    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Horse racing - horses are set back or disqualified all the time as a result of the post-race review by the stewards, generally but not always from something the jockey did. Review can be routine, self-initiated by the stewards, or because someone cried foul. That's why you have to wait until the race is Official before cashing your ticket. I know this sounds impossible, but I wouldn't be surprised if Endo pulls it together long enough to beat Kise. (take it with a huge grain of salt, I'm the poster child for bad picks) "clear yourself" - is that when the boat suddenly turns in a complete circle while the opponent sails off down the course?

    What a day in SekiToto - 15-20 (with no X-picks) gets a win...

    Day 9, part 2 Sd35w Kotohayato (0-4) has withdrawn. He's the first non-sekitori rikishi to withdraw since the tournament started.

    Yes, I agree and wrote something similar the other day (about not having faced the big guys yet). I didn't consider they'd cut him a break with the opponents if his record remains poor. OTOH, there are all those undefeated lower ranking guys to deal with. Moving Endo out of the rotation would give the schedulers space to deal with them should it be necessary.

    I've been wondering about this too. He usually doesn't do well when ranked up in the joi/"meat grinder" area, but 1-7 start is ridiculous. I'm guessing that he must be trying to hide an injury, or else there's something major bothering him behind the scenes.

    What is up with Endo? He finally broke that streak where he could not get KK when ranked M4 or higher. He fell back due to injury but is now back at M4 again - and has started out at 1-4. He's only faced 1 of the Sanyaku (losing to Ichinojo), so has several/all of them yet to face. I'm wondering if the guys at M1 and below will give him any help in reaching that elusive (for him) KK - he's 1-3 vs them so far. Maybe I should start a poll - will Endo win 7 of his next 10 matches?

    The NSK's kyujo list never gives info about injuries. I did a quick forum search here and found a post from July that mentions he hurt his knee. I didn't come across speculation about how bad or how long. Maybe a more in-depth search will turn up something, or someone else will know.
