The TDN Topic is a new feature for the TDN, designed to examine a topic in racing from several different angles, and then seek comment from our readers. In each TDN Topic, we ask people with different perspectives—from both inside and outside the sport—to comment on a hot-button issue. Today, we start with whipping.

   The Lumber Guy romped home by 9 1/4 lengths when facing fellow New York-breds in his debut at Aqueduct Jan. 28, earning a 99 BRIS figure, and was heavily favored facing open stakes company. The grey colt recovered from an awkward beginning and was soon in command through a :22 4/5 wind-assisted first quarter. He got to the half in :46.38 and, despite a stiff headwind in the lane, finished up well to be easily the best. "He came out of the gate and he bobbled a little bit," explained winning rider Julian Pimentel. "Right away, he took off. I tried to slow him down as best I could. Around the turn he relaxed for me and then, when he felt that horse [Brimstone Island] come to him, he took off again. He looks like a nice horse. He did that very easily. It was impressive."
