I love Careless Jewel. I lost money on her in the Ladies Classic. I even went across the board on her, because I thought "no way she finishes out of the money."

If the wrong one show's up, forget it. Also, IMO, I'll still take Zenyatta to beat Rachel or Careless Jewel on any surface at any distance.
It would have been great to see Rachel, Jewel and Zenyatta at their peak in September...

That was a pretty cool race watching Careless Jewel dominate the field. Certainly created a buzz at Saratoga that day.
