Call me crazy, but that was not impressive at all.  She should have gobble her workmate up without being ask.  Did she even finish in front of her by the time they finished up?  I did not like that work at all.

Thats what I kind of thought too. According to Sheriffs, however, thats the way he wanted her to work. He did not want her blowing by her oponents because she loses interest. Hes 19 for 19 with this mare so who knows her better than he...heres the link

Sure, but what is he going to say? She worked terribly? We're concerned? Mike was pumpin on her inside the 1/8th pole, and she was not covering ground like she normally does.  I have seen many of her workouts, and that was not what they normally look like...

It was a work, not a race.  She was very smooth, focused and businesslike.  Mike flicked his wrists at the finish line and she accelerated like she was supposed to.  She's just fine.  However, if you don't like what you saw, bet against her.

Thank you for being a voice of sanity. I'm pretty sure they know how to handle her. But by all means, if you didn't like the way this video looked, there are plenty of other options to choose from.

I believe she does not win the Classic if she goes there. But one interesting part if she goes, I do not think she is fast enough to win this year but her heart is bigger than any other on the race, so does heart win over speed or speed over heart. I will be using her underneath in the tri's and super's but not on top.  Darin who's your morning line choice here?

Well I would say  all of her races this year were just works pointing to the BC all whole year so do what you want with that..
