Why qualify him in that time when you could've raced him in the open against Pena and the Joker?
S.Gesture won the Graduate 20 days ago.   Unless they want to say we have the fastest qualifier of all time.

BTW --Remmen stated this yr, like all of them he is the best horse he has ever had!   Guess he forgot he trained and raced Beach Towel?

Only Campbell states Mack Lobell was his best.  Every trainer and driver talk about their current horse as the "best".

Maybe Ray said that because Shark Gesture IS better than Beach Towel was. It's not like Ray to say things out of turn.

I heard they found out what Pena is using and wanted to try it out on a horse just to make sure and Ray volunteered Shark Gesture for the experiment. laughing guy

I don't think so.  Did you see Beach Towel race?  Refresh your memory -  Best 3 yr old ---Horse of the Year!
Beach Towel had an illustrious racing career that included victories in all the top races, such as the Little Brown Jug, Meadowlands Pace, Breeders Crown, Tattersalls Pace, Adios, Prix d'Ete and many others, and he established 3 world records and numerous stakes and track records.After leaving the track, his successful siring career included the 3-time Breeders Crown winner and world champion Jenna's Beach Boy, and his progeny have now earned over $46 million to date. But Beach Towel's most lasting legacy may be as a broodmare sire. His daughters have already produced the winners of over $33,000,000.00, including the sensational Somebeachsomewhere, who electrified the harness world during the past two seasons and was named Horse of the Year in both the United States and Canada for 2008.
As a two-year-old, Beach Towel won 11 of 13 starts, and set a stakes, track or season's record with every victory. As a three-year-old, he won 18 of 23 starts and virtually all the major stakes, and established himself as the richest single season Standardbred of all time ($2,091,86000), a record now held by his grandson Somebeachsomewhere.
Shark Gesture 22 wins in 69 races.
