Bad Connection: Good Debut but Tired Late. Watch Works for Next Start

Not a bad debut as she broke on top and raced outside of a three horse duel up the backstretch. She made a run for the lead entering the stretch, but tired in the late stages to finish midpack. Conditioning can only help this filly and she might not stop next time out.
