[RC] gate-and go Tevis - Steve Shaw

EVERYONE at a gate-and go at Tevis decides what to do based upon how they KNOW their horse is doing. If they don't know they ask someone and usually take a 20 minute hold.
I have watched the top ten finishers, year after year, usually spend 10 to 15 extra minutes in the gate-and go VC's. The one time I didn't was last year to get away from Bob Spoor and Ann Hall 8 miles from the finish where 10th place was in jeopardy! Sorry Bob. (But you still got top ten.)
The people (not the horses) that think they can get a jump up by leaving as soon as they pulse down are the ones that I believe are of the 54% non-completions at the Tevis.
