It's time to see her in the winner's circle again. Stone cold exacta with Llandudno.
Great effort for Winding Way with first time blinkers. Congrats to the winner Pontchatrain and her connections. What a fun finish. Had the exacta :) (like only no bet)

  • tmallios1 · My thing with the race is,it does not matter to me where a horse is situated during the race.As long as they are doing it on their own. Every other race i saw her,she breaks and settles.Then she unleashes that powerful run that we have become so accustomed to seeing. In this race,Rajiv had her on a strong hand ride almost 20 yards after the gates opened.Look at the replay,Look at Johhnny right behind him.Judy was in a hammerlock,that is the type of race i expected.If she did not win,at least she would of finished up nice and strong.This would of set her up perfect for the upcoming Sprint. I do not think,that she got out of therace what she should have. I think to much emphasis was put in trying to win the race that day.In Rajivs defense.If he felt that she was not her normal self,and that he had to urge her to run.Then it becomes a new Ballgame for me at least.Then i am going into the race looking to beat her.Since she will most likely be odds on. · 186 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · I saw what you meant about Rajiv hustling her from the start. My only guess there aside from what you mentioned is that maybe he didn't want to be as far back in the early stages as they were in the Masters. I do tend to look at race placement. It's not a huge factor, but I have found that it does play a part in how a horse performs from time to time. · 186 days ago ·

Giving her a big upset chance in 2nd start off the layoff. Love that last work. Hate they brought Byrama back to a sprint. Don't hate her in this race, just wish they would've kept her long.
