Interesting drive

Recommended Posts

Just throwing out a comment re Blair Orange drive on Hampden in r10 at Winton yesterday.  Had ample time to peel out of trail before home turn. He decided to stay in trail and allow another horse to build momentum and beat him. Did he give hampden the best chance of winning? Was he spoken to? not in stipes report

The winner pulled away from him over the last 100m. Might have made the winner work a tad harder if he'd bumped him 3 wide on the turn, but in the end I don't think it mattered. I'm sure if Blair thought he was going good enough he'd have come out. The last 100m showed he wasn't.
