As with so many of us, there are a finite number of miles on the clock and even the most elite of elite athletes will tell you, that they all have moments when a twinge or a creak tells them that moment has come. Is it the same with horses at the top end of their sport? It would appear so.

FACT: Of the 219 G1 races at the Festival since 2003, only one horse with more than 33 career races, from a total of 125 such horses (o.8%), has won. They appeared in 77 of those 219 G1 races, for a loss of £122.50. 13 have been placed (10.4%) for an e/w loss of £175.37. The A/E is 0.16. They included PENHILL, SIRE DE GRUGY, CUE CARD (twice), JETSON, SIZING EUROPE (twice), ALBERTS RUN… you get the drift.

RULE: In any G1 Festival races, horses with 33 or more career races to date should be avoided.

HELP KEEP THE RACEWEB VOICE ALIVE

Annual domain registrations, site hosting, software licences, form guides, research costs and a host of other minor and but not inconsequential outgoings are the burden for all website owners.

Even the smallest donation can make the difference between the Off and On switch.

It’s not just that once in a while we actually prove accurate, and you possibly make a bit of pocket money, but occasionally, we might perhaps suggest a view that could possibly change someone’s mind. For the better.

That’s a lot of Maybes and Possiblies, but sometimes we have to try and change a plan or encourage them to move a mountain, and if that means we make you smile, or shout with anger, or shake with laughter, then Huzzah!

That’s your donation that did that. Thank You.
