I don't see the fast splits in the F.O.Y. as being a legitimate excuse.

To me, it looked like he didn't like the longer distance and the higher quality horses breathing down his neck

if he can't hold his speed for 8.5 furlongs what chance does he have to hold his speed for 10 furlongs?

slim and none

Don't forget it was only his 2nd race & as disappointing as it was he only lost by 3 lenghts.

I think he'll try the Florida Derby next.
