How tough is the DR division?

Post by Paul Sellers » 1 month ago

5 Stew-breds and a Ronnie Dee SW all fighting it out for the crumbs of a $15k allowance. Wow.

Dirt Routing is not a division for the faint of heart.

It's like the Frank Sinatra song, "If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere!"
Don't drink and drive! You might hit a bump and spill your drink?

It's the toughest division in the game, but I think that makes the wins (even the little ones) that much more rewarding!!

Even if you have freaks you don’t stand a chance.

Examples:

Adam Hauptman
Kulti

Both are well bred very sound freak Colts. Neither can run with the “big boys” and survive.

I've won stakes races with allowance gallopers in TS.

I sometimes have a hard time getting stakes gallopers to break their maiden in DR.
