Have to agree w/ Superman on this one! The Meadowlands' racing style is pointed more towards aggressive movement and trying to put the best horse close to or if not to the lead. I also feel that Georgey tried to gun a horse who is simply too big and slow out of the gate. Dave Miller suits his style and will definitely race him from behind. Plus, in these types of races you're better off sitting back and grabbing cover into those quick splits. As far as the equipment goes, well, the hopple extension could be an answer. However, it could also be a good excuse for a bad judgment call by the pilot last start. Only time will tell, I guess. Why is it that so many posters write and sound like Tom Wendt?
