That might have been true during his stint at Fairmount (I wouldn't know, can't listen to that goober announcer say "harses"...it's "horses", you hillbilly), but it's not what I am seeing now.
If you are on the best of a bunch of cheap and / or sore harse...er, horses, yeah, you leave and say "come get me", but Hernandez is riding better horses now, and that "blast away" stuff doesn't work so much -- you have to work out a trip and use your mount's speed in a tactical fashion (unless you like to finish 3rd, 4th and 5th alot, aka "The E.T. Baird placings").
Which is exactly what Rafael did today in his lone win at CD today, in race 5 for Jonathan Sheppard (!)
Go watch the replay, if you didn't see the race. Superb ride.
I don't need to watch a replay of one damn race. I follow the guy a hell of a lot closer than you do. Most of his wins, regardless of track, are running on or near the pace. I'm not arguing with you about it any more.
