English term or phrase: finished in the money in 19 of 33 starts
There's a pattern there. A glance at Medal Winner's career box reveals he's ***finished in the money in 19 of 33 starts*** while winning only twice. Another glance at his comment lines reveals he's usually off slowly, wide, and in traffic. The crowd often expects that today is the day he'll finally get the job done - he only needs a clean trip. But Medal Winner simply lacks the positional speed and/or athleticism to get a clean trip!

Thank you in advance!

只跑出第一名两次。 This is a horse race. There are win and place. Win is first. 2, 3 are placed.
