Probably someone that wanted to protest the endless politicking that went on for Zenyatta leading up to the vote -- endless retirement ceremonies, a full-page ad in the DRF...it was ridiculous.

He must have voted that way in protest and because he always bets his figs. Icon Project got a 113 BSF in one of her races. Zenyatta got a 112. However, I've seen claimers get a 100 BSF before.

You mean there was a horse with a higher speed fig than Zenyatta?

Well, surely she didn't deserve HOY, then.

Not sure what you mean by this as RA also got a 116 in a race. My point is, higher BSF's don't mean that the horse is better, especially for a closer who only runs as fast as they have to. By the way, Zenyattas 112 in the Classic is the highest route BSF ever recorded.

Lava Man's 2005 Hollywood Gold Cup was 120.

Lava Man's 120 was already mentioned. Bellamy Road also hit 120 on the Beyer scale in the Wood -- also a route.

Rachel earned a 116 in the Haskell last -- 1 1/8 mile race that is also a route.

You must have meant something else Steve.

And by "repeat," you mean, "say something I've never said once before?"

That's not what "repeat" means, dude.

Ghostzapper I believe is tied for the biggest BSF ever in the Classic at 129 along with Silver Charm. I could be wrong, however, I read it once and am going off memory.

Remember, that's AFTER Beyer made his adjustments in 2009, that essentially added 4 points to every synth number.

So, in comparsion to synth numbers of past years, it was a 108.

They only changed back to the beginning of 2009.  doh

You are one of the most misinfomed posters on this forum.

Besides, what difference does it make? Didn't you spend about 8 posts just telling us how BSF means nothing?  doh

Do you know what his BSF was in the Classic? Did he receive the highest BFS in Classic History. Andy Beyer adds 10 to every horse that runs on the East coast. That's an angle I use when handicapping.
