But this is the second time in a row that Julien has had him in big trouble and both times he lost. This is the way jocks lose mounts. It was a horrible ride.
NBC didnt cover the race angles like ESPN did. they never said anything about how well union rags made up ground even with a bad trip. during the overhead cam angle that was focusing on bodemeister and ill have another i could see union rags. he was checked he weaved thru horses and was wide on the turn and still made up ground to get seventh. I could see his stride lengthen and him speed up, hes got a great stride. i would of loved to see it at a ground level angle. people complained about all the angles shown on ESPN coverage, i thought they were great compared to this years. if i were his trainer i wouldnt be disappointed too much. ill be jumping for joy he wasnt one of the horses to finish last and out of it. i too hope that he wasnt mentally troubled with that race
