Too pretty to leave only in photos. The second one now belongs to Mike Smith. He was very happy with it. I gave it to him at Delaware Park. Thought I would share.

I wrote out a very long response to this blog before realizing that it really doesn't merit any serious thought- Rosalind was hardly a "high weight victim" when she carried 119 and lost to two mares carrying 118. I don't see why all these cognitive dissonance exercises are necessary... sometimes a disappointing race is just a disappointing race. There's every chance she just hasn't moved forward at four, but I'm sure we'll learn more in her next start.

it's still weird to me to see "gave weight, dug in gamely, won by a length" and "disappointing" in the same sentence, but, oh well.
Follow your heart. You need it. And where did it learn to scurry like that?
