Stormy’s in Style: More Favorable Pace Could Help Chances

Finally had a clean break and she tracked the two leaders up the backstretch off what seemed to be a fast pace. The filly made her bid entering the stretch and raced evenly to finish 4th.

Tap It Up: Clean Break and Better Placing Can Improve

Made her first start in blinkers and is usually forwardly-placed. However, she was last early and that hasn’t been the place to be sprinting over this turf course. She did make up solid ground around the turn and did get up for 4th. A clean break and a better placing early could help her move […]

Made her return in a small field and was asked for more early speed than usual as she sat just two lengths behind the leader up the backstretch. She didn’t seem to hit her best stride until right before the wire and a more patient ride might help her chances next time out. Next Upcoming […]

Ohana Honor: Stuck in Traffic Early Can Improve

Many will likely look at how Equal Protection had nowhere to run in early stretch as the 6/5 favorite, but ‘Honor had a similar trip. He seemed to be spinning his wheels around the far turn, but had to wait behind runners in early stretch and rallied well in tight quarters throughout the rest of […]
