  • Linda in Texas · I think Dance Card is lovely. Watched her race, watched her win. So what if she veered toward the center. When she goes out to exercise where the heck do you think she runs. Most are exercised right down the middle of the track. It boggles my mind why bearing away from the rail surprises so many. · 502 days ago ·

  • Mary Z. · It seems that she's drifted to some degree in all of her races. Front wraps added after the first race, "off behind" and sent to the farm when her trainer first got her. His words in this report about Questing's ankle chip surgery: http://www.drf.com/news/questing-has-chip-removed-race-2013. When she beat older females it was in a 25K optional claiming race. How good is she? Good enough to run win with the physical problems that she does have, but for how long? I hope she gets some time off now, and of course, good luck to her. · 502 days ago ·
