Jerardi: Contention runs deep in Excelsior


There is no way to know what might have happened if Shared Belief had not gotten hurt in last Saturday’s Charles Town Classic. To win, he would have had to beat a track record that Moreno set, so it was not going to be easy under any circumstance. The amazing Moreno got a 105 Beyer Speed Figure, not far from his career-best 109 for his Whitney win last year. You’ve got to love a horse with four wins and $3 million in earnings.
