I have to agree with that guy ....I also thought the driving title would have been much closer...Jody Jamieson...could easily have taken it again....a lot more wins and money...top stake horses also...Federal Flex and Santanna Blue Chip to mention a few ...don't get me wrong I am happy to see Paul win it...also very deserving of it...but I just felt it would have been closer!! I guess Stats are out the window in these selections! I also think the Beach helped seal it for Paul!!
