“Whoa, We’re Halfway There…”

Eight rounds down, eight to go. And of a very different composition, there’s little guarantee the second half will politely stay on the rails laid down by the half that preceded it.

Following an opening eight rounds made up of five Short Tracks and three Half-Miles, the second half is constructed like a compact, self-contained Grand National Championship, sporting three Miles, two TTs, two Half-Miles, and one Short Track.

He’ll need to maintain (and even improve upon) his consistency over the next eight races – a huge challenge even before taking the two TTs into consideration – if he wants to successfully complete an upset bid for the crown. But whatever happens, Robinson has already locked up a successful season,…
