    The 2yo's often run the fastest mile rate for the card now. It's just frightening, not sure how good it is for their longevity ? The sprint lane seems to cause many drivers to just run along for the whole race, no slowing tactics in the races now.
    Don't die wondering !

    Interested in how you make the judgement the sprint lane is the reason drivers run along?

    Seems to have started since their introduction. If they stack them up like they used to they will often get out sprinted by the one on their back.

    Just my opinion . One of several reasons, many tactics have gone from racing now, bigger tracks and smaller fields also contribute.

    To me it seems the excitement has gone from racing, you only need to see the first 200m and the last 200m of the race now. Nothing much happens in between. Too many short races and almost no long races only middle distance.
    Don't die wondering !

    It may be a symptom of the fact that the dominant 2yo trainer trains them to lead and run hard

    I'd have thought the quicker the leader goes the more advantage for the sprint lane horse. Zapping the leaders energy while sprint laner is getting the suck along - the advantage from wind resistance would greater the quicker they are going. If you've run along less likely to run a zipping final quarter, hard for sprint laner to make ground when its a zipping final quarter.
