Supanova: Ability In Question

Mailbag from a no nonsense form student

keep-calm-and-study-hard-297 (1)The intellectual pursuit of assessing racehorses and their ability can be a fascinating one. Whether a racing purist, a punter or a full-time or casual student of handicapping, we all have varying barometer’s of assessing a horse’s performance.
The trick is to probably divorce emotion and financial ramifications from the overall rating.
Take the first timer Supanova, who ran in the fourth race at the Vaal today.
He ran fourth beaten 2,10 lengths by the winner Silver State, after being backed from 20-1 to 2-1.
This short note was delivered to the Sporting Post Mailbag earlier today. We have opted to withhold the writer’s name.
Dear Sir
Would you have the contact details for trainer L J Erasmus.

I’d like to let him know that his horse, Supanova, is a complete and utter piece of shit.

Thank you
