp eyes (although I guess it was also listed in the form). Wraps the previous race were mostly a preventative measure. Track was drying out following those heavy rains, trainer felt they would lessen risk of injury if he hit a bad spot.
By the way, I asked David if Tyler had an agent yet, and he didn't think so. Wonder if he'll wind up with Vic, or maybe Vic won't want any part of two books for a while.
Wraps do mean something.. Often they are a sign that there is infirmity, or the horse is hitting their selves, or the ground is irritating them.. Don't take it personally.. Every horse wearing wraps is not doing so for a negative reason, but many are..
I've been told by 2 trainers, including Ron Ellis, that adding wraps sometimes negatively affects a horses action. They both suggested wrapped horses tend to lift their legs a little bit higher when they are moving and racing..
Athletes in ideal conditions, will want complete freedom in their movement.. They don't normally need support at or near the joints...
