Be careful in reading too much into pull rate data. On average, you are dealing with a more prepared and more experienced ridership on 50s, so you may be comparing apples and oranges.
Yep and you would think the 100 mile horses were even more prepared than the 50 mile horses - but alas the metabolic pull rate for the 100 mile horses is a little over 3 times that of the 50's.



    The pull rate stats are on David's side. While an individual horse
    have an issue between 25 and 50 miles - in general the pull rates for
    the 25 to 50 are consistent with the mileage difference in the
    In fact up through 80 miles the pull rates are pretty consistent.
    However, for the 100, the (especially metabolic) pull rate is 3 to 4
    times greater than in the 50. There is a quantum jump between 50
    and 100
    miles in th pulls that is not present between 25 and 50.
