let's compare good racehorses and rats
Balmoral avg per race $74k
Yonkers avg per race $78k
Nothing to brag about.
Spot on! And how many of those Yonkers races had negative pools of significant size due to the overwhelming favorites? Exclude those and then compare the average per race. Balmoral wins.
Yonker and Pocono remind me of the kid whose parents are multi-millionaires and buy him the best of everything, including coaching. Then he comes up against a poor kid with talent and gets destroyed.
