RE: [RC] Man o' War - heidi

I am personally of the opinion that the one of the big problems with the
breeding of the American Thoroughbred is the lack of emphasis on
breeding horses that can go the classic distances.

Kat, I think you're onto something there.  And sadly, the primary reason for 
shortening the races is the pressure from the betting public.  They don't want 
to sit through a race that might take more than 2 minutes.  Sad, sad, sad.
