I don't get why people are so starry eyed about his win today. If he didn't go out and do that against this bunch we should have been worried.

Right?? I mean, I admire his consistency and it was a strong final time, but the field was so atrocious that I don't really understand how one's estimation of the horse could improve off this race. Still a ways to go, but judging from the post-race reactions I think there's a good chance he ends up a massive underlay in the Classic.

How bitter can he be?

Andy Serling‏ @andyserling
While it's a remarkable achievement that Voodoo Song has won 4 races at the meet, it's a shame he had to get an unfair advantage to do it.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Unfair advantage? I missed whatever Mr. Serling said, so what is he talking about? :?
Was he saying that the other horses were grousing because Voodoo Song is too fast? :lol:

He was referring to how Voodoo Song took a left turn into Bricks and Mortar.

I wonder if people actually watches races before commenting.

I say this as someone pretty anti-DQ.

78.4% of the time Serling didn't cash a ticket this meet he complained about the unfair rail/speed track bias.

Why he isn't at the bank this morning still counting his $14 winnings many multiple times is a complete mystery to me.

Nice bet Peeptoad!
