more accurate would be "La Tia wins on the lead despite getting spooked or hurdling something on the track"

she did not try and jump over the inside rail

Fair enough. My point was that it was impressive.

What was impressive was that she paid $6.50 for the win...that was a gimme and so was the exacta!!!  Maybe cold coldpunch has  seen a lot of races where  the horse nearly jumped the fence and still wins, but where I come from it was impressive trophy

She ducked the whip.  (Twice actually--once earlier in the stretch.)  To determine whether or not she tried to jump the rail, you'd probably have to ask the horse.  Her jock said something to the effect that she decided it wouldn't be a good idea (which I took to mean that she was headed that way but didn't follow through).  I'd say it was pretty impressive, though.  For a horse to completely lose momentum then gather herself up and re-rally takes a lot of talent and heart.
