Just watched the race and couldn't see any obvious reason for the poor finish. She showed such promise in her previous two starts, a first and a second.

Going Out finished 9th beaten by 26 1/4 lengths, on November 10, 2017, at LAUREL PARK in Race 6.
Off odds: 2.20

This is her first foal.

Principe Guilherme (c, 2, Tapit–Aubby K, by Street Sense) stamped himself as one to watch with an impressive debut victory beneath the Twin Spires, good for ‘TDN Rising Star’ honors.

That's a very nice-looking and scopey gal. Hope she does well.

Whisper Hill Farm's Plum Pretty Has First Foal to Race
...While Havre de Grace has had one foal to race for Whisper Hill Farm in Heavenly Grace, Plum Pretty is the second of those mares to produce a starter for Pope. The mare's 2015 filly Pretty at War is set to debut for trainer Mark Casse Nov. 11 at Churchill Downs.

"She wasn't like her mom," said Wayne Sweezey of Timber Town Stables, who manages Pope's mares and foals. "She's a lighter model, a little more feminine ... (she) was meant to go to (the Fasig-Tipton) Saratoga (Select yearling sale), but she got sick ... she wasn't blooming like she was meant to bloom, and we had to scratch her from the sale.

"It's probably fortunate at the end of the day ... that Mandy got to keep her."

Pretty at War will make her first start in a field of 11 other 2-year-old fillies going one mile on turf, a natural fit since she is by top turf sire War Front...

Blind Luck's second born also finished last in his debut, but had an excuse. His bridle broke and he took Jon Court for a gallop at the back of the pack.

I'm a Lucky Guy finished 10th beaten by 32 1/4 lengths, on November 11, 2017, at CHURCHILL DOWNS in Race 9.

Wow, seems like the Jackson's want to get rid of one of the only two La Ville Rouge fillies that they own. Never in a million years thought I would see one of Barbaro's sisters entered in a claiming race with a tag. Unless she has only three legs or two heads, they could probably sell her for much more than $25,000 at auction, if they don't want to add her to their broodmare band eventually.

That is a bit unusual. Her last race was a Allow Opt- but not in for the tag- and she was second by a head. She is entered here as a MTO - with the tag- for Saturday- and it may come off the turf because of rain ( at least where I am- north of that). Perhaps they cant find another race for her?

I wonder if they are scaling back their breeding. They've culled some mares lately. Valbenny (IRE) sold yesterday. Still, I can't imagine why they'd unload either of their LVR daughters just yet.

File this in the FWIW but not really Relevant Dept: a full sister to Giacomo (and therefore a half to a slew of nice horses) went for $9500 at Keeneland the other day.

Even if she did have three legs or two heads the FOBs would want to snap her up real quick. There's going to be a dozen-way shake for her after this race.

middleground, that mare you mentioned being 18 years old and not having produced any "big" horse probably contributed a lot to that low price.

I would expect she'll get scratched, even if the race comes off the turf. Among other things, she just raced (and came in second) the Friday before the BC, and they usually run them further apart than that.
