LONG marathons are NOT exciting...BUT they are necessary and run at the
graded level or where in the world (on dirt) will breeders' know where
the gnetics for stamina are to come form on dirt?
Stake after stake are shortening and shortening all the time, so it is
not surprising that races as short as 9.0 furlongs are races of
survival, not the showecase of stamina.
Keep it up and the standard won't even be 6.0 furlongs any more.
