True Speed Figures

True Speed Figures from Belmont Stakes Day

Now, hours after American Pharoah ran into immortality, and the first Triple Crown in the US since 1978, it is time to see what True Speed Figures each winner on the day in the stakes races received.

  • Woody Stephens:
    • March -2.0
  • Jaipur:
    • Channel Marker -5.5
  • Ogden Phipps:
    • Wedding Toast 16.4
  • Brooklyn Hdcp:
    • Coach Inge 6.9
  • Acorn:
    • Curalina -1.8
  • Just A Game:
    • Tepin -6.4
  • Metropolitan Hdcp:
    • Honor Code 15.8
  • Manhattan Hdcp:
    • Slumber -3.5
  • Belmont Stakes:
    • American Pharoah 9.5

To put a few numbers into perspective, Undrafted in last years Jaipur received a 23.2 and Coffee Clique received a 21.9 in last years Just A Game.  As for the Belmont Stakes, Tonalist received a -0.5 for last years.

To round out American Pharoah’s Triple Crown wins, his Kentucky Derby win was a -2.2 and his sloppy win in the Preakness was a -12.9, although the track conditions made it impossible for a good figure to be created.

Congratulation to American Pharoah on his Triple Crown win.  I am hoping that his next start will be in the Haskell at Monmouth Park so that then I will have a chance to see our newest Triple Crown winner.
