"Wins and Whacks"
With two episodes to go, Tim takes the Illinois-bred champion River Bear to Fairmount Park to compete in their Tex's Zing Stakes. Then head back to Arlington as Free Fighter turns the tables on Exchanging Kisses.  Aboard Quiet Determination, an incident causes Tim to claim foul, and the excitement continues with one of the most dramatic images captured so far on the helmet cam.

Again, nice work on this series Jessica and Tim. One is able to get a good sense of how gutsy these jocks are navigating through tight quarters.

Another good one Jessica, but I'm really bummed Timmy didn't wear the helmet cam for his ride on River Bear. Would love to get an in the irons look at riding the best sprinter in Illinois. Was it something where the Fairmount stewards wouldn't let him, or is this an Arlington exclusive sort of thing?

The elbow to the camera was pretty cool to see.   Grin

Great episode.
I liked the "dramatic score" playing in this episode.
Well done Jessica. Will you be doing something like Behind the Silks at Gulfstream this year?
