Hard Spun Foals

Postby Happy Endings » Sat Sep 14, 2013 2:36 pm

Hard Spun has 13 runners today, including one stakes runner (My Lady Lauren); 6 runners tomorrow, including one stakes runner (I Earned It Baby); and 1 runner on Monday, a stakes runner (Vegas No Show). So it's a busy few days.

My Lady Lauren is entered in the Judy's Red Shoes Stakes at Calder today.
I Earned It Baby is entered in the Barrett's Juvenile Stakes at Fairplex tomorrow. This will just be his second start. He won his debut last month.
Vegas No Show is entered in the Ricci Tavi Stakes at Delaware Park on Monday.

Messy Barrett's Juvenile Stakes. I Earned It Baby pushed wide by Hi Fashioned on 1st turn and lost position, then came back and dueled with Hi Fashioned and bumped a number of times with that one down the lane. There is an inquiry. Finish stands, so I Earned It Baby stays second. That contact on the first turn threw IEIB off his proper lead and made him lose several lengths. He made it up on the back stretch, but I have to wonder how much that regrouping took out of him. I think there should have been a DQ, but nobody asked me...

Great effort for IEIB, regardless. He looks like a very good one.

I just watched the replay. It was a rough race. You could sure make a case for taking the winner down.

I was really amazed that he stayed on his feet on that first turn. He really got knocked out of his stride. If he hadn't lost 3 or 4 lengths on that turn, I think he would have won. But, I feel like we'll see some more good races from him. That was only his second start. He seems like a fighter. He had a troubled trip in his debut, too. I look forward to seeing him get a clean trip one of these days...then we'll see.
