Yikes, another longwinded baby. GRATEFUL
won race #3 at Saratoga today. 1-1/2 miles on the inner turf. 2:27 and change. She was up against older and the only 3yo in the field of 5. Nice win! Her record is now 7-3-3-1. She has never raced on the dirt. I wonder why. Broodmare sire is Unbridled's Song.
She totally missed the break. Hopped way up in the air. When they show the head on replay of the break you can see how high she hopped. Must have thought she could fly! Lol! She ended up trailing the field by a good bit at first. Kind of impressive that she still won after playing catch up like that.
Race video will be here by tomorrow: http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/ ... -on-8-7-17
