Can I just say it was interesting trying to follow THREE chestnut fillies with white blazes through that race??? :lol: I wasn't quite sure at first who was Social Club, Rock This Town or Lucky Lilac and I knew who the winner was before I watched. :lol:

Whatever faults American racing may have, our colored saddle towels are wonderful. Wish the rest of the world would adopt them. :lol: Trying to follow horses in the huge Japanese fields is a strain on MY eyes, and their habit of having the camera scan back through the field during a race is not helpful. :?
Why would you take the camera off the front of the field so you can show close-ups of the back markers? I can remember an instance when there was a potential foul by one of the front runners, but no one in the TV audience could see it. Late charges, winning moves, close often happens off-screen while the camera pans down the whole field.
Why? Why aren't we seeing the whole field at once? :roll:

When I've watched it's been a split screen, with the field on top (though from afar & small) while the camera pans down from front to rear. It does make it hard to see sometimes when a stalker starts their run, or if there's pinching/bumping/turbulence.

This time it didn't help, either, that all three fillies were in Sunday Racing silks and the only way to differentiate was by cap color (green, pink & white) or *if* you could see the number. :lol:

In my experience, there is often a split screen, but for only part of the race. When the field approaches/rounds the last turn, that split screen disappears. We are then 'treated' to the rundown of the whole field, from front to last, even though losing sight of the front runners is not, IMHO, a very good idea. :roll:

Ugh, ignore all that, I was thinking of the newcomer race that Gibeon (Deep Impact x Contested [Ghostzapper]) won, with the #2 Istvan bottled up with nowhere to go until too late. *facepalm*
