Saturday Quick Re-Cap: Early Speed Figures

Happy Easter to everyone that celebrates this day. If you don't celebrate Easter, I hope you are having a good Sunday. I've got time for a quick post today before heading off to visit family; below are the initial speed figures* for yesterday's graded stakes races, including the Wood Memorial, Santa Anita Derby and Illinois Derby.

*Beyer figures are preliminary numbers from the Formulator interactive charts. The Equibase figures can be found at their website.

Race Winner Beyer Equibase Bris
G1-Ashland Karlovy Vary 90 102 TBD
G1-Carter Jackson Bend 109 117 TBD
G1-Santa Anita Derby I'll Have Another 94 107 TBD
G1-Wood Memorial Gemologist 98 114 TBD
G2-Potrero Grande Amazombie 105 116 TBD
G3-Bay Shore Trinniberg 94 104 TBD
G3-Comely Broadway's Alibi 95 108 TBD
G3-Illinois Derby Done Talking 85 99 TBD
G3-Providencia Lady of Shamrock 84 100 TBD

Not surprisingly, Done Talking's Illinois Derby victory comes up on the low end of the list. Given how slow that field finished up, I really expected nothing less. In the battle of the Wood and the Santa Anita Derby, Gemologist gets the clear nod from both Beyer and Equibase. In fact, Beyer and Equibase are in agreement on pretty much every race from yesterday. We'll see if Bris views the results the same way when they release their numbers in the next day or two.
