Does anyone have any figures on how many horses use the sprint lane to win? From my (admittedly casual) observations, there are not that many. I used to have a theory that horses did not like passing others on the inside? Anyway, I can't agree with those who dislike the sprint lane, on the small courses we run on it is absurd that half the field gets bottled away in every race. Maybe they could do away with the sprint lane, but only run one line of horses off the mobile.
