I'm the Reason is entered to run on April 13, 2017, at OAKLAWN PARK.

I'm the Reason finished 9th, I think. :(
The impressive winner was Marcy Darcy (Smart Strike - Hot Dixie Chick).

So...what happens if I'm the Reason can't run a step, or at least is not competitive above a modest claiming level? Do you keep trying to find her level, or do you retire her to a breeding farm?
I know this was only her second race, so I suspect that Van Berg will try again with her. However, she's already four, so I would think that she's shown what she is by now.
It's disappointing...I loved Blind Luck. That little chestnut with the high-flying tail and the big kick was a favorite of mine. Hopefully, this is a case of talent skipping a generation, and I'm the Reason turns out to be a successful broodmare. :P

It's always been Dr. Mark's plan to breed her. I'd like to see her get another race, even though she didn't show much here. But the meet at Oaklawn is coming to an end I think this weekend. Wouldn't surprise me if they pulled the plug on her racing career. I'd like to hear Jack's thoughts on the race.

Has anyone seen the race? Did something happen to possibly explain the results?

JvB was interviewed on XBTV about her, he describes her as pretty talented with a very good finish in her works.

I watched the race several times looking for a reason why she did so bad. I just couldn't see anything. I thought she just didn't fire. In retrospect, this girl has been in training for a very long time without making a start. I suppose it's possible she just doesn't understand the whole concept yet? Dunno, guess we'll see if they move her to another track or to the breeding farm.

American Patriot, by War Front, won the Maker's 46 Mile (gr. IT). His dam is a full sister to Well Armed.

Well, there's still time to breed her this year.
