I remember this race. I had Informed Decision and it looked like that horse was confussed running down the lane. Rightly So was a fast runner that day and it was pretty amazing seeing how fast the race turned out.
She may have finished 3rd in a couple of races earlier in the season. But I think Informed Decision is showing signs of improvement now. Race by race. She's bounced back to win the Chicago Handicap. A race that saw Informed Decision have quite a tussel with Rinterval herself. Then took the Windward Stakes, beating Hooh Why. Julien Leparoux seems to always manage to get the very best out of Informed Decision. I think she's still going to be a big player in this year's Breeders Cup F&M Sprint. Much like Zenyatta. She's raced more often, and obviously prefers the synthetic surfaces to conventional dirt. But Informed Decision can, and has won over conventional dirt as well. Once coming in the slop at Churchill Downs in the 2009 Humana Distaff. The conditions for that same race were nearly identical in 2010. But Informed Decision ran 3rd in the 2010 Human Distaff. But I think she'll be even more effective over a dry, fast Churchill Downs track. Provided those late Autumn rains that can so often plague Kentucky in early November stay away.
