That was the worst drive I have seen in a long long time .....what a dumbf*ck
He could have dropped to the rail he could have followed Bullville parked the mile and still had a better shot than going 3 wide at the half , that was pure stupidity !!!

Not to mention he cost me the pick 4

I didn't bet either.

The drive told me allot about the guy too - if you have THE horse, you find THE driver.  You don't screw with the Paul Macdonell's of the world.

He did have some very classy comments.  There is always going to be human error involved in horse racing.

Add Macdonell's name to the list of chokers...Bill Buckner, Leon Durham, Scott Norwood, 2008 Memphis Tigers (college bball), and last but certainly not least Paul Macdonell!!

Epic race.

I know they're not used to a microphone in their faces, but the interviews with Jesk and Seekman hardly seemed to reflect what they'd just accomplished.

Exposure breeds personalities, which I guess is why harness racing lacks them.

           I dont often interject on bad drives cause I've seen a lot of bad drives in my time !  I think under the circumstances this was the worst I can recall . He made 3 mistakes in my opinion !  The first was leaving in front of the # 1  with a few outside horses leaving he didn't need to leave at all and just let them settle and brush up to the lead nobody would try to hang him .

          #2   Once he did make that decision he could have just dropped to the rail in fourth and again let the leaders settle and brush up and win easily !

          #3  Once he abandoned the above and was parked with cover why not just stay there instead of going 3 wide like a NUT thinking he was driving Secretariat in a racebike .

           It was absolutely pathetic to see a truly great horse get abused by a braindead over confident driver !

           The ride reminded me of Big Browns horrible ride !

           The thing that gets me is when interviewed the driver or the jock never admit they were responsible for giving the horse a bad ride or drive !

           ABSOLUTELY SICKENING !          RTP

4. He didn't have a replay to watch the race over!

It was neither smart or great.He was trying to get off the rail and had nowhere to go and ended up back on the rail just it opened up.It was nothing but luck.

The smart drive (being sarcastic here) was the drive on PAMPERED PRINCESS in the HAMBO.Only check the horse does not get in her career.Let me know when TAKTER puts him  back up on a trotter.

So that means even if you were driving, Southwind Lynx wins the race !!  Grin

The win last year was a replica of roughly 75% of Jim Morrill's Big M wins.

That said, Tetrick is #2 only behind Sears but it's helpful to get some experience driving in the big races where mistakes are not only magnified by remembered.  BTW, how many starts did the Princess have against the boys?

I never said anything close to that.What I meant was take any of the top 10 at the Meadowlands and you could have gotten the same result.

Tetrick is not #2  IMO.He happens to be the most popular flavor lately and the busiest driver.I don't know if you were the one who mentioned John Campbell in his prime in other threads or not but look where the guy is in avg $ per start and where he finished last year and any full yr he has competed.

PP only raced twice against the boys and was lucky to get out in the elims and then given a terrible steer in the finals by Tetrick.Like I said before let me know when TAKTER puts Tetrick back up on one of his trotters over any other decent driver is around.
