Per Mark Casse via text, Catch a Glimpse "bled bad she collapsed. She's up and walked on the van and is back at the barn being examined"

Thanks for that info --I was watching TVG but didn't see the race and only heard that she collapsed--hoping she will be ok

They can recover from something like this. Likely they'll put her on antibiotics, maybe a bronchial medicine, give her lots of rest, and bring her back slowly, scoping after gallops and works. If all goes well, she could return to racing...unless they decide to retire her.

She won. 1:45.29 for 9 furlongs--that's serious racehorse time.

The nice Mandela mare Avenge went to the front and set brisk fractions; Lady Eli just set up off her flank as the two mares eyeballed each other. Avenge was the one who folded in the stretch.
If LE were a lesser horse, that little speed duel might have let the closer catch her, but LE is NOT a lesser horse. :P ;)

Brilliant and courageous win for LE. Was that a stakes record?

I don't think so, but from this DRF article:
Lady Eli, with Irad Ortiz Jr. up, was timed in 1:45.29 for 1 1/8 miles on firm turf. That is the fastest nine-furlong grass race this meet, by more than a second, according to colleague Brad Free.

The first winner for Frankel in the US (if I heard Colmus correctly), the bay filly broke last in the 6th at Belmont, a 6-furlong MSW on the turf. Despite her slow start, she came charging past everyone in the stretch and won going away. In a sprint.
Definitely a WOW performance.

Wow is right. 23 3/5 over the last 1/4 mile, coming from last to first. This performance is definitely worth watching on the Belmont replays - 6th race on May May 27. She blew through the field as if they were standing still. Super impressive.

The JERSEY GIRL S at Belmont today seemed to be "snake-bit" for race favorites.

Giant Oak's outstanding 3 year old filly and betting favorite, GSW Vertical Oak, was declared a non-starter after she was left in the gate. And third place finisher, MSP Sadie Be Good (Big Drama), who inherited the betting favorite role, was pulled up after the wire.

David Grening‏ @DRFGrening
Vertical Oak appeared to be in hands of starter. Should be a refund. We'll see. She was pulled up by Jose Ortiz

Sadie Be Good, 3rd in Jersey Girl, suffered a cracked cannon bone. She will need surgery, per @KPMRacingStable

Cracked cannon bone? Maybe that Belmont turf course has gotten a bit TOO firm? :shock: :?
I hope Sadie comes through her surgery safely and able to move onto her next career, which I would guess is as a broodmare?

Maybe, but the race was on the dirt.

I could have sworn I remembered that race being on the grass. Oops. Again. :oops:

After being off since last year's BC Distaff, where she finished third, Forever Unbridled has thrown her name into the best older distaffer conversation with a very nice win in the G2 Fleur de Lis at Churchill.
