Jerardi: Tepin’s top form merits respect in Diana


If every horse were like Sheer Drama, this game would be quite a bit more predictable. The 5-year-old Sheer Drama entered last Saturday’s Delaware Handicap with recent Beyer Speed Figures of 91, 99, 93, and 94, a series of top performances that none of her six rivals could match. She won the Delaware Handicap convincingly with a 97 Beyer. Interestingly, Rosalind, who had never hit 90 on the Beyer scale, was favored, obviously due to the Chad Brown factor. As hot as Brown has been, even he could not beat the figures.
